specifically judaism, christianity, and islam. The story of Satan as the Adversary involves rebellion against a tyrannical, controlling, violent,
vicious, uncaring god who demands obedience and servitude and fear. Since the bible was designed specifically to keep slaves, servants, the mentally
inept, and the working classes in a state of servitude and fear of their masters, of course the figure of Satan would be promoted as evil. Considering
that Satan is the modern evolution of ancient Pagan spirits that embody nature and harmony with it, such as Cernunnos and the like, it becomes obvious
why royalty, rulers, and tyrants have used christianity as a tool to control their subjects and servants, and sought very early on to demonize the
ancient deities and spirits that represented a free and unconstrained humanity, in harmony with the natural world.
If you think these "musicians" are sitting around in dark rooms chanting, sacrificing small children and animals for satan, or selling themselves to
the devil, you really need to extract yourself from the religious fantasy world you've created for yourself, or have allowed your masters to create

Cute. Do people make these sorts of statements out of genuine ignorance or do they have an agenda to push? I'm guessing the latter.
I find it interesting how everyone is always so quick to bring up the philosophies of the church of satan (or Anton Lavey if you will) in threads like
these while completely overlooking the very real fact that there are other forms of Satanism. Are we to believe that Christians are comprised solely
of southern baptists while we are at it?
A little research would go a long way towards helping you seem as wise as you think you are.
Now for those of you who think this is all just a marketing gimmick: Why? We know sex drugs and rock' n roll sells. It has for decades. Why bother
pushing satanic imagery on pre-teens if it's all just to sell records? Seems to me there have been many, MANY crappy pop groups out there that have
done just fine force feeding their terrible brand of music to the mindless masses while making loads of money doing it. You don't exactly need satanic
imagery to turn a buck with pop music. In fact, it's much more common today than it ever has been previously. It used to be relegated to the realm of
heavy metal bands or under ground acts. Now it is mainstream.
If you are content to brush it all off when the answer is staring you right in the face, be my guest. Ignorance truly is bliss, sometimes. At least
until the damage is done.
