The Faustian Pact

A Faustian Pact is a link and bargain between a human and Satan or a lesser demon. The latter offers specific services and fulfills the individual human's wish or desire in compensation of consuming the said human's soul after the contract is completed.
The demon might consume the human's soul, after fufilling the wishes of the human, at even the cost of their life.
To fulfill something tantalising and difficult to accomplish, such as a satisfying revenge, a human is required to give up their soul as payment.

It is also understood that some individuals make this type of pact just as a sign of recognising the Devil as their master, in exchange for nothing.

The pact can be oral or written. An oral pact is made by means of invocations, conjurations, or rituals to attract the demon. Once the conjurer thinks the demon is present, he/she asks for the wanted favour and offers his/her soul in exchange, and no evidence is left of the pact; but according to some witch trials and inquisitions that were performed, even the oral pact left evidence, namely the diabolical mark, an indelible mark where the marked person had been touched by the Devil to seal the pact. The mark could be used as a proof to determine that the pact was made. It was also believed that on the spot where the mark was left, the marked person could feel no pain. A written pact consists in the same forms of attracting the demon, but includes a written act, usually signed with the conjurer's blood (although sometimes was also alleged that the whole pact had to be written with blood). Forms of these include contracts or simply signing your name into Satan's Red Book. The Malleus Maleficarum discusses several alleged instances of pacts with the Devil, especially concerning women. It was considered that all witches and warlocks had made a pact with a demon, especially with Satan.
According to demonology, there is a specific month, day of the week, and hour to call each demon, so the invocation for a pact has to be done at the right time. Also, as each demon has a specific function, a certain demon is invoked depending on what the conjurer is going to request.
In the narrative of the Synoptic Gospels, Jesus is offered a series of bargains by the Devil, in which He is promised worldly riches and glory in exchange for serving the Devil rather than God. After Jesus rejects the Devil's temptation, He embarks upon his journey as the Messiah.

National Gnosticism and Social Darwinism

The absymal failure of the Faustian Circle with its proclamation of "National Gnosticism and Social Darwinism" in the context of an "Occult-Fascist" synthesis has witnessed many fascinated by such ideas evolve steadily in the direction of Aleister Crowley's brand of "magick." 

Aleister Crowley was himself the head of the German-based Ordo Templi Orientis, as well as being a depraved diabolist who indulged his foul appetites in a descending spiral of disgusting decadence.

Over the years the original medieval Templars became tainted with Islamic mysticism, and Gnosticism was embraced by some while in Palestine. They became further contaminated by a sect known as the Assassins. The Order of Knights Templar inevitably degenerated, and some are believed to have engaged in the practice of Phallicism, or sex worship, and Satanism - venerating Baphomet, the idol of Luciferians. 

The crime of sodomy was eventually a rite of Templar initiation. Such masonic ritual is Luciferian worship, despite their very clever attempts to hide this fact. The Grand Master at the time - when King Philip IV of France tried and executed key members - was named Jacques de Molay. Since de Molay was Grand Master of the Knights Templar, it can be assumed he was also involved in these satanic and homosexual acts. 

“DeMolay” is somewhat disturbingly one of the orders of Freemasonry for young men.

Baphomet (from Medieval Latin Baphometh, Baffometi, Occitan Bafometz) is a term originally used to describe an idol or other deity that the Knights Templar were accused of worshipping, and that subsequently was incorporated into disparate occult and mystical traditions. It appeared as a term for a pagan idol in trial transcripts of the Inquisition of the Knights Templar in the early 14th century. The name first came into popular English usage in the 19th century, with debate and speculation on the reasons for the suppression of the Templars.
Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with a "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Eliphas Levi which contains binary elements representing the "sum total of the universe" (eg male and female, good and evil etc.). Baphomet, of course, is principally associated with diabolism due to the adoption of it as a symbol by the Church of Satan.
The Sigil of Baphomet was originally a goat pentagram that appeared in the book La Clef de la Magie Noire by French occultist Stanislas de Guaita in 1897. This symbol would later become synonymous with Baphomet, and is commonly referred to as the Goat of Mendes or Sabbatic Goat.

Samael is a figure in the Talmud and Lilith is a female demon in Jewish mythology. The Hebrew letters at the five points of the pentagram spell out Leviathan, a mythic creature in Jewish lore. This symbol was later adapted by the Church of Satan in 1969 and officially named as the Sigil of Baphomet.

