Lucien Greaves to Tucker Carlson: Satanists “Do Have Affirmative Values”

"Carlson attempted to derail Greaves into a fight of counter-examples by saying he hasn’t “seen a single case of an Evangelical forcing any kind of bakery to bake a cake that violates the baker’s personal beliefs”. Greaves didn’t take the bait and stayed on his message, which was good. Denial of Accommodation Lawsuits Happen All the Time What Carlson is attempting to do there is ask for a specific set of circumstances which haven’t happened so any counter example can be dismissed as ‘not quite the same thing’. The broader issue is members of a religion suing a business...

Tucker Carlson to Triumphant Satanist: Go “Crawl Back Into Your Hole”

There’s a very good point being made here. While some states allow business owners to discriminate against customers on the basis of their sexual orientation, religion is usually a protected class.

TST AZ Wins Best Community Service Project – Phoenix New Times

This is the second year in a row TST-AZ has been given recognition from the Phoenix New Times News. In 2016 New Times awarded the chapter “Best Political Stunt” for requesting to give a City Council invocation, resulting in the City of Phoenix being forced to change it’s policy on prayers before meetings after a particularly outlandish public comment period. It's nice to see that we're not just a Stunt or Troll group to them anymore and are being recognized for our deeds and community outreach. One of Scottsdale's claims when they rejected our Invocation application was that we...
