Never A Dull Moment: The Good Old Days Weren't Always Good and Tomorrow Ain't as Bad as it Seems.......................................................

     I have been so lucky. For a over decade I decided to lay fairly low and as a result I was wrapped in the loving and strong arms of The Church of Satan. In addition to allowing me to stay despite my highly embarrassing presence, they elevated me and allowed me to continue the public relations work that means so much to me, and on my terms, as well.  I made them a target for humiliation and they made me feel like I wasn't a pariah but a valued member.  How could I ever be anything but grateful?

     A few years back I was doing research and felt strongly that I could substantiate my position that the Church of Satan was the first actual Satanic church in history.  Naturally there was no idea that others outside the CoS would agree, but that did not change the position.  Very simply since prior to the formation of the Church of Satan there had never been, in all of history, a voluntary group of people who had joined for ritual and dogma who called themselves Satanists, Satanism therefore was codified and created by the Church of Satan.  Occasionally someone brainy would argue those points with me from an academic/scholarly standpoint.  Very occasionally.  Rarely, even.

     Much more often however the argument would be that this can't be right because I am saying/writing it and I:

1.  'am a battered woman (prior to 20020,
2.  'am a voluntarily battered woman who married badly twice (1981 1992), 
3   'had my kids taken away  for 5 months in 2002 for being married to and divorcing a pedophile,and the authorities needed to make sure all was stable after almost a decade of Hell,
4.  'had lost my wealthy show biz family to death and am no longer is wealthy,
5.  'don't care about my kids because I reported and helped convict my pedophile husband when she discovered his crimes--obviously she should have known because criminals always commit their sins in front of an audience.  I also encouraged and was deeply content when the CoS proved their commitment to justice by expelling the criminal,
6.  'can't be a witch because out of 34 years of public participation in alternative/Pagan/Occult religions I had humiliation, abuse and pain for 8 of them,
7  'can't be a decent spokesperson/teacher/representative despite thousands of interviews, students, lectures, television and radio appearances and testifying as an expert witness as named by the state of Florida Attorney General as well as teaching in police academies to stop the harassment of ALL members of alternative religions-including those I disagree with-- because at times my personal life was in the crapper,
8.  'am a lousy example of Satanism/witchery/life because I was so worried that my daughter would suffer because of my mistakes and I had to do anything, including embarrass the Hell out of myself, to make sure my child would not lose 48,000 in scholarship money I lacked because I did not have $16,000 in the bank at that moment (no doubt all my accusers do,)
9. 'got fired from a mainstream online newspaper because I wrote something Satanic in the alternative religion column.  I had the audacity to point out that Westboro Baptists are disgusting not in spite of but because of following the Holy Bible.  My shitty writing was not the issue.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....yup.  'pretty fucking embarrassing.  'worse still--that isn't the half of it.  'Never a dull moment, and I spend a great deal of time wishing for dull moments.

In the last year I lost my Mom and my best friend, both on the heels of other stuff I mistakenly thought of as tragedies.  My perspective changed.  I can only be embarrassed if people find me interesting.  I can only be humiliated if I hide in a corner and let others take from me the things that matter.

I was 17 years old when I first did PR/education to help those who walk a different path do so without getting hit by anything that can't comprehend the greatness of a country founded upon a notion of freedom of as well as from religion.  I had been raised on stage and took my understanding of performance and the freedom my beatnik atheist parents gave me with the knowledge incessant reading and a family of Episcopal, Quakers, Catholics, and Jews provided.  I saw alternative religions as the last allowed prejudice and in my gung ho naivete I thought I could fix it.  Some days I still do. 

So yes, D. Burke of today---most recent in a long line of mean people who want to stop my points by attacking me personally, you're too late.  I have paid in tears and blood and loss for my mistakes.  You can't out me when my whole life has been lived on TV, in magazines, in legal documents and online.  All you and your ilk can do is prove that you can't use logic or reason to defeat my positions.  You can only try to personally hurt a 50 year old woman who's life has been a whole lot of things, but NEVER, EVER boring.  

Hail, Satan!!!!!!

I'm Back Just in Time to Hate Someone New!!!!!!!

As a member of the Church of Satan’s Priesthood and host of Radio Free Satan’s Confessions of a Wicked Witch, I want to help people understand the difference between real Satanists (The Church of Satan) and fakes and phonies looking for media attention (Temples of Satan/Joy of Satan.)

