CORTLAND, Ohio — A teenager was arrested after a leader of the Church of Satan turned over to the FBI an e-mail the high school student had written to the sect in which he threatened to kill his grandparents, authorities said.

Andrew Culver, 18, told police the e-mail detailing his intention to kill his grandparents and steal their money and car was a joke, said Bazetta Township police Chief Charles Sayers.

According to police, Culver wrote he had access to an arsenal of weapons and wanted to "kill in the name of our unholy lord Satan."

Culver sent the message Wednesday to Peter Gilmore, the high priest of the New York City-based Church of Satan, Sayers said. Gilmore alerted the FBI, which notified local police. Culver was taken out of class Thursday and questioned by police, Sayers said.


I don't know why this amuses me so much!

Sort of goes against the whole Satan thang?

Prolly bad I find this all very amusing...but wow, the Church of Satan reporting this. I spose perhaps it is like ... a moral obligation?

And of course, who wouldn't report something like this?

*telling myself off... I should not find this funny at all!

OH had to add this:

Gilmore said members of his group are atheists who believe Satan is a symbol of freedom, not evil. "To the Satanist, he is his own God," reads a statement on the group's Web site from Gilmore.


I reckon this might pull a lot more to join the Church?

Freedom? ...NOT evil?

Yeah, Satanists only sacrifice babies and virgins, right?

They don't want some wrinkled up old grandparents, what would their neighbors the pagans say?

That's it. I'm joining then.

The story does bring up one interesting point. That most Satanist do not worship the biblical Satan but themselves instead.
