The Satanic Temple follows the tenets of LaVeyan Satanism. Among those tenants are:
- One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
- The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forego your own.
- Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
This means under no uncertain terms that telling a Satanist woman that she can’t have an abortion is against her religion, as it violates her freedom, does not conform to our best scientific understanding of the world, and violates the idea that her body is inviolable and subject to her will alone.
What the Temple is saying is that according to their religion, Satanist women do not have to be subjected to state mandated so-called “Informed Consent” materials (really bullying propaganda designed to scare women out of abortions) and that only the woman has the right to decide whether or not she wants an abortion
The website linked above also includes a letter you can print out and hand to your doctor stating that your deeply held religious beliefs mean that your bodily autonomy cannot be violated.
Here’s an article from The Raw Story about it.
It’s pronounced Sa-tine…

Also probably not a good idea to read unless you have prepared yourself for the most BRAIN MELTINGLY STUPID thing to happen in any X-men comic book ever and yes I include the time that an evil female ANTI-POPE wanted to make Kurt Wagner the pope and then convince everyone that he was the anti-christ and mutants were demons using killer communion wafers in that list
PREPARE YOUR BRAIN FOR THE NIGHTMARISH ABSURDITY
Dr. Bones, MD should have his own show!
#is this a scarecrow or a scarepeople
Why not both?
I can imagine walking to this field and a small voice in the brush, “no.. “
You look around, then start to head to the field again, “seriously dude, no.”
You head back into the brush and find a group of crows hiding behind a tree looking really scared, one looks up, “I don’t know what the fuck is out there.. but it can have the field..”
Heed the warning of the cows
Go no further human, this place is not for you O.O
Given that this looks like someone who’s had vines burst out of their mouth and fingerttips, I can see this as the remains of someone who seriously pissed off Poison Ivy or Swamp Thing or Plantman/Blackheath.
