As I have written before, a lot of heavy metal bands like to hide behind so-called “satanism” to engage in blatant displays of racism, neo-nazism and white supremacy.
Recently, the Church of Satan itself has come under fire for their acceptance of fascism, neo-nazi and anti-communism.
The Church of Satan draws the ire of this article in a twofold manner:
1. because of its clear, hypocritical, and dishonest ways of platforming fascist ideas, and
2. because of its lazy and repugnant tolerance of its membership being far-right, alt-right, and fascist.
The organization has not made any statement or policy barring people who are fascists or fascist sympathizers, and when questioned on its complicity in allowing literal nazis in their ranks it either remains silent or wholeheartedly deflects the question and the church’s responsibility, which is hypocritical and ironic because the Church of Satan prides itself on championing responsibility to the responsible.
Moreover, fascism itself is not in-congruent with Satanism. In fact, there is canonical evidence via The Satanic Scriptures in the essay The Fascism Question that supports this claim. We will be taking a look at this essay in the coming days.
Satanism is just another name for white supremacy.
