The Stern Judges

The fact you’re reading this update means an interest into Satanism, critical thinking and a support of various atheist ideas, after all, this is the official SotHG WordPress with the sect itself being an organization in support of these ideas. A variety of issues since its infancy have been discussed, are still being discussed and will probably be raised once again in the future. Issues ranging  from the question of stagnant satanism towards skepticism and the supernatural and onwards to various societal critics.

But how does this all add up? While many are being busy weeding through a variety of images, posting shit loads of pictures, reports, charities and trying to leave their mark by spreading various media articles through a variety of media devices linked to the great communicator (internet), a certain scrutiny has to be upheld. This is the point where the chaff is being separated from the wheat. While the intentions might be considered worthwhile or make up a part of the praxis, it severely lacks credibility by reason it isn’t put where it matters. I see many rejoice when the next blogs talks about “science updates”, stories of religious bullshitting being received with laughter and finger-pointed at while giving ourselves the reason of polishing the “superior then thou”-badge for not having fallen into it, or simply stories and blogs taking a hike and enforcing the idea of intellectual superiority by means of labeling religion as “poisonous”, “a rotting carcass”,…

While these are fun stories to read, it simply degenerates by the fact those are shared in a closed environment where the “anti-idea” is already celebrated. It misses the impact as they aren’t placed in places where they DO matter. With a stern face they can, at best, be labeled as amusing. Is it that surprising some will start taking a hike with it? Doesn’t satanism embrace the idea of progression through conflict? Your take is applauded, but at the very least know what your actions truly are. I’ve found myself repeating this sentence over and over again the last couple of weeks: “put it where it matters”. The stories and updates only “spread” the media, nowhere and not at any point is there an activism involved. I might as well click on the “like” button.

Updates about “injustice” and charities with an asking to sign the petition are akin to wallmart-greeter behavior and I fail to see any “satanic praxis” in that. Put it where it matters.

Juular!
