What accusation would that be? I asked a question.

I don't need a schooling on LaVeyian Satanism. I am much aware
that LaVey was an atheist and hedonist. I posted this question
on the Paracast forum and a member posted a picture of them
together. You can view the picture at the link below.


I think this woud be a fascinating topic to ask Vallee about if
he ever does any more interviews.
