When I read “Satan as the good guy” texts I of course came across the two main satanic groups Church of Satan and The Satanic Temple.
Neither group actually believes in Satan (or God for that matter) but they both use him as a symbol of defiance.
Church of Satan is of the “Do what you will, there are no rules, but try not to be a dick” mindset, while The Satanic Temple is more of the “Try to make the world a better place, respect other’s freedom, fight back against oppressors” mindset. Both also have a great respect for science.
Church of Satan is responsible for the Satanic Bible and has rituals and black masses as symbolic gestures, while The Satanic Temple mostly just have “rituals” for fun, like their pink mass where gay people kissed over the gravestones of noted homophobic people. The Satanic Temple’s main thing is fighting for women’s right to abortion, protecting children form corporal punishment, gay people’s right to marry and religious freedom.
They are not entirely Tumblr friendly though because they believe that you can say whatever you want, even if it’s deeply offensive, as long as you don’t harm people. So you can say women should have no rights, but if you try to take their rights away there will be trouble.
And if you’re wondering where all the goths went, look no further than the Satanic groups.
2. Assemble devices for ritual; light candles and shut out all outside light sources; place
parchments to right and left of the altar as indicated.
3. If a woman is used as the altar she now takes her position - head pointing south, feet
4. Purification of the air by ringing of the bell.
5. “Invocation to Satan” and “Infernal Names” which follow (see Book of Leviathan) are
now read aloud by priest. Participants will repeat each Infernal Name after it has been
said by priest.
6. Drink from chalice.
7. Turning counter-clockwise, the priest points with the sword to each cardinal point of
the compass and calls forth the respective Princes of Hell: Satan from the south,
Lucifer from the east, Belial from the north, and Leviathan from the west.
8. Perform benediction with the phallus (if one is used).
9. Priest reads aloud appropriate invocation for respective ceremony: Lust, Compassion,
or Destruction (see Book of Leviathan).
10. In the case of a personalised ritual this step is extremely important. Solitude is
compatible with the expressing of the most secret desires, and no attempt to “hold
back” should be made in the acting out, verbalising, or casting of images pertaining to
your desires. It is at this step that your “blueprint” is drawn, wrapped, and sent off to
the recipient of your working.
To Summon One For Lustful Purpose Or Establish
A Sexually Gratifying Situation:
Leave the area of the altar and remove yourself to that place, either in the same room
or without, that will be most conducive to the working of the respective ritual. Then,
fashion whatever imagery you possibly can that will parallel in as exact a way possible
the situation towards which you strive. Remember, you have five senses to utilise, so
do not feel you must limit your imagery to one. Here are devices that may be
employed (either alone, or in any combination):
a. graphic imagery such as drawings, paintings, etc.
b. written imagery such as stories, plays, descriptions of desires and eventual
outcome of same.
c. acting out the desire in tableau or playet, either as yourself or portraying the
role of the object of your desire (transference), using any devices necessary to
d. any odours relative to the desired person or situation.
e. any sounds or background noises conducive to a strong image.
Intense sexual feeling should accompany this step of the ritual, and after sufficient
imagery is obtained, as strong an orgasm as is possible should serve as climax to this
step. This climax should be attained using any masturbatory or auto-erotic means
necessary. After orgasm is obtained, return to the location of the altar and proceed
with step #11.
To Insure Help Or Success For One Who Has Your
Sympathy Or Compassion (Including Yourself)
Remain in close proximity of the altar and with as vivid a mental image as possible of
the person you wish to help (or intense self-pity), state your desire in your own terms.
Should your emotions be genuine enough, they will be accompanied the shedding of
tears, which should be allowed to flow without restraint. After this exercise in
sentiment is completed, proceed to step #11.
f. the sticking of pins or nails into a doll representing your victim; the doll may
be cloth, wax, wood, vegetable matter, etc.
g. the creation of graphic imagery depicting the method of your victim’s
destruction; drawings, paintings, etc.
h. the creation of a vivid literary description of your victim’s ultimate end.
i. a detailed soliloquy directed at the intended victim, describing his torments and
j. mutilation, injury, infliction of pain or illness by proxy using any other means
or devices desired.
Intense, calculated hatred and disdain should accompany this step of the ceremony,
and no attempt should be made to stop this step until the expended energy results in a
state of relative exhaustion on the part of the magician. When the exhastion ensues,
proceed to step #11.
11. (a) If requests are written, they are now read aloud by the priest and then burned in the
flames of the appropriate candle. “Shemhamforash!” and “Hail Satan!” is said after
11. (b) If requests are given verbally, participants (one at a time) now tell them to the
priest. He then repeats in his own words (those which are most emotionally
stimulating to him) the request. “Shemhamforash!” and “Hail Satan!” is said after each
12. Appropriate Enochian Key is now read by the priest, as evidence of the participants’
allegiance to the Powers of Darkness.
13. Ringing of the bell as pollutionary, and then the words “SO IT IS DONE” are spoken by the
Do NOT sacrifice animals, anyone that does this are worthy of being sacrificed themselves. Only kill animals for food and self defence. Therefore, hunting for sport, killing for decoration or killing for clothes is not allowed and fucked up.
