Here is an interesting one from way back when.
In 1990 twenty one children were taken into care following police raids on 5 homes after it was alleged by social workers that the children had been sexually abused and forced into devil worship:
The Rochdale case was triggered by two young boys’ abuse fantasies. The younger boy, aged 4 at the time, described being present at ritual sacrifices of infants and seeing cult members robbing graves in a local cemetery. A very similar ritual abuse case broke out in the Orkneys shortly afterwards; more children were taken into care.
Now, you have to ask yourself how a 4 year old boy could make up such allegations.
Never the less, after the families of the children challenged the care orders in the high court, the judge decided that the two boys were making it up and gradually, all the children were returned home.
Tellingly, there was a gagging order imposed forbidding anyone from speaking out about the satanic abuse.
And guess who else made herself busy in the case?
Well, none other than Virginia Bottomley, who was named along with her husband Peador ‘upda‘ Bottomley on the list of Satanists that I published on this site not so long ago.
You can find that list at the following link: chrisspivey.org/the-whos-who-of-satanic-child-abuse/
Paedor Bottomley’s name also appears on the list of those who were regular visitors to the Elm Guest House.
No real surprise then that the Judge found no case to answer.
And where was this Satanic Child Abuse taking place?
Fuck me, I’m glad you asked me that.
You see, all 20 children were residents on the Langley Estate, Middleton in Manchester.
Now, I’m absolutely positive that I have heard of the Langley Estate being mentioned somewhere before, but I can’t for the fucking life of me remember where.
Never the less, I’m sure it will come back to me… Sooner or later.
SATANIC RITUAL ABUSE CASE
In 1990, social workers from the Rochdale area raided five homes at dawn and took 21 children into care. The officials suspected that horrendous criminal acts were being perpetrated by the children’s parents, allegedly members of a Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) “cult”.
- destroyed five families
- made the children wards of the court, and placed them in foster homes, separated from their families of origin
- left almost a dozen parents falsely accused of horrifying sexual/physical abuse
- been based on a myth. Underground, abusing Satanic cults never existed
Cause of (and fallout from) the Fiasco
The root cause of the disaster seems to have been a series of social workers’ conferences given by what the paper called “fundamentalist Christian evangelists” from the United States. The workers were “indoctrinated” with “so-called Satanic Indicators“.
Some then returned to their offices, scanned their case loads and found Satanists under every rock. Fatally flawed interview techniques led to many children making false confessions, based on memories of non-existent ritual abuse which had accidentally and unwittingly been implanted by the interviewers.
The British government commissioned a study by Prof. J.S. Lafontaine.
Her report indicated that: no evidence of Satanic Ritual has been found, that unfounded rumors of SRA had been propagated on the basis of dubious information, and that some Evangelical Christians, psychologists, childcare workers, and health-care professionals were responsible for spreading the myth.
Lost years of ‘satanic panic’ children
In 1990, families on a council estate in north Manchester woke up to every parent’s worst nightmare. With no warning, police and social workers had come to take their children.
