What You Think Satanism Is Probably Isn't True

How many of you think Satanism is about worship to the devil? I would have agreed that was my knowledge about a week ago. But after doing extensive research, I realized hey! I was wrong.
And if you think that's what it's about, you are too.
Let's learn together, shall we?
First of all, yes, some people who claim to be Satanists do worship a "devil". But that's not a true representation of the religion. It's a broad representation of a group of Western Religions that all have diverse beliefs. 
There are two main types- theistic and atheistic. Theistic is the one that isn't a good representation and gives them the bad name. They believe that Satan is a god to worship, blah blah, blah. This, however, doesn't make them evil.
The true Satanists believe that Satan is not a deity, but a word or symbol to represent the nature of who we are at birth- people who feel no battle between thoughts and feelings, and who do not embrace the concept that we are souls trapped in a body. Satan represents pride, liberty, and individualism.
Of course, Christians took that as an attack on their god and labelled an anti god Satan. This god, in case you didn't notice, doesn't give you individualism, pride, and especially not liberty (from what I've experienced personally, so please don't take that as offensive). That's how the devil became Satan. Because of a small rejection of what someone else believed.
So, cough cough, why must you be hating on someone with opposite beliefs? It doesn't make them a bad person to believe freedom and pride, does it?

While I know that Satanism isn't all devil worship, there are still people who practice what I've heard called "Theological Satanism" which I'm going to guess is the Satanism that people think is real. The one with the Black Masses, etc. 

Please, please pray for religious vocations.

It all depends on what you believe. We know that Satan was written of before Satanism, so its not like we modeled our entire view of Satan based on what Satanists believe.

I have to give you that, he was around before. That doesn't mean "he" was the same thing. I'm not the same as Bree from down the road. Tongue Out 
My point is that unlike worshipping a God, Satanism worships values. And most people don't see that. Another stereotype launched on to undeserving people, friendships that can never be discovered because people were taught to hate something, and in turn, someone.
