Why Satanists are trying to sidestep abortion laws

SatanistsA former satanic leader says the cult needs to be taken seriously, especially for the sake of preborn babies.

Zachary King, who grew up in a Baptist home, began practicing magic at age ten. He joined a satanic coven at age 13, and from his teen years to adulthood he worked his way up to "high wizard" in the coven, actively pushing ritualistic abortions and breaking up churches.

King says it is folly to think child sacrifice is not practiced in Satanism; it is done now by impregnating a woman and then aborting her child.

"If you killed somebody that was already born, that is worth quite a few points in the satanic scale," he divulges. "But if you could kill something not born yet, then you've gone up the highest, because you've killed the most innocent thing you can. So it actually gives you more power in Satan's eyes if you kill an unborn baby than if you kill a born one."

As a high wizard, King admits to performing 146 rituals for abortions -- sometimes outside the abortion clinic, sometimes in the room where the baby was to be aborted. But after an awakening in 2008, he left the coven and converted to Catholicism.

"I feared for my life for probably like the first two or three years after leaving," he shares. "I lived off the grid for a while. I have a college degree, and I took jobs as like a dishwasher, getting paid cash under the table so my Social Security number wouldn't be out there and no one would know where I was. For other people that leave, they die."

While King, who now heads the All Saints Ministry, says people need to understand Satanism is very much alive, the Satanic Temple is suing for religious freedom from abortion laws, claiming killing an unborn baby is the same for them as communion is for a Christian.
