Hooray for Satan!
I don’t know why I take these quizzes really. Does it matter to me to know who my inner rock star is? Or how well I stack up against my peers in my successful distinction between there, they’re and their? Still, I saw a quiz that asked which (witch? 😉 religion was right for me, and I took it.
I am amused to announce that I’m a Satanist. I wonder if there’s a checkbox for that on PSU’s equal opportunity employment form somewhere. This amused me particularly since I don’t believe in the Judeao-Christian God I was indoctrinated to believe in. That I don’t believe in God per se, I similarly give little credence to the existence of His somehow both lesser and yet still equal counterpart, Satan.
So, while the title is misleading, I agree with the description “focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes.” Though I was surprised by the apparent vehemence with which bk agreed saying, “yes, they got you!”, and “C’mon! Satan deserves his own blog post. At least.” (emphasis mine.)
So, I present to you, my Satanism:
| You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don’t actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.
We’ve also been watching the first season of Queer as Folk and I share some musical and aesthetic tastes with the mainstream stereotype of the gay man, even if not the fashion sense or sexual preference. Still, why is Satan only the Prince of Darkness? I think maybe my gay alter-ego must be the Queen of Darkness
