    Hey guys, I was thinking of joining the Satanic Temple. I've done some digging on them and I really like what they stand for. I talked to a few members who have told me that I can be a member while holding on to my pantheist beliefs.

    Just wondering if there are any members here?

    I really like what they do and stand for.

    Expect edgelord gatekeepers to tell you that it's not "authentic" satanism, though.

    There are some members running around. I think TST is awesome and I concur with much of what they're about.

    I've even contemplated joining. I probably won't as I have my own thing going. And some of my beliefs may be too kookie for them. :p

    I'm thinking of joining. As I'm a scientific pantheist, I don't see my beliefs clashing with theirs. And I love their message of compassion and fighting for social justice causes.

    I love the idea of modernizing Romantic Satanism in the face of political authoritarianism. I just don't think TST actually gets anywhere remotely close to that. It's a shame because the ideas and values are great, they just are ignored if not outright contradicted.

    You are all absolutely perfect for tst. It’s like it was designed just for you, with your precious feelings in mind. :rose:

    Because valuing liberty is emotional weakness. Real men embrace tyranny and sociopathy.

    Not a TST fan, no offence (I come from a traditional LaVeyan/Theistic/Setian/Nietzschean/Odinic school of thought). The only thing that I may had agreed from them was the whole abortion pro choice/pro life issue that came up many years ago. But me personally, I regard them as just a Leftist Social Justice organization. But hey if they float your boat, than be my guest.
