Sinagogue of Satan

"The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black God, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of Atheism or Idolatry. For the Initiates, this is not a person, but a force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of Liberty or free will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan; thence the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the light bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend."
- Albert Pike "Morals and Dogma" Ancient and Accepted Rite of Free Masonry written and published in 1875

"Hate those that earn it, as you would love those that earn it, As Above, so below." "When the world is viewed with no set reality, The lies of society are revealed and the bonds of slavery, broken."
- Rev. Michael S. Margolin

Welcome to our ever growing and evolving religion. Like the Silver Star, we have our periods of silence as well. We use them to update and modify the main site and doctrines of SoS. Old members will notice a lot of changes have occurred from our humble beginnings in "99". Due to the persistence of other satanic groups trying to force their reality through our doors, we have brought our Masonic stance to the forefront of the site. Yes, we still support all religions right to exist, and we support the individual's right to belief, but SoS is not an individual; it is a religion based on the ancient Masonic ideas of Satanism, not those of the popular conmen of our day, or Christian propaganda; though as members, you have the right to believe in them too.
The aim of this religion is the ultimate destruction of religions through the advancement of individual freedom and social responsibility. The philosophy of SoS undermines all existing religions.
By not having any set reality or belief, you are not trapped by their rules and are free to start making your own. This is freedom, the breaking away from the status quo, much like when Satan broke ranks from God and became the first revolutionist. It's funny how governments promote God worship, when most modern governments owe their existence to Freemasonry and revolution, the dream of freedom, the spirit of Satan. It's no wonder that governments and Christianity actively indulge in propaganda against Satanism, for they truly fear being overthrown. As for America, Satanism is Americanism, for America supports freedom of religion in the same Masonic context as SoS. Though certain religions in America attempt to combat this, our wonderful constitution, written by Masons, prevents them from achieving their goals. Enslavement in any form, religious or otherwise, is un-American. Therefore, I declare any and all religious groups that do not support freedom of religion as un-American. Also certain fads or movements that harass people for their personal choices, such as hairstyle, piercing, sex, tattoos, music, and much more, are also un-American. Yes, SoS reaches far past the United States borders. And no, unlike my government, I'm not trying to spread the American culture to other countries. But, I am trying to spread the Light of Phosphor, the light of freedom, throughout the world.

Those that know me, know that I love using the system to achieve my own aims. So, it is no surprise to most that I have obtained legal recognition for this mass manipulation scheme from the State of California and the Federal Government of the United States of America on 1-29-99 by utilizing my authority as an Ordained Minister of U.L.C.M.
U.L.C.M., the Unitarians and the new Satanic unity movement, accept most faiths, but are predominately Christian or conmen Satanist in nature, and actually exist to enslave you. As you can clearly see, I learned a little bit from their game and used it to turn the tide in Satan's favor. Rather, in your favor, as consumers of prepackaged mail-order religions/realities. You can see although we are predominately Satanic/Thelemic/Masonic in nature, SoS accepts all religious beliefs, styles, races, cultures, ideologies, nationalities, sexualities, etc. As long as those that wish to join accept the premise that each individual has the undeniable right to his or her choice of reality, no matter what your personal religion or choice dictates. We do not try to sway you into accepting Atheism, Freemasonry, Satanism, or Thelemism, for that is not our aim or goal.
Our aim and goal is freedom. We offer a system to surf realities/beliefs without being engulfed, submersed, suppressed, or subservient to any of them, including ours; or having to accept any of their past or current dogmas, morals, lifestyles, ethics and fees. We are a Free Church in all the possible definitions of the word. And freedom is only found in the mind, for the physical world and its systems, such as society, bind us. With freedom comes a great responsibility to our neighbors in this system of society. For, as seen so many times, one man's freedom becomes another man's slavery. As members of SoS, I ask you to view reality/beliefs as the unalienable right of everyone. But I do support your full-blown assaults on your adversaries as long as you execute your attacks in a legal and productive manner. "We do not turn the other cheek, unless it's to buy time to spite with discretion." Hopefully by your mannerisms, diplomacy and actions, more people might see that freedom is not so evil, and people can be socially responsible without a threat of hell or ostracism. Please do remember, it is their right to live and die in a fairy tale, just as it is your right to live and die as you will. Besides, tolerance is not acceptance, you don't have to like someone or thing to tolerate them or it.
Now, one last thing, we ask you to abide by the laws of your countries and local governments as they pertain to you, and to take an active role in changing them as you feel is needed.
Tune in, Turn on, Take over! {Revised Leary saying}
Tune in.. Learn about your political system and environment.
Turn on.. Use the system and your understanding of the environment involved.
Take over.. Manipulate and change the system and environment as needed for social advancement and freedom.

