The Satanic Temple Has Experienced A Huge Surge In Membership Following The Election Of Donald Trump

Donald Trump Mural - Public DomainThe election of Donald Trump has been the best thing that has ever happened to the Satanic Temple. Founded in 2013, this relatively new organization now boasts chapters all over the country, and over the past couple of months they have experienced a huge surge in membership. Recently the Los Angeles chapter held a full-blown Satanic mass that included “a live bloodletting ritual“, but mostly it is the Satanic Temple’s ultra-liberal politics and anti-Trump message that is fueling interest in the group.

 

Of course the Satanic Temple is not officially aligned with the Democratic Party, but without a doubt the organization is extremely opposed to everything that Donald Trump says that he stands for. The following comes from L.A. Weekly

While the Satanic Temple doesn’t align itself with any political parties, campaigns or candidates, the organization’s goals are in staunch opposition to the Trump administration’s crackdowns on reproductive health, freedom of the press and transgender rights. “We want First amendment [rights], we want women to have control of their bodies, and we want the LGBT community to have equal rights,” Morrison says. “Obviously with Trump and Pence being in office and with the administration that’s being put in place right now, we’re probably looking at a more aggressive stance” than in previous years. He says membership in the organization surged after Trump was elected, with thousands of members now spread among dozens of chapters around the world.

Another article that I found had some more specific details. Prior to the election, the Satanic Temple had about 50,000 members, but once Trump won in November registrations and donations started to come in at a staggering pace

The Satanic Temple attracted “thousands” of new members in just the first 36 hours after the election of Donald Trump, according to co-founder Lucien Greaves. The 4-year-old temple, which had a pre-Trump membership of around 50,000, has never before seen a spike in registration nearly this big.

“It’s crazy,” Greaves said after a speech in front of some adoring fans at CU-Boulder. The emails, registrations, donations and social media posts are pouring in faster than the temple can respond. “People have a desperate need for something to rally to right now.”

At this point, membership in the group is somewhere around 100,000, but it continues to grow every day as their anti-Trump message resonates with young adults.

It surprises many people when they learn that the Satanic Temple does not actually promote belief in a literal being named Satan. Instead, they portray themselves as “justice-oriented atheists” that are promoting LGBT causes, climate change awareness, evolution in public schools and especially abortion rights

Recently, the Satanic Temple, a non-theistic religious organization known for protesting Christian influence in the government, turned its attention to this attack on women’s reproductive health, staging Satanic counter-protests at anti-abortion rallies and filing a lawsuit against the state of Missouri on behalf of one of their members who was forced to wait 72 hours to get an abortion due to the state’s waiting period law.

Needless to say, their “values” line up perfectly with the millions upon millions of Americans out there that absolutely hate Donald Trump.

So if they don’t actually believe in Satan, why call their organization the Satanic Temple?

This is how one of the co-founders of the group explained it

“We decided that Satan was the ultimate rebel, and we realized the power of that symbol,” says William Morrison, a co-founder of the Satanic Temple’s L.A. chapter, which formed about a year ago and has held recruitment and advocacy meetings regularly ever since. He acknowledges that while the group’s allegiance to Satan may give the wrong impression, it has also garnered them an outpouring of international media attention that they likely wouldn’t have achieved otherwise.

Of course one of Satan’s greatest achievements is convincing much of the world that he doesn’t exist.

But let there be no doubt that Satan and his minions do exist, and once in a while they even pop up in our news stories. For example, the following is an excerpt from a mainstream news story that I found earlier today

A Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple in their garage and chewing on the dead man’s face told television psychologist Phil McGraw he was fleeing a demon-like figure named Daniel and only had a vague recollection of the slayings.

In a 22-minute interview released Tuesday by prosecutors, Austin Harrouff said he lost his wits as he walked back to his father’s home after storming out of a restaurant where they had an argument.

McGraw asked about “the devil talking to you,” and Harrouff went on to describe a “dark figure” he called Daniel.

And if you have any doubt that the demonic exists in our society today, just read this entire article all the way to the end. After reading an article like that, it becomes much easier to understand why I am constantly warning about the judgment that is coming to America in my books and on my websites.

Our world is changing at an extraordinary pace. For example, did you know that approximately 41 percent of all of the Protestant Christians in the entire world live in Africa?

And by 2050, it is being projected that number could rise to 53 percent.

Years ago I met some missionaries that had come from Africa to reach the United States with the gospel. At the time I thought that was quite strange, but I don’t think that it is strange anymore.

Just like most of Europe, the United States is rapidly becoming a post-Christian nation. Each succeeding generation is becoming less “conservative” and less Christian, and at this point the values of most Millennials are much more in line with the Satanic Temple than they are with the Word of God.

The Satanic Temple is exploding in popularity because that is where our culture is going.

If you don’t like where our culture is going, stand up and try to change it, but be warned that there is often a very high price for standing up and proclaiming the truth.

Everywhere you look evil is exploding all around us, and this battle is not for the timid at heart.

    I’ve heard something similar from China missionaries (where 30K people are getting saved each day). Some Chinese Christians are praying for persecution for the church in the US since we have fallen so far away the Lord and His Word (persecution has a way of clearing out all of the “dead wood”). The church of Smyrna was that way – the more Satan persecuted it, the more the gospel spread like wildfire. It’s interesting that in Revelation 6:9, under the altar we see the souls of those who had been slain because of the Word of God and their testimony (the gospel). People are being persecuted in the Tribulation because they preach God’s Word and share the gospel! Here in America, we’re more interested in fancy buildings, filling pews with pagans (unbiblical), and “your best life now.” Most so-called pastors are all hiding in the tall grass. We probably could use some persecution to find out who is really who.

    The Church of Satan will fail! For they have experienced a surge of sad, bitter losers and lolcows that will turn their church into an even greater laughing stock than it already is!

    In truth these liberals should be joining the Cuckolic Church as Pope Francis´s mindless minions.
