Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.
--Aleister Crowley, The Book of the Law, 1:40b

Life is the great indulgence--death, the great abstinence.
--Anton LaVey, The Book of Satan, 4:1a, The Book of Lucifer, p. 92

In nomine Dei nostri Satanas Luciferi excelsi!
--Anton LaVey, The Book of Leviathan, opening invocation, p. 144
Today is a day of celebration for philosophical Humanists everywhere--a day for the spiritually impotent to deify human will, human desire, and human strength and call it "Satan." In fact, the "Church" is gathering for a Black Mass ceremony in Los Angeles only a dozen or so miles from where I live. Unfortunately, it's closed to the public and available seats have long since sold out. My heart goes out to these who have such despair and anguish without God that they know themselves to be animals first and nothing last and so they glory in it because the meaningless and wretchedness is all they know.

Well said Dave! I would be overburdened to live my life without hope! I'm lucky to one of his children.
