I Hate Nazis

I can’t believe I have to say this. Honestly, I haven’t had anybody say that I am connected to Nazis since my school years when kids would make fun of my extremely german last name. Back then I would just laugh at them for being unoriginal and shrug it off. I knew the kids didn’t think I was hateful or a murderer.

A few weeks ago I was poking around on Twitter when I saw that somebody was making comments on my friend Sophie’s tweet, trying to say that the Church of Satan and its members were Nazis. It was really pissing me off because I am not a nazi. I am a Democrat and also not a monster.

Now, the Holocaust is interesting in a “peek into the mind of a maniac” sort of way, but the acts committed by Nazis and in the name of Hitler were astoundingly cruel and horrific. That makes me a student of history, not a Nazi.

But this person decided to go on and say that since the Church of Satan may contain members with Nazi sympathies, it is a Nazi organization. Um, no, that’s not how anything works. If we were to apply the same logic to everything else, the world would fall apart. Organizations all over the world have members that may have ideas or values that the organization doesn’t share.

An example: Most Nazis are Christian but Christians would take offense if you were to say that being Christian makes them a Nazi because they don’t kick the Nazis out of Christianity. An easier example: A square is a rectangle but not every rectangle is a square.

I am a very firm believer that people should be able to make their own choices in life. This may be because I had an abusive stepdad who wanted to control me and my mother and due to him, I put a lot of value in freedom. I dye my hair different colors because I don’t want to be constrained to black, brown, or blonde. Sometimes that means living in a world where I disagree with others.

Now, does that mean I would condone the banning of non-halal foods because Muslims decided that they don’t want them on the shelves anymore? No. Just like I don’t agree with Nazis that white people are the master race or whatever. I think that’s a disgusting ideal and I’m horrified anybody would compare me to a Nazi.

Maybe there are Nazis in the Church of Satan, I don’t know, because I am not responsible for who the Church of Satan decides to allow into their ranks. Nor do I have the power to kick Nazis out of the Church of Satan. If low-level members like me had that power, I’m sure the Nazis would have used it by now.

The members of the Church of Satan are not one hive mind. Sure, there are some values that we share such as The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth and The Nine Satanic Statements, but they mean something different to each individual Satanist. If you were to ask Reverend Campbell to interpret the Seventh Satanic Rule of the Earth and then asked Citizen Nero to do the same, their answers would probably be different.

Humans consume the world through different filters. These can be race, religion, socioeconomic status, childhood experience, privet vs public school, city vs farm living, and so much more. Because of these lenses, information is processed differently from person to person and no two people’s experiences can be the same. To say that all Satanists are one thing because you saw one Satanist do the thing is a sign of a small mind.

So, what can I do if I don’t want to be labeled a Nazi? The guy who prompted this post said that I am appeasing the Nazis because I’m not doing anything to get them out of my Church. That is if there even are any because I really haven’t looked into it. That’s not a productive way to spend my energy.

Well, I’m a teacher and I am using that influential position to make a better future. I am introducing them to plays and scripts that make them think and challenge their world view. We learn about the ways theatre was shaped in different regions of the world and how culture is a huge part of putting on a production. I am working on creating a world where Nazis can’t exist.

Reverend Campbell posted a video today where he discusses The Satanic Warlock of the Year award and what he is looking for in candidates. One thing that was on my mind a lot today was looking at what you’ve done in the real world and not within the world of Satanism. I really recommend watching the video because he’s spot on. I’m not just trying to drive Nazis out of the Church of Satan, I’m trying to drive that sort of thinking out of the entire world. To focus on JUST changing the little Satanic bubble you live in would be short-sited. I am focused on much larger prizes.

So go change the world, my Sweet Satanists, whatever that means to you.

I’m A Baby

I mean, I’m 24 years old currently, which is still very young, but most people wouldn’t call me a baby anymore. At least outside of the bedroom, that is. But, as a Satanist, I’m still little! Actually I’m pretty confident in saying I’m probably still in First Phase, which means I’m a little dumb still. (Ha). I only received my Membership card back in February of THIS YEAR!That is why I always make sure to emphasize that I don’t speak for the Church of Satan or any of its members.

From The Sun

What I do do (ha) is interviews. I like to get as many perspectives on a position so that mine might become more informed. Always keep learning, children. A few months ago, if somebody asked me to define Satan, I would say “An external, fictional representation of one’s best self”. That has changed a bit. Now I say, “An external, fictional representation of one’s best self, free from Abrahamic laws”. This little additions means so much, at least to me.

