Posted on 08/07/2014 5:07:24 AM PDT by NYer
The head of the Oklahoma City satanic church that is planning a black mass in a public venue next month says the Eucharistic Host he plans to use in the ritual was mailed to him by a friend.
" I'm sick of hearing about this 'Consecrated Host,'" Adam Daniels, of the organization, the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, wrote in an emailed response to questions from Aleteia. "As my understudy has told other Catholic Inquisitors, the Eucharist was mailed to us by [a] friend. That is all I'm going to say about how it was attained [sic]. My question is, why is a piece of bread that some man said some words over so sacred?"
Daniels, who uses the title Dasturthe term for Zoroastrian high priestsaid in a subsequent email today that "As far as I know, the host mailed to me is consecrated."
He confirmed that the black mass that is generating controversy in Oklahoma City and beyond, will go forward as planned on Sept. 21.
"The abridged Black Mass (from the Satanic Rituals by [Anton] LaVey) will take place," he said. "Then The Choke [a local band] will perform. After that, Matthew Garman will have a Satanic (Ahrimanic) Exorcism done [which purports to remove the Holy Spirit from him]. Kelsey [Daniels] and I will be presiding over this rite. Before each ritual I will lecture on the purpose and point of each ritual as it pertains to the Ahrimanic [Satanic] Faith."
He added: "I'm renting a small space one time a year to educate the public about my religion. This is protected by my First Amendment Right as a citizen of the United States, not a brainwashed sheep of the Catholic Empire."
The event is to take place in a 92-seat theatre in the civic center. Daniels said no city official has asked him to reconsider the event, in light of protests by local Catholics, led by Archbishop Paul S. Coakley of Oklahoma City. "Their [sic] are some who are quite tickled at all of this."
I invite all Catholics to pray daily for divine protection through the intercession of this heavenly patron who once defeated Lucifer in his rebellion against the Almighty and who stands ready to assist us in this hour of need, he wrote.
Archbishop Coakley also asked each parish to conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Benediction at least once between the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Aug 15, and Sept. 21, the date of the planned black mass. On that day, he plans to conduct a holy hour and outdoor Eucharistic procession and benediction at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Oklahoma City at 3pm, four hours prior to the performance.
Among parishes participating is Christ the King in Oklahoma City. A spokeswoman, Kelly Fanning, described the mood in the archdiocese: "As you might expect, the mood among the Catholics with whom Ive had direct communication about the matter is mixed, ranging from those who worry that we may be 'over-reacting' and inadvertently giving the black mass more attention than it might otherwise receive to those who feel strongly that this challenge to decency and all that is good and right must not stand without every effort of community advocacy, political action and, most importantly and perhaps most effectively, prayer."
The archbishop also asked Catholics in the archdiocese to contact Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett to express "outrage over this offensive and blasphemous sacrilege and this misuse of a tax-supported public space."
The mayors office has heard from many people since the archbishop first sent out a press release in early July, said a city spokeswoman. There has been an increase in these contacts since the archbishops new letter to Catholics was published Monday, she said.
"We can say that weve had calls from several states, and know that several from Oklahoma have spoken up," said the spokeswoman, Jennifer Lindsey-McClintock. "Overall the feedback has been that of anger and disappointment."
Archbishop Coakley first spoke out against the plans for the black mass in early July, when it was learned that the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu planned to stage the ritual. That news followed a similar controversy in the spring, when a New York Satanic group tried to present the rite at Harvard University. A large outpouring of Catholic prayer and protest led to the cancellation of that event.
Archbishop Coakley's letter followed a similar appeal from Bishop Edward J. Slattery of Tulsa, Okla., who asked Catholics in his diocese over the weekend to fast and pray from Aug. 6-15 so that the black mass may be cancelled.
Jim Brown, general manager of the Civic Center, has said that as a public facility, the center could not turn down a group that wanted to rent space there, as long as the group was law-abiding. Archbishop Coakley wasn't buying that argument.
It is hard to imagine the Civic Center turning a blind eye and allowing a group to use its facilities to burn a copy of the Koran, or to conduct an overtly anti-Semitic performance, he said in an earlier statement.
How far this nation has slid, when a black mass is performed, unashamedly, in public. With the support of the public.
He can do as he likes but in the end he is doing nothing but desecrating mere bread and wine.
Fun and games, desecrating holy things for the publicity.
God gets the last laugh on Judgment Day.
It would be really cool if the host turned to actual flesh. That would freak them out!
Actually, he is not desecrating anything.
Actually, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
It seems to me that this is the applicable principle. The first amendment does not make exceptions for religions that the majority finds offensive. I am in no way supporting Satanism, but it does seem that the founding principles of America, which include free expression of religion, argue in favor of allowing a public black mass to occur (obviously assuming that it is conducted lawfully; no animal sacrifices, etc.).
I am an usher in my church. Maintaining security on consecrated hosts is at the top of our To Do List.
Daniels actually agrees with you:
“My question is, why is a piece of bread that some man said some words over so sacred?”
Actually, because nothing can be desecrated?
Yet another reason to end the abomination known as giving Holy Communion in the hand
Whether people agree or not, this country WAS founded as a God honoring and God fearing country.
Our country has slidden so far, that at one time a Satanist would have been ashamed to admit it privately, let alone publicly.
Where is the public outcry?
Not just from the Catholic church. But every church in the area.
60 years ago, even non religious people would have been outraged and decrying this.
Say what you want about the First Amendment, but I doubt that James Madison or any of the signers of The Constitution, would have allowed this in their day.
1 Cor 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
The holiness of the Host is not affected by our holiness. We are the ones who must prepare ourselves to receive our Lord Who is present regardless of our faith.
The opposite is true, after the consecration it is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, whether you accept it or not.
Desecrating it will bring him to a place he really doesn't want to go.
A satanist could get ahold of It without stealing It from the tabernacle.
And that is why people should not take Communion in the hand. It is too easy for a satanist to pocket.
a piece of bread that some man said some words over
Since the poster's argument is so devoid of substance I'm surprised they didn't ask about the farmer who planted the wheat. The point is God Himself makes the critical step, but it helps the poster's "point" to actively ignore that.
The city government is providing a forum for the abuse and mockery of two different communities of citizens for the benefit of a third.
He CHOSE to belong to Satan.
He doesn't seem to have anyone to pray for him. How far down he has sunk!
