But the Satanists deny that they support harming of children including the performance of sexual intercourse by the kids. Satanists, in fact, have rules that prohibit followers from having sex with children as well as non-human animals.
Satanists who perform sex with children and other non-human animals can lose their membership as Satanists since they campaign that sex should only be done by consenting adults.
Satanists perform their own self-therapy which is done in private. There is a common belief that the group’s self-therapy involves abusive behaviors. The Satanists however deny this since they perform self-therapy that does not include any abusive actions on their end.
