Thomas's story gets even more bizarre in the next section, "Who is Your Lord?" In an account reminiscent of Pazder's Michelle Remembers, Thomas claims that Asmodeus offered to conduct a ritual in which she could have sex with Lucifer himself. "I was about to know Lucifer better by seeing him in the flesh, having intercourse with him and receiving his mark on me!" Thomas claims. "I had to fast for two days," Thomas continues, "and remain within the protective circle (into which witches draw gods and spirits so they cannot harm them)." Wiccans, Pagans, Satanists and Ceremonial Magicians will all tell you that one doesn't "draw gods and spirits" into the circle "so they cannot harm them." The magical Circle is considered a protection from influences outside the circle. For this reason Ceremonial Magicians call spirits into a triangle outside of the circle, otherwise the circle cannot protect them. Wiccans do "draw down" the gods into the circle, as do the followers of some Afro Caribbean religions. However, the gods, lwas or whoever is called are there at the invitation of the celebrants. Obviously you don't call them into the Circle if you want to be protected from them.

Thomas then claims that she used her own blood to call upon "Lucifer":

"To summon Lucifer I needed to use my own blood - sacrificing myself to him. Blood would come to play a very important part in my spells from now on - Satan's perversion of Christ's sacrifice for us on the cross. I went into a trance as I chanted the invocation to Lucifer - promising to be his forever, promising him my life. I felt icy prickles on my skin, and my candles blew out, leaving me with only the impression that something was in the room with me. A force slammed into my brain and I knew Lucifer was with me. He told me that if I served him well he would protect me - but he had no mercy on the weak. From now on I would do anything he chose. He told me how he hated Christians, and ordered me to do everything I could against them. He let me know the truth, that he was Satan, but told me that the God of the Bible had few powers and that he, Satan, would defeat Jesus. To ensure his power over me Satan had sex with me - which wasn't exactly pleasant but which I thought wodnerful [sic] at the time because it connected me to him. Then he marked me with his power, leaving a brand in the shape of an upside-down pentagram on my arm."

This is a variation on the "mark of the Beast" that we've seen various fundamentalists like Texe Marrs ranting about throughout this series. You'll recall that Michelle Pazder also claimed to have been branded with a mark in Pazder's book Michelle Remembers. You'd think that Thomas would include a photo of this brand in her site. If you did, you'd be disappointed, and a bit later you'll see that Thomas borrows another idea from Pazder to take care of this evidential problem.

From here Thomas launches into a alleged description of her coven's activities with the title "Blood, Blood and More Blood." The story gets even more bizarre:

"We regularly met to praise Satan, Baal, Astarte and all the other old opponents of the God of the Bible. We hated Christians and tried hard to think of ways to destroy them for good. We had some success in this area - lukewarm Christians could be attacked, but true believers were impossible to get to. We put it down to our weakness and went on trying."

NOTE: You can see where Thomas is going with this. It is a variation on the old "Satan is already defeated" nonsense that we've seen so many of the others that I've written about use.

"We summoned the dead on many occasions, asking long-dead witches for advice. It was from these that we heard over and over again of the power of blood. We had been using our own blood to make our spells more powerful for some time but the spirits told us that sacrifices worked better. We were so debased that out only query was what we should sacrifice and how to avoid calling attention to ourselves."

NOTE: This is a theme that is unique to Thomas. None of the other Satanic Conspiracy myth disseminators that I've written about have claimed to have been in contact with "long-dead witches". Of course this nonsense suggests that witches have always performed blood sacrifices, which is not the case.

"We began by using cats - as long as they were well buried, or eaten by dogs then no one would suspect anything. We practised cruel tortures on those poor animals for our own pleasure. We got worse and worse the more spirits we called, and started to use dogs, pigeons - anything we could get our hands on. Satan was leading up to something, and we understood what when he spoke to us himself one day and ordered us to sacrifice a child. We were Satan's servants, we did not object, but were worried about getting caught. Satan laughed at our worries and told us that we had brethren in all sorts of unlikely places - there are thousands of missing children every year and the pagan police officers would be sure to say our victims were either just missing or, in case of any bodies being discovered, dispose of them if possible or blame a serial killer."

