Before I decided to report about this wide spread “religion,” I underwent extensive research and with this research I was able to gather what I found to be the meaning of Satanism. Also in my research I discovered that Atheism and Satanism are two very different religions and though many people might consider an Atheist as a Satanist, their beliefs greatly differ from one another.
When you ask someone what do they think Satanism is, their response is most likely “it’s when someone worships the devil.” Well I wanted to know more about this wide spread epidemic, so I research a lot on this belief and I even visited a few satanist sites (to get a better understanding). What I basically found out is that there are basically 3 types of satanist; I classify them as Sat 1, Sat 2, & Sat 3.
From the research that I have done I discovered that Sat 1, is when someone is already in an “accepted” religion( Catholic, Christian, Hindu, etc..) and decides to wonder off and get a taste of Satan by reading the Satanic Bible and even joining a few satanic groups, but do not really consider themselves as satanist.
Sat 2, is when someone believes that Satan is the almighty and higher being. People that are considered Sat 2, reads the Satanic Bible, and will sometimes openly express their beliefs to others when asked their religion. These people are most likely, but not always members of the Church of Satan, founded by Satanist, Anton LaVey. People that are Sat 2, does not partake in the stereotyped Satanism, such as sacrifices, sexual abuse, etc..
The final type of Satanist are what I call, Sat 3. People that are considered Sat 3, believes that the devil is the Creator of all things and should be worshipped. These are the people that fit the Stereotyped satanist, because they do believe in “the sacrifice of people, to have power in hell,” these are the satanist that are depict in movies such as bless the child. The most famous case of a Sat 3 is, the sacrifice-murder committed by satanist, Charles Cervais. Cervais was interviewed by Geraldo Rivera and when Rivera asked why he committed the murder his excuse was “to get the power of 10,000 souls in hell.”
