WTF Headline Of The Day: Harvard Group Cancels "Satanic Black Mass"

Tyler Durden's picture

What is this country coming to? (when your standard every day Satan worshipper is repressed from his (or her) 'black mass' by protesting students)...



As Bloomberg reports,

Harvard University extension school students planning a “satanic black mass” canceled the event after an outcry by administration, students, faculty and religious leaders.


The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club had decided to move the event off campus last night after widespread objections, and no other location was willing to host it, according to an e-mailed statement from the group.


“Given that no other location has been willing to intercede, we will no longer be sponsoring this black mass,” the group said.




The university had decided not to block the event, even though President Drew Faust said she opposed it.




About 60,000 people, many of them Harvard students, faculty and alumni, signed online petitions protesting the black mass and urging Harvard to stop it, said Aurora Griffin, a senior at the college.




“Vigorous and open discussion and debate are essential to the pursuit of knowledge, and we must uphold these values even in the face of controversy,” Faust said yesterday in a statement. “Freedom of expression, as Justice Holmes famously said long ago, protects not only free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.”




“What do we really think that religious freedom and free speech demands of us?” Robichaud said. “Does religious tolerance demand only tolerance of rituals that aren’t offensive?”




If this had been a re-enactment of a Nazi rally or a lynching, the university would have stepped in quickly and stopped it,” he said in a telephone interview. “I’d be concerned that the university is saying, we just allow student groups to do what they want.”

Nothing... we have nothing...

Gotta love images of text headlines.

Because the font is important, you know.

So What's picture

When Rothschild goes to hell, I wouldn't be surprised to see Satan using new currency.
Wonder if Rothschild or Satan is more evil.

Funny, the Rotschilds really were in my town last night, celebrating Gerhard Schroeder's birthday.  Somebody even tried to bomb the event . Any ZHers want to take credit?

Notably, we also had the Russian ambassador visiting.  I waited, I waited, and I waited.  Tick tock.

But no bomb.

1. Organized religion is what keeps the poor from killing the rich.  It also keeps shamans (ministers, priests, rabbis, etc) well fed and well dressed for a lifetime.  Rulers and shamans have known this for millennia.  Hence the symbiotic relationship between the secular and clerical rulers.

2. If you want to start a new Organized Religion, one of the best ways is to leverage, change and re-brand an existing one.  Since there's a market for everything (given human nature), even the mumbo-jumbo of "Satanism" will have its market share.

3. Given how reviled this belief system is by the masses/sheep, it lends itself perfectly for a small elite or secular rulers/oligarchs, who simply use it as a gate-keeping mechanism.  Clever, actually.  Devilishly clever, in fact.  Lucky for you, you got Kirk to help remove the smoke and BS around this non-issue.

do i have to ask if i can say "fuck" over the television?

No kidding Katy Perry and Nikki Minaj could have provided entertainment.


I guess theunwashed masses are not ready to allow overt satanism, but rather watch it as entertainment or leave the theistic satanism to their leaders and oligarchs.


I guess an all male bum darts tournament, taking a dump on a crucifix or makeovers for drag queens is all trendy but this stuff is still taboo.. GIve it a year.

People who pray to Satan are twice as stupid as those who pray to Bible God.

So What's picture

You got balls calling Rothschild and their Jewish underlings, gentile enablers "stupid".

No offense but, Harvard University extension school students are not really Harvard University students.

So... you're saying Harvard's regularly scheduled Satanic Black Mass is unaffected?

Like Bill Clinton's extension of his body just above hius nuts is really not part of him so when he said that he didn't have sex with that woman, he wasn't kidding.

What the fuck's he mean they aren't Harvard students?
The enroll and pay at Harvard?
Jesus H Fucking Chreeeeist!

May the God in which nobody believes strike dumb shit commenters down that they may rot in hell forever....
Typical Liberal But It's Different, Not Me, Mine is OK...

They aren't Hahhhhvahhhd students, my ass.

Sounds like syllogistic logic taught in Common Core

I'm guessing it's an addition to categorize, fleece and fuck the wannabes.

After all, someone has to be tomorrow's Useful Idiot, and that shit's far too important to be left to chance.
