The more I learn about Satanism, the less horrendous it seems. Not even kidding.
That’s cause non-theistic Satanism is more about worshipping yourself and sorta treating others how you want to be treated etc
satanism is actually really solid like the Fifth Satanic Rule of the Earth says not to make sexual advances unless you are given consent
satan seems like a pretty nice guy
This week on “I didn’t know I was a Satanist”
Wait till you hear the Nine Satanic Sins
5. Herd conformity
6. Lack of perspective
7. Forgetfulness of past orthodoxies
8. Counterproductive pride
9. Lack of aesthetics
That’s right. If you ain’t got no style, you be sinning.
and this is why i fucking hate people. if you dont know about something, dont fucking talk shit. if you judge somebody for something you know nothing about, you are complete shit to me.
Salvation Army ‘Does Not Consider Homosexual Orientation a Sin’
The Salvation Army removed two links to organizations that advocate so-called ex-gay or reparative therapy from its website Tuesday, after LGBT organization Truth Wins Out contacted the charity group about the supposed endorsement of the scientifically discredited practice that aims to turn gay people straight.
"We thank the Salvation Army for acting swiftly and decisively in addressing our concerns about links to ‘ex-gay’ organizations," said Truth Wins Out executive director Wayne Besen. “This is a step in the right direction and congruent with their antidiscrimination campaign. We hope this action leads to further progress in gaining the full confidence and trust of the LGBT community.”
In a letter sent to Truth Wins Out Tuesday, the Salvation Army’s director of communications claimed the “ex-gay” links were part of an archived page that was inadvertently republished when the organization relaunched its site last month.
"We apologize for our oversight and any confusion this may have caused," said Jennifer Byrd in the letter, published at Truth Wins Out. "The Salvation Army does not consider homosexual orientation a sin. Please know that we serve anyone who comes to our doors without discrimination."
The offending links, posted under the site’s resource list for dealing with “sexual addictions,” included Harvest USA, which bills itself as a “ministry committee to offering hope in Jesus to men and women struggling with sexual brokenness and sin.” The second resource, Pure Life Ministries, boasts 35 full-time “biblical counselors and support staff” who its website promises are dedicated to “bringing the hope, healing, and restoration found only in Christ to those who have been touched by the leprosy of sexual sin.” Pure Life’s website notes that most of its counselors and staff are themselves “graduates” of the faith-based counseling programs.
Both organizations advocate the scientifically discredited practice of “reparative therapy,” which aims to turn gay people straight through prayer and counseling. Reparative or “ex-gay” therapy has been disavowed by every major medical and psychological organization in the country, and its use by licensed therapists on minors has been outlawed in California and New Jersey.
"Harvest USA and Pure Life Ministries are two destructive organizations dedicated to demonizing LGBT people," Truth Wins Out associate director Evan Hurst said in a statement. "The Salvation Army did the right thing today by removing these ‘ex-gay’ groups from its website before they could harm more innocent victims."
The Salvation Army, a Christian organization, has had a strained relationship with the LGBT population. In 2011, several LGBT advocates called for a boycott of donations to the Salvation Army’s iconic bell-ringers collecting change outside storefronts in red buckets, citing allegations that the evangelical charity refused to serve LGBT people because it considered them “sexually impure,” according to NBC.
But Tuesday’s statement from the Salvation Army’s director of communication indicates an apparent shift in tone, as the organization strives to fulfill its new antidiscrimination policy, which prohibits the denial of services or employment based on race, religion, ancestry, national origin, sex, or sexual orientation.
due to all the anti-Salvation Army posts I’ve seen lately, I feel like this should be seen because they’ve addressed the allegations and made steps to repair the damage so now we can continue to donate to them and help people in need and know they’re not facing discrimination from them.

A gay couple in Oklahoma found a way to bypass the state’s same-sex marriage ban by obtaining a marriage license from the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes on October 18. Since state laws do not apply on sovereign Native-American land, Jason Pickel called the tribe after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act to inquire if he and his boyfriend Darren Black Bear could get married. Both Pickel and Black Bear are members of the tribe and the marriage was allowed because the tribe’s legal code does not specify gender. Read The Stream’s storify on the event here.
