Wake Up and Smell the Satan! June 1, 2018

The Satanic Temple this week announced litigation against Twitter, alleging religious discrimination related to the suspension and lack of account verification. Its statement to supporters details the matter:

Marc J. Randazza of the Randazza Legal Group, PLLC, representing TST for this case further stated: “When Twitter installed its Orwellian-named ‘Trust and Safety Council,’ free speech advocates sensed immediately that this would become a censorship board. However, none of us could have predicted exactly how discriminatory and arbitrary Twitter would be. Twitter has decided who it disfavors, politically, ethnically, and religiously, and they get significantly less free expression rights on Twitter than its favored groups. Enough is enough. Satanists are equal to any other religious adherents under the law and deserve to be treated equally. If Twitter disagrees, then it should be prepared to explain why its ‘Trust and Safety Council’ believes that it should favor one religion over another – consistent with the Civil Rights laws.”

You may recall the law firm from its defense of neo-Nazis, use of anti-Native American slurs, and CodePink. More on this case soon, surely.

Earlier this year, Behemoth issued an in-full performance of its legendary album The Satanist, recorded in its home country before a live crowd. Messe Noire is the resulting audio/visual package and the results are quite stunning if you enjoy Behemoth. “O Father O Satan O Sun” and other classics are featured, of course, as its the band’s usual theatrics.
