Satanic Temple in Ottawa to Hold First Public Black Mass in Canada

https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/satanic-temple-ottowa-hold-first-public-black-mass-canada


Just a bunch of goofs dressing up for the devil prince and probably non-believers hoping to get a decent drink deal. The Event is sold out. Are they serious? Are they just trolling the Christians? Could be a mix of both.

Would a black mass event get shut down if it was in SLC, UT?



From another link:

"They don’t proselytize, he said; people come to them. “It’s amazing to me how quickly that conversion can happen,” he said. “I was giving a lecture in Salt Lake City and was approached by a young man who’d been on his church mission when he watched some YouTube videos I was in, and he ended up deciding that Satanic Temple made a lot more sense.”

Seriously? Sounds stupid to me.

Sounds like part cosplay, part devil furry (no devil yipping I hope), and part making fun of the whole mass thing. I want to know if they plan to eat devil chocolate wafers with wine.

There's nothing like a parody to expose how weird something really is.

What some people won't do to party!

it's not a real black mass unless it's done by a real priest in a holy church. looks more like public shock value and a publicity stunt.

They've had several events in the US and have sued to put up Baphomet statues on public property to advocate for religious freedom.

They also drive the evangelicals totally nuts :)
