Nothing new there.  Michelangelo faced the same problem with his God, who is assuredly not an old guy with a grey beard.


At least Muslims don't have that problem.




The old guy with a grey beard is the Ancient of Days, usually identified with God the Father in Catholicism.

Some here would consider a statue of Obama as a perfect representation.



I'd noticed that. It's just plain sad to watch even previously sensible conservatives give in to the derangement. I mean, no-one ever worshipped Obama (no matter how conservatives lie) and the guy and his administration have plenty of faults one could go after but apparently, not enough that they don't have to make shit up about him.

One of Lord Lucifer's titles is "Great Dragon" so I have a dragon statue on my altar to symbolise him. I'll admit my childlike love of dragons made that an easy decision.


We use a lot of different symbols. Like many faiths, we use the five-point star and the flame (both representing enlightenment). The Temple of Set uses a styalised representation of Set. Some use an inverted cross although I'm not a big fan of that as I think it's disrespectful to Jesus (it's god I have an issue with, not Jesus). The goat's head is a pretty common one.

Thinking out loud here: Since Lucifer was once the most beautiful Angel and God's right hand, before he chose to "think for himself", wouldn't it be proper to still have wings.. to go along the the dragon theme? I also like dragons. Growing up I believed they were real..
