Church of Satan celebrates Religious Freedom Day

Religious Freedom Day

In 1992, the US Congress deemed January 16th as Religious Freedom Day in celebration of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom passed on January 16 of 1786. This act is a significant precursor of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Please follow this link to enjoy pieces done by our members in celebration of this unique holiday.

Church of Satan wishes you a Happy New Year!

HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS!

Tomorrow begins year LIV, Anno Satanas. As we’ve noted for several years, human society is in a raging turmoil of rabid tribalism, with barbarity on a perpetual rise. Individual liberty is threatened by many antagonists. We Satanists advocate for wider use of reason and forward thinking as tools to resist the trending rush towards authoritarianism, but that momentum is difficult to halt. Yet we fight our own battles in varied arenas to attain the goals our values have brought into focus. In time, society will move according to that will.  Whether circumstances might curtail the ends we seek, every moment […]

Make Merry!

Make Merry on this Superlative Solstice!

SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! The solstice is upon us and, as kin to the rest of Earth’s species, we feel at one with the cycling of the seasons on this beautiful planet that is our home. Some Satanists might feel alienated by parts of the holiday hubbub 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 they failed to supplant. Jolly round and white-bearded Santa Claus, who has come to […]

Candyboy: Nine

Candyboy: NINE

The song was inspired by The Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals. All seven deadly sins, here, are good things! Nine, the number of Ego, instead seven. As an invitation to live this life intensely in the last Age of Fire 2019, before the new Age of Ice. —Candyboy Also on Spotify

TSI: Thanks, But No Thanks by Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Thanks, But No Thanks

We’ve noted that some secularists in Nebraska have decided to combat their local Adams County Board of Supervisors’ decision to post a sign with the vapid slogan “In God We Trust” in the county courthouse by offering an alternative sign which would list our founder Anton LaVey’s text for “The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth.” Now, that initial slogan was pasted on to U.S. paper currency in 1957 and was intended as a rebuttal to what was perceived as the threat of “godless communism.” As Satanists who understand that all deities are myths, to us it is an empty […]

Hail Gluttony!

HAIL GLUTTONY!

Today in the U.S., many celebrate the secular holiday called “Thanksgiving.” It originated as a harvest festival and the traditional imagery has been inspired by legends about Calvinist separatist Pilgrims who emigrated from The Netherlands to the “New World” in 1620. These staunchly Christian folks supposedly included select nearby indigenous pagans in their festivities, now and again. Honoring the fruits of hard work done towards preparing for survival of the gelid Winter months to come in Massachusetts, it was a de facto proclamation of the wisdom of being in harmony with the cycling of Nature. Similar holidays abound in pre- […]

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

Regarding the Netflix/Sabrina Lawsuit

Recently, The Satanic Temple has filed a suit against Netflix over a depiction of the symbolic deity Baphomet in their series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. As a significant number of people seem to be confusing this with us, we would like to clarify that TST is a political activist group that has nothing to do with us, nor with the religion of Satanism which we founded over 50 years ago. The Church of Satan has not filed a suit against Netflix, nor do we have a problem with their Sabrina show, which we’ve previously discussed. Regarding the suit itself, while […]

Sinister Screen Returns

The Sinister Screen RETURNS!

The Sinister Screen was first launched in February of 2005 as a project of the now-defunct Church of Satan Special Interest Groups. Since then, it had become an independent forum for movies of general interest to Satanists and others of like-mind. The site took a long hiatus but has returned with a revamped format. Review submission requests are open to Church of Satan members only and we will verify your membership before approval. All reviews must be focused, well-written, and reasonably connected to Satanism and the Satanic philosophy. As of present, discussion privileges have been and will continue to be […]
