We assessed the area and noted that the wide open windows, collapsing front door, and general open floor plan was very weak security-wise. In the process of trying to make it more defensible, we spotted a sniper across the way and everyone got down. The sniper left after a couple failed shots, but we feared them arriving to bust in door and complete their work. We stayed low, armed ourselves with what was available, and waited to defend ourselves, but no one came. I opted to go for additional supplies and a neighbor in the building was contacted, he was able to take them into his more secured place while I would be gone. I don’t remember anything after that.

Lucenti Humanifesto

We were raised to believe witchcraft was not only real but also part of a deliberate effort by the devil to lead us astray. Our parents claimed that Jay’s Journal — which told of one Utah teenager’s descent into “satanic paganism” — was an actual autobiography. Most of us were encouraged to read it as a manual for how to avoid the devil’s snare. Some of us saw through…
