Satanism existing in the church seems as contradictory as a KKK member at a new black panthers meeting, but this controversial practice allegedly occurred in the past.
The HBO series True Detective, which had its season finale this past Sunday started some interesting conversations about the occult, its connection to the government and its ability to conceal itself in religious institutions, particularly those that are Christian.

"According to our records, we have never had any contact from this woman, nor her accomplice," said Magus Peter Gilmore, head priest of the Church of Satan, according to CNN.
