Feel free to say whatever you feel. May I just say that I think it should not be. Do not ask me to provide reasons, I am making this to see how people react.

I think it is a religion. It's based on the Satan created by religious doctrine. And in the area where I live there are actually Satanic meetings, rituals, and churches. No one likes them because their rituals are said to be of the nasty variety, but I have no direct knowledge of what it is they do. I do know they call themselves the Satanic Church... so yeah. It's a religion.

LaVey Satanists or anti-Christian Satanists?

Depending on which one depends on the answer.

I believe in the freedom of religion and freedom of speech. If an individual does something that infringes on others' basic, fundamental rights, whether based on religion or not, they should be in jail or prison depending on the crime. This is why I am nota fan of Islam. Islam stands against the Constitution of the United States which defends basic freedoms including religion or lack thereof. The punishments for apostacy(leaving the faith), homosexuality, adultery, etc. are "death". It's unethical, blatantly stands against basic freedoms, and deals out an unreasonable and illegal(In civilized cultures)penalty. If Muslim kills someone, prison, whether religious or not. The same goes for Satanists and even Christians like myself. If Satanists worship without murdering or doing illegal events, there is nothing I can do or say. If they break the law to fulfill religious obligations, it is not okay.

Satanism is self worship. It is a manner of operating that stems from pride.

This is actually something that is widely perpetuated, especially in American culture.
"There are trivial truths and the great truths. The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false. The opposite of a great truth is also true." ~ Niels Bohr

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

I say it should. A religion is basically a collection of beliefs and cultural systems trying to correlate humanity to the universe. Satanism is just another branch of this.

Satanism is exactly like all the other pagan religions like Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

As there is no evidence any god exists, Satanism is just as 'credible' as any of the other religions.

Sure, I dont see any element in satanism that would prevent it from being a religion. Moreover I have a satanist friend that is a pretty cool guy so...
