This pamphlet and its following statistical analysis is of supreme impor-
tance to parents, free-thinkes, social workers and Government. It is the 
first time any organisation has punctured the conspiracy of silence which 
hides the tremendous risk to children from paedophile clergy.

------------- NOTES: This list finalised July 1991.  Every case has been 
thoroughly researched and can be fully supported with documented evidence of 
dates, places, court records, sources, times and names. It is highly 
abbreviated here for practical purposes but we can say that the details of 
the abuses are exceedingly horrible and many exhibit virtually identical 
abuses to those alleged to take place in so-called Satanic Ritualised Abuse. 
We invite further correspondence and offer free research facilities on all our 
data to any serious enquirer.


FREQUENCY OF CHRISTIAN RITUAL ABUSE: The S.A.F.F. only began collecting, 
collating and analysing Sexual Abuse linked with ecclesiastics during 1989 
hence the sample of cases grew as our scope and ability to source them 
increased.  The early years are therefore sparse but this reflects the lack of 
attention so far applied to them. 

Since 1978 we have logged over ONE HUNDRED convictions of Christian Ritualised 
Abuse. Compare these DEFINITE cases with the six uncorroborated cases 
promoters of Satanic Ritualised Abuse have unearthed over the same period and 
the true nature of both is immediately apparent. 

The average yearly level of abuse going by our 1989/90 & 91 figures can be 
considered representational at two dozen cases per year, a shocking figure. 
We did not collate cases prior to 1989 and we must remember that not all cases 
are detected and brought to court but applying the average from the firm 
statistics we do have we come up with the terrible result that whilst Time 
Tate and his pro-SRAMists have been occupying the nation with sensationalism 
about six cases of Satanic Ritual Abuse, more than TWO HUNDRED cases of 
Christian Ritual Abuse are likely to have occurred.  The tragedy of the 
suffering of innocent children in this situation is too miserable to 

COVERAGE: Please note that we have NOT included ALL the cases we have on file. 
There are many further cases which we have researched which confirm the 
overall picture but which are insignificantly unique and which we have 
therefore left out. These are open to scrutiny if needed. We also have a large 
pile of quite serious and shocking Christian Ritual Abuse cases which were 
reported mid-trial and which look likely to have ended in convictions but 
which we have not yet sourced the verdicts for. 

STATISTICAL COMPARISONS: The data from our research is now large enough to 
form predictions of the yearly frequency of what can now be seen to be a very 
serious problem of  Christian Ritual Abuse. We are not here looking at a 
sporadic and unusual manifestation of Christian Ritual Abuse caused by a 
handful of rogue Vicars.  The shocking facts are that statistics show a 
definite and continuing proportion of the clergy who are pre-disposed to 
commit terrible crimes against children in their care. This phenomenon carries 
across all age levels and is represented in novitiates  as well as established 
ecclesiastics - it is not a passing node which will eventually dissipate 
itself given time.  Action must be called for from government to deal with 
this problem.  Additionally it has to be said that a not insignificant portion 
of these Christian Ritual Abusers re-offend when allowed to continue in their 

CONCLUSIONS AND CONTINGENCIES: We want to know what our social services and 
the Department of Health are doing about this crisis and why they haven't 
identified it as a problem?  Why was it left to us to highlight? 

Additionally we would like to know why there has been such an immense amount 
of professional time and resources squandered over the past three years  upon 
the Wild Goose chase of so-called Satanic Ritualised Abuse, when its leading 
promoter , journalist Tim Tate, has only been able to cobble together six 
possible cases in the past eight years? (an average of 1.3 cases per year)

Even if we leave aside the argument over validation  of these cases; even if 
we avoid the controversy over whether Satanic Abuse actually  exists (and our 
research shows that it does not) then we are still left with the statistical 
certainty that XXX children are at risk from Christian Sexual Abusers each 


year yet  Social Workers have  'turned a blind eye' to this DEFINITE sickening 
threat to the well-being of our nation's children in favour of chasing the 

This certainly isn't through ignorance of Christian Sexual Abuse for the 
profession is well aware of the problem but seems to avoid addressing it as a 
public issue whenever it can. Ray Wyre, head of the Gracewell Clinic for male 
sexual abusers, one of the countries foremost experts in child-abuse re-
offenders, and an advisor to many local social services departments. He has 
admitted that Christian Ritualised Abuse is a well-known phenomenon within 
social work. He is on record as saying: "I have worked with more vicars who 
have abused than ever Satan Worshippers" (Interview with the Northern Echo, 
August 24 1990)  

Additionally as early as 1987, Dianne Core of the CHILDWATCH group 
acknowledged the problem with Christian Ritualised Abuse by personally 
travelling to London to present a confidential 'dossier' to the Archbishop of 
Canterbury which involved data on 10 Christian Ritual Abuse cases under 
Childwatch surveillance,  five of which were then unresolved. No specific 
action was taken by Lambeth Palace on this issue in response to the dossier 
and a year later Ms Core took an entirely different tack and became one of the 
major players in promoting the idea of Satanic Ritual Abuse.  Had Ms Core 
forgotten about Christian Ritualised Abuse?   Did Ms Core's surveillance of 
the child abuse scene fail to catch the XX cases of Christian Ritual Abuse 
which occurred during the next few years? 

