aka Howard Stanton Levey
Author of The Satanic Bible, a wacky book mixing LaVey's personal philosophies and life experiences. LaVey rails against the patent absurdity built into modern religions. Then he coughs up a big hunk of fanciful dogma and meaningless ceremonies for his own brand of unspirituality, which he calls Satanism. Complete and utter hypocrite.
Not to mention the fact that LaVey plagiarized Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and other works for his stupid book.
Claimed to have had been fucking Marilyn Monroe in 1948, but that turned out to be bullshit.
