1. Anton LaVey



Founder of the Church of Satan.

Believe it or not, they do not worship or believe in Satan and they do not believe in God. "Satan" is just a symbol of freedom and the ego.

As Anton said;

"Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years."

" I mean, there are about as many views on Satanism as there are different types of Christianity (laughs). For me, I was living my life that way before I read that book, you know, "The Satanic Bible" by Anton LaVey, and I think that book was mistitled because once you hear the word Bible people automatically think of religion and it's really not — it's more of a philosophy, really. You are not worshipping anything when you are a Satanist.

I mean, there are other types of Satanists who actually worship some kind of horned creature, which is a God that is Christian if you really look at it, because Satan is a God within Christianity and just one they (Christians) don't want you to worship. I mean, I wouldn't want to worship that fellow either. I mean, I dont see anything positive in the Christian Satan either. If someone comes up to me and asks if I am a Satanist, I ask them first "What does that mean to you?" and then if they can explain to me intelligently what a Satanist is, then I can say yes or no, depending. But if they say, "Oh, you slaughter animals and pray to the devil," well, then you are way off there.

That is not in my way of life. But Satanism is not a religion and I don't have a religion myself. I don't believe in one God and I would be the last person to say there is one because there is no real proof there is a God and there has been no one person to prove to the world there is a God. Maybe some people be convinced they have proof for themselves there is one, but it has never happened that one person could prove that to the rest of the world. And the sad thing is that people can't accept that not everyone believes in the same thing and can't give people that respect without thinking of them as a lower type of species or something because they don't share a same belief. It makes no sense to me whatsoever.

And if people had that type of respect for each other then we would have way less wars because many wars happen because of religious differences."

7. Richard Ramirez



"A burglar, rapist and sadistic serial murderer who terrorized the Los Angeles area in the mid-eighties, he was captured by civilians on August 31, 1985. A self-identified Satanist, Ramirez had actually read The Satanic Bible. His 'calling card' was the inverted pentagram traditionally associated with Satanism, which he left drawn on a wall, or, in one case, carved into the body of a victim.

In 1983, he even made a special trip to San Francisco to meet LaVey personally. LaVey was later reported as commenting that, 'I thought Richard was very nice - very shy. I liked him.' "His trial was a media circus. Ramirez would engage in such antics as flashing a pentagram he had drawn in the palm of his hand, shouting 'Hail Satan!' and holding up his fingers alongside his head in imitation of devil's horns. Parts of the statement he made during his sentencing even seemed to echo some of the themes of The Satanic Bible:

"I am beyond good and evil.... Lucifer dwells in all of us.... I don't believe in the hypocritical, moralistic dogma of this so-called civilized society. I need not look beyond this courtroom to see all the liars, the haters, the killers, the crooks, the paranoid cowards.... Hypocrites one and all. We are all expendable for a cause. No one knows that better than those who kill for policy, clandestinely or openly, as do the governments of the world which kill in the name of God and country...."
(Cited in Carlo 1996, p. 395). ..."

8. Liberace



This super flamboyant classical pianist was one of the first members of the Satanic Church and one of Anton LaVey's close friends.


 

Hail Satan all the way ftw.

They're all f*cked up. If there's a satan, there's a God too. It's like they just want attention.

UGH people like you make me want to smash my desktop against the fucking wall! Did you not read properly???

They DO NOT WORSHIP or BELIEVE in Satan and they DO NOT BELIEVE in God. Satan is a SYMBOL of man's hidden desires. They worship the natural side of man. Satan's image is used as shock value. GET IT?

And I could say the same for Christians, fucking worshiping a false "GOD" who smites and kills people and puts them in hell if they don't suck up to him. Praying to an image of a dude wearing a crown of thorns and nailed to a cross is ok? Kinda sadistic and gross and bloody, DONTCHA THINK? As Kafka said,

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

But Richard Ramirez is fucked up, he's a serial killer so duh.

Jayne Mansfield and Sammy Davis Jr.????? Seriously? Wow!
Being an atheist I will vote for your list, even if I find the concept of satan to be ...ummm...laughable.

@Rath

Actually, Crowley was more of an occultist than a Satanist. He was into more mystic stuff and he died way before LaVey even created the Church of Satan.

Robert Johnson supposedly sold his soul to the devil (obviously a myth), but no he did not "worship" the devil.

@thenoah

Led Zep are not Satanist. Seriously dude, just because Stairway to Heaven has secret "messages" when played backwards and Jimmy Page was fascinated by Aleister Crowley? They didn't worship the devil or join the Satanic church or anything.

Liberace is super freaky. He looks like a wax figure. argh!

I didn't know about Liberace! My husband is a Satanist. I love how even after you explained the concept of Satanism in your list, people still commented on how stupid it is to worship the devil. LOL. People are dumb.

To the author...you are ignorant and gullible if you buy into that whole "we just believe in being yourself" crap. Do some REAL research. And start with the name Dr MICHAEL AQUINO. founder of Temple of Set AND the chief at ..where??? THE NSA! They like Mind Control..blood ritual and pedophilia. They are selling you kids OUT.

What about Walt Disney?
I guess he was more associated with being an Illuminati but that included Satanism. There are dozens of freeze frames of Disney characters making satanic gestures!

It's kind of moronic that people take things so seriously yet mock jokingly and not even really know shit. Isn't it hypocritical? Jesus and/or Satan, they could be associated, they could be thought also as separate entities. And only religions and the standardized ideals from society that make up a lot if not most of what someone calls 'fact'. People fear, people want, people want to understand, people don't care, or people only think they know.

To the guy who posted about micheal aquino. Yes he formed the temple of set,yes he was in to mind control for the government and yes he was a pedophile...But he left the church of satan in 1975 because of a difference in belief and as far as Ramierez is concerned he was A DEVIL WORSHIPER not a Santanist, Big Difference......kudos on the list
