Welcome to the UNOFFICIAL sublemmy for The Satanic Temple and Satanists who identify with the Seven Tenets. This is the best place on Lemmy for TST-related news, blogs, questions, memes, art, merch, discussion topics, and more. Enjoy your stay, and Hail Satan! Official website: https://thesatanictemple.com/ # Rules 1. Follow the Seven Tenets of The Satanic Temple. You can find them on TST’s website. 2. No Visual Sexual Content. Decision is up to mods. If unsure ask. Common exceptions will be things like the school system’s idea of “Sex Ed”. If your post contains non-sexual nudity, please mark NSFW. 3. No Proselytizing. Defined here as: To attempt to convert someone to one’s own religious faith. This is a TST sub, but since membership here is not restricted to TST members, we ask only that you respect the choice of other Lemmurs in this regard. 4. No Doxing. Any mention of another user’s inexplicitly-disclosed personal info will result in a ban, severity of which will be determined according to the offense. It is no secret that there are others who would like to see us harmed or harassed; our Lemmy pseudonyms are an important line of defense against this. Do not act against this defense. Rules and description taken from TST’s unofficial subreddit: https://old.reddit.com/r/SatanicTemple_Reddit/

For members and people interested in The Satanic Temple. From their website:

We have publicly confronted hate groups, fought for the abolition of corporal punishment in public schools, applied for equal representation when religious installations are placed on public property, provided religious exemption and legal protection against laws that unscientifically restrict women’s reproductive autonomy, exposed harmful pseudo-scientific practitioners in mental health care, organized clubs alongside other religious after-school clubs in schools besieged by proselytizing organizations, and engaged in other advocacy in accordance with our tenets.

I readed some of the history and the views of The Satanic Temple, in contrast to the Church of Satan (who I imagined as just an inverted christian philosophy with doses (big doses) of nazism, under the mask of an ego-individualism) and now I’m really interested in learning more. I ever thought the satanic pholosophy should be an opposition not to Christ, but to the Catholic/Evangelic Church. So it’s very coherent and sensate - as to confront an entity like christianity that is white supremacist, homophobic, antiscientifical and evil - to be kind, loveful and have compassion and empathy to animals and humans. THIS is the Satanist i’d be interested to be: a kind, loveful and empathy person, that instead of living a half life of deshonest and hypocritical beliefs in prol of a recompense in an imaginary world, to REAL live the material reality, as it is the ultimate gift of nature and the best experience we could have as an organism in the universe (even within its cruelty and sadness). Sorry for the english, it’s not my main language, and i dont write in it very much. But I’d just like to say that this sublemmy has a new subscriber S2

They don’t actually believe in Satan. They’re just using the christian symbolism as a tool to fight christian overreach in religious rights issues.

But as a religion, its much more humane than Christianity.

I wasn’t aware satanism advocated for empathy and compassion towards all creatures. I would love to pick the brain of any members if they are interested.
