"So our Satanism hasn't been an issue for us. But we are still sort of the antithesis of what could be regarded as the norm according to religious dogma. We're blasphemous, and we play rock and roll, which is very blasphemous. We promote disobedience, we promote sex — and we promote laughter, which is highly, highly, highly blasphemous."
