Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

Remembering Magus Anton Szandor LaVey

Today is the 92nd anniversary of the birth of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey, and we often take this day to fondly recall the transformational legacy of the founder of Satanism as a religion. He was truly a unique man, and several recent works offer insights into his thoughts and personality that you might want to peruse:

WE ARE SATANISTS: The History and Future of the Church of Satan by Magistra Blanche Barton

Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan: Infernal Wisdom from the Devil’s Den by Magister Carl Abrahamsson

Anton LaVey – Into the Devil’s Den a documentary by Magister Carl Abrahamsson

An American Satan a documentary by Adam Garriga

Of course, as a carnal religion championing prideful individualism, Satanism mandates as its highest holiday the birth anniversaries of each adherent of this challenging and liberating philosophy. And that is but one of the many gifts that Satanism offers those who dare embrace it as their guiding set of principles.

A horned salute, then, to our visionary founder on the anniversary of his birth! What canny beast, his hour come round at last, boldly set forth concepts that would move the worlds of such vital iconoclasts? Why, that would be Magus Anton Szandor LaVey!

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey! Hail Satan!
