Thank Set

Thank You, Great Set, for seeing this world through yet another night. We praise You, O Prince who behaves as a man of the people, for straightening our spines to stand and opening our mouths to speak. May we each become You in whatever trials we must face this day!

The Wild Hunt: ADF Repudiates Isaac Bonewits

As an additional note…

I can imagine the heartbreak these people are feeling, and I empathize. I also think ADF’s decision was not made lightly and shows a great deal of integrity. I’m not a Druid, but my line of spirituality was partly influenced by Aleister Crowley; yet I fully acknowledge Crowley was an absolute ghoul, and we have never once honored him at any of our services in my circle. I see this matter as being much the same in principle. If it were somehow determined that the person who invented the wheel was a murderer, would this mean we need to ditch everything we now have in our lives with wheels? No, that would be ridiculous. It will be a long and hard healing process for ADF, but this is a remarkably huge step in the right direction, and I pray the gods will bless them and be with them as they work together to grow past this.

In The Desert Of Set

This is excellent news. I applaud ADF for actually having the ovaries to do this. For a refresher on my own issues with Isaac Bonewits, check out my sermon, “Rosemary’s Baby, The Satanic Panic, and Pagan Leadership.”

Hail, Steffi Grant!

Hail, Steffi Vera Grant (1923—2019)! You and your husband Kenneth Grant (1924–2011) were two of the most fascinating apostles of Set who ever lived. Those of us who walk with the Red Lord today are endebted to you for all of your hard work, for you helped to open His Celestial Gate right here upon the Earth. The contemporary Setian/Typhonian revival would not have happened without you. With great sadness, we bid you farewell; but with great hope, we wish you all the best in reuniting with your loving husband in Duat, and in exploring all the strange new horizons you will find therein. May your spine be forever straightened and your mouth be forever opened, both in this world and all possible others!

 

 

Sermon: Halloween Is Back, And It’s About Time

Anyone who’s known me for five minutes knows the Halloween franchise is my favorite movie series of all time. The 1978 original is the purest and simplest “good versus evil story” I can think of, with not one but two heroic characters you can really root for (Laurie Strode and Dr. Sam Loomis), plus a truly frightening villain (Michael Myers or “the Shape”) who is every bit as iconic as Darth Vader or the Joker. Many of Halloween‘s sequels, “requels,” and other spin-offs have built upon this original premise to produce a mythos that is much richer than most others of its ilk, and many of us fans were worried the newest film from 2018 would not live up to this heritage. After giving myself a year to re-watch David Gordon Green’s Halloween (2018) several times, I think I’m ready to pass my final verdict on this latest offering.