Aleister Crowley was initiated into Freemasonry on 8 October 1904, presumably passed the following month, and raised on 17 December 1904. He was the Secretary of Quatour Coronati Lodge. Crowley had already been initiated into an irregular form of Scottish Rite Masonry in Mexico City in 1900 and this ultimately led to his plethora of high degree systems. This included both the systems of Memphis and Mizraim and the Antient and Primitive Rites. Details of this can be found in Crowley’s own Confessions. This is turn led to his contact with Theodore Reuss and the OTO. which, as history has shown, had a profound affect and was among the most important moves in Crowley’s life. Reuss was associated with the degree collector McBlain Thomson, which led Crowley to contact with Spenser Lewis of AMORC among others. Crowley eventually distanced himself from Thomson and purged OTO to a great degree of its infringements on regular Masonry, but the stigma was attached and the charges rightly and wrongly of his activities as a clandestine Mason linger.

The United Grand Lodge of England, on the other hand, has a committee that judges whether a person was ever a Freemason whenever there is a question of legitimacy. They have deemed Aleister Crowley not to be a Mason based on their judgement of his “character” in spite of the fact that they now recognise the Lodge into which he was initiated, whereas they recognise Mozart as a Freemason even though the Strict Observance to which Mozart belonged has at no time ever been considered regular by the United Grand Lodge of England. In the United States such matters are determined by Masonic code and such problems never arise.

If a Grand Lodge is considered regular, the work of its subordinate bodies is considered regular. American Freemasons can feel confident that with the recognition of the Grand National Lodge of France and its dependent body Anglo Saxon #103, Aleister Crowley’s mother lodge, Crowley’s initiation, passing and raising as Freemason was fully regularised and is technically recognised by Masonic code in every United States jurisdiction.

Even in Crowley’s time, the vast majority of Freemasons in the United States would have considered his initiation regular with the recognition of the Grand Lodge du France, unrecognised until WWI but certainly at no time either clandestine or irregular.

Aleister Crowley was for a great part of his life a regular Freemason and his life and work reflect the instructions given in Freemasonry. His magick, his work in the Golden Dawn, A∴A∴ and OTO, including the Book of the Law (Liber Legis), reflect Masonic ideas and ideals and his work cannot really be fully understood without the context of Freemasonry.

The image shows Aleister Crowley as an initiated Freemason bearing a fifteen sided cross into his signature as Baphomet.

Crowley's Legacy of Perversion and Evil

Aleister Crowley, born Edward Alexander Crowley in Warwickshire in 1875, was the self-proclaimed “Wickedest Man in the World” and the “Great Beast 666.” He also considered himself to be the “avatar of the Age of Horus” which was supposedly a 2000-year-old aeon, beginning in 1904, that would supplant Christianity with “Crowlianity.” Crowley had rebelled against a strict religious upbringing and was thus initiated into the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1898, after leaving Cambridge University. He left the Order after a row with its founders and then travelled to Mexico, India and Ceylon, where he was introduced to yoga and Buddhism which replaced his interest in the occult until an experience in Cairo in April 1904. Crowley was asked by his wife, Rose, to perform an esoteric ritual as an experiment. During the ceremony, she entered a trance-like state and became the medium for the words of a communicator. “They are waiting for you,” she said to Crowley. “They,” she said, being Horus, the god of war and the son of Osiris, according to the beliefs of ancient Egypt. The communicator told Crowley to be at his desk in his hotel room between noon and one o’clock on three specific days. He agreed and in these periods he wrote, via automatic writing, a document called The Book of the Law. This tome spoke of a race of supermen and condemned the traditional Judeo-Christian religions, pacifism, democracy, compassion and humanitarianism.

