What can I say. I was always fascinated by the pagan religions because it's a modernized version of the age-old faiths that preceded christianity, and also the way they emphasize loving and respecting the earth more than other religions. I was a catholic. I was a druid, and I was also a buddhist for a brief time, so I've been all over the spiritual spectrum. Satanism, not paganism, is what I'm opposed to.
Indeed. Satanism is perhaps the greatest blasphemy the Christians have performed against the Pagan faiths. Satanism is really just a branch of Christianity which glorifies the opponent of the Christian deity. It's the Anti-Christianity, or Inverse Christianity, but still basically part of the Christian faith. They stole our practices, perverted our deities, and twisted our mythologies toward their warped view of the worlds.
I don't particularly view Satanists with disdain however...just pity them honestly; for they worship a weak "god". Satan is hardly the ruler of Hell; as Hell has no unified king. He is little more than the Christian Boogeyman. Should a person who worships Satan start to annoy me, I often mock them by saying, "I met your lord centuries ago...I was not impressed."
Funny, true story though...I actually did meet Satan, or at least a demon claiming to be him, centuries ago as the Imp. We had a competition in which I utterly made a fool of him. ^^

Yeah. It just seemed like you were saying christianity intentionally created satanism as blasphemy against the pagans, which isn't true at all. Actually, I'd say that all satanists pretty much are really just atheists pretending to worship Satan or just idolize him as a "symbol of rebellion." Most of them aren't devil worshippers so much as just idiots, like many communists and fascists sound like idiots, saver a minority of black mass cultists who probably are genuinely evil as they perform truly evil things.
