A New York based Devil obsessed cult, known as The Satanic Temple, used funds from a recent PR driven Baphomet statue unveiling in Detroit to fund an effort to undermine legal moves to ban abortion after 20-weeks, as well as other anti-abortion legislation.
Breitbart reports that a Temple spokeswoman told reporters that proceeds from $25 and $75 tickets to the event, billed as the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” will be used to “support the reproductive rights legal action fund.”
The Temple also has an Indiegogo donation page setup which it says serves “to challenge arbitrary, insulting abortion regulations,” The campaign has already raised more than $32,000.
The Temple, supports on-demand abortion, and vehemently opposes all anti-abortion proposals, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which requires the physician to first determine the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child before performing an abortion, and would ban abortions after 20 weeks except in cases where the woman’s life is in danger, or where rape, incest has led to the pregnancy.
The cult, which clearly aligns itself with The Devil, even though they claim not to believe he really exists, has a questionable statement on it’s website suggesting that the reason they support abortion is to do with “personal choice” and “Women’s Rights”.
Not an identification with historical Satanic child sacrifice, or doing the evil bidding of the dark lord then? Have those special interests taken a back seat in this instance?
The cult also opposes ultrasounds because they believe them to be an “attempt to create guilt and discomfort in those seeking abortions.”
The Satanic Temple has recently embroiled itself in a federal lawsuit against the State of Missouri, claiming that the state’s laws restricting abortion violate their “free exercise” of Satanism, and that abortion is “an essential religious duty” for Satanists.
While the Temple says it views Satan purely as “a literary figure, not a deity,” they still identify as a religion, claiming that Satan “stands for rationality, for skepticism, for speaking truth to power.”
Child sacrifice and ritual abuse has been linked to Satanism for hundreds of years. The story of the ancient Ammonite god Moloch, also known as Baal, says that he demanded his followers offer up their own children to be burned as sacrifices.
But obviously, modern day politically correct Satanists can’t say they support that now can they.
