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.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]

Gilmore and produced and designed by Reverend Andy Howl: THE DEVILS REIGN: ALL OF THEM WITCHES.

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- […]

On the 100th Anniversary of the End of World War I I take time today to share with many the contemplation of the conclusion of that immense conflict. World War I demonstrated human tribalism’s most deadly activity—war on a global scale, enhanced by technology to escalate carnage to an unprecedented level. When nations with adversarial cultures, ideologies, and territorial goals cannot coexist, war is the procedure that shatters tenuous balances that then shapes the future paths of all concerned—the ones who survive the devastation. Diplomacy is a dance that attempts to direct the flux of antagonistic nationalisms, but history demonstrates […]
