Satanists: What do you think of this Anton LaVey quote taken straight from the Church of Satan website?

Desiderata Satanicus
My worst enemies are those who presume me to be harmless. They cannot imagine how much I resent and disdain them, or just how great a threat they would face if I could get at them. Everything in their behavior speaks of insult and presumptuousness, and for now it is all I can do to make constructive use of my anger toward them. At this time, I just make a list of them and keep a watch on. Some day, with the help of time, space, and circumstance, I will be able to humiliate them properly – not in a manner they would enjoy, but in a style calculated to make them wish that they had never been born.
Anton Szandor LaVey

Autumn, if you think this is the way a normal person thinks, then you are in a bad way yourself.
This is a person who holds grudges forever and hates human beings in general. He wants to hurt people who don’t see him as a threat. He has a superiority complex. His aim is to hurt and only to hurt. He is dangerous and creepy. Keeping your enemies closer has nothing to do with vindictiveness as a lifestyle and the only thing one lives for. It has to do with watching them, not wanting to get vengeance so much that it is an obsession.
lyn, thank you.

  1. I think that’s extremely creepy. That guy belongs in a mental hospital. That’s a legitimate threat.

  2. As a spiritual satanist i believe in Satan as an actual entity to be precise the sumerian god known as Enki. I am not a fan of levay and the church of satan i see them as nothing more then a dillussional group of atheists. A true satanist would never question the actual existence of our great lord. so this quote by levay means absolutley shite to me. learn the truth about satanism not the laveyan crap

  3. sounds like the 1990’s posterchild for teen angst
    the guy sounds like he’s stuck in the akward stage of puberty where you hate everyone
    btw im not satanists
    have fun getting ur butt pounded by the devil 😀

  4. Sounds an awful lot like ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’ Which a lot of us do.
    You all read way too much into it.
    Actually, now that I read it again, I can imagine this coming straight from the Bible…sounds like something God would say…the last line about sending unbelievers to hell…
    **edit** aw, did I offend a Christian? this IS what your bible says…that you can’t see that is frightening.
    ***EDIT***”This is a person who holds grudges forever and hates human beings in general.”
    your God punishes people for the sins of Adam and Eve.
    ” He wants to hurt people who don’t see him as a threat.”
    Your God smites people who don’t ‘fear him’ (do I need to pull out bible verses?)
    He has a superiority complex.
    your God ‘created humans for the purpose of worshiping him’-enough said.
    His aim is to hurt and only to hurt.
    well, he allows the devil to hurt whomever he wants, just to ‘test their faith’
    He is dangerous and creepy.
    ‘go into the villiages and tear the children limb from limb’ (would you like me to find the verse?)-that sounds dangerous and creepy to me.
    Keeping your enemies closer has nothing to do with vindictiveness as a lifestyle and the only thing one lives for. It has to do with watching them, not wanting to get vengeance so much that it is an obsession.
    God watches us very closely…he even keeps all of your deeds in a ‘book’ that you’ll have to account for at the time of judgement. I’d say that’s a little obsessed: I’m going to give you free will, but watch every little move you make, and make you feel guilty about EVERY pleasure in life.

  5. I’m not a Satanist, and I think LaVey was something of a phony. However, I have a colleague who does identify as a LaVeyan Satanist (rather than a theistic Satanist like Stony McPot) and that quote pretty much sums up the way he does think.

  6. Prometheus:
    “LaVey was a petty plagiarist,”
    You have to give the source of the plagiarism if you are going to make the accusation. Otherwise your “accusation” sounds just as ridiculous as that which you ridicule.
    Autumn: “aw, did I offend a Christian? this IS what your bible says…that you can’t see that is frightening.”
    Same with you. You have to find the quote to look credible, otherwise you look like a hate-bashing ignoramus. Is that what you want?
    frenzy: YOU ARE READING LA VEY RIGHT. He has made himself adequately clear in everything he has ever written. He means every word !

  7. we can’t underestimate the power of this…but we can make our lives Shine brightly…so bright in fact that the brightness outshines! :))
