Wiccans are clearly Pagan, and Satanists are also, I believe.

Well, without getting into a huge discussion on terminology. Satanist
are pagans in the most base meaning of the word. Most pagans are
now using the term neopagan to try and differentiate but really the more
accepted definition of a Pagan is one who's spiritual path is Earth centered
and who's members respect the earth and live in harmony with the earths
cycles. The Native Americans were pagans..(as were thousands of cultures
before them) and most modern day pagans try to nourish the earth in much
the same way.
Satanist..if I understand them correctly..don't really consider themselves
"evil" or worship the dark lord but they don't observe the same Karmic
laws as Wiccan's and they don't believe in the spirit being higher than the
material self. Honestly, it is all so intermixed. I read a wonderful book
by
Raven Grimassi just this weekend called the spirit of the Witch. He
describes
a gathering of people forming a circle with a large crystal in the center.
Each
person describes the crystal and of course each person see's the crystal a
little
differently. Some see sharp edges, other see smooth surface,..etc. Each of
them is right and see the "true" crystal but only from their own
perspective. Only
by weaving their experience together can one know the true crystal...and
then
there are still hundreds of perspectives (above and below) that are yet
explored.
I see...(as Raven did) religions as being that way. Each of us see the
truth from
our own perspective. Each of us is right and each of us is wrong. Only the
most stubborn will refuse to accept anothers point of view as being "true"
(if
only from thier perspective). It's a great analogy. I have just read the
book but
I hope that visual sticks with me always.

As negative as they are satanists are considered a Paganistic religion.