SoS has an Ambassador and Priesthood status; this is reserved for SoS members that accept the SoS religion as well as their own personal belief system. Members of other beliefs are not allowed this privilege, for they can obtain such status through other groups.
Ambassadors and Priest/Priestess positions exist to serve the members, not to be served by them. For more information on these positions, see "Structure and Goals" in the newsletter section of this site. SoS exists to give subcultures and minority religions a legal connection to their beliefs that can be used in a court of law if the need arises, such as housing, job discrimination, harassment and insuring religious rights while in the military services. SoS is also known as "The Hermit Path." We exist for all the people in this world that enjoy their independence in all aspects of life. Until now, this vast number of individuals lacked a legal connection to their religious rights. Governments and societies ignore the needs of the individual and cater only to mainstream groups that they find acceptable for the society.
By creating this religion, I have forged a path that all may tread, thus giving the once voiceless a voice, and the once weak, strength in numbers. SoS is not affiliated with any other satanic groups and is not bound by any other group's authority. We do, however, have a close relationship with the E.G.C. within Ordo Templi Orientis. They were kind enough to grant us the right to use and adapt E.G.C. rituals for SoS needs, and for this I'm eternally grateful. We are the only satanic group to have a connection with an order of antiquity and Freemasonry. Except for the baby sacrificing Christian Satanists, they will always have a tie to the Catholic Church {an order antiquity}. By accepting the Bible and other apocryphal propaganda, they are in essence Catholics, and should have their own branch, like the Jesuits. Yes, I am an inactive O.T.O. member, and they still have my love, respect and support, but my view of the world cannot be restricted by any system. Therefore, I am a hermit.

SoS is for free thinking independent people. If you prefer a more closed stringent reality than SoS, it is probably not for you, and I ask you to please refrain from joining. SoS makes no claims as far as the "True Satanic Path," or any "True Way." I created this religion for people to think and grow for themselves, and at their own pace, with the power of like minded people to support them. We make no claims of superiority, nor do we war with other groups, unless it's a case of defense. Never in the history of man has there ever been an organized religion set up in this manner. All our predecessors have bound their members in some way or another. "The word of sin is restriction." Therefore, we do not demand our members uphold any system or belief. In the members section, you will find The SoS holy book. This work is not mandatory to accept, unless you apply for Ambassador or Priesthood status in the SoS. It is merely offered to our members as an alternative holy book, and is owned by SoS and no others. Our Baphomet sigil also reflects in its design this idea of universal thought and philosophy by encompassing the Ankh, Flat Cross, Yin Yang, Square and dividers and the unicursal hexagram.
We are not trying to create a church of unity; we merely support the rights of diversity and of the individual to achieve freedom. Unity implies a code or system to maintain the peace. I cannot stress this point enough. Cooperation between diverse realities is not unity, but fraternity. SoS is not a utopian movement in any way, shape or form. SoS also contains a very broad and diverse resource and link section. Though many organizations are on our link list, we affiliate with none of them.We are autonomous and show no loyalty to anyone but ourselves. We do support and accept all religions right to exist, but we do not entangle our freedom in the politics, ethics and actions of other groups. SoS has many features, such as a free email service, message boards, Satanic Singles post, online store, member's area and a chat line. Our members are worldwide, so our chat room attendance varies due to time zones. I try to visit and give people my time and classes as my time allows.
We have no central temple or lodge. Our priests and Ambassadors often hold meetings and classes in their homes. Please be respectful guests, for none of us accept money for our time and services. This is also new as far as religions go. Our work and attendance is a labor of love, not monetary advancement. Since our birth on 1-29-99, we have received many attacks by other groups, but we do not retaliate often. When we do, it is usually with Satanic Humor, for we understand that our system is a threat to all current systems of beliefs, including those of the Church of Satan. We do not wish to threaten any other belief, but we do wish to finally have in our possession a Free Church for a Change!

Following this brief introduction is a list of commonly asked questions that I have answered, and a charter for non-members to show their legal connection to their beliefs, despite their reservations regarding SoS. If you have any more questions, please feel free to write me:

Answers to Good Questions

1 Statement: "Hey man, you spelled Synagogue wrong."
A: We spell it Sinagogue because we wanted to capture the word sin, and didn't want a connection with previous terms, like church, circle, lodge, order, oasis, shrine, society, synagogue, temple etc. We wanted a new religious name for a new religion. Call it poetic license if you will. And to top it off, not offensive to the Jewish population or my grandparents.

2 Q: "What do you mean you formed this church out of necessity?"
A: I have joined a lot, a lot, a shitload of religious groups that preached freedom of individuality. But after I met my new friends, I found something quite familiar.
(a) The usual group ego that either absorbs, destroys or expels those strong in their will.
(b) Ego food for some narcissist or megalomaniac.
(c) Money scam; the higher you get to the top, the more it costs you, or just the outright "Give us your property."
(d) The control freak scenario of anti occult propaganda, which, by the way, is the exact opposite of what those groups claimed they were about. The writings of the creators of the beliefs were quite different than those in practice. That statement goes for living and dead creators of beliefs. So, after becoming disgusted with my pursuit for a religion that promotes freedom of the individual, I became a legal minister and created one.

Statement:"You're stupid! You should use the tax-exempt status and live off these idiots!"
Reply: That's what all the religions have been doing since the dawn of history. I wanted to make a new religion, not another old one. A religion by the members for the members, and each and every member, a respected individual and participant, with the unalienable right to their personal reality or belief.

Q: "Why Satanist?"
A: Satan was the first revolutionist, therefore the perfect figurehead for a revolutionary religion. His act of rebellion was the first allegory of freedom. So, I use his image as the symbolic representation of our aims and goals.
