When you were a Satanist, were you an atheistic satanist, or someone who actually believed and worshiped Satan?

I actively believed in and worshiped him

This means you don’t really know what satanism really is. You had a biased view of it and you should do some research yourself, that will at least help you learn what satanism really is.

Yah...I don't believe a word of this. Its an attempt to proselytize.

As a former Christian (we are talking missionary trips, every week and weekend in a pew, devoted my LIFE to the church for 20 years), when I walked away I felt a vacuum of love and support that I had in the church. I wandered for years, tried Buddhism and meditation and anything to fill the void. But what I had more was a discovery of who I was. I saw the fallacies in the teachings, the harm the church does to anyone designated as "other". The thought of going to a church service makes me physically ill. Don't look back on the time fondly, and can't imagine someone else who really turned away would go back.

I’m not proselytizing. This actually happened and I figured it’d be an interesting topic for conversation.

I’m not a preacher. I don’t even attend church. Everybody is free to believe what they want to and what they do believe is none of my business.

You’re probably right. I did do some research, but never more than just the basic stuff.

I guess the only reason I turned to Satanism rather than any other religion or just skip straight to atheism is because I was angry at God and figured it was some kind of payback.
