Church of Satan Celebrates Juneteenth!

Recently adopted as an American national holiday, the Church of Satan celebrates independence, sovereignty, and emancipation from imposed servitude on this Juneteenth, 2021. Our unique banner design for this holiday includes 19 vertices between the two stars, to mark the date, while the central star is inverted to symbolize our carnal philosophy, which has always championed liberty and individualism. To Self-Determination—Hail Freedom! Florence Beatrice Price‘s Symphony No. 1 in E Minor (completed in 1932) was the first symphonic orchestral composition by an African-American female composer to be played by a prominent orchestra—the Chicago Symphony Orchestra—in 1933. The piece was awarded […]

Reign in Hell: A Memorial Day Tribute to our Fallen Comrades

Today, we honor the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price in the defense of liberty. Through their willingness to lay down their lives, they insured that the values of freedom, justice and self-determination will live on. The sacrifice these individuals made, has earned them a place of respect and admiration in the hearts and minds of those they left behind. With that sentiment in mind, the Infernal Legion has collected some creative works from within their ranks, which shed a unique light on how veterans view this solemn day. Join these wicked warriors as they raise a […]

INDEPENDENCE DAY Today in the USA we mark the “birthday” of what our founders intended to be a secular republic. Americans popularly use this day, or the nearby weekend, as a means to enjoy a summer holiday with convivial gatherings, barbecues, and evening fireworks displays while commercial enterprises lure folks towards capitalist excess with varied sales for their wares and services. While we partake or refrain from all of this as we please, Satanists also make time to reflect on the significance of the manifestation of this country whose expressed values favor self-determination for its citizens. Satanism champions freedom, individualism […]

MEMORIAL DAY Today I offer due honor to those who have given their lives in support of preserving or enhancing liberty for others. For them, championing freedom was worth the loss of their own precious existence—a profound gift that is indeed worthy of deepest respect. As a grateful beneficiary of their courage, I salute them. I know that many who value their privilege of self-determination join me on this solemn occasion of remembrance. Such brave deeds should never be forgotten—they must live on in the memories of all who may now exercise their personal sovereignty. —Magus Peter H. Gilmore
