In 1992, the US Congress deemed January 16th as Religious Freedom Day in celebration of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom passed on January 16 of 1786. This act is a significant precursor of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Tomorrow begins year LIV, Anno Satanas. As we’ve noted for several years, human society is in a raging turmoil of rabid tribalism, with barbarity on a perpetual rise. Individual liberty is threatened by many antagonists. We Satanists advocate for wider use of reason and forward thinking as tools to resist the trending rush towards authoritarianism, but that momentum is difficult to halt. Yet we fight our own battles in varied arenas to attain the goals our values have brought into focus. In time, society will move according to that will. Whether circumstances might curtail the ends we seek, every moment […]

Available now, a new expanded edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon by L.A. Rollins. Purchase from Amazon, Nine-Banded Books or Underworld Amusements. Inspired by Ambrose Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary, Louis Andrew Rollins first unsheathed his lexicographer’s lance in the pages of marginal political periodicals during the mid-1980s. At a time when Objectivist orthodoxy and Cold War political theater dominated libertarian discourse, Rollins’ distinctive brand of irreverent irony stood out. He skewered shibboleths and dethroned dogmas from all quarters, and his trenchant jeu de mots made a lasting impression in the minds of many readers. In 1987, Loompanics Unlimited released the first edition of Lucifer’s Lexicon, […]
SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! The solstice 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 beautiful planet that is our home. Some Satanists might feel alienated by parts of the holiday hubbub promoting Christianity, yet heathen trappings have long been the dominant décor. It is fact that the Christians lifted this holiday from the pagans, as Pope Julius I in the mid 300s inserted their pallid, mythical savior into prior earthy traditions which they failed to supplant. Jolly round and white-bearded Santa Claus, who has come to […]
Prometheus is pleased to announce this release of his unconventional little hip-chop/death rap project Der Torso. The brand-new track Stück-Werk is inspired by the dark myths surrounding Winter Solstice and the Krampus. In der Schwärze der Krampusnacht schlägt der Torso machtvoll zurück und verkündet seine dunkle und angseinflößende Interpretation der unter der Oberfläche schlummernden unheilvollen Legenden, die die Wintersonnenwende und die Figur des Krampus umranken. Stück-Werk steht stellvertretend für den vom Torso geprägten pechschwarzen Hip-Chop/Death Rap. Der Torso on cdbaby
