What can I say, he liked using different personalities from time to time.
i don't know how you think you can deny a fascination with the 'dark side' that thelemites have.
The only ones I see who have a fascination with the “dark side” are frankly people like you… they see the dark side in everything.
instead of just being rude and calling me troll, why don't you tell me what the OTO does?
Ordo Templi Orientis U.S.A. is the U.S. Grand Lodge (National Section) of Ordo Templi Orientis, a hierarchical, religious membership organization.
Our mission is to effect and promote the doctrines and practices of the philosophical and religious system known as Thelema, with particular emphasis
on cultivating the ideals of individual liberty, self-discipline, self-knowledge, and universal brotherhood. To this end, we conduct sacramental and
initiatory rites, offer guidance and instruction to our members, organize social events, and engage in educational and community service activities at
locations throughout the United States.
i think anyone interested should do a simple google search, "OTO ritual".
Or better yet ask a Thelemite! Just post in the OTO thread and HeirX, or myself would be happy to answer your question.
i would go visit your OTO thread, but i'm not really interested in the OTO, right now. maybe later.
Then why in the bloody hell did you bring it up?
www.sacred-texts.com... for beastly references and bizaare #e
LOL I just find it funny as I just did that ritual, not 30 min before I read this. Inverse pentagrams are so scarrrryyyy.
www.freedomdomain.com... for sex and drug use during rituals
You should note that this is not an O.T.O. ritual; rather it is from an offshoot group the Chthonic/Auranian Branch of the Ordo Templi Orientis.
I apologize to the FreeMasons for hijacking your thread with O.T.O./Thelema stuff, but I think you guys know how it is.
For others if you would
like to know more about Thelema, The O.T.O., Aleister Crowley you can visit this current thread
and will answer your questions to the best of my abilitys
