It seems I have been somewhat misinformed. Over the years I have spoken to several people who practiced satanism, and was led to believe that LaVeyan satanists worship the devil, and true satanists basically "worship" themselves. From reading some recent posts it appears I was told backwards information. Is that correct? I have also been told (by satanists) that LaVey was actually more of a cult leader. My reading on him corroborates that somewhat, but to be fair I started reading with a bias. I would like some perspective on that, if you aren't too sick of discussing it. I'm not sure where the misinformation came from or why. As I said, it came from people claiming to be satanists, and I thought I was doing the right thing in asking rather than reading something that might be biased.
