This just occured to me and kind of interested to see what y'all think about it.


Satan is a Christian/Judaic icon. Therefor Satanists are actually either Christian or Jewish, depending on whether or not they believe that Jesus was the sun of God or not.


note: this is not meant to insult anyone, its just my own brand of logic and was wondering if its totally insane or has some logical merit

Well....

I'm fairly well read on La Vey Satanism. They use the Christian terminology of "satan" to define something other than the cloven-hoofed ruler of hell. Satan is the feral, primal, animal nature of mankind, with "God" being the divine, spiritual, higher self. Satanists strive to make these too inner beings into one whole, thus making their "God" (spirtuality) the Devil (primal instinctual human nature).

Much like any religion, they use ritual with symbolic meanings that evoke the energy they need to achieve a certain goal. They use darker imagery as this tends to bring out primal, ruthless, energy-filled feelings in people.

So, while they depend on Christian terminology to identify parts of their theology, their philosophy is not necessarily Christan-descendant.

The label "Satanist" is pretty confusing for people who aren't well versed in all its
competing definitions. At least to me, when I hear "Satanist", I think of all those
crime drama shows which (usually) feature young people in dark robes
doing horrible things to unwilling victims. While this might be an obvious stereotype that's
convenient for the TV script, its not unreasonable to say that there are people of that
ilk out there calling themselves Satanists. And if that's the case, just because they
appropriate a JudeoChristian icon, I certainly don't think that makes them Christians
or Jews. Christianity and Judaism have moral codes that aren't accepted by them, so
logically, they can't be labelled either one.