NOTE: As I have pointed out many times in this series, this has always been one of the major problems faced by Satanic Conspiracy myth supporters: How to explain the lack of bodies? Note the novel explanation offered: Cat remains consumed by dogs. Of course Thomas allegedly moved on to dogs and other animals and this explanation doesn't cover that contingency. If there had really been burials of animals, all Thomas has to do is point out where, but she obviously hasn't thought of that.

Note how Thomas, like some other Satanic Conspiracy Myth supporters in recent months, has begun to take notice of the growing number of law enforcement officers like myself who are openly Pagan. In the past, fundamentalist Christian Satanic Conspiracy myth supporters like Thomas made vague claims that the "Satanists" had infiltrated law enforcement in order to cover up the evidence. They did so in a desperate attempt to explain the lack of evidence to support their outrageous assertions. In recent years a growing number of personnel in the emergency services have made their Pagan beliefs public, resulting in the formation of organizations like Officers of Avalon. Thomas and others of her ilk are seizing upon this as "proof" of the conspiracy that they've been alleging. The truth is exactly the opposite: Some Christian evangelists, many of them police officers, have been desperately cobbling together whatever obscure facts they can to try to justify their fears and Witch hunts.

"The next day we enticed a ten year old girl in from the street. We held her in the warehouse, and held a disgusting ritual where her still-beating heart was held aloft as an offering to Satan. That poor child suffered terribly and I can only hope God has her at peace with Him now. The spells we performed using her poor little body had added potency, weaking [sic] havoc and causing serious problems to Christians and all who opposed us. We used our connections to have her body destroyed after we had finished. We sacrificed animals, humans, anything we could get to serve our master Satan. We all grew to love the taste and sight of blood as we powered up to fight our enemies. There was no depravity we would not perform for Satan - we even raided a graveyard for bones to make a potion from in one instance! We all grew wealthy and powerful from Satan's help, though our negarious activities were not spoken of in front of pagans, the same way their "higher" rites were not spoken about to us."

NOTE: Like so many of the other alleged "survivors" that I've written about in the Witch Hunts series, Thomas claims to have participated in a murder here. You're probably wondering, as I was when I got to this point, if Thomas was going to report this murder to the police. Thomas has thought of this problem and a little later you'll see how she ducks out from under this difficulty. Note how she is claiming that all of her "coven" members were wealthy. Wouldn't someone notice all of these wealthy and powerful Satanists wreaking havoc?

"Even people who were casual aquaintances [sic] began to be affected by what I was doing - my newsagent became a rapist, my next-door neighbour killed himself. I had the opposite of Midas' touch - everything I touched became evil."

NOTE: This "evil Midas touch" is another novel twist that none of the other alleged former Satanists seem to have thought of. Notice how Thomas doesn't identify the newsagent or neighbor. Naming them would obviously allow us to corroborate her weird story.

Naturally Thomas wouldn't be writing all this if she hadn't meant to tell us how she had been "saved", and this is the point where she comes up with the details of her salvation. Thomas tells us that Satan was annoyed that the coven hadn't recruited any new people since she had joined the group. She claims that the final straw was when "Satan made a demand so high that even I could not stomach it". Thomas tells us that Satan demands another sacrifice and that this time he wants one of the coven members to be sacrificed. Thomas claims that Satan told them that "the death of a 'dark saint', his servant, earned much more power than any other except a true Christian - who were protected". This is another variation of that "Satan is already defeated" nonsense. Satan announces that Thomas's fellow coven member and friend Stargrove is the intended victim. Thomas tells us that she risked the displeasure of the coven by making alternative suggestions but in the end "Stargrove went quite happily to her fate, pleased to serve Satan, and it grieves me very much that my friend will be in hell."

So here we have another alleged murder. Thomas claims that Stargrove "was brutally sacrificed, her blood and heart eaten by the coven, her body used for potions." Thomas says that this was "too much" and that this incident "made [Thomas] worry about [herself] for the first time - Satan did not care about us, and would sacrifice any of us without a second thought." Thomas tells us that she makes a decision to leave Satanism. "As I found out later", Thomas claims, "the Christians I had attacked were praying for me. God enabled me to see what I was doing, though I did not meet Him for some time."

