About the Author

David Benoit was born in 1955, and grew up in Louisiana. He accepted Christ as Saviour in 1971 after a rebellious teenage life had led him to reform school. In 1973 he enrolled in Liberty University, graduating in 1978. In 1984 David was led of the Lord to establish Glory Ministries. The emphasis of Glory Ministries is exposing the truth about the damaging effects of rock music on society, the only solution being regeneration by Jesus Christ. Mr. Benoit's vast knowledge of the occult and New Age has now led him into a full-time ministry of exposing the subtleties of Satan's devices.

This book is an embarassment to anyone who is a true follower of Christ, who preached love and acceptance, NOT hatred and ignorance.
The "research" is nonexistant; it all seems to be based on one man's paranoid fantasies- and he will twist anything to fit his delusional view of the world.
One reviewer said that because the author based it all on "The Bible" that it's true. Poppycock. At best, he based it on HIS interpretation of a rephrasing of a translation of a translation.
In SOME translations of the Old Testament there's a verse saying "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live". Why? Because James I of England was obsessed with the idea of witches, and told the translators working for him to use that word, instead of the ACTUAL translation, which is "poisoner". Rather a change in meaning, there- and far from the only one that's been made.
The ignorance and intolerance shown in this "book" is disgusting. Anyone who believes _anything_ in this book should take a very close look at themselves, and wonder at their own gullibility.

I met this author and made the same conclusions he did long before that. Some parents did not pay enough attention to the "Sympathy for the Devil" generation of rock music and that's why their kids got so messed up, including myself. "God is not the author of confusion", but Satan sure is, and that's why you get reactions like self-identified witches reacting here saying witches don't believe in Satan, but if Hollywood (CA) produced their output it would be better. You get gender confusion, confusion about climate, confusion about "aliens". Why do UFO magazines carry so many "spiritual" messages from aliens, and why do those "messages" always tend to preach a herd mentality and follow the mental edicts of the Satanic elites?

..As denounced by Satanists who have repented and come to Christ, by the way...

Most Wiccans and witches are the grunts on the ground and do not know what led them there or what influenced them. These reviewers that claim to be witches (I believe them) truly believe what they say here, and they are just as deceived as the overwhelming majority of Christians on this subject.

I have met David Benoit, and he is spot on about most of rock music, a conclusion I came to long before I met him. I was an avid, acid rock almost-junkie, and from listening for revolutionary message inserts in my favorite rock band, I actually woke up to the mental subterfuges therein, with most of the output of the day. "Sympathy for the Devil"?

I ordered this book from Amazon.com because I was stunned by the title, and had to see what exactly this conspiracy is that I'm apparantly involved in. (Boy, did that mess up my recommendations page for a while!) I'm a witch and I had no idea that I was actively recruiting children.
The scholarship in this book is wretched: if this is supposed to be a de-bunking of witchcraft, why are there no Wiccan or pagan authors in the sources? Did Mr. Benoit read any books by witches? Most of his source material is by folks who agree with his premise, such as Bob Larson's Encyclopedia of Cults, which lists, among other things, Islam, Hinduism, and Yoga as cults!
One of his other sources is a book called "Child Spirit": an out of print book by an unheard-of researcher from a minor publisher.
Mr. Benoit, why didn't you read Margot Adler and debunk her premises piece by piece? How about Starhawk, or Robert Graves: are you afraid to read lucid, thoughtful discourse on the subject of Polytheism? Did you think that maybe if you checked with an actual book on Eastern philosophy, you might get an accurate definition of the Yin/Yang principle?
Parents: there is no great Pagan conspiracy. We don't want your children, and quite a few of us despise Disney just like you do.
New Age thinking is not the same as Witchcraft, which is not the same as Eastern Philosophy, and none of it has anything to do with a Christian boogeyman with a red tail and horns.

One last note: we practicers of Witchcraft are a fairly thoughtful, intellectual lot, and would never publish such a biased, poorly researched book about Christianity. We are smarter and less superstitious than Mr. Benoit.
Blessed Be, Mr. Benoit: you are as the Goddess intends you to be.

Mr. Benoit is presented as having �vast knowledge of the occult and New Age� I am wondering just how he acquired such knowledge. I�m also wondering why, is if he is such an expert, is he so misinformed?
Lets start with a little house cleaning: First Wiccans and NeoPagans do not recruit new members much less working to recruit children, door to door enrollment is largely a Christina phenomena. Wiccans and NeoPagans are not Satan worshipers. Satanists are not in control of the media (if they were I�m sure there would finally be something good on television). I find it difficult to believe that Mr. Benoit does not know these things yet he chooses to ignore them in the writing of this book. I would think that this would violate the basic Christian prohibition against baring false witness.
Mr. Benoit had filled this book with his own paranoid delusions and fears. Some reviewers of his other books feel his writings are humerous, a joke. Writing like this stops being funny when the author is so obviously believes his own hate inspired fear based nonsense.
Finally I have to question the credibility and the sanity of anyone who uses the verbal meanderings of a three year old as proof of demonic possession.
