Speaking of the church of satan....

Here are some quotable quotes for Christians to ponder, from mainly Anton LaVey it's founder.
Makes very interesting reading.
  1. “That’s why the present ‘religious war’ isn’t between any forces of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil.’ It is being waged between Media (the State) vs. Churches (Catholic and otherwise) who are tying up millions of dollars of valuable property and assets. As Satanists, we have the advantage of realizing this early in the game. It has never been enough for us to be atheistic—we have learned how to smash religious ignorance by beating them at their own game, using the Christian’s own manufactured fears to destroy them.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 85

  2. “We can use TV as a potent propaganda machine. The stage is set for the infusion of true Satanic philosophy and potent (emotionally inspiring) music to accompany the inverted crosses and pentagrams. Instead of holding our rituals in chambers designed for a few dozen people, we are moving into auditoriums crowded with ecstatic Satanists thrusting their fists forward in the sign of the horns.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 85

Then we have, wait a minute, that's the Texas Longhorn sign he is doing, right!!

But, then again, what has Clinton got to do with Texas, or any of these people!

Er, moving along,

Go away!!
  1. “As much “bad press” as the Church of Satan has received from the media over the past few years—Satanic child abuse, sacrifices, etc.—mention of The Satanic Bible only points people in our direction. Perhaps that’s the plan, after all.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 85


    “4. Are we not all predatory animals by instinct? If humans ceased wholly from preying upon each other, could they continue to exist?”

    “7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”, p. 25, 33

  3. “If many religions are denying their own scriptures because they are out of date, and are preaching the philosophies of Satanism, why not call it by its rightful name—Satanism? Certainly it would be far less hypocritical.” pp. 47, 48

    “Many churches with some of the largest congregations have the most hand-clapping, sensual music-also Satanically inspired. After all, the Devil has always had the best tunes.” p. 49

    “Satanism represents a form of controlled selfishness.” p. 51

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”

  4. “If you do not believe in what your religion teaches, why continue to support a belief which is contradictory with your feelings.” p. 50

    “It has become necessary for a NEW religion, based on man’s natural instincts, to come forth. THEY have named it. It is called Satanism.” p. 48

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”

  5. “Satanism is based on a very sound philosophy” say the emancipated. “But why call it Satanism? Why not call it something like ‘Humanism’ or a name that would have the connotation of a witchcraft group, something a little more esoteric—something less blatant.” There is more than one reason for this. Humanism is not a religion. It is simply a way of life with no ceremony or dogma. Satanism has both ceremony and dogma.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”, p. 50

  6. “LaVey’s spreading out from organized church activities to writing books for worldwide distribution has, of course, greatly expanded Church of Satan membership. Satanism’s growing popularity has naturally been accompanied by scare stories from religious groups complaining that The Satanic Bible now outsells the Christian Bible on college campuses and is a leading causative factor in youngsters’ turning away from God.”

    Burton H. Wolfe, Author and priest in the Church of Satan. Introduction of “The Satanic Bible”, San Francisco, December 25, 1976

  7. “Satanism is a blatantly selfish, brutal philosophy. It is based on the belief that human beings are inherently selfish, violent creatures, that life is a Darwinian struggle for survival of the fittest, that only the strong survive and the earth will be ruled by those who fight to win the ceaseless competition that exists in all jungles—including those of urbanized society.”

    Burton H. Wolfe, Author and priest in the Church of Satan. Introduction of “The Satanic Bible”, San Francisco, December 25, 1976

  8. “There is a ceaseless universal quest for entertainment, gourmet foods and wines, adventure, enjoyment of the here and now. Humanity is no longer willing to wait for any afterlife that promises to reward the clean, pure—translate: ascetic, drab—spirit. There is a mood of neopaganism and hedonism, and from it there have emerged a wide variety of brilliant individuals—doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, writers, stockbrokers, real estate developers, actors and actresses, mass communications media people (to cite a few categories of Satanists)—who are interested in formalizing and perpetuating this all-pervading religion and way of life.”

    Burton H. Wolfe, Author and priest in the Church of Satan. Introduction of “The Satanic Bible”, San Francisco, December 25, 1976

  9. “With all of the contradictions in the Christian scriptures, many people currently cannot rationally accept Christianity the way it has been practiced in the past. Great numbers of people are beginning to doubt the existence of God, in the established Christian sense of the word. So, they have taken to calling themselves ‘Christian Atheist’?

    If prominent leaders of the Christian faith are rejecting the past interpretation of God, how then can their followers be expected to adhere to previous religious tradition?”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”, p. 43

  10. “In previous centuries, the Church was the great controller, dictating morality, stifling free expression and posing as conservator of all great art and music. Today we have television dictating fashions, thoughts, attitudes, objectives as once did the Church, using many of the same techniques but doing it so palatably that no one notices. Instead of ‘sins’ to keep people in line, we have fear of being judged unacceptable by our peers (by not wearing the right running shoes, not drinking the right kind of beer or wearing the wrong kind of deodorant), and fear of imposed insecurity concerning our own identities. Borrowing the Christian sole salvation concept, television tells people that only through exposure to TV can the sins of alienation and ostracism be absolved.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”, p. 84

  11. “There are television sets in every home, every restaurant, every hotel room, every shopping mall—now they’re even small enough to carry in your pocket like electronic rosaries. It is an unquestioned part of everyday life. Kneeling before the cathode ray God, with our TV Guide concordance in hand, we maintain the illusion of choice by flipping channels (chapters and verses). It doesn’t matter what is flashing on the screen—all that’s important is that the TV stays on.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Satanic Bible”, p. 84

  12. “Many of you have already read my writings identifying TV as the new God. There is a little thing I neglected to mention up until now—television is the major mainstream infiltration of the New Satanic religion.”

    “The TV set, or Satanic family altar, has grown more elaborate since the early 50s, from the tiny, fuzzy screen to huge ‘entertainment centers’ covering entire walls with several TV monitors. What started as an innocent respite from everyday life has become in itself a replacement for real life for millions, a major religion of the masses.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 86

  13. “Instead of obeying the holy bible, right or wrong, TV advertising now instructs what to buy and what not to buy. Atheism wasn’t tolerated when scriptural dictates were in fashion and accepted as the Word. Now, thanks to Satanic infiltration, it’s safe to say, ‘I don’t believe in God.’ But modern heresy—not conforming to a television lifestyle, not accepting television truths—is liable to be punished with as much righteous enthusiasm as ever.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 86

  14. “As the Satanic stratification increases (aided by the diabolical machine). one of our tasks is to develop a graduated system to type people according to their TV lifestyle. Various levels, from spectators to stimulators, can be identified by the level of TV saturation and influence. At the bottom is the Compleat Spectator—the vegetable—the ultimate provider of stimulation. Contrary to prevailing Christian values, a person who does something to hone and perfect a skill should be regarded as the most highly evolved.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 87

  15. “Vandals, those who DESTROY AND DEFACE OBJECTS AND PROPERTY OTHER than their own, should, when apprehended, be destroyed, or at least punished in a fitting manner. If a painting hanging in a museum is slashed, the perpetrator of that act should be eviscerated. If paint is used to deface, the defacer’s countenance should be permanently dyed in an irregular and repellent manner. If a carefully tended shrub or plant is wantonly ripped up by the roots, the culprit’s arm should be ripped out of its socket.”

    Anton Szandor LaVey, “The Devil’s Notebook”, p. 97

Oh yeah, just one more pic
