The Satanic Temple Believes in

Seven Fundamental Tenets:

I One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.

II The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.

III One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.

IV The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.

V Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.

VI People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and remediate any harm that may have been caused.

VII Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

No. We do not believe in anything supernatural, nor do we worship any being.
Satan, to us, is a metaphor representing the unfettered pursuit of knowledge, personal liberation, and rebellion against arbitrary authority. Our Satan is the literary Satan of Anatole France, John Milton, and William Blake. It is not the evil being of Abrahamic mythology or Hollywood fantasy.
Similarly, we do not believe in or promote symbolic “evil.” We believe that things that cause unnecessary suffering are bad, and that things that alleviate suffering are good.
Our Chapter holds monthly meetings, social events, and participates in a number of community projects and fundraisers that support both our local community and The Satanic Temple’s national campaigns.
We are a non-theistic Satanic religious organization. We seek to cultivate a space for like-minded individuals, working to mutually support each other in our growth as Satanists. Community engagement and mission-specific activism are essential components of what we do. If advancing our causes is not a primary reason you are thinking of joining, this is probably not the group for you.
The Satanic Temple (TST) is not a political organization, a parody/trolling religion, or a catch-all activist club for every progressive cause. While you might be very passionate about a cause and while your cause may be worthwhile, if it does not closely align with our Tenets and mission statement or if it does not promote or advance the mission of TST, you will not find traction for that cause here. We encourage you to seek groups that do.
If you are unclear on TST’s mission, please refer to the FAQ linked above.
