S.I.N. vs. CoC Rivalry and Noah P. Romando

 

I don’t know that I’d classify this as an update on the Noah P. Romando case, instead I’ll just add it to the shit pile of social issues when dealing with ‘Satanists’.

Have a look see at the social commentary HERE.  It has been brought to my attention that my blog post was discussed on Satanic International Network, as well as being included in some sort of S.I.N. vs. Cthulhu Cult rivalry on a news reporting site.

I didn’t hear about the Noah Romando case from the Satanic International Network, I actually received the intel from the news reporting of Ms. Stuart reporting from The Hook via a zine I’m subscribed to on Zimbio.

Believe me when I say, it pained me to have to read through the social commentary on the front wall of the Satanic International Site, of which I have NEVER been a member.  I was invited to the site’s tinychat room by its owner Zack Schroder aka Zach Black.  I was NEVER banned from the chat room either, I simply stopped visiting it after Zach became upset over a graphic I created in response to his constant flaming and trolling of Venger Satanis.  He was so upset in fact, that he called Venger by phone and asked that he put the word out on our own Social Network to chill, because another user Ronald French had posted a blog discussing the constant banter by members of S.I.N. regarding the cult, and animosity between select members.  And that’s all it was.  It was never site vs. site, because it’s apples to shoes.

Some of the S.I.N. members that can’t seem to get enough of the Cthulhu Cult are referred to as our paparazzi.  And, they truly behave as such, so if the shoe fits…Wear it.

I agreed to honor Venger’s request on the Social Network, because it was indeed disruptive to the flow of conversations on the Cthulhu Cult Social Network, where I am a member and administrator.   Zach was still seething with butthurt over a month later, when my boyfriend was told that he could still remain in the tinychat so long as I wasn’t around to hear the conversations.  My boyfriend had an account over on S.I.N. before we even started dating, but was immediately treated differently because he was my boyfriend by December 2011.  My response to Zach’s request?  I laughed, I mean…Shit is too funny for words.  Seriously?  Ass still chapped after all that time?  It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt right?  Buy some ointment and call it a fucking day.

Never mind that Zach asked me constantly to join his network and I would refuse.  Never mind that Zach called me on my personal cell phone to ask that I participate, he even went as far as calling me at 4am at times with my boyfriend asking: WTF is up with that guy?  His drunken antics were by no means excused, and I always held him accountable for any statement he made, phone call, or trolling antics.  I’d deal with him directly, there was no need to piss and cry on a network about issues I handled myself personally.  Zach was ALWAYS humble so don’t get it twisted, this is all an act for fanfare.

As for the commentary about my blog, and using it for ‘shameless self-promotion’, give me a break.  I’m a writer. I write and I cover social issues regarding Satanism, paganism and the Occult and have been for nearly two decades.  And since when was self-promotion a sin?  Oh that’s right, I forgot about those self-righteous Satanists among the S.I.N. membership. I say some, because I regard people as individuals, and don’t fall into trendy social traps like cliques or gaining ‘enemies’ by proxy.

I met some cool people in the chat and even had some good laughs with some of the more enjoyable people I conversed with.  I also know who the polarizing envious fuckheads are too, I have them committed to memory by name.   In more recent months I’ve noticed that some of the ‘friendlies’ were also talking shit.  Drinking the S.I.N. Koolaid boys and girls?  Lay off that shit, and pull your head out of your proverbial ass.  You look like idiots.  Even worse, you represent the epitome of ‘Satanic’ Retards.

Zach Black uses every opportunity to plug that social network, shamelessly promoting himself, his videos, and hell…Even the latest girl he’s dating for some whack-ass street cred.  Social Networking is just that, I network.  I’m not on networks to make friends or seek acceptance. I am there to share my writing, and other creations which is what SOCIAL NETWORKING is also for.  I also don’t do it for a living, all of my writing is FREE of charge, the crafts on my website are also a hobby which I enjoy immensely.

