They don't believe in satan as a real being (first sign of denial or ignorance), just raw 'satanic bible' fallen antichrist activism. Why would they do the black mass (though dumbed down)-which would be a hate crime against the catholic religion- and NOT have any power, demonic favors or ability to war against their enemies? Are they really satanists? or have they just hijacked satanic symbolism, jargon and banners as part of the deep down undealt with anger they-the leaders- have. Just raw anger that is ultimately vented against Christianity on a political activist level? ...
The only real passion they seem to have is to try and anoy Christians/churches, shock society with its fake blood and guts satanic rituals and it would also seem they LOVE the slaughter of bibles. The are ardent abortionists. maybe they really are satanists? rd

The Satanic Temple that has made headlines nationwide for its highly confrontational political displays calls Salem home. The Track went behind the scenes to get a glimpse at the group’s local headquarters and see what life’s like for the Satanists next door.
“When we first got here, I was concerned about revealing our presence, that there might be an angry mob with pitchforks and torches,” co-founder Lucien Greaves told the Track of the house on Bridge Street. “But we did an open house and invited neighbors to come and sit down and chat with us. We answered any of their questions, in case they were concerned.”
Amid the witchy hoopla of downtown Salem, the international headquarters occupies an antique home that — save for a façade of pitch-black clapboard — looks unassuming. On the front porch hangs a wreath of kindling in the shape of a goat head. Inside, it’s every goth teen’s Victorian dream home. A grand yet chilling staircase stands in the entryway, off of which branch rich rooms decorated with elegantly creepy touches like heavy, dark carved woodwork, velvet damask wallpaper and glass display cases filled with twisted artifacts.
