A Satanist living in two worlds

church-of-satan-ritual

This Church of Satan ritual with a child of Anton Lavey would be a cause of many misunderstandings to the mind of a not-Satanist “muggle”, a reason why there needs to be a barrier between the LHP and non-LHP worlds.

It is the nature of Satanism that most Satanists live in two worlds due in part to the prejudices society has against our religion, but also because we see reality differently to most people.  For instance I have a Twitter account for my Satanism and another for my life outside of Satanism.

A Luciferian blogger who is a Harry Potter fan refers to those outside of the LHP as muggles.  The Luciferian rightly argues that those in the LHP follow a magical path, one that the muggles folk such as Christians find strange and scary.  The world of the LHPer is like Diagon Alley in Harry Potter co-existing with but invisible to the muggle world.

It saves me a lot of trouble by keeping a barrier in place between the non-LHP and LHP worlds, for example, apart from a few exceptions I tend only to follow LHP accounts on my Satanist Twitter account.  On occasion I have a muggles attack me because they feel upset that they are excluded from my LHP-only social media accounts, those types don’t understand that just as in Harry Potter the worlds that Satanists live in and that of ordinary folk is so different and often is incompatible.

  1. This problem would be solved if you simply stopped calling yourself “Satanists” and used a more accurate label — something that means “secular humanists who dabble in the occult and like gothic aesthetics.” Gothatheists?
