Varg actually hates satanism, because satanism is a part of christian mythology. - Merkwurdigliebe

Even though it's not satanic, Varg is still a psychopath.

Varg is commonly called a Satanist but he's not. He's a pagan who hates Christianity. Look up his YouTube if you really wanna learn about him. @ThuleanPerspective - ryanrimmel
