Church Of Satan

Taken from "Church of Satan - commonly asked questions"

What is the Church of Satan?

We were established in 1966 C.E. by Anton Szandor LaVey who declared
the Year One, thus opening the floodgates to a revolution designed
to smash the hypocrisy and unreason which has reigned for the past
2000 years. We have, since 1966, stood as the most formidable threat
to those who would halt progress in the name of spirituality. We are
explorers on the untrodden paths of science, human motivation and
mystery -- all that is most _truly_ occult.

Those who proudly carry our cards identifying themselves as members
have the strength and dedication to implement the tools of Satan,
the imagination to confound and confuse, the wisdom to recognize
the Unseen in our society, and the passions of a classical Romantic
soul.

In modern parlance, the Church of Satan may be called a user-driven
organization. Members are involved and advanced exactly as their
own desires, abilities and accomplishments dictate. There are no
set activities, meetings or contacts. The new member comes to the
organization, ideally, with his own goals and plans for achieving
them; he presents them to us and is directed in the way that would
be most mutually beneficial. The CoS is not looking for people who
join and want us to "put on a show," taking them by the hand,
introducing them to their new friends, telling them what time to
show up for the weekly get-together and what to wear. Satanists are
not put in contact automatically, or even by geographical proximity.
True elitists are by their nature very individualistic and neighboring
members won't necessarily have anything in common; "just being
Satanists together" isn't enough. When we observe members making
advances on their own in their chosen fields of endeavor, we may put
them in contact with other members running on the same track; we've
watched this happen many times and we're pleased and proud to say the
results are often magical. There are also members who are satisfied
simply to join and be counted among the adherents to a philosophy
that best embodies their own true nature.
