Roman catholic, Atheist, Satanist.
#1
Roman catholic, Atheist, Satanist.
I was born in Cumbria, England.
It was there that going to the church on a Sunday was about as normal as the Sunday dinner you had directly after church. It was the thing that connected the whole town of Harrington. Everybody knew everybody because they saw each other every Sunday. It must be obvious that I was raised as a Christian with absolutely 0 % doubt that there was a God and I was going to heaven or hell, Purely because there was no other option. I had brought up with the teachings that god exists as a FACT!
It was then that around my 9th we moved to Denmark where I was in an international school. It was here that I experienced allot of mixed races and especially cultures. It was then that I learned that believing in god wasn't the only choice in life.

After living there for 2 years we moved to Holland. I joined the Zeeland boys choir and after my voice dropped I was a Altar boy. I liked both the choir and the altar boy jobs as they where filled with rituals that i considered fun. It was after stopping this at an age of around 16 that I watched a documentary on the sexual abuses within the Catholic church. It scarred me in my religious beliefs. How could there be a god that let his servants (the pope and Vatican) protect child abusing ****heads. It was then that I renounced my faith as a Christian.

After 2 years of being a militant atheist, Inviting Jehovah in to my house just to take the edge off all of there arguments on the proof of gods existence. It was after about 5 Jehovahs that I realised they were all saying the same stuff to explain there arguments. They didn't have anything to say that came from there own minds. I learned there that they just didn't promote any free thought whatsoever. It was from then that I Considered religion to be nothing but pure brainwashing.

One thing I did miss was the rituals of the Catholic church, not the catholic rituals, but just rituals by themselves. After searching the internet on different religions, just for fun, I found the satanic bible. I read it and felt at home in nearly everything. I've been an extremely happy Satanist since that day.

So
What do ya think Tongue
Cheers,
Decsel

That's a very interesting story. But you did the right thing, not letting some "God" push you around. Big Grin

You know, I liked the Satanic Bible, or at least the first two books. It seemed pretty Blake-meets-Nietzsche to me, but, admittedly, it was the rituals that ended up keeping me from considering myself a full Satanist, primarily because I realized that they didn't work. That and the $200 they ask from prospective members is a lot of money to somebody who makes $80 a week (I work around my college classes, by the way.)

Just to point something out, you do rightly consider religion as pure brainwashing but at the same time say you are a satanist. Satan is a product of religion, so aren't you contradicting yourself there?
Christianity: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree...

It's okay... notice the anagram: Satan is just Santa in disguise. So if you want any presents this year: hush.

Young female virgins are on sale, I imagine. No Satanist ritual would be complete without one to sacrifice. Of course, you could always not sacrifice them, but then I've got not idea what you'd do with them...

actually it says that hes a laveyan satanist which is non theistic. You are your own god and satan is there to represent a persons inner personality and desires.
