Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix (HSGP) Presents "The Gospel of Satan: The Satanic Temple’s War Against Theocracy" Presented by The Satanic Temple Spokesperson and Co-Founder Lucien Greaves

November 20th, 2017  7:00 PM through 9:00 PM
 627 W Rio Salado Parkway
Mesa, 85201
United States

Lucien Greaves will discuss how The Satanic Temple campaigns against theocracy in the United States.

As well-financed and organized Theocrats fight to establish a new Dark Ages, The Satanic Temple is on the front-lines fighting to defend Enlightenment values. Lucien Greaves explains non-theistic Satanism, The Satanic Temple's present campaigns, and the organization's vision for the future.

Advocating for acceptance of non-theistic religious exemption and privilege, TST has proven to be one of the nation’s most effective counter-balances against theocratic encroachments. The organization is best known for its ongoing efforts to place a Satanic monument next to a 10 Commandments monuments on public grounds, and its ongoing legal efforts to oppose reproductive rights restrictions nationwide (including Federal and State lawsuits in Missouri against the State's mandatory 72-hour abortion waiting period).

Greaves is an internationally recognized activist who has appeared in numerous high-profile media outlets including, MSNBC, NPR, Huffington Post Live, CNN, Harper’s Monthly, Newsweek, Fox News, Vice, Salon, Rolling Stone, and many more...

He has lectured nationwide and has been a featured speaker for national conferences held by American Atheists, Atheist Alliance, the Secular Student Alliance, and more.

Article about the event on For Infernal Use Only
January 23rd is the court date for oral arguments on the Missouri reproductive rights case before the state supreme court. The cool thing about this one is that he’s really trying to drive home the point that TST activism is religiously (though still non-theistically) motivated. He begins with comparing and contrasting what shared values exist between the constitution and TST’s 7 Tenets, and the woeful lack of shared value between the former and the 10 Commandments.
