Religion between Satanists, and Christions or Catholics

I would like to debate the fact that many Christians (Or some sort of Christianity) lets just say "dislike" my religion due to the fact that we are, not on the right page. I want to get people to understand things about us so we are not hated so much. (I would like to keep this between Satanists, and Christians only.)

Satanists, Catholics, Christians. Different flavors of the same brand of punch. In which case, you forgot to include Mormonism.

"Different flavors of the same brand of punch."

That's actually a very good way of putting it. I like this one: You can spray-paint shit any color you want, it's still shit.

I'm sort of surprised that you don't want Christians to dislike Satanism.

Satanism is a religion/anti-religion/lifestyle/whatever that is designed to be opposed to Christianity. It deliberately embraces concepts and symbols that are seen as evil in traditional Christianity. Hell, even the very name "Satanism" shows this - it is the great enemy of Christianity, as Satan is the great enemy of God-fearing Christians.

I would think that by calling yourself a Satanist, you are declaring yourself an opponent of Christianity.

Although that is true, there are many different types of Satanism, but all under the same name. Alot like Christians, and their "Westboro Baptist Church". (Google it if you don't know who they are.) I don't know much about it, but I'm sure most don't consider them Christians. Just like in Satanism, there are outcasts. Here I am not trying make peace between us, I'm simply stating not all of us are sacraficial, and not all of us kill in the name of Lucifer. I just want people to understand we are not some crazy murderers, as a matter of fact, some of our churches do charity work.

Ah, I see what you mean now. Yeah, Satanism is one of the most misunderstood religions around, thanks to centuries of fire and brimstone preachings and decades of Hollywood horror movies :)

Well I don't know exactly what you mean by WANTING to hate Christians. At the beginning of the Satanic Bible, it claims "for all the centuries of shouting down the Devil has received, he has never shouted back at his detractors. But now is the time to shout back". So basically, we didn't hate the Christians until they mocked and ridiculed us simply because they did not agree with our philosophy. They even went as far as to starting LIES that we worship a devil known as SATAN. We don't worship ANYTHING. We do believe in A Satan, but our Satan is basically just a representation of the power to make us happy.

I don't mean that Satanists want to hate Christians, but rather that they're opposed to Christian doctrine.

There is huge variety amongst Satanists, just as there is huge variety amongst Christians - I know of some Satanist sects that do literally worship Satan and the demons as spiritual entities. Some see Satan as a symbol of freedom rather than an actual deity. Some don't have any philosophic beliefs at all; they just call themselves Satanists and dress in black because it's cool.

But the way I see it, if you take on the name of the antagonist in the Christian holy book, adopt his insignias and take up practices traditionally associated with this character, that is a declaration of rebellion against Christianity. If Satanism was meant to be unrelated to Christianity, its founders would have taken up concepts that aren't derived from it (like what Wiccans have done). Hence I say that Satanists and Christians are meant to be opposed to each other.

God-fearing Christians

Makes you wonder when Christians say this, doesn't it? Why would you fear an imaginary friend that is supposed to love all?

because this god is worth fearing he could smite anyone down and he decides two other big things one:what happens to you on earth and two:where you go when you die

Satanism came before christianity and christianity was created from old satanic and pagan beleifs, legends, stories ect. They used Satan in thier religion as the enemy of it to have a fallout guy to blame evil on. Sure, we do want to go against christian beliefs but not entirely to the point to condone murder, theft, ect. It is a religion of free thought and independence, and christianity is slavery.

Posting a debate hoping for an extreme minority to debate against a vast majority is rather asinine don't you think?

I don't have a lot to say. But, I believe strongly that to criticize anything.. Be it a religion, good or bad; nation, good or bad; is just not the right pursuit, there is wrong everywhere in a different angle. Hence one should see where they stand before they can blame.

The unfortunate reality is that most Christians are ignorant to what we Satanists actually are. They have this idea in their head that we are "evil and devil worshiping". This is not the case at all. If they bothered to actually research Satanism they would discover that it isn't about sacrifice's, killings and devil worshiping; but instead more of a branch of Atheism. I went to a Catholic high school and when they discovered I was a Satanist, needless to say, every teacher gave me a dirty look whenever I walked past them! My friends were mostly atheists though, so they actually knew what Satanism was and weren't ignorant douche bags. Kinda funny thinking about it now though :)

In a perfect world we would all get along :)

Actually no, in a perfect world religion would not exist.
