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 […]

Religious Freedom Day by Warlock Draconis Blackthorne

As a Satanist, religious freedom is important because Satanism as a whole is a religion, a philosophy, and a lifestyle combined—some would even posit another species or breed entirely, but certainly psychologically alternate, which is why sometimes out kind have been referred to as “alien elite.” It is indeed marvelous NOT living in a theocratic environment wherein any particular religion holds absolute sway, even though they do try to interfere and interpolate their various agendas wherever and whenever they can, yet it is now fortunately altogether surmountable by utilizing the sovereign freedoms and intellectual tools provided by the Founding Hellfire […]

Religious Freedom Day by Satanist Jacob Wilson

The First Amendment had set forth a standard to separate the church and state. The reason is out of respect of one another on any manner of belief or disbelief. Just because your religion may work for you, this is not so to all. I think Satanism is just about the only religion so far that acknowledges this because somehow, a religion cannot seem to exist without having followers – or so the world seems to think. It intrigues me how one person to make one’s own religion exist is not enough. I have no problem with other religions. Neither […]

Speak of the Devil presents Religious Freedom Day LIII A.S.

Religious Freedom Day LIII A.S. by Reverend Campbell

On this Religious Freedom Day[1], I would like to remind everyone that—though we live in perhaps the best time in history for safely practicing any religion we choose and are generally free from political condemnation—there are still areas of the world where this basic freedom is denied or actively suppressed. On October 27th 1998, president Bill Clinton signed the International Religious Freedom Act[2] into law. This was passed as an effort to promote religious freedom as a foreign policy of the United States, and to advocate on the behalf of the individuals persecuted in foreign countries due to their religion.

Let Freedom… Ding! by Reverend Les Hernandez

Back in 2002 C.E., I happened to be online doing searches to see how my various projects and websites were doing in web searches. One search I did was for the phrase “Satanism in Hawaii.” I was immediately taken aback by what popped up: an excerpt from the Student Handbook of a local public high school. It listed several things as contraband, such as drug paraphernalia, clothing displaying profanity, and, to my bewilderment, Satanism! At the time, I was employed by Hawaii’s Department of Education, though not at the school this mandatory dress code was published for. Those who know […]

CHURCH OF SATAN CELEBRATES RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DAY We of the Church of Satan have been free to offer an individualist, atheism-based, carnal alternative to the world’s spiritual doctrines for the past 50 years and expect to be able to continue welcoming fellow iconoclasts for centuries to come. Many of our members thus find it relevant to embrace today’s national holiday. There have been many instances in the past where our members have been met with hostility because of their chosen philosophy, hence supporting and celebrating our rights as provided by the U.S. government is a worthy endeavor. Please visit our […]

Religious Freedom Day 2017 - Reverend Campbell

Religious Freedom Day 2017 by Reverend Campbell On this Religious Freedom Day let us recall that our First Amendment to the Constitution of United States of America “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” was informed by Thomas Jefferson’s Virginia Statute on Religious Freedom stating in part “That our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions, any more than our opinions in physics or geometry; that […]

Religious Freedom Day by Matt Quill

When I was on my way to work in Alexandria, Virginia on a sunny September day in 2001, I had never imagined that the plane flying over my car would strike the Pentagon. None of us could have imagined this scenario playing out the way that it did. It was an act of war, clearly; but who? Some bearded man half way across the world claimed responsibility for cutting all those lives short in the name of Al Qaeda, an organization most of us had never heard of at the time but few of us can say we haven’t heard […]
