This is our world: Satanists are the voice of reason.


#3

I have given all my likes to the Satanic Temple of Chicago. I have no more likes to give.


#4

Looks a little like a kegerator, is Satan selling beer?


#5


#6

One small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind?


#7

If this is what it takes, then I’m all in!

Satan’s cool,
Satan’s neat,
Satan runs on cloven feet!


#8

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates require
Violate your Fate and you’ll feel Satan’s fire
So hide your surly, barely-human Christmas ire

As an atheist, this sounds like a bunch of ex-christian woo woo.

Fun stunt though.


#10

In addition to the Satanic Temples contribution there is another piece:

The rotunda for several years has had a sign from the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation that states, “Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”

I totally read that in the voice of Crow T. Robot.


#12

Wicked.

Has always been true.


#14

Hail Satan!


#15

Jeez! that kind of definition takes all the fun out of depravity.


#16

I believe the old saying is one small imp for a man, one giant Devil for all mankind.


#17

“I can’t disagree with the statement in itself but when it’s coming from a satanic or a cult group, my response would be that everything about Satan is a lie.”

But that would mean … that this response is a lie, too?


#18

Sure would beat that stingy thimbleful of wine the other folks are offering!


#19

Entry into Hell for you will be easy, I predict.

Hail Santa!
