Celebrating Rebellion Against Rationality

Satan worshipers drown women with milk in Planned Parenthood counter-protest

"Satan worshipers launched a counter-protest against pro-lifers outside the Detriot and Ferndale, Michigan Planned Parenthood locations Saturday.

Clad in black robes, members of the Satanic Temple of Detriot drenched bound women with milk, simulating water-boarding to "illustrate the theocratic agenda imposed upon female bodies." The milk symbolized breast milk, one of the protest organizers explained on Facebook.

The group attached a symbol of their temple to the American flag and held up a sign that read, "America is not a theocracy. End forced motherhood."

At one point during the protest, a man claiming to be a sheriff unsuccessfully attempted to move the Satan worshippers along.

Members of the Satanic Temple drew inspiration for their "political theatre" from the nationwide anti-Planned Parenthood protests Saturday. Tens of thousands showed up to protest Planned Parenthood at over 300 locations across the country after a series of undercover videos revealed the abortion giant was harvesting and selling fetal organs and tissue.

The pro-life protesters hope to end Federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, which currently receives over half a billion dollars per year. Michigan state senators, some of whom appeared at the protests Saturday, have launched their own bill to defund the organization.

"The Satanic Temple strongly opposes the promotion of misinformation and believes that all people are entitled to make informed decisions about their health, family and future without coercion," says the group's web site. "We consider our action a form of worship; the rejection of tyranny is an affirmation of selfhood. So long as perverted theocratic systems of power attempt to manipulate our communities and distort truths for political gain, we will rebel."

Satan worshipers believe that "Satan is representative of the eternal rebel, enlightened inquiry and personal freedom," proclaims the Satanic Temple's web site."

Rebellion for the sake of having rebelled is irrational. Declaring "health, family... personal freedom" while ignoring the killing of a human, is irrational. Declaring the killing to be moral, and the prevention of the killing to be tyranny is irrational. Declaring "enlightened inquiry" and the philosophy of perpetual rebellion in the same sentence is irrational.

Satanists believe that there is a deity, but that they are smarter, kinder and better than the deity. Their proof of that is their irrational creed. If the deity created a rational universe, they are obligated to rebel against it.

A moral sickness has gripped America.

I just wonder if we'll return to Christianity before things turn even more barbarous.

For those who are not aware,many Satanists are self-professed Atheists and Agnostics.Check here

Here's an extract from their site:
The particular type of atheism we aspire to here is not one of God-like absolute certainty but of pragmatic high probability. We basically view the God with a beard sitting on a throne in heaven as being pretty silly and “unbelievable” despite the millions of people who think otherwise.The kind of atheism we espouse relates to the idea of a PERSON who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere at once (omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent)

And it cannot be complete without the usual Atheist mantra of celebrating doubt

We champion doubt, NOT God-like certainty!

After checking this site,I believe Materialism is better explained and expressed through Satanism.
I just love the following confession:

LaVeyan Satanism is one of several distinct religions identifying itself as Satanic.Followers are atheists who stress dependence on the self rather than reliance on any outside power. It encourages individualism, hedonism, materialism, ego, personal initiative, self-worth and self-determinism

I just shared this with Styxhexenhammer666, a You Tube Satanist. I asked him if he was proud of his Satanists now, and showed him the link. Here is his discussion section:

I also noticed that he removed the link to on his about page. I asked him if he realized that it was crap.

I went there but couldn't find your comment. Did you use a different name? Most stuff there was pretty old.
