Ignorance maintains the status quo

STAR BUSTAMORE. About 15 years or so ago, I was working in a metaphysical store in Nashville, TN. I was buyer for several depts in the store, and was also part of a circle that was loosely connected to the store. We occasionally got a stray Satanist coming into the store to either buy supplies or order books, but the store’s owner was from a Christian background and refused to carry any of Lavey’s or anything even remotely connected to Satanism. I fought regularly with her over some of the witchy books I thought we should carry. After all, we were a business, not a church, and businesses are about making money not so much making moral judgments. But she did not even want Satanists gracing her store. I, on the other hand, will talk to anyone and if they need help, I will help them if their request is within reason.
