On the latest episode of his podcast The Devil in the Details, the “Satanic Skeptic” JD Sword examines The Satanic Temple, discussing the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of their trolling strategies as well as pulling the curtain back on the origins and goings on behind-the-scenes of the organization. Sword ultimately makes the case defending the Church of Satan as the only legitimate body defining and defending the religion of Satanism, and hopes that his fellow skeptics who have until now supported TST for their Christian antagonizing, reconsider.

Once again, we mark the anniversary of The Declaration of Independence, that traitorous 1776 statement which lead to the foundation of the United States of America. Those colonials who wanted to shed foreign rule ostensibly intended their territorial union to be a secular republic—a most unusual endeavor in the annals of human history. As a philosophy of individualism and self-determination, Satanism’s fundamental principals endorse “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” as promised fundamental “rights” that should be ensconced in a governmental system serving all participating in that society. Yet, from that auspicious conceptual beginning, not all under the newly-crafted […]
Today we mark yet another anniversary of The Declaration of Independence. Our founders intended this union to be a secular republic—a most unusual endeavor in the annals of human history. The philosophy of Satanism champions freedom, individualism and personal satisfaction, so endorsing the principles of a country that in 1776 promised its citizens “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” as fundamental rights is natural for us. We Satanists have found inspiration from the bold proclamation in the 1797 Treaty of Tripoli that “the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian […]
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.

INDEPENDENCE DAY Today we mark the anniversary of The Declaration of Independence, when we traitorous colonials told the monarch of Britain that the 13 states were united and free of foreign rule. Our founders intended this new union to be a secular republic—a very rare thing! Americans now popularly use this day, or the nearby weekend, as a means to enjoy a summer holiday with convivial gatherings, barbecues, and evening fireworks displays. Commercial enterprises lure folks toward capitalist excess with varied discounts for their wares and services. While we Satanists partake, or refrain, from all of this as we please, […]