Here’s a little tid-bit you folks may be interested to learn:

Zach Shroder aka my fanboy Zach Black contacted ME on my youtube channel, and vyed for my attention for nearly 2 years before I ever appeared on The Ooze radio show or visited S.I.N. tinychat.  When he invited me to be a guest on the show, and believed he could use me as pawn against Venger Satanis, he also got a nice dose of mental kung fu when I proceeded to speak more frankly and honestly about my experiences with Venger himself.  He also believed he could get me over to his network as a dig at Venger Satanis who was developing a wall.fm site of his own back in April 2011.  Why all the shit talk about Venger anyway???  He’ll tell you his own version of the stories but I know what’s what.

I commented on several episodes of the Ooze afterwards back when the topics were actually worth listening to, but I was trolling.  This whole S.I.N. vs. CoC rivalry is completely childish and always has been.  If you want to beat the devil at his game, you should learn how to play it.

If it weren’t for the fact that some of the boys still ached and cried over Venger and his cult, there wouldn’t be a reason to mention it at all.  Most of the loudest mouth pieces still don’t know what the Cthulhu Cult is, in truth. Some are still ass chapped over some social networking issue they were working out which I wasn’t even a part of.  In fact, I wasn’t on the CoC network for about a year when it all transpired.  By the time Venger asked me to come back to the network and we settled our dispute, I was in complete awe of the constant pissing and whining and by grown men calling themselves Satanists.

The Ooze, a show which started with the Cthulhu Cult ‘adopted’ by S.I.N. as some green eyed step child, took a dump and was diminished to a coffee klatch of gossip, and shit talk.  All those ‘heavy hitting’ topics as they referred to them, were really only a way to puffer the Social Network up as some grand place to be.  To me, it was always a complete ghetto and I wouldn’t slum it there, not even for cash.  Although I know some of the members have their own reasons for being there.

So excuse me while I correct the DISINFO that I was ‘bounced’ from that network several times.  Bullshit.  And for what?  Some Internet butthurt from over a year ago?  Get a fucking grip.  I was never a member. Nor was I ever banned from the tinychat.

The news reporting should be on Noah P. Romando, who he was as a person, and some possible causes for the murders at Stony Point.  Leave it to the scumbags over at S.I.N. to turn this issue into some Satanic Panic or publicity stunt to get more ‘numbers’ by the weak-willed Social Climber Zach Black, no such thing as bad publicity my ass.  This is it.

Zach’s grand accomplishment is that he created a social network that a monkey could operate.  Oh wait…

As I stated on my own blog about the social issues I was addressing, there certainly is bad press, and the commentary on the news reports demonstrates that more fully.  Like a bunch of children arguing over who has the best tonka truck.  Nice way to show the public that Satanists aren’t douchebags right?  Oh that’s right, I’ve written on the truth about that as well, check my archives.

I haven’t commented on a single report, because I know how quickly the social commentary bottoms out beyond ridiculous.  Instead I chose to share my perspective on my own blog.  The fact that a S.I.N. member chose to share it on their network, was entirely their choice.  I was merely offering my perspective to the hooks thrown out and often by Satanists themselves.

To the Romando Family and friends, if you are reading this, please excuse the mess we call Satanism.  It’s no more pristine than the dirty laundry aired in social media by any group of people using their philosophy or religion as leverage to excuse their own behavior.

Accountability and Responsibility is a notion parroted but isn’t always in practice by those that preach it.

If you are genuinely interested in learning about some of these social issues, feel free to peruse the titles on my Tindeck player of my podcast; including a topic which covers the reason I shaved my head and the response from select members of S.I.N. aired on their own radio showThe Ooze.  Just to get a feel for what we all deal with when discussing these issues publicly in Social Media.

Fatwa: The LHP JIHAD revisited

Fatwa: The LHP JIHAD revisited

A little more than a year ago, Venger Satanis Ipsissimus of the Cult of Cthulhudeclared a holy war on the Left-hand-path.  This bold move would produce much dialogue, and actions taken against the Cthulhu Cult  both symbolically and literally.

The most prominent themes among the arguments and criticisms were the true definitions of the Left-Hand-Path, as well as concepts of Unity.   I actively participated (and still do), in posing the hard questions that seek answers.  The most important question being What does this accomplish?

