How The Satanic Temple is just like the Catholic Church

Court filings reveal not only does TST pay to get positive news coverage to distract from the bad, it used the same PR guy the Church did — for exactly what you think Background: The Satanic Temple started suing four former members of its Washington State chapter in April 2020, accusing us of, among other […]

The Satanic Temple II: Electric Boogaloo

TST’s second lawsuit against four former members in Washington State rolls on in King County superior court. Now, as we were able to happily announce in January, The Satanic Temple is no longer suing us in federal court! Apparently TST decided that the Ninth Circuit requiring them to actually specify what and how they claimed […]

2023 was a very bad year for The Satanic Temple in court

TST started two new lawsuits in 2023, but they lost eight existing cases and seem to have completely abandoned two others Yet again, the legal performance of The Satanic Temple was disappointing and incompetent at best, but just as likely the worse conclusion is true: it was a needless waste of much-needed resources by attention-seeking […]

Why did The Satanic Temple lose its Indiana abortion lawsuit?

TST’s failure in The Satanic Temple Inc. vs Rokita highlights how ill-equipped and deeply unserious the Temple’s owners are about confronting the Christian right, especially in a post-Dobbs world In late September 2022, TST filed two nearly identical federal lawsuits in Idaho and Indiana, once again in an ostensible attempt to establish a religious exemption […]

The Satanic Temple is a threat to all Satanists

The Temple admits its members have more to fear from TST than they realize Longtime followers of The Satanic Temple’s legal history will know the Temple is, by design, a far greater threat to its own members than it has ever been interested in, or capable of, posing to the Christian Right. It’s still wild […]

From The Satanic Temple’s website’s FAQ section: “I saw something disparaging about TST online” TST's activities typically receive widespread support and glowing reviews. Unfortunately, our efforts sometimes attract negative attention from evangelists, violent abusers, and those seeking to profit from criticism of us. Some of these people join TST so that they can claim to be former members. Negative comments are often outright lies and defamatory. In instances where there is libel, we often take legal action. If you come across sensational accusations, the smallest amount of research is enough to debunk false claims.

Why did TST lose its federal abortion case in Texas?

Because The Satanic Temple is very bad at court cases. We’ve said it before, and we will no doubt have many occasions to say it again in the future. This article goes through the judge’s opinion in some depth to show why that judge is not a “doddering old fool”, as TST’s owner claimed in […]