“Let my servants be few and secret: they shall rule the many and the known,” the communicator revealed. The message continued: 
“We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit; let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings; stamp down the wretched and the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world. … Love one another with burning hearts; on the low men trample in the fierce lust of your pride, in the day of your wrath. … Pity not the fallen! I never knew them. I am not for them. I console not; I hate the consoled and the consoler. … I am unique and conqueror. I am not of the slaves that perish. Be they damned and dead. Amen. … Therefore strike hard and low, and to hell with them, master. … Lurk! Withdraw! Upon them! This is the law of the Battle of Conquest: thus shall my worship be about my secret house. … Worship me with fire and blood; worship me with swords and with spears. Let the woman be girl with a sword before me: let blood flow in my name. Trample down the heathen; be upon them, O warrior, I will give you their flesh to eat. … Sacrifice cattle, little and big; after a child … kill and torture; spare not; be upon them!”
The same communicator confirmed that Crowley was the “Beast 666” who had come to destroy Christianity, something his mother had told him earlier in his life. Crowley apparently tried to ignore what he had written with his guided hand, but it would not go away, and from 1909 on he began to take it very seriously. He said: 
“After five years of folly and weakness, miscalled politeness, tact, discretion, care for the feeling of others, I am weary of it. I say today: to hell with Christianity, Rationalism, Buddhism, all the lumber of the centuries. I bring you a positive and primeval fact, Magic by name; and with this I will build me a new Heaven and new Earth. I want none of your faint approval or faint dispraise; I want blasphemy, murder, rape, revolution, anything, bad or good, but strong.”
In 1898 Crowley had joined the Order of the Golden Dawn where he made the acquaintance of his temporary mentor, MacGregor Mathers, leader of the occult group. Taking on the name of Brother Perdurabo (“I will endure”) and beginning his experiments with drugs, Crowley’s voracious bisexuality and his interests in the darker forces gave him a sinister reputation. He was very much a figure of decadence who loathed Christianity. The Golden Dawn taught a form of magic that was derived from the Kaballah and Rosicrucianism. There are also certainly similarities to Freemasonry and Theosophy. However, the magic espoused by the Order of the Golden Dawn soon proved to be insufficient for Aleister Crowley who was convinced that more potent magic could be harnessed through sex and drugs.
Crowley left his former tutor, MacGregor Mathers, a broken man as he embarked on a psychic war against him. They both conjured up demons to attack the other. The violent eruption concluded with Crowley claiming that Mathers was killed in a magical duel by a vampire he had conjured up. The would-be usurper proved to be too perverted and bizarre for the Order and was cast out. He formulated his own ideas, seeking aid from what he termed the Secret Chiefs (supposedly divine beings with supernatural intellects). The revelation that came to him in Cairo was via a demon named Aiwaz.

Crowley welcomed the First World War as necessary to sweep away the old age and usher in the new one. After going public with his revelations, he was made head of the German-based Ordo Templi Orientis that he had joined in 1912. The OTO emphasis on sexual magic was precisely what Crowley had been searching for. He founded his cult of Thelema in Sicily in 1920, but was expelled in 1923 amid accusations of, among other things, blood drinking, drug taking, and child sacrifice. He is known to have favoured the German war effort during the Second World War and, whilst abroad, once notoriously wrote in The Fatherland: “The sovereignty of England must be destroyed once and for all. England must be divided between the Continental Powers. She must be a mere province, or better still, colony of her neighbours, France and Germany.”
The major axioms of Satanism as it would later develop in the 1960s were contained in Liber Legis, or The Book of the Law. The credo of the book was summed up in the now infamous phrase “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” Crowley’s next important literary contribution was The Equinox (1909). Many of the ideas contained in this latter work became the basis for modern Satanism. Weighing 3.5 lb per volume, these were the journals of his newly formed Order of the Silver Star aka Argenteum Astrum. In 1929 came Crowley’s Magick in Theory and Practice. His American publishers, Dover, made a selling point of the claim that the book contains Crowley’s admission that he himself carried out ritual killings of children, a point not lost on a certain Henry Bibby at the end of the century. Having recommended to his readers the choice of “a male child of perfect intelligence,” Crowley later acknowledges that some of his acolytes might be squeamish when it comes to ritual sacrifice and offers the following conscience clause: “Those magicians who object to the use of blood have endeavoured to replace it with incense … But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is best.” Crowley offered no comforting disclaimers. He described his opus as a course of training to help people from all walks of life “fulfill themselves perfectly.” And he promises that “the student will discover … a practical method of making himself a magician.”
Within the same work, Crowley makes reference to unspecified progressive forms of blood sacrifice and he advocates self-mutilation, the offering of blood and virginity, and animal sacrifice by crucifixion. Crowley notoriously baptised a frog and called it “Jesus Christ” and then crucified it. This was in 1916, while living in New Hampshire, USA, during his induction ceremony to raise himself to the rank of magus.
The remainder of Crowley’s life is a long legacy of perversion and evil. He believed that degrading sexual practice and drug use destroyed the consciousness of any sense of morality. This in turn enabled the consciousness, deprived of any sense of “ought” or “law,” to come under the influence of powerful supernatural beings.
Former Labour prospective politician and National Children’s Home employee, David Hallam, commenting of Crowley’s opus, said: “People who are inadequate might pick up something like Crowley’s Magick in Theory and Practice and believe that they can control peoples’ lives by using magic, believing that if they do this to a child, they will have power. I cannot understand why anybody would want to publish a book advocating the ritual slaughtering of children. No doubt there’s a massive market for occult material. But publishers must remember that these are often handbooks. People are picking them up for a purpose.”
Jerry Johnston in The Edge of Evil (after the Enyclopedia of Occultism and Parasychology) has it that Crowley’s own son died a ritual death.
All but forgotten at the time of his death as a poverty-stricken heroin addict in a run-down Hastings boarding house in 1947, Crowley was rediscovered two decades later by drug-crazed hippies and also popularised by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin who bought Boleskine House, near Inverness, where Crowley attempted to invoke Aiwaz. John Symonds, Crowley’s biographer, recalled that “he merely attracted a host of evil spirits.” Richard Cavendish observed in A History of Magic that “though he was an almost forgotten man at his death, interest in Crowley has revived and he has more followers now than in his lifetime.”

