Satanic Temple head: ‘More than 50% of our membership is LGBTQ’

‘Our chapters are always involved with Pride parades in the United States,’ he said.

By Claire Chretien,

“It would be a conservative estimate to say that more than 50 percent of our membership is LGBTQ,” the head of the Satanic Temple said in a recent interview.

Lucien Greaves, who runs the U.S. Satanic Temple, told U.K.-based Attitude magazine, “From the start, when one of our early actions was the Pink Mass, a lot of LGBTQ people were looking for another community that didn’t see them as defined by their sexual orientation.”

It appears Greaves was referring to a ritual he performed at the grave of the mother of the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, a fringe, vehemently anti-Catholic group condemned by pro-family activists for, among other things, reducing people to the sum of their sexual attractions (just as the LGBT lobby does). The “black mass,” meanwhile, is a blasphemous mockery of the Catholic Mass that includes the desecration of a consecreated host, which the Catholic Church teaches is the literal body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ.

“Within the Satanic Temple, we’re all pretty much one and the same,” Greaves continued. “We’re all Satanists and it’s not like we have ‘tolerance’ for trans people or gay people or sex workers, we just don’t f—— care, and a lot of people in those communities appreciate that.”

The Satanic Temple has made a name for itself campaigning against pro-life laws in the name of “religious freedom” and supporting the LGBT lobby.

“Our chapters are always involved with Pride parades in the United States, they’re always doing something for the LGBTQ community and they’re always open about inclusion,” said Greaves.

Other recent activities by the Satanic Temple include erecting a statue next to a Nativity scene in Illinois and bringing a giant statue of Baphomet — a half-man, half-goat creature representing the devil — to the Arkansas state capitol.

The late Vatican chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth wrote in his book An Exorcist Explains the Demonic that satanic influence can “lead to confusion about one’s gender,” “particularly in the young.”

“The most frequent weak points in man are, from time to time, always the same: pride, money, and lust,” he wrote.

Satanists don’t promote ‘a belief in a personal Satan’?

Pink News article on Greaves’s comments to Attitude reported, “A commitment to Satan is not required to join the Temple, although a commitment to trolling anti-LGBT evangelicals is desirable. The group’s website clarifies that members do not actually ‘believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural.’”

“It explains: ‘As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions. Satanists should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things.’”

That sentiment is similar to what the Satanic Temple in Canada’s national coordinator said before hosting the country’s first satanic “black mass.”

They are “atheistic Satanists” who don’t believe in “supernaturalism” but “look to science as our arbiter, Nicholas Marc of the Satanic Temple in Canada said.

Fr. Amorth also addressed this in his book, writing:

Generally one distinguishes [between] a personal Satanism (or occultism) and an impersonal or rationalist Satanism. The first recognizes the personal nature of Satan, and the followers entreat, adore, and honor him as a god. The second, the impersonal or rationalist, does not believe in Satan’s personal nature, that is, in the metaphysical sense; rather, they see him as a cosmic energy that is present in each man and in the world and that, when called upon, will emerge in all of his power to carry out the most absurd and atrocious perversions, always connecting them to esoteric rites.

What is their objective? Satanists wish to develop this depraved form of devotion through a diffusion of the theory and practice of three basic principles: you can do all that you wish, no one has the right to command you, and you are the god of yourself. …

In appearance these principles are seductive, especially for younger people, because they delude them into thinking that life is a beautiful holiday in an imaginary land of playthings, where everything is permitted and where your ‘I’ does not recognize any limits regarding pleasure and enjoyment.

Colorado-based exorcist Father Chad Ripperger questioned in a previous LifeSiteNews interview the premise of atheistic satanism.

“My question is, if it’s just a myth, why are you reenacting all this? Why are you doing it?” he said of the Canadian black mass.

And because Satan exists, “in that sense it doesn’t matter if they actually believe if he’s real or not; if they do the particular ritual which will actually invoke him, he will possibly, God permitting, show up, or it will have an effect on the spiritual level independent” of what the Satanists believe, he said.

Witchcraft has been on the rise in recent years, with feminists turning to it as a form of anti-Trump protest. A movement encouraging people to “hex” the president has emerged.

“The number of witches and Americans practicing Wicca religious rituals increased dramatically since the 1990s, with several recent studies indicating there may be at least 1.5 million witches across the country,” Newsweek reported in November 2018. “A Trinity College study conducted in 1990 estimated only about 8,000 Wiccans in the U.S., but the increase has been led by a rejection of mainstream Christianity among young Americans as well as a rise in occultism. With 1.5 million potential practicing witches across the U.S., witchcraft has more followers than the 1.4 million mainline members of the Presbyterian church.”

  1. People should not hurt each other. With out understanding we humans will always be at war. Having understanding leads to acceptance and solutions. I think both sides of any group have try to understand each other. And if one side says they are attacking us your protecting yourselves out of fear. Because in the end you give a hand to someone they will give a hand back in the near or far future that’s human nature. Again if fear get in the way question where and why you have it. If you start asking these questions you will find the truth. So from your stand point you are right. And from my stand point both sides are right because I agree with both sides by understanding.

  2. Look I understand what your saying, children looking at a gay guy dressed as a women will throw them off and they will say this in not right. I also get that going to church teaches us and all religions teach do not judge others. So the child learns this is not right. I understand parents have a fear that these people may some way influence the child. So the parent says that’s not ok because I cant have you talking to those people. What will my friends think, if my child made friends with this gay guy. This is your ego saying we have to look good status quo. Then you have anger to these people because they aggravate Christians. You have to find out why and who hurt them to be aggravated. If a dog is cornered he will bite. They are biting back, this is clue to ask why are they biting back? Is it that the religion group is biting them first with judgement and other things. See there is a reason for everything, dig deep and find out what your fear is and then you will understand your self more. We need to stay on the right path or we will dwindle and die out. We need to procreate or the species will die. You fear of death. So if everyone could live forever with out eating, and working. I bet people will never have fear and that is the bottom line fear.

