4. The Church of Satan
Satanism is the worship of Satan. There are many images depicting the Church of Satan where peculiar rites of the dark are performed. According to Satanists, worshipping him isn’t what they’re about at all. They in fact don’t believe in a literal Satan. Rather, Satan is used as a metaphor to represent their belief in the power of fantasy, which they claim to share with many other religions. They therefore use Satan as an opposition to the fiction and the fantasy of the presence of an ethereal, divine figure—like Christ.