The Satanic Delusion

One of the delusions that will need to be established at the outset is the lie that leading Satanists do not believe in or truly worship the Devil. Anton LaVey viewed Satan as a true entity that he absolutely worshipped before his death. LaVey deceived a lot of people who joined the Church of Satan by claiming that Satan only represented the repressed forces of nature, but was not a real entity. Interviews with former Charles Manson family member Susan Atkins resulted in Atkins blowing the lid off of LaVey’s lie.
As a former associate of Anton LaVey’s, who danced for him and spent personal time with him before joining the Manson family, Atkins was privy to conversations with LaVey before he became popular. Atkins revealed repeatedly that, while LaVey promoted a watered down, almost palatable form of Satanism to the ignorant masses whom he deceived, he acknowledged the exact opposite to her and to his inner core of Satanists within the Church of Satan. Susan Atkins revealed that LaVey told her emphatically, while she was in his home, that they truly worshipped Satan as a real entity and as the one who began the initial rebellion against God.
Atkins also stated:
“Anton told me that as a Satanist he does believe in the God of the Bible but he refused to worship Him and made a conscious decision to worship Satan instead.” (Susan Atkins interviewed by Joe Schimmel).
There are pictures of Atkins with LaVey in his ritual chamber when she associated with the Church of Satan. LaVey was aware that few people were ignorant enough to truly turn their lives over to Satan, knowing that they would not only be allowing themselves to be deceived by their worst enemy, but that they would spend eternity in the fiery torments of hell.
LaVey, therefore, presented a sensitive, user-friendly form of Satanism in the hope that it might appeal to the masses he was seeking to deceive. LaVey sought to put a spin on Satanism as a kinder and gentler form of Devil worship claiming that Satan merely represents a force in nature, and that, rather than Satanists’ sacrificing animals and little children, they are animal activist who love children. All of this was done to garner unwitting recruits. First and foremost, one should never trust a Satanist. Satanist’s view lying to be among their highest virtues. 
LaVey and other Satanists serve the one whom Jesus Christ repudiated as “The father of lies.” (John 8: 44). And, of course, it would be entirely appropriate for the father of lies to cloak his religion in non-reality. Satan has long been about deception and has successfully deceived many recruits into believing that they are simply worshipping a symbol rather than a reality. Satan relishes in such ignorance. Atkins’ testimony that LaVey was deliberately duping Satanists in the outer circle is corroborated by evidence from LaVey’s himself.
LaVey let his guard down when responding to other Satanists who considered him “not extreme enough.” LaVey, while in a defensive mode, admitted that the image he was presenting publicly was deceptive, declaring:
“If they’re at all intelligent [other true Satanists] … they’ll realise that there’s only so much I can say publicly … I will not advance things in print which make my position untenable … How long would the Church of Satan have lasted if I hadn’t appeased and outraged in just the right combination? It required a certain amount of discretion and diplomacy to balance the outrage.” (Lucifer Rising, page 133).

Above is Anders Behring Breivik (born 13 February 1979) who is the perpetrator of the Norway massacre. On 22 July 2011, he killed eight people by setting off a van bomb amid government buildings in Oslo, then shot dead sixty-nine members of a Workers' Youth League (AUF) summer camp on the island of Utøya. Breivik, who supports Israel and far right Zionism, is seen in his  attire as a Freemason and in another image giving a Communist/Marxist clenched-fist salute. He was also obsessed with Knights Templar symbolsim and adopted some of it for his own purpose. Early reports described him as a paranoid schizophrenic before he was finally diagnosed as having a narcissistic personality disorder. These anomalies are explained when the satanic delusion is applied to him.

