A McMartin preschooler confesses to making up abuse allegations. I’m glad a person like Debbie Nathan is out there to debunk those silly 1980s Satanic day-care abuse scandals. So many lives ruined over nothing. More here. I have a basic rule: The moment anyone mentions a “Satanic” element to anything, I immediately stop believing it. I remember my grandmother telling me when I was about eight that she’d heard at a PTA meeting that Abbeville, two towns over from my home, was the global center of Satanic cult activity. She even had some sort of mimeographed brochure showing the “symbols” one should look for to prove your child is a Satanist. Yeah, and I’m Anton Levey. More on the McMartin case.
