AT THE BUCKLAND MUSEUM OF WITCHCRAFT & MAGICK
The 1980's-90's were a time of widespread morality policing spearheaded by evangelicals and their fictional memoirs of surviving satanic sex cults: policing everything from Rock 'n Roll to role playing games. No one was safe, Rainbow Bright sported pentagrams on her face, He-Man, Masters of the Universe was endorsing Pagan practices, the ThunderCats were inspired by “heathen gods,” and the Smurfs were “depictive of dead creatures” because of their blue skin with black lips. Even diapers weren’t safe. In 1985, Procter & Gamble found itself in the unusual position of having to hold a press conference to deny that they were funding a Satanic church. Since 1982, the company had been the target of anonymous accusations claiming their logo—a man in the moon surrounded by 13 stars—was secretly the mark of the devil.
