    As a Catholic, that's a low shot. A Black Mass is blasphemy, heresy, and a mockery of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. You (and others on this board) may not believe like I do (or others on this board), but pot shots are beneath your powerful intellect.

        You think Kepler's (non)belief is held any less sincerely than yours? Or is somehow less legitimate - his is a second-class belief in your mind? Fortunately, the US government disagrees with you even if US culture does not - a few billion more shots like that and it might come close to equaling the number of shots Christians take at non-believers, Muslims, Jews, gays, etc every. single. day. Better be able to take it if you want to dish it out - there is no right not to be offended.
        If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

            Well hold on a second, let's talk about this. Let me say in advance though that if you personally take mentions of the Black Mass as a knee to the groin, that was not what I was getting at in my post. I was after a different low blow.

            First of all, I doubt very much whether these Satanists are in any way interested in Catholicism. They've got their liturgy and I don't expect them to have any more sophisticated sense of its historiography than the typical Catholic does about his own rituals. I doubt Satanists are any more interested in specifically mocking Catholics than say Pastafarians are. I do suspect that as with FSM there is a strong sense of the mocking all organized religious observance for "Satanism." It seems like a rather ordinary exercise in "Middle Finger Philosophizing" where the (typically sophomoric) subject feels that the act of shocking people is ipso facto profound, like wearing an anarchy t-shirt or proposing Reaganomics as a legitimate economic theory.

            Secondly, even if they did, mockery is fair game under the First Amendment.

            Personally, though raised as a Catholic by extremely pious Catholics who I revere, I don't take the Black Mass as anything other than grist for Hammer films. I even always have to look up when Candlemass Eve is (it's February 2).

              It's not blasphemy or heresy for those who don't believe. As far as mockery, I believe that may be the point. It doesn't make it any less protected by the first amendment (and indeed, almost more so since there's no need to protect popular speech).

              The best response would be to ignore it, not go ape **** over it. It's less than 100 people attending this thing. Giving them publicity is exactly what they want.

                I assumed that joecct was referring to "fake good spirit" as the low shot, not the fact that Kepler brought up the Satanic thingy.

                  That's what I assumed the objection would be , but the comment honed in on the Black Mass as a parody of the Catholic mass, which IINM it actually was in the beginning, but at this point I do not think practicing Satanists identify so much as anti-Catholic as pro-Satan.

                                You know that movie "Waiting"? That is darn near a documentary on the restaurant business. I may or may not have had experiences/knowledge of said experiences in that movie. Or worse.
                                Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
