Stupidity — The top of the list for Satanic Sins.

The Cardinal Sin of Satanism.

It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told.

The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.


The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

by Anton Szandor LaVey

LaVeyan Satanism is an atheist religion founded in 1966 by American occultist and author Anton LaVey. Scholars of religion have classified it as a new religious movement and a form of Western esotericism.


The concept of Satanism, has been used by artists and entertainers for symbolic expression.

The concept of "Satan"

The word "Satan" was not originally a proper name, but rather an ordinary noun that means "adversary". In this context, it appears at several points in the Old Testament.


"If Satan wasn't around, churches would go out of business."

This is God's world, not Satan's. Christians are the lawful heirs, not non-Christians.

Most satanists aren’t devil worshipers

Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. We do not believe in Satan as a being or person.

They are OK with celebrating Christmas

Why would satanists be OK with celebrating the birth of Jesus? Because, the Christians stole this holiday from the pagans. Santa Claus has come to signify indulgence, and he is a combination of Dionysos and Silenus from Roman and Greek myths.

You won’t find a satanic church in your community

The Church of Satan doesn’t have actual church buildings, because “that would be against our individualist approach to living”. It´s all inside your own head. We don´t need a "business" as Catholics do.

There was a “satanic panic” in the 1980s and ’90s

In the 1980s and 1990s, all over talk shows and news programs linked reports of animal sacrifice and ritualistic killing to satanic worship. Probably didn’t help that at the time, many teens were listening to heavy metal bands that intertwined their rebellious music with satanic imagery and songs about the devil.

Symbolism and art are important

While satanism may eschew holy sites, gods and other tenets that are sacred to most religions, it places a high value on symbolism and art. “Satanists feel that we should proudly admire this most precious human capacity without the need to use mythological figures as distancing intermediaries.”

When you think of Satanism? What comes to your mind?

Maybe images of pierced, black-clad youths gathering at night, listening to hardcore death metal music and sacrificing animals? Nothing could be more far from truth. Think opposite. Welcome to the Satanic Realm of Anton Lavey.
