Celebrate Satanic Independence!

Independence Day, the Most Satanic Holiday of ALL!

What holiday is most associated with Satanism? Is it Halloween, where witches and black cats decorate homes? Or, is it as LaVey suggested in the Satanic Bible, the birthday that should be the most Satanic Holiday of all?
LaVey suggested that the most Satanic Holiday of all should be one’s own birthday. While that does make sense from a Satanic perspective, a person’s birthday isn’t something that we can all celebrate at once. It only happens once a year and while the birthday is a special day indeed, it holds no special significance  for all of Satanism. I think that Lavey suggested this birthday to contrast with Christmas, which is celebrated as the birthday of Jesus. So instead of the birthday of a Christian god celebrated as a holiday [holy-day], one’s own birthday is celebrated instead.
This seems like another inversion of Christian values made into something Satanic. I think it’s fine. but I think also that we should focus on something that is more meaningful and relevant to all of us as Satanists, and that something is Independence Day!!
This summer on July 4th, I realized that Independence day celebrates all that it means to be independent.  While historically it represents the celebration of independence from the British first celebrated in 1776, this day of Independence can have a special meaning and important relevance for all of us as Satanists.
This holiday reminds us to cherish the freedoms that we are entitled to in America. The number one freedom that made Satanism possible is of course, freedom of religion. The constitution of America guarantees us certain ‘unalienable’ rights, such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and what’s more Satanic than that?
Aren’t most of us as Satanists working towards finding that happiness everyday? Don’t most of us enjoy  pursuing the religious freedom that affords us the opportunity to use Satanism as something worthy and worthwhile? And the enjoyment of life as one sees fit, that is certainly a Satanic attribute.
So on this Independence Day, let us be reminded that we have the opportunity to not only celebrate the birth of our nation, we also have the opportunity to celebrate the freedoms that make Satanism possible, and we additionally have the ability to enjoy life with Satanism in any way that we see fit.
As you enjoy your day today, think about what Independence means to you. I know what it means to me – it means that I am grateful to live in a great country that allows me to live the Satanic life that I cherish. I am  proud to be independent, I am proud to be a Satanist, and I am proud to live in America! Celebrate!

    Well this seems a bit like Americanized commercialism to bring one's personal beliefs and religion and blend it into something that a whole nation is celebrating that is a nation that is mostly made up of christians and those who are far from being Satanists ..also what about those Satanists who are from other countries ???You American indepence day has nothing to do with them so how can this be a Satanic holiday? …You seem to focus only on America and forget or are maybe just ignorant to the fact that witchcraft and Satanism originally stem from Europe way before the likes of your Anton Levay and so forth …stop trying to Americanize everything Venus it is just becoming bs to those of us who live outside from American and know true European history not what is presented only in your books ..haha sorry but this is reality what you present is not at least not all of it .

    "This seems like another inversion of christian values made into a satanic ruling that satanists to this day cling to as some day of special import.

    Whilst commenting on how celebrating one's birthday is unsuitable as it doesn't represent a "universal" day for "all of us as Satanists", you then suggest that the American "Independence Day" somehow does.

    For those of us who aren't American, and the very many of us who consider America's values and "freedoms" with a little less admiration than you do, that comes as a bit of a surprise.

    Outside of America, and I'm sure within it as well, you may well find many Satanists consider the knee-jerk (and knee-bend)cult of patriotism as contemptuous and repressive an ideology as any other "religion".

    For consideration,

    It's a pretty cool concept to appreciate, but what about long ago before the issues with xianty how we we allowed to be as we were as it should be now, but in all reality we truly aren't free and are among the hated by most people xian or not. Granted we aren't being burned to death or hung etc like back in the day but can you really say we are free on the material level? We really aren't ! not totally that is. The day of life and everything we do with it as we should aside from all satanic holidays noted every day is a holiday for me as a satanist. I mean no disrespect just an opinion as this is yours =D
