Today, I bring this blog out of hibernation with a post on the Satanist and personal information.
Sect of the Horned God recently had a fire that destroyed their property, and it was my intention to support them by applying for membership of their group. These Satanists are part of the new wave of modern Satanism who approach the LHP from a rational point of view, and they are grounded people with good business minds.
The initial test of membership of the group was ten questions on my beliefs, a way of filtering out the lazy and stupid. Answering the questions was fun and useful, and I passed this test. The next stage I had problems with, there was more questions on my beliefs, which made the process seem onerous, but also so many questions that demanded from me so much personal information.
Now, I like Sect of the Horned God, but the demand for so much personal information from me was asking me to put my total trust in them that this information would not leak or be used against me. In an age that it seems that security and privacy is treated with contempt, and the news is full of stories of leaks of personal information, the onus is upon the individual to protect themselves rather than rely upon others.
I have been involved in a fight against those who promote a SRA narrative in London for over a year, people who trawl the internet for personal information on their victims so they can harrass, defame and ruin families, businesses, relationships and reputations of their targets. Such people would love to get hold of all the personal information I was being asked to hand over to Sect of the Horned God, and if they did, I, my business and my family would suffer a living hell.
The agency of ruin or success rests always with the individual, including responsibility for their personal information. I say that the Satanist only shares personal information with those that they know in real life. I don’t think it necessary or beneficial to anyone for any Satanist group to ask for more than a name, address and an e-mail contact of a member, more than this, the individual puts themselves and their family at great risk.
Sadly, I won’t be able to proceed with membership of the Sect of the Horned God, with every respect to them, the risk to my personal security is too great due to the amount of personal information they are requesting from me.
