    Everything you know about Satanism is wrong.At least that's what a new documentary about the Satanic Temple could be about to prove.Despite the similarity of the name, the Temple is different to The Church of Satan, established in 1966 by chat show circuit celebrity Anton Levey in San Francisco, California.Human sacrifice? Wrong. Blood drinking? Wrong. Black Mass? Well, sort of right.The Temple was founded in 2013 with a mission statement "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by...

On Thursday, the Satanic Temple announced on Instagram that “for the very [first] time in history, a satanic organization has been recognized by the United States federal government as being a church.” The IRS website confirms that the Satanic Temple is now a tax-exempt organization “eligible to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions,” but gives no further details...

    You could say Satanism has undergone a “rebranding” since the 1980s and 90s, when devil-worshipping occultists were supposedly to blame for a series of disturbing crimes – both real and imagined. Since then, in large part due to the founding of “The Satanic Temple” seven years ago in Salem, Massachusetts, Satanism has entered the mainstream of contemporary culture. The clever marketers of this movement have traded notions of goat sacrifices and Black Magic for feel-good sophistry about equality, social justice, and personal freedom. In fact, in a bizarre non sequitur The Satanic Temple claims its mission is not to worship...

    An “interesting cast of characters” from “what some may consider fringe religions” – including the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Satanic Temple – are scheduled to speak before local government meetings in Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula this year, an assemblyman says. The diverse lineup is the latest twist in a long-running dispute in the area over whom is allowed to say invocations before its assembly meetings. “It’s still somewhat a controversial issue and it’s going to be interesting to see how people react to what some may consider fringe religions — the Wiccan, atheist, Flying Spaghetti Monster, the...

    How do you know your church is approved by God? One way is to see it attacked by Satanists on Christmas Eve. My church in San Antonio is a small one, less than 150 members in a quiet non-descript building in a middle-class section of town compared to the many larger churches with massive facilities. I dare say some of you probably live in houses bigger than this church. But we are a church with solid roots in the gospel of Jesus Christ and we've been praying earnestly for God's presence and direction in our lives and growth among our...

    A Democratic candidate in West Virginia was an active leader in pagan witchcraft for years and instructed others. Lissa Lucas wrote two books on occult practices, including a how-to book for casting spells. Lucas... doesn’t think voters will care about her ‘spirituality’ because they’re not ‘religious bigots.’ A Democratic candidate for the West Virginia House of Delegates was an active leader in pagan witchcraft, Lucas’s campaign has raised more than five times as much money as her Republican opponent, thanks in part to national media attention that has left out Lucas’s witchcraft. She authored two books on casting pagan spells,...

    Vampires, it seems, have gone mainstream. According to The New York Post, “drinking young people’s blood could help you live longer and prevent age-related diseases.” (It could also cause you to develop sensitivity to light, sleep in some unusual places, and morph into a small flying rodent, but beggars can’t be choosers.) Actually, though, the Post’s claim is somewhat misleading. Patients don’t really have to drink the blood, they can receive it via transfusion. Technology has advanced, it seems, even for vampires. Jesse Karamazin, the California "doctor" behind this anti-aging regimen, doesn’t actually have a license to practice medicine, but...

    LITTLE ROCK (KATV) — Dozens attended a rally held by the Satanic Temple at the Arkansas State Capitol on Thursday. The rally comes after the Arkansas legislature approved the placement of a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. During the Satanic Temple's Rally for the First Amendment, a more than 8-feet-tall Baphomet statue was unveiled. Those against the rally also attended, telling KATV they had hoped to spread God's love. Following the installation of the Ten Commandments monument, the Satanic Temple filed a lawsuit to have its statue placed on the same grounds in the name of religious pluralism...

    Three siblings in northern Peru allegedly gouged out their mother’s eyes, disemboweled her and bathed in her blood as a sacrifice to Satan in return for healing. Police found the body of 75-year-old Teodora Quispe Ccayllahua in her home in the mountain village of Andabamba, sans her head and intestines. They later arrested Ccayllahua’s three daughters, Aurelia Quispe, 38, Percy Quispe, 41 and Marcelina Suane, 46, the youngest of whom declared they had been ordered to kill their mother by “the master of darkness.”

    A former Satanist has attested to the power of Christian prayers, saying he was prevented from carrying out his evil plans when he encountered a group of intercessors during one of his missions. John Ramirez says that he was raised in a family that was heavily into witchcraft and he had even been referred to by some friends as 'Lucifer's son' because of his participation in satanic rituals that involved animal sacrifice. After becoming a high priest in a religion called Palo Mayombe, Ramirez soon met a girl who invited her to church and introduced him to her Christian parents....

    The California Assembly passed legislation today broad enough to ban the sale of books that address helping people overcome unwanted same-sex attractions. AB 2943 cleared the chamber by a “bipartisan” vote of 50-14, CBS Sacramento reports. The measure adds “[a]dvertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” to the state’s list of illegal “unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices undertaken by any person in a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer.” “Sexual orientation change efforts”...

Oh goodness gracious. We can be civil, cheerful, respectful to & friends with people who don’t share our religious beliefs. Sometimes, we even marry them. I’m a Methodist & my husband is...

    BOCA RATON, Fla. (ChurchMilitant.com) - Catholics celebrate after a satanic display fails to go up near a public nativity scene in Florida. In November, nearly 50,000 people signed a petition started by Return to Order — an organization associated with the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) — asking the city of Boca Raton to shut down a satanic display in Sanborn Square. The satanic display, consisting of an upside-down pentagram with the words "In Satan we trust" and "May the children hail Satan," has been erected for the last two years by Preston Smith,...

    Abortion activists are thanking Satanists this week for making it easier for Missouri women to abort their unborn babies. Together, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood and The Satanic Temple have been fighting viciously to promote abortions and block efforts to protect unborn babies and moms in Missouri. “Abortion access in Missouri is getting easier thanks to Planned Parenthood and Satanists,” a headline at the liberal news site Slate said Tuesday. Breitbart reports the Satanists and the largest baby killing business in the country managed to gain a few victories in the state through their joint efforts this year. For the...

    WASHINGTON – The venerated journalistic institution the Washington Post, which recently adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” published a column Wednesday by a spokesman for the “Prince of Darkness” who blamed Christianity for slavery and white supremacism. The op-ed by Lucien Greaves, both a defense of satanism and an attack on Christianity, was headlined “I’m a founder of the Satanic Temple. Don’t blame Satan for white supremacy.” Although slavery was historically practiced by virtually every culture in the world and only stopped by Christians, Greaves revives the argument that blames it on Christians. In the op-ed, the self-described co-founder of the Satanic...
