Q: Do you guys really sacrifice virgins? Hell yes! And you're next! Q: Is there an all-powerful group of underground Anti-Christian Satanic Illuminati? How do I join!?! There isn't and you can't. Now shut up and go away. Q: But isn't there an organization that claims they worship Satan? No! So piss off already. Q: Can you please tell me what organizations are out there and what they do believe in. Oh for fuck's sake... Church of Satan: Silly people who believe in hedonism and their own greatness. Temple of Set: Silly people who believe that black magic is real and their priests believe in a deity known as Set. Ordo Templi Orientis: Silly people who believe in Crowely, Thelemic and various other occultnic bullshit. Order of Nine Angels: Silly Nazis who can be quite dangerous at times. (in the eighties they didn't deny human sacrifice and many were even thought to promote it) First Church of Satan: Silly people with a leader who claims that he curses people and they die. Satanic Reds: Silly communists who believe in the Dark Doctrines. Q: What are the Dark Doctrines? Shut up and go read 'em! And don't interrupt me again! Church of the Baphomet: More silly people. Lucifer's Den: More silly people. Satanic Kindred: More silly people. (phew...I was running out of breath) The Satanic Council: Really silly people with huge egos. Lucifer's Den is supposed to be the "Head" of this group at the moment. Rogue Teenage Groups: Although not organizations, these groups bonded by similarities, commit what they think are "black magic acts" when in reality they are only brutally butchering small pets and terrorizing the surrounding neighborhoods. Ok...that's about it. Don't ask about fucking wiccans or wizards! This is alt.satanism. Q: But wait, how many satanists are there? You sure have a lot of fucking questions...Jesus Fucking Christ on an Inverted Cross!!!! A general rule of thumb. All of these organizations have a turn over rate that would make McDonald's cringe. From the largest to the smallest: most active members of any group will not exceed 500 people but in general about 100 people, if that. Q: Could you please tell me about Satanic History? No. Go read a book. Q: Oh, please, please tell me about the history of the churches. IF YOU DON'T SHUT THE FUCK UP AND QUIT ASKING QUESTIONS, I AM GOING TO CURSE YOU! http://www.pinstruck.com/ Alright kiddies, let's all gather round the camp fire. Closer... we'll need to whisper...of a past era...an age when things were not as they are today...a prehistoric era.... Here is the Big Story of THE BEGINNING! A long time ago, on april eleventh, 1930, in Cook County, Illinois, Michael and Gertrude Levey were blessed with a son. They named him Howard Stanton Levey. As a teenager, he became a carny and learned the "carny way". It is basically the "gypsy way" which is to defraud people of money anyway you can. Always the showman, Howard Levey found his way. He shaved his head bald (over a bet a little later), painted his house black, changed his name to Anton Szandor LaVey and became known as the first self-proclaimed High Priest of Satan. In 1966, he founded the official Church of Satan. It was a brilliant move. CoS Church of Satan - Anton LaVey (Deceased 1997) Avarice, showmanship were his greatest qualities. If you want a quick overview of his positions read a couple of his books. "The Satanic Witch", "The Satanic Bible", etc. High Priestess Blanche Barton (Anton's "old" girl friday) is now "supposedly" running the Church of Satan and she has become pretty much a laughing stock. Peter Gilmore (Former American Fascist Party Member) is now a High Priest and probably runs most facets of the Church of Satan. In the 70's, LaVey Pissed off a gentleman by the name of Michael Aquino. That was not so brilliant a move. LaVey decided to declare the Church of Satan his personal, private money making enterprise (which he had been planning all along). He declared that the "Satanism" image was complete crap and The Church of Satan was an organization dedicated to the worship of one's self and pure carnality. Michael had a fondness for the belief in a previous "Dark Force," to that of Satan, if you will. Dr. Aquino was so angry that he left with some original members of the CoS (He claims the church left "en masse". I take it he meant many). He mysteriously received a "Crowley-like vision/message" from a Dark Egyptian Deity called Set (an inventive idea that placed the existence of the God Set as previous to that of the construct known as Satan; he submitted that the words "Set-hen" were the first Hebrew construct of the later Satan). So began the Temple of Set. So began the first self-proclaimed High Priest of Set. ToS Temple of Set - Dr. Aquino (Founder of the Temple of Set) '75. Distinguished Presidio (San Francisco) Armed Forces Lt. Col. with a true doctorate. He was accused of "SRA" Satanic Ritual Abuse. There is a five billion page FBI report that exonerates him. The Crystal Tablet of Set will get you going. "The Book of Coming Forth by Night" will help also. Bit of an Egypt enthusiast but all around nice guy....well, for a satanist. (many former members would not agree with the previous) He is no longer High Priest. He's sloughed it off onto a fellow named Don Webb. Believe it or not, there is now a... FCoS First Church of Satan - Lord Egan (Founder of First Church of Satan) This ushered in a second self-proclaimed High Priest of Satan. He was an "original member" in the early 70's and lays claim to the legitimate legacy of the Church of Satan as have so many others. He has also been accused of pedophilia. He subscribed to NAMBLA. Other people of note: Karla LaVey (Daughter of Anton) She sucked up to her father in the end but when it wasn't enough to win her the heir to the business/High Priestess position in the CoS, she fucked off again. She's made her own church too...pretty useless. There's Zena LaVey (Daughter of Anton) She believes her filthy father allowed her to be molested. She ran to Aquino. You can picture the other "satanic" orgs. as having differences similar to Lutherans, Baptists and the Amish; getting the idea? Their differences vary. Apparently, the Satanic Reds are growing to a respectable size. Unfortunately, none have had the impact that Howard Levey and Dr. Aquino did. (The Satanic Reds disagree with this position.) Now you can run home kiddies and tell mommy and daddy that you know all about Satanism, when in fact, you know nothing. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- from a post to alt.satanism by Satan himself!
