My name is Shane and I have been a lurker on the Letters to the Devil for about as long as I can remember. I believe around the year 2000 is when I started coming to the board (maybe a tad bit later). I have never made a profile for various reasons. I am a pretty shy individual. When I heard of Anton Lavey's death I was about 14 years of age. I grew up on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. My parents made me go to church to try and put some sort of good influence into my life. I always questioned many things and eventually they told my mother politely to quit bringing me. I shortly thereafter discovered The Satanic Bible. I read the book and identified very closely with it. I have purchased and studied all of Lavey's books, as well as, Magus Peter H. Gilmore's The Satanic Scriptures upon release. I have a bachelor's degree from Southern Illinois University and am currently working on my graduate degree. I am here primarily to continue to read and participate on the boards.

Hail Satan!

That made me really laugh. I have a similar background. My parents also forced me into attending church. I'd do anything to try and avoid going to the four hour Pentecostal church services every Sunday. Eventually I started going to the toilet and climbing out the window.

In the end they all gave up.

Your academic studies are obviously going very well.

Really a very nice introduction. Welcome.

(That is a very long time to have been lurking though) grin

I usually just came here in my spare time to keep updated and use the forum as a bit of a study tool. It has been a long time lurking.

Howdy.

helloyellojello,

Sooooo, why that screen name? I ask because, even though I loved the book, I will forever associate the name (American Psycho) with Christian Bale doing that awesomely adorable shimmy.



Hip to be square, baby. grin

Anyhoo, willkommen, bienvenue, welcome, c'mon in, smile
