Church of Satan celebrates Religious Freedom Day

Religious Freedom Day 2018 by Magus Peter H. Gilmore

In 1992, the US Congress deemed January 16th as Religious Freedom Day in celebration of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom passed on January 16 of 1786. This act is a significant precursor of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The full text of the act can be read here. Let me extract its final paragraph: “Be it enacted by General Assembly that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or […]

CHURCH OF SATAN CELEBRATES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY  The Church of Satan has openly offered an individualist, atheism-based, carnal alternative to the world’s spiritual doctrines for the past 51 years and we expect to be able to continue welcoming fellow iconoclasts for centuries to come. Many of our members find it relevant to embrace today’s American national holiday, for it stands as a challenge to any one belief system enforcing hegemony over others as well as the bigotry of “one true way” believers.  In the past and present, our adherents have been met with hostility because of their chosen philosophy, hence supporting […]

Religious Freedom Day by Radio Free Satan

radiofreesatan.com On behalf of the hosts of Radio Free Satan, I’d like raise a toast to all those who have stepped forward in society as Satanists and exercised their right to practice the religion of their natural inclination. We also salute those who refrain from any religious practice, especially in environments where pressured to fall in line with a particular persuasion. Hail Satan! – Reverend Raul Antony

Religious Freedom Day by Old Nick Magazine

oldnickmagazine.com Robert Johnson, publisher of Old Nick Magazine & author of “The Satanic Warlock” In celebration of Religious Freedom Day let all free thinkers reflect on these quotes from defenders of sane thought who believe that “religious freedom” also includes NOT believing in religion — Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchins: Dawkins: “We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.” “By all means let’s be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.” “Let children learn about different faiths, let them notice their incompatibility, […]

Religious Freedom Day by Witch Sara Josephine

Those comprising the seemingly all-inclusive vacation package from fearing and hating those they feel to be unlike themselves make for most celebrating Religious Freedom Day. The majority purpose is that of the majority demographic, after all. If able, they’d realize their limitations if encountering The Truly Lone Traveler. The Satanist. And their faith buffet would be seen for what it is. Lacking in The Epicurean Department. If one goes back and reads past presidential proclamations related to this occasion, the repetition and content create want. Want for more. So much more. A “please, let’s just speed up this incredibly overdue […]

Religious Freedom Day by Mekiaya Ross-Shahara

On the 26th Religious Freedom Day as enacted by Congress, let us take a moment to remember that since the inception of this country all people are to be free of forced religion. In today’s environment a reminder that we are not only free to believe or not believe whatever we want, but that the rules of country should not be guided by religion, and “that all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens, or by civil incapacitations tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness” (Virginia Statue for Religious Freedom, 1786). Today is a day to […]

Religious Freedom Day by Laren A Crichton

Freedom of and from religion allows human nature to flourish. Those who have an innate yearning to be led through life can find a religion that fulfils that need, while we who are the champions of our own destinies are free to march to the beat of our own primal drum. Here in Australia, we have something similar in Section 116 of the Constitution of Australia which states – “The Commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall […]
