SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE!

image

The solstice tide is upon us and, as kin to the rest of Earth’s species, we feel at one with the cycling of the seasons on this gloriously beautiful planet that is our home. Thus, celebration of that turning wheel comes naturally to us.

Some Satanists might feel alienated by parts of the holiday hubbub promoting Christianity, yet obviously heathen trappings have long been the dominant décor. Recall that the Christians lifted this holiday from the pagans, pasting their pallid savior over more robust traditions which have never been vanquished. Jolly Santa Claus, who has come to signify wish fulfillment, is a combination of Dionysos and Silenus from Greek myths. And let us not forget that the ever-carnal Romans celebrated the orgiastic Saturnalia at this time of year.

In practice, the Nazarene has little place in most of the general public’s celebrations of this season—and we like it that way. Who wants to think of that mangy manger-baby on the way to his zombie destiny when it is far more delightful to simply celebrate the wonders of Nature with friends and family? Festive gatherings with sumptuous food and drink have historically been employed in the Northern Hemisphere at this time of year to mark the now lengthening days. The Winter’s chill is understood to be transitory, with the fecund Spring to come—certainly a proper reason to offer “Joy to all!”

I join with all who would revel in marking the Yule holiday season by enjoying the fullness of our lives in the company of people whom we cherish. We will often be the only ones who know the origins of these widely-embraced festal traditions. It might surprise some to know that many Satanists have decorated trees with blazing lights and ornaments that range from the diabolical to icons of all they consider to be fun. That Germanic devil Krampus has also charmed many of us—his purpose to mete out justice is one we consider fundamental—so his imagery has been embraced with gusto.

In the holiday spirit of presenting gifts to those who have enriched our lives, I’m offering PDF file downloads of my own pieces of fiction. People who’ve admired my philosophical writings have asked whether fiction has been one of my indulgences, and so now they can see my dabblings with an older piece as well as a newer one for your reading pleasure. More will be uploaded in time.

By the way, the above image by master cartoonist Josh Latta (commissioned by M.C.C.—many thanks!) depicts myself and my wife, Magistra Peggy Nadramia, as Mr. & Mrs. Satan Claus, based on an incident I recounted to Helle Magazine in their article “POGONOPHILIA.” Our Chow Chow, Contessa Bella Lugosi, plays her part as a stand-in for the legendary Rudolf, the ninth reindeer.

So, from our happy lair in the haunted Hudson Valley, we offer a “Superlative Solstice” to all Satanists and fellow secularists around the globe for a time filled with joy in abundance!

Rise From The Ashes Of Cowardice

Rise From The Ashes Of Cowardice:

Let this be a wake up call to EVERYONE trying to make it in the entertainment business. There has never been a better time to step up and take what is ours. Fuck networks, fuck studios, fuck polite society. They will not stand by your vision, because your vision is dangerous! Create your vision, and release it yourself. Networks & studios have just rendered themselves irrelevant with their cowardice. Fuck them. You don’t need them, their money, or their promotional machine. You can do it on your own if you want to. It’s not easy. Nothing that’s this worth it ever is. Just shut up, grab a camera, a notepad, a sketchpad, a microphone, or a musical instrument, and be fucking dangerous with it! The time is NOW! Do not wait. Do not do it tomorrow. Do it NOW!  Be dangerous!

Be a good Christian, Hate the Gays

Be a good Christian, Hate the Gays:

What irks me about these kinds of stories is that people at large deny that these “hate mongers” are absolutely correct. Their faith does say that we are filthy and we will burn in Hell for all of eternity. The revisionists who claim that Christianity is strictly about love seem to forget that they are ordered to be witnesses and spread the Gospel in order to show their love for their neighbor. I like the way Fred Phelps put it “I can’t say that I love my neighbor without telling them that they are sinning, making God angry, and going to Hell.”

He is absolutely correct. Don’t apologize for practicing your faith, just face up to the consequences of its positions.

Lead Us Not Into Temptation, My Retail Savior

Lead Us Not Into Temptation, My Retail Savior:

Perhaps, before the powers that be at Target tackle the task of protecting their customers from the virtual horrors of digital sin and vice portrayed in the new Grand Theft Auto game, they could tackle the task of protecting their customers from the very real horror of having your credit card number stolen after you shopped at Target?

But hey… they’re helping, right?

"BRAVO!" TO A SENSIBLE RABBI

Rabbi Jason Miller quite aptly points out the pitfalls of Michigan’s pending “Religious Freedom and Restoration Act” which would serve as a license for legalized bigotry. When I discussed the US Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby in my essay “Mask Slippage,” I stated “Let this revealing behavior that has emerged since the SCOTUS decision be a clear warning to secular people that many religions are simply biding their time until the opportunities arise to recapture their dominance over those who are not of their ilk.” It seems “biding time” is ending.

This emerging trend is also ringing alarm bells for an intelligent spokesperson from a faith that has endured centuries of vicious persecution at the hands of Christians, only more recently supplanted by fascist ideologies. We secularists—who stand in opposition to theists’ exercising their tendencies to discriminate against those not sharing their beliefs—thus might find allies in aware members of religions that have been subject to such intolerance—especially when it has historically been carried out legally under the auspices of governmental bodies endorsing such grotesque inequities. From The Inquisition to The Holocaust, this is not new behavior.

While the Michigan bill does not allow any particular religion hegemony, the past has shown that when such legal channels exist often one form of belief dominates others. In the meantime, allowing for state-sanctioned inequity provides opportunity for further abuses that all who favor justice should find reprehensible.
