Elizabeth Johnston Website – The Satanic Temple is taking an advertising company to court over its refusal to run billboards touting the group’s “ religious abortion ritual,” which it claims help Satanists bypass abortion regulations in some states.
By categorizing abortion as a religious ritual, TST claims that its followers can claim religious exemption from such state regulations as mandatory waiting periods, counseling, ultrasounds, and more.
In the suit, TST alleges that Lamar refused to run eight billboards in Arkansas and Indiana promoting the “ritual,” which the group describes as a “sacramental act that confirms the right of bodily autonomy.”
TST says in the suit that the group submitted five designs to Lamar to be put up near pro-life pregnancy centers.
In one design, a bowl of cake batter is labeled “not a cake,” while an image of a sperm and egg joining is labeled “not a baby,” declaring that “Our religious abortion ritual averts many state restrictions.”
According to the suit, Lamar rejected the billboards, claiming that their content was “misleading and offensive.”
In the raffle, Satanists could enter to win an abortion voucher worth up to $2,500, a Zoom meet-and-greet with TST co-founder Lucien Greaves, assorted TST merchandise, or a “ religious abortion kit” consisting of a TST compact mirror and a ritual instruction sheet.
The minimum donation required to win the free abortion voucher was $200.
The Satanic abortion ritual provides spiritual comfort and affirms bodily autonomy, self-worth, and freedom from coercive forces with the affirmation of TST’s Seven Tenets. The ritual is not intended to convince a person to have an abortion. Instead, it sanctifies the abortion process by instilling confidence and protecting bodily rights when undergoing the safe and scientific procedure.
If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
