Satanist groups have rejected the claims of "Craigslist killer" Miranda Barbour who said she joined a satanic cult and killed 22 people. The groups said Barbour is not part of any official organization.
"According to our records, we have never had any contact from this woman, nor her accomplice," said Magus Peter Gilmore, head priest of the Church of Satan, according to CNN. "It seems to me that she is calling herself a member of a 'satanic cult,' not a legally incorporated above-ground form of Satanism."
The 19-year-old Pennsylvania woman is being charged with the Nov. 11 killing of Troy LaFerrara, Pa., who she and her husband met through Craigslist. more >>

Fans of rapper and producer Kanye West recently developed a new religion called Yeezianity, which is based on his Yeezus character introduced on his sixth album.
This group of people created a movement and website inspired by West and believe he was sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity.
"In a lot of ways, after I created it, I reflected on it and thought that this was just a rehashing of Christianity, but just throwing Yeezus instead of Jesus," said the anonymous founder of the religion in an interview with noisey.vice.com. "And you know what? That's why I felt Kanye did it. He just put that name there. Jesus has all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing- and that's why I say in the 'Our Savior' part of the site, 'We don't speak of his public persona,' Because Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel we all have the potential to do." more >>
The new HBO original series "True Detective" starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson debuted this past Sunday and proved that there are still many themes to explore within the police drama.
The show follows the lives of two detectives, Martin Hart (Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (McConaughey), giving their account of a murder case from 1995 to new detectives in 2012. This allows the series to play out in two different time zones and features older and younger versions of both characters.
Hart and Cohle, who are no longer partners in the present day, worked on a case in the '90s that involved the murder of prostitute Dora Lange. The homicide, which took place in rural Lousiana, appeared to be related to the occult. These two detectives oppose one another on most things as Rust, also known as the Tax Man, steps on toes with his unorthodox approach to his work and life while Martin Hart strives to keep some kind of normalcy while working on this deranged murder with a partner he doesn't trust. more >>
A Satanic Temple holiday display at the Florida Capitol featuring Satan descending into the fires of hell has been rejected by the Department of Management Services for being "grossly offensive."
"The Department's position is that your proposed display is grossly offensive during the holiday season," read an email by DMS Administrative Assistant Sherrie K. Routt shared by Tallahassee.com on Wednesday.
The display is a kiosk decorated as the pits of hell, with an angel seemingly descending into the fires. It features the Bible verse Luke 10:18, which reads: "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven;" as well as Isaiah 14:12: "How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!" more >>
