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.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
