In the Philippines, Catholicism dominates the entire country and more than 80% of its people. I embraced Satanism in 1990 when I read the Satanic Bible bought from a second-hand bookstore, and to look for people who share my belief is just impossible. So I started my own small group called Legion of the Brotherhood of Satan (LEBROSA). I got a couple of dabblers in my group but didn't last very long because of their strict Catholic family tradition. Many of my friends knows that I'm a Satanist, some thinks I'm crazy, you know. I go out in public wearing an inverted cross necklace (a Pentagram is hard to find in my country), but most of the time had to hide it under my shirt because of the cops and other religious groups I came across on the street. My family knows about it but didn't give a shit. My wife and kid know about it too but trying not to give a shit. I really don't give a shit as long as I believe in what I believe!

Ok. You don't accept the tattoos.

Cool. You don't have to.

Thanks for your advice.

They don't frighten intelligent people... They ought not to. Seeing as "fear is the mindkiller" they would only frighten "unintelligent" or stupid people, ironically the only thing that would frighten intelligent people.

So let us agree to disagree, after all...

If you're reading this, you're probably a Satanist. But do you admit it? Does your family know? How about your friends? Or maybe you're the sort of person who wears a giant pentagram on their shirt for the world to see. You could say I'm in the closet, as nobody knows of my religion. I'm wondering, how do you think people would react if I told them?


I admit that I am a Satanist in certain circumstances. If I become decent friends with someone, and I know they wont judge me for it, I will tell them. I am also an honest person, to an extent, so if someone asks about my beliefs I have the candor to let them know. I tried to let my mother know that I was a Satanist and explain it to her, but she sort of blew me off and told me not to mention it to my dad. She gave me the "I am worried for your soul" speech . I don't bother bringing it up to them anymore. Other than that though I usually keep the title "Satanist" to myself, but I do freely express my philosophy, which occasionally gets some raised eyebrows.
On the other hand though I also have a T-shirt with a giant Baphomet that I wear on occasion, and a baphomet pendant that I wear constantly.
I cannot tell you how people would react if you told them you are a Satanist. It mostly depends on the person you tell, and whether or not they are willing to see you for you, or you for what you believe. If you are unsure of whether or not you should tell someone, try to drop subtle hints. Try putting forth a little of your views, and see how they react. If you get a positive or neutral reaction then it is more than likely safe to tell them.

I am a painter, not a tattoo specialist. I like your tattoos.
I like the imagery. To me, it is a highly personal statement
of who you are. If others do not agree well, they don't have to wear them. Outspoken individuals are often abused. People are always looking at my paintings and saying, "Don't you think it could be more pink?" I would hand them a brush and say, "paint it yourself if you think you can do better. Give me my cheese back and stop suckin up my booze"

Do tell... What tattoos do you wear on your arms that show the world you are Satanist?

Gladly.

It's funny because since I have told people my beliefs and that I am a satanist, people have been avoiding me (like I am going to hurt them). Tennessee is a bible belt state, so you can imagine. My mom decides the other day to come over and bring her pastor (which pissed me off)My Satanic Bible was laying on the table and then the pastor says "you are going to hell". WTF? Who is he to judge me? he thought he was going to come in my house and try to bless it. I just laughed and asked them to leave if they can't respect me beliefs so now my mom wants to take my 3 daughters to church with her and have them baptized. I knew something like this might happen when I told people who I was but damn I didn't know it would be this harsh.

well, if you had read some of the earlier posting you might have not told your mom jack shit.
people suck, are judgemental, and like to destroy that which they do not understand.
I would be very careful, your mom might try to take your kids away from you.

good luck,

Morgan

jeeeezus, that sucks. And you're much older than I am too. I wouldn't be surprised if they call your parenting rights into question solely because of your religion either. Just shows how moronic and destructive people can be when they get their heads lost in petty superstitions.

Thankfully I live in a northern-style city with a more open-minded family... although I do go to Uni in Orlando, which is right on the edge of the bible belt. As a result I've run into lots of confrontational fundamentalists. The only one I've actually had a civil, respectful religious discussion with was a street-soliciting Mormon, of all people.

So it goes.

Well I wanted to let her know because I got sick of her putting her religion on me and my kids. My kids don't believe in god either so they just look at her like she's nuts.

I have a friend who is a satanist and her mom did try to take her kids but they said it was her belief so they didn't take them away and I don't think my mom is that cold hearted.

Thanks, brother. What kind of painting do you do? I always had great respect for painters for I could never really ... Grasp ... For lack of a better word ... The concept of painting. I was a lot more pencil, pen and ink. Pm me some of your work if you can. I'd like to check it out.

Unfortuanally, get used to it.
Unless you move and cut off all contact with your mom it won't stop.
Mine has been trying for more than 20+ years. I just used to ask her the name of priest, where it was located cause it was mostly all talk with her being a causal Xitan. Now shes bornagain, and I just talk to her, and cut her off on the cell phone when she starts. But, at least she knows the name of her priest now. lol

Like I said good luck, be careful, and never mention drinking and drugs to your mom. You are young with 3 young kids. My friends dad tried to take her son, and she was just a goth chick.

people suck

Rites, schmites. There aren't any rules about this kind of thing anyway.

If I feel somebody needs to know, I'll tell them. If not, I take pleasure in the fact that they are unknowingly conversing with *gasp* a Satanist! People are silly anyways.

Rights my ass haven't you found out already that we live in a time where are supposed rights are given up in order to suit the governments "need"? When you find some police force that gives a shit about our rights let me know because where I live cops don't give two shits about rights until a lawyer gets involved.

And where does this matter in being a Satanist in public or not ?

Are you a theist ? Because as The Zebu wrote, LaVeyan Satanists don't have "rites" and don't have to hide themselves from other people.

There are a few groups like the ONA that want their members to shroud their religion in total secrecy, so that's probably where the idea came from. To each his own, but, being a denominational belief, it certainly doesn't apply to Satanism as a whole, which doesn't really have any set-in-stone dogmas that apply to the entire religion.
