The New Testament of the Satanic Bible?

Screen Shot 2015-10-14 at 11.05.54 PM

There are a lot of people carrying the Satanic torch these days. At the top of the list there is the ever popular Church of Satan and the The Satanic Temple. But there are others out there waving the Satanic flag. Who would write a book entitled The Satanic Bible The New Testament Book One? Apparently the answer to this question is Ivan D’Amico.

You say that your book “picks up where the Church of Satan founder and author of The Satanic Bible Anton Lavey left off.” What do you mean by this?

When someone passes away, if they are leaving behind a work unfinished, it is either directly or indirectly implied if they would like others to continue their work. LaVey stated quite clearly, “The first hundred years of a new religion are the hardest,” and he wanted to pass the torch along to Boyd Rice as the leader of the Church of Satan, who, according to what I have read, turned it down.… Read the rest

The Totally True Story of the “Say You Love Satan” Murder

The 1980s, for those unlucky enough to remember, were a time of great terror. Commies, Nukes, Drugs, and especially Satan kept otherwise reasonable seeming people up at night with worry and dread.

Rock and Roll music, especially that perceived as under the loosely applied label ‘Heavy Metal’ often got the blame for sending the precious children down that murky path of moral turpitude, degradation, and eternal damnation.

It was in the paper, so it must be true.

It was in the paper, so it must be true.

Rational Wiki describes it thusly:

In sociology, Satanic Panic is a phenomenon characterized by widespread fear about the presence of Satanic ritual abuse in one’s community, state or country. The recent phenomenon of Satanic Panic originated during the 1970s[1] and gained traction during the 1980s and 1990s, when a widespread belief took hold within American[2]evangelical Christianity that a vast underground network of Satanists is in control of secular society. Satanic Panic seems to have disappeared entirely by the 2000s, perhaps because fundamentalists now have other things to panic about.

Satanists Delight in the Charlie Charlie Challenge

devilFor all you satanists out there, the erudite Paris Review has endorsed your Charlie Charlie Challenge:

I like to root for the underdog, so I’m always comforted to find Satanism in the news. There are, after all, some two billion Christians in the world, and only about a hundred thousand Satanists; if the eternal war between good and evil is a numbers game, then it would seem the good guys have this one in the bag. And yet Satanism persists—pure evil’s got moxie.

The latest coup from the dark arts is Charlie Charlie Challenge, a Ouija Board-ish pursuit in which players—who tend to be, let’s face it, kids and teens—cross two pencils over a piece of paper and attempt to summon a Mexican demon. According to no less reliable a source than the Daily Mailfour Colombian high school students were hospitalized for “hysteria” after playing the game, which set off an international pandemic of DIY voodoo:

Hundreds of teens have uploaded videos—from the UK to the United States, Sweden and Singapore—in which they ask, “Charlie, Charlie, are you there?” and then flee in terror when the pencil appears to move by itself …

“It’s a craze that has gone too far… It’s very dangerous for a young child to play with contacting the paranormal and diabolical,” Doctor Kelven Guerrero, who works at the Hato Mayor del Rey Hospital, told MailOnline.

Pro Tips: Alien Abduction or Satanic Ritual Abuse?

51ZncfvRC2LBecause I wrote a totally weird book and because I write regularly for Disinformation, people in my life think that I am an expert on the odd. The other night I was having some craft beer at a local pub while talking with some friends about how fun the color run was going to be, when one of my friends asked me a question that has been coming up over and over again.

He wanted to know how he could be sure whether he was the victim of Satanic Ritual Abuse or Alien Abduction. Usually when you are abducted, in all the excitement, it really is hard to tell what the Hell is going on. You know you are on a table, or maybe an altar, and something is happening. But whether you are being molested by aliens or Satanists is somewhat hard to discern at times.

Thankfully I was prepared to answer his question.… Read the rest

Occult Tourism in Mexico

Some tourists in Veracruz, Mexico got more than they bargained for when they attended an annual Black Mass held by a reputed Satanic cult, according to the Daily Mail. Granted, one would think things are going to get weird in hurry when signing up for something like this, but First World tourists sometimes operate under some strange, naive assumptions.

Did Leonard Nimoy Fake His Own Death So He Could Seize Control of the Illuminati?