This all raises two issues. Firstly, will we find Thomas reporting this murder to the police later in her story? Secondly, if the (unidentified) Christians knew what was going on, why didn't they call the police? I'm going to ask you to be patient for a moment, because as I hinted earlier, Thomas gives us an excuse to cover this later.

In the next section, "Scared and Lonely", Thomas begins to give us the details of her alleged "escape". She tells us that, fearful of the power of her friends, she spends the next week hiding in her room. "I did not know God," Thomas tells us, "and had no friends outside the coven. They knew where I lived, they had powerful magic, and both they and Satan would do anything to stop me getting out with the story of paganism's horrible heart." Seems like a silly thing to do if her former coven associates were that powerful. You'd think that it would make more sense if Thomas left town. She tells us that she couldn't use her powers to protect herself as they came from Satan and Satan would be upset with her. Good point. So why didn't Satan do something to Thomas at this point? Again, why didn't Thomas go to the police? Thomas has thought of this problem with her story, as she goes on to say:

"If these people had not been in the occult I would have been in a better position. Threats from others could have been taken to the police, or I could have gone into hospital. But there were pagan police officers who would make sure nothing came of my complaints, and I could be destroyed by magic even in a hospital."

There she is trying to use Pagan cops as an excuse for her lack of evidence again. Of course she could have taken this information to a Christian cop of the sort I've described elsewhere in this series. I suppose that if she did think of that she didn't suggest it as she knows as well as I do that most Christian cops aren't fanatics, are professional and sensible, and would recognize Thomas's story for what it really is: A fabrication.

Remember how I pointed out earlier how Thomas was setting us up by telling us that she had noticed that some Christians were immune to her spells? Here is where she plays that card: She tells us that she made up her mind to find these people. She goes to a "house in West London" (without giving us any details as to the address). Here an old lady named "Mary" who she used to harass with her "Pagan" friends lets her in. Thomas tells Mary her story. Mary calls the members of her (unidentified) church together and they exorcise the demons that they believe have been implanted in Thomas by Satan. This is the first point where Thomas alleges that she had been possessed: There is no mention of this earlier in her peculiar story. Thomas admits that she has no direct recollection of this: She claims that their exorcism rendered her unconscious for hours. The church members tell her later that she had a "huge number of violent spirits inside me - the most difficult to get out being the ones implanted when I had sex with Satan." The church members allow Thomas to stay in Mary's house and follow this exorcism up with "24/7 prayer covering." Thomas tells us that she "seemed to be safe, for a time".

In the next section, "Encounter with the Saviour", Thomas continues the bizarre story of her rescue from Satanism. Mary shows Thomas the usual Bible passages and tells her the usual stuff about how Jesus can save her. Later that evening Thomas claims that she had another personal visit from Satan:

"Around 11pm I began to shake, and felt terrible pains all over my body. The good Christians in the room with me seemed to disappear and I could see Satan, in hell, telling me I belonged to him and could never leave. I was terrified but shouted to Jesus to help me, and with a bang everything returned to normal. We all gave thanks and praised the Lord for the rest of the night!"

Sounds to me like the sort of things that an admitted addict like Thomas would experience in withdrawal, but Thomas wants us to believe that it really happened. Notice how we still don't know who these church members were, so we can't ask them to corroborate Thomas's claim.

Thomas follows this brief section with "Epilogue: My Life Now", in which she supplies us with the alibis and excuses necessary to explain away the lack of corroborating evidence in her story. First Thomas tells us that she changed her "legal name" from "Greymalkin (the name I had in the coven) to Keziah, after one of the daughters of Job, given as a blessing from God." She tells us that she married a Christian and that they are active among pagans, bringing them to Christ." Then Thomas presents us with these excuses:

Thomas tells us that she "remained with that house church until it dissolved in 2002." Notice how Thomas still hasn't given us an address or other identifying information. She conveniently "dissolves" it to cover her tracks.

Remember the inverted pentagram that Thomas claimed that the devil had branded into her arm? Thomas covers her tracks here too, using a variation of the trick that Michelle Pazder used in Michelle Remembers. Michelle claimed that all of her scars were miraculously removed by the Virgin Mary. Thomas uses the miraculous to solve her problem in a similar manner. "God has blessed me in many ways," Thomas tells us, "- even down to the removal of the mark of Satan from my arm." How convenient.

