No one in their right mind who knows what satanism churchs actually practice (animal sacrifice, blood drawing, former satanist told me all about it, etc.) would vote for satanist prayers to be allowed anywhere.


And all catholic priests are child molesters and advocate the bombing of abortion clinics.

That is such BS and an outright lie that it retroactively colors everything you've ever said. All it takes is a visit to their official website, or listening to interviews from their "high priests" to debunk all that. Blood drawing? Seriously?

I would like to point out that "official website" information and interviews with high priests is exactly the sort of sourcing that I would try to avoid, if looking for an answer to the question of "what Satanists do."

Not saying they actually do any of that crazy stuff. Just saying that you can't really appeal to their "official sources" as being reliable contradictors of that accusation. As an example, I don't think a single "official source" from Catholicism would have told you that their priests were molesting boys.

People should be legally allowed to publicly practice whatever religion they want.

Okay, now let's take what you said about Satanism and apply it to Catholicism:

No one in their right mind who knows what catholic churches actually practice (child molestation, bombing of abortion clinics, just turn on the news once in a while, etc.) would vote for christian prayers to be allowed anywhere.

It's just as stupid. You're taking a few isolated instances and using them to form an opinion on an entire religion.

For the record, there are (in a sense) two types of Satanism. One that is more of a philosophy, that idolizes what they believe Satan stands for, and builds a life principles loose organization around it (LaVeyan Satanism), and one that actually tries to "worship" the Biblical Satan.

Yeah, don't know how I managed to mess that one up. My point still stands, though.

Maybe it does, but it's a completely separate issue from the one I brought up. The reliability of "official sources" is very different from whether that religion should be allowed a public forum.
