What do you mean by "respect christianity"? Do you mean you respect other people's right to choose to believe in whatever they want? Or do you mean you feel christianity has some good points or what?
I guess both of those. I still find both bibles (christian and Satanic) an intresting piece of reading material.
Sometimes when people who have been raised in christian households realize they are Satanists, they have a difficult time letting go of their past religious traditions and beliefs. This is not a problem if it is not a problem to you. (For example, I still celebrate christmas, but it is a secular christmas celebration).
Aye, my mother is still the head of the group that educates the 12 years olds for their second communion so she's hightly christian but she doesn't talk much about it to me. I guess she accepted that I chose not to be christian when I refused to go to the Christmas mass with the rest of the family.
You might want to take down the cross and destroy it as a symbol of your embracing Satanism. (unless it will cause you a rash of shit with your family) If you are keeping it because someone you love gave it to you, then that is a different matter.
It won't get me into trouble other than maybe with my mom but that's highly unlikely since I don't care what she thinks about it and she knows that.
