Hail to all who share our celebration of the Earth’s successive seasons! Here in the Northern Hemisphere, Fall’s arrival brings cool evenings with the promise of bountiful harvests. The impending touch of frost will ignite leaves to blaze with vivid colors. Those in the Southern Hemisphere rejoice in the triumph of Spring’s warmth over frigid Winter. Nature shakes free from stasis, surging forth with renewed vigor. Satanists luxuriate in vital, carnal existence, embracing the majestic seasonal cycles of our precious, fragile island in space. Our cognizance invokes humbling respect as we seek an ever-deepening understanding of our beautiful and dreadful Earth. May […]
As click-bait virtue signaling, the term “cultural appropriation” has been around for years. The parameters can vary, and the frantic pedantics push the needle one way while the more reasonable among us roll our eyes and just push it back. What it boils down to lately, is “I know it when I see it.” And now I see it for Satanism. Read the full essay here: The Cultural Appropriation of Satanism
A political activist group best known for “punking” journalists and politicians via high profile publicity stunts has today announced that abortion is a “Sacrament of Satanism” and thus protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This claim is both false and dangerous. Anyone familiar with the lunatic rantings of daytime talk show hosts during the Satanic Panic or the more recent “Q Anon” conspiracy theories knows that Christians often accuse Satanists of facilitating abortions as a form of child sacrifice. It’s ludicrous that anyone would think that associating abortion with Satanism would in anyway be beneficial towards Satanists or those […]

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 […]
Anton LaVey Legacy Canvas Print Inspired by his portrait photo on the back of The Satanic Bible, this canvas print of Anton LaVey pays homage to his inspirational creative endeavors throughout his years. Dr. LaVey’s hand drawn Church of Satan letterhead dragon encircles the Baphomet Sigil over his head while The Satanic Bible chapter dragon drawing precedes the name “Anton Szandor LaVey” (in the same font as The Satanic Bible cover) below him. This canvas print honors the books and art created by the founder of the most notorious religion in the world. Available in Print Only, Metal Backed, and Framed!
“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!
