Today we celebrate the achievements of Magus Anton Szandor LaVey on the anniversary of his birth. His courage in creating an anti-occult, pragmatic, materialist perspective when so many about him were rushing into escapist spiritual doctrines showed his intransigent dedication that a carnal religion was due as an antidote to the vapid pipe dreams being offered by most others.
His intuitions were unique, capsulizing a human type which already existed but had not previously been properly named. The earthy outsiders now had a resonant moniker and a coherent philosophy which reflected their nature.
We give him a horned salute and thank him for this precious gift!
Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!
Magus Peter H. Gilmore
