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:

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.

Separation of What?


In Orlando there are buses bringing folks to the election places called "Souls for Polls." Likewise there are a lot of ministers and lay people giving political information to their followers in a sort of intentionally (not) vague way, as to not actually endorse a specific candidate. For years the biggies, the Roman Catholics and the mainstream Baptists have not endorsed a specific candidate but have made it plain as paper that certain issues and one's support of them can be a one way ticket to H-E-double hockey sticks. Separating religion from politics in an election year is like parting conjoined twins without anesthesia.
That is not to imply that the left is any less affected. Neo Pagans and Wiccans have the not inconsiderable task of trying to find an empty spot on their bumper for another life-changing statement of who to support. Scaring the crap out of anyone with a vagina becomes a full time job, and threats of a mass exodus to Canada is repeated in chants in magic circles from Miami to Jacksonville. The anger at the right for pushing their political agenda from the pulpit, as valid as it is, does not reduce the irony of certain candidates names being burned on paper slips over cauldrons or used to raise cones of power.
We can't help it. Politics and religion have one thing in common. People don't choose the one they think is second best. One chooses their religion because they believe it is accurate and true. One chooses their representatives because they believe they are the same. No one says " I think Mr. X is the better candidate but I wanted something more mediocre." Similarly no one chooses to take Holy Communion if they think transubstantiation is cannibalism. People make a big show of being open minded, qualifying every word with "...it is just my humble opinion," and lots of "...I could be wrong,''s, but it is illogical to assume that they are choosing something that is less than their true and fervent belief.
The First Amendment is a bit of a sticky situation, really. The freedom of religion and the freedom of speech make for interesting bedfellows in an election year. Now, with the seeming acceptance of "Faith Based Initiatives" the waters are muddied even further. The government requests that churches offer help to those in need and provides to assist them in doing that. The caveat is usually that the Church has to use said funds to benefit all, regardless of religious affiliation, but it certainly begs the question of why a church is doing what the government is paying for? Isn't that a sort of tacit approval? 'an endorsement of the church being supported?
I know of only one legal Church that thumbs it's nose at such shenanigans. There may be more, I would welcome hearing that I am wrong, BUT, for now only The Church of Satan,
http://www.churchofsatan.com refuses tax exemption, collects no subsidies, asks no tithes, and in no way hints, suggests, implies, authorizes, demands, or wants it's members to support a specific candidate or issue.
“As has been said many times before, one’s politics are up to each individual member, and most of our members are political pragmatists. They support political candidates and movements whose goals reflect their own practical needs and desires. Our members span an amazing political spectrum, which includes but is not limited to: Libertarians, Liberals, Conservatives, Republicans, Democrats, Reform Party members, Independents, Capitalists, Socialists, Communists, Stalinists, Leninists, Trotskyites, Maoists, Zionists, Monarchists, Fascists, Anarchists, and just about anything else you could possibly imagine. It is up to each member to apply Satanism and determine what political means will reach his/her ends, and they are each solely responsible for this decision. Freedom and responsibility—must be a novel concept for those who aren’t Satanists. We take it in stride. Members who demand conformity from other members to their particular political fetish are welcomed to depart.”
—High Priest Peter H. Gilmore,
from his essay “A Map for the Misdirected”
Is it really possible that the separation Jefferson wrote about in letter is echoed only in a Church that knows no gods, for a people who refuse to kneel? Can it really be that the most patriotic of us, during the election of our president are the most vilified of us all? History has shown us that it isn't just possible, it is the nature of America.

