Hi,
I'm reading 'The Secret Life of A Satanist' about LaVey. His personal experiences are what he's based the Satanist Religion upon. Because other Satanists have different life experiences can The Church of Satan be truly embraced, with ALL it's tennants, by other Satanists?

'Satanists are born not made,' says it all for Lavey, ain't that the truth!

From some of your other posts you say that you are Wiccan; So how do you know "Satanists are born not made" if you are not one yourself?

I have also noticed you like to ask a lot of open-ended questions, as if you are on some right-hand exploration.

Just an observation.

It's The Church of Satan, not a LaVey personality cult. Instead of putting faith in an external god you are your own god.

For instance I am a writer and a systems developer and I try to get as far as I can in my chosen fields. I see no reason why I should become a tamer of lions or a player of the calliope, fields in which I have very little talent, in order to better embrace The Church of Satan.

Check out the previous post about celebrating the anniversary of the death of Dr. LaVey, most people replied that they would honor him by doing nothing but living life to the fullest, in accordance with what he would have wanted.

I think you mean "tenets", i.e. basic principles and teachings and not tennants. Tenants are people who rent apartments and and tennants is not a word according to my dictionary.

By learning to release your hatred towards those who deserve it, you cleanse yourself of these malignant emotions and need not take your pent-up hatred out on your loved ones.�

Hi,

I have a masters in psychology and always been interested in the human species! I just ask a lot of questions, that's all.

Sorry about the spelling. My fingers sometimes get ahead of me!

You also have a track record here of (in My personal opinion) being mentally unstable, a pushover and a pest.

Have you read "The Satanic Bible" yet? Perhaps you should read that book and form an opinion on the knowledge gained from that activity instead of asking open ended questions in the futile hope of learning what catch phrases will gain you acceptance in the non-existent "Satanic Community".

Guns don't kill people. People kill people. (And monkeys, if they've got a gun). Haha. That was hilarious.

I don't know this, um, guy. My son usually subjects me to every comedian out there. I'll have to show him this! Thanks, verszou! (Pssst! That's one more post for me)

Hail Satan!

Why is there not some kind of easy questionaire involved with joining this message board? I've always gotten the feeling non-Satanists are not exactly welcome, so that would filter some of the knats out of the pool. I'm not telling Magister Ventrue how to run his business, that's just my opinion on how to stop "people who want to talk to Satanists" from getting in here and wasting all of our time with "inquires" regarding Satanism.
