Nothing Is Wrong with Satanism, You Bigot

The Willow Rosenberg Memorial Satanic Temple

We've gone full circle now.

First, Christianity was the main spiritual force of the West, so much so that the latter was known as Christendom.

Then, atheism prevailed, followed by paganism, and now it looks like Satanism is being recognised as a legitimate... what? Religion? Faith? Spiritual orientation, which anyone is entitled to practice as much as a sexual one?

And why not? After all, why should we discriminate? Discrimination is the last, or one of the last, remaining sins. And this applies to every sense of the word, good as well as bad, as in "taste discrimination" to indicate refinement, or in "discrimination between right and wrong". The only exception is reverse discrimination, which is always a virtue because it is meant to fight discrimination - if it sounds absurd it's because it is.

Satan worshipers want 7-foot-tall statue of devil put at Oklahoma state Capitol, headlines the UK's Daily Mail:

This satanic group claimed that, if the Ten Commandments could have a monument, so should their idol figure. Thinking otherwise would be discrimination. Now, tell me: how can anybody these days object to such an argument?

It's the same line of reasoning that led to the passing of homomarriage laws in various countries: if people of different sex can get married, why discriminate against same-sex couples?

And, if the West is now post-Christian, why should we give Christianity a special place, especially after the influx of so many cultural enrichers who adhere to different religions, sometimes having a moral code directly opposite to our own - Islam springs to mind -, which is derived from Christianity but people have forgotten where it comes from and think it arose from nothing, the same as the universe, life and cosnciousness? We are used, by now, to the idea that something comes from nothing: that this is so counter-evidential, that nobody has ever experienced, witnessed this type of occurrence doesn't trouble our "scientific-minded" atheists half as much as the idea of a creator of all that exists.

'The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.'

The Satanic Temple maintains that the Oklahoma Legislature's decision to authorize a privately funded Ten Commandments monument at the Capitol opened the door for its statue.

The Ten Commandments monument was placed on the north steps of the building in 2012, and the Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has sued to have it removed.

Perhaps we should have Nelson removed from his column in Trafalgar Square, and demand in his place a statue of Hitler, Stalin or Britain's own serial killer John Christie.

Why the Satanist statue should be allowed, or even considered as it seems to be, but not Hitler's, I doubt that anyone can provide good reasons for, that can be accepted outside of psychiatric hospitals of course.

On its website, the Satanic Temple explains that it 'seeks to separate Religion from Superstition by acknowledging religious belief as a metaphorical framework with which we construct a narrative context for our goals and works.

'Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness,' the website says.

Exactly. Call a nurse, please.

Oddly, to make that statement about revolt, they have to use the scriptural accounts...and adhere to them fairly strictly.

‘Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness,’

Bull carp, satanism is the practice of going against God’s law and going towards man’s law....

Satan himself shares much with the “stongmen” of history that promise everything and can only deliver a small amount of what they promised on much of the huge piles of their political enemies....

Quite true. The Church created the idea of Satanism in the middle ages to equate it with paganism, and brand wiccans as worshipping Satan. It’s the evil twin of Christianity.

Satan won’t be standing for long. The angels shall chain him in a bottomless pit, then he is let loose for a season.

Then gone forever.

The Lord rebuke him.

When I was in the army there was a satanist in the barracks. He was lured in by the drugs and sex. They worked over his brain with drugs, sex and psuedo-religious psycho babel until he was easily convince to do about anything. It wasn’t long and the sex turned to include bisexual and homosexual sex. By the time I transferred to my next post he was convinced he could turn his enemies into toads via his satanic powers.

I looked up some info on these guys. They are complete dork nerds that are just trying to get famous with this stunt. Their “worship” is completely fabricated and disingenous.just to fet onations from suckers. Nothing like Christians who adopt a completely different lifestyle and live to serve others.

Instead of the Capitol, why do they not put up a statue at the Chesapeake Energy Arena? It was done in Edmonchuck for Gretzky, but I did not think that Šatan ever played for the Oklahoma City Blazers. In fact, I would see it more likely to be built in Pittsburg, Bahston or New Yawk, rather than OK City.
