Sacrifice your eternal soul…
…just kidding. We don’t believe in “souls”, just like we don’t believe in God or Satan. For us, Satanism is an atheistic religion rooted in humanistic compassion, scientific understanding, and the embrace of all of the flaws, quirks, and radical artistries that can emerge from a free and open human mind.
We have a strong sense of morality that springs from our religious conviction that humans must be free to be the gods of their own desires and path in life. We have deeply held values and beliefs about what it means to respect our fellow beings and strive for justice in the world. We adopt the fictional character Satan as a symbol of rebellion against ignorance and arbitrary authority. We call this a religion because we don’t believe it is right to privilege one set of moral beliefs over another simply because some people’s morals are tied to an irrational faith in spirits or ghosts or any other supernatural entity.
If you have read and agree with all of this, then you may be a Satanist.
In addition to upholding the tenets and mission of the national organization, TST Dallas as a local chapter is committed to maintaining an environment of respect and support both at in-person events and online.
Misogyny, transphobia, racism, anti-semitism, ableism, or bigotry of any kind have no place in TST Dallas.
Official Membership to The Satanic Temple-Dallas Chapter is a privilege that requires commitment on behalf of its members.
We never want official membership to be a burden on anyone but we do require members to be available for discussion and work on our various campaigns and endeavors (both online and offline). If you are not interested in our religious endeavors and sociopolitical causes, please do not ask to be an official member.
New to Satanism and/or the Left Hand Path?
You should minimally understand what TST is, and what TST is not. We are not an educational organization. We love to learn and share our knowledge with each other, but we are not here to teach you about Satanism. TST generously shares knowledge, resources, and original content through our sites and social media. We don’t expect you to be an expert, but we do assume you are self-motivated when it comes to learning. The more obvious it is that you are putting in effort to learn, the more likely it is that people will be willing to help you learn more.
If you are interested in simply chatting with people about Satanism and learning more, then please join our Friends of TST – Dallas Facebook group. It is strongly suggested to join the group if you are interested in officially joining as well, because we post all of our public events there and the forum is a GREAT way to get to know our community.
If you are a journalist or researcher looking for an interview, then please visit our contact page.
However, if you are seriously considering joining our chapter of The Satanic Temple here in Dallas, then please fill out the form below. Typically we will reach out to you once we’ve met you in person at one of our events, and reviewed your application.
