Satanism is NOT a lonely hearts club. It's not an organization for self empowerment. I get that you feel that way after reading the Satanic Bible. The Satanic Bible codifies Satanism. It's a religion of the individual (the self, aka the carnal beast) and so much more. To LIVE like a Satanist makes you a Satanist, NOT joining groups that promote self empowerment, self love types, or organizations promoting political agendas, or for that matter a 301(c) non-profit so-called "church". Satanism doesn't love you for being Gay or for that matter straight. Doesn't care if you love or hate. It represents KINDNESS and respect in some cases, that deserves it and not wasted upon those who do nothing to earn it. THAT'S what this means. I don't get where it's been misconstrued along the way since it was published. ~ Xerxes
