I've been watching this chat show called Ricky Lake, where in this instance people claiming to be vampires come on and argue with their parents etcetera about why they want to drink blood.

One person in particular came on, and this is where my point developes. An Ex-vampire, claiming to be brainwashed into doing all these vampiric activities, performing rituals and being forced into doing things they didn't want to. So far so good? Not uncommon, but one more thing: "following the Satanic Bible".

Do these people actually exist in large numbers? Obviously chat shows will attempt whatever to get ratings, but i've heard about it elsewhere. People actually claiming to be brainwashed into following the Satanic Bible. I tried to tell a friend about it on ventrilo but i became speechless.

I might not be cultured in this area as much as others on this subject. Whether people drink blood or not i could care less, it's the drone syndrome i keep seeing, usually among the right hand path.

I imagine the members, magisters etc will likely have dealt with these people before, should they exist. If this is the case, in hindsight, i might be more comfortable being less open to the topic should anyone ask me what i am. These imbeciles don't help the Satanic movement and it rages me.

I can see why nobody has answered you as of yet, but Hell, I will.

WHY? Why would you watch such an insipid Television show?

An Ex-Vampire eh?

There are nut jobs EVERYWHERE (your next door neighbor may have a jar of genitals in some formaldehyde down in his basement).

Many people like to place blame wherever they can. Look at some court trials on Court TV (now Tru-TV).

These people are mentally deranged sociopaths and should be seen as nothing less than that.

They belong in jail or in a padded cell.

Correct. You are most certainly NOT.

WELL I CARE! I care a great DEAL! Why you don't bothers Me. What if one of these nut jobs cares to slit your throat or wrist to 'become more powerful'. ????????

Correct. I laugh at these people daily. They are searching for anything. They find nothingness in the end which is exactly what they deserve.

I'm only a member. I am NOT an Agent. I am not a member of Hierarchy but I do know enough to say this:

The Church of Satan THRIVES. The Church of Satan needs NO help in movement. The Church of Satan has been doing swimmingly since it was founded by Our dear departed founder Magus LaVey.

We do not evangelize, We do not greet people door to door in white shirts with ties and those who are one of US find US.

The Church of Satan does NOT nor has never needed 'help'.
Our outstanding members speak for themselves and We have wonderful agents who speak with the media to tell the public the 'nitty gritty' of our Religion. Calm down. ;\)

I hope I didn't offend you. This is simply how it is.

The CoS has an outstanding reputation (regardless on who or who does not want to admit it). We are law abiding citizens. We are kind to those who deserve it and productive citizens.

Vampires.......

Look at My links below. Do some reading. \:\)

Edit: I noticed that you mentioned that these 'supposed' Vampires followed the Satanic Bible.

POPPYCOCK.

TSB is written in a way that anyone with a brain can comprehend.

The HOLY Bible (Eve laughs) has been translated in many a different form. Some feel that every word is LITERAL. Some....do what almost most do......they abide by those things written that they agree with and interpret the other parts in ways that allow them to lead their lives as they have always done.

How many religions do We have where the Preacher preaches from a KJV Bible?

Then......there are the re-written ones. Love those.

All of it is horse shit.

I don't have TV. I find it is a waste of time. Anything on that is of any worth is usally teeming with commercials and other horseshit. Any of those talk shows are funny for about five seconds before they get tired. I like TV SHOWS, specifically, but not TV on a whole. If I had cable, it would be locked to Discovery.

Don't believe anything you hear.

Anything.

Especially if it concerns Satanism, which the vast majority of the population DOES NOT understand.

The "Vampires" you have seen on TV are no more real then the plastic teeth they put on in the morning, or the "scary" contact lenses they take out at night. The ones who go the extra mile and drink blood, etc. are devastatingly foolish. As Evil_Eve said, these people will never amount to anything past the fantasy that they envelope themselves in.

It's not that i want them to help the satanic movement, it simply doesn't make things any better. It doesn't need any help no, but still seeing people around willing to jump on it annoys me. I don't like what these stories do to those close to me who do not consider themselves Satanists or wish to spend time learning about the philosophies, that is my main concern. Because of that issues come up which i wont resolve ignorantly. Random people on the street, or internet? It doesn't bother me in the slightest. National television what my mother watches? Of course i'm going to have a dislike to it. I care about my mothers opinions and respect her.

