Today we mark yet another anniversary of The Declaration of Independence. Our founders intended this union to be a secular republic—a most unusual endeavor in the annals of human history. The philosophy of Satanism champions freedom, individualism and personal satisfaction, so endorsing the principles of a country that in 1776 promised its citizens “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” as fundamental rights is natural for us. We Satanists have found inspiration from the bold proclamation in the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian […]

“Doomsday” is the fourth and newest Candyboy album, released on occasion for this Summer Solstice! 8 tracks that blend electronic beats, avant-garde rock music and neoclassical melodies. “Doomsday” is set in a futuristic Los Angeles inhabited by humanoid guitarists controlled by a sadistic reverend. The videoclip written and produced by Candyboy with dutiful citations to the first Terminator directed by James Cameron, appears as a bizarre ironic horror-cartoon full of symbology, from Ars Goetia to Satanic symbology up to UFOs.
From our garden here at The Black House, we offer Solstice greetings to all in harmony with the Earth’s seasonal changes! In the Northern Hemisphere, we embrace the longest day of the year as sultry Summer begins. Those in the Southern Hemisphere mark the longest night as Winter initiates its gelid dominion. Particularly in this stressful time of pandemic and social unrest, connecting with the fecundity of our glorious home world is a means towards replenishing one’s energy and looking towards evolving our society in ways that are vital. As Nature flourishes, we note that we are also part of […]
The Church of Satan celebrates independence, sovereignty, and emancipation from imposed servitude on this Juneteenth, 2020. 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!
Launched in 2000, Radio Free Satan established itself as one of the earliest licensed, online radio networks in the world, and the first with shows from a Satanic perspective.

Those familiar with Satanism, clearly articulated in decades of our literature, should understand our philosophy’s stance regarding the murder of an innocent man and the abuse of power currently being protested across the country—we find it appalling. We recognize the historical importance of recent events and, in the same way the Stonewall Uprising ignited societal change, we consider these actions will possibly lead to a more accountable system of justice. …The Church of Satan has always made it clear that a Satanist’s politics should be their own. We refuse to treat our membership like brainless sheep, in desperate need of […]
Today, in honor of Magus Gilmore’s 62nd Birthday, Satanme is releasing his 1982 painting Goat of Mendes as a full-sized print in multiple configurations. Because of this image’s “adult nature,” you must be 18 years old to purchase this print. The actual product will not contain the “Censored” graphics you see here to make it safe for social media. “My painting Goat of Mendes was inspired by both the infamous Éliphas Lévi Baphomet drawing published in Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie, 1856, and its face by a work of Austin Osman Spare which appeared on the cover of MAN, MYTH […]

Being in the midst of a global pandemic arouses a keen awareness of the fragility of our civilization and the ephemerality of human life. People regularly die from varied causes, at rates that most ignore during the pursuit of their personal goals. But news of additional demises beyond the normal tally should jog us into a rude awareness: One can lose the precious gift of living in ways that otherwise might be avoided when an infectious disease is making the rounds. We Satanists do not believe in any form of afterlife—no after life mints for anyone! We generally do all […]
