Dear Priesthood of Mendes,

I trust this finds you well.

Before asking the intended question, I suspect that you get a number of people seeking to waste your time by asking questions that have little relevance to Satanism, I would therefore like to reasure you on two issues.

1) I have searched high and low for the answer to this question before posting it on this board.
2) The answer will contribute significantly to my serious consideration of seeking affiliation with the Church of Satan.

Being as Satanism as a philosophy has in many ways been influenced by it, what is the Church's current stance on Thelema and the writings of Crowley?

Furthermore while I sympathize with Satanism's consensus regarding monotheistic orthodoxies, eastern mysticism, pseudo-Satanism and Wicca, what is the Church's stance concerning magical movements such as the Golden Dawn and Rosicrucianism? (ie they influenced Crowley and therefore indirectly influenced LaVey's work)

I look forward to hearing from you.
