Thank you for explaining things here. Unfortunately, you got many things wrong. There are many types of Satanists, not just three.
You are correct about LaVeyanism, but we do not like to be compared to Wiccans. I will agree with the similarities, only they claim to be "good"
people, simply because they use their stuff for "good". It is the same crap. They are just full of themselves and wish for everyone to believe they
There are LaVeyan Satanists, Luciferians, Setians, and the Agnostic Satanists. As for the types, there are Atheistic, Theistic/Monotheistic, and
Pantheistic. There are those who believe the satan to be an actual living creature-person, and those who believe Him to be just an idea.
There are those that go beyond what LaVeyanism teaches, and ignore any given Law or rules. While most forms follow the Left-Hand Path, there are those
who venture further. Those are the Chaos-based paths. While we will not sacrifice, they will. We do not condone drug-use, they don't care. We believe
survival is Law [hence no drug-use, we prefer to remain strong, not make ourselves weak], they don't.
In spite of what the media makes us seem like, we follow Order.
As for your "exusionist satanists" [first time reading that term], Those are just mental people that no Order, Church, or Temple associates with.
There are the ones we all hate, and we refer to them as "Weekend Satanists", and are usually teens trying to be edgy and "cool". Trying to shock
people. We hate them, and they give us all a bad name. We do not desecrate graves, nor kill cats, nor kids, etc.
As for the Spiritual Satanists, I do hope you are not talking about the Josers. Those who follow "Joys of Satan". They are almost no different than
enthusiastic Christians. The only difference is they are all happy about Satan, rather than God. They will happily go around trying to spread the word
of the Dark Lord.
Now, the most important one of all are the Christian Duo-theists. We all have seen a movie that had a cult trying to kill a kid, or one of those
"Haunting" movies where there was a cult summoning demons, etc. In all movies that have "Satanists" in them, they are always the asshole and the
"bad guys". Those who follow the CHRISTIAN "Satan" fully acknowledge that it was God who created the Earth, and believe the Devil is real. They
are Christian in every sense, except they follow the Christian Devil, not Christ.
Those are the ones you see in movies and shows, and those are the main ones that make us all look bad.
