In this video GASH Singer Tibbie X (active CoS member) offers herself as a submissive to the assembled audience of freaks, monsters, fetishists and interlopers at New York’s Tammany Hall.

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet


Greetings to all who feel consonant with the Earth’s seasonal changes! In the Northern Hemisphere we are delighted to embrace the arrival of Fall, portending harvest bounties, briskly cool evenings and the visual blaze of turning leaves. Denizens of the Southern Hemisphere find that fecund Spring is upon them as Nature awakes and stretches forth, rousing from her frozen torpor. We who embrace life with abundant passion celebrate the majesty of our world and the myriad pleasures offered by vital existence. Here’s to a sublime new season of lavish indulgence! —Magus Peter H. Gilmore

US Air Force Drops “so help me God” Requirement in Oaths

A minor victory for American secularism was scored in the courts, but one that could set a precedent for other institutions to follow. The Locke and Milton-inspired Enlightenment values that influenced the American revolution will hopefully continue fighting for, as Thomas Jefferson coined it, “a wall of separation between church and state”. We give a horned salute to the airman whose Luciferian sense of rebellion took him to this victory. Let our schools, our legislative halls, and all publicly-owned grounds heed the Air Force’s example. Onward! —Warlock Darren Deicide

The Glamor of Grammar

When Magus LaVey said, “Satanism demands study—NOT worship,” he defined the Satanic standard that Magus Gilmore has termed “the Magic of Mastery.” The very idea of study has long been so closely associated with witchcraft that the witchy word “glamour” is derived from the same word as “grammar.” The Latin term “grammatica,” meaning learning or scholarship, often had occult implications during the Middle Ages. The same word also gives us “grimoire,” weaving a web that supports the principle of eclectic studies as the foundation of all magic. So whatever your speciality (to channel Minnie Castevet), remember the magic that dwells […]
