Church of Satan

The CoS was founded in 1969 by counterculture author Anton LaVey. The Church advocates materialism, indulgence and personal gratification, but officially claims to be non-spiritual.

Gordian Vizier, a national Church of Satan representative, said this regarding the recent murder of Heather Rogers by Mario Belphegor: “Mario acted out of his personal will, as all followers of Satan must do, but this does not mean that he had the support or backing of the Church in this alleged murder.” Vizier’s statements have drawn widespread condemnation from political and religious leaders.
