I got my first newsletter!



Salem and Arkansas News

The Satanic Temple international Headquarters officially opened in Salem, MA last week without incident amidst a significant amount of press attention and inquiry. Now we can focus on developing an online platform that can provide both live streams and archives of headquarters' (as well as chapter) events with integrated chat and forum applications so that members may interact more directly with TST's community worldwide.

While Baphomet currently stands on display at the Salem Headquarters, TST's spokesperson, Lucien Greaves, has been called to attend a subcommittee hearing on October 12th, in Arkansas, where officials are deliberating on our request to place Baphomet alongside a 10 Commandments monument on Capitol Grounds.

In addition to all of this, school districts are now starting to approve our requests to place After School Satan Clubs in schools where the Fundamentalist Good News Clubs have already established their sick little indoctrination cult.

With these set-up fees, potential legal costs, and the opportunity to expand our ASSC efforts to counter Evangelical indoctrination in public schools, please consider purchasing from our shop to help fund our efforts:

Thank you. Hail Satan.

I know where I'm doing my Christmas shopping this year! I'm especially interested in the lovely Paradise Lost tote bag for my elderly aunt. I think it would be a hit at the farmers market.

When it comes to tote bags, the temple offers several nice options!





You can't go to hell without a handbag - and here are two options...

The Baphomet bag features Eliphas Levi’s image of Baphomet. The image is silkscreened in black ink on a natural color tote.

The Paradise Lost bag features the work of Gustave Dore from Milton's Paradise Lost. This image is a heat transfer on a natural cotton tote.

Natural Cotton Tote, both with black handles.

Product Dimensions: 15"W x 16"H with 23" handles.

Wash inside out cold, line dry.

All proceeds support ongoing Satanic Temple campaigns.

My friends at The Temple seem very suspicious of a Trump Presidency!




Now We Must Stand

While The Satanic Temple is accepting of a wide range of political views, it would be disingenuous and unwise for us to claim no interest in matters related to the establishment of religion and the efforts of theocratically-inclined politicians who threaten our own Free Exercise -- our freedom of, and freedom from, religion. Last night's election results were jarring to many as, in an enormous upset, Donald Trump -- now deeply pledged to the Evangelical Right -- won the Oval Office. Trump has stated a motivation to overturn Roe v Wade and has promised to "protect Christians" who are imagined to be losing power in the United States. We've learned time and again that the Evangelical Right believes that an inability to impose their religion and discriminate against "others" is the basis for this perceived dwindling power. Trump's Vice President, Mike Pence, is a disturbed, superstitious, gynophobic theocratic who would be better suited to a public park milk crate-podium ministry than management of a world power.

This is disturbing.

However, now is not the time for us to hide in fear or lower our voices. To the contrary, now is the time to stand forth and make our presence known. Help us to let the theocrats know that we will fight them every step of the way, and it's not going to be an easy battle. In the coming months we will build a new interactive platform where membership can view events and lectures concerning pressing issues and campaigns -- as presented from our Salem Headquarters and other chapters -- online. Let people know that you support The Satanic Temple, the separation of Church and State, and personal autonomy. We will assemble a list of action items open to volunteer engagement, and we're growing our chapter structure so that you might be able to participate locally with other members around you.

Just today it was announced that another After School Satan Club is opening in Washington to counter the Evangelical Good News Club. We continue to fight Reproductive Rights battles to ensure safe access to timely abortions. We are pursuing legal action in Arizona where the Scottsdale Council saw fit to engage in religious discrimination against us. Oklahoma voted no last night on a state question that was meant to allow for the replacement of a 10 Commandments monument on Capitol Grounds that our efforts helped to previously remove. We are fighting a similar battle against the establishment of religion by the state in Arkansas. Our efforts are making a difference, and with proper legal support, we will continue to win precedent-setting battles nationwide. (Legal fees are prohibitive, so if you have a donation to make, know potential funders, or want to check out some of our merchandise at ShopSatan.com -- the sales proceeds of which help fund our campaigns as well -- your contribution is deeply appreciated.)

We have a long battle ahead, and here is where we will leave our enduring mark on History. Four years from now, nobody will mistake us for irritating "trolls", but recognize us as a cultural force that cannot be ignored. We are the front line, and let's make our legacy one of which to be proud.

It's our honor to have you with us.

Hail Satan!

Something New for Valentine's Day!

Hugs and Kisses for Satan


Valentine's Day
Reproductive Rights Fundraiser


This Valentine’s Day, The Satanic Temple is hosting a fundraising drive, “Hugs and Kisses for Satan,” to support our Reproductive Rights lawsuits against the State of Missouri over mandatory waiting periods and mandatory reading materials which claim that life begins at conception. TST objects to these requirements on religious grounds because they violate our belief in the inviolability of one’s body. (www.religiousreproductiverights.com)

If you would like to participate, simply get sponsors who will contribute for every hug or kiss you receive on Valentine’s Day. Download Pledge and Contact Sheets as well as the XO Card (you can print as many pages as you need). Find people who will sponsor you and fill out their info on the Pledge Sheet. On Valentine’s Day, solicit hugs and kisses using the XO Card and ask the people who hug or kiss you to write their initials on the Contact Sheet.

After Valentine’s Day, collect contributions from your sponsors based on the number of hugs and kisses you received. Contributions and contact sheet should be forwarded to TST either by mail or by PayPal preferably by February 28th. Prizes will be awarded to the person who raises the most money, receives the most hugs, and receives the most kisses.

Please note that TST believes religious organizations should be taxed, so contributions are not tax deductible. Questions regarding the event can be emailed to us at info@thesatanictemple.com.

To download pledge sheets and contact sheets, please go to www.thesatanictemple.com

When I lived in AZ, I was haunted by 7th Day Adventists. After finding me -somehow- this polyester clad creep would show up at my door with 2 scantily clad minors and he'd say, "Son, you're a single father. We have LOTS of eligible young ladies at our congregations."

Okay. Using lust to lure in more sheep. THAT is Satanic.

Hugs and Kisses for Satan!



PROTOCOL

Be polite and respectful at all times. As participant, you are asking another person to hug or kiss you, which is designed to assure that contact is consensual. If a person shows no interest; move on immediately. Persistent requests are a form of harassment. You might want to present a person you approach with a Satanic Valentine’s XO card as means to courteously explain the event.

People who hug or kiss you should provide their initials on the CONTACT SHEET.

Betty White did nudes centuries ago. Jeez. Things weren't as innocent as I believed them to be during my parents' day.

Oh, please....Nancy "Just Say No" Reagan was famous in Hollywood way before she married Ronnie. Not for acting.
