Darkest greetings. I am a registered CoS member. A noted site of so-called Crowleyan "Thelemites" is currently posting Dr. LaVey's Satanic Bible as part of their Mr. Crowley-related "Bibliographia Thelemica." When I made them notice on their forum that this book has no part in their religion, and that LaVeyan Satanism is very different from their spook-in-the-sky philosophy, and that we are not in the least concerned with "trafficking with entities from outer space" (sic) - read Kenneth Grant's books for a proof of this statement - they failed to acknowledge that I was right, and I was soon banned from that site (good riddance). What do you think? Do they have the intellectual right (not to mention the legal right) to post LaVey's most important work as "Thelemic"?

They are almost certainly also infringing copyright laws by presenting the book online.

Please inform Magistra Nadramia at administration@churchofsatan.com of where they are posting the book up.

They are just posting the book's cover and the title, not the whole book online. In other words my question was mainly concerned with they mentioning it as part of Crowley's legacy and of their religion, than with copyright laws.

As far as I am concerned they can do and think what they want regarding their tin pot religious hoo haa.

I don't see what purpose discussing them, or Crowley, here serves.

Anyone here who knew Dr. LaVey or who has read him extensively will know what his opinions of Crowley were.

By the way, the owner of this board requests we make a formal introduction in the requisite forum before we begin posting.

They are too dumb to tell the difference.

At least they are wearing it on their sleeve.

For those with the power to read, the above web page explains it all quite clearly I should think.
