We think this call may be from "jenny" rather than "nicholas" as the number the caller gave is a well-known number for someone named "jenny". The caller, however, neglected to hide his caller-id, which differs from the one left in the message. Instead of calling back, we'll post our suggestions here in the hopes they may be helpful to others with similar questions.
We're not aware of any Satanic groups that practice animal sacrifices. The Satanic Missionary Society certainly does not promote sacrifices of any kind as we tend to be against martyrdom and sacrifice in general and do not see these ideas as consistent with a philosophy of living selfishly. We also tend to embrace life and its many lustful pleasures rather than glorifying death as most other religions do.
But if you are interested in performing sacrifices, there is a major world religion, very well represented in most communities in the United States (and most other countries) that performs human sacrifice rituals quite regularly. Some sects of this religion perform this ritual weekly (usually on Sundays), and some even promote performing it daily. Of course they do tend to keep sacrificing the same particular human over and over again (claiming he has divine properties), so it may not be exactly what you're after. It's not the kind of thing we're into as Satanists, but some people like it.
Another good resource on sacrifice is the sacred scriptures of the above mentioned religion, widely available in various English translations. We'd suggest starting at the beginning. This book comes to us from a variety of sources, but it seems to be intended as a manual of devotion to a nomadic tribe's local storm-god, who is prone to violent mood-swings. This collection of scriptures ends with some very disturbing and sadistic predictions about the end of the world and the fate of outsiders. Once again, not really the best guide to life and rituals for a Satanist, but perhaps a good resource for someone else with a taste for cruelty.
If you are interested in practicing real rather than symbolic human sacrifices (we certainly DO NOT recommend this option, but it's your life), there are a few organizations that are dedicated to this, very well represented in every community on earth, and their members tend to be very highly respected. Here are some links to them for people in the United States:
If you just want to stick with animal sacrifices, here are a few links that sound like a good place to start:
We hope you find this helpful. Thanks for the call.

A note to others that want to leave hateful messages for us: Caller ID exists. Calling a minority religious organization and leaving a message like this is a hate crime.

Try, try Satan.
Update: Cafepress.com just emailed us and reinstated the image. At least they responded. So you can buy this t-shirt again if you want it. It's only $11.99 + shipping. And it's available in your favorite color, as long as it's white.
The poem appears on page 223.

We certainly hope so.
When will the postal service issue Satanic postage stamps? Until they do, it's up to us to keep defiling the Christmas stamps they do issue. Merry Antichristmas!
Thanks to the person who sent us this. Your membership cards are on the way!

Don't worry, more are on the way. Why are these so much more popular than the membership cards? It seems that given a choice between sharing Satan with up to three friends or cursing up to three enemies, most people choose the latter.
Please call us and tell us how you've used the enemy-cursing kit. We'll be happy to post your testimonials here.
Once again, the number is 512-33-SATAN. You can call or text to it, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's the TV news segment that ran on KOMO TV in Seattle the same evening:
Why are we doing this? Someone needs to. The reader and viewer comments in the above links show just how desperately our society needs the seductive and liberating message of Satan.

Please join us in praying to Satan for the Westboro Baptist Church and cursing them on their upcoming visit to Seattle and Olympia.
Protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church will be in Washington State at the following times and locations:
State Capitol Building in Olympia, WA June 6, 2012 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM (We'll be at this one)
Olympia High School in Olympia, WA June 7, 2012 7:15 AM - 7:45 AM
Thurston County Auditors Office in Olympia, WA June 7, 2012 7:55 AM - 9:00 AM
King County Administration Building in Seattle, WA June 7, 2012 10:15 AM - 11:00 AM
We will be at the State Capitol to meet them, and possibly one of the other locations and times (we have to choose only one due to transportation issues). While the hateful Westboro church has no problem harassing high-school students, we think that showing up at a high school with our own religious message is going too far. But we certainly encourage Satanic high-school students to pray to Satan for these people on their own in a visible way.
For background, the Westboro Baptist Church is the group that has disrupted military funerals, claiming that the deaths are god's punishment for our tolerance of decadence and homosexuality. Since everyone else has been praying to their gods for these hateful people to change their ways with no results, maybe a few Satanic curses will help to set at least a few of them on a different path.