Obviously this doesn't reply to everyone, but i imagine there are Satanists out there who choose not to be open for those reasons. I know people have the right to be open or not, but things like this are an influence towards it. It annoys me in the areas i cherish. Not on the whole.

I had my concerns on the matter, it's how easily they jump to the Satanic Bible that annoyed me. As i said in my other responce, my mother could get the wrong idea about me. One of the few people who affects me to that extent.

This is immediately where you post goes awry. Not only did you watch THIS episode you talk about, but you chose the words, "Been Watching" implying that you've been getting entertainment from that drivel possibly for a while.

Keep in mind the things on talk shows are pure entertainment.

What may quell your interests in watching day-time TV would be to drop your television (or "Telly" as you Brits like to call it) out of a second-story window and don't look back.

Create your own world and live in it. I understand about how Ma' or Pa' may harbor ill feelings against your religion but this is YOUR LIFE. ONE LIFE. ONE CHANCE.

Create the world you wish to live in. Care not what others say or think. You know the truth right? I know you don't wish to upset your Mother. I have the same problem with My Dear Father. HOWEVER, you need not discuss Satanic issues with her. You can remain a solitude Satanist and practice the way you see fit.

Secrets hold power!

know that i have not disregarded your replies, there are very insightful.

I must go back to the cultured issue i brought up initially. I have never seen any of these people around me where i live. England seems to lack variety culture wise, either that or i just never see it. I will not dismiss your words of warning because of this, i may see or experience one of these people sooner or later \:\)

You have a pleasent day too, mine is almost over \:D

I have been to England several times but have never once sought out a Satanist.

There is nothing wrong with your culture. Many Satanist want to keep their religion a secret. Again, I say 'Secrets hold power'.

If you're looking for a mate with a Baphomet Tee Shirt on and yelling 'Hail Satan' after taking a shot of Brandy, then you might yes, be disappointed.

However, We seem to find our own. You don't need others to validate your religion (all though it is quite nice to be with like minded people).

Give it time.

I could care less about such fools. They'll never come around me, much less will I allow such idiots around me, if it's avoidable at the time. They could jump in into an active volcano thinking that there'll be something for them on the "other side", and I wouldn't care.

The only time I would care is when they become a physical threat to my life, or make a threat to me or mine. Otherwise they only harm themselves.

Though I must say, the original post is still laughable. It actually made me think this post should have been in the humor forum. \:\/

Almost always, the only thing that is ever on my TV is the Military Channel, History Channel, The Science Channel, Animal Planet, National Geographic, and the Discover Channel. I rarely watch any other channels. When there's nothing of interest on those channels, the TV ends up being shut off. Almost anything else is pretty worthless. \:\/

Yeah, you probably don't even want to mention TV around here. It is not a respected form of entertainment.

It's not your fault, really. Ricky Lake is much more popular over there than it is here. How could you know?

Have a lovely day.

Your forgot the Food Network. Man, I've baked a lot of goodies and shipped them out to fellow Satanist. I LOVE that channel.

But you're right, I don't watch much of anything else aside from those channels you mentioned.

Amazing, I have over 200 channels (I think) and nothing seems to be on. I usually read.

There are shows that I watch, and I don't give a rat's ass if anyone thinks that it's not a "respected" form of entertainment. There is plenty of programming that can be found on the television that would be of interest to folks here, which is probably why there is a forum dedicated to it.

I wouldn't recommend that anyone come here and edit their preferences or attempt to mold how they come across to try and garner admiration from other people on this board (seeing as how the effort doesn't usually pull the wool over many people's eyes anyway). Every bona fide Satanist that I've ever run across would never see the need to do so, and would laugh at the mere suggestion of it.

It's fairy common, but not in the big conspiracy sense that television's Ricki Lakes or Pat Robertsons would like to think. Bored teenagers who don't get along with the wholesome-looking teenagers invariably gravitate to things like ouija boards, devil worship, a music subculture, or whatever 1) gives them an identity and/or sense of power, 2) gives them an outlet for fantasy, and 3) shocks parents and authority figures.

