I am myself new to this forum and recently to, discovered the books of Mr. LaVey.
Since I was very young I always had different ideas about the religion I was raised in (I was raised in Portugal where almost everybody is Catholic). I am in the process of reading The Satanic Bible and all the radings from The Church of Satan and most likely becoming a member.
You seem to be a very cult and intelligent person, and I love having conversations with people like that ... And the fact that you have a french connection, pleases me to. My mother is french and cookes amazingly well. I guess it is a french thing. She is in Portugal, I am by myself here in the United States, and I damn miss her cooking ....
I just wanted to say hello and congratulate you on your great introduction, and I look forward to some interesting conversations ....
