I was reading it with some lads i know, it doesnt at all seem the way people portray it to be. Doesnt seem evil all that evil. Just over indulgence maybe? We all are guilty of that, well, at least i am a bit.
I put this here because it doesnt seem in the realm of paganism, but, i have a feeling in your search through paganism this must have come up for you.

I don't think that Satanisim is evil.  I think it's stupid.

Think about it.  If a million Satanists marched on Washington D. C. tomorow over some kind of "civil rights" issue, all the churches in the U.S and U.K. next sunday would be over filling to the brim.

Satanisim is a religion that literally supports another religion that it despises.  How damn dumb is that . . .

I don't really think that calling another religion stupid looks very intelligent.

The common view of Satanism is pretty much what everyone else has said already. A lot of people, (especially in Western societies) think Satan=EBIIIL!!!

I know where I live, we have quite a bit of a large Christian population, some Jews, and some pagans, new agey, or spiritual non-religious type of people. It's pretty funny when I see these Christian parents all loving Jesus and such and then while they aren't looking, their kids are off looking into other religions, INCLUDING Satanism. Tongue

But some of these kids might not even have the slightest idea what Satanism really is, they just know that it's very taboo and will start putting Satanic wall papers on their desktops, buy some things that to them seem, "Satan-like" to set everyone else all hay wire on them and run scared that their kid is into that "blasphemous" stuff. It's only until the kid is out of that rebellious stage that they can be serious and consider if they want that religion as a part of their life or not.

I remember researching it a bit myself about Satanism and I saw basically what others here are talking about, LaVey, theistic, Temple of Set, etc. But that was awhile ago. Personally, I don't really believe I have a "set in stone" view on Satanism since to be honest, I kind of stay away from it nowadays. I don't hate anyone that practices it, heck if they want to, they should, they shouldn't let other people tell them otherwise. Personally for me though...it gives me the heebie jeebies...no offense to anyone here. It's just not my thing atm.
