Who is to blame for the negativity regarding pentagrams?  A pentagram is always seen as a sign of devil worship!! Why is this?

 

Thanks ~

EXACTLY F M!!
Spirit, its not ALWAYS seen that way. I think a fear of Satanic ritual abuse came about sometime in the 80's and the media just kinda ran with it....please someone correct me if I'm wrong. The most recent movie I can think of that showed the pentagram in a favorable and accurate light was The Divinci Code.

Wikipedia (Yeah, I know!!!) actually has a fairly decent entry on Pentagrams.

<Link>

It has an overview of the history and mathematical significance of the pentagram as well as current and past religious associations.

As for who's to blame - ignorance is to blame.
