I am neither a fan or a member of Satanic groups or forums, but I like to read what fellow Satanists are saying, with events involving two recent Satanic forums offering a reality check about Satanism.
Satanic International Network run by Zachary Schroeder and the Sect of the Horned God run by Thomas Leroy has for a month been in disagreement with a small minority of vocal Satanists, who have caused drama, trolled and hacked those forums.
As Anton LaVey wrote:
“When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.”
When in another Satanists lair, be it a group, forum or home, you give them respect, or don’t visit. It is the reaction of a slave who is unable to let go, to hang on complaining like an old woman when the lair they are guest in does not stroke their misplaced egos. Why the need to form a pack of old women? Why not go off and join another forum, or make your own?
Another reality check is that the internet is a tool of communication, it is not Satanism, if all the “Satanic” individual or group has is an internet site without the substance of real life results, then they are misguided. Sect of the Horned God for instance holds events attracting hundreds of Satanists in real life, hacking and killing their low activity internet forum has zero impact on making them vanish due to their real life activities.
Zachary Schroeder however is his own worst enemy, having been part of a conspiracy to successfully buy and close down an older rival Satanic network called MySatan a few years ago, the same people causing Schroeder his current problems were amongst those who helped him close down MySatan.
Many of those who have been unable to move on from their obsession with fighting Schroeder and his forum, are anonymous pseudonyms who after being kicked out of their forum have nothing tangible to claim in the form of achievement or reputation, they become nameless nobodies of no relevance to anyone. It is individual achievement in real life that matters in Satanism, the internet is just a side-show.
The recent YouTube video by Zachary Schroeder and Thomas Leroy is worth watching as a reality check for Satanists:
