Satan is Suing the City of Boston
The Satanic Temple is not happy with Boston and they are taking them to court!
According to an article in Patch, the Satanic Temple is based out of Salem, Massachusetts and they aren't happy with Boston's city council. They think that the council has unfairly kept them from conducting the pre-meeting prayer. It's up to the city council to invite religious leaders to lead a prayer before the meeting. The Temple says that they have never been invited and they haven't read their prayer..according to the lawsuit.
Wait, what? Lucien Greaves, founder of the Satanic Temple, said that it might seem petty, but they are serious. Boston is not commenting.
The lawsuit wants to the court to make the city council to give them a chance to say a prayer at a meeting. So would the prayer be about human sacrifice? Lucien says nope. Those are are old wives tales. But he says that Boston needs other viewpoints, even if they seem bizarre to them.
Here is the prayer:
Let us stand now, unbowed and unfettered by arcane doctrines born of fearful minds in darkened times. Let us embrace the Luciferian impulse to eat of the Tree of Knowledge and dissipate our blissful and comforting delusions of old. Let us demand that individuals be judged for their concrete actions, not their fealty to arbitrary social norms and illusory categorizations. Let us reason our solutions with agnosticism in all things, holding fast only to that which is demonstrably true. Let us stand firm against any and all arbitrary authority that threatens the personal sovereignty of One or All. That which will not bend must break, and that which can be destroyed by truth should never be spared its demise. It is Done. Hail Satan.
Hail Satan? There's something you don't hear every day at a city council meeting.
