Satanic Temple: religious freedom laws guard members from restrictions on “Satanic abortion ritual”


Discern: Claiming that ending the life of a first trimester unborn baby is a religious right for their members, the Satanic Temple has issued a press release demanding that religious freedom protections exempt them from all state restrictions on abortion.

“[T]he Satanic abortion ritual provides spiritual comfort and affirms bodily autonomy, self-worth, and freedom from coercive forces with the affirmation of TST’s Seven Tenets.”

The ritual is practiced when the individual stares at themselves in a mirror during the moments immediately preceding an abortion, and recites one of the Satanic Temple’s “tenets” that a person’s body is “subject to one’s own will alone,” that “beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world,” and that a person should never “distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.”

Specifically, the Satanic Temple claims exemptions from all state mandated waiting periods, counseling, reading materials, sonograms, burial or cremation of fetal remains, and any requirement to listen to an unborn baby’s heartbeat. Read More …

Opinion: So who is this Satan that these people worship?

Satan’s 5 “I wills”:

How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! 13 For you have said in your heart:

I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’ Isaiah 14:12-14

  1. Satan’s pride does not allow him to be satisfied with the high position God had given him.
  2. Stars are symbolic for angels. Satan desires sole authority over all the angels God has created.
  3. To sit on the Mount of the Congregation refers to Satan’s desire to rule over the Jewish people during the Millennial Kingdom
  4. Clouds are symbolic for glory. Satan’s desire is to possess God’s Shekinah glory.
  5. Satan desires to possess the heavens and the earth.

That Satan’s worshipers desire state laws to be “subject to one’s own will alone” is the daily argument of the pro-choice left. Staring into a mirror before taking a child’s life is the ultimate power over life and death, and is in keeping with the god they worship.

For that there is a bottomless pit.

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.” Revelation 20:1-3
