What is the origin of this (slightly NSFW) fascinating list of "doorways to demonic possession
," including, along with classic "occult" practices, drug use, and popular films with supernatural themes, such interesting additions as postmodernism and cyberpunk culture?

I encountered this list yesterday via Facebook, where it circulated around various networks of mine with memetic speed. It begins, "Beloved, do not take part in any of these components of Satan's Spiritual Structure," and goes on to list as gateway practices and phenomena: "Eastern religions, yoga, Freemasonry, Illuminati groups, New Age religions, Church of Satan, Scientology, Rosicruscianism, Astrology, Tarot cards, Ouija boards, Remote viewing, Palmistry, Voodoo, Earth Worship, Wicca, Cyberpunk culture, Divination, Meditation, Vegetariansim, Lycanthropy, Postmodernism, Backmasking, Astral-projection, Necromancy, Rebirthing, Kabbalah, LOTR, Fire walking, Levitation, alt 'comix,' Vampirism, Trilateralism, Marihuana & Pot parties, LSD/shrooms, Video games, Harry Potter, Dungeons & Dragons, Halloween, Fornication, Skull & Bones, Rock music, Heavy metal, Burning man, Twilight films, Raves & XTC, [and] Goth culture."
I'm interested in knowing both the specific origin of the clipping linked, so that I might cite it, and thoughts on the social position of the author.
