thepurplemange asked: To be more exact, the upside-down cross is actually ONLY a symbol of devout Christianity. While popular culture has often misrepresented it as a Satanist symbol, the actual church of Satanism (at least the LeVay sort) have never adopted it. It's called the Cross of St. Peter and is meant as a ward of protection and of submission to God and is most famously used to adorn the robes and home of no lesser than the pope himself.
soylentpeopleisgreen asked: regarding the inverted cross - that is a symbol equally associated with devout christianity, as well as satanism. by itself, an inverted cross is just as likely to mean humble faith as it is anti-christianity. there are certainly other satanist icons represented here too, but many are common in pop culture and not strongly indicative of religious ties, as you said.
yes exactly. you would have to ask the girls / models personally if they identify as such since people use symbols all the time without necesarily believing in what they stand for. even the satanic cross itself is also used as the symbol meaning sulfur, so you never really know why a person is using a certain symbol.
brianlamontburgess asked: Is it just me, or do most of the models on this blog seem to be practicing Satanists? I've noticed quite a few upside down crosses and accessories with Baphomet's image printed on them. Just wondering if all of this was part of the subculture being promoted here.
you know, i have definitely noticed this as well. i know a few are legit practicing satanists, but i think a lot just like the imagery and some of the ideas but dont label themselves as one. i would not say that as a whole subculture promotes that idea. i think its kind of like how a lot of heavy metal bands are satanists but some are just into the image and others are into different ideas entirely.
