Satanism



I am hoping I can somehow make this seem
like a psychological report without making it lose any of it's
important details. My goal in writing this paper is to
hopefully make people understand and agree that Satanism
is not a "Devil Worshipping," animal mutilating, child
scarifying cult organization. The psychological thing comes
in when people say Satanism is wrong or evil, they hear the
word Satan and automatically assume that it must be bad.
They make these assumptions without even taking the time
to find the facts and understand them. I'll start off by saying
that Satanists do not worship the devil! A Satanist believe
that he or she as an individual rule their own destiny and are
the god of their own lives. Satanism is a religion based on
the reality that man is an animal, like all others. They
choose to separate themselves from a society where natural
behavior is suppressed and the strong support the weak.
The average Satanist disagrees with much of Christianity. In
many ways Christians are considered the enimies.
Christians say Satan is a fallen angel, not a God. All
religions have gods and demons, some of which are
forbidden by a typical society. Satan is one among these,
originally conceived by the Hebrews, long before the birth
of Jesus. Most Satanists are familiar with the teachings of
Christianity, and have read the Bible or part of it. They
simply consider the Bible to be false and disregard it much
like Christians would disregard books which represent the
foundation of another religion. Satanism is not considered a
religion for the white race and should not be confused with
or grouped together with skinheads, The KKK, Nazi's,
Neo-Nazi's, or people who support white power. Satanists
are not teenage vandals, not gang murderers, not
psychopathic murders, not child molesters or vicious
rapists. Satanists do not sacrifice young children or animals.
The ninth and tenth of the Eleven Satanic Rules of The
Earth forbid this, in fact, animal sacrifices are primarily used
in the Afro-Caribbean syncretistic religions such as
Voodoun, Candomble', and Santeria. Child Sacrifices are
used in Television and by journalists to improve ratings. A
Satanist does not practice baby breeding or child
molestation. Evidence does not support what is said to
occur. If the number of murders said to be committed by

  • Salem Witch Trials
    Salem Witch Trials Many of the American colonists brought with them from Europe a belief in witches and the devil. During the seventeenth century, people were executed for being witches and follower of Satan. Most of these executions were performed in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Mostly all of the accused were women, which makes some modern historians believe that the charges of witchcraft were a way of controlling the women who threatened the power of the men. During the witchcraft trials, hun
