Quarrelling is the last thing I want to do. I admit I may have come on a bit strong. For that I apologize.
I have noticed that I lot of people shutter when they hear the word satanist. Satanism is actually a mock of Christianity -in name anyways. They believe in respect and not giving people respect who don't give it to them. They are very much for justice and reality. Satanists are atheists in that they don't believe in God (or Satan). They are their own gods and they worship themselves.
Satanists do have some parts of philosophy I don't agree with which is why I don't consider myself a Satanist. I do like their saying "Stupidity should be painful!" :-)
The reason I brought this up is so people would be a little more educated about some of the basic philosophy and not use it as an evil symbol to make an inaccurate point. I'd trust a Satanist before I'd trust a Christian. At least you know what to expect from a Satanist.
I do see the point you are trying to make though. And I agree with who ever said that parents should be allowed to raise their children to believe what they like. After all, as adults they can change their programming. I did.