Ten Ways the Public can Identify Fake Satanists who want to be on TV:
  1. 1.        Fake Satanists are what real Satanists label “Shit-Disturbers.”  Real Satanists are too busy living in the here and now and worshiping their own precious lives to bother Christians about such silliness  as holiday decor.
  2. 2.       Fake Satanists look for the scum of the Earth to build their ranks.  Real Satanists  wanting to be an Active Member of the Church of Satan must fill out a long questionnaire and pay a one time fee of $200.00
  3. 3.       Fake Satanists quote The Satanic Bible and other works by Satanism founder Anton Szandor LaVey and then insult him and his memory by claiming they are the new or better way.  Real Satanists study those works, apply them to their lives, and are grateful for the man who codified the first and only Satanic religion in the world.
  4. 4.       Fake Satanists seek to destroy the United States Constitution and bring religion into the schools by disseminating false information about Satanism into the Public Schools.  Real Satanists are good parents who don’t need the schools to do their job for them.
  5. 5.       Fake Satanists actually call themselves heretics.  Real Satanists know that to be a heretic one has to believe in and then subvert Christianity.  Satanists do not.
  6. 6.       Fake Satanists seek donations and pretend their religion is a job.  Real Satanists believe in excelling in the real world with real creations and jobs.  Real Satanists pay a one time membership fee and then buy and sell, working hard to get what they desire, and being the very best in whatever endeavor they choose.
  7. 7.       Fake Satanists require a legal fund that they beg donations for—one must guess because they support/court/embrace lawbreakers.  Real Satanists report law breaking members to the authorities and excommunicate them from the Church of Satan, without mercy.
  8. 8.       Fake Satanists try to use Satanism to moderate and enter the realm of politics.  Real Satanists are members of a church where political stances are strictly personal and the church itself has no stance.
  9. 9.       Fake Satanists will ride the coattails of any group to get their name in the news.  Real Satanists are saddened that the real news is the manipulation of some Christian Heretics which will do no good for Satanists but give those opposed to alternative religions even more fodder for hatred.’ Good job!
  10. 10.   To be fair this  real Satanist will point out that this rant is primarily about the “Temples of Satan” and as silly, misguided and manipulative they are they are nowhere near as bad as the Heretical (aka Satanaflipperoos) devil worshipers created in the Christian pews who actually believe in real devils and demons,  believed the myths and now engage in blood rites,  and support nothing except the opposite of Christianity—making them, no matter what the think,  followers of God.

And how will you ever get me to curse for you if you don't hear my confessions, hmmmm?




Don't leave me missing you!!!

I'm on Radio Free Satan, I'm on Radio Free Satan, na na na , And You're Not!!!!!!!!!

   

on Radio Free Satan


 I am so excited.  Bill M. finally got all my hints and produced my show,  If ya'll want comedy watch me try to figure out the technical side of producing a podcast----you would swear I was born with Trisomy 23 and somehow managed to live.  There is actual slobber involved/  Yet Bill came to my rescue and I don't hate our first show, which, for me, is a miracle.  I always hate any performance of my own.
     Less than five years ago the way to reach out was this--a blog.  Today it is a podcast or Internet radio. Technology and communications change so quickly that it is impossible to keep up,  Still, it doesn't take me long to find substantial and good reasons to climb up on my soap box and play Cassandra who had the gift of unwavering perfect prophecy, and the curse that no one would believe her.  I relate to that bitch.  A bunch.
     Africa is now hosting the 1980's Satanic Panic---and they are so much more fun than America ever was!!  Now, please understand that I haven't a racist bone in my body BUT I cannot help but believe that Africans in some parts of Africa are savages.  Truly,  If you eat primates and/or cut off clits, you're a savage.  And, yes, I know it is their culture.  Great.  They have a savage culture.  Anywhoooooo, culture be damned, they have some mighty fine ignorance in the shape of what they perceive Satanism to be......check out these real headlines:

New Book Links Karl Marx to Satanism



Family let down by Satanism killing sentencing

2013-10-11 21:50

Lesbianism, Satanism rock school   (at first I thought this was a school for Lesbian Satanists who played guitar)



     In the countries in Africa that are just starting to really develop this seems to be something akin to growing pains.  People, when confronted by an entirely new world, often seek a scapegoat to put things in a perspective of black and white that they understand.  Of course they actually play Salem circa 1690's.  It ain't the kind of place to go spread the genuine Satanic gospel unless burning to death sounds like fun to you. I mean, shit!  If they will machete to death a middle aged unarmed woman for trying to protect gorillas, or more recently elephants, how do you think I'd go over?  "Hi you fucking Savages, you!    I'm here to tell you that everything you believe and everything those nice white folks with the gruel believe is BULLSHIT...um, wait, water buffalo shit!  And girls, that knife between the legs thing can easily go both ways...I'm just sayin'.    And by the way.  I'm going to curse the living Hell out of each and everyone of you poaching Motherfuckers if it takes every full moon for the rest of my life!  You best hope your name doesn't end up in a paper or online because if it does  I will avenge the smallest monkey to the biggest bull elephant and everything in between.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!!!!

