Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Americans Embracing Satanism at an Alarming Rate

church of satan

As attendance declines at Christian churches all over America, many Satanic groups are experiencing tremendous growth. For some, embracing Satanism is the ultimate form of rebellion, for others it is about making an anti-Trump political statement, and yet others claim that they are attracted by the very real power that they discover in Satanism.

Every week, bizarre rituals are conducted in basements, meeting halls and public facilities all over the country, and most Americans have absolutely no idea what is going on. Of course, most mainstream news articles about Satanists attempt to portray them as ordinary people who have simply been “misunderstood.” And ultimately that is what the Satanists are trying to do for Satan—they are trying to get all the rest of us to view Satan or Lucifer as a “misunderstood” being that only has humanity’s best interests at heart. And since the values of Satanism line up more accurately with the values of modern society than Christian values do, Satanists are finding increasing success in bringing in new recruits.

Today, there are Satanic churches just about everywhere.

….

Well, there is not a single national organization, but all major Satanic groups have claimed large increases in membership since the election of Donald Trump.

In particular, the Satanic Temple reported gaining “thousands” of new members within the first 36 hours of Trump’s victory…

The Satanic Temple attracted “thousands” of new members in just the first 36 hours after the election of Donald Trump, according to co-founder Lucien Greaves. The 4-year-old temple, which had a pre-Trump membership of around 50,000, has never before seen a spike in registration nearly this big.

“It’s crazy,” Greaves said after a speech in front of some adoring fans at CU-Boulder. The emails, registrations, donations and social media posts are pouring in faster than the temple can respond. “People have a desperate need for something to rally to right now.”

Right now, membership in the Satanic Temple is somewhere around 100,000, and it has become a hub for the anti-Trump resistance.

Of course most have joined various Satanic groups for spiritual reasons. Today there is a tremendous spiritual hunger in America, but Americans are also leaving traditional churches at a staggering pace. People are looking for authenticity, but they aren’t finding it in the traditional places, and so many are seeking out new options.

Unfortunately, an increasing number of Americans are deciding that Satanism is the answer, and that is a very, very troubling sign.

    Ugh, Satan sucks too. Why pick the nemesis of an over-all crappy “story”. Good cop/bad cop.

    I think most of these are theatre groups wanting to screw around and mock the Christians and make points about religion encroaching on state. Black mass/white mass what’s the difference it’s all nonsense.

    Many Satanists are avowed atheists who want the perks of being a religion. Yet most Christians, taught to fear Satan as a powerful spirit think he is real and that his followers are going to get special demonic powers. Lol. Most satanists don’t believe Satan is a real spirit any more than they believe Christian God is, but they appreciate the mythology.

    I love watching the fundies get their undies in a bunch….

    One of the things that drove me crazy into leaving Christianity is how how Christians say you have free will, but then with such blatant, insane, incredible hypocrisy, turn right around say you have to either serve God, or serve Satan and go to suffer forever in a fiery hell. It still drives me insane today, how Christians cannot see this insane contradiction!
