Bulgaria’s Satanists will demand their sect to be recognized and promulgated as an official religion by the Bulgarian Directorate on Ecclesiastical Matters, Standart newspaper reported Monday.
There are politicians in the sect of Bulgaria’s Satanists, its head Rumen Atanasov announced Saturday in an interview for Darik Radio.
There are more than 100 people, who are members of the Argenteum Astrum Order, politicians among them, Atanasov, who is the head of the order in Bulgaria added.
According to the newly adopted law on religion, the Satanists must register themselves as a religion in court and not in the Directorate on Ecclesiastical Matters.
According to another newspaper, members of the ultra-nationalist party Ataka and of the Union of Democratic Forces also belong to the satanic order.
Modern Satanism was founded by Aleister Crowley, who created a doctrine, whose main principle is “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law”.
