Proposes curses

Aside from regular communal naked gamboling under the full moon, there are few opportunities for Satanists at MIT to express their faith. I propose that Satanists be allowed to carry out a service of cursing of laboratories and facilities. Far from being a prayer of thanksgiving or a petition for guidance, this service would be an explicitly magic and superstitious action.

In a practical vein, in order for a curse to be laid on a lab in the right spirit, it would seem that anyone in the lab holding dissenting views would do well to keep them to himself. Otherwise he might suddenly fall victim to mysterious rashes, warts and itches as a result of pins being stuck into a voodoo doll made in his image.
