Check out Post#27, have you heard this angle on any local talk shoes in the Southern Cal region? May be a connection, interesting coincidence at the least, agreed?
It is an interesting coincidence but it's the first I've heard of it and I try to catch anything of this story from local news, paper, etc.
However, I did think the other day that I have never heard either Brenda or Damon mention prayer or God. It may be that I've simply missed it, but nonetheless haven't heard anything resembling faith.
I thought it strange when the cameras caught Damon returning from his desert search yesterday (can't help but think of OJ looking for the REAL killer) that he was very flippant and said something like, "Nope....nothing. We didn't find anything." Then he took a few steps and said, "I wish this whole thing was just over with."
I know it is easy to read all sorts of things into every word and movement, but it seems more than an odd statement and attitude of a "grieving" and "concerned" father.
Even if the van Dams are not found to be responsible, their behavior will always be suspect, IMHO.
Re: the involvement of Mark Klaas, father of Polly Klaas, the girl who was kidnapped from her bedroom back in 1993 and later murdered, it is interesting (and unsettling) to note that his father Joe Klaas once wrote the introduction to a book on satanic ritual abuse:
... Joe Klaas, famous in the 12 step movement, wrote the introduction to that book ( Breaking the Circle of Satanic Ritual Abuse by Daniel Ryder), and initially blamed the kidnap of Polly on retaliation against him for having written that introduction. Source: San Francisco Chronicle November 1993.]
An article by Daniel Ryder on the subject of satanic ritual abuse can be found at www.du.edu/~craschke/text2.edu.
Of course, we all know that there are no such things as satanic cults (scroll down) and that satanists might dress funny, listen to bad music, and maybe in extreme cases ritually sacrifice small animals, but they never actually kill people
