The devil's in the details

June 26, 2014 

"Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name." The line is from the Rolling Stone's "Sympathy for the devil."

It seems there is a lot of sympathy for old Beelzebub lately. The FBI just reported 170 children rescued from sex trafficking. An investigation is also going on in Hollywood concerning movie studio bosses, film execs and others involved in child sex parties.

Over in London, the late Jimmy Savile has been outed as a decades-long child molestor. The investigation is finding stars, politicians and others involved.

Then we have the music world, TV and movies promoting young people as sex objects.

In Dallas, a daycare is under investigation for duct-taping kids to their beds. Also in the news: a man arrested for having sex with his girlfriend's baby.

It has turned into a very sick, twisted and perverted world where our children aren't safe anymore.

Yeah, Beelzebub must be very happy with his work.
