QUOTES FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES ON THE PROCESSIANS:
The Process Church of the Final Judgment was an occult group
that was rumoured to be linked in some way with both the
Son of Sam cult killings in NY, 1977, as well as the Charles
Manson cult murders.
"The Process, as noted earlier, preached the alliance of
the lamb of Christ and the goat of Satan. Illustrations of
the lamb [white triangle] and goat [black
triangle] joined together [blackwhite, i.e., Seal of
Solomon] appeared in their magazines."
(Terry, page 381 [Brackets mine]) "Master black magician,
Aleister Crowley, who died in 1947, had written about the
unification of God and Satan", noted Maury Terry,
author of The Ultimate Evil, a book about the
Son of Sam
cult killings, page 218.) This process of
yoking good and evil is symbolized by Solomon's Seal, and
Crowley, a master magician of the Qabalah, no doubt understood
this. (See "The
Eschatology of Solomon's Seal".)
According to Milan Martin, The Process was not just some odd
grouping of hippies and occultists:
"I did have first hand knowledge in Vietnam, that there were
both high ranking political, and military personnel who
workded together to fly huge shipments of drugs from Vietnam
to America's military bases in cooperation with the CIA and
the National Security Council [NSC].
If this is so, then
perhaps the group was ultimately organized and orchestrated
or in some way linked by the Kosher Nostra, run at the time,
according to Michael Collins Piper, by Lansky, the Jew who
supposedly controlled the italian mafia, and who, according
to Piper's book, Final Judgement
, probably had a hand
in the assasination of JFK. JFK's decision to withdraw from
Vietnam would have cost the Jewish mafia millions annualy
in revenue from drugs shiped out of Southeast Asia. Martin:
"What most Americans to this day don't understand is that
hundreds of millions of dollars were made in this way by a
few, well-connected politicians, and high ranking military
officers, who were part of an occultic network known as the
(Milan Martin, "Lucifer's Children;
The Kingdomless Kings of the New World Order", page 16)
The Process Church of the Final Judgement was born in
London, England, in 1963-64, the brain-child of two members
of the Church of Scientology, according to Maury Terry, "The
Ultimate Evil", page 73. The founding couple were Robert
Moore and Mary Anne MacLean. They seperated from the Church
of Scientology while recieving high-level training at
London's Fitzroy Street Hubbard Institute of Scientology,
then married each other and adopted the cult name
Robert Moore DeGrimston was born in Shanghai, China, Aug 10,
1935, and became an educated man, studying at Winchester in
England and later pursuing a career in architecture at the
Regent Street Polytechnic Institute.
"One of the names that consistenty comes up in
investigations of the Manson family is The Process, but
investigator Ed Sanders, who wrote a book on the Manson
family, said, 'There were so many investigations going on
out there after the murders that I began to wonder if the
Process was a front for some intelligence operation."

magazine from January 1972 which includes the infamous
"Manson Article" written by Charly himself. Also a look at
the last issue of the "Processeans" magazine from May 1974.

The Process Church
of the Final Judgement
The Process Church is totally unrelated to "Process
Theology" which is a belief system promoted by some liberal
Protestant theologians and developed by Charles Hartshorne.
It looks upon God and the rest of the universe as being in
process, in a state of constant change.
The Process evolved out of a self-help group founded in
London, England by Robert de Grimston ("The Teacher"). To a
Processean, "The Process" means change - specifically, the
changes necessary to avoid the end of the world with its
From 1964 to 1974, Processeans were traveled throughout
Europe and North America and organized Traveling,
Administrative, and Open Chapters. Church leaders wrote
books such as "Exit", "As It Is", "For Christ Is Come", and
other titles which the Church used as its reference texts.
By mid-1974, several Chapters in the US and one in Canada
were operating, with headquarters in Washington DC Free
shops for clothing and Free Kitchens for food dispersed
donations in all of the Chapters. In the communities where
Chapters were located, Processeans took on a variety of
projects and received grants from local and state government
agencies. Mass feeding stations were established in
'skid-row' areas where Chapters were present; these operated
on a daily basis for years. Ministers and Lay-members took
part in community action programs and responded to natural
disasters alongside the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
Weekly visitations to homes for the elderly, blind, and
mentally handicapped were a regular weekly occurrence. In
some Chapters, prison ministries were set-up.
The Process welcomed all through its doors. The Church
legally ordained women as Priests. The was an equal balance
of the sexes in the ruling body and in the operational and
administration of the Church and its Chapters. It performed
wedding ceremonies, baptisms and ordinations. The Church
opposed the Vietnam War but left the decision of military
enlistment up to the individual.
