Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t the ruling unanimous?

It’s not like SCOTUS is giving Christians special treatment that the Satanic Temple wouldn’t get.

As a Christian, I appreciate what these people do. They’ve established a religion so controversial that it’s borders on parody, but claim legitimacy in every way they can.

This can be used to test government decisions and willpower. Is this new law *really* about religious freedom? Or does it only seem like a good idea when churches you *like* do it?

It calls out a lot of bullshit and tbh no other church is really in the position to do so

The Temple is pretty dope, if they’re the ones I’m thinking of. They consider abortions to be a sacrament which as far as I can tell is just a loophole to get people abortions in states where they’re illegal

Just purchased my membership card/certificate yesterday and will continue to donate monthly. It’s time those of us with any semblance of rationality, compassion, and common sense throw our entire collective weight behind TST and any group that serves as counterbalance to the insanity of the religious right.

They want a theocracy? Too bad. We will bury them in litigation until their last breaths.

Just joined and donated this morning. Weird that it’s the one of the only beacons of hope these days.

Ngl, if I were in Boston, I’d just want them to ban all flags. Separate church and state, just have nothing but the state and country flag so there are no preferences.

I’ve been a card-carrying TST member for a couple years now and I am ALWAYS proud when I see TST in the news.

Here are the 7 fundamental tenets. If these appeal to you, consider becoming a member and supporting TST’s efforts:

I – One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.

II – The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.

III – One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.

IV – The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.

V – Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.

VI – People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one’s best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.

VII – Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

I want to see Islamic flags, LBGT Flags, McDonald’s Flags, Chinese Flags, ect.

Everyone gets a flag in Boston! Make the flag scene so ridiculous it drowns out whatever agenda anyone is trying to push!

If the Christians are free to fly their flag, the Satanic Temple must be allowed to fly theirs–as well as any other religious or Aetheist community. The Christian flag needs to be immediately made small in a pack of other flags.

Just donated to these guys for the first time. My favorite line from their welcome email was…

“Are we supposed to concede that only the superstitious are rightful recipients of religious exemption and privilege?”

What was that whole thing about church and state again? /s

Can’t think of any reason a government building should be flying a flag from any religion. Put it outside your church you jackasses.

Separation of church and state… When it’s convenient .

This is why the church of Satan is awesome
