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!


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! Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti Wears ‘Star Trek’ Uniform in Space

Considering everything that’s totally fucked in the world today, it’s nice to see someone in a Starfleet uniform—and not just here upon our troubled earth, but up there in outer space, viewing us from orbit. I don’t rave about Star Trek very often, but The Next Generation has always been one of my very favorite shows. I’m not the first person to wish we could all actually live in something like the United Federation of Planets, and I certainly won’t be the last; but the image featured in this article will show you that dreams can indeed be forged into reality. Let this be an inspiration to us all.

Sermon: The Underworld

Each religion has its concept of the Underworld; but what is this dark and mysterious plane, exactly? In popular culture, it’s usually pictured as a dark, nightmarish world that exists underground, and which is filled with tormented ghosts and demons. In fact, this notion of the Underworld seems to have influenced the Christian idea of hell, except that only “bad” (i.e., non-Christian) people are thought to go there. In ancient Paganism, however, almost everyone was thought to go to the Underworld, save for heroic warriors and kings (who reigned with the gods in heavenly places like Valhalla). Going there had nothing to do with whether you were good or evil in life; it was basically a matter of social status. Important people were noticed by the gods and welcomed into their various heavens, while common working class folk were expected to eat mud, drink tears, and gnash their teeth down there in the darkness forever.

Or were they?
