Celebrity Satanists

Mysterious Times

Spraguealtar1Anton Szandor LaVey (born Howard Stanton Levey) founded the Church of Satan on April 30th (Walpurgisnacht) 1966. It was founded on a religious philosophy championing Satan as the symbol of personal freedom, individualism and indulgence, it being argued that this represented the true carnal nature of humanity. The philosophy behind the religion was not so much the worship of Satan (which doesn’t happen) but the rebellion against ‘God’ whose religions were considered by LaVey as impeding the progress of freedom, science and mankind throughout the ages.

One of LaVey’s main collaborators was the underground filmmaker and author, Kenneth Anger, a follower of Aleister Crowley’s ‘Thelema’ and member of the OTO. The formation of the Church of Satan and the Hollywood connections of its founders soon began to attract a number of celebrities to their ranks. Although membership lists are private, there are some celebrities who are publicly known as Satanists.
