6/6/06: Awesome Quotes from the Day of the Beast!Most of these quotes are from everyone's favorite "news" site, midwestmindset resource, and source for Omen jokes: The BBC.
"Among the actual Satanist community, attitudes to the big day vary. Rev. John D Allee is the founder of the First Church of Satan in Salem, America, which split from the original Church of Satan 12 years ago.
"I plan to take Lillee, my High Priestess, to the opening of The Omen movie," says the self-styled Dark Pope. "Then it's out for dinner.'"
HAHAHAHA! I can't believe this is real and not like an Onion article or something. Same Article:
The Temple of Set takes a more solemn view...Louise Renard is a priestess and assistant to the executive director in London. "There is nothing significant about that day or that number" she says. "Unless the new Omen movie turns out to be better than expected."
"Meanwhile, Vexen Crabtree[Can you believe that is really his name? HAHA!], the Minister of the London Church of Satan, plans to go to one of the alternative clubs that are celebrating 06/06/06. "...any excuse for a party is a good one." [Hopefully that party includes watching the Omen]
Crabtree dissociates the Church of Satan from the Temple of Set and the First Church of Satan, saying it is the only Satanist group that is "sane and worthwhile".
He says any Satanists who actually worship the Devil, rather than revering "Satan" as an abstract value, are "immature, unstable and nothing to do with us"."
Hahahahahaha! This is the best article ever! I love Satanist Controversies and Omen Jokes!
The article has more points of interest but I will finish it with this tidbit:
"At the other extreme, some Christians have foretold dire events. Tom Chase, a New Age Christian writer from the US, has used astrology and the Bible to calculate that the antichrist will emerge, followed by an asteroid collision and within a year or two the battle of Armageddon. The antichrist, according to Chase, is Vladimir Putin [of course, the antichrist is always eastern european, just as foretold in Revelations]."
At long last, Astrology and the Bible will join forces against the russian government.
Finally, amidst all of our intense and spirited debate here at mwm, I've found something we can all agree on:National Day of Slayer: June 6, 2006 (6/6/6)
So I propose as per slayer's suggestion that we "Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer."
