Monday morning satanism

October 25th, 2004

A satanist has been allowed to serve on a Royal Navy ship. According to BBC news (which covers the story in the same manner as the “and finally” stories you’d find at the end of your local TV news bulletin:

Mr Cranmer said that was when he stumbled across a copy of the Satanic Bible, written by Church of Satan founder Anton Szandor LaVey.

He said: “I then read more and more and came to realise I’d always been a Satanist, just simply never knew.”

Ann Widdecombe is pretty pissed off about it but I’d love to see this guy wearing his devil horns and fork with a cloud of red smoke around him whilst all the sailors look on in utter bemusement. Strange.
