British armed forces recognise first ever Satanist

Suppose we'll be seeing this anytime soon?

"A technician in the Royal Navy has become the first serviceman in Britain's armed forces to be officially recognised as a Satanist, the Defence Ministry said today.
Chris Cranmer, 24, has been given the go-ahead by his captain to perform Satanic rituals on board the HMS Cumberland and is reportedly lobbying his employers to register Satanism as an official religion in the armed forces.
'There is a guy who has asked to practice his (Satanic) beliefs on a Royal Navy ship,' a Defence Ministry spokesman told AFP.
'His request was treated sympathetically by the ship's commanding officer.' "
