The only viable Satanic newsgroup is alt.satanism. I recently heard a
rumor that aol refused to carry that newsgroup -- you might check
with them and see if it's true, and what you might do to get them to
support their paying customers in this area.

There's also a mailing list maintained by a member of the Temple of

after Columbus Day (also celebrated by Chaoticists for no apparent

No, actually because it's so much fun, Halloween probably is a "major"
holiday for Satanists. When else can I wear my full-length black cape
on the streets and hardly get a second glance? But there's nothing
more sinister than that.
