The Satanic origins of MS-13 (www.washingtonpost.com)

Forty years after MS-13 was founded in Los Angeles by devil-worshiping metal heads, some gang members still commit brutal crimes at the behest of “The Beast.”

What do you think?

Washington Post hits you with a pay wall to view the whole article. Any chance you can copy and paste it? I’d really like to read it.

Did people who loved Metal really have anything to do with the beginning of MS13?
It’s clear that they are under Satan’s influence, but did Metal really have anything to do with forming a gang?

My cousin is a metalhead, and like most metalheads they are not satanic, but have heard all the devil-worshipping allegations for years and as such have blocked it all out and are in denial about the very real connections inherent in the genre and industry.

“I’m not a satanist, therefore metal isn’t satanic!” A big fallacy.

This ignores, for example, the rash of church arsons in Scandinavia by black metal bands. I asked my cousin if he had ever encountered any satanists as a fan. He told me he saw a band that had cats crucified as part of their stage show. He also told me he once met a metalhead who claimed to be a satanist, but he told him, “you’re full of s**t, dude!”

People believe what they want to believe.

I think more horror movies and serial killers from what my buddy told me. And actual old school satanist who taught the og members dark magic. He is El Salvadoran, from LA. So he had to avoid that gang like the plague. His mother kept them in church because gang members don’t even walk by the door. I accidentally sat at one of their benches while rolling a joint years ago.

Its not just ms 13. A lot of the gangs in mexico actively call on dark forces (mostly Satan but in the end its all Satan under different names) to commit sins of murder, covetousness, greed etc. They can’t call on God of course because they know God will not listen to their evil prayers. It’s sad that they don’t think of their eternity. They have no excuse when the Gospel of Christ has been preached into their lives. Let’s pray they think about where they want to be in eternity.