Thomas claims that she "went to that warehouse where the coven used to meet with some police officers. I wanted to expose them and to have them prosecuted for their crimes. When we got there we found the warehouse had been pulled down and all traces gone. I heard one of the policemen I knew to be a pagan persuading his colleagues not to investigate further." Again, how convenient. Now you can understand why Thomas had to describe her alleged former associates as wealthy. Otherwise they would not have had the resources to do this. Of course Thomas could use this opportunity as an expose. If her new found Christian faith guarantees her invulnerability, she could safely give us the details that she gave the police. This would, of course, put pressure on the authorities to prosecute the perpetrators and deal with these "corrupt" cops. It would certainly draw the attention of the Christian cops who believe in Satanic Conspiracy theories. She doesn't, because obviously there aren't any details to present. Like the "Warlocks" and "Witch Queens" that I've written about in the Witch Hunts series, Thomas has made this all up using bits and pieces of information about Pagan practices to make the story sound more plausible. Oddly Thomas blames God for her inability to bring the suspects to justice:

"It seems that God has closed that door to me, but I know that He will give justice to the dead and the coveners with He meets them."

Thomas closes this narrative by telling us that she has made her story known "so that prospective pagans may avoid that evil, current pagans can know the nature of their religion and the hope in Christ, and to inform Christians about Satan's menace." She encourages people to write to her with their comments:

The rest of Thomas's Ex Pagan 4 Christ web site attempts to capitalize on the aforementioned story. Thomas uses it as a platform to preach about the dangers of Paganism. Thomas starts with a short section, "What the Bible Says About Paganism," which contains the usual Biblical passages condemning anything non-Biblical. Next we find the section, "Why Do People Become Pagans?" While this is listed as being "under construction", it does contain a list of "reasons" that Thomas has borrowed from the others that I've written about in this series.

For example, Thomas claims that "The first and most important motivation any pagan has is rebellion." She states:

"To follow false gods and to perform witchcraft is a profound act of rebellion against God. Many people, especially young people, enjoy rebelling against authority. God represents the ultimate authority to them, and the pagan gods seem to offer a great deal of freedom - no laws, no set beliefs, its a religion you can make up as you go along. By the time they discover that they are in a greater bondage to Satan than they ever would be to God, it may be too late. Rebellion against God's laws is also common - homosexuals, feminists and fornicators in particular find God's laws not to their liking and may be atracted [sic] to religions which do not recognise [sic] sin. It is important that we acknowledge and combat this rebellion against the conviction of sin. Others rebel against their parents' religion, against 'respectable' religion, against traditional values. This is a symptom of our society which promotes rebellion and disrespect, and can easily be countered by showing that a soul on fire for God is rebelling against the world in a truer sense than worshipping the god of this world could ever be!"

Note how Thomas uses the by now familiar claim that Pagans have no laws, no morals, and no definite religious beliefs. Note the evangelical buzz words "respectable" and "traditional values" here.

Another typical "reason" that Thomas presents us with is "the lure of the new." Thomas restates her claims that "Paganism is ever-changing, becoming whatever the practitioner wants it to be at any given moment and so, unlike a formal religion, can change with the fashion of the day." See how Thomas is again trying to convince the reader that religions like Wicca are unorganized, informal and not legally recognized. "Paganism remains forever new because it has no base to draw upon - only the practitioner themselves [sic]." This is absurd. Wicca, the other Neo-Pagan religions, and even Satanism are recognized and quite legal religions in North America. All Neo-Pagan religions are solidly based on recognized mythologies and have easily traced histories. In order to attain status as legal ministers of religion, Wiccans and other Neo-Pagans have proved that they have "standard" religious services and stable organizations. Christianity wasn't created by Jehovah: History has shown it to be "ever changing" with the "fashion of the day" and created by "the practitioners themselves".

