Satanism

I am hoping I can somehow make this seem like a psychological report
without making it lose any of it\'s important details. My goal in writing this paper is
to hopefully make people understand and agree that Satanism is not a "Devil
Worshipping," animal mutilating, child scarifying cult organization. The
psychological thing comes in when people say Satanism is wrong or evil, they
hear the word Satan and automatically assume that it must be bad. They make
these assumptions without even taking the time to find the facts and understand
them. I\'ll start off by saying that Satanists do not worship the devil! A Satanist
believe that he or she as an individual rule their own destiny and are the god of
their own lives. Satanism is a religion based on the reality that man is an
animal, like all others. They choose to separate themselves from a society
where natural behavior is suppressed and the strong support the weak. The
average Satanist disagrees with much of Christianity. In many ways Christians
are considered the enimies. Christians say Satan is a fallen angel, not a God.
All religions have gods and demons, some of which are forbidden by a typical
society. Satan is one among these, originally conceived by the Hebrews, long
before the birth of Jesus. Most Satanists are familiar with the teachings of
Christianity, and have read the Bible or part of it. They simply consider the
Bible to be false and disregard it much like Christians would disregard books
which represent the foundation of another religion.

Satanism is not considered a religion for the white race and should not be
confused with or grouped together with skinheads, The KKK, Nazi\'s, Neo-Nazi\'s,
or people who support white power. Satanists are not teenage vandals, not
gang murderers, not psychopathic murders, not child molesters or vicious
rapists. Satanists do not sacrifice young children or animals. The ninth and
tenth of the Eleven Satanic Rules of The Earth forbid this, in fact, animal
sacrifices are primarily used in the Afro-Caribbean syncretistic religions such as
Voodoun, Candomble\', and Santeria. Child Sacrifices are used in Television and
by journalists to improve ratings. A Satanist does not practice baby breeding
or child molestation. Evidence does not support what is said to occur. If the
number of murders said to be committed by Satanists\' was accurate some
bodies would have been found by now.

Members of the Church of Satan are involved and advanced exactly as
their own desires, abilities, and accomplishments dictate. There are no set
activities, meetings, or contacts. A new member comes into the organization
ideally with his or her own goals and plans of achieving them. When being
brought to the church of Satan new members are told to not let anyone tell you
what to believe or what to do. Advice or recommendations are one thing; orders
or commands quite another. Remember that you are a free being, not a pawn in
someone\'s power fantasy. They believe the weaker elements of society should
serve the stronger elements of society or perish. Satanists support any means of
returning to the order of Darwin\'s Natural Selection Process, this is inclusive of
elimination of welfare to selective sterilization of those weaker elements. Weak
elements are determined by performance and intelligence, not race or religion.

So where does Satan come into all of this? Satanists believe Satan (and
other gods) is not so much an entity as a force of nature. These gods are not all
concerned with the life of mortals. Satan is a very powerful word that serves as
an isolation between Satanists and society. It is this separation that a true
Satanist appreciates and holds dear. the separation of a society where the
strong and willing work for what they need and want but are forced to support
the weak through welfare and charity. Satanists\' know their opinions may not be
politically correct, but they still obey the laws governing man on this planet and
they expect the same protection under the laws as other minorities, races and
religions.

There are several divisions of the believe systems of various "Satanic"
groups. Satanism has changed so much from it\'s original form. For instance a
group that are sometimes referred to as The Dabblers adopt Satanic beliefs for a
brief period of time, usually for entertainment rather than serious purposes.
Many modern youths fall into this category. A Promethian Gnostic believe
that
