This was explained by the OTO's David Bottrill in the formal complaint against us. He wrote that these principles are taught through a graded series of degrees, or initiations, and are understood through practical engagement with these mysteries in the initiate's own life. But the OTO members don't just practice these principles. Right from the first degrees of the O.T.O. initiates swear to defend the principles of the Book of the Law.
More insight into this dangerous organisation, (whose members form a network including some top names in politics, media and business) was provided in an email to us from a rival faction.
This OTO member wanted to correct us for calling the OTO "Satanists". He thought he should tell us,
"As for being Satanists we deny this. We make any Satanism look like a two year old crying baby, relatively speaking. We sincerely believe the world must be bathed in blood before the Law of Thelema is generally accepted. See Magick in Theory and Practice and the chapter on the Bloody Sacrifice for further details." http://www.rahoorkhuit.net/library/crowley/magick.html ( search the page for "bloody sacrifice" or "bathed in blood")
What this says is that, according to the OTO Dogma, the Initiation of a New Aeon (The Age of Horus) requires that the whole Planet must be bathed in blood. The "Great War" must be fought before man is ready to accept the Law of Thelema.
It is quite safe to say that The Book of the Law is the easy guide to understanding the insane mindset of the OTO. However, a particularly useful further document that has come to our attention is The Old and New Commentaries to Liber AL http://www.hermetic.com/220/crowley-comment.html which clarifies how the Book of the Law (Liber AL) is to be interpreted regarding sexual behaviour with children, among other things.
It tells us that:
Every man, woman and intermediately-sexed individual is free to interpret and communicate self by means of any sexual practices at all, regardless of ethical, legal or religious concerns, etc, provided that all parties are fully aware of all implications and responsibilities and heartily agree.
However, if a woman asks why a man wants to kiss her, he may choke her into submission.
Mutual consent is a condition. But such consent is not always explicit. Behaviour seen by one person as seduction or rape may by considered to be emancipation or initiation by another.
All possible acts are permissible with all possible partners, whatever you sexual predilections may be.
All children shall be accustomed from infancy to witness every type of sexual act to prevent a fog of falsehood and mystery stupefying their minds which "might thwart and misdirect the growth of their subconscious system of soul-symbolism. "
Incest, adultery and paederasty, "which everyone now practices with humiliating precautions" are authorised.
Murder of a faithless partner is ethically excusable, ...because there may be some stars* whose nature is extreme violence.
The motto accompanying these sexual acts is "excess". (*Every man and woman is a star.)
1. Any kind of sex.
That's what we've been saying about the Ordo Templi Orientis. That's what it says about itself!
Victorian police, government leaders, church leaders and other concerned responsible authorities - please finally empty your ranks of OTO and other Freemason adherents and take action now against these dangerous criminals who are empowered by your silence. Please also send this message to the Equal Opportunity Commission of Victoria, who still has not cleared us of the complaint lodged against us by this tax exempt religious cult.
Love Under Will
In case there was any misunderstanding regarding what is meant in The Book of the Law by “Love under Will”, OTO prophet Aleister Crowley wrote the following, as quoted by OTO founder Theodor Reuss in his manifesto (from The Secret Rituals of the O.T.O.).
Love is a by-product of Will.
Love does not contradict or supersede that Will.
Hate is almost like love.
Fighting is certainly love.
"The Love of Liber Legis is always bold, virile, ecstatic, even orgiastic."
I,44: For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect. (The Book of the Law)
'Thou hast no right but to do thy will. Do that and no other shall say "nay". ' (The Book of the Law)
Predictably, this doesn't really override loyalty to the rules of the order. As it is explained in the Minerval ritual, if it is your will to enter the OTO army as a spy to destroy your comrades, so be it! But if you break the oath, expect to be mutilated and be "no more a man".
Worship of Abaddon, the Evil One
Revelations 9:11 And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.
There is no shortage of references to worship and adoration of figures historically associated with evil in the O.T.O material. This following one should be of particular interest to Freemasons who still think the brotherhood is compatible with their understanding of Christianity and to any who aren’t aware of their ignorant usefulness to the controlling group. Higher ranking Freemasons who are not OTO members also use the word Abaddon. "I cover it with my left hand, and you look over your right shoulder and say Abaddon, which refers to the Evil One." (18th degree initiation rite of the Knight of the Pelican and Eagle Sovereign Prince Rose Croix of Heredom.) (Please study our Masonic degrees page here..)
In an Ordo Templi Orientis song, Song of the Perfect Initiate, (from The Secret Rituals of the OTO, Part Two, The Rituals Themselves, Council of Princes of Jerusalem) the meaning is less ambiguous. This song expresses scorn for the Simple Mason "...Princes of Jerusalem, How we mock and scoff at them!" and praise to Abaddon, ie. praise to annihilation. Take note Freemason dupes!
There is, " …a danger inherent in all secretive societies for their cellular form devised by the founders for the security of the movement, can as readily be used to 'hoodwink' the leadership, who thus become unwitting 'front men ' for activities they would never countenance." (from Steven Knight's The Brotherhood.)
Children in Sexual Rituals
The Gnostic Mass, performed by the OTO, is a ritual which, at the least, is a symbolic enactment of the sex act between opposites - the Priest and the Priestess. They are waited upon by two children.
