LIBERALS TURN TO SATANISTS TO MAINTAIN ABORTION LAW
Below are several articles that describe liberals’ most recent strategy to retain abortion rights in our nation. How have we come to this? Our American system of law is based upon common law, which presupposes Biblical reality. If that supposition crumbles, so does our system of law. Continue reading to find out how this belief has been slowly eroded throughout some of our most important institutions.
Excerpt from BPR. Article by Ashley Hill:
Texas’ recent bill banning most abortions after six weeks may be upended by perhaps the most unexpected group of all, religious zealots who embrace the name Satan.
The Satanic Temple has established a “religious abortion ritual” that they claim will be trampled on given the Texas law enacted in May that bans abortions at six weeks once a baby’s heartbeat can be detected.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 does generally prohibit government involvement in the exercise of a person’s religion and 21 states have enacted such laws in their respective states including Texas..
The Satanic Temple has leapt to their congregant’s defense in supporting abortion, denouncing the new law on social media and explaining that they will continue to provide the Satanic Abortion Ritual within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy…
TST stands ready to assist any member who shares our deeply-held religious convictions regarding the right to reproductive freedom. Accordingly, we encourage any member who resides in TX and wishes to undergo the Satanic Abortion Ritual within the first 24 weeks of pregnancy(1/3)
— The Satanic Temple (@satanic_temple_) September 3, 2021
The group describes it as “a ceremony rooted in our deeply-held beliefs…The performance of the Satanic abortion ritual is protected by religious liberty laws. It exempts Satanists from fulfilling any medically unnecessary and unscientific requirement, such as mandatory waiting periods or unwanted sonograms, that interferes with the practice of our ritual.”…
Excerpt from Gateway Pundit. Article by Cassandra Fairbanks:
The Satanic Temple is trying to fight the new abortion laws in Texas by arguing that it violates their “religious freedom” to “abortion rituals.”
Lucien Greaves, the Temple’s spokesman and cofounder, argued in a letter to the Food and Drug Administration that access to abortion drugs…must be allowed under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to be used for their “Abortion Rituals.”…
[T]he Satanic Temple said that “Satanists are exempt from these regulations if they undergo first-trimester abortions in accordance with TST’s religious ritual…”
Their latest move is unlikely to work based on the decision in Employment Division, Department of Human Resources of Oregon v. Smith. In that case, the Supreme Court ruled that the state could deny unemployment benefits to a person fired for violating a state prohibition on the use of peyote, even if used during part of a religious ritual…
Excerpt from WND. Article by Bob Unruh:
…Judical Watch, which has fought for the public’s right to know how government money is spent…said it has obtained documents from the academy revealing in 2014 and 2015, the military school used its “Chapel Tithes and Offering Fund” for some pretty exotic expenditures.
The funds were used for worship services featuring witchcraft, the “Faery Magick,” voodoo and more, including a trip from cadets to a Wiccan festival in Denver and a Denver Witches Ball, the report said.
The category of government accounting the money came from is described as being funded by “free-will donations,” and…”an instrumentality of the United States government,” Judicial Watch reported.
“The Air Force Academy leadership is attacking traditional Christian beliefs but will fund witchcraft and ‘faery magick’?” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton….
The watchdog said it had obtained a brochure explaining that the “Spiritual Programs in Religious Education” held events at the chapel grounds, which the Air Forces calls a “worship area…”
In response to an October 2015 Freedom of Information Act request…the watchdog was told the academy paid $260 in 2014 for “worship-supplies-fellowship” to “Living Earth” for things related to a “Festival.”…
Also, Chapel Tithes and Offering Funds were used to pay for registration and meals for two students to go to the 2014 “Earth Centered Beltania Festival,” the group said…
There, attendees are encouraged to “dance with ecstasy around the maypole,” “drum with the heartbeat of Mother Earth” and “conjure springtime within nature and yourself.”
Another $120 was spent by the academy for fees for four students to go to the 23rd annual Denver Witches Ball, held in Denver…
“In 2013, the Air Force Academy made ‘so help me God’ optional to its cadet oath…The Family Research Council (FRC) has been keeping a record of incidents of hostility to religion within the armed services: ‘Unfortunately, pressures to impose a secular, anti-religious culture on our nation’s military services have intensified tremendously during the Obama administration…,'” the report said.
