Harvard is sponsoring a Black Mass using a consecrated Host.

Demonstrating once again the back-handed compliment that the devil always pays to Jesus Christ, the blasphemy is directed, not toward Zeus, Quetzelcoatl or Mars, but toward the one true God. In turn, blasphemy always destroys, not God, who cannot be harmed, but the blasphemer, who makes himself utterly small when God desires to exalt him and give him joy.

So tragic. Pray for the poor souls who are opening themselves to very dark things with this act. Also, pray for Harvard, which would never think of allowing acts of blasphemy targeting Jews or Muslims, but which casually embraces the Last Acceptable Prejudice.

UPDATE: Lizzie now reports they will not be desecrating the Eucharist. Thanks be to God.

UPPERDATE: The Satanic Temple definitively shows itself to be, not bold iconoclasts spitting bravely at the Christian God, but pantywaist passive aggressives. I mean, come on, “I am writing on behalf of The Satanic Temple to relay that there will NOT be a consecrated host at the Black Mass. This was a miscommunication on our part and want to let you know that we respect all religions and don’t want anyone to feel offended.”

How in hell do you “miscommunicate” that you intend to desecrate a Eucharist?

They remind me of this sketch:

And fellas, if you want to be taken seriously in that whole “respect all religions” thing, you might call your act of blasphemy something besides a “Mass”.

There’s something unique to our time about people who engage in obvious hatred of Catholics while wanting very much for people to like them and not feel offended. Man up, people! If you are going to spit in the eyes of God and your Catholic neighbor at *least* have the stones to not make mewling pleas to be liked for it. Embrace the Inner Jerk! Jesus would rather you be hot or cold than lukewarm. He can make a St. Paul out of a hearty blasphemer. But this sort of tapioca PC God hatred is just spewable.

    The irony of this response is other-worldly.

    Complaining that they’re not using a real Eucharist really gets to the heart of the matter, eh?

  • Deanjay1961

    Something you should know about Satanists: they don’t believe in the Real Presence either. Organized Satanists are basically atheists who regard all the Satanic stuff as metaphorical, and the ceremonies of having social or psychological benefits, not supernatural ones.

  • Deanjay1961

    So they SHOULD use a real Eucharist, that would make you happier?

  • Deanjay1961

    ‘The kind of ‘Satanist’ that really believes is rare enough to deserve a separate label. ‘Devil-worshiper’ maybe?

    Can you give an example of someone being arrested outside of a theocracy for mocking Jewish or Muslim rituals? It’s not illegal, it’s free speech. Satanic grafitti on a church: a hate crime. Mocking ritual open to the public: not a hate crime. Harvard doesn’t have to host it, though.
    Opening a portal to Satan and the occult would be awesome, and there’s probably no other outcome that would generate as many conversions to Catholicism unless an angel showed up to kick Lucy’s ass.
