Infernal Greetings
I would like to know a few things
1- Why isn't there a COS in Australia?
2- Who makes the decisions in this area?
I know that satanism is definitely not a top priority religion/belief in Australia, but even the smallest religions still have rights and classed to be socially accepted. Can anyone suggest where I find out more information of this nature, or does anybody have any information about this? It would be greatly appreciated if I could be directed in the right paths about this.

Hail Satan!

Why isn't there a COS in Australia?

What drew you to this conclusion? The Church of Satan is a worldwide organization with any number of representatives and members in Australia.

2- Who makes the decisions in this area?

Not exactly a well-worded question. I assume you mean to ask who heads the Church of Satan in regard to Australia (rather ironic since you assumed the Church of Satan had no presence in Australia with your first question).

The Church of Satan is headed by High Priest Peter Gilmore and his wife, High Priestess Peggy Nadramia. They administer top-level church functions on an international level, including Australia, from the headquarters in New York, NY.

I'm also not sure what the status of Satanism as a minority religion has to do with acquisition of information, since it is a minority religion in the US and everywhere else. The basic literature, including the five books authored by Dr. LaVey, and the two books authored by Magistra Blanche Barton, can be ordered from the CoS Emporium or from amazon.com. The CoS webpage, or course, is available for free internationally (except perhaps in some countries that censor it).

If you are referring to a brick and mortar structure, the reason is because there are none to begin with. The Church of Satan does not operate like that.

What "decisions" would those be?

If you are looking for Church of Satan-approved Grottos in your area, you must be a member of the CoS before anything else. Also, a grotto in your area might not want to be known publicly, and still others in existence are not looking for new members.

Perhaps if you were a bit more specific in your inquiry, one of us could answer your question better.

Thank you for the reply.

Yes you are right. My questions were not very specific. I appreciate the information you have given me and you have answered that which I was curious to know.

H.S!
