I am not really sure what proper etiquette is in these matters, but I think it proper say that I will be requesting membership in The Church of Satan. While I have known that I am a Satanist for some time, I always thought I would wait until I was ready to join. Commitment is a serious thing to me, and I did not want join until I "was ready". Well, time has gone on, and I have gained an appreciation for the fact that, while Satanists are born, not made, there certainly is a process of growth and maturing. That shouldn't be a surprise. Life is like that, and what is Satanism, if not an accurate description of life?

To make a long story longer, I feel it is time. Joining the Church will not change who I am. The only outward difference is that I will be proudly carrying the red card in my wallet. But I do find that taking concrete steps strengthens both my commitment and resolve in any endeavor I undertake.

Congratulations - and I agree, it doesn't change you, it just confirms what you already knew.

I also waited until I was sure and ready, so I can understand where you're coming from. I discovered LaVey's work in late 94 as a teen, but didn't actually sign up until I think 2000/1.

Which is not to say membership doesn't have its privileges, even on this board. ;\)

You may get far more than you bargained for.

Networking, cameraderie, invitations to events, and much else that will not be discussed here.

Congratulations on a wise decision.

Now just how old did you say you were?

Ah, this is excellent news! I'd make some completely inappropriate joke about sitting on Santa's lap but.... I'll save that for when you get downstairs.

HS!

How long before the upstairs has only me?

But seriously, congratulations on taking the plunge. You may well be the first Rooster to join the Church of Satan! Although I don't think the Church is allowed to disclose that kind of information.

Unfortunately my own plans to become a member were thwarted, as I'll be changing address before the processing would be completed.

When you receive your red card, do me a favor. As you open the package, please direct the emotions you feel into an empty bottle. Cork it immediately and send it to me in the mail.

I would love to drink that wonderful potion again.

Congratulations on your decision.

Maybe it's just me...but that's kind of a strange request, my friend.

Not at all. I'd sell my soul for a bottle.

Thank you.
Incidentally, I was going to request a name change. I mean, imagine...time goes on...word gets out that Roho is so very photogenic...there is a press opportunity nearby...I get a call...I am introduced as Agent Rooster. But my wife says not to worry...keep the name. I wonder what she meant by that?

It's written in an ancient code called metaphor. It was invented in pre-historic times by horny poets to confuse the masses and enamor young, intelligent women.

Translation of original post:
You will be excited when you receive your membership package in the mail. I certainly was.
