    It's not any worse than any other religion.

    Edgy hedonism with some ritualistic bullshit thrown in.

    There are no rituals in satanism.



    It's actually way more sane than most people portray it...

    I've always thought of it as reactionary Christianity. As for what Satanists actually do and believe, it seems to vary wildly and could theoretically exist independent of the arguably Christian label of "Satanism" which seems to serve mostly to add an element of shock and excitement.

    This, along with being a mere label for some. Satanist themed art can be quite ambiguous.

    My father always said not to knock Lucifer because he was "the first revolutionary". I came out just fine.

    This is kind of beautiful though:

    Glory and praise to Thee, Satan, on high,
    Where Thou didst reign, in Hell where Thou dost lie,
    Vanquished, silent, dreaming eternally.
    Grant that my soul some day rest close to Thee
    Under the Tree of Knowledge which shall spread
    Its branches like a Temple overhead.

    Anton LaVey's Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth strike me as not exactly nice, but ethical. I don't consider myself a Satanist but I live by most of them.

    1.Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.

    2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.

    3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.

    4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.

    5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.

    6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.

    7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.

    8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.

    9. Do not harm little children.

    10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.

    11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

    I don't know much about Satanism, but I am a big fan of the Satanist Temple's unsubtle mockery of Christian fundies.
