Read the Satanic Bible by LaVey. If you agree with it's philosophy, join the CoS. That's my recommendation.

The current day CoS has very little to do with Satanism as spelled out in TSB.

Good reasons to join the CoS would be if you have a hero worship complex for LaVey, or if you enjoy ass kissing to hierarchy members.

If you like to think for yourself, you might want to remain unaffiliated.

That's true Dan. There are those of us who are very much "LaVeyan," but not so much CoS... The source is our inspiration, and our loyalties lie there. We need not blindly follow those on the flagship when we can sight into the North Star all by ourselves.

I joined the CoS however ive also put an application in for the First Satanic Church, ive started to become rather disattached from what the adam savage look alike is saying when he is on tv.
Ive really had trouble taking gilmore seriously after my friend decided to point the slight likeness out between him and adam savage off mythbusters.

Let me get this straight...

It's not what he has to say, or what he has done with(to) the CoS, not his unimpressive way of speaking and expressing himself, or his revisionist views of Satanism that turned you off the CoS...oh no..

The real problem is that Gilmore bares some passing resemblance to some minor celebrity. Yes, it's so obvious now...

My main reason for disattaching myself from the CoS is actually because of the fact that its pay $200 dollars and call yourself a satanist. I thought that when Dr Lavey established the church he was after the academics, artists, captains of industry. The cream of the crop of society and the socalites from SF. However now it just seems to be "we'll take your money and send you a card".
I remember reading an interview with some guy out of alkiline trio one of the bands that gilmore likes to bring up when trying to sell the church, they were saying that they only got the cards to piss people off and really they couldnt decide if they were agnostic or athiest, personally I belive there are many other people in the Church of Satan claiming membership for shock value alone, for me i feel like that damages the integrity of the church.

His passing resemblence to a minor celebrity is like a funny icing on the cake for me.

Yes the lack of member screening is also a problem. There are quite a few semi literate morons passing themselves as 'elite' over at lttd. Elite at what, one might wonder.

Anyone who thinks they can buy their way into recognition is a fool indeed.


Thats whats so great about this place. Getting a blue name is based on merit rather than a sales pitch.

The church is comparable to a pyramid scheme, it seems as if its we'll take anyone as long as they are prepared to hand the cash over. I understand that Satanism has some empthisis on materialism however there has to be some limits.
