Church of Satan wishes you a Happy New Year!

To a Vigilant New Year!

Tomorrow begins year LVIII, Anno Satanas. We live in a time of social upheaval. Global economies are in spasms, kept in drastic flux by an ongoing aggressive war which has again raised the specter of possible military nuclear detonations. This chaos has provided an open season for authoritarian power grabs. While Christianity had played the role of a domesticated belief system—their most widespread denominations were not actively involved in crushing the pluralism of contemporary times—we can clearly see that the Dominionists amongst them have been working diligently to seize political power towards the end of legislating their beliefs as law—other […]

The Hudson Valley Black House, Winter 2022.

A SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE!

The Winter Solstice is again upon we denizens of the Northern Hemisphere. Nature’s might is awesome, always to be respected, and as our days at last begin to lengthen, the gelid outdoors contrast with our cozy indoor spaces here at The Black House in the Haunted Hudson Valley. In April of 1974, Isao Tomita released his album SNOWFLAKES ARE DANCING, which consisted of his arrangements of music by Claude Debussy for a Moog synthesizer and a Mellotron. Tomita’s sweeping, fanciful soundscapes captured a lush beauty that few expected could come from electronically generated sounds. The title work is a splendid means […]

Happy Halloween from The Black House

Halloween 2022: Carpe Noctem!

We Satanists find Halloween to be a holiday that celebrates the outsider, the other, those who are not like most. It is on this night that the “normals” tend to explore their own quirks and inner-darknesses by wearing costumes that often reveal aspects of themselves typically hidden during the rest of the year. We’ve seen that there has recently been a plethora of party-poopers publishing lists of costumes that are considered to be in poor taste, or in some way offensive to these namby-pamby nincompoops. Fie on such spoilsports! I suggest it is far wiser to find a mode of […]

Magister Bill M.—Repeating Facts and Caller Spats: My Night on Coast to Coast AM

Satanism is, by its very design, macabre and uncomforting to the masses. Because of this, it occasionally comes up as a topic in discussions of human peculiarities. As a result, Church of Satan representatives have sometimes accepted invitations to appear in writings, at events, and on talk shows all about the strange and unknown. Arguably the most famous of these talk shows is Coast to Coast AM. Born out of earlier shows led by Art Bell (1945-2008) in the late 1970s, Coast to Coast AM is a nationally-syndicated radio show on the strange and paranormal. The show’s current host is […]

The Devil's Diary XXXIV - Halloween, LVII

The Devil’s Diary XXXIV: Halloween LVII

The masks of Satan begin to emerge, peeking ‘neath floorboards and beds, from moonlit windows & shadowy closets, attics & basements, skeletal trees lurking, beckoning the darkling to become one in perpetuity. Heralding the path to nightmare fane, the inner darkness revealed to revel, and from bubbling cauldrons, unholy confections tempt with multisensory delights, The Devil’s Communion invites. Satan’s brides by hellements unite! Bats and witches fly, demons arise from pentagram gateways, werewolves howl & stalk the land, ghouls and zombies from graveyards lurch, hooded phantoms float with glowing eyes, vampires and wraiths haunt your dreams. The shadows come alive! […]

Father Urbain Grandier's Execution

Everyone I Hate is a Satanist!—The Church of Satan’s High Priest responds to a statement by Aleksei Pavlov

According to TASS, Aleksei Pavlov, an assistant secretary on the Security Council of Russia, has advocated for the “desatanization” of Ukraine: “I believe that with the continuation of the special military operation, it becomes more and more urgent to carry out the desatanization of Ukraine.” In social discourse, it has long been a common practice that some slur or epithet is employed to tarnish the reputation and credibility of anyone a commentator or leader wishes to attack. It is meant to be so reprehensible that it immediately condemns those defined by it. Historically, once Christianity was the major religion, “Satanism” […]
