Satansplain #061 – The Myth of the “Satanic Community”

There is no “Satanic community”. Learn what Satanists mean by this. Also, Bill answers some listener mail about artificial human companions, doctrines of superiority, and an anecdote about one Satanist’s conspiracy theorist co-worker.

Satansplain #053 – Let’s You And Him Fight!

“Let’s you and him fight!” cry the onlookers who’d like to see Satanists spar with Christians for their public entertainment. Let’s not. Also: the Satanic calendar year, I-Theism, and a surprising email from Nigeria.

Church of Satan wishes you a Happy New Year!

To a Discerning New Year!

Tomorrow begins year LIX, Anno Satanas. For the new year, we of the Church of Satan have something fine to celebrate.

Cummings filmed over the course of several years, criss-crossing the USA, and also shooting in Canada and […]

Daffodils in The Black House garden.

Eggscellent Day!

Today, Christians celebrate their myth of a savior risen from the dead. Some neo-pagans esteem the relatively obscure female deity, Ēostre. Satanists note that traditions for this day stem from ancient seasonal celebrations which tend to include symbolism of the Spring rising of dormant vegetation, and thus “rebirth” and “resurrection.” There is certainly much beauty in the early flowers emerging here in the Haunted Hudson Valley, witness the daffodils from our garden here at The Black House. Since we are free of any holiday obligations, we might choose to ignore this date altogether. Yet, we diabolists may also enjoy whatever […]

Peter H. Gilmore: Threnody for Humanity

Threnody for Humanity by Peter H. Gilmore Now Streaming