  3. Maybe god is changing the rules, See he gave all of us free will. There are good Christians and bad Christians just like everyone else. we cant be putting a label on one group and be ok with the other. We are all human and everyone makes mistakes, but is it a mistake it really comes down to which view you look at. Those people that you dislike maybe doing what they are doing for a number of reasons, anger, put down, made less of.
    I’m saying both sides have good reasons why they do what they do. It’s really comes down to how to work together and that’s what love is. If a church says others are wrong then they limit themselves from the rest of the world. The truth will come out, no one can force anyone to be right. Because there is no right or wrong just experience. And when we sit down and ask the other side why they do what they do only then you will be closer to the truth. So next time don’t assume someone else is wrong if they do things you don’t agree with. Find out why they are doing there is a deep reason. And that’s how the world will change to know more about others means understanding there is no right and wrong.

  4. First you need to stop judging other people. When a person is being judgmental in their perception, they are unable to simultaneously transmit loving vibrations, thus these opposing frequencies cannot co-exist in the human body.

    If we cannot recognize a value system in which all human beings have intrinsic value in the creation of life, then people seek validation for their own existence through the external world and other people.

  5. Its all called being human, Love does not throw away their child but love does bring loving guardians that are straight and gay. Religion can’t tun a gay guy straight but there are straight satanic cults and gay satanic colts, so what. Only have a problem when they harm that child.

  6. I am less concerned about who is LOVING each other than who is KILLING another. Like Demo and Repub, This is another divide and conquer tactic. God loves all being unconditionally, why don’t we? – ONE

  7. I have this really cool bumper sticker I designed. It has mama, papa, & baby zebra, mama, papa & baby elephant, & in the center it states ” Because God has made it clear to Mankind he is without excuse.” I did not put the actual scripture of the book it came out of because you do not need it to prove the point, that procreation is the only way for survival. Without mama & papa you become extinct. So I propose to give lesbians & sodomites each their own island or state (no cheating, each their own) & within 80 years they will be extinct.

    • Your’re forgetting one thing: What is the positive of the being gay? They care for children who others can’t care for. We are all human, there are positive outcomes for a every reason. With love anything can happen. Maybe god put gays here as a test to see how much we can open our hearts to be positive. All religions are about love. Use your heart not what was written 2,000 years ago. Love is acceptance of everything good or bad because in the end it’s all about experience, and that’s how we grow regardless of religion. Then who am I to judge, your here for a reason too.

      • Your missing the point, I did not use religion or a writing from 2,000 years ago. (for that reason) God speaks to us through the creation. Whether it be bubble bees, flowers, birds, tigers, bears, turtles, dolphins, they All are male & female to procreate. To deny it, you just die out, plain & simple.

    • So my point is you will always have three categories of people it’s not right for us to judge others, god wants some humans one way and other to learn from the experience. There are not three sides there are many more sides. It’s not black or white, or lesbian or gay, there is more than ten categories for the two classes of lesbian and gay. Love goes beyond science, because science doesn’t mean anything when love grows those kids. Gay people don’t learn to be gay. It’s not like one day people at parties decided to get drunk and not knowing what they were doing start kissing on the same sex, and it caught on to be gay. Since straight drunk men don’t learn to kiss the same sex even the ones that aren’t religious. So it’s proves that straight people are pumping out gay kids and is genetic and not a choice. There is something more important than a species throwing away their child. Its called love, when the gay and lesbian come to raise that child into a loving person. Isn’t that what religion is about. So science does prove religion.

      • Since you keep bringing up religion & make a point on saying “this is not about religion” then why does the LGBTQ group go out of it’s way to aggravate Christians? I have written to the head of LGBTQ Francis De Bernardo at New Way Ministry, to ask why their is a check list of churches through out our nation? & if the LGBTQ sincerely wanted to be a part of a religious family why not create their own. But you see their intentions is to aggravate. They go out of their way to destroy communities of family. They make a rainbow flag which is taken from Noah’s rainbow after the flood, They have gay pride parades on Fathers Day, The men come to read to 5 year old children at your local library dressed in a pink dress heavy on make up wearing high heals, they attack your public schools with 3rd graders getting sex education for anal sex, they go out of their way to work in children clothing stores. This is clearly about the destruction of family. Statics are that only 3% of the population is gay. Furthermore their has never been any proof that humans are born gay, it’s all been media & Hollywood hype with falsified data to take down society. It’s All been done before in history, first take over monetary system (done 1913 Federal Reserve) then morals, been working on that since 1960’s.

    • So that leaves the other 50% as heterosexual, I dont see your article condemning them.

      Also, I dont know how you came to this conclusion but last time I checked its straight couples that have gay kids, so as unfortunate as it is people like you will continue to replenish our population.
      Also you are aware that Hitler had a similar mentality as “put us all in our own island or state” right?

      Also I’ve gotta say the other comments are heartwarming, it’s time we all acknowledge that despite our different beliefs we are all human and we should respect each other.

      • Thankyou for pointing out that the jewish people who Adolf wanted to create their own State, was also the same community that had a high population of homosexuals. It is also important to point out jews are not Israelites, nor are they Hebrews. & Love in Hebrew = giving, those who risk their lives.
