    Was the "Satanic panic" of the 1980s/early 1990s a legitimate concern?

    No, and I think a lot of people owe a lot of other people whose lives have been ruined a collective apology.

    A lot of people whose lives have been ruined? That's a stretch. Have an example of someone who was falsely accused, etc?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Just one example of many.

    Woman recants accusation of sex assault - San Antonio Express-News

    Sitting in the prison where she’s spent nearly half of her life, Elizabeth Ramirez is stunned by the words that could help exonerate her and three friends of the sexual assault of her two nieces, a crime she said she couldn’t fathom let alone commit.

    It never happened, one niece now says of the debauched, orgy-like nightmare that she and her older sister described to San Antonio police in 1994 when they were 7 and 9.

    “I want my aunt and her friends out of prison,” Stephanie, 25, said by phone last week. “Whatever it takes to get them out I’m going to do. I can’t live my life knowing that four women are sleeping in a cage because of me.”

    On and off the witness stand, the sisters changed their accounts of the timing, the use of weapons, the perpetrators and other basic details of the assault every time they told it to authorities, records show.

    It was one of several red flags raised in the Express-News investigation published in December 2010 that also delved into concerns about the scientific legitimacy of medical evidence used against the women, whether anyone looked into a previous rape allegation made by the girls and if anti-gay views prejudiced Ramirez’s jury.
    Probably the most famous exonorated victims of the Satanic panic were the West Memphis Three.

    Words cannot express my contempt for the people involved in that stupidity. The public may be a bunch of mouthbreathing subhuman idiots who might believe in mass satanic conspiracy, its absurd that our courts would lap up such bull****. I was appalled by the credibility given to birthers and truthers, but it seems that our modern lunacy pales in comparison.

    What is worse the "victims" were caused to believe that they were raped in those satanic rituals by wannabe Freudian psychoanalysts. Since repressed memories are outside one's awareness and yet they influence one's behavior it is up to a skilled heavily trained analyst to pick them up and bring into conscious awareness with free association.

    But these amateurs thought that they could relate any problem with sexual rape, impose that the client was not aware of this made up preset, and guided to believe that they were raped under the authority of the expert! After many such clients a detective went the opposite way and made research to find from where were these allegations coming from. These "therapists" were then trialed.

    BTW Einzige I protest to join in to this poll of this thread (will debate though) because you used Wikipedia the free conservapedia as basis of your topic. I hesitate to use data whose foundations are search engines.

    Any documentary, News report, etc., found in Youtube and perhaps other sites would do. This is a well known topic, you should see how I struggle to find other sites except Wikipedia when a topic is less known

    I still remember a friend I had in grade school who had Christian fundamentalist parents who would play heavy metal songs backwards to see if there were any Satanic lyrics to them.
