Each and every time I see Bob post, I'm reminded of the sinister Aleister because they share the same name. I would have never dreamed to actually ask him about it fror various reasons. But to get back to OP, I did hear about that story (on Youtube incidentally) but I don't give it much creedence. It's like a lot of stuff, quotes that are attributed to saints which turn out often to be myths. I think it's a made up story, but the irony of him dying in a Catholic hospital did not escape me, though. That man Lavey fabricated everything about his persona, nearly everything he ever claimed has been proven false. From different accounts he was a cruel, dark, heartless man. If you've been living like the Devil for 60 some years, a last-minute change of heart with perfect contrition is unlikely, sadly. I knew some of his children were into some form or other of occultism, I didn't know one was Christian. So, in essence, I doubt that what you heard happened did happen and I doubt he got saved, although I, like God, desire that all men get saved. If he did get saved, he has to be in the lowest, darkest pit of Purgatory that is separated from Hell by an extremely thin veil. If you have time to spare pray for the people that he's mislead, his children etc. If he's in Purgatory he deserves every second there, if not, prayer can do nothing for him anyway.
Er... one of the moderators appears to be Augusta Crowley, but I'm no relation to her either that I know about. Her name often appears in the "Ask an Apologist" section, answering questions people might have.
I'm inclined to agree with you on Anton Lavey. There's a difference between being terrified because you can see Hell closing in, and being contrite because of your sins. Personally I think it was the former, but we'll only know for sure when we've gotten through our own judgment.
The rich man in Hell was in torment, but he wasn't contrite. Even then, his only concern was for his own brothers, and nobody else.
