I’ve been studying Satanism for a long time now. I’ve read all of Dr. LaVey’s books and many on the CoS non-fiction reading list, plus Lucifer Rising by Gavin Baddeley. I just finished The Church of Satan
, reading about the early days of the organization when the “carnival of flesh” was in full swing and how it eventually went underground, and became even more misanthropic during the 80s. I have read Peter Gilmore’s state of the church also, but I was wondering from the members what state they think the church is in. Yes, a general question with probably heavily biased answers, but I’m interested.
One day I will join the church, but only when I feel I’ve gained a proper foothold in this world, and I still have college to finish. Till then, Hail Satan!
