Anyone who has my book knows why I infiltrated their Order in the first place. You can not criticize something until you have first hand knowledge of it. I was never one of them, I was always just me doing my research, same as when I got involved with Islam and all the other things I researched.
If we were a cult we would be the same as them, and keep telling people they can't leave, when in reality we encourage people to leave if they don't have ears to hear and eyes to see, because we know that not everyone is ready to face facts and prefer to live in cognitive dissonance.
Notice that all the people who attack me do so because we removed them, NOT because they decided to leave themselves. And given the chance they would be back here with us, because they know they got very close to something and they messed up. So they don't want you getting something they haven't got, so they demonise us. Don't fall for it.
Fact 1, Thelema is cock worship and is very patriarchal. One of their initiation ceremonies does involve the Aspirant being bent over the Altar and having a golden cock shoved up their arse.
Fact 2, They have a Mass where a naked woman is sat on the Altar. Why are the men not naked too? If you look in terms of Master slave relationship, the slave is always naked and the Master fully clothed. This is because when you are naked you are vulnerable. The women are seen as slaves in Thelema and vast majority of Thelemites are indeed very into BDSM.
Fact 3, It is Freemasonry, they call all members 'Brothers' you can't get more unbalanced and sexist than that!
Fact 4, As with Freemasonry they are under the Roman Catholic Church - secretly, but not so secret to those high up in the Orders. This is also true of the Golden Dawn and other sexist Orders.
Fact 5, OTO makes a lot of money, just like Freemasonry and the Roman Catholic Church. What crimes do you think that money funds? Seeing as Aleister Crowley himself was involved in espionage and bomb making?
Fact 6, Thelema's Prophet - Crowley, was a horrible vulture of a man, who ruined a lot of lives. Yet he was supposed to be some enlightened being? He took hard drugs, preformed depraved sexual acts and leached money off other people. He was a thoroughly disgusting man, and not a good role model for anyone.
Be involved with Thelema if you want, if that makes you happy, but do not go round calling anyone who knows the truth about it a 'black brother' when any Magickian knows there is no such thing as black or white magick, and they happen to be a 'sister'.
Remember Thelemites - 93
If you are going to preach it, believe it for everyone and not just yourselves.
