Rewritten during the hot summer of 2018
This blog has evolved and gone through many changes over the years. It began as Cassie’s personal journal, then charted her first steps in Satanism and the beginning of her relationship with Sophie and her daughter Léonie. Since that time Cassie and Sophie have become leaders of a Satanic coven based in Switzerland and Léonie has moved to Austria and joined a local Satanic Group. Devil’s Advocates has chronicled many of these developments. It will continue to be a blog in which the three mentioned “Satanic Muses” can speak about their lives and views from a Satanic perspective. These days we feel less need to justify our beliefs or lifestyle but we still feel it important to give a more positive and realistic account of Satanism than you are likely to find in the mass media.
Cassie is the Academic Manager of a company that provides specialised English courses around the world. As well as teaching, she trains and monitors other teachers and acts as a liaison between local schools and her company’s head office. She spends a lot of time traveling. She is very interested in music, art, science and politics. She enjoys writing and hopes to publish several books during the next few years.
Sophie is a teacher and social worker who works in a special school for teenagers who have emotional and psychological challenges. She is in the process of reducing her teaching commitments in order to focus more on her musical and artistic talents. She is a former Buddhist who incorporates many Buddhist techniques and principles into her Satanic lifestyle. She enjoys cooking and loves eating even more!
Cassie and Sophie consider themselves to be married and live together as a devoted couple. They are also “swingers” who enjoy consensual sex with others. They are Theistic Satanists although most of their lifestyle and many of their beliefs closely follow the principles of Anton Lavey’s atheistic Satanism. They are on the cusp of 40 at the time this is written and are very happy in their highly inked skins.
Léonie is Sophie’s biological daughter. She is studying veterinary medicine in Vienna, Austria. She has always liked working with animals of all types and is particularly drawn to spiders, snakes and other creatures many people are wary of. She works for a refugee charity and often finds herself sympathising with minorities and underdogs in all walks of life. She describes herself as a passionate Satanist and is a member of a German based coven. She has always taken her studies seriously but she also fully enjoys the hedonistic aspects of her philosophy. She has inherited her mother’s tattoo addiction along with a few other vices.
The Three Authors of this blog clearly have much in common but there are many differences between them too which might become apparent as the blog continues.
We don’t claim to write on behalf of all Satanists. There are many types and varieties of Satanism and perhaps the only thing most of us have in common is that we are very individualistic. We do hope however that this blog will continue to give a new and different insight into Satanism for anybody that is genuinely interested. If nothing else it is a place where we can discuss the things that concern US as a family of Satanists.
