I would say it takes quite alot of confidence and knowledge in order to make such bold claims despite having 99.99% of the world disagreeing with your sole purpose, so the respect comes from free speech, but something i don't understand is whether your preaching or "anti" preaching against christianity is your life not still being controlled by it?


i remember from a swedish documentary that most of the bands aren't necessarily satanic, just anti-christian because of the way the religion was forced upon their early people groups. Many black metal groups believe nordic mythology and many of them aren't anti-christian or satanic. They just love their culture and their traditional beliefs in the mythology of their homeland.
