Rise of "The Satanic Unease"

The Rise of “The Satanic Unease” by Magus Peter H. Gilmore

The Rise of “The Satanic Unease” Devil worship has long been used by writers of fiction and makers of moving images as a choice from moldy rosters of “quick and easy villainy and excitement.” A silent 1928 porn short made in France titled Messe Noir depicts a female neophyte’s ritual initiation into a “Satanic Cult” with explicit scenes of ritual sex meant to stimulate viewers with something forbidden.

We are disappointed but not surprised by the news of this weekend’s shooting at DC’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant. Satanists are all too familiar with the viciousness of humanity, so much so that it’s codified in point 7 of the Nine Satanic Statements, which were published in 1969 — which we can now unfortunately refer to as pre-post-fact era.