Vampires....The Only Ones Worth a Fuck


     Very few locals here in Central Florida will ever be able to forget the crimes known as the Vampire Murders.  A group of teens led by an anti-social loser (raised by the kind of mother Casey Anthony might have emulated,) violently killed one of the kids’ parents.  Before, during and after, Rod Ferrell, brain trust extraordinaire, vapidly insisted he was a vampire and these bored kids from Eustis played along. 
     Last year another Florida Mensa candidate was in on a murder and again Vampirism was brought up.  Not only that, mind you.    Stephanie Pistey says she believes she's part vampire and part werewolf.
   In all fairness I should probably mention the Florida Christian who murdered someone he thought was a vampire in 2004.
     Long before Bram Stoker various cultures had adopted myths that involved blood drinking and those who do it.  Since Stoker you can’t swing an undead cat without hitting some human who has decided a love of Edwardian ruffles and nightlife makes them a Vampire.  Perhaps they do role playing games.  Maybe they dress beautifully and dance all night.  The vast majority is simply embracing an aesthetic and would not hurt a fly.  Others, sadly, have used the myth to hide in, and worse, to de-evolve in.
     The crimes above, however, were not committed by any genuine religious sect.  They were not even religious or ritual or occult crime.  For a crime to be ritualistic it has to have a ritual/religious purpose, it has to be performed in a religious setting or after a ritual to make the crime scene religious, and the commission of it should demonstrate the religion in question.  For instance, Rod Ferrell murdered Mr. Wendorff in his home while he was sleeping on the couch in front of the television.  There is/was no sacrifice of the couch potato ritual. There were no candles.  There was no full moon, or special holiday.  If this was a Vampire murder because Ferrell thought himself a Vampire then every other crime in the US would be a Christian crime by the same token.
     Yet for the last few decades the Goth movement has developed a Vampire subculture.  That subculture has embraced the dangerous pathology of cutting as a religious tenet.  They call themselves Sanguinarians.  A more appropriate namesake would be victims of Renfields Syndrome, named after Stoker’s bug eating sidekick.  With books by Rice, Brite, and now Meyer, with games like Vampire:  The Masquerade, being a vampire is about as cool as it gets for a kid interested in something other than cheerleading and football.  This can scare the Hell out of a parent.
     Luckily there is a genuine and healthy Vampire Religion.  The Temple of the Vampire has been providing an empowering and life affirming philosophy since 1989.  It is a legal religious organization, run by brilliant and unique people who:
“...believe the value of the individual is superior to that of any group or tribe or nation or species.
In everything we do, we believe in challenging the power of anything opposing individual freedom.
The way we do this is by empowering individuals to achieve independent control over their lives through wealth, health, personal power, and unlimited life extension.
We created a worldwide organization with proven methods for making this possible. For more than twenty years we have been active doing so.
The Temple embraces only those aspects of the Vampire mythos that include a love and respect for all life, physical immortality, individual elegance, proven wisdom, civilized behavior, worldly success, and personal happiness.
The Temple rejects those aspects of the Vampire mythos that are negative including any that are anti-life, anti-social, deathist, crude, gory, self-defeating, or criminal.”
From Temple of the Vampire

     The ToV encourages members to explore two sides of Vampire lifestyle which they term the Dayside and the Nightside.  The Dayside explores the more mundane, but completely necessary life achievements, as well as the traditional Vampire pursuit of immortality:
  1.  Physical immortality.
  2. Emergency survival.
  3. Physical health.
  4. Self-understanding.
  5. Communication skills
  6. Personal finance

Conversely, the more esoteric side to the ToV exists in the Nightside explorations:

“Our esoteric (Nightside) teachings are found in five consecutive books beginning with The Vampire Bible and do not require Temple membership but do require a Nightside Connection…The Nightside Connection enables you to tap into the wisdom, guidance, and skills of the truly advanced Vampire. This esoteric Connection is the source of power that makes the Temple completely unique…….Nightside Vampirism is not merely absorbing Lifeforce, the esoteric energy of life that all living things radiate. Vampirism is much more than just taking in more Lifeforce from others. That is a common ability.”
     The Temple offers members everything from an online message board to interact with Vampires all over the world, to some of the most widely recognized beautiful jewelry in the entire occult world. The ToV literature is powerful and vast.               
While active membership is reserved for those 18 and over, teens will find basic membership more than busy enough while waiting for that birthday.  The Temple of the Vampire encourages study over blind faith, learning over worship.
     Not merely satisfied to dress up and be gloomy the ToV emulates this creed:
I am a Vampire.
I worship my ego and I worship my life, for I am the only God that is.
I am proud that I am a predatory animal and I honor my animal instincts.
I exalt my rational mind and hold no belief that is in defiance of reason.
I recognize the difference between the worlds of truth and fantasy.
I acknowledge the fact that survival is the highest law.
I acknowledge the Powers of Darkness to be hidden natural laws
through which I work my magic.
I know that my beliefs in Ritual are fantasy but the magic is real,
and I respect and acknowledge the results of my magic.
I realize there is no heaven as there is no hell,
and I view death as the destroyer of life.
Therefore I will make the most of life here and now.
I am a Vampire.
Bow down before me.
     This column is about alternative religions, so those somehow offended by the notions of godless religions need only to open their minds and accept that they chose to read this fully aware of the meaning of the word ALTERNATIVE.  The ToV is a legal religious organization that makes the following demand of their potential members:  “…you promise to refrain from criminal activity, physical blood drinking, and discussing the Temple with the public.”  Equally important is the statement found repeatedly on ToV literature and on their website:  “Within lies fact and fancy, truth and metaphor. Discriminate with care.”  Now, that is the kind of religious honesty we could all use more often!
    These are the real thing.  These Vampires practice a philosophy and lifestyle that transcends silly costumes and bizarre dentistry.  These people can teach adherents magic, finances, survivalism (not the kind that requires a “compound” and a dislike for any particular race of people,) history, and the list goes on and on.  I have spent 32 years learning about the various religio/philosophic groups in this world, and so many are based on fictitious and/or mythological entities/archetypes.  Many come to the world of the Occult and alternatives due to falling in love with a particular mythos.  Sadly, if you actually follow these fictions to their mythological conclusion you will end up in jail, dead, or psychologically damaged.  The ToV has found the way to allow Vampires to live and thrive and grow and to do it all without regret on any level.
 How cool is that?