Here’s a bit of fun from HardDawn.com about Star Trek star Leonard “Mr. Spock” Nimoy and the Illuminati. Don’t take it too seriously, y’all…

In the heady days immediately following the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Leonard Nimoy made a profound decision. It was 1964 and America was being torn apart. Ethnic minorities were rioting, the hippie movement had grown into a domestic terrorism threat and a newly-installed President Johnson was on the verge of committing troops to an all-out war in Southeast Asia. In the midst of all that turmoil, Nimoy made the crucial decision to enlist.

Leonard Nimoy Mr. Spock Star Trek

No, the 33-year old actor had not joined our military forces fighting against communism in Vietnam. Instead, he had enlisted in a far older, far more momentous battle, one being waged for the very future of the human race. He had decided to join the cast of the new science fiction television series, Star Trek, and in doing so, finally accepted his destiny as a foot soldier for the Illuminati agenda.

Can the Satanic Temple Save America?


Yes, we know the Satanic Temple and the Church of Satan are not the same. Great poster though…

Some satanic click-bait from Daily Beast, which claims “America’s new Satanists are less about animal sacrifice and more into ‘Paradise Lost’—and they may be our best hope for saving religious freedoms”:

It’s 1 a.m., and I’m waiting for a Satanic ritual to start at a loft in Detroit. It’s dark, natch, and smoky, ditto, crammed with people dressed in black. Most of them are young and goth-ish. There are upside-down crosses aplenty, pounding dance music, a porn room and a surprisingly good hors d’oeuvres table—freshly baked Madeleines and gorgeous fruit, on platters grouped around a massive ice-sculpture replica of Brancusi’s Princess X, a statue that’s either a penis and testicles or a woman gazing into a mirror, depending on your point of view.

At this Satanic Temple party, the ritual is finally starting.

What Does Religious Freedom Mean To The High Priest of the Church of Satan?


With all that’s been going on, not just as of late, but since the beginning of human culture, around the expressing one’s religious freedom I thought it might be entertaining, and possibly enlightening, to get the viewpoints on this issue from Magus Peter Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan. Happy Religious Freedom Day. Do what you do.

Today in the US is Religious Freedom Day and we Satanists find it worthy of observation. It has been a long journey since Anton LaVey founded the Church of Satan in 1966 to this, our 50th year. From initially being portrayed as a bizarre cult, we’ve earned respect and recognition from scholars, academics and law enforcement. I deal with those folks regularly. Many don’t need to be reminded that we’re an atheist philosophy, embracing the carnal. They’ve caught on that we champion individuality via the symbol of Satan, supervillain to the equally fictitious Yahweh.

DC Talk – Secret Chiefs of the Illuminati?

DCCoverOh, the weird shit you find on the internets. To preface this, earlier in the week I quite randomly had a dream that featured the impressively god awful Christian rap group DC Talk (which I wrote about on Facebook, Friend me). In this dream, I was in a classroom where DC Talk showed up to perform. We couldn’t believe our teacher actually thought this was something that we’d find interesting. So we students just mockingly encouraged them all hipster irony style as they did their crappy thing. Didn’t seem like there was a lot of substance to the dream, but upon waking up I realized that the only reason I’d heard of DC Talk in the first place had to do with them being forced on us in Church youth group as a kid. The dream had an incredibly similar vibe. “Hey kids, stop listening to that satanic secular music, these guys are church approved.” Being impressionable and somewhat open to the idea, those of us in the youth group took the tape home and gave it a listen just to discover that, wow, this is the worst rap group ever.… Read the rest

Hail Satan Your Own Way


Satanists are nonconformists. We all know that. So when most of us think “Satanic music,” we think of Satanic death metal. However, there are quite a few musicians that Hail Satan in a different way.

Satanism is based on individualism, epicureanism, and an “eye for an eye” morality. So it just stands to reason that a lot of Satanic bands don’t follow the leader when it comes to what it means to play music influenced by Satan.

The High Priest of the church of Satan, Magus Peter H. Gilmore studied music at NYU and holds a B.S. and M.A. degree in composition. He listens exclusively to classical music and film scores. He is most intrigued by the work of Mahler, Bruckner, Shostakovich, Vaughan Williams, Brahms, Sibelius and Beethoven.

The above maestros influence what he composes.

His works are piano, voice, instrumental ensembles—some of which he has realized with synthesizers and samplers.… Read the rest
