the-satanic-temple

why my chem teacher is the most dad™ teacher and all-around coolest ever

- spent 5 minutes one day complaining about the transition effects and lame fonts on the old chem teacher’s lecture slides

- had us take a survey the first day of school in which he included a question about being stuck on a desert island with justin bieber

- while teaching us nomenclature conventions for alkanes, pointed at “pent-” and said “obviously you show know some of these already; if you’re a satanist you probably know what a pentagram is,” opened a discussion of temple of satan vs. satanic temple, and said he’d be interested in joining the satanic temple one day 

- a lecture slide on calorimetry included a picture of a bomb calorimeter, which he explained in depth, then held up a styrofoam cup and said “here’s a public school calorimeter”

- someone asked a question about when electronegativity becomes polar, so he pulled up a spectrum running from non-polar to ionic and said “it’s a spectrum. like gender. you know how some people think a person is a girl even if they say they’re a guy and vice versa? there are still non-polar bonds with high electronegativity and people think they should be polar but just because they have a certain electronegativity doesn’t mean they’re polar. pls be understanding of ur covalent kids.” 

- uses a yardstick instead of a pointer

- waves said yardstick around frequently, mostly for no reason. 

- once said (ironically) that he saw less and less bullying in classrooms now and that was a bit disappointing even though it was good. added that “if i had to suffer then you all do too” in a bitter tone of voice. when a english teacher walked in and asked him why he was waving the yardstick around he said it was because he was reminiscing on the bullying days.

- couple of us asked if we should get a new periodic table to take the test with since we’d written all over ours. he said no because if we’re smart enough to think ahead and cheat then we deserve the a.

- actually has a degree in philosophy. he’s so fucking nerdy

- he bikes to school everyday and then carries his bike up two flights of stairs to his classroom

- sometimes during tests he pulls a bagel and peanut butter out of his desk and eats them while watching us silently

- this one time we walked into class and he’d shaved off his half-beard into a mustache and when we asked why he said “i’m not a huge fan of it but my wife likes it so i do it for her” 

- used the trump supporter kid’s logic against him without explicitly expressing his political views so no one can actually get him fired

- complains to our class about how much he hates us

- explained catalytic converters to us once, then pointed at me with the yardstick and said “barrett you’re gonna love this because it involves carbon monoxide and like, suffocating yourself”

- i started crying once in class and he literally refused to give me the test because he didn’t think it would be fair to make me test while having an anxiety attack so he sent me into the lab and closed the classroom door and let me ugly cry. i kept begging him to let me take the test tho so he sighed and said “im ur dad right now not ur teacher please don’t take the test just light some incense and listen to some reggae or something and chill”

- i used pig’s blood in my chem internal assessment and when i asked him where i could store it overnight he shrugged and was like “i guess put it in the fridge in the teacher’s lounge and i’ll just tell people not to drink your blood”

- he knows our class so well it’s a little scary. predicts exactly what’s going to happen in certain circumstances with like 100% accuracy

- this one girl in my class didn’t finish her homework but we submit in through pictures on google classroom so she sent in a picture of her dog and he accepted it and gave it 10/10

The Satanic Temple’s Seven Fundamental Tenents

  1. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
  2. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
  3. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  4. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
  5. Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
  6. People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
  7. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

Yuuri: why did we come here again?

Phichit: you really think we’re going to do well in the tournament without some divine intervention? Look, I already visited the local churches, mosque, synagogue, Satanic temple, scientology center, kingdom hall…AND I tweeted @ Kanye. Just covering all the basics. 

Satanism gets a bad rap even though most Satanists don’t even believe in a devil figure and often identify as such to make a philosophical and political point. I’ve got no fondness for LaVeyan Satanism, but organizations like The Satanic Temple are pretty much low-key civil liberty groups using the First Amendment to fight against oppressive theocratic legislation.

  • Kawahara: Wait, why did we come here again?
  • Furihata: You really think we’re gonna win against Rakuzan without some kind of divine intervention? Look, I already visited the local church, mosque, synagogue, satanic temple, scientologist center, kingdom hall, and I tweeted to Kanye. Just covering all the bases.

