A former head of the [British] Armed Forces has helped to form a pressure group to warn of the satanic nature of many unidentified flying objects.
Admiral of the Fleet Lord Hill-Norton, Chief of Defence Staff, 1971-73, is involved with UFO Concern out of worry that some UFO encounters are "definitely antithetical to orthodox Christian belief", according to today's Church Times.
The Rev Paul Inglesby, a sub-deacon in an Orthodox church, who is secretary of UFO Concern, said the truth about UFOs has been suppressed for many years. He had never seen a UFO himself but knew many who had. "It is what they do and the messages that come from them that are anti-Christian, or demonic," he added.
Gordon Creighton, a Buddhist who edits Flying Saucer Review, said the group's founders were right to be concerned: "I do believe that the great bulk of these phenomena are what is called satanic."
However, David Wilkinson, a Methodist minister and an astrophysicist whose "Alone In The Universe" was published this month, told Church Times that Christians had nothing to fear from alien life forms.
Lord Hill-Norton, 82, confirmed last night that he had helped to found UFO Concern, but declined further comment.
