Speaker: Jon Winningham of The Satanic Temple Houston
About the Satanic Temple: “The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will. Politically aware, Civic-minded Satanists and allies in The Satanic Temple have publicly opposed The Westboro Baptist Church, advocated on behalf of children in public school to abolish corporal punishment, applied for equal representation where religious monuments are placed on public property, provided religious exemption and legal protection against laws that unscientifically restrict women’s reproductive autonomy, exposed fraudulent harmful pseudo-scientific practitioners and claims in mental health care, and applied to hold clubs alongside other religious after school clubs in schools besieged by proselytizing organizations.”
Our local goal is to create and maintain a safe community of Satanists and our allies in the diverse greater Houston area. Group activities include meeting like-minded individuals at monthly book clubs and social events. The purpose of these events is to discuss Satanic philosophy, activism, and atheism. We work to apply this knowledge to improve the lives of our community members and dispel harmful myths about Satanists.
This event is hosted by Houston Oasis
