The Satanic Temple just got handed a big, big loss that will no doubt send them back to their mother’s basements where they’ll LARP (live-action roleplay) conjuring up demons and crying to themselves about not being able to murder babies in the womb. Yes, that’s right. The group of satanists lost a lawsuit they filed in Indiana to fight against the state’s ban on abortion. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for a celebration. Who knows how many lives will be saved as a result of this ban? It’s truly a work of God.
And that must absolutely infuriate the “other guy’s” team. It really does put a smile on my face.
According to the Daily Wire, Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson noted that the Satanic Temple itself does not actually run abortion clinics in the state and did not provide disclosure about specific members of the organization suffering from the ban.
“In sum, the Satanic Temple’s allegations fail to prove it has suffered any injury in fact,” the judge stated in her ruling.
Check out further details from the Daily Wire’s report:
The Satanic Temple sued in September 2022, alleging the abortion ban violates their members’ religious rights and is unconstitutional. Indiana’s abortion ban prohibits abortion at any point of pregnancy except when the woman’s life or health is seriously at risk, in cases of rape or incest, or when there is a “lethal fetal abnormality.”
Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita called the lawsuit “ridiculous” and said the win “sustains a pro-life law that is constitutionally and legally sound” in a statement Thursday.
“We Hoosiers continue to build a solid culture of life whether satanic cultists like it or not,” Rokita said.
As you might imagine, pro-lifers were absolutely thrilled by the decision. As they should be.
“BIG win for LIFE! If your ‘religion’ involves killing babies, you should find another religion,” wrote Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America.
The attorney representing the Satanic Temple expressed disappointment with the judge’s decision, but did not provide any information about whether or not they would appeal.
“It takes a desperate and irresponsible judge to refuse to hear our case because of a baffling refusal to accept that any of our membership in Indiana may get pregnant in the future,” Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the Satanic Temple, remarked about the decision.
The Satanic Temple has about 11,300 members in Indiana. Despite its name, members of The Satanic Temple do not actually believe in Satan — rather it is an atheist group that seeks to subvert Christianity’s role in American life. The group believes that “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone,” which includes a belief in abortion.
The Satanic Temple does not run any abortion clinics in Indiana, but it did launch a telehealth clinic out of New Mexico last year called “Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic,” a reference to the conservative Supreme Court justice.
And just to provide further context to help clarify the kind of people we are dealing with here, in 2022 The Satanic Temple came under fire for sponsoring “After School Satan” clubs. Why would this organization do such a thing? Well, obviously, to indoctrinate kids with their religious beliefs, which consist of doing whatever feels good and is in your own best interest.
However, they stated the purpose of the clubs was in response to the Christian Good News Clubs that can be found in public schools all over America.