The Satanic Temple and the 1st Amendment

Yeah.

Oklahoma Statue Temple harass Temples of Satan's Founder Reverend Tom Erik Raspotnik's 80 year old father!

PRESS RELEASE

The Satanic Temple and the Real Estate Attorney harassment of a eighty year old stroke survivor.

Permission is granted by Reverend Tom Erik Raspotnik Leader of Theistic Satanism for forwarding and or printing to media sources and blogs.

I have been involved with many others in the personal “mud slinging” both for offense and defense for several years all in an attempt to identify and purge Satanism of pedophiles, and sex offenders keeping Satanists safe from the ilk that clouds other religions, but I would never have expected my own father to become a target of The Satanic Temple, but one could only expect such behaviors from the same group that desecrated a grave in a false Satanic Ritual and then launched a failed road “clean up effort” and now another failed project the Oklahoma Statue Project which is tabled due to Oklahoma State Licensing.

Serving my father who does not even reside at the address so named in what I believe was a frivolous and misaligned “cease and diciest” letter shows the level of malcontent that the Founder Master Scam Artist of The Satanic Temple has for a true leader religious leader.

But lets examine a few pertinent facts presented here in my opinion and from eye witness reports and confidential conversations with former Satanic Temple members:

  1. The Satanic Temple has hired a attorney in the field of Real Estate and Alcoholism and Drug Defense and it showed in his letter since it was so haphazardly prepared that it was suspect to be actually a false letter.

  2. This same attorney (if he really is involved or just a friend of the founder) is so inept in his study of law that he claims he can seize property in a lien, when the property is located in another state and is owned by someone not involved in any law suit, this can be deemed frivolous and according to the Temples of Satan Attorney who is a Internet Attorney could be converted into a counter suit pursuant with Michigan Law form Harassment.

  3. Furthermore since all the statements presented are opinion based or taken from various sources including actual court documentation and records, a slander or liable lawsuit would hold no weight in a Michigan Court especially from a attorney based in Massachusetts.


I being a local business person for years would entertain the court room drama in my own arena and of course having the high ground of being the home team, and my father a elderly non involved person would make a case and veritable “uphill battle”, but I would suspect the founder of The Satanic Temple might put some the Statue Donation fund into the “Attack an Eighty Year Old Real Satanist’s Father.”

I regret to inform the Founder I have great amount of support for what I am doing and I will turn any further attempts to harass my father into a media spectacle and find all family members of the founder and friends and expose jobs and family members and crimes as they are doing my father equally, I would expect most Atheists like the founder of The Satanic Temple to not understand such ramifications to harassment of a magicians parents, but I can say more than one person lies in some dirt from such an altercation.

But then again the Temples of Satan has its own Internet Specialty Attorney which I am sure could dance well in Michigan with an out of state Real Estate Attorney!

I have no level of fear of frivolous lawsuits myself, since all information is presented in a opinion based manner and is based on actual events, records and public information all obtainable by any member of the public.

The founder of The Satanic Temple should remember as he desired to pursue the freedom to erect a statue in Oklahoma he is impeding upon my Freedom of Speech should he pursue actual “cease and diciest” arguments in a Michigan Court.

But lets examine this important factor, that the founder refuses to address, which again makes him very suspect and pairs him with criminals.

  1. Kelsey Daniels is married to convicted Sex Offender Adam B. Daniels and both have open warrants in Massachusetts for Child Stalking and Harassment, Kelsey signed the founders paper allowing him to open the discussion for moving the Oklahoma Statue ahead.

  2. Most Church leaders actual investigate the backgrounds of those involved in what the uniformed public seems to think is an important religious project.

  3. Adam B. Daniels was allowed to speak on National Television for The Satanic Temple claiming to be immersed in the project, while the Satanic Temple claims they were unaware the interview seem very informative of what the Satanic Temple is all about.

  4. I and many others have noticed the founder has not chosen alternate representation in Oklahoma which points to him have a much deeper association with the convicted Sex Offender Adam B Daniels.

