This is, to put it mildly, an unwarranted and irresponsible
accusation, I'm shocked to see it here.

LaVey, from all accounts a great character and an urbane,
sophisticated man, knew a great many people.  My late friend the
sociologist of science Marcello Truzzi considered him a good
friend.  (No, Marcello was not a Satanist.  As an agnostic, he
did not even accept the existence of the devil.)  Moreover,
LaVey's variety of Satanism focused on a material view of life
and an enjoyment of its pleasures  It was not about the sort of
lurid nonsense of cheezy horror movies and paperback thrillers.
