The Satanic Temple has launched a campaign seeking a religious exemption from certain anti-abortion laws that attempt to dissuade women from ending a pregnancy. In light of the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision, the group says they have deeply held beliefs about bodily autonomy and scientific accuracy, and those beliefs are violated by state-level “informed consent” laws that rely on misleading information about abortion risks.
Normally, we think atheists and satanists are dicks. But apparently the Satanic Temple once held a rally in support of Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) for approving a bill that allows prayer in public schools, saying they’re glad the new policy will allow children to pray to Satan. Ouch!
