Question by Jimbeaux: Feasibility of starting and selling a church of Satan?
I had an idea to buy an old church house and paint the outside completely black and hang an upside-down cross in the front calling it the Church of Lucifer. The idea is people would be offended and no doubt complain. I would then offer to sell the building at a much higher cost than I bought it and they would be willing to pay for the sake of getting rid of it. What do you think?
Answer by Julien M Hahaha well it sounds entertaining enough 🙂
When it comes to money though, people will most likely stage protests and complain to some authority before buying it off you.
Also, check the laws pertaining to satanism. It’s quite illegal in a lot of places.
