    Don't beat yourself up about it and don't let this give you a bad view on Satanic religions, if you still feel like learning about them. (Also learn about others too. Always a good thing. :P) I do, once again, highly recommend these sites: http://theisticsatanism.com/ and http://www.spiritualsatanist.com/ (Medusa's LaVayen Satanism thread might be a good place to look too... which is over here.)

    And add 'in accordance with the prophecy' after every few sentences to lend it credibility.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: Was I brainwashed into a cult?

    I don't think the dedication actually has enough lines for that to work though it would have been funny if it did. As it is you'd get in about twice and it's iffy if it'd work with the phrasing.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    Lightbulb Re: Was I brainwashed into a cult?

    Well, I've been doing my research, and i've found my new religion... WICCAN!!!!

    After my research, I read about Paganism and Wicca, and tey seemed right for me, after the "Joy Of Satan" experience, I don't want to be a Satanist anymore...
    But, I still like them, now, that the brainwashing is gone, I hate no religion, Jews are pretty cool, I always respected Blacks and I think Hitler was a coward!

    But, thanks for all the replies.

    I guess it would be funny if the "dedication ritual" worked. There is'nt many lines at all. Plus there was no blood on the paper, however i did leave saliva on it... But its still load of SH!T!!!!

    Re: Was I brainwashed into a cult?

    Dedications have their uses. I'm just not fond of that one. That and certain degrees of pretention tend to attract mockery which I think is part of why Caelia and Perze are making fun of it. I would suggest not making any oaths for a while. Wicca (in many if not most forms) doesn't require any sacred vows of beginners so there's little need to rush.

    To steal from a movie,

    "You should be slow to give your word and quick to keep it."

    There are occasions where forswearing a pledge is appropriate but it's much better not to give them out casually than it is to break them lightly.

    Re: Was I brainwashed into a cult?

    Most of mine comes from knowing the origin of that "dedication ritual". It came from various Witch Trials (maybe even the Maleus Maleficarum) where people were tortured into saying that's how they dedicated themselves to Satan. Yeah, doesn't hold a lot of water for someone like me.

    Though I may take Perze's advice in adding "in accordance with the prophecy" as I read stuff in my dark, ominous voice. Especially recipes like this yummy apple fritter recipe I found from a restaurant I used to love as a child.

    Re: Was I brainwashed into a cult?

    How do you "Undedicate" or Reverse the Satanic Dedication ritual. I still respect Satan, but I do not feel Satanism is right for me.

    Could anyone show me a good site for undedication. I've looked ALL over google.



    Many Thanks.

    The way I see it, there's no reason to make it a ritual. I guess if you must you could create a contract like the dedication one and just write an addendum saying how the previous contract is null and void.

    Ok, so I did the same thing as the dedication ritual but I said that it was now void and null. I hope it worked! I think it did, I did not feel good afterwards...
