It encourages independence of thought and strength of self, and typically involves extensive use of interpersonal and intrapersonal psychological theory. "Satan" is a symbol generally representing the attributes of power that mainstream religions typically reject in their requisite submission of humans to a deity. LaVeyan Satanists do not believe in the being known as "Satan" as conceptualized in the Abrahamic religions; "Satan" in this sense is more rhetorical device and less pivotal focus. The self is really the pivotal focus in LaVeyan Satanism, and a more applicable critique of the philosophy, IMO, would be to focus on the potential pitfalls of self-glorification.

    So, for what it's worth, there is no "Satan" here to reject, as rejecting the Abrahamic concept of Satan is actually a prerequisite to being a LaVeyan Satanist. I suspect the sense of shock accompanied by the term "Satanism" is somewhat valuable to them because the point of LaVeyan Satanism is to awaken people out of the conformity, restriction, and submission they believe is part of mainstream religion, so that they may flourish in their individuality and take full advantage of life. Plus they might get lulz out of it, as I suspect johnny is here.
    My understanding of LeVay (whose birth name was Howard... haha) was that he was quite the showboater. One of his favorite instruments to play was the pipe organ (how showy), and he spent a lot of his early adulthood in carnivals. He seemed to be in the thick of things, around people, liked to organize groups, knew lots of people. It fell right into line with him to like and know how to attract attention and poke people in ways to get them riled up, all the better to get some press. He was already a local personage when he decided to direct a group he was in into the lines of this new organization; part of choosing the "Satan" angle was to create controversy that would stir up more opportunities and unnerve people.

    ... Looks like you guys have hit on much of that, though...

    Oh wow, interesting. Danke, Fraulein.

    So LeVay was a carnie? Makes a lot more sense.

    Satan is a breath of fresh air in a world where the bad guys make all kinds of excuses from child abuse to drunken memory loss. Whereas Satan was upfront, no excuses, no whinning, no blaming others, no denial. Satan tells it like it is: I would rather rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.

    Satan inspires me to take a breath of fresh air.

    From the Infernal Diatribe, Chapter II, Verse 13.



    13 The most dangerous of all enthroned lies is the holy, the sanctified, the
    privileged lie the lie everyone believes to be a model truth.
    It is the fruitful mother of all other popular errors and delusions. It is a hydra‐headed tree of unreason with a thousand roots. It is a social cancer!

    The Satanic Bible is a direct response to the Bible, and any one educated enough to read the Bible in context or from a historic perspective could come to similar conclusions on many of these statements and not be a Satanist. They could still be a Christian in fact. Didn't Jesus also question organized religion and the Pharisees and Sadducees? Doesn't the Bible pretty much tell us we are the only animal who even needs commandments?