A crisis occurred in 1974. Robert de Grimston gradually
removed himself from daily Church administration &
activities. Disputes arose between the ruling body of the
Church and The Teacher. This ultimately led to the dismissal
of Robert de Grimston as Chief Theologian. The ruling body
legally dissolved The Process. After unsuccessfully trying
to reorganize a group of Processeans in Massachusetts, the
Teacher returned to England.
In 1979 The Process was reformed as a loosely knit group,
under new leadership. In 1987 a vigorous expansion effort
began. Private Chapters were established in which
individuals operated programs aimed at helping the homeless
In 1988, the Society Of Processeans was formed as a largely
secular organization. In 1993, the faith and teachings of
The Process were declared obsolete, the Archives were
destroyed and the Church dissolved. Members continue,
organized as a self-help organization. The future is
The Process Church published the magazine "Process" and a
monthly newsletter "The Processeans".
Beliefs:The Church taught that Love conquers Evil, and
thereby eliminates conflict. The basis of their religion was
the book of Matthew in the Christian Scriptures (New
Testament). They believe in a single unknowable God; God
simply "is". Jesus Christ was seen as a Unifier; Satan as a
separator, perhaps created by God to test mankind. They
believe in the "Law of the Universe" which is "as you give,
so shall you receive". All matter is seen as sacred, because
it stems from God. In its earlier days, Ministers wore large
surrounding black capes to promote their "mourning the death
of the world unless we change" message.
Christ's teachings to "love your enemies" became their prime
rule of behaviour. They love the individual, but not his/her
evil deeds. These beliefs led to a love for Satan - not to
his acts but to Satan, the Being.
The Process taught a dual concept of divinity. That is, that
there are two more or less equal powers in the universe:
Christ and Satan; one all good - the other all bad. The
historic roots of this belief are traceable to the
Zoroastrians in Persia in the 6th Century BCE.
Deviating from traditional Christianity, God and Satan are
not opposite and conflicting supernatural entities. They are
both believed to contribute to the world and the rest of the
universe. Their long standing enmity has disappeared. Jesus
is pictured as the judge at the end time, while Satan
becomes the executor of Christ's judgments.
Misinformation about The Process:The Process held to a
unique theology which worshipped God while loving Satan.
Being an open and proselytizing religious organization, they
were exposed to criticism by other Christians. Having such
an unorthodox response to Satan, they were easily
A book about Charles Manson, "The Family", claimed that
Manson was a member of The Process. The Church obtained
apologies and retractions to the book after it brought about
a suit against the publisher. Because of the time it took to
bring about the retractions, a large portion of book sales
had occurred; so many of the books (without retractions) are
on shelves today. The connection between Manson and the
Process has not completely been corrected. Manson was never
a registered member of The Process. A group of Processeans
visited him in prison and confirmed that he had never been
involved in the local Chapter.
More recently, a book was published that claimed a second
mass murderer, David Berkowitz, the "Son of Sam" was also a
member of The Process. The book stated that The Process was
a network of killers and that Berkowitz was a look-out and
did not take part in all of the killings. This conflicts
with the police investigators who believed that Berkowitz
was operating on his own. If they thought otherwise, the
police certainly would have investigated the Church.
Berkowitz claimed to have been a Satanist, and to have
converted to Evangelical Christianity in prison. He claimed
that the "Sam" in "Son of Sam" came from the name of the
Celtic God of the Dead, Samhain (which he pronounced
"Sam-hane"). His story is suspect, because his pronunciation
is incorrect, the Celts never had a God of the Dead, there
is no God by the name of Samhain and because Satanists do
not worship Celtic Gods. In reality, Samhain means "end of
summer", was a Celtic seasonal day of celebration, and
remains a Wiccan Sabbat.
Rituals:Assemblies were held in a room that had a Christian
Cross on one wall and, on the opposite side of the room, a
Goat of Mendes (a goat's head in a pentagram) which
symbolizes Satan. The Process version of this symbol had the
pentagram placed upright. The Goat of Mendes was later
removed as part of Process symbolism. An round altar was in
the centre of the room, covered with a Process motif.
Candles were arranged on the altar pointing to the four
cardinal directions; this symbolized their unity with all of
creation. Frankincense was burned in the center of the altar
as a symbol of Christ being at the heart of The Process.
Members attending the ritual sat on cushions on the floor in
concentric circles around the altar. To the rear was a music
section usually with guitars, singers, sitar, piano and
drums. Because Saturday was the traditional Sabbath (Sunday
being the Christian day of rest), the main service of the
week was called the Sabbath Assembly. It was held Saturday
Evening at 7 p.m. The Christmas Assembly was held on
Christmas Eve. Weddings occurred in all Chapters. The
Process married same-sex couples in the same fashion as
opposite-sex couples (however registry's tended to differ on
the legal part of same-sex weddings). Chapters were closed
on Sundays and Christmas Day.
