A lot has happened since I founded the Cult of Cthulhu nearly two decades ago.
Over the summer of 2004, I ritually conceived the Cthulhu Cult, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Then, in the Spring of 2005, the organization was fully realized or birthed in the form of a May Eve weekend convention in Madison, WI known as Cthulhu One.
Since then, the Cult of Cthulhu has grown, expanded, receded, and was temporarily put aside to make way for new endeavors. Now, it has come out of hibernation with not one but two different groups that spawned from the original.
The first is the Satanic Thulian Society's Cult of Cthulhu run by High Priest Lucifer LeGivorden who is taking the Cthulhu Cult back to my own LaVeyan roots. Their website can be found here.
The second Cult of Cthulhu is being reopened by my old right-hand-man High Priest Beast Xeno. He's still working on reorganizing and developing a clear focus of where his Cult of Cthulhu shall go in the years to come. In the meantime, he's running the old Order of the Nine Angles website here.
Both groups are clearly anti-woke and Left Hand Path. They believe in a higher power that is bigger than ourselves, and that we are called to more than mindless servitude or pleasure-chasing. They each have my support and are officially recognized as Cthulhu Cults with my full blessing.
While I, myself, am not going back to actively running the Cthulhu Cult day-to-day, but instead will remain the Ipsissimus (the eye in the pyramid), watching, waiting, and preparing for future struggles.
Nevertheless, I shall be advocating for three things, three new initiatives... three long-term goals to keep the spirit of the Cthulhu Cult alive and focused on real-world action, here and now...
- Forging an openness, understanding, and compatibility with our shared religious and philosophical brothers and sisters. Any individual or organization who values family, faith, and freedom are our allies - especially in these dark times of wokeness, Communism, and radical-leftism run amok. Those are the forces wishing destruction on our civilization, that would deny objective reality, in hopes of rebuilding their Utopia upon the millions who fundamentally disagree and must be purged, instead of simply accepting human nature for what it is.
- The creative, spiritual, and existential fulfillment I've received from engaging in fantasy roleplaying games (yes, like Dungeons & Dragons... but don't buy from Wizards of the Coast, they're woke) has opened my eyes to new possibilities, and continues to be at the forefront of my magical work. While it is certainly escapist entertainment, it's so much more than that. We are manifesting worlds, realities, and visions undreamt that can be accessed by the initiated and shared with anyone willing to participate... merging objective and subjective universes into a sorcerous, hyper-conscious state of being known as PSYCHOCOSM !!!
- The full legalization of cannabis, as in marijuana. Great strides on decriminalization have already been made, but there are still a variety of obstacles before the medicinal and recreational use of marijuana is accepted. In order to speed the process along, I'm officially declaring marijuana use a holy sacrament of the Cthulhu Cult. Let this God given right be recognized by every governing body across the land!
