Just had a flash of memory of being a kid and drawing peace symbols on everything and being scolded because it was a "broken cross" and therefore satanic. Now I see just how incongruous peace and christianity really truly are. Christians want war and always have, so its no wonder the peace sign would be an annoyance to them, even if subconsciously. I grew up in the days when satanic cults were all over the news and people thought you could hear messages from satan if you played certain rock albums backwards. I actually kind of miss those days of satanic panic. They seem so quaint now. No one's afraid of the devil anymore, he's lost his mojo--replaced by terrorism and homosexuality.

I don't think I've ever heard of satanic issues in any location that didn't have a strong Christian presence...in other words the satanic stuff never exists in a vacuum

Yes I agree Eric. Xtians aren't peaceful. History shows us that.
I have never heard that the peace symbol was a broken cross.
Satanic panic is right! Yeah I remember hearing about how rock music was evil and had satanic versus if you played it backwards.
I was brought up in a conservative religious home and so I heard those comments.
