Am i right in thinking that their is a required age to become a member of the Church of Satan.This for me is rather stupid and contradictory to what satanism stands for.I am only 14 and i understand that this is not a conventional religoun but why the age restriction?

Why the age restriction? Legalities.

You must be of legal age in your country to become a COS member.

Being of legal age as in considered legally an adult, to make your own decissions and be responsible before the law for them.

You answered your own question, by the way, by admitting that you are naive about legalities.

And you do know that to post here you must be 18, right?

We have an age restriction because the last damn thing we need is angry parents suing us.

Also, you must be 18 to use this site, for the same reasons. See you in four years.

Note that this doesn't mean you can't be or aren't a Satanist. It just means that, in true Satanic fashion, we look after our own asses.
