Satanic Community?

There is a misconception among those new and fairly new to Satanism that there is a Satanic community. The concept of Satanism and community in general is an oxymoron. This false concept is something that self-proclaimed Satanic leaders from the past, would push, in an attempt to grow a following. Ever since Satanists have been presenting on the internet, there have been those who have attempted in creating a Satanic community, and each has failed, greatly! The problem is that those who preach community within Satanism are wanting to become its leader, in order to gain popularity to feed their weak, unbalanced egos. Also, more than not, it is used to make a monetary profit from their following “the community” . It is pushed by these pseudo “Satanic” leaders, that a Satanic community really does exist. They fail to mention that by “community” they mean, those who follow them, who pay into their vision of Satanism, who donate personal time and money to them. When such “leaders” are questioned or if anyone disagrees with anything they preach, they take a tantrum. Either by lashing out and bashing the one who dared to contradict them, trying to turn others against the said person. Or they gaslight the person prior to blocking them on social media. In some cases all of this and sadly more. This is why in past and even still today, why attempt of bringing Satanists together as an actual community hasn’t been and never will be possible. It always will end in a crash and burn.

There is no denying that there are cliques of Satanists, Satanic groups, forums, and places where Satanists congregate both online and off. However, none of this equates to a communal concept of “Satanic Community”. We can loosely use the term “community” when pertaining to, for example, a Satanic Facebook page, but in reality, such a page is not representing what community means to all Satanists nor does everyone in the said group want to be a part of a community. Satanists are individualists and do not wish to be part of a herd mentality. Satanists do not follow a herd nor are they conformists. A Satanist lives a Satanic life which includes the concept of self-preservation and doing what is best for oneself. Therefore the community notion “for the greater good of all” is not a Satanic mindset.

The question has been posed if my podcast Devil’s Coven is a community, my reply is a strong No! To set it clear for those who thought differently, Devil’s Coven is a podcast. Its members who regularly tune in are called its coven. This does not equate to an actual coven nor does it to a community. Sharing knowledge, experiences, and raising energy through Satanic prayer together might be similar to an actual coven, a congregation, but this alone is not even close to what a community translates.

The only thing that we as Theistic Satanists have in common with each other, is the knowledge that Satan is a real sentient being. The only practice we hold in common is our devotion and worship to Satan. This is not enough to claim that we as Satanists, as a whole on the larger scale, are a community. Theistic Satanism with all of its denominations, is unlike any other path, unlike any other religion. Satanists, especially those new to His path, need to stop trying to make it so (stop trying to make it be like other paths which you once came from or which attracts you in some way). In my opinion, you either embrace Satanism or step off the path. Maybe another walk upon the LHP or another other, route altogether, will be more suited for you. Know that there are several turns you can take when walking the Devil’s road.

  1. Yer essay is pretty much spot-on. Dis goat done been bashin eez head agin’ uh brick wall fer years, trying ta build “community”. An’ it ain’t worked none. Da kids is too busy stumblin’ round makin’ da same mistakes *we* made, so dey’s too busy fer “community”…dey ain’t much listenin’ ta no Satanic Elders, so dey cain’t build no community. Da grown-up goats is too busy chasin’ money, tryin’ ta keep uh roof o’er dey heads, so dey ain’t able ta be parta any “community” either. At present, it’s both uh good thing an’ uh bad thing ta have no community. In da future, Ah think we ain’t gonna have no choice but ta come together as a true Community, ‘r da be legislatively wiped out by political groups dat see us as uh convenient way ta distract voters when whistleblowers is makin’ waves. We ain’t gonna be able ta return ta hidin’ in ar closets…we’d hafta go completely offline, off-grid, ta escape da online surveillance…an’ dat just ain’t gonna happen, I reckon. Ar only hope for community is the loose affiliation of isolated, and often disparate, individual Satanists. An’ den dare’s da issue of Satanic Theism/Deism, and Atheism….dem groups ain’t keen on mingling.

    1. Thanks for your comment. As I stated in my article, Community isn’t nor should it ever be a part of Satanism. We each stand alone. To want Satanic community is to want to turn actual Satanism into something other. I do believe that we as Satanists should return to the underground realms and not present Satanism online to the vast majority. The populace will never accept Satanism in any form and will always think of the negative stereotype. I do agree with supporting other Satanists who are true to Satan and who don’t try to market Satanism for their own profit and glorification. We are all already being monitored and investigated, if you know it or not and this is another reason why we shouldn’t be trying to advertise Satanism to the general public if you catch what I’m saying (:
      Thank you again for sharing, I appreciate your input.
      Satanic Blessings,
