Today Was A National Tragedy
To everyone heartbroken, angry, devastated, or terrified after today’s Supreme Court ruling,
You are not alone. Today we suffer a national tragedy, the ramifications of which will steal many lives and devastate even more. It is a dark day in this country, and everyone in our Satanic community grieves alongside you.
Those six conservative justices were motivated by the depraved heart of their cruel god. They hid behind a willful ignorance of science and history. They acted with malicious disregard for legal precedent. They undermined the legitimacy of the nation’s highest court.
The post-Trump Robert’s court has once again made it clear that there is no justice, only partisanship and unbridled malice for The People and the rule of law. Their reckless disregard for actual human life is unconscionable. It has become clear that nothing, not even judicial precedent nor the Constitution, can stand in the way of the six conservative justice’s Christian agenda.
You are not alone in your pain, shock, hopelessness, fear, and anger. It might feel like the world is crashing down around you, and there’s nothing you can do. Unfortunately, the federal government is unwilling to protect our rights. The Supreme Court is partisan, and if the Democrats in Congress take action to protect our rights, they lose one of their most important campaign rally cries. Fuck them all. This fight belongs in the states now. But, in the meantime, we must find ways to aid the individuals who need immediate help.
These are dark times, and things will get a lot worse before they get better, but the fight is not over yet.
Please, remember to take care of yourself, and if you can, check in with the people you love.
Hail You, Hail Lilith, and Hail Satan!
TST Tenets to hold in your heart today:
I. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.
II. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
III. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
V. Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.
The Judiciary is the strongest branch of the American government, and the Founders tried to create an impartial and non-political court. Still, McConnell found a way to prevent Merrick Garland’s confirmation. Then, a president who lost the popular vote nominated three partisan judges who were chosen because they wanted to strike down Roe v. Wade. They were confirmed by senators representing a minority of Americans. These judges have lifetime appointments and can reasonably be expected to serve another 25 to 30 years. (Justice Kennedy retired at age 82, and RBG died at 87. Gorsuch is 54. Kavanaugh is 57. Barrett is 50.) And they have proven themselves to be highly partisan. FUCK.