The Church of Satan

Anton Szandor LaVey founded the Church of Satan in 1966 in San Francisco, California, on Walpurgisnacht (April 30th). LaVey identified his particular brand of Satanism in his book The Satanic Bible (1969). A derivative group, and offspring of the Church of Satan, is the Temple of Set founded by Michael Aquino in 1975.

Purposeful deception is needed amongst leading Satanists to enslave those whom they recruit as unscrupulous and unsuspecting pawns who feel more comfortable believing Satan is a symbol for force. Few Satanists realise the evil intentions among the inner core of the cult and how lower initiates are viewed as mere puppets to be used and later discarded. Those in the higher echelon are often aware of the nature of Satan and the demonic realm that they serve. They are often bound and blinded on another level because they have become addicted to the power that Satan deceptively promises. Kenneth Anger, who was a cofounder of the Church of Satan with Anton LaVey, used a similar spin on Satanism, as did LaVey. Kenneth Anger stated in the 1960’s, in his film, Lucifer Rising, that, “Lucifer is the light god, not the Devil.” (Publicity of the jacket for Lucifer Rising). This delusion that Lucifer is really the God of light, and not Satan, should not surprise those familiar with God’s word, which warns that Satan “masquerades” as an “angel of light” to draw the unsuspecting into his evil web. His agents do likewise.
Years later, after Kenneth Anger had deceived multitudes of people into thinking they were worshipping the supposed “light god”, an entity that was not really Satan, Anger “confessed” that Lucifer, whom he worshipped, had always been the historical “Satan.” (Lucifer Rising, page 47). It was too late though for many Satanists who had been deceived. It appears that Marilyn Manson is playing the same mind game with his fans as did LaVey and Anger. Besides following LaVey, who deceived his followers, Manson admitted, “I’ve taken a lot of my inspiration from Kenneth Anger.” Sadly, while the leaders among Satanists realise that Satan is for real, many who swell the ranks of their churches have been duped into believing that they are in some nature religion. They are taught that either a real Satan does not exist, or that hell will not be all that hot. This, of course, is sheer nonsense. 
Anton LaVey himself was severely deceived as he stated in his Satanic Bible that he would reign with Satan in hell. LaVey now realised he was the most deceived of all. The scriptures are clear that hell was created as a place of torment for Satan and his angels. (Matt 25: 40-43). Moreover, God’s Word declares that Satan will be stripped of his power and rendered “weak” and “covered with worms.” Satan will be rendered one of the weakest and most pathetic beings in the universe, an object of ridicule and scorn by those who were deceived by him. Those who have been deceived by him will marvel that this once powerful fallen angel has been rendered powerless and will mock him as a “carcass trodden under foot” in their torment. (Isaiah 14: 9-19). So even leaders in the Church of Satan, who are deceiving their initiates, are themselves deceived, believing that they will have some place of power in hell. As St Paul prophesied:
“Evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3: 13)
Richard Ramirez, known as the night Stalker, was deceived by Anton LaVey’s assertion in the Satanic Bible that Satanists could reign in Hell. Ramirez believed that his human sacrifices to Satan would earn him a place of power in Hell next to Jack the Ripper and other serial killers. Further evidence of what leading Satanists really believe is revealed in admissions made by Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino of the United States Army. Aquino was a leader in LaVey’s Church of Satan and was LaVey’s “second-in-command” before he broke off to begin his own satanic order called the Temple of Set. Aquino ended up taking several of LaVey’s followers with him.
The Temple of Set would eventually attract the likes of Anton LaVey’s daughter Zeena LaVey. So rabid a Satanist is Aquino that he had the number 666 tatooed on his scalp. The Temple of Set proclaims that Set, another name for Satan, is a real entity and is a name for “The oldest known form of the Prince of Darkness.” Aquino seems to have been under the conviction that society had become so jaded that many of those in the outer circle of Satanism were ready to worship Satan as a real entity. Aquino believed it was time for Satan to come out of the closet in all of his naked deformity. Aquino even took the more up front view of Satanism to the television airways where he virtually admitted that Satan is a real entity and that many are in the dark as to whom they are really worshipping, including millions of New Agers. On Oprah Winfrey, Aquino acknowledged that they are following the infernal being that orchestrated the initial rebellion against God, the Creator of the Universe. Aquino admitted to Winfrey and the television audience made up of millions that they are following Satan who initiated the original rebellion against God:
“We believe that this quality [to oppose God’s natural order] in the human soul that makes it different from all other life forms … was deliberately inculcated in humanity in its distant evolutionary past by an active agency that is acting in defiance of the universal norm [God’s moral law]. And that agency has been caricatured … as Lucifer, as Satan, and, in the greatest antiquity, by the ancient Egyptians as Set.”

