Group had threatened to defile communion wafer

The leader of a satanic group in Oklahoma City had threatened that he and his followers would defile a consecrated communion wafer as an offering to Satan as a carnal sacrifice at a "Black Mass" ceremony inside Oklahoma City's Civic Center Music Hall. The Archbishop of Oklahoma City has since dropped a lawsuit against the group in an attempt to stop that from happening.

Lawyers representing Archbishop Paul Coakley had earlier demanded the return of a communion wafer obtained by the group.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Lawyers representing Archbishop Paul Coakley had earlier demanded the return of a communion wafer obtained by the group.

Michael W. Caspino, a lawyer representing Archbishop Paul Coakley says that a priest collected the consecrated wafer from a representative of the group, calling it a "gigantic victory for decency and for all religions."

Adam Daniels, the head of the Satan-worshiping group said that he would return the wafer to the Catholic Church if it agreed to drop the lawsuit against him.

"Once the Catholic Church has dropped the lawsuit, they can collect it from my attorney," he said. "I don't feel like wasting thousands of dollars fighting over a cookie."

Michael W. Caspino, a lawyer representing Archbishop Paul Coakley says that a priest collected the consecrated wafer from a representative of the group, calling it a "gigantic victory for decency and for all religions."


A consecrated communion wafer carries enormous spiritual significance within the Catholic faith. According to Catholic doctrine, after the unleavened wafer of bread is consecrated at Catholic mass, it becomes the body of Jesus Christ, referred to as the consecrated host.

"If an unauthorized individual has possession of a consecrated host, it must have been procured, either by that person or by another, by illicit means: by theft, fraud, wrongful taking, or other form of misappropriation," the suit said.

"While I continue to call on all Catholics, Christians and people of good will to pray daily for cancellation of the so-called 'black mass,' I have taken a legal step to combat this blasphemous and obscene inversion of the Catholic Mass," Archbishop Coakley said in a statement.

Daniels said he had obtained the wafer in the mail from a "Catholic priest working as a Satanist in Turkey."
