Here's the info on Rex Church, now Magister in the CoS. At the time I interviewed him, back in 1993, he was a Priest. I worked at the radio station KVAN in Vancouver, Washington. I don't remember the exact date of the interview, but I do recall that it was in 1993.
The purpose of the interview was to discuss the CoS and its presence here in Portland, Oregon. Billy Graham had been here recently, and I thought I'd give the "devil his due" with the opposing side. Since I was an acquaintence of Blanche's through an ex-finacee, Rex decided that he'd grant an interview.
During the interview, we discussed Satanism as being an elitist religion and the history of the CoS. While he was late, I did interview him for about an hour and took calls from the audience. Rex did not liken the CoS to a Fascist organization on the air, but he made reference to it off air. Several of the people there were rather taken aback (like myself with a Jewish background). So, I don't have it on tape but several of my co-workers were a bit shocked. He backpeddled a bit saying that the whole Fascism thing was part of the "Satanic Aesthetic," and not necessarily Anti-Semitic or racist (because Anton was Jewish).
But again, this is what the CoS spokesmen do when someone confronts them. Hey, it's a free country, when someone asks me about my politics I'm upfront about my leftist stance. Just like Boyd Rice and Michael Monihan, Rex will say he's a fan of Fascism in private, but backpeddles on the stance in public.
