The Satanic Temple is an organization that is stepping up to help others.
Tempers are running high this year, with arguably the most controversial president to date in the White House and the push for equality between a number of groups based on race, gender, and sexual orientation becoming even more heated than usual. Though the usual organizations are taking up the issues and organizing marches, their numbers have increased as support has flared since President Trump first announced his run for office.
People say that politics makes strange bedfellows, so it shouldn't be too surprising to hear that LGBTQ activists and pro-choice groups have found an unlikely ally in their fight for rights. That ally is The Satanic Temple (TST), which, contrary to what your instinct may tell you about people that 'follow Satan,' is an ethical group that just wants to lend a hand.
"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," it reads on the group's website.
After reading their mission statement, it becomes a bit more clear why TST would advocate for causes they believe in, and they are going above and beyond the call of duty. Two campaigns in the past several weeks have come to light related to TST and people seem to be loving it so much that they are getting involved.
