awoke me from walking sleep four years ago. I was always aware of his
existence through my then belief in Christianity, but oddly, I was
never of the belief that he was evil. To be honest, I never even gave
him much thought at all until I was a teenager. I then became
obsessed with Anton LaVey, although I never read any of his books
until much later. While Anton LaVey’s Satanism is not what I
believe in, he was an important part of my beginning to understand
Satan as a God and as a Deity who is more important to the world than
most people would like to admit.
now fast forward a few years to where Satan has been (and still is),
an integral part of my life. I can’t ever imagine being without
him. He has made me stronger, he has been with me through
debilitating illness, he has shown me that who I am is important to
him and he loves me for the fact that I am me. There are not many
Traditional Satanists in the world because Satan does not just want
any person following him; he picks whom he wants. We are the chosen
few and that makes me smile every time. When I am having a bad day,
then I just think of Satan’s love for me and everything else just
melts away. I was ordained into ‘The Universal Life Church’ last
year so that I can, in my own small way, help other Satanists with
their walk down this (sometimes) lonely path.
presence on the internet is growing daily, and sites like Marie's
have played a huge part in people's religious understanding. Let's
hope that continues.
