Everyone who isn't a real Chrisitian
Atheism, sometimes known as Satanism, is the worship of Satan.
Theistic Satanism, aka Christians who chose the other side, is a form of Satanism where people revere or worship Satan as an deity or force. They actually believe that Satan is a real being, rather than a symbol like in LaVeyan Satanism. Theistic Satanist also tend to believe in magic, rituals and many other ridiculous bullshit which can be found in other theistic religions as well. Usually when people think of Satanism it's theistic Satanism they are thinking of, so for this reason they often confuse theistic Satanism with LaVeyan Satanism, due to ignorance of what LaVeyan Satanism actually is. Theistic Satanist religions are for example: Luciferianism, Palladists, Our Lady of Endor Coven etc.
LaVeyan Satanism is an atheistic philosophy that uses Satan as a metaphor for the hedonistic desires of humans. It was founded by Antwon LaVey, who wrote the Satanic Bible. It is usually perceived as a very evil philosophy, due to the simple mention of Satan, but it is actually just a non-theistic philosophy for assholes. It promotes homosexuality and doesn't have arbitrary rules, like certain religions.
A lot of people, including Marilyn Manson and Jayne Mansfield, identify/identified with LaVeyan Satanism. Mr. Repzion has also gone on record and said he agrees with its teachings more than Christianity.
