In my opinion there are 2 types of Satanist. The first is a member of the Church of Satan and is generally considered to be Pagan. The second is one that actually worships the Christian deity of Satan. And are generally considered to be Christian because they hold the same beliefs as Christians just in reverse...
This came up on another site though because one of my Satanist friends was refused entry to a Pagan Pride Day Celebration in NYC because he is a Satanist, as in Chruch of Satan. He knows that many of his fellow Satanists tend to reject the title of Pagan, he however imbraces it...
So, in your opinion are Satanists Pagan? And should the be rejected from the PPD Celebrations?

I have to agree with pagan_mama above!!
Why would they not let him participate?? That' nuts!! I mean I have gone to gay pride celebrations when I was in college - and I am not gay. If someone is supportive of your pride celebration aren't they helping your cause?? Seems like the event organizers don't have their priorities straight!! That's just to bad for all!!

Anonymous, a satanist is not the same thing as a Christian Pagan. And why is it not possible to be a Christian pagan?
