Holy Mother Of God!

Somewhere in Westchester County or the Bronx, there's a group of teenagers laughing their heads off at priests and the police this week. Which is how they'll probably end up being caught.

On the night of 6/6/06, someone or some group sprayed supposedly satanic graffiti all over the grounds of St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers, NY. After the theaters showing the remake of "The Omen" closed for the night. 666 was spray painted on three consecutive steps, in front of the door, a pentagram, upside down crosses, upside down double crosses, but no, this wasn't the work of kids, according to Monsignor Peter Finn or building manager Bob Scully. Nope. Nosiree Bob. Why you may ask? They spelled reign right!

That's right! Spray painted in front of the steps was the phrase, "reign in blood." Hey, didn't Slayer have an album by that name? Yep, they did. Not to mention, 6/6/06 was the day they launched their "Unholy Alliance" tour! OMG! It was also the self-proclaimed National Day of Slayer! Isn't that a massive coincidence with NO pop culture references whatsoever?

Spray painted on two pillars divided in half was, "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven." Perfectly centered! Spelled right! So teenagers couldn't have done this, as we KNOW he public school system would never teach any of them to spell reign right. So it HAS to be the work of a satanic cult. Comparisons were made on the news to Son of Sam. Why you ask? The now Born-Again Berkowitz was a practicing Satanist at the time of the killings, was from Yonkers and has said he used to sacrifice dogs in Yonkers Park. So this must be the work of a second Son of Sam.

Now, why does this have to be Satanists? Because, "better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven" is from John Milton's "Paradise Lost." I kid you not. Nope. That is the ONLY place you will ever see that phrase. Forget Captain Kirk said it on an episode of the original "Star Trek" series. Forget it was paraphrased on "Constantine." Forget Al Pacino says it in "The Devil's Advocate." Nope. It has no frame of reference in pop culture at all. Not a drop.

Now, after the IMDb, (what, you thought I knew that all off the top of my head? I was sure Christopher Walken said it in "The Prophecy" so I visited there and those were the references I found.) I decided to Google the phrase, "reign in Hell" -Milton. I got 156,000 hits for that phrase, including a Cradle of Filth song by that name. No reference in pop culture whatsoever. Nope. Not a one. Monsignor Finn needs to get out more.

So, I decided to make the search a bit more specific. I Googled the full phrase. 56,600 hits. So I added the -Milton. 30,500 hits. Well, there are a lot of hits referencing Social Darwinism in the poetry of John Davidson. -Darwinism. 30,000 hits even! My, the cops who are scouring the web are going to have their work cut out for them. They are scouring the web, Satanic message boards, to see if a cult takes credit. Like they would be that stupid, especially if they watch the news.

OK, there are still "Paradise Lost" hits. Let's remove that phrase. 28,100 hits. From conservative boards to gaming forums where teenagers hang out... Wait a minute. They spelled reign right on gaming forums? But gamers can't spell! Gamers never did their homework and now they're unemployed illiterates who sit in front of their computer, or PS2, or XBox and do nothing else all day. No? But they're teenagers! How did they spell reign right?

OK, something else I noticed... Lots of the hits on the first few pages have myspace in them... Hmmmm... +myspace with all the minuses gone yielded 382 results. Kids who are 19 using it as their tag line. They must be Satanists! There is no other explanation, otherwise they wouldn't know how to spell reign!

The only one with any sense in this at all is Yonkers Mayor Phil Amicone who says it "may well have been a prank," but of course, cops are treating this as a bias incident and Seminary officials are positive it was the work of a cult.

You know, I think this is the work of stupid kids, who were probably stoned and thought it would be cool to do something like this. Not a bias attack, but a prank. "Dude! Like it would totally rock if we spray painted the seminary and made everyone think Satanists did it!" "Dude! Great idea! Does your dad still have all that spray paint in the garage?"

