He refers to Crowley's formula for the human sacrifice of children via
(I heard that thought).

I.e. Crowley was taking literally the Catholic assertion that "every
sperm is sacred" so that spanking ones monkey or performing any other
Onanistic act would be murder on the scale of hundreds of thousands.
Crowley used the half serious pun on this Catholic doctrine as a way of
illustrating certain sexual magick practises.

>shooting heroin, injecting drugs does not a con man make. 

 W.S. Burroughs, Edgar Allen Poe, Jimi Hendrix and many of my other
favorite artists weren't exactly "con men," and their Heroin use certainly
doesn't make them immoral.

 Crowley, of course, was indeed a shiester and a mountebank, though it
seems to me he was a most benign, brilliant and interesting shiester
(outstanding mountainclimber and chess master if nothing else), with lots
of wit and erudition to share. 
 Hubbard wasn't fit to wipe Crowley's arse in so far as actual knowledge,
but Crowley was a piker compared to Hubbard in terms of con-artistry.

"I pine for the sheer stupidity of the old macho days, when men would 
brandish hammers and build huge, bulky cars that sucked up gas and tore
open the ozone layer and crushed small animals beneath totally useless but
totally cool-looking tail fins." -Dennis Leary
