(Tea Party PAC) – Satanism has taken on a new form in Trump’s America.
They accept any belief system as long as you hate Trump, Christians, and conservatives.
Which just so happens to be the Democratic’ party platform in a nutshell. What’s the difference, anyway?
The Satanic Temple was founded in 2013, and has always been based entirely on hating anyone on the political or cultural right. In fact, nationally syndicated author Michael Snyder notes, the only real requirement to join the Satanic Temple is to believe “in the political and secular actions” of the group.
“If there’s a local chapter where you are, to join you do have to be accepted, but there’s no initiation or anything. You don’t even have to be a Satanist, you can just be a strong ally who believes in the political and secular actions without being super stoked about all the aesthetic aspects.”
In the past, Satanism in the US has always been a fringe, underground movement, but the Satanic Temple has made it all mainstream.
Rather than avoiding public scrutiny, the Satanic Temple believes their fight against Christian morality “requires a level of political participation:”
From the Daily Mail:
“Traditionally, Satanists practice very privately, closed doors, black candles, black metal music, but with the Satanic philosophy being where Satanism represents rebellion against arbitrary authority, we believe it requires a level of political participation. I think that we need to go into the public sphere and announce ourselves without shame.”
The group quickly grew after its founding, but since Trump was elected, it has exploded.
“The Satanic Temple attracted ‘thousands’ of new members in just the first 36 hours after the election of Donald Trump,” the group reported. “The 4-year-old temple, which had a pre-Trump membership of around 50,000, has never before seen a spike in registration nearly this big.”
“We’re definitely a resistance movement,”spokesperson and co-founder Lucien Greaves said after a speech outside the University of Colorado Boulder. “We stand in stark opposition to this idea that we must unify under a single religious banner.”
Now, thanks to a friendly new documentary about the group, it’s getting some great new PR from a favorable left who thinks, because they supposedly fight Trump, Satansim is a-OK.
This comes comes from a Huffington Post article entitled “Satan Is Having A Moment:”
Satanists, it turns out, are everything you think they’re not: patriotic, charitable, ethical, equality-minded, dedicated to picking up litter with pitchforks on an Arizona highway.
That much is clear in the fantastic new documentary “Hail Satan?” — which chronicles the rise of the Satanic Temple, a movement that has little to do with its titular demon. Founded in 2013, the organization is equal parts modern-day religion, political activist coalition and meta cultural revolution. By reclaiming the pop iconography that has long frightened evangelical America ― devil worship, ritualistic sacrifice, horns, pentagrams, the so-called Black Mass ― the Satanic Temple aims to catch people’s attention and then surprise them with messages of free speech, compassion, liberty and justice for all.
Leave it to HuffPo to publish glowing puff pieces about the Satanic Temple.
The left is clearly trying to paint the group as a well-intentioned civic organization that just wants to fight for social justice or whatever, but in reality, they absolutely loathe everything Christian.
Check out what one of their leaders recently said about famously faithful Vice President Mike Pence:
“[President Trump] is too stupid to predict; the guy has no concept of his own limitations. The thing that makes me most comfortable with Trump is the fact that he has no vision. Mike Pence really scares me,” Lucien Greaves told The Daily Beast in an interview published on Wednesday. “Pence has a clear, theocratic vision for the United States.”
In spite of the fact that they claim that they “don’t worship Satan,” the group still does a lot of Satanic things, like celebrate the black pass, conduct Pentagram rituals, and try to get Baphomet statues erected on public land.
The people who hate Trump, whether they claim to be Satanic or not, are not only on the wrong side of history, but morality.
The Satanic Temple rightly represents everything they stand for: lawlessness, selfishness, and pure evil.
