Satanic Temple Member Opens Government Meeting in Alaska with “Hail Satan” – Prompting Officials to Walk Out
A member of the Satanic Temple opened a government meeting in Soldotna, Alaska by declaring “Hail Satan” which prompted over a dozen officials to walk out.
Thanks to policy changes forced by the anti-American ACLU, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that Satanists are now able to offer ‘prayers’ before government meetings.
Fox News reported:
The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly’s previous policy stated that those delivering the invocation must be a member of a recognized church, but the rules were changed last October when Alaska’s Supreme Court decided in favor of the ACLU that the policy was unconstitutional, according to Alaskan Public Media.
Iris Fontana, the Satanic Temple member, was one of the plaintiffs in the case. An atheist and a Jewish woman were also involved in the lawsuit.
“Let’s cast aside our differences, to use reason, logic, science and compassion to create solutions for the greater good of our community,” Fontana said at the end of the invocation. “It is done. Hail Satan. Thank you.”
Several people walked out of the meeting, according to a local reporter for the Peninsula Clarion.
“God will be pleased with our public prayers of reparation,” a man who flew from Pennsylvania for the event told KSRM radio. “We want God’s blessings on America, not Satan’s curses. Lucifer is the eternal loser. Let’s keep him out.”
Recall, Obama’s IRS expedited granting tax-exempt status to The Reason Alliance which is a Massachusetts group that worships Satan and created an after school Satanic club for elementary schools. They received their tax-exempt status by the IRS within 10 days of applying while Tea Party and Christian groups waited years.
The IRS also recently gave the Satanic Temple tax-exempt status, identifying it as a “church.” This is why Satanists are now able to invoke “Satan” at government meetings.