All of these things said, I’m going to throw another interview at you! This one is from a lovely Satanist who, like me, is also young. Actually, he’s 20! He has been in the Church of Satan FAR longer than me, though, and is an Active Member. You can check out more from our wonderful friend of the left-hand path on his blog Just A Young Satanist!

Now, sit back, pour yourself a glass of whiskey, and enjoy the latest entry in…

The Infernal Interviews

1) What made you realize you were a Satanist?
It was really a gradual progression. I came across information on Satanism almost by accident while doing research for a high school project. The more I read, the more I found myself agreeing. Even after reading The Satanic Bible I didn’t feel comfortable calling myself a Satanist as I hadn’t tried a ritual yet and I felt that if ritual wasn’t for me, then I probably was not a Satanist. The first ritual I ever did was the one in the Youth Communique on Churchofsatan.com because I was broke and I didn’t need a whole lot to do it. After that ritual, I was kind of like “Yeah, this is right for me” and I’ve called myself a Satanist ever since.
2) Do your friends and family know?
I live in a very small, religious town. I remember getting pulled aside by my vice principal because he was getting calls from concerned parents. I think most of my graduating class at least heard I was reading the Satanic Bible in school. All of the friends I kept from high school know and my closest friends in college know, but I don’t make a big deal about it. As far as family, I try to keep it private but that doesn’t always work out.
3) You can only use one condiment forever, which one do you choose?
Ranch is a condiment because I say, and it wins hands down.
4) What have you done in your life thus far that you are most proud of?
Well I’m really just starting to change focus from my achievements to my goals as an adult. The things I was once proud of don’t mean a whole lot to me anymore. I’m working hard on getting my associate’s degree without going into debt, and I plan to have that goal accomplished by August. After that, I’ve got sights on bigger and better things. I’ve got a few other personal projects in the works, but they’re too far out to make any kind of announcement. I’m proud of the hard work I’m putting in now more than anything.
5) Where do you see yourself at 60 years old?
In a comfortable chair in my home library. I’d like to have a couple of novels published, to have traveled, and to have a good group of friends. Life isn’t over at retirement, and I’m sure I’ll be pretty active in it.
6) If a wizard told you he would give you three powers, which would you choose?
If the wizard has the ability to give me any power I want, I would probably want the power of the wizard. If that isn’t an option, I would definitely go with mind reading, shape shifting, and whatever you would call the powers of Aang from Avatar.
7) Do you have any pets?
I do! Skunkie is my 16-year-old mutt of a cat named for the coloration of her face, Cookie is my 10-year-old tuxedo cat, and I have a 7-year-old black lab named Ranger. Some people count our poultry as pets, so at any one time we could have 20-30 chickens, 10-20 turkeys, or no farm animals whatsoever.
8) If you couldn’t live in the USA, what other country would you move to?
Germany. I love the food, landscape, architecture, and language. It also puts me in a position to easily travel to most of the other countries I considered, like Italy, France, Norway, and the UK.
9) What is your stance on Pineapple on pizza?
Generally speaking I think pizza is gross. Keep it off my pineapple and everything will be okay.
10) Describe your ideal home.
My ideal home would be approached by a long drive that winds its way through the dense forest. Once deep enough into the wood that privacy is guaranteed, the woods open to a clearing revealing Victorian style home. My attitudes on how it would look inside vary, but two things never change. Firstly, I want a secret room. Second, I want a large personal library. Overall, I want it to be a place of quiet appreciation of the natural world, a reflection of my interests, and a refuge for those friends who need to escape the outside world from time to time.
I hope you young kids out there who are now discovering Satanism take these answers, as well as the rest of his blog, to heart. We have all been exactly where you are now and we want to answer any questions you have. Now, I want to make it clear that I’m not telling you that you are a Satanist. Honestly, you’re probably not. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take some of the teachings of Satanism and apply them to your life.
Take no shit, my Sweet Satanist.

Not Everybody Knows

I know it may seem like it would be really easy for my family to find out I’m a Satanist, they apparently don’t care enough or don’t google me very often. That’s just fine with me. There are some people in my family who would never be able to wrap their heads around being a Satanist and not believing in Satan.

