Are We Spreading the Wrong Message? – By Fyre Lilli
Young girls planning to kill classmates and claiming affiliation to Satan. Adults mutilating and torturing animals in the name of Satan. I have seen several of these posts all over my wall and in groups and I have to ask why are we perpetuating the anger?
As LHP followers we have an uphill battle to climb to rid society of preconceived notions that Satan is all evil and something straight out of horror movie plots.
Richard Ramirez did the same thing when he was arrested and brought to trial on his counts of serial rape and murder. Television shows and movies from Hocus Pocus to Salem depict us as evil cursing and hexing witches who fuck Satan for our powers, sacrifice animals and eat children. They all teach idiots the wrong lessons about us but continue to push the idea that we as Satanists and Satanic witches are of the evilest and corrupt parts of civilization.
In a world where Abrahamic faiths make up over 75% of the US and 60% of the world population, perpetuating these stories, the people in them and their actions hands them a spotlight over and over sending shock waves throughout communities. It doesn’t help us, it hurts us. And as we copy and paste and re-post the stories we help create the hatred that makes it so hard for us to live peacefully. Because negative publicity gets 1000x’s more attention than positive.
If we really want to change how the world sees us we need to post our triumphs and good things we do within our communities and on our blogs and pages. We could use a director who isn’t afraid to make witches look good and show the real truth about what it means to be a Satanist. Not regurgitate this crap and allow it to infest more of the internet than it already does. Sharing and spreading this shit only continues to spread the wrong message and fuels more fire and sparks or hatred in our direction.
I read hundreds of comments about retaliation, burn them, incinerate them, curse them. It makes us sound like a mob of fanatics with torches. Basically exposing and highlighting our propensity towards the kind of retaliation society already believes. Revenge is a dish best served cold and silent. Telegraphing one’s intentions so the world can see only enhances the ability for media venues to highlight our anger and once again spotlight the evil vile nature they expect from us further linking us to these idiots who have no idea what it truly means to be a Satanist.
To Know, To Will, To Dare and To Be Silent.
Our Gods will get their due and they won’t go unpunished. In my opinion, we don’t have to spread this shit around to get it done.