Aquino went on to describe how they believe that they as Satanists are now becoming gods. This was at the heart of Satan’s initial rebellion and now Aquino was parroting the essence of Satanism, which is a desire to usurp the true and living God’s authority and follow Satan into God realisation. “We are not servants of some God,” declared Aquino, “we are our own gods!” Oprah Winfrey appeared to be shocked to find out that this was exactly what she believed as a New Ager, failing to realise that the New Age movement has it roots in Crowleyite Satanism even as Aquino’s Satanism. It has been established beyond a shadow of a doubt that Crowley was not only a confessed Satanist, but that he was the father of the hippy drug movement and counter-culture from which popular New Age teachings first became entrenched in Western civilisation. Almost gasping for air, Winfrey declared in response to Aquino’s assertion:

“Well, the way you explain this is very the way a lot of people who are into metaphysics now and the New Age movement and New Age thinking, they say the very same thing. Are you saying that it’s the same?”

Aquino, without skipping a beat, said “Yes” to Winfrey’s question, implying that New Agers and Satanist are on the same wave length in their rebellion against God and in their quest to achieve god-hood as they follow in Satan’s footsteps. He only clarified that most New Agers are not aware that they have joined a satanic rebellion against God and that Satanists know what is going on. Aquino stated:

“Yes, except that I would say we [Satanists] have a more precise grasp … We would say that we understand what’s actually happening a little better than many New Agers.”

Much to Aquino’s chagrin the Temple of Set would find out that even as debauched as the world has become most people are still smart enough not to knowingly serve Satan and end up spending eternity in Hell. After bringing Satan out of the closet the Temple of Set failed to enlist the large amount of recruits they apparently hoped for. In their failure to acquire more recruits they changed their method of evangelism and returned to a formula more in keeping with that of the Church of Satan. Today the Temple of Set, like the Church of Satan, espouses a more palatable seeker sensitive form of Satanism so as not to scare off potential recruits. The result is that Satan is once again cloaked in ambiguity, but the song remains the same as inner circle initiates are deceiving outer circle initiates.
Winfrey was surprised that Aquino, as a confessed Satanist, would try to deny the hard facts of the evil behind Satanism. When Aquino stated that they as Satanists have “nothing to do with evil,” she said:

“It’s just difficult for me to understand that the Devil is a good thing…that Satan isn’t evil, which is the opposite of what everybody in this world has been taught…”
Winfrey went on to exclaim:

“In every state of the nation authorities are investigating some form of what they call satanic activity … Children are telling the same stories about infants being murdered before their eyes in strange devil rituals. The list of bizarre stories goes on and on.”
Not surprisingly, Aquino tried unsuccessfully at this point to put another typical spin on Satanism by claiming that they are not into such things. Even as leading Satanists like to hide the fact that they are truly worshipping Satan so it is that they seek to deny that Satanists sacrifice humans including children. The truth of the matter is that Aleister Crowley, whom Aquino acknowledges had an incredible influence on Aquino and the Temple of Set, not only taught his followers to engage in child sacrifice but admitted to sacrificing scores of children himself. After Aquino made the false claim that Satanists do not really sacrifice children, a law enforcement officer spoke up and stated:

“To say that there are no bodies and that these [Satanists] are not committing crimes is the farthest from the truth … in every case that I’ve investigated, now extending over two hundred, I have found this particular book [The Satanic Bible].”
At this point the investigator held up The Satanic Bible. In The Satanic Bible, LaVey proclaimed that he was seeking to “not advance things in print which make my position untenable” lest he find himself behind bars, and further stated that his followers were to commit human sacrifices by proxy:
“We perform human sacrifices, by proxy you might say—the destruction of human beings who would, let’s say, create an antagonistic situation toward us—in the form of curse and hexes, not in actual blood rituals because certainly the destruction of a human being physically is illegal.”
Note that the only reason LaVey concedes that he is not publicly advocating actual physical human sacrifice is because it is against the law, implying that if they could get away with it they would do it. In fact, LaVey takes credit for the deaths of Jayne Mansfield and her boy friend and lawyer Sam Brody, stating that it was the result of a ritual curse on Brody, and Mansfield happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. LaVey also believes that he was responsible for the Manson family murders. Manson was heavily influenced by the satanic cult known as the Process Church of the Final Judgement. The Process also acknowledged that Satan is a real entity. Their particular twisted spin in an effort to get unwitting recruits was not to pretend Satan was not a true entity but to claim that Satan was actually a Jesus loving Devil. The Process claimed that they, Jesus and Satan had reconciled and that all would work out well in the end for everyone including Satanists, because Jesus had supposedly forgiven the Devil. Ridiculous as this spin was it proved successful in garnering more than a few recruits. The bodies have piled up and the idea that Satanism is not behind the death of countless multitudes of innocent people is a lie only believed by the incredibly naîve. Manson, who was a confessed Satanist, was responsible of up to thirty-five murders if the admissions of some of his former followers are to believed. Charles Manson, whom Marilyn Manson cites as one of his pre-eminent inspirations and a brilliant philosopher, has stated, “Jesus Christ is for real and so is that other guy [ie Satan].” Charles Manson knows that Satan, whom he serves, is a real entity and has been more candid than has his follower Marilyn Manson. Son of Sam, who was part of a Process coven made up of twenty-two Satanists and connected to several other satanic covens, also murdered several people at the direction of the coven. Richard Ramirez, who followed The Satanic Bible and met with Anton LaVey before his satanic killing spree, killed twenty people. Ramirez even went so far as to torture his victims and made some “swear to Satan.”

