What Is The Church of Satan? We Find Out with Reverend Raul Antony
And while I see Jesus and Satan as much of a myth as Santa is, I can see the attraction of going to a church that isn't full of fundamentalist nut-bags who believe everyone bar them is going to hell if they don't play along to their tune.
But I'm more in the late Paul Cox camp when it comes to religion to be honest.
I've been to talks about the devil/Satan/Lucifer and while interesting they don't sell me on the idea any more than some bike riding door-knockers would sell me on their view of Jesus.
But hey, whatever floats your boat I guess, as long as you aren't harming other human beings with your beliefs.
But Satanism doesn't appeal to me, especially the stuff Raul is talking about in the 'Truth Be Told' podcast.

I've got religious art all around my house including a statue of Baphomet and pictures of Jesus in my bookcases along with heaps of crosses.

But I don't pray to them or worship them.
My idea of God transcends all religions and is a loving and accepting force that doesn't reject any soul, and that's not to say you won't have karma to work through from your actions on the earthly plane in my book, but I don't believe in an everlasting hell.
Like I said, whatever floats your boat, but the Church of Satan doesn't float mine.
Not that there is anything wrong with a bit of good old Jungian shadow work on yourself from time to time, either.
