You mean to tell me a black mass is not degrading to women? Of course, I've
never attended one, but the one's I've heard about sure were. Maybe those
"religions" are just the figment of someone's vivid imagination. I hear
that protestants across America are trying to have Harry Potter banned from
the school and libraries because it preaches Satanism and witchcraft. Much
to the surprise of J. K. Rowling, I surmize. I doubt she thought it had
anything to do with the "real thing." Could it have been a meme dream?
