“Take heed lest thou art caught. If I do seize thee, nor with my club will I belabour thee, nor cruel wounds with the curved sickle will inflict on thee. Thrust into by my twelve-inch pole, thou shalt be so stretched that thou wilt think thy anus never had any wrinkles.”
— Epigram 10 The Priapeia with thanks to Brother Antonio
Ever since I was elevated into the position of High Priest/Pontifex and Leader of The Temple, men have been writing to me asking what they must do to affirm their devotion and commitment to Cock our Lord and Master. There has never been an official “Statement of Affirmation to Cock our God” that could be shared with individuals that may be on the internet or in locations where a Temple is not available. Since the website is our virtual Temple at this time, it only seemed fitting that a “Statement of Affirmation to Cock our God” be written. With the help of Brother Richard, that is now completed. You can find it here.
To all who visit the website wanting to affirm their belief in Cock as God — and who want to dedicate themselves to serving Him, and to The Temple of Priapus — I invite you to make that affirmation now. You can find the “Statement of Affirmation to Cock our God” here. When you are ready, or if you have made this commitment and have taken this step, I would ask that you write to me and share with me that you have taken this great and marvelous leap! Welcome to The Temple of Priapus and all that Our God has in store for you!
Men who walk the Path of the Phallic Fire seek no mere “release” of their sexual energy. They 𝘣𝘶𝘪𝘭𝘥 it, they 𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘥 to it, they 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘦 it and they 𝘳𝘦𝘫𝘰𝘪𝘤𝘦 in it. They 𝘤𝘩𝘰𝘰𝘴𝘦 to dwell within the endless Tower of His Lust. Your Lust. My Lust. Our Lust.
Each Man a Temple, each Man a House of God. Our Lust draws Us to Our Brothers to become One with the Divine. We come to Them to partake of Holy Communion. With lascivious joy We worship each other as fractals of the Beloved Masculine. Beautiful is the Lust of Men who love Men!
Over the past several months as more and more men have discovered The Temple website and have followed me on Twitter (@father_marc), the questions have been asked and the implications have been made that The Temple is – or might be – part of some Satanic group or cult. Many are drawn to this aspect. Many flee from it. And often men wonder what my standing is on the subject. I think it is time that this is addressed, openly and honestly.
Let me be clear in saying…I believe Cock – the Phallus – came first. He is the creator of all! He was seen as God prior to anything else – and was worshipped and revered in that way! There is evidence of this as far back as the caveman. The “t” that is used as a cross in Christianity today was a symbol of Cock and was used in writing, communication, and art – and it was used that way until the symbol was “stolen” from us to represent their religion. There is evidence of Cock worship in Egyptian artifacts – and there is evidence in many Asian cultures that Cock was and is still revered and worshipped. In fact, the Phallus was seen this way throughout the world (not so much in the U.S. however).
When the catholic church came along there was set in motion a God vs. Satan divide and the heaven and hell fantasy was developed. This was the start of control and power over man – and the manipulation through religion. In “The Temple of Priapus”, we believe the power of God is seen and felt through the Cock – the Phallus. Through Cock, God lives, loves and breathes! We don’t believe “God” is the Judeo-Christian God. Nor do we believe He is Lord Satan. If those were our deities, it is my belief that BOTH of those entities have gotten a lot of bad rap over the years. The Christian God is a very vengeful “my way or the highway” God. And Satan has become the ruler of the Lake of Fire, with horns and a tail and an evil distorted face. I don’t believe either of those depictions is true – but I’m not a believer of this religion! We see God’s beauty and love and power manifested THROUGH Cock. He is not a Christian, Satanic, Muslim, Jewish, or any other religious God. He is our own God.
Personally, I embrace some Christian teachings AND I embrace Satanic teachings as well, and I welcome, with open arms, those that follow Satanic thought – as well as those that follow Christian teachings. MANY would cringe in the Temple if they knew that I took that stance, but I am telling you now, I do. I also realize that in saying this, not everyone will stay and listen to my explanation as to why I embrace my Satanic brothers, but I ask that you do. The “why” doesn’t matter to most that fear Satan and they run in fear away from the evil red man with a tail and his “demonic” powers. Personally, I find enlightenment through Satan and the freedom to “be” who and what I am. There is an inclusion in the teachings that I find marvelous!! Satanic beliefs are not fully evil or destructive. Satan (if you believe the stories) was a beautiful angel. Christianity also has some beautiful truths as well. In the same breath, I will also admit to and acknowledge that there is a dark path in Satanism as well – and I believe there is the freedom for anyone to seek that path – just as there is the freedom of christians (lower case on purpose) to seek the “right-wing fundamentalist” bullshit of Christianity. Both of those extremes are as equally devastating and destructive!!! They are both EQUALLY as evil as the other!!! And BOTH of those are NOT of God!!! Neither of these paths is paths that we follow or support within the Temple!
As we all know, there is evil in this world!!! And the evil is growing!!! But I will not blame the beautiful Satan for that – as many seek to do – nor will I blame the Judeo-Christian God for that either! Evil comes from the minds of men that seek to attain power and control, for and by themselves…and they seek to bring others along to join them. They are seeking to BECOME God…and they will go to any length to achieve that objective. Little do they realize that their lives are finite and they will end – and they will never become God! But that makes no difference to them. Sadly they will destroy others and anything in their path! But THIS IS NOT OF GOD – Satanic or Christian…or any other religion!!!!
So in order to answer the questions – and to bring understanding to The Temple – one would have to be under the assumption that “The Temple of Priapus” is based on Christian beliefs. That there is a Christian God and there is the evil counterpart, Satan. This is not true! We are not a Temple that is based on Judeo-Christian belief. So, our God who is Cock is not “Satanic” nor is he another form of “Jesus Christ”. Cock is God is God is Cock.
If the higher power that you believe in comes from God – or of Satan – Cock can, and surely could become a manifestation of that God or Higher Power. And because our human brains are limited as to what we can understand about the unknown and spiritual – perhaps this is the best we can do and the most accurate explanation that we can offer. We can certainly go down the path of mystics and spiritual explanations (but most individuals these days aren’t willing to take the time or energy for that) – so this is for the average man coming into The Temple off the street – who has never encountered much beyond Sunday School, Easter or Christmas – this is the best explanation I can offer to you. And you are the ones I hope to reach out to the most. If you are interested to delve into this further, I am absolutely willing to go down that road with you!
So, having said all of that, I reach down and I touch my God who has chosen me to be His carrier! And I pray! I worship! I love! I feel empowered! I feel the truth! I hope! I give! I receive! I know!
Rather than a Place, the Temple is a State of Awareness, a Lifestyle, the certainty that the Divine Masculine is manifested in the Flesh, Mind and Heart of your Brother and Yourself. So many lives spent looking for God everywhere else; awaken to the Truth of God within.
