4 Phoenix city councilmen trying to block Satanist prayer

Recommended Posts

Four Phoenix City councilmen are trying to block a group of Satanists from giving the opening prayer at a Feb. 17 council meeting.

Followers of the Satanic Temple, an organization that promotes religious agnosticism, are scheduled to give the invocation and submitted a request in December.

While some Phoenix leaders have objected, the city has said it will let the Satanists pray. City Attorney Brad Holm defended the decision in a statement released Thursday.

"Consistent with the U.S. Supreme Court’s direction, the city cannot dictate religious viewpoints or the content of a prayer," Holm wrote. "In addition, government may not exclude a denomination or a religion from praying under these circumstances."

But the City Council could have the ultimate say.

I always heard there were Satanists everywhere, but never met any. Apparently they were right!  There is a video with the article. The Constitution is being used against the people now.

Glad to see councilmen doing this.

What happened to freedom, and the constitution, eh?

Oh, but you only want those things to apply to groups or religions you approve of. 

You're not a true patriot, you never will be.

The Satanic Temple had only been around since 2013 and they claim to have over 20,000 members.
They have no support from any other Satanic organizations that I can find.
Their antics have been strongly criticized by the Church of Satan.

Something is wrong here and don't just mean them pushing their B.S about. 
They say they are funded by private donors.
I want to know who.

Yeah I second that. They literally came out of nowhere and are aggressively pushing their B.S agenda. I wonder if their getting Soros money? One things for sure someone is financing them.
