What are some things you think you know about Satanism?

So, there were a bunch of people labeling Satanism "evil" and stuff like that. What do you think Satanism is? What do you think we do as Satanists?

I'll let you know if you're right :)

  • Ahhh - I get it - they take ALL of the whacked out, messed up in the head, screwy mysterious deaths - and attribute them to satanistic cults since they can't figure out what WHACKjob would do it otherwise - How about the Christian man who beheaded his 5 year old son so that he could "be with Jesus"? Mental Illness and the desire to cut out someone's tongue for some screwed up fetish does NOT signify or exemplify Satanism.

  • I know that it has nothing to do with Satan.... in fact, Satanists don't even really believe in the concept of Satan.

  • Satanists do NOT see themselves as "worshiping evil." Rather, most Satanists associate Satan with such values as pride, independence, individuality, knowledge, achievement, thinking for oneself, and exploring unknown and forbidden realms.

  • I don't really follow LaVey, as I don't agree with absolutely everything he says, but yes, I am the same type of Satanist in that I don't actually believe in Satan.
