Hell on Earth

Many fundamentalist Christians believe in the conspiracy myth that secret satanic circles are carrying out clandestine Black Masses involving ritual child abuse. Their diabolical goal would be to establish a new world order that contradicts God‘s plan: by promoting abortion or the spread of homosexuality and other sinful and ‚deviant‘ practices, the world shall be transformed into a living ‚hell‘. Once evil reigns, there would be no more room for moral values and religious convictions, let alone for the purity and beauty of Christianity.

However, anyone with faith in this myth is not blessed: the result is rather hysteria and paranoia, as the Satanic Panic of the 1980s showed.
