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*
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.
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)
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)