The compulsions of people are telling as well as the reactionary way that such philosophical dialect can be approached by mechanical beings as seen in their actions that followed.  Take for instance the reaction to Venger’s self-supported position as a messiah archetype.  I was away from the cult for roughly a year, and during that time there seemed to be a strong focus on Venger rather than the concepts he was discussing.  This prompted me to write a piece called Legions of the Messiah  which I published and shared to open up this dialogue with members of the LHP.

Members of the LHP remain perplexed by the idea of a prophet or messiah in not only the LHP but Satanism specifically.  Even if you elaborate with emphasis on the precepts of what the LHP is striving towards, some LHP’rs seem to revel for revel’s sake.  It’s important to understand that Venger Satanis is ‘A’ messiah, not ‘The’ messiah, and the language being used meticulously.  This was a concept that was easy to understand, for me, because I had been using this concept myself for years before Venger himself adopted it.  This can be seen in the tag lines I use such as ‘I am your salvation’.  When I joined the official cult forum back in 2008, proboards allows for a digital signature and quote.  And that was mine.  ”I am your salvation”.  It has been a vary rare occasion that I am asked or challenged about this concept modeling.

I suppose that it runs in tandem with my name, SIN JONES.  Sin, is often misunderstood and used way to pigeonhole my identity.  People react to language quickly, if they are mechanical.  The symbolism I use is meant to draw out the critical thinkers while stratifying the reactionary machines caught up in the matrix.  Essentially, it’s a form of culling.

The idea that outsiders considers me a subordinate to Venger Satanis is also a tell.  Venger is my muse.  If you believe he is my only muse, well…You’ve not been paying attention.  Some outsiders are perplexed to a level that urges them to seek clarity.  I’m often interviewed for my insights, but on a rare occasion I’m asked about my involvement in the Cthulhu Cult.  Here’s an example of a more recent interview with Warlock Asylum of the Asharu Tradition.  I figured I’d return the favor and had him on my show to offer the listeners another perspective to the pot I’ve been stirring.

Venger elaborated on his JIHAD on the cult forum, as well as on various social networks.  He was challenging the reader to prove him wrong, demonstrate their authenticity or else give up the label as hacks.  In the interim, I’m targeted and subjected to gobs of Internet rhetoric and character attacks because I’m supporting the Fatwa.  Why did I support it?  Like Venger, I was seeing the opposite of what I considered LHP, even if  I’m Hermetic because without Left or Right there can be no center or nullification.

Some self-styled Satanists call themselves LHP simply because they were traitors of Yahweh.  In reality they were traders.  Trading one god for another, but following the same precepts of the RHP.  This wasn’t LHP to me, or to Venger Satanis.  Slavery is slavery, and a person who grovels and lives in servitude is not the LHP we grew up on and matured through.   The Left-hand-path still has some tried and true constants even if it’s changed and evolved with the times.  PowerAutonomy and striving towards the godhead.  These remained unchanged for me, as well as Venger Satanis.

He was challenging Satanists and other LHP’rs to re-assess what they were doing, and how they had been living.  I support self-examination and analysis,Always.  The Ascensions issued by Venger Satanis within the Cthulhu Cult are merely markers of ascension, in other words, the level in which he observes the cultist reaching the godhead.  Shortly after returning to the cult after a year’s sabbatical, I was re-entered and ascended from Wizard of the Terrible Darkness to Priestess.  Why, after being gone for a year and not being actively involved?  Was it some sort of carrot to dangle in front of my face and live to chase after?  No.  Fancy titles don’t really appeal to me, but I understood Venger’s personal observations and assessment of my person.   Even though I wasn’t active on the forum, we ran into each other constantly on other networks.  Aside that, I kept reading his blog, I like to stay abreast of what creative people are doing in their own lives.  Whether I like their personalities or not is irrelevant to me.  What is personality after all but the sum total of influence and experience?

As far as I was concerned, VS was actively living the talk and it was evident to me in his real world results.  That’s inspiring to me, and so our musings continued.  I try to surround myself with inspirational and artistic people, even if it’s from great distances.

And so, the Fatwa came only a few weeks after my return to active participation.  Some cultists were reveling against it, not fully understanding what Venger was doing.  Others left the forum to join others where coffee klatches formed, and some of them were troll houses.  So the back and forth conflict ensued, not just between individual Satanists and LHP’rs but other networks as well.   Groups are easy to dismiss, the individual is often stronger than any group mind, herd think, or mob mentality.  Sometimes you have to wade through crowds of zombies to find an extraordinary individual of worth; one that stands on their own merit, and doesn’t need a group to support them.

