Subject: Aleister Crowley

Sometimes I think ppl have a few things backwards. He was not a satanist. He practiced magick. Heading toward the Egyptian and Greek influences, the Kabbalah and Muslem Mystics mostly.
The Satanists considered Crowley one of their influences. Not the other way around. (Having read his biography which says that the group approached him about his writings and asked if they could incorporate his works into their teachings)
Don’t you think followers should know and speak the truth when they put stuff out there?
I’m a huge metal and heavy rock fan from late 60’s early 70’s. A lot of groups were quoting Crowley’s teachings in their songs so I read his biography to find out what the noise was about. That is all I know of him so it stuns me when I know more than some of his so called followers do. 😛
What do you know about Crowley?
