Confused teenagers who think it's cool? Apparently (according to them), Satan is not evil, he has just been protrayed that way by the good guys.

Wiccan since I was 14ish, my parents aren't exactly pleased as they tried to bring me up to be a good christian and my dad seems to be convinced I'm a satanist. I've tried explaining but he didn't listen :roll: parents!

That was remarkably long for me and the spelling and grammar aren't bad either!

It's creating an image of somthing by comparison.

Helen said satanist are portrayed as evil by the good guys. Becuase the good guy are opposed to satan, and the opposite of good guys are bad guys, therefor satan and his followers are to bad guys.

Thats what my last post in this thread was about.

I'm more of a spiritual Satanist, I don't do ceremonies or anything.

I follow the Laveyan Satanism and also the 11 rules of the earth:
# Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
# Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
# When in anotherís lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
# If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
# Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
# Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
# Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
# Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
# Do not harm little children.
# Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
# When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him

Annoy you in what way? - lets say you don't like my sense of humour, my laugh, my opinions - which one of those would be considered 'annoying'? - some of those I can do something about, others not so much (it may be hard for me to not laugh if someone says something funny while I remain in ear shot of you)

Destroy in what way? - Emotionally? - mentally? physically? (cripple him for example)

1. you see that these rules have a wide range of interpretation so it can be you laugh for one person but your smell for another one. Doesn't really matter, if it annoys you enough you will talk about it and if he can't help it, you won't want him to come back into your house.

2. Destroy him in any you want

What do you believe about Satan, as in his nature, place in the universe, attitude to gays etc? What does he do and what does he expect of his worshippers?

I wrote this on another forum when someone asked me about god:

As a Satanist ppl don't think that I believe in god but that's wrong. We do believe in him but not as the creator of all living things, he/it is just the balance with the dark force of nature (what we understand as Satan). He/it doesn't really exist, he/it just IS. An entity we can't begin to describe just like the force of nature. Some call him love, some call him something else. But what he really is, is the relation between every living thing, just like Satan is too. If any of the two would be missing, there would be no relationships of any kind because every relation is based on feelings, thoughts, etc. from one to the other. And without them there would be no balance between those causing the relation to break down.
We can actually call god whatever we want and create this whole illusion around him but we can't change what he/it is exactly nor can our minds comprehend it, we always try to explain but we can't so we give a certain image (the illusion) to him in hopes that it will be generally excepted.
So I hope all of you understand that it's not material, it's just an entity that we cannot possibly comprehend, only interpret

Methinks BC just pwnt all anti-Satanists here. Other than mild childishness in those 11 rules they could be the best rules of life I've ever heard of. But I'm not going to turn into a Satanist, too many twits with their heads up their asses which would automatically class me as an uneducated fool craving attention.

BC can you put it in a nutshell, as I see it Satanism is just the appreciation of the balance between good and evil. You don't actually worship the evil, you just appreciate it's presence alongside the good spirit. Am I right or have I completely not understood, in which case I blame you being Belgian and not typing English! :P
