Satanist Offers Twisted Tales about How He Got the Consecrated HostKate O’Hare did an interesting interview with the attorney who handled the consecrated Host case for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. My favorite part:
Adam Daniels has claimed various things about how he obtained the Consecrated Host, which is kept under lock and key until distributed to a Catholic for communion by a priest, deacon, or authorized lay person.
At first, Daniels said he got it from a “friend” in the mail.
In a phone interview with Catholic Website Aleteia on August 20, Daniels said, “One of my priests in a foreign country is also a Catholic priest, and he is the one who consecrated it himself and mailed it to me, and I’m not going to reveal what country he’s from.”
But an August 21 post at The Wall Street Journal‘s Law Blog quotes Daniels – an Oklahoma City area resident and a registered sex offender – as saying the wafer came from a “Catholic priest working as a Satanist in Turkey.”
Also on August 21, an article at The Oklahoman newspaper’s website, reported, “Daniels said he got the consecrated wafer in the last four or five weeks. He said it was sent to him by a woman who served as the ‘flesh altar’ for a Catholic priest in Turkey who secretly worshiped Satan and who recently was killed by Muslims for his Satanic beliefs.”
Said Caspino, “And if he kept going with this story, Martians would get involved with it, and Disney characters and everything else. It’s just some crazy story he came up with. I lend zero credence to the claim. Zero.”Source: Rebecca Hamilton, Patheos, August 25, 2014.
