Oklahoma was still in an active state of moral panic regarding The Satanic Temple’s attempts to erect a monument on the state’s capitol grounds when a devout Stillwater, OK Christian man was arrested for hacking the head off an alleged practitioner of “witchcraft.” Both media and law enforcement failed to attribute the crime to the perpetrator’s religious beliefs, even when that connection was made perfectly explicit. The killer was reported to have been “watching Youtube videos related to his Christian… Read more

Just as “the Christmas Spirit” has the liberating effect of nullifying common social standards of humanity and etiquette for those “revelers” who swarm into violent stampeding mobs beginning with the infamous Black Friday post-Thanksgiving Day sales, October is traditionally a time of year in which Halloween frees journalists from any remaining tedious pretenses to credibility as they search out seasonal spooky paranormal claims.

Satanic rituals are acts of creative expression. Consistent with the philosophical principles of self-determination and and anti-authoritarianism espoused by The Satanic Temple, our rituals are not dependent upon prescriptive dogmatic fidelity to rote ceremonies.

The True American Patriots, self-identified as such, see abject hypocrisy in those citizens of the United States who ungratefully criticize the Commander-in-Chief while daily benefiting from all that this great nation offers. Respect the office, if not the man, they say. Love it, or leave it. This attitude can persist with unwavering dedication throughout revelations of corruption, presidential ineptitude, and unlawful conduct, but it only ever applies to one political tribe. Should that another party’s candidate be elected into the… Read more

This is a guest post from David Corpus (Satanist, Arizona). David is a very engineering minded kind of person so (personally) I think this piece lacks a bit of narrative structure, but it does have a lot of good information in it that I hope you find useful. Read more
