Be Very Afraid Satanism is a confusing muddle. There are theistic Satanists and then there are atheistic Satanists. People who worship Satan and at the same time say they are atheists are the most confused. Satan was a supernatural entity, just as God is a supernatural Person. Therefore, you can’t be an atheist and worship Satan. Anton LaVey published the Satanic Bible in 1969 and, according to Dice, it doesn’t “compare in any way to more sophisticated and esoteric satanic philosophy.” It tells the reader to do whatever he wants, no matter the affect on others. And not to worry about social and moral codes. The atheists who claim to be Satanists say they just want to rebel and challenge authority. But theistic Satanists worship Satan as a supernatural entity, like a god, or Lucifer. Oddly, LaVey was a Satanist who was also an atheist, which is a contradiction in terms. But he believed in his own supernatural powers, placing curses on people and praying for a sick child. Why would a Satanist deny the supernatural power of Satan? It doesn’t make sense. As noted before, Satan no longer exists, but Satanists don’t know that. LaVey also established the Church of Satan in San Francisco. This church carried on parties, lectures and satanic rituals. LaVey died in 1997, leaving 2 daughters who are Satanists and a wife who wrote his biography. The current High Priest, Peter H. Gilmore, described the Church as follows: “The organization is a cabal, a shadowy underground network of like-minded individuals who work to lever against the inertia of the world toward ends favorable to Satanism. Dr. LaVey used Orwell’s 1984 as a model for a cell system in which each member didn’t have awareness of exactly who else might be involved.” In the Church of Satan everyone can be their own god, needn’t worry about sin, and can live by their own rules. Satan is a symbol rather than an actual god. Unlike the Freemasons or the Illuminati, the Church of Satan recruits from the “misfits” of society. It had around 10,000 members in the 70s. It is not tax-exempt. Aleister Crowley is a whole other ball of wax-he’s the real thing. He published a book in 1909 titled The Book of the Law. He claimed that, while he was in Egypt with his wife, a demon dictated the book by taking possession of said wife. He claims he did not write the book. The philosophy “Do what thou wilt” comes from this book: don’t worry about how your actions impact others, you are the only one who matters. The Book of the Law is used at meetings of the satanic secret society Order of Oriental Templars (O.T.O.), which continues to exist today. Dice says that when one reads the defenders of LaVey and Crowley, they are full of blatant lies, because their writings are disgusting and full of violence. “The Book of the Law” reads: “Compassion is the vice of kings-stamp down the wretched & the weak-this is the law of the strong…” Later: “Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with swords & with spears…Let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat! Sacrifice cattle, little and big- after a child.” It continues: “Mercy let be off-damn them who pity! kill and torture! spare not; be upon them. The Best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of a child…” Then: “blasphemy against all gods of men. Curse them! Curse them! With my Hawk’s head I pick at the eyes of Jesus as he hangs upon the cross.” Crowley’s 1929 book Magick: In Theory and Practice, gives instructions for bloody black magic rituals. He wrote: “But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best…For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.” Dice says Crowley was a “degenerate bisexual heroin addict and enjoyed participating in the most horrific and disgusting practices imaginable.”
