>> 1. if a registered member could act as a contact point or media representitive without active membership.<<
Not really. Though if someone were to actively display an ability to do so it would contribute to the decision in granting active membership or media representative status.
>> I've read on the active membership application, that the Church of Satan
will train an individual for representing the Church of Satan
, 2. what does this training entail? <<
I'm not sure where you have read that, I haven't seen that. There is no training programme
. But I have always found our High Priest and Priestess to be hugely supportive of all their member's personal pursuits and church activities.
>> 3. Upon submitting the application for a registered member, I see you can pay via paypal, would I have to send the paper application even though I've paid online? <<
A couple of things have changed since I joined. But yes, as far as I know sending in a paper application is still required. This way really helps in giving us an impression of who you are.
>> 4. And lastly, granting my application for active membership is permitted, could I then use the Church of Satan
as a vehicle for my own Satanic pursuits i.e, legal activites and creations other Satanists would be interested in? <<
Indeed. Many of us do! And for those whom membership would harm their personal position in life, membership can remain completely private.
