As an independent Satanist, I have no allegiance with any Satanist organizations. Thus, I don’t operate by any rules set by organizations, only my own, and I have a lax attitude towards any rules in organizations.
All that matters to me is the fundamental philosophy of Satanism, I’m not interested in rules or codes set by such entities as the Church of Satan. I just want to follow the philosophy of Satanism and apply it my own way.
To be fair, the rules in the Church of Satan are also seen as less like strict commandments and more like guidelines or suggestions. But make no mistake, there is something one can take from these guidelines.
