04:02 - Apothecary @Jaeryd, you're referring to LaVeyan Satanism, which is essentially Nietzsche/Ayn Rand type philosophy plus some Crowley - influenced ritual magick. Most theistic Satanists do not consider it as "real" Satanism
03:30 - no one because calling yourself a satanist sounds more kvlt
03:23 - Kuroboshi If you're not into the whole anti-christianity thing, it seems kind of stupid to call it satanism. Why not just say liberal atheism?
03:14 - Jaeryd Most Satanists I know are either moderately liberal or at least libertarian in nature.
02:59 - Jaeryd Some forms of Satanism aren't what I'd call stupid. They're basically just atheism with an added philosophical system that uses the rebellion of Satan as a metaphor.
