This organisation claims to be a 'cabal of the Church of Satan' and it's Membership Policies require that those who join must be certified members of the Church of Satan.

So, is this officially a branch of the Church of Satan? And if yes, what's the point?

I cannot answer your question about the CoS affiliation of this group. Looking at their site though, it seems a bit strange for somebody to be hosted at Geocities if your are a serious organization, I mean getting your own domain name and a hosting company shouldn't be that expensive. In my opinion, even in cyberspace the rules of lesser magic still apply.

It is a website operated by a CoS member, yes.

But not a "branch" of the CoS. We do not have branches.

If you spend any time in the movie forum, you will recognize the name of the Warlock who runs the site.

Geocities or no Geocities, from what I have seen, Warlock Blackthorne runs a quality site.

From the mail-address on the site I guessed it might be either Warlock Blackthorne or somebody pretending to be him - the hosting just seemed to be at odds with the impression that I had gotten from this forum. So, no disrespect towards the content intended, just pointing out that the choice of hosting may cause newcommers to question the seriousness of the site.

From what I gather it's an unnofficial gathering of Satanists (as defined by the C.O.S.) who are involved in different activities.

They also publish The Devil's Diary magazine.

That is for you to find out. Warlock Draconis Blackthorne, is a gentleman, and a most interesting Satanist, to get to know. My interactions with other Members at O.B.D. have all been very positive, and have resulted in lasting friendships.
