WE MARK THE 17TH ANNIVERSARY OF DR. LAVEY'S PASSING


Today is the 17th anniversary of the death of our founder, Magus Anton Szandor LaVey. Those who embrace the unique philosophy he created from the rich concepts of free-thought and individualism of those who came before him honor his legacy of bold iconoclasm. We who helm the organization he created are proud of the individuals who have allied themselves, for they carry that torch and blaze a future demonstrating the efficacy of Satanism to all who might take note. Hail to all of you, whose varied accomplishments do justice to the man who began it all!

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

Hail Satan!

—Magus Peter H. Gilmore

DEFERRED GNOSIS PODCAST

image

The primary purpose of the Deferred Gnosis podcast is to bring together contrasting perspectives sourced directly from the fringe to deconstruct the preconceptions of our culture through the use of critical thought and passionate discourse. By relentlessly investigating the whys and wherefores most are unwilling to explore, we will grasp those fleeting eternal truths necessary to liberate us from the shackles of sedentary Belief. Although we indeed live in a mad world, we will unravel the pervasive madness by sharpening reason against the whetstone of radical thought.

Deferred Gnosis is a monthly podcast, the primary format of which is topic-driven discussion, with the occasional guest to weigh in on particular subjects. On every installment, we will devote a segment of the show to showcase underground music and art – the darker, the better.

Welcome to the Deferred Gnosis podcast…

This is not punditry – this is philosophizing with a hammer.
Episode 1: Secular Transcendence and the (un)Holy Spiritual Experience
On this 1st episode of Deferred Gnosis we discuss the Spiritual/Transcendent experience -
  • Meet the hosts: Shea Bilé & Matt Johnson
  • What is a Spiritual Experience/Transcendent Experience? What do they mean to an atheist? What do they mean to a Satanist?
  • Does atheism have room for spirituality? Does Satanism?
  • Is there a spiritual world? The necessity for evidence.
  • The fallacies of religious mythology – is there a silver lining? Is there a place for religion in an enlightened world? For spirituality?
  • We draw a line in the sand…

SEXBOT: THE FUTURE OF ARTIFICIAL HUMAN COMPANIONS?

image
Novelist Patrick Quinlan explores a future wherein high end “sexbots” can fulfill lustful desires, but also serve as vessels for human consciousness to survive death. We suspect that Anton LaVey would be pleased to see the continued vitality of his theories regarding the fast-approaching viability of artificial human companions. Here’s an intriguing review.

DARREN DEICIDE: SWING DANCING AND POLITICAL COMMENTARY

image

I’ll be teaching a swing dance lesson with the lovely Ethel at Roxy

and Dukes Roadhouse in Dunellen, NJ on November 2nd. We’re going to turn up the juice on this lesson, so it won’t be for the complete beginner.  We’re expecting participants to already have a little bit of experience with swing dancing. The information is above.

Also, the latest Agent Provocateur is out! I tackle the issue of terrorism, in particular, how to stop it.  The solutions were surprisingly simple.

VANDALISM OF OKLAHOMA TEN COMMANDMENTS MONUMENT



The Church of Satan does not condone vandalism of any sort. Our policy for dealing with others is to have a rational and equitable social contract, so we champion a law and order approach wherein criminals are punished in a manner that fits in kind and degree the crimes committed. The registration statement that all of our members sign states, “I recognize that failure to practice the principles of the Church of Satan and/or engaging in illegal activity may result in termination of this membership.” Thus, a Church of Satan member committing such a crime would be expelled.
The position of the Church of Satan has always been “live and let live” concerning other belief systems—so long as they are not attempting to force themselves upon us. If we consider that such a situation is occurring, we use existing legal channels to deal with it. We are secularists and individualists, so our organization does not perform acts of political activism, as each member’s political views are his or her own affair. Our members who feel that religious monuments in public spaces are inappropriate support and participate in secularist organizations which have the ability to deal with their removal via legal and legislative means. Our literature has stated these views for decades.
There are people claiming to be Satanists who do not fit our definition of the term and so it is crucial for anyone examining this situation to ascertain what such people believe, as it is may be incongruous with the philosophy and policies of the Church of Satan.
Vandalism of the Oklahoma monument is not an act that we endorse.
—Magus Peter H. Gilmore

DISINFO: HAIL SATAN YOUR OWN WAY



Brian Whitney explores the variety of music made by Satanists:

Satanists are nonconformists. We all know that. So when most of us think “Satanic music,” we think of Satanic death metal. However, there are quite a few musicians that Hail Satan in a different way.

Satanism is based on individualism, epicureanism, and an “eye for an eye” morality. So it just stands to reason that a lot of Satanic bands don’t follow the leader when it comes to what it means to play music influenced by Satan.

Killer Heels

At the Brooklyn Museum in New York, a special exhibition is celebrating the art of the high-heeled shoe. “Killer Heels” reminds me of Magus Anton Szandor LaVey’s essay, “The Witch’s Shoe as Weaponry,” in which he suggests methods for utilizing this icon of feminine power as an actual weapon of self-defense. LaVey also details the aesthetic magic of high heels in The Satanic Witch. “Killer Heels,” open until February 15, 2015, is surely a worthwhile pilgrimage for witches and any other, ahem, enthusiasts.
