The First Family of Satanism
The film debuted in the presence of President George Herbert Walker Bush at the Religious Broadcasters Convention.
By the time the film was released on video in 1990 the Schrecks had already broken with LaVey and the Church of Satan. Nonetheless, having the ice broken by the Schrecks, the remaining Church of Satan representatives leaped at the opportunity to follow in their footsteps, pitching Larson for revolving guest spots on his radio show. Sadly none managed the Schrecks' decorum and diplomacy.
Disclaimer: Shortly after the taping, the Schrecks renounced the egocentric, social Darwinian LaVeyan party line expressed in The First Family of Satanism. Many uninformed viewers have wrongly assumed that this1989 interview reflects the Schrecks' current philosophy, which it does not.