Yeah, I think if they find them, they should have to do community service cleaning up graffiti. Lots of it. If it turns out they were Slayer fans celebrating the day, then they should also have to have their mullets cut and forced into a music appreciation class. Chances are they are Slayer fans and they know how to spell the word based on the album cover.

One thing in the article did catch my eye... "Several books and concerts with satanic themes were released and held." Yep. Ann "cuntscab" Coulter chose that day to release her book. I think she's trying to tell us something about herself.

The pic is some of the actual graffiti. Does this look perfectly symmetrical and like the work of someone who does this on a daily basis to you?

To the religious fantics though..Slayer fans ARE a cult so I guess they are partly right sigh...good stuff...

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/8/2006 1:30 pm:
Yes, yes. But not that kind of cult.

Oh and the saying "Better to riegn in hell than to serve in heaven" is also I believe either a lyric in a slayer song or an actaul title I cant remember which though Its been awhile since Ive listend to any Slayer

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/8/2006 1:31 pm:

OMG AnnThey are serious aren't thye? Cult my ass, unless you consider Old school metsal fans to be a cult. It's a prank, pure and simple. Hell, I would have done it back in the day. Get drunk, stoned, do something dumb. Make the little heathens clean it up. Damn you write such good stuff.

BTW, I think Ann is an attractive woman. Raving sociopath, but still hot. Maybe she just needs a "liberal" dose of......... ARF! But I always have been a dog. Joe

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/8/2006 1:38 pm:
Yes, they are serious. It's a hate crime, not a prank! Satanists did it, not little mullet heads who were wasted!

You know, you haven't seen Coulter lately. The woman is beyond skeletal with that eating disorder of hers. The camera adds 10 pounds and she looks thinner than Karen Carpenter did. Not to mention, the amount of pancake she's been wearing on the live appearances... Well, if she wore bright colors you would see she wears more than Tammy Faye Bakker. She also needs an eye lift. Her eyes are sagging badly. I couldn't believe how bad she's looking. She's not aging well at all.

Kids being kids.

Another way to bring up Satanists, Pagans and others as the downfall of society.

Pretty standard knee-jerk reaction.

Oh, but it had to be Satanists, as John Paul II stood on the very spot where "Reign in blood" was spray painted. The Monsignor said so.

See...it WASN"T a cult! The Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch, The Yeti and The Chupacabra got their hands on some bad hash and managed to conjure up The Boogie Man and he took full advantage of their weak psychotic minds and HE made them do it!

tee hee

Now, now... You know Lilith promised to have sex with them if they desecrated the Seminary. The Boogeyman is a myth!

More nutso stuff here in the good 'ol. Now, I hate defacing people's property - public or private. But I hate even more when the cops jump to conclusions even more. It's just so lazy and they spend more to support their conclusions than if they just traced the damn evidence.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:03 pm:
I know. They're looking at it as a bias attack by Satanists. Instead of checking the local high school and seeing if any of the kids have paint on their hands that they can't get off. It's making me wonder if Slayer's "Reign in Hell" can be synced to "Donnie Darko" the way "Dark Side of the Moon" is supposed to sync to "The Wizard of Oz."

I have that Cradle Of Filth song. I also enjoy Slayer, but I only own two of their CDs.

Personally, I think it was drugged out teenagers, but spelling "reign" right is a mystery. Even I have trouble with "i before e" words, and the only drugs I use are doctor prescibed. Either they got lucky, or they carried a dictionary with them.

I think I know Satanists. They're above spraypainting churches. Anton Szandor LeVay, in an interview in the book Lords Of Chaos condemned the Norwegian Black Metal scene in the mid 90s, when these guys were burning churches, using dead pigs as stage props, and killing their rivals. These guys were worse than the gangster rappers, or they appeared to be. In essence, that whole scene was a bunch of stupid kids doing stupid things, and all have learned, except for Varg Vikerness, AKA Count Grishnach, who seems to gone even more insane. Luckily, he's in a Norwegian prison.

