**UPDATED: with corrections & additions May 6**
Some Ritual Abuse advocates, satanic conspiracy theorists and self-professed Ritual Abuse survivors have heaped praise on former Nebraska Senator John DeCamp as a heroic defender of abused children, because he published a conspiracy theory account of the Franklin child prostitution investigation bristling with inferences that “people with wealth, power, and authority” are sick & twisted child rapists. But while he was a Nebraska state senator, John Decamp and his wife were accused of sexually abusing their little girl. [“The Franklin Cover-up”, pg. 63-65] Doesn’t that make DeCamp, by their own logic, guilty of being a child abusing pedophile? Actually, the idea that – for a parent to be innocent of abuse, the child must be a liar – is based on a false assumption. The accusation against the parent might not have come from their child, at all. As in the case of Senator and Mrs. DeCamp, the accuser could be another adult and not a member of their family, and that accusation could be – and was – declared to be false without making their daughter who never did accuse them, a liar.
John DeCamp was also a lawyer for an organization very similar to Ralph Underwager’s VOCAL, called the National Child Abuse Defense and Resource Center: “…which fights against false accusations of child abuse, and is made up of adults who have been falsely accused of child abuse”. [“The Franklin Cover-up”, pg. xxiii] John DeCamp defended people accused of sexually abusing a child, and as he himself described it, not only did he get accused abusers found innocent and set free, his role was often to interrogate the child accusers until they broke down and confessed to having lied!
Ritual Abuse advocates, satanic cult conspiracy theorists and satanic panic promoters profess to be the outraged spokespeople for abused children.
However, some Ritual Abuse advocates, satanic cult conspiracy theorists, self-professed Ritual Abuse survivors and other satanic panic promoters have confessed to & been convicted of all manner of crimes against children; molestation, sexual assault, child pornography, rape, and even murder.
JOHN TODD – aka John Todd Collins aka Lance Collins, was an evangelical testimonialist who popularized Illuminati and satanic cult conspiracy theories throughout America in the 1970’s and 1980’s. In 1987 has was charged with raping a young woman and molesting two children. Convicted in 1988, sentenced to 30 years. Died in prison in 2007. Despite being a child molestor and rapist, Todd is called a hero & martyr by Satanic Ritual Abuse & Mind Control conspiracy theorists who slander Underwager as “pro-pedophile”.
TONY ALAMO – born Bernie Lazar Hoffman, was an American evangelical and founder of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries. He was a prolific anti-occult, anti-catholic, anti-gay promoter of satanic panic in the 1970’s and ’80’s. Alamo was arrested in 2008 as part of a child-porn investigation and subsequently charged with transporting minors across state lines for sex.
“One girl told the FBI that Alamo repeatedly fondled her when she was 8, then “married” her in May 2000 when she was 9. She was still 9 when he took lewd photos of her and had intercourse with her, she said. He watched adult porn films with her in his bedroom, she added. A second girl said she was 12 when Alamo had intercourse with her. When she was 14, Alamo took her to California, where he had sex with her in motel rooms and at his California compound, she said. An informant told the FBI that she saw Alamo sometimes take more than one girl at a time to his bedroom, where he kept candy bars and a Barbie doll collection.” – SPLC, July 24, 2009.
Tony Alamo was convicted on 10 counts of transporting underage girls across state lines for sex, in 2009, and sentenced to 175 years in prison.
PAUL BONACCI – convicted at age 21 of molesting a 9 year old boy on three occaisions, Bonacci had a novel albeit offensive rationalization. He claimed that he had Multiple Personality Disorder, and that one of his alters was gay and therefore a child molestor! When the gay guy inside him took over, he would make Paul molest little boys, he said. Bonacci was diagnosed as MPD by the prison psychiatrist, after Bonacci related a pathetic life history of chronic negligence and abuse by older boys and men. Subsequently, Bonacci would relate ever more elaborate tales of victimization in child porn, prostitution and satanic abuse rings, to various interviewers. He also confessed to involvement in kidnapping missing 12 year old Johnny Gosch from Des Moines when he himself was 15, and subsequently raping the boy repeatedly on a rural property just outside the city limits. Bonacci was also interviewed by Dr Judianne Densen-Gerber, a self-professed expert on Ritual Abuse and MPD, while still in prison. She declared him a genuine MPD with “an extraordinary memory for detail”, which is interesting considering that episodic amnesia and problematic memory recall is supposed to be a necessary symptom of MPD.
