|I attended nine years of Catholic grade school (K-8th) and one year of Catholic high school. I was asked not to return to that high school, partially because I was seen as a threat to the "Catholic standard" of learning. I doubted the existence of god and I was known to ask questions that made other people question their beliefs in god. The teachers never answered my questions. I was left to form my own opinion on god, religion and my way of life. It was the only good thing the Catholic church ever did for me.
||I began to study religions to find the answers that priests and catholic teachers answered only with "You must have faith and believe". I've studied Wicca and Witchcraft in general, Paganism, and a few others. None of those answered my questions either. Then one day, while looking for new books to read, I found The Satanic Bible. It gave me the answers that I had searched for. I realized that the way of life for me was to just live and be true to myself. I don't practice Satanism as my religion. I do however hold many of it's beliefs to be true. I am not a member of the Church Of Satan but I do think of myself as a Satanist. Many people think that Satanism and devil worship are the same thing. I have only one thing to say to those people. Until you know the difference, don't tell me that I'm ignorant. Refusing to see the truth is the only true ignorance. I am who I am because of many years of study and thought. I was forced into christianity before I could even talk. Well, I can talk now and I say: I chose my own way of life and I will not be told that I am wrong.
||I am the Pagan and that's my story.
