LOVE, SEX, FEAR, DEATH: The Process Church of the Final Judgment
Our friends at Feral House and Process Media are co-hosting this event at The Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles:
Was The Process Church truly “one of the most dangerous Satanic cults in America”? Or were they an intensely creative apocalyptic shadow side to the flower-powered ‘60s and New Age ‘70s? Scores of black-cloaked devotees swept the streets of New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, and other cities selling magazines with titles like “Sex”, “Fear”, “Love” and “Death”, and a theology proposing the reconciliation of Christ and Satan through love. Marianne Faithfull, George Clinton and Mick Jagger participated in Process publications and Funkadelic reproduced Process material in two of their albums. The inside story of this controversial group has at last emerged with Feral House’s LOVE, SEX, FEAR, DEATH by Timothy Wyllie and other former members. Feral House and Process Books present a re-creation of an actual Process Church “Sabbath Assembly” ritual. Author Wyllie (Father Micah) will follow to discuss the cult and his time within it in a multimedia presentation.
I’ll be interviewing author Timothy Wyllie on Dangerous Minds when he’s here for this event. (Some of you may recall that I interviewed Timothy once before in 1999 with Genesis P-Orridge as part of my Infinity Factory talk show).
Jodi Wille of Process Media tells me: “We’re touring this event to five more cities in October—NY, SF, Seattle, Portland and Philly, with musicians of note in each city comprising the “Sabbath Assembly” band. Should be fun!”
