VICE: Happy 50th Birthday, Church of Satan! Sam Rowe interviews Reverend Ashley S. Palmer about the philosophy and lifestyle of members of the organization founded by Anton Szandor LaVey about to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Happy Birthday Anton Szandor LaVey! On the anniversary of his birth, we celebrate the wisdom and strength of the man who founded the Church of Satan, codifying a rational, atheist philosophy that takes Satan as its inspirational icon. His insights into the human animal lead him to weave together many threads from earlier iconoclasts into that dark tapestry of ideas he called Satanism, launching a movement that continues to thrive. He lived life to the fullest, and provided us with a powerful tool so that we may do the same. As we move from victory to victory, he remains a […]

9/11 — Marking Theist Infamy This anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon by Islamic extremists fourteen years ago is a proper occasion for fellow rational, secular individuals to note the ongoing intolerance in the name of theism manifested this past year.

In January of 2015, the Paris office of the satirical atheist magazine, Charlie Hebdo, was attacked by two gunmen, killing twelve. 134 college students were massacred in Kenya by Shabbab militants in April.

The primary purpose of the Deferred Gnosis podcast is to bring together contrasting perspectives sourced directly from the fringe to deconstruct the preconceptions of our culture through the use of critical thought and passionate discourse. By relentlessly investigating the whys and wherefores most are unwilling to explore, we will grasp those fleeting eternal truths necessary to liberate us from the shackles of sedentary Belief. Although we indeed live in a mad world, we will unravel the pervasive madness by sharpening reason against the whetstone of radical thought.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s ad featuring Reagan speaking about the intrusion of religion into the US’s secular government was not accepted for broadcast by the network, though Comedy Central had already run in on two separate programs. It is clear that theists still hold plenty of power since such a major network fears offending them. The secularist point of view is unwelcome when the majority of society are a gaggle of mush-minded believers who do not tolerate skeptical opposition. As we’ve noted time and again, the struggle is on and support of the FFRF—a large group which has had […]
Why is there an “invocation” in the first place? Why are our government officials “praying” to anything during our time, paid for by our tax dollars? That’s some unconstitutional horseshit, right there. Pray on your own time, if you really think prayer guides you. If you’re on my time, your ass better be doing something more akin to law-making than sitting on your knees asking Jeebus if he thinks the intersection of Main & Park needs a flashing red light or just a stop sign. —Magister David Harris
