In another thread where I and others became 'off Topic'- I feel that my response should be a thread by itself.
So I have had a small Interview with myself in PlayBoy fashion to give clear understanding of my attitude to Crowley alias 'ol Al.
Q. Have you read anything about Crowley by anyone including Al himself?
A. Mucho plenti!
Q. Did you like anything?
A. Yes- The so called channeled work The Book of Law or Liber al, I think
it is known as and the Book of T (when I could fully understand it). Some
Biographies in part when they were'nt on a biased agenda.
Q. Is there anything out there written that you agree with/or is how you see
A. Yes this- http://www.mith.demon.co.uk/CROWLEY.htm
Q. Do you think Crowley a Devil Worshipper?
Q. An influential Occultist?
Q. A Majician?
Q. Do you like Thoth Tarot?
A. Yes I think it is beautiful
Q. Now the biggie! Do you think Crowley a Santanist?
A. In the terms of how it was understood 1900-1960 before leVey- yes I do
and although I am not going to re read Confessions again I have found
this partly pertinent quote ..to aspire with increasing fervour and concentration, for six months, towards the obtaining of the Knowledge and Conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel. Once He has appeared, it is then necessary, first, to call forth the Four Great Princes of the Evil of the World; next, their eight sub-princes; and, lastly, the three hundred and sixteen servitors of these.
Q. So no eating babies and the other diabolical things Al has been accused
of?..and do you think Gnostic Mass is wrong?
Q. Do you think this interview will clear things up?
A. Not really- because you either believe he was a Master or you don't.
