Gruntington Post, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, Good Friday, 2016 – We keep making history here in the Good Ol’ USA, whether we want to or not. Last Christmas, the Detroit Chapter of the Satanic Temple made history by conducting the first Satanic ceremony on the State Capitol steps in Lansing, Michigan under the black flag of the Satanic USA, apparently. And this Good Friday, they made some more history by conducting a “Sanctions of the Cross” demonstration in front of a Planned Parenthood to protest legislative restrictions on baby sacrifice.
As Samantha Allen of The Daily Beast put it: “It was a showdown that can only be described as biblical: The Satanic Temple of Detroit versus the Pro-Life Action League outside of a Planned Parenthood clinic on Good Friday.”
You can see other photos at the Daily Beast, depicting their leader, Jex Blackheart or Jinx Blackmore or whatever her/his name is, staring at the camera wearing a crown of thorns and carrying a cross. I’d prefer not to reproduce them here, thank you. Talk about “cultural appropriation,” huh? You’d think all the social justice snowflakes in Ann Arbor would be all over this, wouldn’t you?
