Kia Sorcery Wiki The Satanism Page
An excerpt reads:
As a religion, Satanism in any lasting popularity begins with the Modern Satanism surrounding and as a response to The Satanic Bible, a text compiled, written and edited by Anton Szandor LaVey and published in the late 1960s. Before that, Satanism had only a literary and fantastic existence as a religion. Within that tenuous literary context, certain philosophical postures, principles, and values developed as both the result of condemnation and of reactionary exaltation.
