TL : "Ms. Dore,
what is it about Satanism that
makes it such a misunderstood philosophy in your opinion?"
S.D. : "Satanism is naturally
misunderstood by so many because of it's ludicrous misrepresentation by the masses and
in the media.
People all too often base their opinions
on pure sensationalism not truth.
The term 'Satanist' is merely
one to discredit the only true evil depicted by the xian church and that would be anything related to what they term as evil,
hence I figure the term pisses
the xian revellors off
and such is the real focus of
Most of us do not really acknowledge
and if we do it is far removed
from the xian concept of Satan,
as he is perceived to be.
TL: "Why do you think Satanists
seem more at each other's throats than in any sort of alignment?"
S.D. : "Ha,
that's really not too difficult
to understand and it cannot
Most who claim to be of Satanic
nature still find it necessary to bond with someone,
some group, some Org, something.
Satanism is not about that.
It is about individuality.
There are many who will always
need to belong to something or need to be agreed with and they still profess to be Satanists.
This is herd mentality and so
many times it is prevalent and goes totally unrecognized by those who berate such behaviour in others.
Man's affinity for social behaviour
is not herd mentality and should not be categorized as such.
The lines are never clear as to what ends where as all is
subject to interpretation but there is a difference between the two behaviours.
It is the hope of this Org,
that it's members find their own
while able to walk peacefully amongst others.
Most of us have been ousted by
either on the net or perhaps off,
although this seems to be truly
since this is where ya find
all the various Orgs who wish to be in the open.
Man is hypocrytical by nature.
So it never surprises me anymore
'Pseudo-Satanists' do not comprehend
In a way it's a 'Catch 22'.
We want to be seen and heard.
We want to have strength in numbers,
yet so many see that as a coalition
of some kind,
when the only true path to Satanism
is the individual one.
It is entirely possible to be
a member of an Organization and still remain individual if you find the right balance and have the understanding of seperation.
One must not need validation in
order to accomplish this.
TL: " Why do you have an Organization
S.D.: "The PLHP was formed to fight
for the rights of all people to openly worship man as god and do so in total allowance without restriction.
It is a large group of individuals
who have a common goal but individual ways to get there.
We use our presence as an Organization
to draw media attention to our cause,
and to offer those who seek to
walk our path a means of becomming informed of who and what we truly,
Then it is up to each individual
to progress as he or she sees fit to do.
We support one another as a family
yet we all have and uphold our
and positions in life.
That is why this Org works.
T.L.: "Do people ask you if you
believe in Satan?"
S.D.: "Oh my yes, all the time!
Nor Santa Clause,
but I do have my eye on the Easter
Bunny. ; )
T.L.: "You seem to have
a real zest for life.
Do you think Satanism is
at all responsible
Satanism gives one the power
to believe in themselves,
no matter who else does or does
That alone is so crucial to mental
So many people never come to understand
that they need only do as they feel is right for them to grow and advance
towards a better life.
Satanism has given me that realisation
I do not owe anyone anything
nor do they owe me.
It is my right, as it is the
right of all,
to have the best experience possible
from this life,
and Satanism liberates one by
establishing the foundation so
necessary to walk away from the NEED to
Hence this way of thought completes
the individual without the usual misunderstanding that one requires approval for their existence.
Satanism provides the understanding
Self to self.
When you are free of needing
you are truly free.
Then wonderful things begin to
and you can then come to share
your experience with total enjoyment,
without the restrictions
T.L.: "Are you really a Reverend?"
S.D.: "Yes I am really a Reverend.
I was legally ordained by
a Reverend Xaphan who headed the
Satanic Church of Lucifer's
I was involved with other Orgs
in the past,
and given even more pretigious sounding titles
but I have chosen to only honor
the title I was given by the Reverend who headed the SCOLC
at the time.
If I am to have a title at all,
and I don't think one is necessary,
I will only use that which was
given to me out of true respect and appreciation for my contributions to Satanism.
Of course anyone can claim themselves
to be a Rev,
and even get the papers to prove
but this is something that was
bestowed upon me
by those who feel I have earned
to hold a title.
Regardless of such,
my mission remains the same.
One comes to realise very quickly
that titles do very little in this arena.
But should one be told they have
earned it through hard work,
then I say wear it well.
T.L.: "What do you think is the
futur of Satanism?"
S.D.: "I can only say this,
it certainly is not going away.
Many are comming to understand
that responsiblity lies with the responsible.
God has obviously let some people
T.L.: "Ok tell me do you really
engage in magic
rituals and ceremonies?"
S.D.: " It is safe to say that
we do engage in Magick.
Now the thing is what is your
Personally it is my belief that
no great mystery
and that we all employ it daily
even if it is labelled as conscious choice.
Magick is what one wishes to attain
and then setting forth to do so.
Of course to be effective it is
essential to visualise your desires at some point before making them a reality.
We all do this no matter
what you care to call it.
In that sense alone I certainly
as it is simply a basic
to do so.
Now when one understands this
it can be taken many steps further
to involve the workings of the elements of nature,
which are always behind the workings
of what is known as Magick.
To engage in ceremonial activity
is only to realise one's desires to the fullest and purposefully seek to manifest them
I do not think one has to be into
'rits' to be successful at this.
Every object involved in ceremonial
Magick is meant to add to the energy of what
the Practitioner is putting out
As such the ceremony or rit provides
the necessary mindset and emotion to totally connect one with
their higher Self,
through which all Magick is attained.
I enjoy the theatrics of this
but I do not find it to be anything
but a catalyst to what I actually wish to accomplish.
And at times one may require all
the advantages of having the standard ritual objects and energies of written word to invoke complete desire and visualisation.
True Magick is that which we desire
and the ability to visualise and manifest this on the material plane.
How one comes to accomplish this
goal is a very personal method and that would actually be the only way to work Magick.
No other man's ceremonial words
of Magick can ever replace the true personal energy that brings the innermost desires of
an individual into focus.
But if they assist one to connect
with the Will,
then it is all good.
Hence no set format is required
It is merely the understanding
acceptance of such, and the knowledge
of how to enforce the will to attain the desired outcome that connotates Magick.
Write your own words of Magick,
listen to your heart, see within your mind's eye.
Connect with the energies of nature
that you are
in alignment with.
Then you will have preformed the
And so Mote it Be!"
T.L.: "What does this organization
S.D.: "Besides bettering our own
existence through self awareness and expanding our horizons in any way that may adavance the intellect,
we do actually get out in the
world and support groups who try to make this planet a better rock to inhabit.
As Satanists we celebrate Life
which will surely astound many!
It is a popular misconception
that we are a morbid, dark, and might I go as far as to say(chuckle) EVIL lot!
When in fact that is not at all
what we who are truly Satanic
uphold in any way.
Yes we do adhere to an "Eye For
And hey so do the xians I hear!
But we are a body of people who
know this is OUR backyard and we are responsible for mowing the lawn,
not this xian god.
We do whatever we choose to support
Many donate blood, or do community
or simply walk a dog.
Not quite the image you may
have perceived in your twisted little brain huh?
I will add that one can be Satanic and do squat with their
time or abilities and that is individual choice.
T.L.: "Why do you spell magic
with a K?"
S.D.: "It is an old
term of referral and god knows
I am as old as dirt! mmmmmK?"
