SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS (January 2020)-- The Satanic Temple, a nontheistic religious group representing Satanists around the world, sent a letter to Pastor Paula White, who is serving as one of President Trump’s religious advisors. White recently gained media attention, and social media amusement, when she publicly prayed for God to forcibly end “Satanic pregnancies.”
The Satanic Temple has taken her up on her prayers and asked the 53-year-old millionaire televangelist Pastor White to fund abortions for ten of its members.
“It was a surprise to us that this conservative pastor is boldly in favor of God terminating pregnancies,” says Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves, “but we are glad to learn that she’s coming around on the science, which clearly shows that the only person with rights in this equation is the pregnant woman.”
The Satanic Temple asserts that its mission “is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, [and] reject tyrannical authority,” has over 100k members around the world, many of whom come from Christian backgrounds.
“We are not against religion,” says Greaves. “In fact, we are officially a church in the United States. What we are against is tyranny. We are glad to learn that the pastor agrees.”
The Satanic Temple has been at the forefront of the fight to protect the reproductive rights of its members and launched a campaign to provide religious exemptions from many of the laws that do not promote health and safety. More information on this can be found at religiousreproductiverights.com.
