You did the right thing. I've seen too many people turn away from someone in true need as you described. It was just not too long ago I was in a situation where I could have turned away from someone in need, but I didn't. Why? Because I didn't know this person, and he was truely helpless(and hurt very bad). For all I knew he could have been a really swell guy.

It seems alot of people think Satanism is about being nothing but malevolent, yes it's a part of Satanism when justly due to someone, but there's also compassion that comes with Luciferian Enlightenment. Many don't understand this love and joy that is part of Satanism, because they can't break the Religious Deist Ball and Chain(Good and Evil) that's been placed on them.

Don't listen to those who say you only helped him for attention, because those who let compassion die for the truely helpless are the most wretched in my book! I'm sure you'll live forever with that old man for the rest of his days! ;\)

It would have really been a hoot if you were wearing a Baphomet medallion that just "happened" to fall out at that moment, for all to see!

It would have been indeed! Funnily enough, my medallion has arrived today!

Thank you all for such kind words, that means alot.

Hopefully this has called for some interesting discussion.

I'm afraid there's more to it than just the money.
Weakness reveals in different ways in the presence of frailty.

People love to pity from above. It's reassuring.
They love tragedy, not only because it thrills them, but because it's someone else's tragedy, not theirs.
Passivity is the only way for them to "make sure" they will not be disrupted by life or death. Else, these unfortunate accidents they never interfere with, are part of their consolation system.
"My life is not that bad, after all".

That's even more obvious, when it comes to old people.

What amazes me is how shallow it all is. How sick.

I always hated that very Christian assumption, our misfortunes are nothing comparing to bigger ones.

It's only logical to weep about the hunger in the world, and leave the old guy to die.

Probably would have been met with comments about black magics and selling the guy's soul to restore him to life or something.

Seriously though, knowing the herd, they either wouldn't pay attention, would pretend they didn't notice, or would make a big deal out of it.

Would be entertaining to see though.

This is a little off topic, but I have found that when members of the herd see my Baphomet they usually have one of two reactions. There's the "Oh, I like that, it's pretty. Where did you get it?" and then there's the don't notice it at all group. I have had very few people recognize it for anything at all and those were pagans of one sort or another and knew only that it had an inverted pentagram in it.

Really the herd is too involved in their American Idol and shit to notice much of anything.

Hail Satan!

I agree. Most people don't have the slightest clue as to what it meant. I had some friend of a friend scan through my sketch pad once and came upon one of my Baphomets. He said, "Did you get this symbol from the book Dune?" I told him yes, but I do like the Dune series.

I've noticed that often those who see the Baphomet are simply afraid of it for its sinister appearance, and really don't know what it actually relates to.

But oh so useful for Lesser Magic!

I think you should be proud of helping the old guy. If I were to put myself in the same situation, I know I would be heartbroken to see someone in that condition and want to help them. Unfortunately though, I know it would occour to me that there are possibilities of doing more harm than good in situations like this. I think that in the US particularly, I would be concerned of possibly doing something that would be detrimental in some way and even doing more harm than help. I can see it now - "Passerby being sued for medical malpractice..."

First aid training comes in handy huh?

Actually here in the US there is what is known as the "Good Samaritan Act." Basically this says you cannot be sued if you act in good faith to help a person who's life is in danger, as long as you act as anyone else with your ability would have.

In other words, if you stop and perform CPR on someone and end up breaking some ribs, you cannot be sued since others of the same ability would have done the same thing. If, however, you decide the person needs a tracheotomy and you don't have the slightest idea how to do it, you can be sued if you slice the guy's vocal cords and he can never speak again.

I'll bet you were just dying to know all this. Ha!

Hail Satan!
