I find him more interesting than I do the modern day Anti-Christian celebrities like Marilyn Manson. For someone born in his time, I think he was very intelligent and has inspired many other people on their religious and spiritual path. What say you and while i’m at it, what would you consider him religiously? I personally always viewed him as Hedonist/Satanist and somehow part Pagan though the Pagan assembly refuses to admit it.
He started torturing and killing animals at the age of twelve. He was considered the most wicked man in Europe. Various women he was with through the years ended up in insane asylums. His dream and goal was to be inhabited by demons. When he was a child his own mother said he was the beast of Satan and he enjoyed the title. yeah, my hero.
Oh, and reportedly, his last words were “I am perplexed”. Maybe he didn’t get what he was expecting.
