Ever since I became interested in the COS I have had countless numbers of old folk which are local old folk, knocking on the door telling me that going to church would be good for me, they knew that I used to go to church, but now turn against it, I was respected within the community now I am not, I feel that the daggers are always flying at me.

Are you happy with your choice to be a Satanist? If so, then to hell with them. Tell them (unless for some reason you want them on your good side) to piss off and mind their own business. Personally, I would treat them like those annoying little jehovas witnesses that come to my door...

Of course I am happy that I chose to be a Satanist.

I wanted to believe in many things in life but Satanism has changed my views of them completely, for example afterlife, I thought that I would go somewhere special after I died but now I see the afterlife as a load of bull and that life is like a TV, once you turn the power off its goes dark and that’s it.

Satanism has changed my life for the better because I now believe in myself and not a god.

People will always be against what they don't understand. Just know that you are respected in other places. They are the clowns that are lost. If being a satanist is truly what you want, then stick to your guns and the heck with what the community has to say. Be glad that you are part of the elite.

Hail Satan, Hail Me

That didn’t make sense to me.

That alone cannot be a reason enough, for the believe in a god is a thing which improves many. Those who are not as high in thinking if you will, only improve by believing in a god, regardless of its existence. Blind faith spurs anyone to incomprehensible acts, but when one has the ability to think outside (the Satanists for example) of the box, such a believe will limit him or her.

Why do I stress this? Because Satanists aren’t the book readers, they are the book writers. They should have to a certain extent have already learned the “Satanic” way before encountering the Satanic bible (which then “strengthens their resolve”). You should already be thinking outside of the box before turning Satanic, not by turning Satanic.

Anyway, to get back on the subject – As mentioned before, if you are truly at peace with what you are, tell them. If they accept you, fine, if they don’t, fine. If want to retain some “stature”, just go to church for them once. It’s not like you will catch fire if you do.

Conclusion: If you like them enough to care, go to church. If you like your self the way you are more than you like them, tell them to piss off. Simple.

Why is that?

I served on the altar at a local church and was and still am a VERY respected member of the community.

The fact that I am a Satanist has had no negative affect on my reputation. If anything... since my realization, I have had many more successes in life.

So my question is, what is so different that you are now being cast out?

A "No Soliciting" sign has worked wonders for me in keeping them from knocking on my door. I used to get hit up at least once a week until I put one up, haven't been bothered since.

I think the reason for why I am being cast out is because I am an asocial person, I try to avoid contact with people who I am unsure about, whether that is because they wish to ignore me because of the fact that I don’t like to socialise and can get very abusive towards people who do not understand me, or the fact that they wish not to understand me, other than this reason I have no other explanation as to why they would cast me out, other than me being me.

If your not a social person, then why do you care?

Again, why do you care what they think? I am sure with a little bit of effort you find something better to occupy your time with. "Satan represents indulgence, not compulsion." Your behavior sounds very compulsory. "He who angers you, controls you"*

* I wonder how many times I am going to end up quoting that.

Are you actaully telling people you are Satanist? I just live as a Satanist and if anybody ask about what I believe then I let go and say Im a Satanist. But it seems that if you want people off your back then you shouldnt be advertising it. If you do want to show you are a Satanist then fine and tough it out knowing that there are many outstandging individuals such as yourself that are living lives like yours and achieving supreme status above the herd. But how should I know, Im pretty new to Satanism. Is it right to keep your Satanist beliefs quiet?

Yes, a "No solicitators" sign on your door or if you have a window next to your door, say a side window.

I live in a private subdivision, it even has a large street sign at the front of the subdivision that says "No solicitators". Your best bet (esp if that happens often) (and you have that warning sticker in plain and easy to see view somewhere on your property).

Yet even so people of all sorts are spamming my door to sell me on something.

Then you can do what we do here:

1. Ask them to wait at the door, make an polite excuse such as you have something on the stove and need to put it on the back burner. Once you leave, quickly call the police (not 911 / emergency) and give a full description.

Here at my house, usually within 5 minutes (yes, 5 minutes OR less) at least 3 squad cars start cruising our subdivision, and quickly, as if a murderer is loose. It is quite funny to see a group of Mormons surrounded by the police with that street's neighbors all watching as they get arrested for trespassing.

2. Always remind yourself of "The Nine Satanic Statements" and "The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth". They are of course what the Satanic Bible teaches and are great in providing yourself, self control, and patience to be 1 up on them.

3. Now, if you are a "Funny guy" (or quite possibly what most people would refer to as an asshole) or just me (a Trickster - ala "TriKster") (my nick). Have an air horn, the kind you get for parties, they are small, cost almost nothing and are loads of fun to have. I will cover at least 2 of the things these air horns are fun for below. (silly string and authentic looking water gun
pistols are fun also). Plus I am retired, young and usually at
home 90% of the time.

A. Walk outside your door, (never invite any of these people
into your house, not all things appear as they are. You
could be looking at a potential theif or someone with evil
intentions). As they begin to talk use your can of air (ala
the air horn) and with each try they will be unsuccessful
as it is hard to get a word in edge wise when someone is
blowing an air horn at you everytime your lips begin to
move. This also provides a way to alert the nieghbors!

B. The air horn also works great for tele-spammers also.
(See above).

Finally, the reason why I say never invite these people into your house, no matter how nice or no matter what they have to sell, is if you are not prepared to be somehow hurt or ripped off things could go down very fast. Also these "spammers" prey on moving about during the day, to see what houses have people at home. Kind of like profiling and watching a bank prior to a robbery.

Believe it or not as paranoid as it may seem these things do happen. Be prepared to protect yourself once again at all costs.

Do what I do: don't advertise! If people don't know about it, or don't know what they know about it, they can't usually offer unsolicited advice about it. (Though the diehard busybodies will still sometimes try.)

If necessary, feign Christian belief, or at the very least, pretend to be a member of a less controversial faith, like Judaism.

"Trespassers will be prosecuted to the full(est) extent of the law" would be my choice. Same principle, stronger message.

Is there a necessity in feigning faith of any kind?
What? you can't live in England unless you're a regular church-goer?

There are additional solution:

1) Politely refuse their suggestions (could either stop them altogether or in fact lead to even further interest in you)

2) Claim something that is both true but obscuring - say you have reached a certain relationship with the Lord that you have no need to frequent churches in order to maintain regular relations with him. (the response depends on the level of conservatism in the area)

3) Say "yeah whatever", close the door and return to your buisness.

Do they know you are interested in the CoS?

If so, how exactly did they come by this knowledge?