It's nothing new. Most of them grow out of it once they finally get a date, find a constructive hobby, or move out of their parents house.

Fortunately, we do have one definitive organization that has been there since the actual religion of Satanism itself was formed: The Church of Satan. The COS has been doing media representation now for over 40 years. Representatives have shown up on talk shows like the ones you describe. Of course, nobody wants to hear the real side of the subject; they just want the flashy story. The best we can do is continue to represent the facts and call people on their BS when we see it. There is also the official Church of Satan Youth Communiqué statement that addresses some of the more specific aspects of this for teenagers.

You have to realize that coming up to a bunch of Satanists saying "Hey, I saw this Satanism-related thing on Ricky Lake..." (or Donahue, or Geraldo, etc.), is almost the equivalent of coming up to a group of Jews and saying "Hey, I found this book called Mein Kampf...". There's going to be some eyeball rolling before you finish the sentence.

I gather from your post that you are somewhat new to all this.
May I give you one piece of advice? Ignore such things. Few people who are not Satanists understand what it is. We do not need their help. If you are wise, they cannot hurt you. Don't do the job for them by getting upset by idiots.

I admit it- I watch - Dr. Phil. As of late I watch less and less the shows are becoming more outrageous and less focused on therapy. When I first started college I was taking Intro to Psychology, I was curious and asked my professor (Dr. Borden) what he thought of Dr. Phil. He wasn't aware of who he was, Dr. Borden had better things to do than watch TV. Dr. Borden did offer these inspiring words-
"all I have to say is that if it's on TV it can't be too scientific".

Yes. They are called idiots and they compose a large percent of the human race.

There is nothing in the Satanic Bible that tells the reader to drink blood, so a person saying he became a vampire after reading the book is obviously a nut case. Of course, mentioning a mysterious evil book sounds better on a TV show than saying "I became interested in vampirism after watching that movie with Tom Cruise..."

Talk shows have their place in the world. All the same. Maury, Ricky, Montel, Jerry, whomever. Everyone loves a little shaudenfreude.

Well, I for one didn't know Ricki Lake was still around.

Never trust a talk show when it comes to most topics, especially not something as nuanced and/or forbidden and/or so easily scapegoated as Satanism or the occult. It's about ratings, not about being informative or helpful.

And, as talk shows go, Ricki Lake and Maury Povich are especially prone to wallowing in swill and scandal. (And, of course, Jerry Springer, but everybody knows how bad his show is.)

Vampires. Hmmmm.

I saw a show many years ago about modern day, real life vampires. I think it was on Ripleys Believe it or Not. My memory on this is hazy. They claim that the blood they drink is from blood banks and screened for diseases. Wether it is safe blood or not, the only blood I would ever drink would be in the form of a Bloody Mary (extra spicy)

I totally watch cops. \:D

I guess my point is, or was, I think he was expecting opinions on how Satanists feel about how they're occasionally portrayed in the media and not a commentary on how bad his taste in TV is.

Let me get something across clearly. I do not make a habit of watching talk shows. Today, i watched Ricky Lake while i was on the PC because there was bugger all else on TV. Not that what i watch makes the slighest bit of difference to anything important.

In responce to the various posts, yes i am new to all this, and i have read the newbie article. I also understood Satanism doesn't need anyone elses help before this topic was even concieved. I was speaking to how it might affect me as a Satanist to which i have had some reassuring feedback on the matter which i am greatful for.

Lots of contructive feedback on the whole. Good stuff folks.

Special thanks to Bill_M also for his responce. That helped me out the most of all. \:\)

You can watch whatever you want. If it gives you amusement, go for it.

People with mental problems have been televised blaming Satanism for their idiocy for decades. When you study Satanism, you will know the authentic from the artificial and laugh at the latter. ;\)

Hmmm ... The only vampire I recall reading about in The Satanic Bible was not of the blood-drinking variety.

I did a class called Television as a Popular Culture. It opened my eyes even moreso to what Television stands for.

Maybe I should! ;\)

As far as Judge Judy is concerned, My favorite line of hers is this:

"Don't pee on My leg and tell Me it's raining".
