All religions are bullshit no matter how much your values might overlap with one.

LaVeyan Satanism is just atheism with a floor show. Nonetheless, these are great secular principles to live by.

LaVeyan Satanism is older, more psychological in tone and a bit libertarian politically. The Temple tends to be more classically liberal and is geared to social/political challenges to the privilege/chauvinism of traditional religious organizations, especially christianity. Both use the “Satan” of Milton and Byron as symbolic of opposition to arbitrary authority.

These are certainly great rules to live by. Why do they necessarily belong to Satan?

The Satanic Temple is satirical, really, formed in response to fundamentalism. They do a lot of first amendment work

"The Satanic Temple has become the primary religious Satanic organization in the world with congregations internationally, and a number of high-profile public campaigns designed to preserve and advance secularism and individual liberties. The rise of The Satanic Temple has been met with an increase in commentary regarding what Satanism is as media outlets struggle to grasp how this upstart religion has begun to shift religious liberty debates with claims of equal access."

@JonnaBononna Most of these same principles led me toward Buddhism about 60 years ago, and then later to Zen Buddhism (which is Buddhist principles without the religion). I've been a Zen guy for over 30 years now.

This should be posted in front of every court house!

I'm only laughing because of all the ten commandment pillars that are now in place.

@Lorajay And, the tenets are soooo much more universal and secular.

@Lorajay that was precisely what I was getting at. These are way more relevant!
