The Satanic Society is a small Satanic organization in the tradition of Anton LaVey and one of a number of groups that emerged out of the Church of Satan that he founded. The Satanic Society was founded in the early 1990s by its High Priestess Jessica as the Society of Sin, and took its present name toward the end of the decade. Jessica was raised in a Christian home from which she rebelled and was led to Satanism through reading the writing of LaVey and others and through guidance from several older Satanists who served as her mentors. Since the death of LaVey, she considers herself no longer a supporter of the Church of Satan, but recommends both the First Church of Satan and the First Satanic Church.
Membership in the Satanic Society follows application and screening. Members must demonstrate their possession of a set of traits and abilities, including a sense of personal responsibility, a goal-centered approach to the future, the ability to organize and manage their life, the ability to listen and work with a team, and the ability to reform and revive the self. Prospective members must complete a lengthy membership application. The Satanic Society accepts the Nine Satanic Statements originally articulated by LaVey and promotes both magic and selfaggrandizement. It is opposed to illegal acts and abusive behavior.
