In response to the news on “Spirit Cooking,” following leaks into the Clinton campaign.
The Satanic Temple spokesperson replied:
“Obviously, what’s really going on here is that the real would-be magicians are attempting desperately to conjure scandal from lackluster and mundane emails which were previously hoped to contain some political career-ruining revelations.” (Lucien Greaves)
“The absurdity of the accusations regarding the disgust-inducing ingredients harken back to witch-hunter inquisitorial panic fantasies that one would hope we’d have grown beyond today.”
There are so many things, we would like to discuss also, concerning the practical side of our studies.
Once, news likes this comes out, there is an echo chamber, that affects all of us, Satanist, Theosophist — all.
It is mockery, harkening back to base fears, and comic black robbed figures in bloody conjurations.
—images of semen-eaters, and child fuckers.
We cannot always excuse what people are doing, but Lucien Greaves, has a point.
All these old fears, are not just Christian superstitions, but are strengthened, by persons actually believing and doing those things, which may be for Marina Abramovic and Podesta, apart of some performance art, or fetish. Who knows, but upon reading it, I thought it meant he went to Marina’s show.
I am not actually convinced, that the reference to spirit cooking, is an indicator of Satanic ritualism.
The term, Occultism, or Esotericism, is now amalgamated with ideas and practices of “nefarious” Dark ARTS.
Relics of the Middle Ages and ages before.
It is almost impossible to fix it now, and I’m sick of it.
We are sick of what the o c c u l t is associated with, and what people keep doing.
