You may want to be a bit more motivated than that to join, otherwise, don't bother. The Church of Satan is not THIS nor is it about any other messageboard or about obtaining a red card. If you enjoy the forums here, that's great, however, don't think that this is anything other than what it is, a forum frequented by members of the COS and run by COS members. It is NOT the Church of Satan!

Membership has its benefits.

This much I have learned about membership.

The benefits?

Grottos.

More social interaction with others of the Satanic Perspective.

This board is the only 'place' I have ever encountered overt Satanists, though I know some individuals that fit the description.

So, if my motivation to join the Church of Satan were simply access to the Basement and the prospect of Grotto participation, would my application be rejected?

EDIT: Oh, and the Satanic record label looks very interesting to me as well.

Maybe. Maybe not. Your entire application is considered. I will say this:

Ask not what membership can do for you, rather, ask what you can do for the membership. ;\)

Heh. Thank you for the quick response.

EDIT: As for my own contribution to Satanism, it is still in development.
