Excellent.  I knew that was somewhere.  Here's another one.

"ALL religious of a spiritual nature are inventions of man.  He has created
an entire system of gods with nothing more than his carnal brain.  Just
because he has an ego and cannot accept it, he has had to externalize it into
some great spiritual device he calls 'god'."

TSB, Page 44.  Right in plain sight -- the phrase "really fucking obvious"
comes to mind.	The chapter is called "The God You Save May Be Yourself." I
don't know what's so hard to "get" here.  I guess maybe if I had a 160 IQ
like "Satanic Enterprises," I would be able to see the hidding meaning. 

I think LaVey's atheism should be undeniable considering how outspoken he was
about it in his published works..  I think Aquino just wanted to "out-Satan"
LaVey, to be his own little Lucifer.  (What a dork.)  Of course to do so, he
had to feed off of his host by beginning this whole "LaVey was cool until
1975, when he decided not to be a real Satanist like me" routine.

This "what LaVey was really all about" debate should appear to have no room
for argument on one side, but people will always surprise you.	We know our
religion much better than the Xtoid parasites who attempt to attest

[Disclaimer: The following phrase you are about to read is not to be taken
literally; that is, it is not to imply that the demi-God "Satan" really
exists.  Satan is a symbol we have taken from the most obnoxious of all
contemporary and locally common religions to symbolize our opposition to that
religion and the anti-humanity principles it embodies.  We have chosen to
rebelliously accept the name "Satanist," a name they are willing to give us
regardless of our beliefs -- as long as they don't involve their God.  All
calls upon the name of "Satan" are symbolic and should not be interpreted as
otherwise.  Thank you.]

Hail Satan!

(Happy now, "Xtains"?)
