LaVey

LaVey segment

"...The best known promotor for Satanism is Anton LaVey, who founded the first Church of Satan in San Francisco, and rose to fame as the author of The Satanic Bible. For LaVey and his followers, Satan symbolizes a force which can be tapped to achieve power and success. Sexual indulgence and hedonism play a central role in LaVey's Satanic rituals."

- p. 143, chapter 17 "Satanism & Witchcraft"; Cults, World Religions, and The Occult by Kenneth Boa. Victor Books.


In point of fact, We Satanists are epicurian rather than hedonistic. Selective in our indulgence rather than indiscriminate.
