Please understand that I am not trying to come down hard on you.
In regards to Laveyan
Satanism, to an extent, I get it.If
my memory serves me right, this term was used in both The Church of Satan
and The Secret Life of a Satanist by Magistra Blanche Barton. I could be wrong.
That said, for a person who is entirely new to Satanism, the term could seem accurate especially considering the Laveyan Personality Synthesizer Clock.
However, with a look around these boards and the CoS website, it should become apparent that this term is not accepted or endorsed by the CoS.
My understanding of why this term is not considered useful is because a) It implies that there are other kinds of Satanism. (there are not) and b) it gives the impression that the CoS is an Anton Lavey personality cult (it is not).
This is a topic that has been covered here numerous times. No less, I hope that I have assisted in clearing this up.
