I want to comment on your post, PaulDuet.
You may or may not get flack for saying that you made changes after The Satanic Bible...but not from me.
I was told, by my wife, that I also underwent changes after reading it. I did not realize it, but stepping back, she was right. As she put it, I became more engaged in life.
It goes without saying that Satanists are born, not made...but there is a lot to be said for being given the tools to put your thoughts in order. It is like having this feeling you do not belong to your parents, and you find out you were adopted, meet your birth parents, and everything seems to click in your head.
I also appreciate the fact that you admitted to your fault, and that you chose to do something about it. Very Satanic. I wish I could say I have done the same...but it turns out I am perfect.
