Anyone ever read, THE SATANIC BIBLE? Anton LaVey said….?

“On Saturday night I would see men lusting after halfnaked girls dancing at the carnival, and on Sunday morning when I was playing the organ for tent-show evangelists at the other end of the carnival lot, I would see these same men sitting in the pews with their wives and children, asking God to forgive them and purge them of carnal desires. And the next Saturday night they’d be back at The carnival or some other place of indulgence.
“I knew then that the Christian Church thrives on hypocrisy, and that man’s carnal nature will out!”
From that time early in his life his path was clear. Finally, on the last night of April, 1966 — Walpurgisnacht, the most important festival of the believers in witchcraft — LaVey shaved his head in the tradition of Ancient executioners and announced the formation of The Church Of Satan. He had seen the need for a church that would recapture man’s body and his carnal desires as objects of celebration. “Since worship of fleshly things produces pleasure,” he said, “there would then be a temple of glorious indulgence . . .”
I just wanted to introduce it to those who don’t know about his writings. Not those who understand and respect his logic. The in the closet carnal religious folks–in other wards. There’s an alternative…
YES< I know it's in the FORWORD but you have to understand that this is MORE addressed to the many religious people might be afraid to have that book in their hands. They think it might burn their fingers or catch on fire if they touch it.

  1. Yes, I’ve read it. It’s pretty much all about his life philosophy. Surprise, there’s no secrets about Satan in there! Oh, and lot LaVey’s philosophy I agree with.

  2. Ya but in the Real Bible we know what the end will be for Satan! His days are numbered!! Revelation says it all!

  3. Even if his criticism of religious hypocrites is true, LaVey was still a crackpot. Using the whole ‘satan’ idea, (especially when you don’t even believe in satan.) is just giving the superstitious christians what they want. You justify their superstition by saying ‘I’m a satanist.’
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for pissing them off, but doing it that way and then performing ridiculous ceremonies to an ‘evil god’ that you don’t even believe in is pointless.
    Besides, everyone knows they got their satan idea from vilifying pagan gods.

  4. I identify pretty closely with Satanism, and yes, I’ve read the Satanic Bible, but I found that the second half was extremely hypocritical.
    The books of Satan and Lucifer are awesome.
    Keep in mind that LaVey borrowed pretty heavily from Ayn Rand, though.

  5. I’ve read it. As a Humanist, I believe in enjoying life, but I do not think the “worship of fleshly things” and “glorious indulgence” make the best use of the precious time we have as living beings. I don’t care anything about being a rebel. I just want to live a moral, useful, and fulfilling life by contributing my verse to the powerful play.

  6. I think that’s a majority of the foreward..
    My faorite part in The Infernal Diatribe was,
    “I gaze into the glassy eye of your fearsome Jehovah, I pluck him by the beard, I uplift a broad axe and bring it down upon his worm eaten skull.” or something like that. I don’t feel like grabbing my copy.

  7. Jesus had Judas and the church will always have there’s. Jesus said; By their “fruits” ye shall know them. A good “tree” can not bring forth evil fruit, and an evil tree can not bring forth good fruit.
    Personally, I would say these are only christians by name and not by birth – Spiritual Birth. Just because some professes to be a christian, doesn’t mean they are.
