ABC News report is interrupted by satanic ritual

How did this end up in a news report about animal welfare ? Image Credit: ABC News
A news report in Australia was unexpectedly interrupted recently by some sort of strange satanic ceremony.
Continuity errors, editing gaffes and other mistakes are not that uncommon during news broadcasts, however a recent ABC News segment about new animal welfare legislation was unexpectedly interrupted by a clip of something so unusual that it's hard to believe that it actually happened.

The peculiar cutaway, which lasted only around two seconds, showed what looked like a satanic ceremony with a robed figure chanting "hail Satan" in front of an illuminated, upside-down cross.

The news segment then immediately switched back to the studio presenter who, after a brief pause, continued reading out the news as if nothing had happened.
A closer look at the two-second clip shows what looks like a studio with a camera on the left, a woman sitting in front of a piano keyboard and another individual dressed in some sort of gothic robes.

We can only guess as to what was going on and how this ended up in the ABC News report.

I'm surprised none of you have seen a satanic ritual before. These days, the Satanic church has fallen out of favour in exchange for The Satanic Temple, which is a lot cooler. Satanism is a secular religion for the most part, like the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The benefit is both psychological in undoing the damage that was placed upon people by Christianity, and giving like-minded individuals community. They are politically active in the US fighting for equality for religious freedom which is very important in a country trying to form a totalitarian evangelical platform. Satanis... [More]

How could they tell the difference?

I think a lot of christians call things satanic when they don't understand it.   It looked like some kind of teenagers doing a play to me.

Puritans and some modern fringe groups thought/think Christmas was/is a satanic/pagan ritual.

Right, because they think the roman holidays were pagan which means the same as satanic in some people's tiny minds.
