The Satanic Temple Atlantic Canada Congregation (TSTAC Congregation) will not grant religious exemptions for vaccinations, as this does not align with TST’s Seven Tenets and adversely affects others. Specifically, Tenets III and IV state that one’s body is inviolable and the freedoms of others should be respected.
While one may believe that these tenets support one’s right to refuse vaccination, this is not the case, as vaccinations are an issue of public as opposed to individual health. One’s decision to decline vaccination directly affects others by putting them at risk and thus limiting their freedoms.
Additionally, Tenet V states that beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world, and the scientific evidence is clear that vaccines are safe and effective.
TSTAC congregation requires all who participate in rituals and other in-person events to wear masks and provide proof of vaccination in accordance with provincial public health regulations.
