Not crazy. NOT. No, really. I mean it.
The Death Of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Pushed Me To Join The Satanic Temple
See? NOT crazy. Just a perfectly normal, sane reaction to the death of a sickly, feeble, 87 year old woman who had been battling cancer for years— a woman you never even met, no less.
I am a 40-something attorney and mother who lives in a quiet neighborhood with a yard and a garage full of scooters and soccer balls. I often walk with my children to get ice cream and spend weekends hiking through a national park. I am not the type of person who would normally consider becoming a Satanist, but these are not normal times.
And YOU are not a normal person.
Like so many other women in the United States, when I learned of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, my first reaction was not grief but fear. I fear that American citizens are inching closer to living in a theocracy or dictatorship and that the checks meant to prevent this from happening are close to eroding beyond repair.
Those checks having been eroded by…let’s see now, which side is it that’s been hacking away at the Constitution, the Founders, and the idea of limited government since its inception, anyway? Remind me, if you would, I’m having trouble remembering.
When Justice Ginsburg died, I knew immediately that action was needed on a scale we have not seen before. Our democracy has become so fragile that the loss of one of the last guardians of common sense and decency in government less than two months before a pivotal election has put our civil and reproductive rights in danger like never before.
Common sense. Decency. Government. One of these things is not like the other, dearie.
And, so, I have turned to Satanism.
Well, what the hell else were you supposed to do? I mean, really now, who WOULDN’T have?
Members of the Satanic Temple do not believe in the supernatural or superstition. In the same way that some Unitarians and some Jews do not believe in God, Satanic Temple members do not worship Satan and most are atheists. They are not affiliated in any way with the Church of Satan. Instead, the Satanic Temple uses the devil as a symbol of rebellion.
Just like other faiths,
Nice to see that little back-door acknowledgement of atheism as another “faith,” babe.
the Satanic Temple has a code that their members believe in deeply and use to guide their lives. These Seven Fundamental Tenets include that “one should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason,” that “the struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions,” and that “one’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”
Reading through the Seven Tenets, I was struck by how closely they aligned with the unwritten code I had used to try to guide my own life for several years. I realized, happily, that these were my people and that I had been a Satanist for several years without even knowing it.
Oh, I can one-hundred-percent assure you that Satanists are “your people” all right. In fact, for Leftists, they always have been.
In the hours after Justice Ginsburg’s death, I sat wondering what the future would hold for my daughters.
If they turn out like Mom, I’d say their future includes: nihilism; narcissicism; mindless, directionless hedonism; intellectual vapidity; dissatisfaction; an aimless, selfish existence bereft of real fulfillment, contentment, and enduring happiness.
Oh, and lots and lots and lots of abortions, denying you any grandchildren; your genetic line will end with them, for which the rest of us can only be thankful. Any cultural and intellectual influence you may have had will die with your daughters—washed away like footprints in the surf, your personal legacy wafted away like dandelion fluff on a stiff breeze. A tragedy for you, a boon for Mankind.
One more thing, since I’m tired of having to wade through the HuffPo muck and am not going to waste any more time on it. Given the incredible frustration, angst, and just plain misery even the possibility of losing an election creates for you people because of the grotesque, all-encompassing importance of politics it suggests, you Progtards might want to reconsider that old “the personal is political” slogan of yours, I’m thinking.
I’m just laughing my ass off at this. These people are not only stupid, they are guilty of the worst sin of all, they don’t know they’re stupid and proudly parade it in front of everyone.
I just wish they would start believing in suicide, and act upon their beliefs.
Amazing how ignorant these people are, isn’t it? This woman imagines America is one supreme court vote away from a ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ type theocracy where women are chattel sex slaves to horrible, horrible, Christofascist white males. Atwood’s fantasy has nothing to do with actual Christianity, of course, while closely resembling Islam’s treatment of women. That same Islam is of course fully supported by leftist morons like this woman, who see it as a useful “ally” against western civilization. The complete lack of self awareness is the only thing keeping the cognitive dissonance from reaching meltdown levels.
I do take some small comfort in knowing that this woman will never, ever be happy. Even if her side “wins” it will result in exactly the theocracy and enslavement she claims to fear. We at least have some small hope of victory, however faint that hope may be. She is guaranteed to lose, and does not even realize she is doing it to herself.
“…this woman will never, ever be happy.”
We have all kinds of names for the generations. We can lump several of them together as the miserable generation, self induced.
