Move over, Harry Potter! An even more insidious source of "Satanic" influence is ... Roman Catholic church art! Or so say the makers of the documentary Rape of the Soul, which unfortunately I didn't find out about until after it stopped playing here in New York. Oh, well.

Who would make such a film? Perhaps one of the loonier anti-Catholic Protestant fundies such as Jack Chick? No, Rape of the Soul was made by traditionalist Catholics, as one of their ways of trying to come to grips with the clergy pedophilia scandal. (Another of their explanations for clergy pedophilia is an alleged conspiracy of Satanic pedophiles in the Vatican.)

Below are pages about Rape of the Soul:
