History Topics

Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan in America, is born Howard Stanton Levey in Chicago, Illinois. The Church of Satan does not involve worshipping or even believing in any sort of devil or other supernatural entities.

According to Peter Gilmore:

"My real feeling is that anybody who believes in supernatural entities on some level is insane. Whether they believe in The Devil or God, they are abdicating reason. ...

Satan is a model or a mode of behavior. Satan in Hebrew means 'adversary' or 'opposer'; one who questions."
