This is the best post you've made thus far!  I salute you then.  I
think you got it.  And I'm glad you understand what I say and don't
either pretend you don't and try to fuck with me, or really don't and
ask me the same questions 100 times and make yourself BORING as some
others do.  This is a GOOD post and what you have said about your own
beliefs and day to day change is WISE.

Doc, on his deathbed, probably never considered "Jesus" but he MAY have
considered Adonai.  That was the deity he may have heard of from
childhood, very early on, being in the ethnic group he was in.  And oh
yes, that was his ethnic group.  His parent's conception of Deity was
nature.  But then, what did THEY believe when they were in metaphorical
fox holes?  Adonai Elohim and etc?  Maybe.

I don't know what he REALLY thought from day to day or on his
deathbed.  But the point is - I also don't care!  I DO NOT rail against
Satanists who believe in a LITERAL Devil with horns.  I don't care what
anyone believes per se.  What are THEY LIKE AS PEOPLE - that is what is
MORE REAL to me.  A fellow Black Magician that comes into my house and
steals my shit is an ENEMY.  But a christian who preaches about Jehova
and can be TRUSTED alone in my house, is NOT my enemy.  It boils down
to the simplest of things, in REAL life - i.e., what I DO. And what I
DO is real.  I can philosophize on a million different things and
diatribe polemically talking out of 100 sides of my mouth as I did with
a Maoist group.  What I DO, however, is real.  The rest is nothing.

I don't view the LaVey family as a dynasty or care about their personal
doings.  I don't give a flying fuck about their family squabbles and I
think it was stupid to air all of that in front of the damned market
place.  Well, Bob Larson the Christian got richer for all of it.  When
I could easily have done so, ask this, ask that, even over a phone, I
never bothered to ask: if I had cared, I'd have asked.  I DO know that
words can be misinterpreted - either by accident or DELIBERATELY (like
Prinn tries pathetically to do, INVITING someone, anyone, to trash him
all over again.  He has a mosquito complex - he tries to BE one and he
pics and chooses different people to OBSESS over on this ng and BOY,
does he obsess or what....)  I think I spelled it out pretty clearly
and I tried like hell to be polite about it.

Satanism is Satanism and different people have different ways of
conceptualizing things - and that doesn't normally stay the same unless
the person is stagnant and barren.  What a person DOES is more
important than what a person "thinks."  Lots of people swear they think
or believe this or that but their actions, their deeds, PROVE they
don't think or believe any of it.
