During a nightly news broadcast, ABC in Australia accidentally aired a clip of a satanic meeting as they ran a segment on police dog welfare.
The clip shows suit-clad men standing outside a building but quickly cuts to a visual of three people wearing black and standing beside a brightly lit, upside-down cross.
“Hail, Satan!” one of them loudly proclaims, before the clip quickly cuts out.
It is not known how the clip of the ritual made its way into a segment on police dogs. ABC TV has not yet addressed the incident.
Where did the footage originate from?
The footage appeared to have come from a Facebook video of the “Noosa Temple of Satan,” a satanic group based in Queensland, Australia. The same clip can been seen at the eight-minute mark of the group’s live stream from October 30.
The Noosa Temple, which is composed of self-described Satanists, recently made the news in Australia. Led by its founder Robin Bristow, who is better known by the name “Brother Samael Demo-Gorgon,” the group is pushing for the Australian government to allow Satanists to teach religious classes in schools, per an August 12 report by the Brisbane Times.
