Duct tape: Keeps demons out. Do not use on children.

Parents Duct Tape “Demon Possessed” Children | FOX2now.com.

Two parents who admittedly duct taped their children inside an SUV in a Walmart parking lot said they did so because they were “demon possessed.”

During Tuesday’s court hearing, the judge dropped five felony counts of aggravated child endangerment against both parents. The couple still faces three felony counts.

A police officer testified in court that the couple’s 12-year-old daughter said her two youngest siblings, ages seven and five, were occasionally tied up with their faces and eyes covered with duct tape to keep the demons out.

During the preliminary hearing, the court also learned the couple was regular listeners of Steve Quayle, a conspiracy theorist, who, according to his website, believes the world is coming to an end. In the introduction to his 2003 book, Genetic Armageddon: Todays Technology — Tomorrows Monsters (sic), Quayle says, “It is safe to say that most those reading this book will live to see this terrifying future, and may know the sorrow of seeing loved ones herded into death camps, and of seeing mankind ground into powder under the metal and clawed feet of amoral supermen. This future will make the mass genocide’s of the 20th Century pale by comparison.

Not your typical American family. What do you do if you know people bringing up their kids with such wild ideas? Not much. But when it crosses the line to abuse, then you can speak up.

    Never heard of this Steve Quayle.

    Call me paranoid, but when I hear anyone talk about 2012 (even if they’re joke), I always try to debunk that crap.

      Quayle is a hardcore Doomer who used to host a nightly radio show (which was fairly similar to Alex Jones’s show, but Steve talked a lot more about paranormal topics). During his shows he’d get so worked up that I was often afraid he’d have a heart attack on air.

        Steven Quayle fashions himself as an expert on security, usually rumor-mongering various dire predictions, sort of a less competent Alex Jones.

        He also writes about giants, in the Biblical sense, but supposed evidence from archaeology and anthropology therefore. It’s about what you’d expect.

    I’ve been saying for years that demonology is the unified field theory of early 21st century paranormality, and it is only going to get worse.

    Five counts were dropped by the judge? Dafaq? And the remaining three may be reduced to misdemeanor? What the hell???