The next "reason" that Thomas presents us with is "peer pressure". Thomas uses the tired argument that watching television shows such as Bewitched, Charmed, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, viewing films such as The Craft or reading Harry Potter books are an organized attempt on the part of Pagans to indoctrinate young people. She specifically targets a "teenager's series called 'Wicca' by Cate Tierna [sic]", which she describes as "a dangerous series". Thomas has spelled Tiernan's name incorrectly and doesn't list the titles of these novels for teens (Spellbound, Awakening and Origins). Thomas also attacks "quasi-historical books like 'Witch Child' by Celia Rees." Rees is also a writer of fiction for young adults. Besides Witch Child, Celia has written Sorceress and City of Shadows. Thomas accused Pagan authors as a whole of "[proselytizing] teenagers, producing brightly packaged books and sets for 'teen witches', despite their official insistence that the under 18s are not welcome in covens. Satan is well aware that if he can get his claws into children then he can so mould their characters as to drive them away from God in adulthood." Ever been in a Christian bookstore? You'll find that it is full of "brightly packaged books and sets for proselytizing teens". Of course proselytizing is exactly what Thomas is up to here. The reason that many Wiccan covens formerly did not admit people under the age of 18 was because (a) these teens find it difficult to defend their beliefs to their families and (b) Pagans are extremely sensitive to the numerous (unfounded) allegations that they are trying to corrupt youth. It is this sort of attack that is commonly used by modern "inquisitors" against Wiccan and Pagan groups.

Another "reason" that Thomas gives us is one that we've increasingly seen used by evangelists of her sort: "Ecological awareness". She admits that "Christianity has been sadly lax in its care for the earth, considering it to be merely something for man to do as he likes with rather than a creation of God to be tended for Him" and goes on to claim that "The delayed acknowledgement of this by Christians gave pagans the chance to implant an image of Christianity as a selfish and destructive religion which should not be true."

A related "reason" that Thomas presents is the "love of nature". She complains that Pagans direct their worship at Nature rather than at the Christian creator Jehovah. Again Thomas admits that "Christianity has often failed to acknowledge the beauty of nature, regarding it as fallen without drawing out the implication that the world before the Fall must have been even more beautiful than this!" Of course Wiccans, being monists, do not separate divinity from the mundane as many Christians do. Thus our worship of nature is at the same time a worship of the divine.

Another odd "reason" that Thomas presents to us is "love of culture". By this Thomas means that Pagans make use of "folk tales, legends and songs in their worship", as if to suggest that Christians do not. She accuses Pagans of "removing the Christian component" of these myths. She cites the Carmina Gadelica as an example of our "Christian cultural heritage". The problem with this is argument that the Carmina Gadelica and other texts like it are actually recording pre-Christian customs and myths that have become Christianized. In the case of the Carmina Gadelica, the customs and myths of Scotland. The Carmina Gadelica is a fascinating example of how ancient myths have survived by taking on a Christian patina. Oddly, Thomas also cites JRR Tolkien as a good example of a Christian author who presents British culture in his works. While Tolkien's works definitely contain elements of "British culture", you won't find Jehovah anywhere in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, though one could make an argument that the evil Sauron in this trilogy is a personification of evil much like Satan.

The final odd "reason" that Thomas presents is "love of arts and literature". She complains that people feel that "Christianity produces no art, no literature, no poetry" and takes great pains to point out that "the Bible contains a great deal of beautiful poetry - most notably in the Psalms, and wonderful writing, and that the King James Bible is world-renowned simply for its literary value." It seems that she is suggesting that none of the other translations of the Bible are literary marvels.

Thomas then presents us with a section, "What Pagans Believe", in which she catalogues many of the common objections such people have with things Pagan. She begins by making this interesting statement:

"Pagans subscribe to a vast number of different beliefs, and Christians should not assume that all pagans believe the same things. Pagans even argue among themselves about what the definition of 'pagan' is so it is hard to catalogue what they all believe."

Interesting, given that Thomas refers to Christians as a whole in this statement as if this statement did not apply to them. The reality is that Christians are divided into thousands of differing (and as we have often seen in the cases presented in this series, warring) denominations. One could replace the word "Pagan" in this statement with the word "Christian" and it would be equally true.