“The priestess must have divested herself completely of her robe…”
I,62: At all my meetings with you shall the priestess say-and her eyes shall burn with desire as she stands bare and rejoicing in my secret temple-To me! To me! calling forth the flame of the hearts of all in her love-chant. (Book of the Law)
An article by Frater V.I.T.R.I.O.L in the Lion and Serpent, The Official Journal of Sekhet –Maat Lodge OTO, Vol 5 No 3 http://www.sekhetmaat.com/www/html/journal/issues.html ) explains that we can learn everything we need to know about the Gnostic Mass by studying the Lovers card in the Thoth deck, and then its completion in the Art card. The lovers card contains a naked man and woman and two small naked children amongst various symbols, including an eagle and lion (waiting on the sidelines?). In the Art card the lion and eagle are feeding on some seemingly gory mass being delivered to a vessel by a two headed being which probably represents the two adults merged as one.
Is this ritual sometimes carried out with real sexual acts? Common sense provides the answer. The Baphomet Lodge (California) newsletter Baphomet Breeze, Volume III - Number 3, Autumnal Equinox, 1988, ran an explicit sounding account without comment, excerpted from Jurgen by James Branch Cabell, Copyright (c) 1919, 1928. Another dialogue recorded in a Baphomet Breeze newsletter suggests that orgies take place after their Gnostic Masses, which is not surprising considering the Book of the Law verses which are in praise of lust.
II,22: I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory, and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! They shall not harm ye at all. It is a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not that any God shall deny thee for this. (Book of Law)
Meanwhile, in its Handbook, the US Grand Lodge (last revised Feb1999) warns its members among other things that violent behaviour, abuse of children and criminal conduct are considered greatly prejudicial to the purposes of the Order. (Perhaps this is to protect its non-profit, tax-exempt corporation status! ) On the other hand, the Fairfax, California, OTO Newsletter, Vol. II. number 1, W'l.#5,April 7, 1992, talks about the "so-called" Solar Lodge, who are not to be trifled with. It contains a reminder that they, the Solar Lodge group, were busted on felony child abuse charges over the famous "boy in the box" case at Bythe, California.
III,43: Let the Scarlet Woman beware! If pity and compassion and tenderness visit her heart; if she leave my work to toy with old sweetnesses; then shall my vengeance be known. I will slay me her child: I will alienate her heart: I will cast her out from men: as a shrinking and despised harlot shall she crawl through dusk wet streets, and die cold and an-hungered. (Book of Law)
Regarding child sacrifice, Aleister Crowley in his Magic in Theory and Practice makes plain what is consistent with the Book of the Law references. He writes that only the Master of the Temple can say whether any given act is a crime. In response to expressions of horror from "the ignorant" about killing innocent children, the "knower" will rush to strangle the child and remark that the child "will become Nero" , who was as necessary as Julius Caesar).
There are other explicit references in the OTO material to child sacrifice and consumption of a baby's flesh, although this is not a direct admission that it was practiced by Crowley. See Crowley’s Sex-Magical Instructions, Of the Secret Marriages of Gods with Men, A Secret Instruction of the Eighth Degree.
( Also worth noting in this document is the reference to ON (Osiris) which is known to Royal Arch Freemasons as part of the true name of "God" - JABULON. )
And what does it mean, in Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis when one participant asks, "Are the brethren fed? and the answer is, "Upon the corpses of their children"? Is this “poetry” too? And when Crowley explains the following in his Magick in Theory and Practice ( http://www.rahoorkhuit.net/library/crowley/magick.html ) are we supposed to think of this as metaphor?
It is unwise to condemn the practice of savages who tear the heart and liver from an adversary and consume them while warm.
To achieve the highest spiritual working you must choose the victim which contains the greatest and purest force.
A perfectly innocent and highly intelligent male child is the best victim.
Bloody, human sacrifice is best.
Of course “the profane” (the name for non-Freemasons) are not going to be told what really goes on. And, as in normal Freemasonry, those in the lower degrees have little idea what’s going on in the higher degrees, like in the Eleventh, about which nothing is said whatever in any (other?) grade. It has no relation to the general plan of the order. It is inscrutable and dwells in its own palace.
What more have we learned from a brief skimming through of some of the voluminous texts and documents produced by the OTO, aside from The Book of the Law? The above collection of examples shows a total consistency with The Book of The Law despite the relevant sections being almost submerged by tons and tons of nonsensical, irrational and obscene intellectual self-gratification, (with an irresistible mystique for complete idiots). This religion’s creators must be laughing in their graves.
After-all, in Of the Nature of the Gods, A Secret Instruction of the Seventh Degree Crowley explains that people who profess to be orthodox in their faith, but only as a convenient means of dominating the vulgar are already "of us", although they don't know it. Ripe for conversion, such people may easily be brought to fight in the ranks of the Thelemites.

THE GODS OF THE EARTH WERE HUMAN
They [the Plejaren ] came, [in 1974] in an act of love, to show us that our world is gripped by spirit-enslaving, evolution-robbing, false religious teachings, which had been set in train on Earth millennia ago by some of their own distant ancestors, who were intent on subjugating the primitive people by misrepresenting themselves as creator gods. The resulting madness and delusion has brought us to the brink of global catastrophe, despite necessarily strident warnings given over the millennia.
