Study: How Satanists see death


By Eric Marrapodi, CNN Belief Blog Co-Editor

(CNN) – You probably won’t hear «Amazing Grace» at a Satanist’s funeral, but you just might hear «My Way» by Frank Sinatra. A researcher from Concordia University recently published a journal article with some rare access to high level Satanists exploring what they think about death and dying.

Members in the Church of Satan are traced back to Anton LeVey who in 1966 founded the church in San Fransisco. He is also the author of the cannon of sorts for the group, The Satanic Bible first published in 1969. Today, the church is based in New York and membership numbers are hard to come by.
