Blind Items Revealed

April 9, 2008

I figure since I am always rightfully bashing Scientology, I thought I would share something about the "religion" of another actor. This late 20 something A-/B+ film actor has a little secret that belies his primarily clean cut image. He is a devout follower of Anton LaVey. He has a first edition Satanic Bible which was personally signed by LaVey. Our actor also has the number 9 tattooed on himself to signify the nine rituals of the Satanic Church. He even went so far as to purchase some land where he and other followers use to practice many of these rituals.

James Franco

Makes him kinda hotter ; )

Count Jerkula said...

It is probably a schtick to snare bims with, which is more respectable that $cientology.

TalksTooMuch said...

He's so deep and method

fancyscreenname said...

He's a wackadoodle. Still like him despite. Not going to any house parties with him though.

Derek Harvey said...

of course the other 2 delinquents comment immediately haha

shopgirl said...

If this is a made-up blind, it's silly. If it's true, it's still silly.

chopchop said...

This creeps me out.

laura ramona said...

Hotter my arsss. do you know what rituals they practice? If you knew you would find it big sh**t and nightmares

auntliddy said...

Yes, chopster correct, creepy to the max.

gee-gee said...

James Franco could have full-on public sex with several men and I still wouldn't believe him to be gay. Everything he does is for effect. So, if this is true I'm surprised he hasn't told everyone. He should hook up with GaGa and they could perpetrate a lot of fake bullshit together.

S.joy said...

Had no idea there was such a thing as a Satanic Bible.

epiphany said...

How silly - and done to death. Thought we got over this schtick about the time we saw Ozzy cleaning up dog doo-doo. Besides, this guy is all about attention. He probably does it knowing it will freak some people out.

WareCat said...

Jayne Mansfield was a satanist too.
she was banging Anton up until she died.

Satanism follows the same practice as Wicca, except Wicca sees their "god" as a diety, where as Satanism sees their "god" as yourself. u are your own "god".
they are the only 2 religions that accept homosexuality too.

JW said...

Say what! So Christianity isn't a religion because I know the church I just got back from attending accepts homosexuality and so do the Anglicans. And my church isn't either Scientology or Satanism. Not only are you narrow minded, you are just plain idiotic.

FrenchGirl said...

James Franco would be the first satanist vegan in the world

maybe it's true :he does a video for his band DADDY who is very "satanist"
http://www.blackbookmag.com/watch-james-franco-turn-kenneth-anger-into-an-occult-priest-in-the-video-for-love-in-the-old-days/
the problem is that with Franco,it's all "performance" all time even his private life

Seven of Eleven said...

So, the BatFacial was really an offering?

Kristin said...

I remember the popular guess for this one was Orlando, which probably would be the only interesting about him.

Harlow17 said...

he is ridiculous and embarrassing at this point

MISCH said...

Since I can't stand the phony this only makes me dislike him more

Ms Cool said...

BS

Sandy said...

OMG. So Franco, of all the actors in Hollywood, really HAS made a pact with his Dark Lord Satan. I'll bet he and Dick Cheney are secret buddies.

Derek Harvey said...

I believe this post as much as I actually believe in Satan for the record---I dont!

WareCat said...

first off JW, shut your mouth w/ the name calling.
if your church allows same sexes to marry, thats fukn badass!
what i was implying was, not many churches allowed that b4 politics got involved.
many same sex marriages were usually preformed in front of a judge or minister.
not a priest.

Blonde Galore said...

So they sacrificed goats and killed virgins?

Angela Warren said...

Oh boy....Belinda Carlisle, lead singer of Go Go's, also had the first satanic "bible" she admitted when she was 15.

Goodness that ish freaks me out. If its true. Im gonna be looking for that 9 tattoo.

Hammer_Girl said...

He reminds me of the goth kids in middle school piercing their own eyebrows with safety pins in the back of the classroom. He's hardcore yo!

Rach Around said...

@TTM: totes. That, and his blow up girlfriend Kiki.

auntliddy said...

