A group of satanists, who refer to themselves as the “Satanic Temple” are a group of people who are working to “draw attention to the absurdity of the pro-life movement.” Their goal is to crash pro-life protests and rallies in order to bring the attention back to abortion.
Is it really so absurd to not want to murder babies? Have we become so desensitized that unborn lives do not matter any longer? These self identified satanists seem to think so.
Their “mission” according to their website is:
The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will. Politically aware, Civic-minded Satanists and allies in The Satanic Temple have publicly opposed The Westboro Baptist Church, advocated on behalf of children in public school to abolish corporal punishment, applied for equal representation where religious monuments are placed on public property, provided religious exemption and legal protection against laws that unscientifically restrict women’s reproductive autonomy, exposed fraudulent harmful pseudo-scientific practitioners and claims in mental health care, and applied to hold clubs along side other religious after school clubs in schools besieged by proselytizing organizations.
These people are so confused and lost in their ways that they truly believe in their misguided ways. I don’t know whether to feel more sad for them or disgusted by their beliefs.
