Welcome to the official Church of Satan News Feed. This news feed contains important announcements and links concerning the Church of Satan and its membership worldwide.

 

We’ve taken the Facebook plunge!

The Church of Satan has finally established an official presence on Facebook. There are pages previously published on that service purporting to represent us. None are sanctioned nor are they in any way connected to our organization. They do not represent the Church of Satan and the philosophy conceived by Anton Szandor LaVey. Now there is one page run by officials of our organization which will properly present the philosophy we hold dear. Don’t be fooled by many frauds and imitators, regardless of the nature of their intentions. Satanism operates in the real world, and our organization exists to disseminate the […]

Hodgman promotes THAT IS ALL

Humorist John Hodgman – now sporting a splendid moustache – was promoting his latest book THAT IS ALL on the Craig Ferguson show. We think you’ll enjoy how the Church of Satan is mentioned in this clip.

Hail Hitchens!

Christopher Hitchens was a tart-tongued speaker and perceptive journalist whose secular classic GOD IS NOT GREAT will stand as inspiration for generations of faith-free people. He lived fully and thought deeply — an exemplar for fellow individualists. He will be remembered.

kevinislaughter: In his lecture The Great Satan, Satanic priest Kevin I. Slaughter discussed his love of iconoclasm. “If I were Jewish, I’d occasionally wear a t-shirt with the words Christ Killer on it.” He then designed the shirt, and ASP Apparel is making them. And even though he’s stillnot Jewish, he’ll occasionally wear it. The first collaboration between Underworld Amusements and ASP Apparel has arrived. Produced in the United Kingdom and shipped worldwide. Hoodies and long-sleeved variants available as well. ‘Tis the reason for the season, so let ‘em know you’d do it all over again.

In Admiration of Ken Russell

Ken Russell will long be remembered as a film director who was highly skilled in putting his various passions on the screen. He employed extreme and vivid imagery energized by surreal juxtapositions. Classical music was an obsession for him and his bio-pics of composers ranged from the paroxysmic (THE MUSIC LOVERS – Tchaikovsky, LISZTOMANIA – Liszt and Wagner) to the profound (SONG OF SUMMER – Delius, MAHLER). He never flinched from depicting eroticism and sexuality and his adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s WOMEN IN LOVE may be his finest exploration of that topic. Those who enjoy classic horror fiction will […]

Hail Gluttony!

Today, here in the U.S., is the secular holiday called “Thanksgiving” which originated as a harvest festival amongst Christian pilgrims who came to the “New World.” As such, it was a celebration of the hard work done towards preparing for survival of the frigid Winter months to come, demonstrating a harmony with the cycling of Nature. Similar holidays existed in pre-Christian societies and always were meant as opportunities for earned excess. In practice, it has evolved over time into an occasion for gathering with family and overeating at a feast. Being Satanists, we naturally support this indulgent banquet, and may […]

Farewell, John Neville, and Good Night

John Neville was an actor whose presence graced many theaters and enhanced the small and large screens with class and magic. His essential portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in A STUDY IN TERROR was enhanced when I saw him perform as Holmes live on Broadway. But, Neville’s truly Satanic Baron Munchausen will remain his entry into the Olympus of inimitable characterizations. Hail to thee, master thespian! Magus Peter H. Gilmore
