SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! The winter solstice is again upon we denizens of the Northern Hemisphere, and many feel at one with the cycling of the seasons on our beautiful home world. Some Satanists might feel alienated by aspects of the holiday hubbub, particularly those 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 he failed to supplant.

On this 249th anniversary of the birth of one of our greatest composers, you might want to take a listen to his revolutionary 9th Symphony, which has challenged, haunted and inspired many composers who followed. This performance by Anima Eterna Brugge and the Collgium Vocale Gent, directed by Korneel Bernolet, is with an ensemble that is somewhat like what listeners of Beethoven’s time might have heard—sadly, Ludvig was completely deaf when he wrote and then later conducted this work’s premiere, so these glorious sounds only lived in his mind’s ears. But you, dear listener, can feast upon this mighty music. […]

From Union of Egoists: The only book written by Adele Mary “Bio” Terrill DeCasseres, wife of Benjamin DeCasseres. Bio was the granddaughter of Stephen Mack Jr. (a fur trader known as “the first white settler in Illinois”) and an Indian Princess named Hononegah. Benjamin DeCasseres, in his introduction, says that “the literal doctrine of the virginal birth is a defamation of woman. It is a defamation of life. It is a defamation of sex-love.
