As Satanists and most assuredly theistic Satanists are well aware, being religiously persecuted is essentially part of the package. We are allocated nothing but disdain and ad hominem hatred, all because of the religious path we choose.
It is however unusual to hear about this happening to other faiths as well, especially one of such high political clout as Catholicism.
Recently on a base near you -
As reported in the link at the bottom of this article, due to the nonsensical government shutdown, chaplains of all faith are being told to shove their proverbial faith were it cannot be seen. Being threatened with everything to fines and imprisonment, and yet the world moves on.
While I know that many would say that the Christians or etc abrahamic paths deserve this, I say they do not. Not because I agree with anything they teach, but because this only leads to more control and more oppression of all faiths regardless of size or beliefs.
Without making an overt political statement here, there is a highly concerning trend this sets precedent for, and it would not be surprising to see such used against our small and disorganized community as well.
So what, we are used to hiding!
Scoff this all you want but you must realize that merely hiding is not sufficient if things get out of hand. After all, it is not as if we have several fellow Satanist’s everywhere who we may congregate with at times of need and hardship.. Our only place to turn to is the internet and very public displays of such. So as you can see, hiding in the event of a true government crackdown would be devastating to our cause.
The US Constitution gives us explicit rights to follow whatever path we choose free from government intervention of any kind. Yet we see them starting to take that away, and this will arguably be one of the biggest mistakes that the Federal government could have ever made.
What Can You Do
We are no doubt a minority of a minority my friends.. We have neither numbers or money backing us, and that doesn’t seem likely to change any time soon. We are spread across the globe, and separated by oceans, political divides, borders and even restrictions. But we are not powerless..
This main battle right now is in the United States, which is supposed to be a bastion for civil liberty and freedom. It can be fought, but it means that we must swallow our pride and be willing to work with others who we may not agree with.
Groups such as the Order of the Dragon, which functions as a priesthood will never back down from this debacle, as well as the Temple of Theistic Satanism. We will stand with those who support our rights and support theirs.. Regardless of their beliefs or unbelief. An enemy of my enemy is my friend…
Although the catholic priest in the below linked article would rather drown himself in holy water than accept this, I will too stand with him in defense of his freedom of religion so long as he would do the same for mine.
Wake up Satanism… Wake up general Occult community.. We are next..
Remember – who did Hitler go after? First he attacked the religions he didn’t like and then played favorites with the one he did.. Christianity.. This Hitler.. Obama… Is a Muslim, or a Muslim sympathizer.. We had better be careful for we will be in big trouble if this goes unchecked.
