Satanic Temple To Open International Headquarters In Salem

SALEM, Mass. (AP) — Salem residents are feeling unsettled after receiving word that the Satanic Temple is moving its international headquarters to an old Victorian mansion in the Massachusetts town.

The nationally recognized political and religious organization will open the doors of its new command center on Friday. The building is a former funeral home located around the corner from an elementary school.

Most recently the Bridge Street structure operated as the Salem Art Gallery. The Satanic Temple plans to continue holding exhibits at the site.

Organization spokesman Lucien Greaves says the Satanic Temple “isn’t an attack on anybody” and stressed that members won’t be going door to door or affecting neighbors’ lives in any way.

Salem officials say they are currently working to better understand the temple’s intended use.

  1. its a church just like any other chuch..and from what i hear way better rules..more humanistic than other religions. Freedom of religion applies to ALL religions right? or is it just christian superiority once again?

    Satan is a liar and so are his followers. Man enters an occult secret society. He is surrounded by candles and torches and men in black robes similar to “Animal House” scene with Kevin Bacon in the Fraternity. He is lead into some rooms for trials. In one room is a severed goat head he is told to crawl up to and kiss 6 times. They will kill him if he doesn’t at this point. The next room is a naked woman. They tell him to “Do as you wish.” Who is the woman? Your daughter?

    That is the initiation for the modern Knights Templar. Freemasons ride the goat. Wiccans believe in a mother goddess with a goat consort. Satanic Temple is not there to help your community. They wish to corrupt it.

    Satan is a liar and deceiver and so are his followers. You want to be tolerant of them? There is a price to pay. God brings the Good and The Bad. (Isaiah 45:7) Man is the head, woman the neck turning the head. The Greater Church is a Bride for Christ. Turns his head. How are you turning his head?
