    Last month, New Mexico’s pro-abortion Governor Lujan-Grisham’s taxpayer funded abortion hotline was caught referring women to The Satanic Temple Health (TST Health) abortion clinic. New Mexico Alliance for Life released its findings through public records that the hotline is sending women to what is advertised as “the world’s first religious abortion clinic.” The pro-life groups released new records to LifeNews today confirming Lujan-Grisham’s taxpayer funded abortion hotline continues referring women to the Satanic abortion business. “This week, New Mexico Alliance for Life obtained additional documents from an open records request from the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH), further confirming...

    The Satanic Temple has placed at least one pro-abortion billboard in Arkansas. The billboard comes as the group has dropped its lawsuit against Lamar Advertising Company over a set of pro-abortion billboards the company rejected in 2020. In 2020 the Satanic Temple proposed four billboard designs that falsely claimed The Satanic Temple’s “religious abortion ritual averts many state restrictions” on abortion and that “abortions save lives.” The group reportedly wanted Lamar Advertising Company to place the billboards near pregnancy resource centers in Arkansas. Lamar Advertising Company understandably rejected the billboard designs for being “misleading and offensive.” The Satanic Temple sued...

    A conflict between The Satanic Temple and musician and Christian activist Sean Feucht is poised to escalate as the Temple prepares to host its first Let Us Burn concert in the Indiana State Capitol on Sept. 28 at noon. The concert is meant to offer an alternative to Feucht’s Christian-themed Let Us Worship concerts being held at or around state capitols. Shortly after announcing the Let Us Burn concert, the Temple received a cease-and-desist letter from Feucht’s lawyers demanding it stop using the tour logo in promoting the event, citing trademark infringement. “Your use of the “Let Us Burn” and...

    (RNS) — Like many Republican presidential candidates, Vivek Ramaswamy has been outspoken about the role of faith and society. An enthusiastic second-generation Indian American, Ramaswamy also isn’t shy about talking about his own faith. “I’m a person of faith. Evangelical Christians across the state are also people of faith,” he said in a July interview with NBC News. “We found commonality in our need to defend religious liberty, to stand for faith and patriotism and stand unapologetically for the fact that we are one nation under God.” To reach evangelical Christians, the largest religious group skewing Republican, Ramaswamy has affirmed...

    (Catholic World Report) — The people of Salem were told they could save their souls and lives by confessing to be a witch. Today, teenage girls are told they will feel much better about themselves once their breasts are removed. And so-called adults call it “affirmative care.” For the last couple of years, J.K. Rowling has been the victim of a witch hunt. The author of the Harry Potter series has been harassed, hounded, shouted down, and targeted with numerous death threats. Rowling is not being hunted down by church folks with pitchforks. Instead, the woman who did more to...

    Furious Christian groups are attempting to shut down the 'largest Satanic gathering in history' after hundreds of The Satanic Temple's members descended on Boston. The annual SatanCon festival arrived in town on Friday to celebrate the organization's 10-year anniversary, kicking off with a bizarre opening ceremony that saw speakers tear up the bible and perform 'un-baptisms'. But the arrival of the Devil worshippers on the East Coast has sparked backlash from religious groups, with crowds gathering Saturday to stage a series of demonstrations across the city and combat the hellish three-day event with 'intense prayer'. It comes after Dr Jaymz...

    An Oregon woman has sued an influential Buddhist monk and trusted mentor over a litany of alleged sexual offenses including rape and pressuring her to keep an unwanted pregnancy. Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, who also goes by Choying Rabjam, also allegedly asked her to sit in his lap and 'suck his tongue like a lollipop,' echoing accusations against the Dalai Lama earlier this week. Rachel Montgomery, now 30, has filed a lawsuit accusing him of sexual battery and sex trafficking in 2011, when she was just 19 years old.

One of the only prominent American voices reacting with the appropriate degree of disgust to a horrifying video of the Dalai Lama appearing to abuse a young boy is rapper Cardi B. If you haven't seen the viral footage of the Dalai Lama's February event in northern India – you should. It's shocking and the world cannot look away. The video shows the 87-year-old spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, considered by his followers to be the living embodiment of the virtues of the religion and the reincarnation of the living Buddha, kissing a...

    We are in the midst of transitioning from an objectively true, historically consistent, analogue world and into a world that is subjectively purposed, revolutionary, and digital in construct. In fact, more so than ever before, we are in a period of time where the “what is” is being demonized and the wizard’s trick of “what it should be” is being lauded as a preferred pathway to the real. A hyperreal world of dreams, visions, technology and digital realization is in many ways attempting to take the place of what mankind has always called “reality.”
