A bit of bad publicity for Aleister Crowley

Over at Right Where You Are Sitting now, site honcho Ken Eakins admits that Crowley courted controversy within his lifetime, but says that Crowley made important contributions to occultism.

"What I can’t live with are abusive tracky-bottom-wearing oddballs who do abhorrent acts in his name, muddying his already delicate reputation, and making it more stigmatising for us poor wand-wavers," Eakins says, pointing to news coverage of the leader of a Satanic sex cult, found guilty of rape and child abuse.
