This begs an interesting question . . . . organizations who attain tax-free status are clearly interfering in government . . . . so how does this effect non-believers?
This affects non-believers because now that TST is recognized as a religion it will work to break Christian dominance in our society. TST will insist on the same rights as other churches by insisting on giving its prayers opening city hall meetings, equal rights in dedicating statues and monuments to Satan on city and county properties. This will cause Christians fits! The point TST is trying to make is freedom FROM religion insures freedom OF religion. This bolsters the wall of separation between church and state.
(Note: Most members of The Satanic Temple are really atheists and refer to Satan as a metaphor or symbol of personal freedom. This is kind of a secret because most Christians jump to the false conclusion that members of TST believe in evil. They don't!) [thesatanictemple.com]
