Join The Satanic Temple – Los Angeles Chapter in a beach cleanup on the 4th of July, meet the members, and learn how to get involved!
Santa Monica received an “F” grade for water quality in the summer of 2015. 4th of July is one of the busiest beach days of the year for Los Angeles, and it’s also the day an estimated 150,000 beach goers decide to litter and spoil L.A.’s beautiful coastlines. This not only affects public health, but the local ecosystem. Help us keep our beaches clean and safe this Independence Day for people and ocean critters alike.
We will be meeting at the Venice Skatepark at 5pm, where we will distribute plastic bags and gloves. We will then march north towards the Santa Monica Pier cleaning up as we go. Afterwards, we will offer a meet & greet/information session on the Venice Boardwalk, where you can meet members/leaders of the Los Angeles Chapter, learn about TST, and how to get involved. Following, we will be grabbing drinks at The Townhouse/Del Monte Speakeasy at 42 Windward Ave.
Ave Satanas! Hail Satan!
Please note: We will be at Lancaster City Hall at 3PM
Lancaster Pentagram Ritual Invocation
On Monday June 6th (6,6,16) The Satanic Temple of Los Angeles will be announcing its presence in The City of Lancaster California with an introductory Satanic Ritual. We will also present a copy of “The Seven Tenets” which reflect the core beliefs of The Satanic Temple, to your city officials.
We are The Satanic Temple of Los Angeles. Our mission is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people. In addition, we embrace practical common sense and justice. As an organized religion, we feel it is our function to actively provide outreach, to lead by example, and to participate in public affairs where so ever the issues might benefit from rational, Satanic insights. As Satanists, we all should be guided by our conscience and undertake noble pursuits guided by our individual will. We believe that this is the hope of all mankind and the highest aspiration of humanity.
It is in this spirit of benevolence that we announce our presence in your city and offer the citizens of Lancaster the traditional Satanic symbol of protection from evil, the Pentagram.
To the Satanist, the Pentagram symbolizes the triumph of matter and individual spirit over dogma, earth over an illusory promise of the afterlife. It is a symbol of our dedication to fight against tyranny and the oppressor of individual liberty.
The Pentagram is a star with five points, using GPS technology we will place the five points of the star so that the Pentagram will encompass your entire city. When all of the points are in place, the Pentagram is completed. Drawing this symbol around your city represents a solemn promise from us, The Satanic Temple of Los Angeles. We will stand with the good people of The City of Lancaster and struggle for our constitutional right to individual liberty, freedom of expression, and the separation of church and state in your community.
We are excited to participate in your public sphere and welcome new members from your community into our ever expanding family.
The Satanic Temple of Los Angeles
We’re excited to support Steve always, for the entirety of his campaign and especially in The City of Lancaster on June 6, 2016 with a ritual- more soon…
“As an atheist and organizer for The Satanic Temple’s Los Angeles Chapter, I fight for true Religious Freedom”
(Los Angeles, Calif.) May 11, 2016 – Former U.S. Marine Sergeant Steve Hill is The Satanic Temple’s first political candidate who has openly acknowledged affiliation. Hill is running as a Democrat for the California State Senate (D-21).
Hill said in a statement, “I am not an establishment politician and my sense of civic responsibility is not compromised by religious loyalties. As an atheist and organizer for The Satanic Temple’s Los Angeles Chapter, I fight for true religious freedom. This includes preserving the right to believe or disbelieve as one sees fit, and to fight against theocratic assaults against our Constitutional liberties. If there is one thing that the presidential primaries have revealed, it’s that the American public has grown weary of the Establishment, and for good reason. When future historians try to figure out how a sideshow clown like Donald Trump managed to secure the GOP’s nomination — if not the presidency — they’ll have to consider the extreme disenfranchisement and distrust of the American electorate who came to prefer anybody who could speak openly, rather than another groomed puppet managed by insidious backers and a committee of pollsters. The age of corporate-sponsored candidates must come to an end. Let us come together to elevate our less privileged and provide opportunities for our children.”
The Satanic Temple’s spokesperson, Lucien Greaves, explains, “In a nation where our largest religious population: fights to uphold discrimination as a religious value, exonerates religious daycares and schools from meeting basic standards-of-care, allows children to be hit as a form of punishment in a significant number of public schools — all based upon archaic scriptural edicts; it is refreshing to have a candidate running for office who advocates for wholesome Satanic values. The Satanic Temple offers a counterbalance to theocratic evangelical politicians who pig-headedly overplay their hands by imposing their superstitious public displays, restricting reproductive rights, and fighting for regressive measures against gay rights. I’m extremely happy that Steve Hill is on the ballot, and I look forward to seeing him take his place in the Senate.”
About Steve Hill
An African American who began his life in poverty, Hill has dedicated his life to the service of his community. The candidate enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, earning the rank of Sergeant (E-5). He then relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the aerospace industry. After nearly a decade, he became part of the California Department of Corrections, assumed responsibility for student and faculty safety as the campus supervisor, and established his own company, Anaverde Appraisal, in the Antelope Valley in northern Los Angeles County. Having witnessed the mortgage meltdown and ongoing Wall Street corruption, as well as the underrepresentation for the working class families of America, Hill became a voice for the censored and suppressed through one of the purest forms of sociopolitical commentary, comedy. Utilizing his ability to induce laughter and joy, he addressed important issues in a dialogue-conducive environment.
