Question: Did you research Aleister Crowley? Or did you hear someone who isn't named Aleister call him a satanist? It's been repeated so much that it has been substituted for the truth and people quote this guy as if he was the leading satanist of his time. No, that's Christian propaganda no different than what my Aunt said when I challenged her long held beliefs with knowledge and my need for everything to make logical sense so I'm not living in a world of fantasy and make believe.
I was called satan too because she was comparing me with her indoctrinated idea of who Satan was and what he wanted. This is part of the reason why Christians are often deeply deluded and programmed not to ask critical questions or seek out critical information. This is how Christianity protects itself from truth and knowledge; by getting you to FEAR IT.
You fear it and then you call anyone who isn't a sheep, you call them a satanist. As much as you talk about others being a sheep to liberal propaganda you are the biggest sheep because you Bbaaaaaa for the right wing, baaaaa for Christianity, and baaaaaa for conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones. You're following so many people that the only reason you can keep all this stuff straight is because there is a cornerstone idea in your head that creates all the confirmation bias you need to buy into and believe any lie that you are told; as long as it feeds your narrative.
Crowley grew up the same way a lot of satanists grew up. He grew up religious and was likely under constant pressure from his fundamentalist Christian parents. Kids often rebel against their parent's religion when it:
1. seems hypocritical
2. fails under critical analysis
3. cannot answer real questions
Crowley was screwed up by his parents and became a manipulator and exploiter of religion, just like L. Ron Hubbard and the church of scientology. Once these guys lose the fear of the Christian God, they often still see the need or desire for some kind of spiritual development or system. They don't care about using the same religious terms you're used to because they don't carry any sacredness to them. This is why the church of satan uses Satan. It's not because they are evil, but because they desire to be free of the religious persecution that often takes evil forms by Christianity. Hence, the Crusades and Inquisitions.
The real life history of Christianity is far worse than Crowley claiming to by contacted by a supernatural entity named Aiwass. That doesn't mean that he was, just like it doesn't mean that Aiwass is the same as the planet Pandora from the movie Avatar. But chances are you're going to run back and tell your friends how you just discovered a Hollywood plot by James Cameron to introduce good decent Christians into satanism by having them feel empathy to Aiwass. It's ridiculous but they will believe you because of their own confirmation bias. They want it to be true. And therefore it doesn't take any real convincing.
There is nothing in Crowley's bio about him believing in satan. Like many people outside of mainstream Christianity he was interested in magic. But guess what? So are you and every other Christian on the planet because the whole belief in the bible and Jesus is based on the performance of magic you call "miracles"! Would you believe Jesus was the son of God if it wasn't for the miracles spoken about in the gospels? The gospel writers knew this too. That's why they used miracles to prove he was "sent" by God. Christians further got confused and convinced each other that he was God, while rewriting Hebrew history and completely pissing on Deuteronomy 6, Isaiah 45, and many other verses that obliterate the notion of a Trinity.
But again... people are allowed... or should be allowed, to be stupid and make up stuff without someone else making up a lie that they're in league with Satan. This is the very same claim made against innocent women in Salem before they were burned (MURDERED) at the stake; burned alive. This burning people alive is the same torture Christians told each other that the devil would do to people in hell. So why the F-CK are THEY doing it?
Do you not see the irony? One of the labels given to Satan is that of deceiver. So why are Christians going around using deception, calling people satanic the same way they called women witches until the townsfolk actually supported the idea of torturing them to death?
Crowley very specifically was into magic and made up his own stuff while Christians took it so seriously that they claimed he was worshiping satan? But aren't the actions of liars, deceivers, and torturer's worshiping satan by being "born" in his very image??
Christians not only killed millions of people during the Crusades and other wars, but they, through Adolf Hitler, were also responsible for the holocaust against the Jews. Hitler was also raised a Christian and there are many historic images showing the nazi priests doing the salute. Again... burning humans, just like their "enemy" *wink*... Satan.
And that's not even touching the Trail of Tears in America and the fact that Christians used the beliefs of indigenous peoples around the world to argue that they were godless, backwards, uncivilized heathens who therefore deserved to be slaves. But again, is it God or Satan who should think to whip men women and children who want to be free? And freedom is what America is supposed to be about but not "our" freedom. We were taught Christianity as slaves because the salvation in that book had nothing to do with us. It even set rules for how to enslave people; rules that the Christians broke because they gave not a F-CK about truth according to the bible, but rather cherry picked whatever made them profit.
You can look me in the eye and tell me that all the murderous evils whites have done all around the world, arming both sides of conflicts, dropping the atom bomb, and so much more, that all this is the work of God and not the devil? If there ever was a devil it wasn't in the people who didn't believe in the bible. It was in the people who did. Again... read a book.
And yes, make whatever sign you want. It is a FREE country where you are free to use your voice anyway you choose, BECAUSE IT IS NOT UNDER CHRISTIAN RULE!! However, slander and libel are against the law. But I guess its okay when white people do it. Yeah, what am I thinking? Carry on.
