Parents and Sunday school teachers were accused of participating in an organized sex abuse ring called The Circle, where they passed children around at sex parties and church events. Still, not everyone believed it: After a pastor criticized the investigation, he was accused of running a sex abuse ring out of his church.
Media Fueled the Satanic Ritual Abuse Craze. Social Media Will Fuel the Next False Panic.
In all, 18 people went to prison. Children were taken from their families and placed into foster care. Later, after law students and faculty at the University of Washington Innocence Project Northwest took up the case, all the verdicts were overturned or the charges reduced. All the accused were eventually cleared of charges except for Ingram, who quickly admitted his guilt when questioned by law enforcement. Ingram, who later recanted his confession, spent 10 years in prison. In the years after the ritual abuse scare, the concept of recovered memories was widely exposed as false.
In , the Department of Justice concluded that widespread ritualistic satanic sex abuse cults were a myth, and accusations largely faded away by the mid-'90s.
Now, evidence suggests that people tend to remember traumatic, life-changing events, and we know that the human mind is highly susceptible to suggestion and revision, especially when prompted by therapists and other people perceived as authorities.
In , Dr.
Richard J. McNally, then the Director of Clinical Training in the Department of Psychology at Harvard and an expert in memory, wrote a letter to the Supreme Court, which was hearing a case that stemmed from recovered memories. Today, some therapists and counselors still specialize in recovered memories.
These prepared the way for popular acceptance of a previously exotic diagnosis of MPD and the often florid traumatic memories that had supposedly been repressed but resurfaced in therapy. Satanic rituals were a feature of such cases.
The second broad avenue through the media was daytime talk shows, which picked up on the sensational nature of such stories, amplified them, and spread the meme.
At the time, it was the high-rated documentary to air on nightly TV. Print media got in on it as well, and not just the National Enquirer. In , People magazine published a cover story about Roseanne Barr, who said that she recovered memories of her mother abusing her from the time she was an infant.

Empowering organized religious groups who believed that evil occultists were really trying to rape and murder the innocent, while some psychologists and therapists also backed those claims, it was only a matter of time before the law stepped in and innocent people were targeted in a modern day witch hunt. The idea of repressed memories of Satanic abuse fueled the moral panic, and in , a book that many consider a major contributor to the hysteria was published.
Michelle Remembers describes the therapy sessions that a Canadian psychiatrist named Lawrence Pazder conducted on a patient. The book is the first written on Satanic ritual abuse, which his patient, Michelle, "remembered" through lengthy hypnosis sessions.
It's one of the first books popularizing the idea of repressed memories of victims of Satanic abuses, and largely influenced the ensuing panic.
Michelle Remembers was hugely profitable for both Pazder, who co-authored the book, and Michelle Smith, but the stories of abuse seem to have been largely or entirely false, with many contradictions and factual errors cropping up. Michelle's recovered memories were horrific, involving rituals she was forced to take part in at the age of five.
According to Michelle, these included being locked in a cage, being sexually abused and tortured, and being covered in the blood and body parts of victims who were murdered as part of the rituals conducted by a satanic cult. The book sold well, and was heavily promoted by the media, including talk show hosts like Oprah Winfrey, and propelled the idea of widespread Satanic ritual abuse into the mainstream.

Michelle Remembers also created a template that many other subsequent cases would use, and was instrumental in shaping how law enforcement agencies responded to allegations of occult crimes. The book's influence was huge, and it seemed to withstand criticism of its accuracy until it was thoroughly debunked many years later, sadly after much damage was already done. Photo by Chris Lane In , allegations of monstrous abuse at a family-run child-care center in California were made.
So these allegations of ritual abuse in day-care centers came from the combination of legitimate awareness of a previously hidden problem, and completely unfounded hysteria.
Nevertheless, until the late s and early s, CSA was largely a hidden phenomenon. At the time the day-care cases arose, society was just beginning to acknowledge and come to terms with sexual abuse of children.
Thus, the day care cases did not come to the surface all by themselves. Rather, the day care cases were part of the broader societal awakening to CSA. The day care cases captured our attention for several reasons.
First, the children were very young and vulnerable.
Second, some of the allegations were bizarre and fantastic. Third, some of the alleged offenses were unspeakably horrible. Fourth, with so many American children in day care, many parents could relate to these cases. Finally, the interviewing in some of the large day care cases was clearly defective.
Satanic Rituals: Companion to The Satanic Bible
Advertisement A lot of the interest in patients claiming to have recovered buried memories of Satanic ritual abuse began with a book entitled Michelle Remembers, written by psychiatrist Lawrence Pazer and his patient and later, wife Michelle Smith, says Pamela Freyd, PhD, the executive director of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation , a nonprofit met with some varying opinions in the scientific community that mostly works with parents who have been accused of childhood abuse by their now-adult children.From the Salem witch trials to the Red Scare, moral panics, as they are frequently called, pop up.
Fourth, with so many American children in day care, many parents could relate to these cases.
The phenomenon became known as "satanic ritual abuse," and while the whole episode may seem ludicrous from the vantage of history, with the rise of the internet and social media, conditions are ripe for something like it to happen again. McNally, then the Director of Clinical Training in the Department of Psychology at Harvard and an expert in memory, wrote a letter to the Supreme Court, which was hearing a case that stemmed from recovered memories.
But wait! After publication, Padzer became famous. We still live with the legacy of this era of paranoia, which prefigured not only the modern totalitarian state but also the now preeminent contest between society's haves and have nots.