     I have made it plain on Confessions of a Wicked Witch     that we will be doing some cursing/hexing/black magic/retributive meditations on the show for both myself and my listeners.  I want to curse people who deserve it.  Now, no doubt there are some airy faery types, or so much worse, pseudo intellectual types that will ask me how can I possibly know if someone actually deserves it, how do I have the balls to play God.  I say, who is playing?  I'm pretty sure I can discern righteous from petty AND, face it, Nature will out.   

     No curse can make a person do something their own nature wouldn't permit, anyway.  No hex can make the good, bad or the bad, good.  Nature has no problem with you working through various archetypes or metaphor---it has given us Satan, the one who never kneels and who refuses to forgive!    

     There will be three kinds of curses offered on    Confessions of a Wicked Witch.
  • Cursing or Hexing a public figure.  Now, let's get something straight, the Church of Satan has a strict no political position policy which means I won't be cursing Obama or Boehner.  I won't zap Hilary.  In short, no national, current political figures will be hexed..  However, if the Chief of Police in your town has said there is no such thing a marital rape and he won't arrest anyone for it, well, he better duck.  Capiche?
  •   Cursing or Hexing someone who has done you a specific wrong.  Exes, co-workers, local nutters who piss in your yard, mothers-in-law.  Give me as much information as possible.  I need to feel the indignation to really give it to them. Send it to wickedwitch@radiofresatan.
  • Finally, there is a personal curse that costs money.  Do I look like I miss many meals?  No.  Being a pro Witch pays like shit, so don't be surprised that if you want a personal service it will cost.  
    I also look forward to cursing folks that I despise!  I am so glad you guys will be with me!!!
Hail, Satan!

Bad Girl Part II: Thank You, Mr. Prophet


Satanic Witch Supports Westboro Baptists Claim of Biblical Authority


For several years I have been writing here explaining how alternative religions are the same and in what ways they are different from mainstream religions. To begin the new year I thought I would take a timely issue and apply religious philosophy to it from our alternative point of view. Then I saw my hometown on TV, and the Catholic Church that I grew up next to, and the timely issue was decided. As I did some prep research though,the Westboro Baptist Church, reared it's ugly head, and I prepared to join the bandwagon and slam them for being the horrible bigots that they are. Unfortunately, as their hatred is all based directly on the Biblical word of God, all I can say is that they are behaving like true Christians.

You see my Mom grew up in Manhattan and Newtown, Connecticut. I spent many a summer swimming at family friend's in Sandy Hook, proper. The girl across the street from me growing up in Katonah, New York was killed by Adam Lanza as she performed the noble profession of teaching. I'm not implying my grief has more meaning than anyone else's, but it was mind blowing to watch a funeral procession on TV walk by my childhood home. And now some Christians have once again muddied things up by protesting and claiming these horrible deaths were the work of their God. And you want to know something that I can probably only say because I am a Satanic Witch? IF I believed in the God of the Holy Bible, as it is written, IF I did, he is exactly the sort of horrible monster who would allow such a thing. Luckily I believe in no gods, no devils, no demons, no angels, no hobbits, no bigfoot, and no faeries.

So, given that I hate everything the Westboro Baptist Church stands for how can I possibly be, even metaphorically in agreement with them? The answer is The Holy Bible.

How many times has the average Wiccan, Pagan, Satanist, Druid, or Atheist been asked why they haven’t dropped to their knees and embraced traditional religion? How many times does the average non-traditional religionist have to endure the insults, the incredulous jaw drops, the disdain of the mainstream who can’t fathom why anyone would find what they believe in to be abhorrant? Surely it is easier to go with the flow. With all the love and eternal life and harps and such, why would anyone not sign up? Answer: The Holy Bible...and yet, for the sake of peace , even those who do not drink the Christian kool-aid often still seem quite supportive of it. Most Neo-pagans of today spend buckets of time claiming, most truthfully, that they have no problem with Christianity, they aren’t anti-Christian, just non-Christian.

And when it comes to Westboro Baptist most Christians of today cannot stand the notion that Westboro Baptist Church is Christian at all. They will claim that the acts of this Church is one of hate and not in line with Christian theology. Yet at the risk of pissing off everyone, let me take the decidedly un PC view and say that Neo-Pagans should be proud to be non, or even anti-Christian, and less popular still, that the Westboro Baptist Church is Biblically Christian, hate and all.

Gays, women, ethnic minorities, everyone wants to believe that because they are Christian, Christianity is good and loving and kind, and those who quote the Bible’s more angry passages are somehow misguided. That just isn’t so. The Bible is a hateful book, full of vitriol and hate and prejudice and a vengeful, jealous God who makes it plain as day that he will mess you up good and proper if you don’t play his particular brand of ball. How anyone can read the book and determine that it is about love is akin to believing “Fifty Shades of Grey” is about interior design.

