“The Satanic Temple: The Lasting Influence of the Abraxas Circle” by Spencer Sunshine

This is excerpted from Spencer Sunshine’s book Neo-Nazi Terrorism and Countercultural Fascism: The Origins and Afterlife of James Mason’s Siege. It documents how Siege—the “bible” of aspiring neo-Nazi terrorists like the Atomwaffen Division—was created and disseminated. In particular, the second half deals with the role played by four 1980s and ‘90s countercultural figures: Boyd Rice, Adam Parfrey, Michael Moynihan, and Nikolas Schreck, who in turn collected a group of collaborators which Sunshine calls the “Abraxas Circle.” The end of the book includes a section about the influence of the Abraxas Circle on TST—especially the infamous 2003 “Might is Right” show.

The Satanic Temple and Christian nationalists are on the same side

TST isn’t engaging in “successful trolling” or undermining Dominionists; they are actively fueling a culture war that benefits both reactionaries and corporate Satanists Christmas is a booming season for The Satanic Temple.

What John Oliver gets wrong about The Satanic Temple and abortion rights

“Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic” is a funny name — and a distraction from what’s actually going on with TST’s New Mexico Telehealth Clinic In the most recent episode of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”, he made a mention of a particular publicity stunt by a certain satanic for-profit business-cum-church. In so […]

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 […]

What’s going on with David Silverman and The Satanic Temple?

Note: A previous version of this article lacked the updates between June 9 and June 28, 2023, but also treated too credulously and authoritatively The Satanic Temple Sober Faction’s description of Doug “Lucien Greaves” Misicko reduced role in the organization when combined with Dex Desjardin’s description of Misicko as being “semi-retired”. The recap and responses […]

“Lucien Greaves” and The Satanic Temple have a lot to answer for

How can TST’s defenders think grotesque bigotry by its owner is merely “an imperfection” to be celebrated? When confronted with examples of Doug “Lucien Greaves” Misicko’s pattern of reactionary words and actions over the past two decades, usually, The Satanic Temple’s sycophants offer one of a small handful of stock excuses to deflect and otherwise […]
