CHURCH OF SATAN CELEBRATES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY

We of the Church of Satan have been free to offer an individualist, atheism-based, carnal alternative to the world’s spiritual doctrines for the past 50 years and expect to be able to continue welcoming fellow iconoclasts for centuries to come. Many of our members thus find it relevant to embrace today’s national holiday. There have been many instances in the past where our members have been met with hostility because of their chosen philosophy, hence supporting and celebrating our rights as provided by the U.S. government is a worthy endeavor.

Please visit our page to honor this day. You’ll find thought-provoking essays, video, images and even t-shirts and posters with the striking graphic above, designed by our own Reverend Adam Campbell! We invite you to share our joy in this American legacy of liberty!

TRISKAIDEKAPHILIACS REJOICE!

Today is the first “Friday the 13th” of 2017. As keen observers of those around us, we Satanists enjoy the consternation this number conjures amongst the superstitious.

May your day be truly splendid with an even more enriching night, dear aficionados of the outré!

The Accusation Party - AP10: This Is Political Correctness


The scourge of political correctness has infected Western culture at an alarming rate. No arena of public life is spared—academia, politics, the workplace, religion, and society as a whole, all bear this unnecessary weight. What was once a few politely expected euphemisms has turned into a methodology designed to dictate what to say, what to think, and what to do. The petulant child-king had become the enthroned lie. But the reign of language policing and social control has passed the tolerance point for many, and we’ll be discussing that along with PC’s historical roots and evolution, its appeal to the ‘60s counterculture, its slow spread through academia, and its growing rejection around the world. Opening quote read by Ashley Palmer.

The Accusation Party is your guide to the third side, representing critical thought and analysis with a complete disregard for mainstream censure. It is total free speech—no trigger warnings, no political correctness, no privilege checking, no cultural inclusiveness. Nothing is sacred. None will be spared.

Happiest of New Years!

Tomorrow begins year LII, Anno Satanas.

This past year has been extraordinary for the vibrant members who manifest the Church of Satan. With the release of significant books, stimulating podcasts, intriguing music, evocative literature, vivid art, potent performances and other acts of creative brilliance, we can readily view the reality of Satanism as it exists in this 21st Century.

Our Walpurgisnacht Conclave brought an international gathering to the Hudson Valley, celebrating the vitality of the 50 year existence of our organization. Here, inspirational presentations by productive, talented and world-shaking individuals demonstrated to their peers that the philosophy of Satanism is one that is timely, effective and eminently practical for moving the world according to their wills, their essential tool towards continually attaining deep satisfaction. They have heeded Irish poet John Anster’s freely translated lines from Goethe’s FAUST:

Seize this very minute. What you can do, or dream you can, begin it—boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!

Only engage, and then the mind grows heated—begin it, and the work will be completed!

And a fitting coda to this celebratory year came with the exhibition, performances, book and CD releases of THE DEVILS REIGN: PSYCHEDELIC BLASPHEMY, signifying the use by intrepid individuals of the ongoing energy generated by a half century of Satanism in action.

While our well-earned festivities were inwardly focussed, we diabolists are vigilant of the context we inhabit, observing the machinations of society with ardent attention. We find that W. B. Yeats prophetic verses again resonate as we survey this passing year, a time fraught with despair wrought by ongoing terrorism, economic privations, widespread irrationalism and totalitarian upsurges:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre  
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

And yet, we Satanists take this as a challenge. We understand our lives are limited and thus eminently precious to us. We do not stand idly by in witness, but move the world from the pivot-point that is the seat of our power: our own individual sovereign consciousnesses. By understanding ourselves, our strengths and weakness, and setting daunting, yet achievable, ends, the means we have at hand to effectuate our visions are in self-transformation. Our essential individual evolution incarnates our ambitions, and thus we alter our own worlds and in that process enhance those fortunate enough to be our comrades, allies and friends. Thus the course of the world-at-large may be directed by those exemplars who are not caught in the tides of herd-think, but shatter such strictures with audacious projections then wrestled into existence. I am proud of the diverse visionaries who have cast their lot as Citizens of our Infernal Empire, for your élan is energizing to myself and all who inhabit this Devil’s fane.

