Will the Real Satanists Please Stand Up?

Here’s the thing about the Satanic Temple: You think Christians don’t like them? Well, other Satanists really don’t like them because they’re misappropriating Satan in order to fight First Amendment cases… which is all well and good for atheists, but where’s the Satan worship, huh?!

That’s the gist of a complaint by other Satanists now that the Satanic Temple has formed a chapter in Detroit and is getting a lot of media attention for other reasons:

Raelian Cult: Hey, We Want Our Literature Distributed in Florida Schools, Too!

I have to believe school board members in Orange County, Florida are rethinking their decision to allow all religious and non-religious groups to distribute their literature to schoolchildren, just so they could appease Bible-thumping Christians.

Harvesting a Future Saint: Catholic Church Fights Over Who Gets to Cut a U.S. Archbishop’s Corpse

Cardinal Timothy Dolan can’t bear to say goodbye to his hero and shining example, the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