I also try to keep it on the down-low in professional settings. I work with children, so it’s not my job to try to convince them to be Satanists. I’m sure a few of them are, but not all of them. If they ask me questions about any religion, I’ll answer them, but that’s just because I feel they have a right to information. I’ll also point them to just google stuff, but make sure the information is accurate.

Now, since I’ve been interviewing a lot of out and proud Satanists, I’m going to bring on a person who calls himself a “Closeted Satanist’.

Buckle up for the latest installment of:

THE INFERNAL INTERVIEWS

20161029_150706.jpg
A Spooky Pumpkin

1) What made you decide to join the Church of Satan?

Joining The Church of Satan was my way of making a pact with The Devil, so to speak. It was my way of saying to myself, “You are one serious mofo” concerning my commitment to the religion/philosophy that has proven to be a most useful guide through life.

2) What is your response when people ask you if you’re religious? 

I usually just tell the curious that I’m non-religious. If I think they’re being pushy, I’ll confirm my atheistic stance to let them know I’m not buying what they’re selling. On the rare occasion when I feel I’m talking to a kindred soul, I might divulge that I’m a Diabolist.
3) Do you have any Satanic Paraphernalia in your house? Hidden?
I keep my ritual items and books displayed in my bedroom, along with a badass painting of Magus LaVey created by Rev. Eric Vernor. One might find a book I’m reading st any given time lying on a table in another room – I like to flirt with danger.
4) Would you rather go to space or ride a T-Rex? 
That depends. Are we talking riding the T-Rex in the Jurassic era or are we talking modern-day? Because I would totally dig going on a rampage through a busy part of town on the back of a dinosaur. Otherwise, I’d choose space.
5) Does anybody close to you know you’re a Satanist? 
When I was much younger (I’ve been a self-identifying Satanist for about 23 years), I was much more open about my interest in Satanism, so a lot of people knew. As I grew older and learned that subtlety can be my friend, I wore it on my sleeve less and less. There are probably still some who suspect that my involvement with Satanism was more than just a passing interest but I only talk about it with close confidants these days.
6) What is your Membership Status within the Church of Satan? 
I’m a Satanist (First Degree member). Basically, that just denotes active membership within CoS.
7) How do you weave Satanism into your daily life? 
My main source of income is my job in the steel structure manufacturing business. I work in an environment saturated with a lot of “good ole boys” – the “God, Guns and Government” types. I use Lesser Magic skills on a daily basis, like diplomacy, flattery and empathy (the latter two aren’t always genuine). I also live in a small town 30 miles outside of Nashville, TN, so those skills come in handy pretty much everywhere around here.
8) Do you have anything you’re working on currently you’d like to talk about? 
I’m currently writing songs for an acoustic project I plan to record with my wife’s assistance on vocals. I’ve also recently been inspired to take up painting. I’ve always been an above-average sketch artist but never seriously tried my hand at mediums involving color. I’ve got a long way to go but I’m steadily improving.
9) What made you decide to stay in the closet about being a Satanist. 
I have young children whom I don’t desire to see suffer on account of my interests and affiliations.
However, I’m not a total closet-Satanist. I just choose to keep that part of my life out of the spotlight. I’ll still talk about Satanism with open-minded folks and I do wear a Baphomet sigil ring often, so those in-the-know can identify my interest.
10) Define Magic. 
Magic is a hunk of blackberry cobbler topped with vanilla ice cream.
Ladies and Gents, and every flavor in between, I found this entry to be particularly interesting since I find myself hiding it in some social circles and being really open about it in others. You can be a Satanist and be Satanic without wearing Satan on your forehead. I hope this gets you all thinking and let me know if you have any questions for me or my guest.
Have a Devilish Day, my Satanic Sweethearts.

I Got to Raise Some Hell

So this interview is really exciting for me because I really love the Raising Hell Podcast. I’ve been listening to Milton and his guests for a little over a year now and it has helped me so much. This Podcast is amazing because it will talk about anything from Magic to Sex to Parenting to Disabilities and beyond.

One of my favorite people Milton brings on is Witch Troj. She is wonderful to listen to and she always has a way to articulate her opinions in ways that allow the listeners to absorb the information while drawing their own conclusions. He also has wonderful segments such as The Grownup Grotto, What Would Josephine Do, What the Wild Things Think, and more. I find each of these segments offers different information that pertains to both Satanism and Parenting.

To be clear, I am not a parent, I just want to be one day and I figure it’s probably best to start learning now so that I can be the very best like no one ever was.