“Meeting with Paul, I have spoken to several of his personalities. Three psychiatrists who have examined him concurred in the diagnosis of Multiple Personality Disorder, brought on by horrible, traumatic abuse when he was a child. My first act with respect to representing Paul Bonacci was to have him write down everything he could remember, about individuals who had abused him, from his earliest boyhood. An excerpt from what he wrote appears in Chapter 10. In that document and in Paul’s letters, his handwriting will vary, depending on which personality is in control.
Bonacci was sentenced to five years in prison in 1989, for molesting a young boy for whom he was baby-sitting. Apparently one of Paul’s homosexual personalities was in control of him during the incident, in which he briefly put his hand on the outside of the young boy’s pants, an activity stopped when a remorse-stricken Paul reasserted control…” – The Franklin Cover-Up
Despite being a convicted child molestor and confessing to participation in kidnapping & rape of a younger boy, Bonacci is called a hero & martyr by Satanic Ritual Abuse & Mind Control conspiracy theorists.
REVEREND JAMES BEVEL – James Bevel was a civil rights hero, but his train starting running off the tracks after he became involved with Lyndon Larouche. Judianne Densen-Gerber was friends with Mrs Larouche and involved in Larouche’s Schiller Institute. Not long after Densen-Gerber left Omaha, James Bevel arrived to lead the “Citizens Fact-Finding Commission to Investigate Human Rights Violations of Children in Nebraska”, on behalf of the Schiller Institute, and as an advocate for imprisoned Paul Bonacci. The group distributed petitions seeking to reopen the Franklin Child Prostitution Investigation, but Bevel never submitted the petitions to the Legislature and left the state the following year.
“In May 2007, Bevel was arrested in Alabama on charges of incest committed sometime between October 1992 and October 1994 in Virginia. The accuser, one of his daughters, was 13–15 years old at the time, and lived with him in the Leesburg apartment. Three of his other daughters have also alleged that Bevel sexually abused them, although not with intercourse. Charged with one-count of unlawful fornication in Virginia, which has no statute of limitations for incest. His four-day trial in April 2008 included “testimony about Bevel’s philosophies for eradicating lust, and parents’ duties to sexually orient their children”. During the trial, the accusing daughter testified that she was repeatedly molested beginning when she was six years old”. – Wikipedia
Bevel was convicted and sentenced to 15 years.
JAMES and MARIE LAPPE – foster parents to 4 young children from the same birth family, the Lappe’s ran a therapeutic foster care home in Texas. Following a meeting of concerned parents, where Catherine Gould’s checklist of Satanic Ritual Abuse symptoms was handed out, the Lappe’s returned home full of satanic panic and proceeded to “diagnose” all of the children as SRA victims. They began subjecting the children to physical torments such as running up and down the stairs until they were past exhaustion, then demanding confessions of their parent’s involvement in the satanic cult and subjecting them to horrific abuse. Little Bobby Vernon, aged 7, refused to affirm the Lappe’s fantasies. He would not falsely accuse his parents of hurting him. Determined to force “the truth” out of the boy, the Lapp’s slammed his head on the ground over & over until they broke his skull. He died later in hospital. [I could be wrong about this. I had been led to believe that Bobby Vernon eventually succumbed to the injuries which apparently left him in a permanent vegetative state. I’m unable to verify his passing, however] The Lappe’s were subsequently found dead in their home from overdoses of prescription medicine. [According to some reports, James shot himself while Marie died of an overdose].
The Free Lance Star article, December 2, 1995, reporting that Bobby Vernon was left permanently vegatative, and the death of the Lappes, with background details:
Dr Bruce Perry’s version of these events, from his “The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog” :
Despite being murderous child abusers, Satanic Ritual Abuse & Mind Control conspiracy theorists claim they were actually assassinated by the fantasized satanic cult, and declare them to be heroic martyrs!
Oh yes! Murderous child abusers, child molestors and rapists are heroes and martyrs to Satanic Ritual Abuse & Mind Control victim claimants and their advocates. That’s how little they really care about the wellbeing of children.
