Anton LaVey: We feel that the, ah, the so-called carnal side of man, or the carnal nature of man, is the most important. We feel the soul is just a pitance, it's something that's sort of rung out, like if you squeeze an orange, you get a few drops of juice out of it, and certainly this can be the essence. But this doesn't mean that the orange is any less important, simply because the juice comes out of it. We feel that the body of man, the carnal symbolism of man, is by far the most important.

Needed, really.
19 May 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

Anton LaVey was one of the most intelligent men that ever walked this earth.

Satanism got a bad rap because everyone thought they were mutants that only lived to kill babies and listen to bad heavy metal. La Vey sets the record straight by pointing out it's 'natural' inclinations.

La Vey came off as the showman that he is. One gets the feeling he loves putting people on.

I thought seeing the other (Unknown) people that joined him was interesting. The fact that folks from all walks of life joined his movement.

This really should be seen by those who truly believe in freedom of religion. This shows a side of one of the most misrepresented religions that ever existed.
