Abstract

"The Devil Made Me Do It:
Adolescent Attraction to Satanism."

By Lawrence C. Trostle & Melissa S. Green. In Sharon Araji, ed., Society: An Alaskan Perspective, revised printing. Dubuque, IA: Kendall Hunt, 1996, pp. 201-218.

Public fear of satanism has led to a growing belief in a nationwide conspiracy of satanists who commit crimes which especially victimize children and who use drugs, heavy metal music, and fantasy role playing games to recruit adolescents into satanic cults. This article examines some of the claims made about satanic crime in general and about adolescent involvement in satanism and the occult in particular. Belief in a satanic conspiracy can divert concerned adults from taking the constructive actions needed to deal with the problems of troubled adolescents.
