I think it sucks that satanism is by most people defined as worshipping the devil.

While it fundamentally is worshipping yourself. Or mankind for that matter.

satanism is definitely quite demonized hehe
and while its certainly not as bad as it seems, i still dont think self worship is a great way to live your life...

Then why call it Satanism? Why not call it ********************* or something similar?

For the reasons below, while also to advertise opposition to Christianity, and piss off bible thumpers.

Because Christianity equates Satan ("the enemy") with the desires of the body, so satanism accepts that label and chooses to worship everything that Christianity considers a sin as a humanist philosophy. Lust leads to physical and emotional fulfillment, Envy and Greed cause you to take for yourself and improve your condition, Wrath lets you deal with obstacles, Sloth and Gluttony are both fulfilling and are signs that you are accomplished enough to afford them as luxuries. Pride regulates the other sins so you don't commit them to excess.