So, from our lair in the Haunted Hudson Valley to all of yours, High Priestess Nadramia and I offer our blessings to you admirable individuals who enkindle our excitement!

As is our tradition, we raise our glasses to our kind—Satanists, fellow secularists, advocates of the best qualities of our species—marking the dawn of a New Year of health and prosperity to be filled with a surfeit of delight:



“Here’s to champagne for our real friends, and real pain for our sham friends!”



Joy to the flesh—forever!



Shemhamforash! Hail Satan!



—Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Regarding Azealia Banks

In response to the news that Azealia Banks announced that she’s been sacrificing chickens in her practice of brujeria by posting photos on her instagram account, ignorant people are labeling this satanic.

We would like to clarify this—for the record—by pointing out that sacrifice, animal or otherwise, has no part of Satanism. Harming animals is specifically forbidden in our 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth and since Satanists deify ourselves we have no need to make offerings to fictional entities.

As always, it’s theism that sacrifices others to its ends, from animals to people who believe differently.

Les Hernandez
The Bloodfire Compendium

The collected writings of Bloodfire Magazine
Expanded second edition
Introduction by Michael K. Silva
Afterword by Peggy Nadramia

176 pages, Paperback
English language

EDITION ESOTERICK PUBLISHING proudly presents the publication of the expanded second edition of The Bloodfire Compendium by Reverend Les Hernandez.

“Les Hernandez, founder, guitarist, and lead vocalist of Honolulu’s only nationally successful punk rock band, The Quintessentials, is a Reverend in the Church of Satan and a very active and prolific individual. He was also the editor and publisher of Hawaii’s only Satanic publication, Bloodfire! Magazine. It was through Bloodfire! Magazine that Les really flexed his intellectual muscle, through essays about Satanism, his favorite author H.P. Lovecraft, and other topics that many Satanists have similar interests in. The book you are currently holding is a compendium of all of Rev. Hernandez’s writings, many of which have appeared in the pages of the now defunct Bloodfire! Magazine and Rev. Hernandez’s personal website.”

—Warlock Michael K. Silva

“When Les talked about HPL, it was evident that he’d actually read him. The influences of this master of dark fantasy weave their way in and out of Les’ poetry and music, another reason why I’ve always looked forward to the latest offering from The Quintessentials. You have to marvel at a primal connection like this, made between a long-dead, introverted writer from New England and a punk rocker from Hawaii.”

—Magistra Peggy Nadramia, High Priestess, Church of Satan

Table of content can be found on the publisher’s website www.esoterick.de
The book can be purchased through amazon.com ,
for readers from Great Britain through amazon.co.uk,
and for readers from Germany and the rest of Europe through amazon.de.

Ritual Magic in the Church of Satan—a Historical Perspective

High Priestess Peggy Nadramia details the history of Satanic ritual magic as developed by Anton LaVey and its application in the Church of Satan. Originally published in DEVIL’S DUE: ESSAYS OF THE ELITE, Dark Moon Press (2016) 

Anton LaVey had taken the practice of Satanic ritual magic from therapeutic psychodrama, developing his theories of manipulating the minds of others “through the ethers,” communing with the projection of the Self that he had determined to be Satan, at last to a form of personal magic that either bypassed the trappings of ritual, or functioned within a new environment altogether, such as his music. Regular, repetitive rituals were no different from “church,” LaVey had decided—as participants became too familiar with a routine, their focus wandered, and their emotions failed to engage. To effect change in both the practitioner and in the outside world, rituals had to be fresh, personal and not “by rote.” He never stopped believing in his formulation of magic—“Magic,“ he told one journalist, "is a way of life.”
