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...

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.

That is why they switched to little boys and anuses instead. Sacrifice their innocence and brown virginity at the same time without all the mess of cleaning up after a dead body afterwards though if true this is probably the real reason why Ratzinger resigned as Pope in the first place.

“I saw Joseph Ratzinger murder a little girl”: Eyewitness to a 1987 ritual sacrifice confirms account of Toos Nijenhuis of Holland Posted on October 28, 2013

A Global Media Advisory from the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) and its Central Directorate, Brussels

“I saw Joseph Ratzinger murder a little girl”:
Eyewitness to a 1987 ritual sacrifice confirms account of Toos Nijenhuis of Holland

New Evidence of Vatican’s guilt prompts Italian politicians to confront Pope Francis as next Common Law court case is announced – The Papacy retaliates with global “black ops” attacks against ITCCS

A Breaking News Summary and Update from ITCCS Central, Brussels

Monday, October 28, 2013

The criminal prosecution of yet another Pope came closer to reality this month as Italian politicians agreed to work with the ITCCS in a common law court action against the papacy for its haboring of a wanted fugitive from justice: deposed Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger.

The agreement came after a new eyewitness confirmed the involvement of Ratzinger in a ritual child sacrifice in Holland in August of 1987.

“I saw Joseph Ratzinger murder a little girl at a French chateau in the fall of 1987? stated the witness, who was a regular participant in the cult ritual torture and killing of children.

“It was ugly and horrible, and it didn’t happen just once. Ratzinger often took part. He and (Dutch Catholic Cardinal) Alfrink and (Bilderberger founder) Prince Bernhard were some of the more prominent men who took part.”

This new witness confirms the account of Toos Nijenhuis, a Dutch woman who went public on May 8 with her eyewitness account of similar crimes involving Ratzinger, Alfrink and Bernhard. (see:

Soon after his historic resignation from office last February 11, Joseph Ratzinger was convicted of Crimes against Humanity on February 25, 2013 by the Brussels-based International Common Law Court of Justice, and a global citizens arrest warrant was issued against him. Since then, he has evaded arrest within Vatican City under a decree of the present Pope Francis.

The surfacing of this new evidence of Vatican complicity in child murder has prompted a group of Italian politicians to agree to work with the ITCCS in confronting the papacy with a common law court case against the present Pope Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, for his sheltering of Ratzinger and his own complicity in war crimes. The politicians had been in closed negotiations with ITCCS representatives since September 22.

We are looking at revising if not abolishing our country’s Lateran Treaty with the Vatican, whose actions in harboring child rapists certainly meet the definition of a Transnational Criminal Organization under international law” stated a spokesman for one of the politicians.

Paid operatives sabotaged ITCCS work in Holland and Ireland during that week, and on October 14, the main ITCCS website was destroyed by the same saboteurs.

Political sources in Rome have revealed that these attacks were paid for and coordinated through the Office of the Vatican espionage agency known as the “Holy Alliance” or The Entity, and its affiliated “dirty ops” bureau, the Sodalitium Pianum, established in Rome in 1913. They also involved the agents of the Papal Nuncio to Holland, Archbishop Andre Dupuy, who made direct contact with two of the saboteurs, “Mel and Richard Ve”, and with the Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, who likewise paid bribes to disrupt ITCCS work in Ireland.

“Obviously the Vatican is panicking. This is a good sign” commented ITCCS Field Secretary Kevin Annett today from New York City.

While at Notre Dame…

Notre Dame tells young Catholics to “cease and desist” promoting traditional marriage on campus

Posted by Leslie Eastman   May 7, 2014  

…Then the university called the police on the students.
And, yet Notre Dame still considers itself a Catholic university.

TFP Student Action reported:

Sound Bend, Indiana: April 29, 2014 — Young volunteers with Tradition Family Property Student Action were ordered to “cease and desist” promoting traditional marriage at the University of Notre Dame on Friday, April 25.

“Permission to have a table had been granted through an officially recognized on-campus student group,” said TFP Student Action director John Ritchie. “But that permission was revoked for some odd reason. Police officers arrived soon after we started giving out pro-family literature and cut the event short, informing us that we were no longer welcome to talk to students about the importance of preserving the sanctity of marriage between 1 man and 1 woman, which fully agrees with 2,000 years of Catholic teaching,” Ritchie explained.

