"The Owner of All Infernal Names" by John Zande is not only an engaging read but additionally a wondrous resource for people of all ages. The book is prodigiously extremely well researched and full of pertinent sources by a wide range of authors, historians, and theologians. As I read this book , it was at times painful to see my own life reflected back out of the pages, but the author is skillful and empathetic in pealing off our "masks" and exposing our numerous imperfections and our false conceptions and goals. Ultimately the book teaches us that what is worth pursuing today is timeless and runs counter to what we observe in our superficial and self absorbed culture. This book will give the reader fresh eyes to see reality more clearly, and in so doing, help us live out a more consummating life. This is a highly salutary book for anyone, and should read and re-read. -Rev. Marvin "Knife" Sotelo

11 April, XLIV A.S.: Today we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of
Magus Anton Szandor LaVey.

Hail Doktor!

Anton LaVey gave us all a marvelous gift in his creation of the world’s first carnal religion.

Unlike the rest of existing creeds, his philosophy is devoid of the spiritual. He did not claim to be Satan’s emissary. He did not tell us to seek congress with “higher powers” or supernatural intelligences. Instead, he had the boldness to sweep away all deities and hierarchies of mythological beings, leaving each Satanist alone, but as his or her own god, and what an exhilarating position that is to be in!

And this set of ideas reflects the nature of the Satanist, which means never to be attracted to the myriad flavors of belief systems that have always been the crutch needed by the majority of the human race. The Satanist from birth has a maturity which does not require supernatural or governmental parental figures. We view with pity those seekers after succor from non-existing beings. There will always be humans eager to take advantage of that weakness and they’ll fashion creeds galore for those poor saps.

During that “occult explosion” of the 1960s, the Church of Satan was unique in its rock-solid rejection of faith. Dr. LaVey was no guru looking to sell self-abnegation and submissiveness to “divine” or “infernal” authority. Instead he challenged the daring few to hold dominion over their destinies. And as the founder and leader of what quickly became a worldwide movement, unlike others, he did not become drunk with power, nor did he demand that his colleagues must parrot his aesthetics. He offered those brave enough to share with him the label “Satanist” the freedom to cultivate their own proclivities, and that is truly a rare achievement. His epiphany was one of singularity—that we each stand solitary and must take command of our lives by being our own Gods. That is for the valiant few to whom it comes naturally.

On this day we too stand, each alone but in glorious concert, with those who share our audacity and exhibit the hallmarks of being a Satanist—faithless and proud, as was Dr. LaVey at the founding of the Church of Satan.

We salute you, dear departed Magus, and offer to you in return our greatest possible tribute, the gift of our creations which are wrought with the breadth of our inventiveness expressing the range of our individuality.

Nothing would have made him prouder than to see you all in the exquisite fecundity of your productivity.

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

Hail Satan!
