    February 10, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Just weeks into 2021, and abortion is front and center in American politics once again, with more than a dozen pro-life laws surfacing at state legislatures, Biden’s executive orders, and the balance of power tilting once again towards the blood-bloated feticide monopoly Planned Parenthood. And speak of the Devil, the Satanic Temple is at it again as well, this time in Texas. I’ve followed the pro-abortion efforts of the Satanic Temple in the space for a couple of years. Last August, they launched a campaign claiming that “Satanic Abortions Are Protected By Religious Liberty Laws,”...

    Abortion rights activists known as The Satanic Temple (TST) announced Wednesday they have posted billboards in Texas and Florida to promote what they call their “religious abortion ritual.” The Satanic Temple claims its members may undergo “first-trimester abortions upon demand in states that have enacted the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).” Abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood has been working with the Satanic Temple to fight state abortion restrictions. In April 2019, the Satanic Temple also announced the IRS had recognized it as a “church” with tax-exempt status. “As a federally-recognized religion, The Satanic Temple utilizes RFRA and the Hobby Lobby...

    I am a 40-something attorney and mother who lives in a quiet neighborhood with a yard and a garage full of scooters and soccer balls. I often walk with my children to get ice cream and spend weekends hiking through a national park. I am not the type of person who would normally consider becoming a Satanist, but these are not normal times. Like so many other women in the United States, when I learned of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, my first reaction was not grief but fear. I fear that American citizens are inching closer to living in...

    On Monday it was reported that leading Democrat vice-presidential contender to be Joe Biden’s running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, does not follow Biden on Twitter, which prompted the Piñon Post to see if Gov. Michell Lujan Grisham, also a contender for the Democrat vice-presidential nomination follows Biden. Here’s what we found: After searching both Lujan Grisham’s campaign and public Twitter accounts, @Michelle4NM and @GovMLG, respectively, we concluded both by a thorough review of who she is following on Twitter, as well as a check from the website DoesFollow.com, that Lujan Grisham does not follow Biden nor does Biden follow...

    The Satanic Temple (TST) claimed that religious freedom laws ought to exempt them from state abortion restrictions because some of their members regard first-trimester abortion as a religious ritual.As reported by Salt Lake City ABC affiliate KUTV, TST said in a press release that it “bases its assertions of abortion mandate exemptions on the protections provided by State Religious Freedom Restoration Acts or RFRA, which generally prohibits the government from substantially interfering with a person’s free exercise of religion.  According to the announcement on their website, which bears the slogan “Thyself Is Thy Master,” TST claims abortion can be a religious...

    As part of the wave of tearing down symbols of historic racism., Mississippi State Governor Tate Reeves, a Republican, signed legislation last month ordering the “prompt, dignified, and respectful” removal of the state flag bearing the rebel symbol from all state property. Mississippi was the only state whose flag contained the Confederate battle flag, adopting it in 1894, nearly three decades after the Civil War. 64% of voters reaffirmed the flag in a 2001 referendum. In the wake of the race riots sweeping across the country, Reeves decided to introduce the new legislation calling to redesign the flag. “I know...

    A government meeting in Alaska opened with a prayer to Satan after a Satanic Temple member won the right to deliver the invocation, prompting about a dozen officials and attendees to walk out. The invocation was the first given by the Satanic Temple since the Kenai Peninsula Borough — 75 miles south of Anchorage — changed a policy in November after the Alaska Superior Court said that policy violated the state’s constitution’s establishment clause. The new policy allows for anyone in the borough to offer an invocation, no matter their religion. In her invocation, Iris Fontana, who is a member...

    March 8, 2020 at 3:22 pm The Capitol Building in Olympia. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren, File) You can stop reading if you don’t believe evil exists. If you think Satan (the Devil or Beelzebub) is the fever-dream of tooth-fairy believing Christians, misled Muslims or myth believing Jewish people, this will probably not interest you in the least. If you believe in evil, and/or God, and you think evil seeks power, then you will want to read it. Days after Democrats in Olympia shoved teaching masturbation down the throats of little kids, Satanists held a ceremony in Olympia, on the Capitol...

    “Satanic Temple” study group has been approved by top brass at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. But according to the Navy Times, while academy officials had provided the group with a room on campus for “study,” someone announced via e-mail that the group would be holding “satanic services” on campus, a revelation that prompted clarification from academy officials. “A group of Midshipmen with beliefs aligned with those practiced by the Satanic Temple ... requested a space where they could assemble to discuss and share their common beliefs,” Cmdr. Alana Garas, an academy spokeswoman, explained. However, she added, “the...

    egarding the Satanic Temple, A Pink News article on Greaves’s comments to Attitude Magazine reported, “A commitment to Satan is not required to join the Temple, although a commitment to trolling anti-LGBT evangelicals is desirable. The group’s website clarifies that members do not actually ‘believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural.’” In the context of the internet, ‘trolling’ is a phrase used to describe the act of making random unsolicited and/or controversial comments on various internet forums with the intent to provoke a reaction from unsuspecting readers to engage in a fight or argument.

    The Satanic Temple is appealing a lawsuit against the State of Missouri on behalf of a woman who says her rights were violated when she was forced to wait 72 hours for an abortion and was required to read religious material that asserts life begins at conception. It claims the material provided is designed to produce shame over her decision and is contrary to science. According to the organization, the appeal is based on a 1989 decision handed down by the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals "which explicitly states that the life of each human being begins at conception...

The Salem, Massachusetts-based organization provided The Associated Press with a notice it recently received communicating its new tax-exempt status. The letter used a code that classifies it as a “church or a convention or association of churches.” The group is now listed in an IRS database for tax-exempt organizations. An email seeking comment was sent to the IRS.

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...

    Netflix could soon face legal action from the Satanic Temple, a religious group that claims its copyrighted design of the deity Baphomet was used without permission in the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In Sabrina—the streaming service’s recently released, spooky rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch—the statue of a large goat-headed figure appears as Satan in a handful of episodes. A statue of this figure flanked by two children appears as a centerpiece in Sabrina’s school of witchcraft, the Academy of the Unseen Arts. According to Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson of the Satanic Temple, this statue appropriated the religion’s...

    FULL TITLE: Court of Appeals unanimously rejects Satanic Temple member’s challenge to Missouri’s informed consent law A win, at least for now. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that a member of the Satanic Temple could not challenge Missouri’s 72-hour waiting period/informed consent law because she was not pregnant at the time of her lawsuit and therefore lacked standing. The three-judge panel unanimously upheld a federal appeal court’s dismissal. The judges wrote that “although ‘[p]regnancy provides a classic justification for a conclusion of nonmootness,’ the doctrine does not apply here because she did not first establish standing.”...
