It's official.  The Satanic Temple is now a legitimate church -- with the approval of the American IRS.

 

Reported by The Atheist Republic.

Their dogma is no less false than any other religion, so, yeah, they deserve to be treated as a religion.

 

The mere fact that Satanists do not promote bigotry or prejudice is not sufficient to deny them status as a religion.


Join our religion of love and peace or burn in hell!

The Satanic Temple is moved by political pragmatism instead of theology.

 

The Fundies want a Ten Commandments monument in front of the Court House?  Great.  Equal rights.  Let them choke on a Baphomet statue.  Or keep the space clear of all religion.

 

The Fundies want to distribute Bibles in the Public Schools?  Great.  The Satanic Temple is ready with Satanic coloring books.  

 

This is not religion.  The Satanic Temple has finally found a pragmatic way, to make the Fundies behave themselves.  In the name of religious equality.  No religion in the public space -- or all religions in the public space.  And they're waiting to balance the scales.

 

What are the Atheists going to do?  Put up a monument to science?  The Fundies are too stupid to get it.  Put up a monument to the Flying Spaghetti Monster?  The Fundies know it's a joke.  Satan scares them.  The Satanic Temple makes them mind their manners.
