I've hesitated about posting the first pic because there may be site visitors with a history in cult ritual abuse, and it certainly isn't my intention to cause offense to those people. However, I hope people can view my art with the understanding that the majority of people interested in the occult are not out there sacrificing babies or abusing people, even though the more insiduous occult organizations do exist. Most of the people who've contacted me about their own history with these organizations came from a background of what could be described as "alternative" spirituality, aka occultism. And by no means are any of those people supportive of the practices of groups involved in predatory paradigms. Ultimately, giving anyone, and most especially those who seek to profit from others' misery, a monopoly on spiritual or religious practice is counterproductive in so many ways. Hope that clarifies things a bit.
