CoS headquarters is now located in New York.

Be patient. There is a lot of mail to be processed.

What you get from affiliation will be comensurate with what you put in. As for meeting other members, that will be up to you and those other members to work out between yourselves. There are no "services". That is not the way the CoS operates.

I guess you are out of luck then. If you become a member, and subsequently join a grotto there may be group functions to attend but the CoS does not have weekly meetings of the members to exhort them to Satanic behavior. We have neither the time, nor the inclination,for that nonsense.

What picture?

and a few questions on how to apply the philosophy or principles to everyday life?



If you can't figure that out on your own you are not cut out for the CoS.

We don't respond to every letter we receive; in fact, we respond to very few as almost everything a non-CoS member needs to know is right there on our website, and you seem to have found that.

The Satanic Bible isn't illustrated, so it's quite beyond me what picture you might refer to. The portrait of Dr. LaVey on the back cover was most likely taken in his home. Dr. LaVey never held "church services;" if you've seen video or photos of him officiating ritual, they were rituals conducted in his home, and the participants were by invite only.

The "666 Club" has absolutely nothing to do with the Church of Satan. Any photos you've seen there are of questionable origin and certainly questionable relevance to the Church of Satan.

There is no brick and mortar "Church of Satan", no services are conducted, because we have no need of "weekly devotion." It's not how we operate, because it has no place in Satanism.

It does not change the fact that these were not "services" in the Christian sense of the term.

You are making a nuisance of yourself. It is painfully obvious that you do not understand what the Church of Satan, and Satanism, is really about. What you want it to be is not what it is.

Go away!

How do you know it is your personal religion if you admittedly do not understand it yet?