I suppose people forget that Venger Satanis is an individual, and one that had provocative ideas which were given momentum by those that felt inspired by them.  He is the Ipsissimus of his own cult, and without cultists I feel pretty confident that he would continue to press on in his life’s pursuits.  He often lives up to his Messiah archetype, but no man is perfection.  Will he stumble and fall along the path paved with emeralds?  Most assuredly, but…The fact that he does not just lay down like a sniveling fool, keeps him zig-zagging through the black mountains, RHP/LHP and somewhere in between.

Yog-sothery isn’t for everyone, and often confuses the disingenuous Occultist. There are Occultniks running amok on Social Networks issuing their predicates as if they are in command and in control of their own lives.   It’s amusing to see, especially when they are declaring war against what they name as their oppressors.  Why do they live as slaves?  Why don’t they actively change their reality and live life on their own terms?  It doesn’t matter much what labels are applied to their enemies, the very fact that they are pissing and crying about them is a tell.

To that I say: Quit whining and do something!  Talk is cheap.  You wear your slavery on your sleeve like that bleeding heart of yours!

Change your situation. If you feel oppressed in every aspect of your daily life, then perhaps the prison you live in is that of your own design.  It all begins and ends in the mind.   What’s that old saying?  Free your mind, and your ass will follow… Yeah, that’s it.  Where are all those cry babies now?  Well, from where I’m sitting, they are still pissing and moaning but nothing has really changed in their lives.  Often times they are in a perpetual cycle of habit and ritual.  Perhaps they are too caught-up to realize they are still riding the Fool’s wheel, and continue to go round and round, distorting their perception of “reality”.

Reality, right… The only word that should always be in quotes.  People come at me with these notions of objective reality being of the utmost importance while the subjective reality is dismissed as day dreaming.    If you believe yourself to be a slave, then you will live as one.  The same is true for believing yourself a step-closer to reaching the godhead.

The Eldritch mandate still stands, and a Lovecraftian Theocracy is just around the bend.

“All religions are vehicles which can be used to arrive at a certain destination.  Within the Left Hand Path, that destination is defined by three tenets:  Autonomy, Power, and Self-Deification.  To go around thinking that anything can be achieved while the individual remains asleep to truth is the very height of blasphemy.  Stupidity, as Anton LaVey proclaimed, should be painful.  Thankfully, it is.  Maybe not in the ordinary world, which is full of ignoramuses, but in the extraordinary world… absolutely.  In the reality beneath this illusory construct, stupidity is downright lethal.” – Venger Satanis, Ipsissimus, Cthulhu Cult

I still support the notion that the LHP cannot become unified in any manner until people realize that they are deluding themselves into believing they are living in accordance with true will.  Most people are mechanized, reactionary, and are prone to being among the herd.  Where are the individuals?  I often only see groups claiming to have the answers, often received through revelations, and based in a puffered sense of authority to tell the rest of us how to live, breathe and practice.

Yeah, that’s right… React to this image.  If you do, then it’s doing it’s job and I haven’t even broken a sweat.  Call me the subordinate, believe that I am involved in a dangerous cult wreaking havoc on the occult.  The squidlies are coming to get you!  You had better put on your Sponge Bob  pants as there are always shoggoths in compliment ready to suck up your energy.

Fatwa!

I declare a war on the notion of Slavery!

I will create havoc and bring the chaos!

Wake up!  Wake up! Wake up!

Mediocrity passed off as progress disgusts me!

I spit through the horns and curse it utterly!

The birth of a new era is coming, and you can not stop it’s arrival!

The Old Ones draw Nigh!

The devils of this world usher them in with the blistering sounds of the mad flutes of Azathoth!

Dance I say!  Dance!

And the frenzy will commence, the battlefields riddled in blood, ooze and the slime of your remains!

Oh that’s right, I’m supposed to be a ‘lady’ and allow myself to be pinned down by gender roles and associations right?  To be otherized and divided among the dregs of society.

Shhhh little girl, quiet now… They may believe you to be quite mad.
