o.k. then satanist's, questions..
What do you really mean by "satanists?" This thread is evidence that not only are there different types, most of you cannot comprehend any type
outside what Christianity defined for you already. Each time a fact is presented that intereferes with some fantasy about what 'satanis' is, it is
called something else so that you can all move on to demonize "satanists" whilst never defining who you actually mean. Well, aside from the case
where the link was given and Satan was not involved anywhere.
I will just go ahead and answer for me, myself, and what I know or believe about my religion which happens to be the Satanism founded by Anton Lavey
When do you attend service?
What do you mean by "services?" There are regular celebrations and festivities but to schedule a particular time to stop doing anything else and
worship would be antithetical to Satanism. I know it is hard but you have to take off your Christian glasses in order to see it for what it is.
Do you have a choir?
Do I? There are no churches or grottos in the nearby area. Whether or not any groups that gather to celebrate in union also engage in singing is a bit
of a mystery to me, sorry. There is no Church organized choir.
What happens to us when we die?
Good question. Why would you think that anyone who believes anything would know that answer at all? If they believe in anything, they are alive. If
they are alive, they have no idea what happens when they die. I could ask you but I would want you to prove it. Neither of us would eve win that game.
What happens is a mystery but living is here and now. I should enjoy it while I can since I have no clue what happens at the end.
Who is/was Jesus Christ?
Apparently there are conflicting accounts of a real historical person but the one in the bible seems to be a fictional character used to steal ideas
from other stories only to be ignored by the very people that bear his name (Christiahypocrites.)
Who is/was satan?
The bad guy of that book. You are basically asking 'Who is/was evil guy?' It is a Hebrew name that was given infamy as a proper noun by people that
needed to scare more folks into their churches. It is just a word. Sorry.
What is the number one message given out by the church?
I am not sure anyone here is qualified to answer that. The church has changed some in the last decade but it would have been something similar to not
letting other people pretend to know your message and spread it for you.
Do you have bake sales?
All the time. You addressed Satanists but did not specify if your queries were church specific. I enjoy baking very much but I do not sell pastries to
raise money for church functions.
Do you try to recruit others to the church, to turn them over to satan to be saved?
Is that supposed to be two questions? Why would Satan want to save you? Why would I want to recruit anyone? Anyone that would readily follow me is
hardly worthy of being a member. That is also antithetical to the ideals of the religion.
What does the preacher wear?
There are no Satanic "preachers." There is nothing to preach and anyone needing it shouted at them is unworthy of being preached to. It is a self
perpetuating paradox built in to keep the numbers smaller, not larger.
Is the inverted cross used as the cross is used in Christianity?
The inverted cross is only used for one reason - to upset people like you. Not being a Christian makes it an electric chair, a gallows, a guillotine,
and little else. Since turning it upside down scares Christians that do not bother to read their entire bibles works and is easy, it can be done in
jest. It is not used as it is in Christianity. It has no true purpose in the religion. It is only significant to Christians.
I hope this helps.
