"Lucifer gave the signal for the onset and led the assault." —The Revolt of the Angels, by Anatole France
The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence, empathy, common sense and justice. We have delved into the ancient mythos of humanity, the fantasies we have told ourselves for eons, and chosen Satan as the fictional character whom we most admire: not willing to bow down to arbitrary authority and not content to live without knowledge.
We are community artists and activists, and we are proud to live in Dallas. It is more important now than ever to stand up and be seen and heard as individuals. Hail freedom, hail humanity, hail Satan.
