Official Statement Regarding Comet Ping Pong Shooting

image

We are disappointed but not surprised by the news of this weekend’s shooting at DC’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant. Satanists are all too familiar with the viciousness of humanity, so much so that it’s codified in point 7 of the Nine Satanic Statements, which were published in 1969 — which we can now unfortunately refer to as pre-post-fact era. From The Satanic Panic to rampant terrorism, we well know how dangerous people can be when guided by fairy tales and superstition. Fake news and outright lies spread via social media now also may beget mayhem.

We condemn this ignorance-inspired violence, and continue to advocate that reason employed towards the vigorous uncovering and examination of facts must be the standard for knowledge. Rash reactions based on falsehoods lead not only to injustice, but can possibly be fatal.

USA Today’s News-Press:  Satanic High Priest, Snowbird Talk About Fort Myers Art Show

“There’s something guaranteed to offend everybody in this show,” says a grinning Peter H. Gilmore, high priest of the Church of Satan and a part-time Fort Myers resident. “That’s the idea. You have to shake yourself up, too.

“If you have sacred cows of any sort, we’re going to butcher and roast them.”

Howl Gallery debuted the first “The Devils Reign” exhibit last year and then took it on tour to New York and Massachusetts. It was the first art exhibit by the national atheist organization The Church of Satan.

Now “The Devils Reign” returns to Howl Gallery this weekend with a new psychedelic theme but the same goal of questioning religion, popular culture and other perceived symbols of conformity and anti-individualism. Gilmore co-curated the show with Howl Gallery’s Andy Howl.

One Satanic Panic was Enough—Debunking Ted Gunderson and #Pizzagate 

If you want to look really stupid, just try linking Satanism to this #pizzagate nonsense.

This old video of Ted Gunderson has resurfaced and people who live in a “post-fact” world are passing it on as some kind of smoking gun. Luckily for the non-brain dead among us this has been well documented as a load of crap. Ted Gunderson of course, was a total tinfoil hat lunatic and embarrassment to the FBI, whom the SPLC described as someone who “never met a conspiracy theory he didn’t believe.

In the video circulating, Gunderson talks of links between the Illuminati, pedophilia and Satanism. This is as based in reality as his belief that aliens flew UFO’s to earth to give US Government the cure to Down Syndrome but the government is withholding it from people as a form of population control. If only that was a joke—it’s not.

Let’s run down the list:

Illuminati? No. The only documented Illuminati that has ever existed, ceased to do so in the late 1700’s.

Pedophilia? No. Not only is harming children specifically forbidden in our 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth, but also, while Satanism has always explicitly condoned all forms of sexual expression, it has always been only to those interactions between consenting adults. When it comes to pedophilia, the Roman Catholic Church has spent vast sums of money protecting pedophile priests and made continued long-term efforts covering up their crimes while allowing continued abuse of children under their supervision. The Christians must own that one and this continued deflection is as transparent as their holy water—and just as useless.

As to Gunderson’s overall schtick, that’s been debunked repeatedly. Here’s the full FBI files from the investigations into all of Gunderson’s abuse and kidnapping claims showing they were completely baseless and not a single victim could ever be identified. Shock TV host Geraldo Rivera, who trumpeted much of this madness, even later recanted and apologized for helping it, noting that it was all obviously fabricated and that he was terribly wrong.

That was in 1995. So, if today—more than 20 years later—you believe and parrot any of these fallacies you are broadcasting to the world that you are not only a simpleton, but a gullible idiot as well.

Reverend Joel Ethan

HAIL GLUTTONY! Today in the U.S. many celebrate the secular...



HAIL GLUTTONY! 

Today in the U.S. many celebrate the secular holiday called “Thanksgiving.” It originated as a harvest festival amongst the Christian pilgrims in the “New World,” who at times even included select indigenous pagans in the proceedings. Honoring the fruits of hard work done towards preparing for survival of the frigid Winter months to come, it was a de facto proclamation of the wisdom of being in harmony with the cycling of Nature. Similar holidays abound in pre- and non-Christian societies, always enjoyed as opportunities for earned excess.

In practice, it has evolved over time into an occasion for gathering with family and friends and extravagant feasting. Being Satanists, we naturally support participation in a sumptuous banquet, however, we are guided by our principle of “indulgence, not compulsion.” This is a day we might spend with those whom we do not often encounter in person during the course of a year. We may thus savor the opportunity to enjoy renewed fellowship or to deal out our own form of justice, perhaps gently tweaking those who irk us while warmly embracing the ones who add richness to our lives.

We Satanists may seize this day to celebrate our prosperity, our joy in existing, and our precious liberty. We can thank ourselves for boldly mastering our lives to the best of our abilities, sharing our vital existence with those whom we cherish. Whether you are with friends, family, or enjoying your own splendid company, may those of you who choose to celebrate enjoy a truly indulgent “Gluttony Day”!

—Magus Peter H. Gilmore