The TFP handout, 10 Reasons Why Same-Sex “Marriage” is Harmful and Must Be Opposed, was being warmly received by students and faculty members alike. However, several pro-homosexual students ripped up the flier, shouted obscenities, and expressed their desire to deprive the pro-true marriage volunteers of their right to free speech.

"However, several pro-homosexual students ripped up the flier, shouted obscenities, and expressed their desire to deprive the pro-true marriage volunteers of their right to free speech."

Translation, someone told them to shut the fuck up (also there was a spontaneous rally from actual students, but that seemed mostly peaceful in the vids and images).

"Permission to have a table had been granted through an officially recognized on-campus student group,"

Translation, they got the table by being deceptive.

Ignore the fact that you agree with the message for a moment, you should be smart enough to recognize weasel words ... these guys are clearly douches.

PS. they're also creationists (hint : the modern catholic church is a little more enlightened than that). They probably view catholics as more evil than gays, they really don't belong on a catholic campus.

Apparently the real problem here is that this was not an officially sanctioned black mass.  On top of that, it was mere Extension students attempting to hog all the limedark from this event.  Get a real student group such as "Room 13", "Queer Students and Allies (QSA)", "Interfaith Council", "Harvard College BAGELS: a Queer/Jewish Group", "Gay, Lesbian, Or, Whatever (GLOW)"....

Surely some among those or related groups would love the publicity.

And carefully choose the country to display your perversions, such as the perversion-friendly US whore-of-Babylon regime.

Else, like in Poland, the church may bring a counter-attack as it did on the EU’s imposed gender ideology.

“By exposing the sexual subversion that the EU requires as the necessary preliminary step to IMF financial looting…the nationalists understood this in an intuitive fashion when they burned down the rainbow arches erected in Warsaw’s public squares (in 2013) by the homosexuals and their Jewish backers.”

However, writes Emmanuel Ratisbonne in The End of the Rainbow in Poland,”Once gay marriage was defeated, the Poles were smart enough to know that the Jews, who failed to get gay marriage by a direct confrontation, would use other techniques. As 2013 progressed, (my Polish friend) Karol correctly predicted that the next move would be through the sex education movement.”

Spouse: Charles E. Rosenberg (m. 1980), Stephen E. Faust (m. 1968–1976)

Faust is married to Charles E. Rosenberg, a historian of medicine at Harvard. She was previously married to Stephen Faust.[25] They have a daughter, Jessica Rosenberg, who is a Harvard graduate and works for the New Yorker. Faust also has a step daughter, Leah Rosenberg.[26]

Her first cousin is the movie and television actor Jack Gilpin.[25]

One of Faust's first initiatives was significantly increasing financial aid offered to students at Harvard College. On December 10, 2007, Faust announced a transformative new policy for middle-class and upper-middle-class students, which limited parental contributions to 10 percent for families making between $100,000 and $180,000 annually, and replaced loans with grants. In announcing the policy, Faust said, “Education is the engine that makes American democracy work.... And it has to work and that means people have to have access.”[14] The new policy expanded on earlier programs that eliminated contributions for families earning less than $60,000 a year and greatly reduced costs for families earning less than $100,000. Similar policies were subsequently adopted by Stanford University, Yale University, and many other private U.S. universities and college…

In December 2010, Faust and President John L. Hennessy of Stanford University co-wrote an editorial in support of passage of the DREAM Act. The legislation was not passed by the 111th United States Congress.[24]

She is the author of six books, including Mothers of Invention: Women of the Slaveholding South in the American Civil War (1996) (i.e., she is a feminist)…

Faust is a descendant of the Puritan divine Rev. Jonathan Edwards, the third president of Princeton.[8]

She graduated from Concord Academy, Concord, Massachusetts, in 1964. Many of her male relatives, including her father and two of her brothers, went to Princeton University. However, Princeton did not accept female students in the 1960s, so Faust went to Bryn Mawr College instead.[9] She earned her BA from Bryn Mawr College in 1968. She graduated magna cum laude with honors in history. She received her MA in 1971 and her Ph.D. in American Civilization with thesis, titled A Sacred Circle: The Social Role of the Intellectual in the Old South, 1840-1860, at the University of Pennsylvania in 1975.[10] In the same year, she joined the Penn faculty as assistant professor of American civilization. Based on her research and teaching, she rose to Walter Annenberg Professor of History. A specialist in the history of the South in the antebellum period and Civil War, Faust developed new perspectives in intellectual history of the antebellum South and in the changing roles of women during the Civil War.


perhaps, as the bolded text hints,  her studies afforded her a perspective of history that women before her actually experienced, and might not have been taught in the exclusive lectures of her men-folks.  while I have zero opinion about her place in the world she occupies, branding her with the "feminist" Scarlet Letter is so knee-jerk.

the other "selected works" she authored might be more to your liking?

