    of course it's a lesser religion.. there's very few members in comparison to major religions.

    Sure less people follow Satanism, that is true but why would that mean it shouldn't be taken as seriously as religions like Christianity, Islam, Scientology, etc. ?

    should or shouldn't is irrelevant...

    it isn't... that's just the reality of it.


    be that at it may, my point is that their display won't be taken seriously.... most folks will either ignore it entirely, think they are trolling, or be offended... there's no benefit for the church of Satan
    they should be able to legally put put their display, no doubt about it... but to think they will be taken seriously is simple wishful thinking.

    Atheist doesn't simply mean a person doesn't believe in your god, it means belief in no gods. True Satanists see Lucifer as a deity equal to, if not superior to YWHW. Satanists believe in the Abrahamic god's existence but that it is not worthy of their worship.
    Is that what the subject Satanists of this thread believe? I honestly don't believe they have the wit or understanding of any of this.

    That would make it smaller, not lesser.

    It can be both, depending on the context. But who are we to nitpick?

    Some person took it seriously enough to damage the Satanic Temple's display
