Who among us would think that Satanists will rally for Governor Rick Scott on Friday, January 25 at 1pm? Weird but true as members of the Satanic Temple will gather on the steps of the Florida Governer′s Office to show their support for Scott, who signed Senate Bill 98, or SB 98, which allows for students to give inspirational messages at school assemblies. Not sure how many Satanic children will participate in this, but Lucien Greaves of the Satanic Temple seem pleased none the less. So is this a case of blind optimism or just sauce for the gander?
The bottom line apparently is that any religious freedom is better than none. While the new law does not specifically allow prayer as such, there is no doubt that these inspirational messages could be just that. Thus, while this new law could be seen as generally benefiting Christians, it does not limit such messages to any particular faith.
I′ve looked into this Satanic Temple and frankly they are not true Satanists, in my opinion. Based on their tenets and beliefs, found at their website, I would call them Luciferians. The difference being that true Satanists embrace Satan as evil whereas Luciferians see Satan as a good guy. He may be a ′Fallen Angel′ but he means well and has our best interests at heart. Much like Anton Levay′s Church of Satan was essentially a club where people could live out their Addams Family, fantasy lifestyle.
So here′s to success and nice weather for the Satanists rally for Governor Rick Scott in Florida. About 100 members of the Satanic Temple will gather at the Governor′s Office in Tallahassee on Friday, January 25 at 1pm, according to Lucien Greaves. The rally is to show their support of Gov. Scott signing into law Senate Bill 98, SB 98, which allows students to give inspirational messages at school assemblies. The law is broad ranging, allowing for even Satanic children to participate. How nice is that?