If Faust really opposed the Satanic Black Mass, why is it then that “The university had decided not to block the event”? Hmmmm?

Surely Faust had the authroity to keep the Harvard group from having it.

Founding Of Harvard College, America, 1642, Vol.2, Pg.155-157

Rules, and precepts that are observed in the college.


1. When any scholar is able to understand Tully, or such like classical Latin author extempore, and make and speak true Latin in verse and prose, And decline perfectly the paradigms of nouns and verbs in the Greek tongue: Let him then and not before be capable of admission into the college.


2. Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is, to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, John 17:3, and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.


And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let every one seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him Prov. 2, 3.


3. Every one shall so exercise himself in reading the Scriptures twice a day, that he shall be ready to give such an account of his proficiency therein, both in theoretical observations of the language, and logic, and in practical and spiritual truths, as his tutor shall require, according to his ability; seeing the entrance of the word giveth light, it giveth understanding to the simple, Psalm. 119. 130.


4. That they eschewing all profanation of God's name, attributes, word, ordinance, and times of worship, do study with good conscience, carefully to retain God, and the love of his truth in their minds else let them know, that (notwithstanding their learning) God may give them up to strong delusions, and in the end to a reprobate mind, 2 Thes. 2. 11, 12. Rom. 1. 28.


5. That they studiously redeem the time; observe the general hours appointed for all the students, and the special hours for their own classes: and then diligently attend the lectures without any disturbance by word or gesture. And if in any thing they doubt, they shall inquire as of their fellows, so, (in case of non satisfaction) modestly of their tutors.


6. None shall under any pretense whatsoever, frequent the company and society of such men as lead an unfit, and desolate life. Nor shall any without his tutor's leave, or (in his absence) the call of parents or guardians, go abroad to other towns.


7. Every scholar shall be present in his tutor's chamber at the seventh hour in the morning, immediately after the sound of the bell, at his opening the Scripture and prayer, so also at the fifth hour at night, and then give account of his own private reading, as aforesaid in particular the third, and constantly attend lectures in the hall at the hours appointed. But if any (without necessary impediment) shall absent himself from prayer or lectures, he shall be liable to admonition, if he offend above once a week.


8. If any scholar shall be found to transgress any of the laws of God, or the school, after twice admonition, he shall be liable, if not adultus, to correction, if adultus, his name shall be given up to the overseers of the college, that he may be admonished at the public monthly act. . . .

OK <---Mainline Protestants---Catholics---Southern Baptists---Evangelicals---

---Mormons---Muslims---Atheists---Biblical Satanists---Church of the FSM ---> NOT ACCEPTABLE

The myth of religious tolerance is persistent but America -- meaning New England as a practical matter -- had nothing to do with utopian toleration of every Thom, Dick and Harry to come it.

It was founded explcitly by certain Christian sects -- my ancestors -- for their use.

I mean really!  Why on earth would anyone peril an ocean, a wilderness, Indians, deprivation, etc etc on Religious grounds then throw open the door for Mohammedans, Jews, Animists, whatever to come and wreck everything they just built?

It defies common sense and insults the intelligence to believe as much and yet, here we are.

Butthen, my ancestors are the ones who actually got it all going back in 1620 and I've studied their records -- and family stories -- pretty intently so who am I to argue with the offspring of people who came here landing at Ellis Island on a bespoke ocean liner or at JFK on a wide bodied 747?

Mayflower would hardly qualify as a dinghy, same with the rest of the vessels of the Puritan Migration.

where does Miley Cyrus fit in this chart?

I know where to place Michael jackson; somewhere between "thrilling" evangelical and "bad" satanical; all in super groovy motion.

But Miley is both angel and devil. You just have to look at her face and her pelvis in the same instance. 

Do satan's minions also have white wings fluttering and hot spasms of desire all at once?