[I can’t be certain at this time, that Bobby Vernon has in fact passed away as a result of the life-threateningly extreme abuse inflicted on him by the Lappes. Regretably, there are more cases of children murdered by witch-hunting SRA true believers and advocates. See below]

CHILDREN TORTURED TO DEATH BY WITCH-HUNTING EVANGELICALS
“Hundreds of children may be left to starve, beaten and having chili rubbed into their eyes. Youngsters born with physical and mental difficulties are most at risk from abuse. Relatives often believe that the children are ‘possessed’ and the torture is carried out as a form of exorcism. Extreme evangelical Christian churches – most prevalent in the Democratic Republic of Congo – have grown significantly in recent years and their influence is thought to have spread to groups in the UK.
A decade ago the death of Victoria Climbie suffered appalling injuries at the hands of her aunt and boyfriend who believed she was possessed by the devil, sparking huge public anger. She [was] tied up, hit with bike chains and attacked with lighted cigarettes. [She died in 2002] As officials try to combat the extreme beliefs, social services have been issued with a new set of guidelines to help them deal with youngsters from religious and ethnic minority backgrounds who could suffer abuse, The Times revealed“.
The UK’s SAFF organization, one of the original and consistantly brilliant debunkers of Satanic Panic, analyze and reveal the hypocrisy of attempts to blame practitioners of pagan or neo-pagan faiths [indigenous pagans from non-Western nations, self-professed “satanists” and “witches”, etc.] for the extreme torture & death inflicted upon innocent children by Satan-hunting Evagelicals and exorcists who claim the children are demonically possessed witches secretly in the service of Satan;
The authorities looked at any and every excuse, including trying to blame it on Satanists or ‘Voodooists’…but the scandal still continues and is almost without exception caused by Christian Child Exorcisms.
“Despite powerful documentaries exposing the plight of hundreds of thousands of children (Click on the photograph alongside to see Dan Harris’s sickening documentary In The Name of Jesus for ABC’s Nightline which makes the subject horrifically clear; and I challenge you not to weep buckets whilst watching this video) U.K. child protection acted as though Child Exorcism Abuse was an aberration and would somehow disappear but under the sheer weight of cases the government was at last forced into investigating further. The result, the Stobart Report, was terminally flawed because its author Eleanor Stobart listened to Black Christians and orthodox religious lobbies whose main priority was to exonerate their own churches and blame it on ‘the witches’ “.

including tragic stories of torture and murder such as this;
“Boy, 15, ‘tortured to death with hammer and chisels on Christmas Day because relative thought he was a witch’
Kristy Bamu was killed by his sister and her boyfriend, Old Bailey is told. Boy eventually drowned in bath, in such pain he couldn’t keep his head above water, court hears. Police recovered bloodstained pliers, a hammer chisel and several knives from the flat.
By Daily Mail Reporter : 5th January 2012
A teenager accused of witchcraft was tortured to death by his sister and her partner in ‘a tale of horror’ on Christmas Day, the Old Bailey heard. Eric Bikubi, 27, and Magalie Bamu, 28, attacked Kristy Bamu, 15, and his two sisters with pliers, knives and a hammer after accusing them of being ‘sorcerers’, it is claimed. Kristy was in such pain after days of being attacked with sticks, a metal bar, hammer and chisel that he begged to die, jurors heard. The teenage boy had suffered 101 injuries – his face and head were covered in cuts and some of his teeth were missing when he was found in the blood-soaked flat”.
DEVIN NORRIS – “heroic whistleblower” is child porn pervert!
“RALEIGH – United States Attorney George E.B. Holding announced that in federal courtyesterday DEVIN RAY NORRIS, of Raleigh, North Carolina, pled guilty before United States District Judge Terrence W. Boyle to transportation of child pornography, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2252(a)(2).
A Federal Grand Jury returned a Criminal Indictment on February 17, 2010.
On December 5, 2008, law enforcement received information from Best Buy in Raleigh that they found child pornography on NORRIS’ desktop computer after he brought it in for repair. After receiving consent from NORRIS to search the computer, forensics analysis revealed that the computer contained 86 videos and over 3,000 pictures of child pornography. Further analysis of Yahoo Messenger chats revealed that NORRIS was attempting to trade child pornography.
