Satanic Family ValuesPosted: November 30, 2017
This is a kind of taking stock post, and a notification of subtle changes in our lives and in our blog. I have also edited out “about” page.
Cassie is very busy with work and other projects at the moment and will probably be taking a back seat here for a while, leaving Tina and myself in charge of Devil’s Advocates. It is still a family affair and every time I think about it I have to thank Satan for the part he has played in helping and shaping our family. I remember writing a post on one of our other blogs years ago speaking about the fact that Tina had started smoking. It was, in a way, the first sign that she was transitioning from a girl to a woman. Not long after that she told Cassie and I that she was a Satanist as well. Perhaps we didn’t take it very seriously at first, but her commitment has never wavered… It all seems so long ago, but it wasn’t, not really… I checked, and in fact that was only just over three years ago. Now there is a woman sitting beside me, cringing as I write these words. This woman has become a trusted friend and confidant, a person I am happy to socialize with, a woman who shares many of my beliefs, my tastes and my vices. She is still my daughter, but all traces of the innocent little girl have gone. She has become a sophisticated Satanic woman and while I am still her mother, I find I am learning as much from her these days as she can learn from me. And I like it that way. (Sophie)
My mother has grown up too! Looking back it is clear to me now that until she met Cassie she was a bit sad and lost. I really was still a child then. Sophie was always very protective of me and I was a very babyish child in many ways. Cassie’s arrival in our lives was a catalyst for all of us; including her. Since then, the rest is history… I like to think that I would have become a Satanist anyway at some stage and Sophie says she would have too but we can’t deny that Cassie was the one who introduced us to Satanism. We all started to really grow up then. My mother is much happier and more confident in all things. The same is true for me. But while we are all Satanists, we are not the same. I think some of my beliefs and the way I choose to live my life are a bit darker and more traditionally Satanic than either Cassie or Sophie. I quite like the fact that I can shock them from time to time! While they run their own coven which is very modern and untraditional, I am studying to become a full member of an older coven across the border in a few months. I think it is good that I feed ideas from my coven to my mum and Cassie and I can sometimes transfer their ideas to my coven. That way everybody grows. Meanwhile I have given up writing my own blog for a while to concentrate on other things… I will try to post here though from time to time. Sophie and I are working together on a post about hedonism which we will publish in a few days hopefully.
And don’t worry, Cassie is still around doing lots of stuff. I will nag her to post things here too even though she is busy. 😉 Tina
