Anton LaVey was an occultist working in the 1960’s and 1970’s, whose system of thought is best explored in his book, The Satanic Bible.
These statements were controversial when he wrote them in The Satanic Bible, and still remain so today, even amongst Satanists.
It might be worth reading through them and forming your own view. Do you agree with them?
From a gay and bisexual Satanists point of view, LaVey was positively pro sexuality in all its forms: gay, straight or perverse. He encourages us to embrace our sexuality and 'base' desires, and celebrate in full the gift of humanity, and all it has to offer.
Not surprisingly, LaVey found many followers in the gay and bisexual community. Indeed he still does so today.
Anton LaVey, whether you follow his philosophy or not, did Satanism a huge service. He was a charismatic and charming man who courted a lot of publicity and moral outrage. He did more than any other person to bring Satanism out of the shadows, and into the popular culture. For that we owe him a great debt of gratitude.
I strongly recommend you read The Satanic Bible, particularly if you are new to Satanism. It’s always a good place to start your exploration of what is right for you.
