Have you read The New Church Ladies by Jim Goad? If not, I think you would really enjoy it along with some of his other writings. Dr. LaVey was interviewed in Answer Me! Which appears in the book containing all four issues. Though fair warning to

Um, de_Lioncourt, thanks for the input, but by now I considered this a dead topic. By now I consider this thread old and ancient. You're right about everyone having their own reasons to join. I have my own reasons for following Satanism, and they are

Yes, it's quite funny. If random people on the internet encourage you to download/obtain books illegally and you don't tell them to fuck off, then what's stopping you from proceeding further as a fledgling criminal? Now, if I could assume just for

I read all of LaVey's books free online. I would have bought them but I have to save my money to join the CoS. I have had the same job for 10 years and probably make less money than you. And I mow lawns. Here's the thing - I don't mind telling you

You may want to review the section "How and When to Lie" in The Satanic Witch and "The Liars Club" in Satan Speaks! The takeaway is that it is easier to successfully lie when telling others what they want to hear -- as in the cas

I can tell you why you'd need to pretend to be ANYTHING you're not: to get what you want or need from someone who would do things in your favor if you actually were the thing you're pretending to be. I lie regularly - or, at least, retain information

Why would you need to say your a witch, wicken or whatever? Atheist is honest enough without telling people what you are. If you dress a certain way in public, nah, I just like the culture, I just like dressing like this, etc.

Great essay. But why share it now three years after it's been written. Why not back then? Of course this means I would miss your post, but that is besides the point. Did this take you days to put together, or hours?