Like that man-woman now top Euro singer. Putin had a fit. 

I think I'll stick to rational metaphysics and walk alone outside the spectrum of "Bible and gun belt". 

And don't sing to me : "you'll never walk alone"; as they lost to City.

There would probably have been more of a sembance of genuine religion at that simulated black mass than there is at any given presumptively valid Novus Ordo Missae. It may have acquainted some of the students with proper liturgical usage, Latin incantations, and even (ironically) respect for the Holy Eucharist -- three things you will not find in the post-Vatican II Conciliar sect.

Not that I advocate Satanic worship -- far from it (I am a Traditional Roman Catholic, by the way). But it strikes me as surpassingly curious that the Archdiocese was reputedly "furious" about the black mass. I didn't think the post-Vatican II Church got furious about anything anymore. If you want to be an abortion loving, gay rights championing, twice married and divorced and now living with your mistress politician, you can present yourself for Communion and draw nary a peep from your local bishop. But simply simulating a black mass with a non-consecrated host in a pub is beyond the pale. I attribute this disparity to the Conciliar Church's lack of real belief in the supernatural. It's not that they don't want people worshipping Satan, it's that they just don't want people worshipping, period. Sacerdotalism, sacramental theology, the offering up of a real victim on a real altar -- all this is passe in the Vatican II Church. Modern Catholicism is eminently ecumenical as long as your true object of worship is mankind and social justice, but advert to a spiritual reality and you are persona non grata. The bishops are just as diligent in their attempts to keep the Traditional Latin Mass out of their dioceses, and they respond with the same tactics.

"As the numbers of those who follow Satan grows, they will go to great lengths to publicly declare their worship of the devil and anyone who believes this to be harmless would be wise to stop now. They must beg Me, Jesus Christ, to help them to overcome the evil power, which will be exerted in the world because of the power which Satan will wield in these times."

Since a good many, if not most of the ruling elites are Luciferians (really) worshipping the dark forces, initially I was surprised  - but they do not have total control, so deception remains the rule  -they will 'come out" when the time is ripe   -which hopefully will be never. Though remember-Jesus said "my Kingdom is not of this World" -the Luciferians may well continue to reign and inflict their 'Hell on Earth"   -here on earth.  It's apparent to me , as it should be to all, that evil and the dark forces are running amok on this Planet, and have been for some time.

Keeryst, what good is a black mass if its approved? Thats the whole point. So this is BS, probably Warren made them call it off because she couldn't make it on account she hasn't got enough brownie points to get away from the AIPAC-DC marathon black mass, baby roast & old folk's orgy.

You will not stop the rise of that fell beast and Lord,  Azathoth!

Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes

Back in the mid-1970s one of my brothers entered the seminary to train for the priesthood. As he tells it, the place was one big frenzied homosexual orgy. He and another guy complained to the boss and same day they were told to pack their bags and get out.  

Sorry folks, Catholic church got taken over by satanists a very long time ago.

And as for black masses, (a mockery or parody of a real mass or sacrament) they are very common in the popular media and long have been:

The climax of The Graduate is a Jew desecrating a Christian marriage ceremony.

The violence and predations of The Godfather story are bracketed with first a "marriage" that serves as the locus of the evil plots of the pater familias ("family" is evil too) and the closing bracket of the story turns the baptism of a new born into a hypocritical satanic ritual, a blood sacrifice in which the baptism is consecrated withg the blood of gangsters.

Gangs of New York explicitly begins with a black mass and constantly places the crcifix and other christain symbols in contexts of horror and hypocrisy.

I could easily go on with 100s of examples. We see so many bloody shoot-outs in churches (an early example was the Dirty Harry movie with the gun-toting priest - the movie with the cagney and lacey woman),  murderous and perverted priests, and, in The Town, a brutal bank robbery where the perpetrators are nuns (actually men wearing nun-masks as disguises.

The crucial point to remember about these images and juxtapositions is that we watch movies with our non-language-using reptilian and limbic brains (Triune brain theory), not with our critical neo-cortex. So for our movie/tv watching minds, these associations of christianity with hypocritical horrors are a "truth". For our subconscious, these __were__ nuns with machine guns.

Is this all a deliberate plot? I don't know, but I am still waiting to see a movie with a shoot-out in a synagogue. Perhaps when  hell freezes over.