This is a bunch of hoey. And satan so called bible, and worship and wiccin stuff is a bunch of crap. Its not any kind of religion, just nonesense.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Real satanism has nothing to do with sacrifices and crap. Tbh, I think the LaVey satanism doens't even do rituals, so this blind is BS. LaVey satanism is all about believing in yourself, not in a god or devil.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

And how was James Franco A- in 2008? He had only done Spiderman 3 at the time and some crappy romcoms/uncredited work.

Hammer_Girl said...

Per Wiki

Satanists do not believe in the supernatural, in neither God nor the Devil. To the Satanist, he is his own God. Satan is a symbol of Man living as his prideful, carnal nature dictates. The reality behind Satan is simply the dark evolutionary force of entropy that permeates all of nature and provides the drive for survival and propagation inherent in all living things. Satan is not a conscious entity to be worshiped, rather a reservoir of power inside each human to be tapped at will. Thus any concept of sacrifice is rejected as a Christian aberration—in Satanism there’s no deity to which one can sacrifice.

Derek Harvey said...

so I guess I am a satanist...my parents will be so proud...

lesbianeatwhat said...

see just makes him cooler. he should hook up with the guy who did the farrah abrams porno, was it james peen? man that guy loves himself

childeroland said...

So his religion is less acceptable than any other because...

WareCat said...

right on Hammer_Girl.
believe me, i'm not a fukn Satanist, i embrace all religions.
ppl just get freaked out by the word Satan.
one thing that pisses me off tho, is many refer the upside down cross, to Satan.
which its totally not.
its the cross of St. Peter.
he was crucified, like Jesus.
but Peter had to much respect for Jesus, that if he was to die like him, he wanted to be crucified, upside down.

Rach Around said...

I've forgotten how to do clickys (help, please?) but apparently Barbara Bush is the daughter of Aleister Crowley (would explain a LOT)

Sarah said...

Yes indeed!

Kristin said...

Mazel, Derek.

__-__=__ said...

I read that Marilyn Monroe was also close to LaVey.

msgirl said...

So Satanism and the modern Kabala are pretty much the same in that you are your own god. Interesting. Self-serving!

Count Jerkula said...

@Liddy: All religion is nonsense.

Satanism is nothing more than an attempt to justify narcissism.

AIP said...

Sounds like bullcrap to be honest, but it is good gossip if true.

Wasn't that Crowley/ Barbara Bush thing an April Fools joke that people took way too seriously.

The best bit of Crowley gossip I heard recently was that he was engaged to designer Eileen Gray. I thought that was mind-boggling especially as I didn't think he (or indeed any man) was her type.

AKM said...

Good Lord. Barbara Bush's father was Marvin Pierce, president of McCall's Publishing.

AKM said...

And as others have noted, real Satanists don't actually have weird rituals. Sheesh. (THE SATANIC WITCH is kind of a fun read.)

Rach Around said...

I have a theory.
Santa, Satan. Anagrams.
Both wear red, both like giving gifts to small children.

Ja'mie King said...

I was coming here to say the same thing, seems like Orly had other demons tho.

Ja'mie King said...

The satanic bible is actually an interesting read, the most basic concept I remember was that turning the other cheek was basically for the weak, and you have the rights and responsibilities to act in what you perceive are your best interests at all times. Really not much different than the way a lot of people act, and I think people would be surprised as to the content of the book, nary a spell or sacrifice to be found (that I can recall).

alisontheoriginal said...

Zaza Gabor too.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

There is NO James Franco. There is only the James Franco Experience, and performance art piece/put-on. It will last his entire life. There will be Andy Kaufman-esque rumors about him long after he is gone. Some of them, may eventually prove correct.

fancyscreenname said...

@Elliot

^5 on your post. Lol

Frida said...

Edgy.

B. Profane said...

This BI is total crap. Franco would surely know that LaVey's "church" was all a campy goof. In his last years LaVey was a figure in the SF post-punk scene, and debunked all the stories about himself with wry good humor.

His CD of organ music is a hoot, though. Check out his cover of "Honolulu Baby."

auntliddy said...

Count, that is what i was coming on here to say! Lol. Religion is mans way of fighting his darker side.

B626 said...

Yes I call BS on this reveal

Evan Whitsell said...

