Sect Expert Discusses Pedophilia and Violence in Satanic Cults
Cult expert Brigitte Hahn: "We need a much greater awareness of the issue." By Andreas Otto (KNA)
Münster (kath.net / KNA) The Münster sect expert Brigitte Hahn warns of the danger by Satanists. In their ceremonies they would expose children to extreme sexual and other violence, says the head of the "Working Group Ritual Violence” of the dioceses Essen, Münster and Osnabrück on Monday in an interview with the Catholic News Agency (KNA) in Munster. She called for a much greater awareness of the issue.
KNA: Ms. Hahn, you have a few days before a major conference on organized satanic cults. Because of strong demand many experts could not attend. How widespread is the problem?
Hahn: There are no solid figures, but substantial evidence. In 2005 there were less than 1,000 psychotherapists covered by health insurance in Münster and Dortmund were questioned. 120 have reported clients who have had experiences with Satanic rituals. Polls in Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland gave similar responses. My findings are based on numerous exit questionnaires.
