Are you Satanists?
This is a bit of a loaded question, since there are several
different conceptions of what Satanism really is. Most pagans do not
worship Satan or practice Satanic rites. Some pagans practice
something called Satanism, but it is a far cry from the Hollywood
image of Satanism. These people tend to value pleasure as a primary
motivation, or to find meaning in images which the repressive
Christian churches attacked. For some of these folk, reclaiming the
word "Satanist" is an act of resistance against oppression. For more

If what you're really wanting to know is do we sacrifice babies
and worship an evil incarnate, the answer's no.