I am Evan's complete lack of surprise.

Sherry said...

Hammer Girl..Thanks for the info. Very helpful.

I'd be surprised if this blind was real. I'm thinking it's not.

Ja'mie King- Are you the REAL Ja'mie? Just discovered that recently and it's hilarious!

TalksTooMuch said...

Evan, that just made me so nostalgic for that book! Must dig it oot

Seven of Eleven said...

I don't know, @B Profane. He named his kid Satan Xerxes. I guess that's commitment either way.

Anyway, what happened on turkey day to land you in jail?

marie-ski said...

+100000 count
it had its purpose, we should be moving on to
more mathematical/science "worship" or whatever you'd like
to call it, if we as a species want to progress.

AKM said...

Truth, IIAlsoRC. It's not neatly as scary/creepy as fokks think. It's basically...humanism? No, that's not right. What's the philosophy I'm thinking of? Drunk on eggnog for real, I am. At any rate, yes, it's basically just the idea that we don't have to fight our lustful, selfish natures, because we're just being human animals, after all.

B. Profane said...

"I don't know, @B Profane. He named his kid Satan Xerxes. I guess that's commitment either way."

I knew people who hung out with LaVey in SF in the 90's. He played his role to the hilt but Satanism was all just a big goof to him.

"Anyway, what happened on turkey day to land you in jail?"

Eh, jail happens. It's amazing that I've been busted so few times, given the life I've lead. It wasn't a DUI or domestic violence pop, if that's what you're asking.

The worst part was the loonie in the unit who would periodically get control of the TV so that he could sing along with Miley's "Wrecking Ball" video. I shit you not, a 300 lb white trash manic depressive, covered in bad tatts, dancing around in just his boxers bellowing out "Wrecking Ball"...over and over and over.

I spent the long weekend with my ears plugged with prison asswipe, re-reading "Grapes of Wrath." It seemed fitting.

Cee Kay said...

Eh. I've read Anton's book. Like every other book, it's got some good points and some ridiculous ones. And yes, as others have pointed out, most of it is just about the teaching that the Self is the centre of the universe. Not really my style. We're Unitarian - and totally accepting of homosexuality, by the way, @WareCat.

WareCat said...

by the way Cee Kay, Unitarians believe that God is Jesus, which defeats the whole purpose of Jesus being Gods son.

like i fukn' said b4,
your church may accept homosexuality, but did they have the honor to bless a same sex marriage?

Shane said...

fancyscreenname said it best: He's a wackadoodle. (IF this BI is true which I wouldn't bet on)

Renoblondee said...

Interesting reading this post. You guys always learn me something new!

Anna said...

Satanism? It's Ayn Rand with goth costumes and piercings with off-shoots of creepy kids and sadists.

Catherine said...

James franco doesn't have tattoos

Iceberg said...

Franco is such a pretentious twat.

AKM said...

"by the way Cee Kay, Unitarians believe that God is Jesus, which defeats the whole purpose of Jesus being Gods son."

No, they don't. There is in fact no actual dogma or official deity in the UU church.

Eros said...

@ Fancy.. Agreed on all accounts. plus its just not cool at all. What is his mantra burning babies, worshipping satan, rejoicing when evil is done. There s nothing nice or good about Satanism. I hope this isnt true but I think it is.

italiangal56 said...

He is repulsive.

Unknown said...

I don't care what anyone's stupid religion is, but anyone who hurts animals to practice their religious nonsense is evil and a real asshole. Don't hurt animals over this stupid shit.

Henriette said...

Wait this "scholar" is dumb enough to follow huckster Anton Levay? Anton was an outright fraud making money off of stupid people.

SrslyMike said...

Honestly? I saw shitloads upon shitloads of LaVey's photos. That dude must have been some Satanic pussywrecker, to say nothing of his celebrity status. Maybe Franco is going for that sort of schtick too. Ruthless hedonism and chicks. Where do I sign up?

Frosty said...

Satanic? I'm stunned he's considered A-/B+

di butler said...

What I was going to say, AppleThief. There is only "Franco The Art," everything he does from taking a poop to going to the dentist.