All over the western world Christian churches are ignoring Biblical teaching in an effort to become more open and welcoming to the vast diversity of humanity. Amid the strains of Amazing Grace people are being treated appropriately and with respect among the very pews that previously were unwelcoming and unkind. It IS the right thing to do, no question. However it is not the Christian thing to do:
Lev 20:13 "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death." 1 Cor 6:9 "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals" 1 Tim 1:9-10 "realizing the fact that (civil) law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers" Rom 1:26-27 "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error."

NOW, IF ANY OF THAT IS ACTUALLY SAYING “GOD LOVES HOMOSEXUALS AND WANTS THEM TO LOVE WHO THEY CHOOSE,” I SEEM TO BE MISSING IT. If every single Biblical quote about homosexuality is a mistranslation, than how can anything else be perceived to be correctly translated? Why, why, why, is it so important for homosexuals to get the seal of approval from a religion that can never be both true to the Holy Bible and be supportive of their love? Those things are Biblically mutually exclusive.

Likewise women. Long ago I decided not to join the club that said my curiosity or desire for knowledge was the root of all evil. I did not want to sign on with the guy who decided to punish an entire gender by making the miracle of birth agonizing. I did not want my daughters kneeling before someone who did not want them to have the freedom to speak in matters spiritual, or demanded that they subjugate themselves before anyone with a hanging Johnson. Instead of joining me, however, the girls who agreed with my assessment instead decided to change the religion by pretending that Jesus changed all the rules by being nice to a hooker. They ignored the hatred of women and instead have altered the thing they claim is the word of God.

I disagree with every hateful thing Westboro Baptist says because it is the message that is wrong, but the message being delivered is straight out of the Holy Bible. The truth is people are either too comfortable or habituated or just plain lying to themselves. They want Christmas, and fellowship, and nifty Bible stories that bond them with their culture, and if that means lying about what Christianity really is, so be it. Every day I will read about how Westboro Baptists are not real Christians when , if the Holy Bible is the defining factor, they absolutely are. It is actually the majority of nice, decent, mainstream Christians who are in violation of their religion, and all someone like me can do is be both shocked, and glad.

My religion, Satanism, does not recruit or proselytize. Wiccans don’t go door to door and Pagans don’t leave tracts by the car wash….yet. Regardless there are thousands of schools of thought, religions, philosophies, and lifestyles that allow an individual to be true to themselves and their ideals. Changing Christianity has not changed the Holy Bible, it has simply caused more hypocrisy. Don’t support the Westboro Baptist Church, don’t support the hateful, prejudicial, and genocidal book called The Holy Bible

I Have Been A Really Bad Girl.....really,no really

     As my readers know I also write for examiner.com.  I was appointed way back in 2009-2010 as the examiner for alternative religions for Orlando and Central Florida.   Many of my articles from that site have wound up here, and vice versa.
    I was deeply affected by Sandy Hook due to memories and attachments to places and people involved.  I had then been outraged, like every decent human in the world that Westboro Baptist wasthreatening protests and funeral appearances, but....
     my article I wrote for examiner.com pointed out the obvious:

  • Westboro Baptist Church have disgusting viewpoints.
  • Those viewpoints are completely Christian.
  • That Christians who are decent folks are always trying to pretend that the Bible is something it really isn't, NICE, HUMANE, KIND, LOVING, and all other positive things that Christians want to believe.
  • That Westboro Baptist is REAL Christianity:  Cruel, bigotted, vindictive and viscious.
  • That the Holy Bible makes plain it's hatred for gays and women and it makes no sense for gays and women to want to be Christian, it is masochistic.
  • That gays and women are lying to themselves anytime they pretend the Christian god loves or supports them.  The Bible makes it plain, he does not.
  • That Westboro Baptists belief that God causes atrocious acts are more in keepng with the Holy Bible than not.  
  • I quoted the Bible thoroughly to defend my position.
  • I implored all decent people to be proud of themselves and not accept the cultural norm that hates them, gays for who they love, and women for being curious and not be slaves.
     This got me fired.
This is the entirity of the explanation:

So....hmmmmmmmm...naturally I could not allow these people to both censor me and have complete privacy while doing it, so visualize one well manicured middle finger pointing upwards, alone, while I pasted the above into this blog.  After all, he did say that was what my work was more suited to, right?

Get this, though, I do not have a single final draft of the offending article.  I am asking anyone who read it in the brief time before it was removed  to be kind enough to send it to me .

In the interim I am playing with the rough drafts until I get it right, or wrong....whatever.