Celebrities who are also members of the Church of Satan include the entertainer Sammy Davis Junior who can be seen pictured between Michael Aquino and Anton Lavey. The singer/dancer sported a coloured finger-nail on the little finger of one of his hands in his latter years. The colour, eg black, red etc, depicts a rank held within the Church of Satan. A growing number of celebrities wear the same painted finger-nail for the same reason today.

Lust, Greed, Hate and Satanism

On 7 June 2000 the small Italian town of Chiavenna was rocked by the discovery of a gruesome murder in one of its quiet back lanes. The blood-soaked victim, who had been struck with rocks and smashed against a wall before being stabbed nineteen times, was later identified as Sister Maria Laura, the much-loved Mother Superior of the local convent. The brutality of the killing shocked townspeople, and attracted widespread media attention: and with no obvious motive for the murder, rumours soon started to fly. Satanic signs and slogans were found nearby and the killing was blamed on devil worshippers striking a blow against the Catholic Church. On 28 June 2000 three popular teenage girls were arrested.
They were fans of the depraved “entertainer” Marilyn Manson, a member of the Church of Satan, whose lyrics are too blasphemous, hate-filled and obscene to quote on this group. At first the girls’ attitude was arrogant and cold. They refused to speak to the police. But when they eventually began to speak it became apparent that their appalling crime was a premeditated act. Milena, one of the girls, admitted that they had met outside the church one night and cut their hands, drinking the blood while they pledged an oath of eternal loyalty to each other. “We decided to go for a nun,”
Veronica, another of the three girls, told her interrogators, “because she was the opposite of us. We believe in Satan.” The third girl is named Ambra. They beat the nun into unconsciousness with a tile and by beating her head against a stone wall. When that failed, they took out knives and stabbed her to death. But throughout her ordeal, Sister Maria Laura had prayed for her attackers, and promised them that God would forgive them even as she did herself. Armed with these confessions, the carabinieri searched the girls’ homes and found diaries testifying to their obsession with Satanism, and with the lyrics of the degenerate performer and singer Marilyn Manson who cashed-in on the tragedy when touring Italy in February 2001.

Marilyn Manson said:
“If having your own opinion makes you evil, then I am evil. … All I say is don’t feel guilty for having emotions like lust, greed and hate - because you are going to have them.”
On 9 August 2001 Ambra had the case against her dismissed on the grounds of diminished responsibility, and was sentenced to three years’ rehabilitation. The other two girls, Milena and Veronica, were found guilty of first degree murder and were each sentenced to eight years and six months. There is a move in Chiavenna to have Sister Maria Laura, who had taught in the town for more than thirty years, beatified.
Aleister Crowley’s satanic religion of Thelema, followed by the birth of modern witchcraft, occult explosion of the 1960s-1970s and the New Age movement of the 1980s-1990s, all share a common heritage from where the current satanic revival has found succour. The formal establishment of the Church of Satan, with such derivatives as the Temple of Set, has certainly played its part. Between Charles Manson, Son of Sam and Richard Ramirez alone we have dozens of murders in the name of Satan.
One could easily add to this list case after case that would fill several books, but the point has more than sufficiently been made for those who will honestly look at the evidence. The most influential and notorious satanic leaders have had a campaign to dupe their followers into becoming unwitting followers of not a symbol, nor an abstract force, but of Satan himself. Not only their own admissions, but the deceptive web they have spun to prey on outer circle initiates, give witness to this fact.

