I do not Admin. for the Church of Satan
, but I will say that you have clamped some tasty bait twixt yer teeth there.
Unfortunately, unless you let it go, you might find yourself dangling on some line above the water gasping for breath and wondering why you are in such a mess.
In my opinion, I would have to state that your time would be better spent being creative, intelligent and goal oriented than fussin' over something which you have no control, due to it being in the past and a matter for the Church only.
I understand feelings of curiosity and/or sympathy that you may have over something that could be worthy of such thought, but seriously...does it look like you need to worry? By the efforts of the Administration and the many members and supporters, I would think that your concerns would be addressed on the merit of the visible achievements and ongoing efforts.
If you really have concerns, ask what you can do to address them and give your share to the effort. That would show a stronger level of support than letting "base concern with no obvious motive" lead your charge.
I often ask myself what I can contribute to enhance my experience of Satanism, and support to the Church that has enhanced my understandings. Worry about the unchangeable is not what I came up with.
