If you do not follow the rules, you are not a Satanist.

The rules do not tell you what you should and shouldn't do, they tell you what a Satanist does and doesn't do.

A Satanist will follow the rules because these are the basic principles of being a Satanist, they will not restrict them. The rules define who is or isn't a Satanist.

Much like the rule for being a Vertebrate is that you must have a backbone.

I haven't read all the replies, but If you read things closely you'll see the word Nature. As others have stated up to where I've read, they are Rules of the Earth, which can also be viewed as, Natural Laws.

Satanism has never been an "anything goes" religion, and each Satanist makes his own judgments to suit the situation at hand.

"To each, his own" can be a fine motto under some circumstances.
But how will you react when someone else's way of life requires them to piss on your's?

To be truly non-judgmental would demand fostering a fake and boring doctrine of blind egalitarianism. Discrimination simply means the ability to tell two different things apart. I'd like to think I have discriminating tastes and judge the things I like and do not like accordingly.

I prefer Ayn Rand's maxim:

"Judge, and prepare to be judged."

Forgive me if I do not get caught up in "what if's".
I have a child, and have grown bored with that.
My post is redundant. Those with more knowledge and authority have already responded.
You can call yourself anything you want. There are groups that welcome your kind of thinking.
The CoS has standards. It is like New York...if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.
You can call yourself a Satanist and have no rules.
You cannot be a member of the CoS and follow no rules.

I do not give handouts like you describe. I am not that altruistic.

Did he actually think he would suddenly have a point if he made a new thread of the same topic?

Consider an example using the Fourth Rule of the Earth:

For instance, if it is late at night, and a person is unknowingly overstaying his/her welcome at your house, you would not be treating him/her "cruelly" by saying "listen, I think you should be going, it's getting late".

If, however, you have a person over your house who's causing trouble, making a mess, being loud and obnoxious with no consideration, then it would only be wise to say something on the order of "you're in trouble if you don't get out right now."

(The very best thing to do is to not invite people like this in the first place.)

The Rules of the Earth all boil down to using good judgment, and knowing who you're dealing with. And, like previously stated, there are shades of grey in each different situation one may find him/herself in.