Faustians and the French Connection

There have been neo-Nazi / pro-Fascist sections within the Church of Satan as well as outside it, such as the Abraxas Foundation, Werewolf Order, Order of the Black Ram, Black Order of Pan-Europa, Order of the Left Hand Path and so on. Also links exist between the Church of Satan and the Occult / Fascist National Renaissance Party. The founder of the Church of Satan, Anton Szandor LaVey (11 April 1930 – 29 October 1997) did meet with the National Renaissance Party leader, James H Madole. Kerry Raymond Bolton (born 1956) is an extremist writer in New Zealand who has been active in several organisations. He has written numerous publications focused around politics, race, metaphysics, religion and the occult, particularly Freemasonry. His 2006 doctoral dissertation was From Knights Templar to New World Order: Occult Influences in History - an examination of theories.This brings us smartly on to Kevin Chesham (born 1953) who completely transformed after living in New Zealand and forming an association with Kerry Bolton, founder of the Order of the Left Hand Path (renamed Ordo Sinistra Vivendi, then the Order of Deorc Fyre, and in the same year created the Black Order). Kerry Bolton was a former member of the Temple of Set (an offshoot of the Church of Satan) and was briefly secretary for the New Zealand Fascist Union. Kerry Bolton's Order was intended to be an activist front promoting an "Occult-Fascist Axis." 

A master's thesis was written about Kerry Bolton and published by the Waikato University titledDreamers of the Dark: Kerry Bolton and the Order of the Left Hand Path; a case-study of a satanic/neo-Nazi synthesis that dealt with the link between neo-Nazi and satanic beliefs in New Zealand. This is the man Kevin Chesham, originally of Basildon, Essex, cultivated a friendship with while in New Zealand. Upon his return to the United Kingdom, he and his wife, Beverley Mason, formed an unholy alliance with David Farrant. They met and connived how best to cause me maximum damage. Online they are supported by Anthony Hogg. David Farrant's friend Redmond McWilliams has met Chesham and given him his full support. Farrant's son, Jamie (born 1967), supports them and is a Facebook friend with all the aforementioned. Hogg sought the online friendship of John Pope who has a history of Nazi-Occult activity and is Farrant's longest-serving collaborator and friend. David Farrant, Jamie Farrant, Anthony Hogg and Redmond McWilliams have Pope as their internet friend. David Farrant remains in physical contact with John Pope. Farrant and McWilliams are also in physical contact with Kevin Chesham, who is now permanently based in Dubai. Chesham visits Farrant at his home whenever he is in the UK. They made a pilgrimage to Highgate Cemetery together in May 2013, accompanied by Redmond McWilliams and someone who describes herself as "Della Farrant."

Jean-Paul Bourre has also visited Farrant at his home. The first time was in 1980. I met Jean-Paul Bourre thirty-six years ago and was not very much impressed by this self-proclaimed Luciferian. I make passing mention of Bourre in two of my books concerning Satanism and the supernatural. The book about Satanism reveals a curse concocted by David Farrant that was sent to Bourre's then girlfriend Nathalie Sarazin. It unimaginatively bore the initials "S M" - quite obviously the handiwork of Farrant. I was unsure at the time as to whether Bourre was also part of this attempt to make it look as if I had sent the curse. Now I feel confident he was. I spoke with the journalist Nathalie Sarazin after she had broken up with Jean-Paul Bourre, and she confirmed that she had been aware from quite early on that David Farrant was behind the much publicised (in one of Bourre's books) curse. I also provide an image of the curse in From Satan To Christ (1988) and with it a sample of Farrant's handwriting. Graphologists who inspected the curse sent to Nathalie Sarazin were certain it was created by the same hand as that revealed on samples of Farrant's handwriting. Graphology/handwriting experts can view the facsimile images in From Satan To Christ which contains the curse Farrant sent to Sarazin across a page and facing it a full page sample of Farrant's handwriting (in a challenge he wrote and sent me).

Jean-Paul Bourre made his first pilgrimage to Highgate Cemetery, accompanied by Farrant, in 1980. He lost no time (as demonstrated in the photograph above) in attempting to evoke any lingering evil folowing a history of Satanism at the graveyard in previous decades. Bourre is the author of The Luciferian Sects of Today (Les sectes Luciferiennes aujourd'hui) where it is revealed that Francois de Groussouvre (Grand Master of the Priory of Sion) had an official cover job as organiser of the Presidential Hunting Parties which it is alleged was really a front for more intimate gatherings in private houses. Francois de Groussouvre was discovered dead in his office.