Thomas goes on to tell us that there are "three major types of paganism today". This is where she defines the three categories that she mentioned on the first page of her web site:

"Wicca- a formalised religion invented in the 1950s by Gerald Gardner (with input from Alister Crowley [sic] and others) following the repeal of the English anti-witchcraft laws." She points out that Gardner originally claimed Wicca to be a "pre-Christian religion handed down his family line". Gardner certainly claimed Wicca to be pre-Christian, but he never claimed his family to be a family tradition of Wicca. Thomas correctly points out that many of the ideas of Margaret Murray which Gardner incorporated into his beliefs have since been proven incorrect by modern scholars. Note how Thomas is contradicting what she told us earlier here: She claimed that her coven contacted the spirits of "long dead witches" and that these witches counseled them to commit blood sacrifices. Now she is claiming (correctly) that there wasn't a "pre-Christian religion" of Wicca until Gardner invented it. She can't have it both ways.

"Eclectic Paganism... A new form of Wicca has been developing in recent years to cater to modern tastes," Thomas claims, "This form is extremely eclectic, disregarding or changing the format of Wicca at will, bringing in new gods and generally rejecting the coven format. There is some dislike of that form of Wicca among traditional Wiccans - as exemplified by the Wiccan website Why Wiccans Suck." Thomas claims that this variant "may be the most popular form of paganism" yet the web site that she cites as an example seems to have been shut down, so it isn't possible to view it. Thomas goes on to say that most of these "eclectics are solitary". Studies by scholars such as Ronald Hutton suggest that it is true that most people practicing Wicca today are solitary practitioners. It is another thing to accept Thomas's argument that this vast group of unconnected solitary Pagans constitute a recognizable tradition or denomination.

"Reconstructionism" which Thomas claims to be "a comparatively small section of paganism" and defines as people who "claim to practise ancient religions exactly as they once were and stick strictly to one pantheon and one set of beliefs". Thomas makes the argument that "In practise this does not happen - in the case of ancient Egyptian religion, with no mummification and no king, the religion does not work" and states that "most ancient religions practised animal or humans sacrifice [sic] - but modern reconstructionists claim they do not do this". This "reconstructionism" category is not one recognized by modern Pagans. The reason that Pagans claim that they don't sacrifice animals or humans is because they don't.

Thomas concludes this section by stating that "As I can testify, magic does work when Satan wants it to, but cannot be used against Christians." You've testified to a lot of unbelievable things in your web site, Keziah.

The last part of Keziah Thomas's web site is "How to Witness to Pagans". Thomas utilizes the scare tactics common to such sites here. Her recommendations are based on that false concept of two levels of Wicca, one Satanic and one ignorant lower level which is not, that she presented elsewhere in her site. Thomas claims that:

"Many pagans may be as I was- trapped in a cycle of sin and frightened to leave... Be aware that pagans who are at the higher levels will be very much trapped by Satan. They may feel frightened to leave, they may feel that they are too evil for God or Christians to accept them, and they need to know that you are there for them. Other pagans in at this level may be aggressive, highly anti-Christian and attempt to convert you to Satanism. "

"Lower-level pagans may not know of the higher levels - they are generall [sic] introduced gradually into these sins, as I was. Let them know of the reality behind paganism,... If they have not been accepted into the higher levels yet then you have the chance to bring them to Christ before they enter such a dangerous situation."

"Be aware that pagans value autonomy more than anything else (ironic, considering who their master is) and do not appreciate being told what they should do. They pride themselves on being open-minded so point out that this means that they should listen and take thought on Christianity too."

Thomas recommends sites such as Christian Apologetics Research Ministry, and the Academy of Christian Apologetics as resources for people wanting to witness to Pagans. Thomas concludes by stating that "many pagans have enormous regard for the arts and good Christian prose, poetry or artwork may touch them deeply... Althogh [sic] many pagans are well-read and can argue against Christianity they often do not understand the gospel message." Oh, I understand your message very well, Keziah: Yours is a gospel of intolerance and of the ends justifying the means. The final words on this web page are "The battle is already won!!!" So why are you still fighting, Keziah? Your "true account" is obviously as flawed as the "true accounts" of proven frauds like Bill Schnoebelen and Michael Warnke who I debunked in earlier articles and whose ideas you have incorporated into your tales. Like Schnoebelen and others, you've taken what little you know of Wicca and woven it into a deceptive tale to scare the readers into the pews.

My recommendation would be: Don't use drugs. You may end up like Keziah Thomas.
