The Narrative of Ba’al
“When you open your eyes, and look around you, you see you are not the only one cast out of society. With the light of reason no longer obscured by a mass collective of the docile and credulous, you can see the arbitrary social conventions, norms, and roles, for the irrational, detrimental things that they are.” —Narratives 2(Ba’al): 23-24
The Narrative of Ba’al is the second chapter in The Satanic Narratives: A modern Satanic Bible, and introduces the aspect of Ba’al: representing perseverance in the face of opposition.
Many people ask Satanists: “Why not just say you are atheists? Doesn’t it just hurt you to take on the mantle of such a maligned label?”
But a Satanist embraces outsider status. Satanists know that it makes life harder when you are quirky, a rebel, an outcast, a “weirdo”, a freak… but the benefits of individuality outweigh the costs. When you accept looks of judgment from others as a compliment rather than an embarrassment, you embrace that aspect of Ba’al.
