I can't stand the Satanic Temple. I should want to give them credit for publicly admitting they don't actually believe "Satan" exists, either literally or figuratively, and that they chose the Judeo-Christian anti-deity for the sole and expressed purpose of trolling Christians. But the problem is I can't stand trolls, to a greater degree than I credit honesty.

They can have their silly statue though, to the same extent anyone else is allowed a silly statue.

They were trolling this time, but they do good works under the cloak of religion in other matters.

Hail Satan? is the runaway hit of the Sundance Film Festival. Some reviews. A little about Penny Lane who made the documentary. Just for good measure, Greaves take on Mike Pence.

I hope it is as well received when it opens to the public in the spring.

Hail Satan!