According to giasine, the Satanic Mass gathered in LA on 6-6-06, mainly to enjoy the night, and to see the remake of The Omen. No destruction planned for that night.

As for me, the only real reason for me celibrating 6-6-06 was that my birthday fell on that date.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:22 pm:
The e before i words tend to be easy the more you use them. Weird, reign, foreign, vein, sleigh, eight, freight, seize, either, height, leisure, counterfeit, forfeit, these are off the top of my head. Then you have the words were i comes before e after c. Science, species, sufficient, conscience, are the ones that spring to mind. This has been brought to you by the letters E, C and I...

Of course Satanists are above spray painting churches and seminaries. This was the work of kids, metal heads who were bright enough to pass spelling, not all are dumb headbangers, or they had cheat sheets. Not to mention, think of how many artistically gifted metal heads spend their time painting their favorite album covers. That would drill it into their heads too.

Anton LeVay was more of a showman than anything else. According to Issac Bonewits, who was briefly a member of that church in the late 60s, early 70s, most of the power of the Church of Satan came from blackmailing politicos in San Francisco. But he was good at comdemning idiots and saying, "don't do that, you give us all a bad name."

I actually want to know what that group in LA thought of the remake. From the commercials, it looks like a "why even bother?" movie.

I do hope your birthday was a good one.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:29 pm:
I forgot to mention, you made a good point with spelling. There are adults who get it confused, so who is to say this was done by adults instead of teenagers, especially if adults make the same mistakes?

No I think it was Satanists. More specifically, a renegade attempt at guerilla marketing by whoever is helping promote the Slayer album.

All signs point to a professional touch, as you observe yourself and, as we all know, when a person decides to take his or her first steps into marketing, they must first suckle greedily from Beelzebub's 3rd nipple while their soul is taken from them and ensnared in a familiar creature, the first lien upon the monstrous and unholy debt they have undertaken for eternity.

How do I know this? I work in marketing and I can assure you that every one of us has had to undertake this Faustian pact. Sure, you will meet marketeers who, should you question them, will volubly and persuasively deny that such things occur but remember what it is they are paid to do, and do well. Also, remember who their patron and adoptive father is, before you take their honeyed words at face value.

I'm not recommending that marketing people be racked until their inevitable confession, you understand. You just couldn't get away with it these days, not with all the bleeding hearts, pluralist simps and handwringers.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:24 pm:
Hmmm... So that's why clerks in marketing departments aren't even sure of what their job title is. They haven't made it to management and suckled at The Beast and been taught the arcane secrets of that world! And to think, I thought it was only the sales department that was in league with the devil!

You've made this all so clear for me.

Anything that gets people to read Milton's paradise Lost cannot be all bad! Milton was a rebel and many claim he made Satan much more human and entertaining than God or Jesus... Why we all except to meet our friends in hell!

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:25 pm:
Hey, don't tell the Monsignor that Milton was a rebel. You'll be saying five rosaries while kneeling on broken glass for penance.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/9/2006 5:28 pm:
This is one of the reasons that there are laws now saying stores can't sell spray paint to anyone under 18 and in some cases, 21. NYC adopted that law years ago and they were bucking for NJ, Westchester and Nassau County on LI to pass the same law, as it was too easy for teenagers to travel to those places to get it. Yonkers is in southern Westchester County, on the border of The Bronx. I still believe this is the work of teenagers, ones who paid attention in spelling class.

Oh my God! (Or is that god?)
Shit- fuck- hell- yeah - Satan forever etc.
This is my first visit to your blog and I love you.
I was a spelling bee winner and then later a punk rocker, I can spell reign.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/10/2006 2:22 am:

I only won the sixth grade spelling bee, but I could spell reign by the time I was a teenager. Riegn just doesn't look right, even if you are a bad speller. There hasn't been any more to the story yet, but I'm waiting for some poor fluffbunny who has a chip on his or her shoulder about Christianity to be arrested.