  5. The founder seems to be involved in deep personal attacks aimed at those who criticize his now failed project “Oklahoma has rejected all future permits on statuary.” and with such a failure now is focused on the “blame game” and personal attacks which included my eighty year old father who suffered a recent stroke and is in a convalescent home setting, not at the address listed on his letter to my father.

  6. Guilt is by association and those truly engaged in community projects are often posed with questionable acquaintances but then professional organizations also vet those who come aboard for important projects, and often as they are exposed they release all relationships and often condemn the former in the media distancing themselves from undesirable people, the founder refuses to do such and attacks people who oppose his “now failed” statue project.

  7. Organizations that specify projects completions and or goals that are actually legit will most always refund to those who donate their original funds and issue public apologies, but instead the founder has decided to pursuit attacks against me and others.

While one can suspect many thinks about me or even the founder of Satanic Temple, all of the above content is based on opinions and accounts provided confidentially and has a large body of evidence supporting it.

“Eye for an Eye.”

Stay tuned as I provide an insight in to life of the founder of The Satanic Temple and his family and friends I am sure it will make some great reads and perhaps you can go and visit these people who are so seeking to attack and eighty year old recovering stroke victim.

I am going to show people Real Satanism, not Atheism dressed in Halloween Clothing.

Review Of 'The Satanic Temple'

The Satanic Temple, the same group of Satanists striving for a monument of Baphomet in Oklahoma on state property right next to the Christian ‘Ten Commandments.’ A group seemingly new to the world and a temple already with a name as big as Anton LaVey’s– but could this be their downfall?

This temple is the most social working Satanical temple/church I have ever witnessed. They do not focus on staying under the radar, trying to avoid the hatred, covering their Satanic ways– no, they push forward out into the light of the world, showing everyone that Satanists exist and we do have voices.

The belief system seems to be Atheistic as the temple has LaVeyan tendencies and inspirations, though the belief is unclear as it also describes Agnostic Satanism and Theistic Satanism as beliefs as well. This leads me to understand that this is a temple that accepts all kinds of Satanists as long as said Satanists have the same idea and goal: Standing strong against the tyranny of the current world and venturing forth to find one’s enlightenment.

They use a version of Satan to represent their group known as the 'Humanistic Satan’, a Satan that would do all in his will, even sacrifice his Heavenly position and power, just so Humanity can enjoy life materialistically and physically.

Now here comes my opinion.

Their goals for the individual Satanist is almost nonexistent, they spread “goals” for the individual to pursue all throughout their writings, but it is all the same one goal just written in several different ways. This temple simply has no care for the individual compared to their care of the entirety of the Satanism Community.

Yes, the Satanism Community is important and is in need of dramatic improvement, but one cannot change his/her surroundings and environment without first changing themselves. The base of community problems must start with the individuals within said community. The Satanic Temple has no focus on this, instead what this temple does is push into the minds of people that Satanism needs to get out, it needs to spread, it needs to be public, it needs to be seen by all people. Over and over this is addressed as if they are wanting to pound it into your subconscious; what they may be doing at this time may seem to be a breakthrough or revolutionary but that’s exactly what happened with Christianity. Christians were told to spread the word, find anyone who was not a Christian and change that fact, to stop at nothing until non-Christian hearts were “saved” from their “terrible” lives.

Right now, the religion of Satanism is so disbanded, so argumentative, so very confused with how it should be ran and what beliefs to hold that it is a problem within itself. The temple is not helping society by showing a minority religion breaking into the light, it is only bringing a giant problem on stage in front of millions upon millions of eyes and ears to witness.

Will this be their downfall, will this path that the temple has taken bring all of us Satanists respect and recognition, or will it only throw us into an even darker pit in the eyes of society? Will this be our downfall?

Though not an official member of the Church of Satan Victorious (he already had more social obligations than he could manage), Baby Gruenwald was delighted by the crocodile-headed entrance to the sparkling new Family Groveling Center, and would linger there admiring its enormous teeth whenever work would find him in that corner of the Sonoran Desert.
