First an artistic, devil-inspired barista took demonic to a whole new level with one lady’s latte—crafting a satanic symbol in a Catholic woman’s Starbucks drink. Now, a burger chain symbolized by its golden arches is making headlines for something nearly as sinister: a golden swastika depicted in butter on a chicken sandwich bun she bought from a McDonald’s drive-thru in Morehead City, North Carolina. McDonald’s fired the employee involved in the incident, but what does this incident—and the occult symbols in the Starbucks latte some months ago—really say? What’s going on in the spiritual realm? Clearly, it’s one more manifestation of Satan’s subtle—and increasingly not-so-subtle—works in a sinful world.
The pentagram and the 666 in the Starbucks lattes were easy enough to discern as demonic in nature, but the swastika is more than just offensive to Jews or anyone who fought against the Nazis in World War II. It’s also rooted in false gods.
It doesn’t take a prophet, either, to see that satanism is on the rise; their moves are all over mainstream media. Satanists are using the Hobby Lobby decision to play devil’s advocate, ABC reports, while a Houston teen is being tried as an adult in a girl’s satanic ritual killing. Satanic rituals are being performed in a so-called Black Mass in the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. Meanwhile, a Satanist gallery recently brought Charles Manson to Chinatown.
