* OTO TRIES TO USE HATE CRIMES LAWS TO SILENCE FREE SPEACH:
'Cult' fights claims of child sacrifice
November 22, 2006
accused an occult religious group of hosting parties at
which naked children acted as waiters and at which members
had sex with and murdered children, a tribunal was told
The obscure group Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) claims Dr Reina
Michaelson and the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program
described it in a website article as a satanic cult that
sacrificed children and ate their organs and blood. It has
complained under Victoria's religious hatred law that Dr
Michaelson and her organisation vilified OTO members,
causing revulsion, ridicule, hatred and contempt.
According to OTO's statement of complaint, Dr Michaelson
said it was not a religion but a child pornography and
pedophile ring, that its members practised trauma-based mind
control, sexual abuse and satanic rituals to discourage its
victims from complaining to the authorities, and that it
condoned kidnapping street children and babies and children
from orphanages for sex and sacrifice in religious rituals.
The case began at the Victorian Civil and Administrative
Tribunal yesterday, but was adjourned to today to allow a
last-ditch attempt to settle out of court.
The article, still accessible on a website run from NSW,
suggests senior politicians and television celebrities are
part of a top-level pedophile ring and have been protected
by some police. It says some members of the ring pretended
to support Dr Michaelson's campaign and became board members
of her group to subvert it from within. Adam Paszkowski, for
Dr Michaelson, who was named Young Australian of the Year in
1997 for founding the Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program,
said the article was published on the website "without her
knowledge or consent or authority".
Dr Michaelson last year called for a royal commission to
investigate her claims that Victoria Police did not properly
investigate pedophile ring allegations. Earlier complaints
led to a report by the police ombudsman in 2004 that was
highly critical of two senior detectives.