And on that note, allow me to give the floor to my future friend (Oh yeah) Warlock Milton Cruver!

16711723_10208330401244315_4063644576561861531_n.jpg
Milton and Audra (I’m assuming. This photo is from his ‘Meet The Family’ page to be fair).
1) What Satanic qualities do you inject into your parenting? – Satanists have always had the innate privilege of representing our religion through the simple act of living, unlike other religions in which people are expected to follow a particular set of mandates. Satanism is not a religion one practices through an ideology which must be adhered to but which one identifies with as naturally defining of how one has always lived their life. This is what is meant by the dictum of, “Born, not made.” and we present ourselves accordingly. It is for this reason there could never be any indoctrination or proselytizing into or within our religion. Any attempts to do so are always met with the most resounding of objections from those who “get it”. The mentorship of our young ones, as I see Satanic parenting to be, comes from a curriculum of pragmatism and realism which exults in the magic of allegory, theatrical expression and symbolism. We are here to assist our youth in navigating the world unfettered by the chains of unreasonable expectations and assertively engage in showing them how to think instead of simply what to think. In tandem with this is our dictum of Responsibility to the Responsible. Rather than supporting an environment which extols a victim mentality of blaming others and making excuses, we champion the ego building lesson of being responsible for ones actions and holding others accountable for the same. Submitting to peer pressure is not a valid excuse for poor choices and we do not condone association with groups that undermine an individuals self-worth. In all things, we set the example for our children through living a life unashamed of who we are. If the first step in life is coming to a realization of what you represent, the completion of that circle in all its Satanic glory is being proud of what that is. You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to be you.
2) How often do you have to tell your children not to put things in their mouth? – Not as many times as perhaps I should. If it’s not going to poison them and it’s not a choking hazard, they can figure it out for themselves. Why deprive them of the adolescent joy of finding out that Mama’s fruity smelling soap does not indeed taste like mango lemon sherbet? And the humorously betrayed faces when that toy they’ve managed to cram into their mouth sticks out at all odd angles? Kids are far too often not allowed to test the world, even within the relative safety of the home. I think todays kids could do with a healthy dose of getting back to basics, and making a few more mistakes before they find themselves in the much less forgiving world of societal expectations and personal faux pas.
3) Describe your relationship to Satanism and The Church of Satan. – First and foremost I’d like to state that this relationship, as all should truly be, was consensual. Satanists live our religion. We are Satanism. There has never been a need for a brick and mortar Church as we carry our churches with us. In our hearts and minds and upon our bodies, the temple in which Satanism resides comes ready-made in the form of our fleshy vessel and quite appropriately returns to the earth when we leave this mortal coil. Those few who have opened their own personal lairs (the late Anton Szandor LaVey included) to worthy individuals of our cabal do so with a discerning eye and do not suffer the majority to partake in the comradery and ritual which takes place behind closed doors. As a Warlock in the Church of Satan I am active within the organization and the membership which it comprises.
4) Do other parents ever give you shit for being a Satanist? – There have been instances where those whom I associate with on a professional level uncover my association and involvement with what have been labeled, “the dark powers”, and approach me with venomous concern over how they think I must comport myself as a parent. With few exceptions, I have been able to not only allay those concerns but find common ground and now enjoy very supportive and enjoyable friendships with some of them. Parenting is one of those hot button topics which, rightfully so, people tend to take personal and concern themselves over greatly. It is more important to me that a guardian support the individual child through an open and honest relationship, than what they personally choose to believe or to what faith they ascribe themselves to. I’ve found myself agreeing most wholeheartedly with devout believers on some topics, while some of my atheistically inclined fellows hold opposing views.
5) What is your favorite salt-water creature? – I’m a sucker for the octopus. (HAHA)
6) Are you working on any projects currently? – As host of the Raising Hell podcast, I’ve been presenting the Satanic Perspective on Parenting for over three years now. I’ve colluded on a number of projects, some public and others more behind the scenes both within the organization and outside from media representatives and independent artists. There are several endeavors underway which will be released either towards the end of the year or in early 2019 which I’ve had a hand in and I look forward to seeing them come to fruition. Stay tuned!
7) What do you think your greatest accomplishment is? – In my young adult life, I take great pride in having successfully pursued a career in public service as a Fire Fighter while continuing my day job and supporting my family. Working through the required curriculum and academy time throughout the week and attending classes and events on the weekend makes for a busy schedule, but working towards a goal and setting an example for my children with a healthy work ethic and drive to succeed is immensely gratifying.
8) What’s your favorite scary movie? – This is incredibly difficult to answer, as there are a number of incredibly worthy movies. But if there was one I would recommend to people, it would have to be Dog Soldiers (2002). The basic synopsis is that a British Special Forces team is set to do war games against another special forces team, finds them dead in the woods and ends up battling werewolves. For anyone who despises movies where the protagonists don’t fight back and make terrible choices, this one is a refreshing change of pace.
9) If you could tell your young self one thing, what would it be? – Stay the course. At times it will be tough, but you’ll be tougher.
10) Define Magic. – While I could recite the clinical definition of Magic as it applies to Satanism, I prefer to explain it as I would to a child. Magic is what captivates you and in turn, what allows you to hold the world captive. The most mundane of things can hold the greatest of power. The ability of a flame to capture ones attention. The rapture one feels when an infant laughs with joy. The serene peace one can find in the morning sunrise. Whether through you exerting your will to change the hearts and minds of those around you or by ritualistic expression overcoming your own personal tribulations, magic has the ability to change not only the world around you, but that the one in which you choose to move through. (This was beautifully put)
Thank you thank you thank you so much Milton for taking the time to answer my questions. I continue to learn through your words and I can’t wait for the next episode of Raising Hell to come out. Seriously, guys, you have to listen to the show, even if you’re not a parent or not a Satanist.

