My father was most probably a de facto Satanist, but he was too old and square to ever think of himself as anything but a traditional Catholic and "American".
My mother was born in Honduras and was raised heavily Catholic, but even she has learned to accept my beliefs for what they are, most probably because I don't flaunt them externally.
On the surface it appears that I am not much like my parents, but this is not really accurate. I like to think that I have evolved from them into someone more elite.
"The difference between the man or woman who's a practicing Satanist, from an identity Satanist is that the practicing Satanist looks at the picture, while the identity Satanist studies the frame."
