Let's hear it for the Satanic Temple!

The Satanic Temple has put in the paperwork to erect a monument next to the 10 Commandments at the OK statehouse based on the 2009 ruling that okayed religious displays on public land. Evidently, they also have messed with Fred Phelps in the past.

This I'm okay with. I have been saying for years that groups that fight for all this prayer in school, teaching creationism in science class, or religious-based monuments on public land don't really seem to realize is that allowing THEIR prayer/creationism/monuments will also wind up including the prayers/creationism/monuments of OTHER religions, including ones they probably don't agree with.

But as for their messing with Fred Phelps, I think this is the group that did the "pink mass" over his mother's grave, and I really can't get on board with that so much.

I hate the patriarchal conservative christianity as much as most of you but I find it dangerous to react to to the patriarchal fundie crazy by appreciating satanism.

Don't forget that Satan is a symbol of all evil to many religious people and in the internet you can find a lot resources that claim that there are satanists in the world that are participate in cruel rituals which not seldom involve the sacrifice of a human being.

I know that a lot of people are conditionend to laugh these rumours off but some resources about it seem pretty plausible.

I tend to agree with you, nataraja. While most satanist tend to be harmless, there are sects out there that are hardcore. Having said that, I have no problem with other religions as long as nobody is being harmed.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
