I am utterly impressed with your hard work to keep a well organized site going. Every time I log on, I can go where I wish to without some one throwing a pop up screen or invite at me unwarranted. Hail The Dark Tree!

If you're going to bother offering someone public acclaim, perhaps you should also bother to get his title right.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it is my understanding that using "Reverend" when referring to a "Magister" is perfectly alright. It says the following in the "Affiliation" section of churchofsatan.com:

"Registered Member (no degree)
Active Member—Satanist (First Degree)
Witch/Warlock (Second Degree)
Priestess/Priest (Third Degree)
Magistra/Magister (Fourth Degree)
Maga/Magus (Fifth Degree)

Those who hold the Third through Fifth degrees are all members of the Priesthood of Mendes and individuals with these titles may be called “Reverend.”"

Again, please correct me if I'm wrong???

Well by golly! Mark your calander! I stand corrected!

You are indeed right. While I might personally find it a bit sloppy, it does appear to be excusable.

I did the same thing and corrected someone on calling a Magister, Rev.

I was proven wrong, it happens to the best of us. The CoS page does say that any Priesthood members can be called Rev, I just don't think you should call a Magister, Rev. Personal opinon.

I guess it could be worse. My girlfriend's been having a hell of a time getting people to call her "Reverend" instead of "Priestess".

Yeah, but if I tried that with her, she'd just think I was talking to her cat. I usually stick with "Hunny-Bunny", which she at least responds to (usually with death threats ).

My personal opinion is the same as Mogg.

To me, a Priest/Priestess can be called Reverned. But a Magister and above deserve to be destinctive from the other grades; just as a Reverend is destinctive from a Warlock and a Warlock is destinctive from a Citizen.

I am very insistant about showing proper customs, curtasy, and respect to ranks and titles. Its probably a Marine thing.

Just so you know, I remember when Magister Ventrue was called Reverend Ventrue. I ment no disrespect to him, I think he must have a great level of patience to work with all of us.

Also, he has a code of honor that I respect personally. The Church of Satan has been around for quite some time and has always shown me dignity and respect regardless of my title or standing. Am I a card carrying member? No. Do I research their resourses? Yes. Because they are accurate.

Anton LeVay went to great lengths to promote Satanic philosophy. In the midst of harsh ridicule and judgementalism. I may not share his personal belief system, but what I do share is the freedom to be. To be myself. I live in the here and now. Tomarrow is what it is. All I know is today.

I think it's a uniformed service "thing".

So yea, back to the important matter of the topic, Magister Ventrue is a shining representation of our shared philosophies, and deserves the accolades given. I've only been a fixture in this forum for a short time, but I've already seen Ventrue as a successful business man and positive force in the Satanic community; a compleat Satanist if I may. Hailz to you Magister Ventrue! And much thanks for your efforts in supporting our shared network and helping provide us with access to some quite kick ass gear via the CoS Emporium.
