Oh hell no, not demons again, you say. Yes, I’m here to tell you, it’s demons again. And Satan too.
It’s demon rape, in fact. And no, it’s not dark fantasy fiction.
Can you be raped by the devil, conservative Christian magazine Charisma asks? Their answer is yes. You can. The Devil can rape your ass. So says Contessa Adams, author of Consequences
As bizarre as it sounds, those who minister to people in occult bondage say it’s more common than you think.
They have no idea how bizarre this sounds. Seriously. They don’t.
More common than I might think?
Here’s the proof:
For nearly two decades, Contessa Adams felt as though she had no power against the demonic violators of her body. She felt trapped in secrecy and shame and knew that the demons tormenting her wanted things to stay that way.
Contessa Adams needs psychiatric help. So does the author of this piece, Cedric Harmon. I’m probably not going too far out on a limb here to suggest that Cedric is repressing something.
Look, I don’t want to make fun of these people. I mean, I’d rather scientifically refute them, but how do you refute prurient rape fantasies?
It’s no secret that the Religious Right-controlled GOP has become rape obsessed. And it’s no secret that they’ve already fielded arguments for gay animal demons. But demons that rape you?
We’re told that “These spiritual rapists… often prey on people by performing sexual acts through nightmares and erotic dreams. Some people become so dependent upon these demonic experiences that they actually look forward to them.”
Wet dreams? People looking forward to wet dreams? Gosh. Imagine that. Especially people who are so sexually repressed that they believe in things like gay animal demons. Kierkegaard said that Christianity is belief in the absurd but I don’t think even he imagined this.
“Anybody that has been attacked by them will tell you … they’re worried [that] they could not find that pleasure with mortal people,” says Adams, who claims she was once possessed by sexual demons.
Somebody has been reading too much dark fantasy. And here’s news for you any nerdy D&D player could tell you:
The two most identifiable sexual demons are the incubus, which is a male sexual demon that traditionally assaults women, and the succubus, which is a female sexual demon that assaults men. Sometimes they also lure people into homosexual behavior.
I bet they just love that.
Adams says the succubus spirit that used to attack her confused her so much that she contemplated becoming a lesbian.
“Unless you’re strong enough to rebuke it, they’ll keep coming back,” she says. “You must speak the Word of God, knowing you have power in the name of Jesus.”
Oh, I hate it when incubi rape me so often I think about becoming gay. I just hate it.
Makes you wonder why anyone endures these repeated spiritual rapes if all they have to do is utter the “Word of God.” Maybe they like it too much?
Fortunately, there is a way to make Satan and his demonic rapists leave you alone: OBEY.
Yes, authoritarianism is like spiritual pesticide. It kills demon rapists dead. What a surprise to discover that the Church wants you to obey. Who knew?
“The Holy Spirit has to reprogram you. If you’re not programmed for obedience, it’s hard to do so,” she teaches. “Once you come out of that world, you’re learning what you can do and what you cannot do. With the Holy Spirit, if [you] go to touch that fire, He will quicken you and tell you, ‘No.’”
Adams also notes that disobedience also produces fear, which is another tool Satan uses.
Really, Yoda? Fear leads to the dark side?
Well hell. Who needs to be reprogrammed when all their kids are being sent to Hitler Youth…er, I mean, Bible camps, to be programmed at a very young age. Maybe Adams is speaking of tune-ups?
You get 50,000 miles as a believer and then into the shop you go?
I hope fundamentalists get a warranty with their baptism. I mean, I’m scratching my head wondering what Jesus died for if he left room for all these demon rapists to gang bang you in your sleep.
But here is the best part:
Adams says: “Fear is their forerunner. If you get paralyzed by fear, they actually will come and rape you. But if you draw near to God, Satan has to flee. Satan’s job is to suggest that you not draw near to God, so that he does not have to flee.”
Gotta wonder, don’t you, how many sexually repressed fundamentalists are going to bed tonight in self-generated fear just so they can get some?
I’m a full-on Heathen, as Pagan as they come. I will tell you right now that historically, demons were just another level of being above humans and below the gods. They had their own shit going on and they didn’t necessary care about humans. Some were good and some were inimical.
It was reasonable in the days before diseases were understood (you know, that science thing) to think illnesses were caused by possession.
But we have science now. We know people get sick for various reasons. none of them include demonic possession – or demonic rape. And if you really believe demonic rape is real, how can you imagine that it could happen to you if you really, genuinely feel you are protected by your god?
The problem is a lack of faith. These people are really struggling to convince themselves that they’re not wasting their time. They tend to get fanatical about it.
I sleep demon free. I mean, if some succubus that looks like Anne Hathaway wants to attack me in my sleep, I’m easy to find. But well adjusted people not struggling to convince themselves their religion is valid, and not struggling with forbidden and repressed sexual feelings, have no need of being raped by demons.
Fundamentalist Christianity, or aberrochristianity as I often call it, is a disease, and I strongly urge anyone afflicted by it to seek help immediately. If there is no 12-step program, I am certain we can arrange one for you.
Seriously. You know where to find us.
