We have all seen and experienced the injustices of the world and we united because we want to make a positive difference in the world where all religions are respected, where women’s rights are not violated, and where our personal sovereignty is respected. – Mischief Madness

Rarely do I ever get to travel just for fun, it usually is for work, but this time I had myself a nice little vacation to Salem, Massachusetts to visit my family from The Satanic Temple. My fellow TST AZ Chapter Head Stu and I took a few days to visit the founders of TST and some of the other Chapter Heads. Other than Stu, this trip was the first time I had met these people in person but we had been keeping in contact since the beginning of the year. It felt like coming home to people I had known and loved my whole life.

We were all weird in our own ways, yet open minded to our quirks and awkwardness. We have all made similar sacrifices to the same cause. We all have experienced the vitriol first hand from those who would silence our voices and disenfranchise us. Going to Salem and seeing the historic monuments erected to the victims of the Salem Witch Trials also strengthened our convictions that what we are doing is necessary. The country is teetering going back to the Dark Ages with fundamentalists pushing their religious agendas and using their faith to discriminate others.

We have all seen and experienced the injustices of the world and we united because we want to make a positive difference in the world where all religions are respected, where women’s rights are not violated, and where our personal sovereignty is respected. We are Satanists and we worship through activism. Here is a video of a super fun day we had at the beach!