And what about her parliamentary representative Geoffrey Dickens? During 1987 
he was claiming that "There had been a significant increase in homosexual 
clergymen leading to an increase in abuse of young boys"  Yet by 1988 he had 
joined forces with Ms Core to become a major player in the promotion of the 
idea of Satanic Ritualised Abuse and has not made mention of Christian 
Ritualised Abuse since. 

Additionally, why is it that, in his scouring of court records on child-abuse 
to obtain data for his recent book  "Children for the Devil - Ritual Abuse and 
Satanic Crime " in which he attempts, and fails, to prove a connection, the 
journalist Tim Tate never stumbled across or became alerted to the significant 
frequency of cases of Christian Ritualised Abuse?  

So if those at the leading edge of social work, child-care and the treatment 
of sexual abuse offenders are aware of the risk, why have they spent so much 
time, like Mr Tate,  flogging the dead horse of Satanic Ritual Abuse and 
ignoring Christian Ritual Abuse? 

Our data shows that sentences for NON-clerics who abuse are very much stronger 
than for clerics whose crimes tend to be looked upon as 'abnormalities' of 
behaviour.  Yet our research shows that their crimes are anything but. They 
are predictable, repetitive and, unfortunately,  far from 'abnormal' in the 
general way of things.  

The fact is that like Ray Wyre, who once trained as a Baptist Minister, and 
the head of the NSPCC who was a Methodist Minister,  the majority of social 
workers are Christians themselves and in the Satanic Ritual Abuse vs. 
Christian Ritual Abuse controversy seem to have a blind-spot for Christian 
Ritual Abuse in inverse proportion to their obsession with Satanic Ritual 

SUMMING UP:   The S.A.F.F. has provided a most important public service by 


highlighting the problem of Christian Ritualised Abuse and all decent citizens 
of this country will expect the Social Services and the Government to make use 
of this information and tackle the unacceptable level of Christian Ritualised 

It must not be thought that such conclusions are in any way anti-Christian or 
sectarian. Obviously there are many millions of ardent Christians who love and 
care for children. What we are saying is that there are too many who abuse 
them under the auspices of and through the opportunities given to them by 
their position in various Christian Churches and this must be stopped by 
preventative methods.  Christian Ritualised Abuse is a reality and for our 
society to turn a blind eye to that whilst persecuting religious minorities 
for the same assumed crimes is a most despicable hypocrisy which endangers our 

Whilst professionals field these arguments back and forth our children are 
being horribly abused and irreversibly traumatised for the rest of their lives 
by Christian Ritualised Abuse. There is  NO time to delay.  The problem of 
Christian Ritualised Abuse must be acknowledged and the police, social workers 
and care-agencies must be trained to prevent it, detect it and deal with it 
NOW not later. We demand nothing less and the official response to these 
incontrovertible statistics will show the public and history at large whether 
the social services of this country are full of hollow self-righteous 
propaganda to justify their existence or whether they REALLY care for the 
children whose safety they are supposed to protect. 

UPDATE: BLACK MUSEUM 1 was very influential and used in evidence during the 
U.K. government's Inquiry into the victimisations of innocent children and 
their parents during the Orkney Satanic Child Abuse fiasco.  Also see BLACK 
MUSEUM 2, (BLAKMUS2.MSS) Published  August 1996 for further corroborating 
statistical conclusions based on surveillance of hundreds of further cases 
of Clergy Abuse since BM1 which provides undeniable proof of the continuing 
cover up of widespread Crimes against children by a powerful sections of 
the Christian community and the real threat to the offspring of unaware 

CONCLUSION:  During a ten year period in which inordinate amounts of public 
money and child-care resources have been spent chasing the phantom of 
Satanic Abuse, there have been NO genuine cases found in the U.K. at all. 
Not one.  The Satanic Ritual Abuse Myth was a propaganda smoke-screen 
promoted consciously or unconsciously by the Christian Churches in order to 
focus the public's attention away from the epidemic of Child abuse occur-
ring in their own ranks.
