Confessed Craigslist Killer


Even For Church of Satan

2/19/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Confessed serial killer Miranda Barbour is giving Satan a bad name  -- so says the high priest for the Church of Satan who says she's just too wicked. 

TMZ broke the story ... Barbour confessed to committing between 22 and 100 murders ... saying she was compelled to kill by the devil after joining a cult in Alaska.

High Priest Peter H. Gilmore tells TMZ ... the official Church of Satan has never had any involvement with Barbour ... and would NEVER accept her as a member.

Gilmore tells TMZ ... true Satanists don't believe in murder (not even sacrifices) ... and if Barbour is truly a killer she should get the death penalty. 

Gilmore says his church is not a cult but a legally recognized atheist organization ... adding Barbour is simply using Satan as justification for her crimes.

In other words, the devil DIDN'T make her do it.

Despite popular belief, the Church of Satan does not believe in the Devil or God and therefor do not worship the Devil. It is an atheist group. The rituals performed by the Church of Satan were actually intended to mock the rituals performed by the Catholic Church and if anything it is actually an anti-religion. All of this information can be looked up and confirmed on the very internet you're using right now.

satanist and Christians can be evil,.Jeffery dahmer claimed Christianity as his chosen faith but ate people as a hobby so who cares what label they give themselves. Evil comes from them and who they are at the core, having no empathy and being a complete sociopath is what i describe as evil. PEOPLE ae responsible for what they do lets not give credit to invisible forces that may or may not be there. We have free will we do have choices, some people suffer from mental illness which causes them to do things they wouldn't normally do but when they are medicated or realise what they did they have remorse but psychopaths lack that and she seems to be one of those Gems, they are becoming more and more common sadly.

How can you be a church of Satan and then call yourself an atheist? Atheists are NOT satanic. Atheists don't believe in any deity.

I'm catholic but I'm very open. I like learning so I've watched many do***entaries and read a lot of books. I've watched maybe three do***entaries relating to Satanism. A lot of them don't believe in sacrifices or murder, (I'm doing this from memory so I could be wrong) There are two main types of Satanism, theistic and Atheistic Satanism, so u can be an atheist while satanist. Alot of them seem to simply worship the devil but don't commit or encourage evil.

LaVeyan Satanism does not believe in evil.

The writer of the article obviously either is trying to sensationalize or didn't bother doing research. It's not that anything is "too evil" for Satanism. Satanism simply doesn't believe in evil. We're all just animals, and right and wrong are subjective.

What he's saying is that Satanism doesn't condone murder. And he's right; LaVeyan Satanists don't even sacrifice animals. ""When walking in open territory, bother no one. "" -Satanic Rule of the earth #11

One good thing about this article is that it illustrates in the comments how ignorant and small-minded folks are.

Why is it called Satanism if they're atheist? There's a good reason. Actually a few. Look them up.

He's right. Responsibility to the responsible; if you break the law, Satanism is no defence.
