The Gentleman Downstairs and Other Satanic Parables and Fables

Sheep’s Clothing

A wolf disguised himself as a sheep and infiltrated a herd. Each night, the wolf ate a sheep, frightening the remaining animals. The panicked creatures bleated for the shepherd to come to their aid.

After three nights of slaughter, one of the sheep followed the wolf. Before the wolf could strike, the sheep reared up and butted the wolf with his horns. In the moonlight, the wolf saw that he was no sheep. He was a goat.

The wolf howled in pain and limped off, mortally wounded.

The sheep were surprised by the goat’s fury and violence. They were aghast that the horned beast had been living with them all along in disguise.

“We should have waited for the shepherd,” bleated one of the sheep.

“There is no shepherd,” replied the goat.



“Satanism advocates personal justice, personally administered.”