I Interviewed A Wicked Witch

Before I sent in my Church of Satan Membership application, along with my Active Membership Application, I started learning. I learned about Satanism though The Satanic Bible and various texts you can find on the Church of Satan’s website. I explored the reading and the interviews and the movies. I listened to the music and, most influential for me, podcasts. Today I will be posting the first of two interviews with the hosts of my two absolute favorite Podcasts.

This first one is with the host of Confessions of a Wicked Witch on Radio Free Satan. This is where I learned about Lesser Magic, Greater Magic, Rituals, Holidays and so much more. I love listening to the Podcast and look forward to each new post. I find Magistra Ygraine’s voice really soothing, too, so I like to listen to it when I’m trying to relax.

Sit back, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy.

From Confessions of a Wicked Witch

1) Tell me about your Podcast.

Confessions of a Wicked Witch has been on Radio Free Satan for years but we are changing the format. I’d like to surprise folks but I will say that it is high time I take these Confessions to an appropriate authority figure. After all, what good is a confession without a Priest to hear it?

2) What do you think the biggest difference is between a Satanic Witch and a Satanic Warlock, if any?
Other than genitalia, you mean? I prefer to stay on my side of the fence. It is more fun to be charmed by a Satanic man than to analyze his charms.
3) What would you do if all toothpaste suddenly tasted like burnt hair?
Grow mint and make my own.
4) What in your life are you most proud of?
My daughters. My Grandfather. My Mom. My Dad. My connections to humanity that haven’t been ruined by, well, humanity.
5) What is your ideal car?
The family joke is that I started as a minivan Mom and have, intentionally gotten smaller cars to avoid driving people around. My dream car? The Lotus Elon Emma Peel drives in the British series, The Avengers. 2 seater, you’ll notice.
6) If somebody said they would give you $100,000,000 if you punched your best friend in the face, how would you spend your money?
1/2 to the punch-ee. Then, well, ask around. I know how to spend money in truly decadent ways.
7) Is there a part of The Satanic Witch that speaks the loudest to you?
TSW did not automatically “talk” to me. I was too indoctrinated in the WORDS of feminism to notice I was practicing the arts LaVey described, as feminism. I tried, diligently, to shatter the salad dressing tests and the clock, and once again, Dok knew his shit.
8) Describe to me the experience of realizing you were a Satanist.
I think I knew before I knew, if that makes sense. Yet, the first time it came on like a light bulb was in The Black House, sitting with LaVey, happily discussing the Bacall/Bogie movies. I had been so nervous, so sure I would say or do something stupid, that when I snapped to I realized I had never been so comfortable, so me, in a “religious” setting in my whole life.
9) Tell me about The Wicked Witch of the year award.
I can only escape so much of my upbringing and experiences. I come from strong, accomplished women. I have given birth to three strong and accomplished women. As social media allowed more interaction I wanted to use my platform to introduce to Satanists at large, as well as to the mainstream, accomplished Satanic witches. It really is that simple. The rest is just my usual shits & giggles approach to life.
10) Define Satan to me as if I were a Non-Satanist.
I owe this one to Magistra Templi Rex Barton . The Miltonian ideal in Paradise Lost: He who would rather reign in Hell than serve in Heaven. He who will not kneel, will not yield, and will not apologize for his earned pride.
Thank you again to Magistra Ygraine for not only sitting down to take the time to answer my silly questions, but also taking the time to create a podcast that really helped me on my quest to the best life I can have. Her words have given me confidence and strength in my daily life and I hope you all get a chance to read her words.
Have a great day, my Darling Devils and pop by tomorrow for an interview with The Raising Hell Podcast.

