Man Sets Up His Own 'Devil Church' in Oklahoma City
THE leader of one of America’s most prominent devil-worshipping churches says he turned to Satan to help him cope with the guilt of killing a man in self-defence. Adam Daniels, 35, is the “dastur” - or high priest - of the Church of Ahriman, which is based in Oklahoma City, USA. The Church of Ahriman has 15 members and worships Ahriman, another name for the original Persian devil figure Angra Mainyu - the God of Hell. The church’s followers meet in Daniels' home, where he has converted a storage room into the ritual chamber in which he performs ceremonies including devil worshipping weddings and Satanic exorcisms. However, Daniels’ beliefs were not always so fiery - before turning to the devil he was actually a Buddhist.
