I’ll be the first one to admit that I know very little about the Satanic Temple of New York. I will also admit that I am in no position to know what their true motivations are.
But here’s what I do know, they said they were going to raise money to build a monument for Satanism, and they’re doing it. As far as I can tell, they’re actually using the money that was raised for the monument to build the monument.
Also, they are scheduled to be holding a Black Mass at Harvard University this week, which is more than most satanic groups will ever do.
Only time will tell whether the Satanic Temple is truly motivated by religious convictions or something else, but at least they’re doing something. In my opinion, you have to at least give them a little bit of respect for that.
I truly hope that the members of the Satanic Temple are genuine in their desire to educate the public about Satanism. I’ve seen far too many groups take advantage of their members and misused their money.
That’s why I’m no longer a fan of organized satanic groups. Over the years, I’ve seen them do more harm than good.