After interviews with NORRIS, he consented to turn over a second computer and several CD’s. Forensic analysis revealed that the computer had previously been “cleaned.” An additional approximately 774 pictures of child pornography were recovered from the CD’s”.
Devin Norris, a Patriot Action Network member with plans to run for President of the USA, had a radio program titled: “Revolution Now!”, on which he ranted about typical Patriot obsessions like the New World Order Illuminati conspiracy. A week or so after dropping off his computer for repair, Norris had “The Franklin Scandal” author Nick Bryant on his program. They ranted about how evil the alleged “Elite Pedophile Satanist” conspiracy was, and how devoted they both were to saving our kiddies from the child pornographer/ child rapist/child sacrificer scum they claim are in control of the USA.
The very next day, the FBI arrested Norris for the disgusting filth on his computer. Predictably, Nick Bryant and a host of other Ritual Abuse & Mind Control conspiracy theorist posted outraged protests that this heroic journalist was being railroaded by the FBI to shut him up!
“Please help make this truth hero’s plight known. I read several days ago, a post by his sister, which said that he is not being allowed any darkness to sleep, curtailed privileges, no charges have been filed, he looks ill, and when pressed, the attorney snapped that she hadn’t…
The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring’s pimps were a pair of political powerbrokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks.The legislators’ efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network.
Within 24 hours after the show Devin Norris was detained”.
But Norris voluntarily turned over even more child porn, and pled guilty. He was sentenced to 12 years:
“RALEIGH — A Raleigh man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison on a federal child pornography charge after employees at a Best Buy found pornographic images on a desktop computer the man brought in for repair.
Devin Ray Norris, 37, pleaded guilty to transportation of child pornography in federal court in October. A federal judge sentenced him Tuesday.
After Best Buy employees called police, Norris gave investigators consent to search his computer and turned over compact discs, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Investigators determined that the computer and the CDs contained more than 6,000 images of child pornography“.
DELMART VREELAND – another “heroic” “whistleblowing” child abuser
Although not on record as a Satanic Ritual Abuse true believer himself, Vreeland deserves mention here because of the astonishing number of SRA true believers who absolutely worshipped this man for many years.
A petty criminal with an extensive record, Demart Vreeland became the darling of the conspiracy theorist world after claiming to be a secret US Naval Intelligence operative who had predicted the 9/11 attacks and attempted to warn Canadian authorities of the impending crisis while in jail in Canada. The list of conspiranoid and SRA true believers who bought this line of BS and worshipped Vreeland as a heroic whistleblower include; Jeff Wells, Jeff Rense, Mike Ruppert, Sander Hicks, Kris Milligan and Alex Jones, along with thousands of their deluded fans. But Vreeland was just another child abusing con-artist.
“A man with an international following has been sentenced to 336 years to life in prison after he was convicted of luring two boys into performing sex acts and making child pornography.
Delmart Edward Vreeland, 42, of the Cottonwood subdivision in Douglas County, was convicted in 2006 of 13 felony charges, including inducement of child prostitution, sexual assault, sexual exploitation of children, and distribution of cocaine. Earlier this year, he was convicted of six habitual criminal counts.
Vreeland was arrested in October 2004 for numerous charges including child prostitution. Witnesses reported that Vreeland provided drugs and alcohol to two teenage boys, and then induced them to perform sex acts and make child pornography for the promise of thousands of dollars and a drum set. The victims reported Vreeland to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives conducted an extensive background search on Vreeland and learned that he was wanted in several states and Canada. He has over 40 aliases and an extensive criminal history dating back over 20 years.
Vreeland posted bond and cut off his ankle bracelet, fleeing the state. Detectives tracked him down in Iowa and brought him back to Colorado.
Douglas County authorities called Vreeland an international “folk hero” and conspiracy theorist who claimed that while he was incarcerated in a Canadian Jail in 2001 he forewarned Canadian officials of the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
Vreeland has claimed to be a U.S. spy, a covert operative, and a Naval Intelligence Officer, all of which have been proven false, according to investigators. U.S. Naval records show that in 1986 Vreeland was kicked out of basic training for his inability to conform to military regulations.
Vreeland has continually claimed to have information on terror plots and high profile murder and kidnapping cases. However, Douglas County detectives and the FBI state that Vreeland’s claims have no merit, and he is not a credible source of information”.
