Member of the Satanic Temple, but atheist. I was raised "christian" but it wasn't a big deal.
Arent all "real" satanist atheist?
While it's true that the most popular flavours of modern-day Satanism just think of Satan metaphorically, there are a lot of very real, non-atheistic, Satan-worshipping religions, like The Order of the Nine Angels.
O9A is a nazi group like Joy of Satan. Even the actual devil worshipers think they're jokes.
Yes, that's why they're so fresh in my mind (Nazis being in the news these days; Satanists, not so much). But they do believe in a literal Satan, and venerate him.
I know there are other groups that literally worship Satan, but my knowledge is mostly just about Canada and the UK, so I can't think of any more off the top of my head.
99% I'd say, but I've met some theistic satanists. I'd prefer they call themselves Luciferians but they seem like decent folk. Quite a few in the Satanism room on Matrix.
Big ups to my man Lucien Greaves. I really hope y'all's 12' tall Baphomet statue finds a home soon, so I can visit it.
It's in the HQ in Salem :-)
Salem, Mass.? Fuck yeah! My partner and I are going there this summer!
