I went to church in my teens of my own free will. All i learned is that god makes people feel guilty.

Never the less, the urban legend lead somebody to reading up on the Church of Satan. Ditto I'm sure for the old Proctor & Gamble story. Misinformation aside, I think there's something to to be said about that.

That's a good point, one that I didn't think about.

Yep. I doubt anyone has become a Satanist because someone came up to him or her, handed him or her some accurate information and said, “Let me tell you about Satanism”. There is a bit of resourcefulness and curiosity about us.

I don't understand why people get all mad when I, a complete stranger, ring their doorbell at 9:00 AM on a Saturday, and tell them about a religion that says sloth can be a welcomed indulgence and "respect another's lair or don't go there".

But imagine trying to "witness" to the people who couldn't even make it into Jehovah's Witnesses? Boy am I glad we don't work like that.

I always thought it would fun to try it at christmas dressed as jesus collecting presents those without . Just to see how far playing on such guilt for charity could go . I laugh about it every year . One of these years though to many people might just ask one to many times for money, and I just might do it .

I have never been interested in religion. You might say that I am a die hard atheist. It is impossible for me to not see the damage that organised delusion has caused over the years whenever some schmuck is speaking to me about all the good that has been done by this or that cult of religious fucknuts. I was aware of Satanism (meaning the existence of the CoS, the ToS, etc.) since a young age, but dismissed it as an even weirder sort of "rebound" thing that was suitable for drug-fuelled and sensationalism fuelled California hippies only. However, a large part of me is highly theatrical and psychodramatic. I dabbled in ritual magic. This and that. I found my thing in various manifestations of "art"... and it wasn't until I actually bothered to research the issue that I found the CoS to be founded in cynical intelligence rather than in the devotion of "beliefs". So I joined. And that's the story.

My bad. I didn't even look at the dates...
But how come it was on top of the recent topics list when I looked at it? And isn't it still a reasonable question? (Albeit a very predictable and, I can imagine, an endlessly boring one to the forum regulars.)

Did you just put the Church of Satan alongside the Temple of Set? Oh boy.

The ToS doesn't describe itself as "Satanism", they use the term "Setianism", which basically translates to "Pretentious devil worshiping".

You seem to have unusual difficulty grasping the basic functioning of this board overall, from posting a non-question in the Questions Section (which only a tiny fraction of people ever do), to dredging up two year old dead threads (which, again, only a tiny fraction of people ever do), to initiating a new thread on a subject where there is already an incredibly active, current, and robust thread on that very subject (which, yet again, only a tiny fraction of people ever do).

Managing to combine these three different posting errors in so short a time is really a bit strange.

Just an observation. Maybe you are simply new at posting on message boards on the internet? If so, this is understandable.

Perhaps you should sit back and observe how things here work for a while. Simply a friendly suggestion, meant for your benefit, really.

I think you have a point.
