HALLOWEEN READING: Anton LaVey's 1967 press release for the 'first Satanic baptism in history'

PROCLAMATION: At 9:00 PM on Tuesday, May 23, 1967 (the second year of our Satanic Lord) sorcerer and High Priest of the First Church of Satan, Anton Szandor LaVey, will perform the first Satanic baptism in history. The ceremony will take place in the ritual chamber of the First Church of Satan at 6114 California Street, San Francisco.
The baby girl, named Gloria Lilith Bach, a relative of the composer, was conceived in good old fashioned lust, and was ‘fathered by the Devil’. The baby was born on May 1, 1967 following the Satanic fertility rites celebrating Walpurgisnacht (Eve of May).
The mother, who is a priestess of the church, will serve as the nude altar for the ritual in which her child will be baptized by fire, earth, air, and water.
The purpose in the Satanic baptism is to instill earthly pleasure in the infant rather than cleanse her of the ‘Original Sin” which is the purpose of the truly blasphemous Christian baptism. There are millions of wonderful little children being born of healthy lust. The kids have been condemned as ‘sinful’ by the Christian Chruch for too long. It’s time they got a fair shake and a little ceremony for being as free and honest as only they can be.
Magical music for the ceremony will include ‘The Hymn to Satan,’ and will be provided by the organist of one of the largest cathedrals in San Francisco, who will be hooded to maintain his anonymity.
