The FBI and Satanic Ritual Abuse
People who have been satanically abused want to be healed. They want to be free to live normal lives and enjoy loving relationships, worship God, develop their God-given gifts and talents, pursue education, and just be left alone to make choices and live their own lives. However, most of this has been denied them because the abuse they suffered caused them to be prisoners in their own mind under the control of other persons or the demons placed in them through the abuse. Their minds have been broken into many dissociated pieces making it difficult if not impossible to put together their own memories or make sense of their lives.
Of course, anyone who possesses any sense of goodness or decency desires to see these people set free and healed. However, the obstacles to this ever happening are gargantuan and numerous. These obstacles are mostly in the minds of other people who have believed a panoply of lies regarding the whole subject of satanic ritual abuse. Here is just one of those lies I would like to debunk.
Lie – Satanic ritual abuse does not exist. After all, the FBI states that there is no such thing—it was all hysteria and hype that arose in the 70s and 80s.
Unfortunately there was an extensive report on this subject written for the FBI by FBI agent Kenneth Lanning in 1992 in which he states:
After all the hype and hysteria are put aside, the realization sets in that most satanic/occult activity involves the commission of NO crimes, and that which does, usually involves the commission of relatively minor crimes such as trespassing, vandalism, cruelty to animals, or petty thievery. The law enforcement problems most often linked to satanic or occult activity are: 1. Vandalism 2. Desecration of churches and cemeteries 3. Thefts from churches and cemeteries 4. Teenage gangs 5. Animal mutilations 6. Teenage suicide 7. Child abuse 8. Kidnapping 9. Murder and human sacrifice. Valid evidence shows some “connection” between Satanism and the occult and the first six problems set forth above. The “connection” to the last three problems is far more uncertain.
It should be obvious with this summation that there can be next to no help from law enforcement or anyone in the criminal justice system for people who have suffered satanic abuse. I know of women and children who have suffered such abuse at the hands of their husband/father and although the mothers left the home and took their children with them to protect them, the courts gave the fathers rights to have the children half the time.
If children in these families remember the events of a satanic ritual, these things are so bizarre usually no one will believe them—especially when dad is standing there looking perfectly normal and possibly being a respected member of the community with a respectable job. Another problem is that very often the children don’t remember the abuse because of dissociation. It was so horrible they experienced a split in their mainstream of consciousness whereby a group of personality characteristics was separated out as though belonging to another person and the memory stored in this dissociated part. Along with the memory being locked away deep inside due to the psychological split, a demon is usually standing guard over that part to make sure it never remembers or speaks about what happened. Of course, dissociation in such cases is not brought out in court, one reason being that our universities teach that dissociation is extremely rare, so rare that a professional counselor might never see it in their professional career. This is just so not true! I have witnessed it over and over again in many people in my twenty-seven years of SRA ministry. (In my book, Dissociation Revealed and Healed in Scripture I show a detailed description in Scripture of the process of a part splitting off and being restored by Jesus. This is revealed in a deeper, scriptural revelation that is undeniable when seen as I uncover the word meanings, etc.)
I personally took a report that I heard first hand to the FBI that detailed human trafficking, child prostitution and child porn operations that were reported to me by a woman in whom the details to these operations and lucrative businesses had been stored by her abusers who never dreamed anyone could ever find them. I didn’t find them. I prayed and Jesus did, but no one would take me seriously and nothing was ever done about it. Satanists frequently store their detailed information in the mind files of their chosen victim knowing that no one would ever believe that person should she remember and most likely she wouldn’t remember in the first place.
An acquaintance of mine who suffered satanic ritual abuse had a professionally trained little service dog who helped her with the trauma and heartbreak of having lost several babies that were taken from her at birth. The last step of getting her dog officially certified was to get the signature of her physician. When the doctor asked her why she needed a service dog and she answered because she was satanically abused, he said he would get back with her on that. The next day she was notified that he refused to sign her certification form because the FBI says there is no such thing as satanic abuse or satanic ritual abuse.
With the limited understanding I have of the whole subject of the FBI, it appears to me that Kenneth Lanning’s report and the FBI’s acceptance of it has effectively shut down help for multitudes of abused people. I personally know someone who works for the FBI who told me if a person’s report mentions Satanism or dissociation it automatically gets trashed in the round file. I knew this before I made the report that my husband and I personally delivered to the FBI, so I omitted those terms which made the whole thing difficult if not impossible to explain.
So you can see what an enormous block to justice and healing for satanically abused persons this is. People all over the United States and perhaps other places in the world look to the FBI to confirm or deny the reports of this kind of abuse that pour into their offices. It effectively slams the door in the faces of people who need help not only from the FBI but from professionals of all kinds who look to them for truth. In this case, the truth isn’t there.
So what is the answer to this dilemma? I don’t have all the answers, but I know that Jesus is aware of this and wants it changed. We, the church, are God’s spokespersons—his mouth, his arms and legs in the earth to do his bidding. We the church can attack this situation with prayer. We can tell others about it. We can lend an understanding ear to someone who is suffering from this abuse. We can help them find safe shelter. We can help them with their financial needs. We can write about it on our blogs and websites. Those of us whom God is calling into this ministry, can actually release God’s power for them to be healed, but we need to be willing to set aside our own preconceptions and fears along with our own selfish interests in order to do this.