Here’s my “Interview With The Hampire”

First things first. I did not create the title. My current interview victim did.

I was going to save this one for tomorrow, but since this morning’s post was, uh, interesting, I decided to end today on a really positive note. I’ve been doing these interviews with people who are members of the Church of Satan and while they have been so much fun, I also have a selfish reason for doing them. It helps me learn.

I’m a Baby Satanist. I’ve only been calling myself a Satanist for a year and a half now and became a Member of the Church of Satan just a few months ago. Right now, I’m still, and will always be, studying and attempting to learn. I know what I think Satanism is about, but no two Satanists are alike, which means I have a lot to learn.

That being said, here is our newest victim in what will hopefully be a long line of interviews. I proudly present: *Trumpet Sounds*

“Politically Incorrect Curmudgeon” – His own damn twitter

Church of Satan Warlock Robert Leuthold

Sit back, turn down the lights, and enjoy…

1) Why did Satanism appeal to you before you joined the Church of Satan? 

I read a King Diamond interview way back in ’97 and got the Satanic Bible (my first copy of many) shortly afterwards.  I was all of seventeen, so I went right into First Phase, with the expected disastrous results.

I read the book again in my mid-twenties, with a lot more maturity and life experience,  It all made sense, and I saw myself reflected in the Satanic Bible.  Little did my Catholic Mom know she raised me as one.

2) Which of the 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth speaks to you the most?
With the social climate of late, I’d say “Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal” Consent is key.  Satanists are supposed to be the highest embodiment of human life, after all.  You can’t project that while being a creeper who ignores consent.
3) Is there a misconception people have about disabilities that you’d like to clear up?

Just one?

Well, there are a few.  First and foremost, bluntly:

There’s a pretty big misconception that the wheelchair somehow affects my dick, it doesn’t (once you go gimp, you walk with a limp, after all).

Second, some Satanists misconstrue the concept of Might Is Right, and somehow think that my disability somehow makes me unfit to be a Satanist.  That logic is as lame as my legs. (You made me snort laughing)

 

4) If there was a Spaceship in the sky about to fire the lasers, what would you do? 
Join the aliens and pick out targets.  First?  Justin Bieber.
5) What about Satanism would you like Non-Satanists to understand? 
Non-Satanists never will, it’s like kicking water uphill, or trying to make me ballroom dance.  Aside from the obvious atheism, and that the statue guys aren’t us?  That Satanists aren’t drug addled illiterate metal heads that sacrifice animals.
6) Are you working on any projects right now? 
7) What in your life are you the most proud of?

Surviving until 40, since I was born prematurely and not expected to live the night.

I’ve seen, and befriended bands I’m a fan of (M Gira of Swans, Mayhem, and rotting Christ to name a few.  Attending year 50 two years ago was a massive high point, too. (Jealous)

 

8) If you could only eat one dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
9) Do you have a favorite genre of book to read? 
Graphic Novels.  I’m that rare breed that likes Marvel and DC.
10) Define Satan. 
Satan is symbolic of the human animal’s carnal nature and rebellious spirit.  Not some being to be worshipped or groveled to, but an archetype to aspire to.
I hope you found reading these answers as fun as I did! There’s nothing I love more than somebody who not only answers a question thoughtfully, but also funnily.
If you’d like to know more about our wonderful Warlock, check out The Metal Grotto, or you can follow Robert on Twitter, Here.
If you are a Member of the Church of Satan and would like to also be interviewed, just shoot me an email at L.hipp94@gmail.com (You can’t hide from me forever, Gilmore)
Have a Fantastic day, Little Lucifers! I love you all!
