Christians are planning to oppose the SatanCon event in Boston by arriving there and praying for the participants. SatanCon 2023 will take place from April 28-30 and it is predicted to be “the largest satanic gathering in history.” According to the website of The Satanic Temple, the event will mark its 10th anniversary. The event’s theme is “Hexennacht in Boston” which implies “Witches’ Night” and is associated with the pagan holiday of May Eve. SatanCon will consist of satanic rituals, discussion panels and entertainment all dedicated to the Mayor of Boston, Michelle Wu, because The Satanic Temple was not permitted to perform a ritual at Boston City Hall.
Fox News reports:
A group of Christians plans to attend SatanCon in Boston this week to pray for the attendees of what is being described as “the largest satanic gathering in history.”
“I initially went to prayer with a preconceived idea that God would want this to be prayed away,” Intercessors for America regional leader Suzie MacAskill told the Christian Post. “It was following this assumption that I was awakened through the night with a clear sense of ‘This is [God’s] harvest field.'”
SatanCon 2023, which is scheduled to take place April 28-30 in Boston, marks the 10-year anniversary of The Satanic Temple, according to its website. The theme of the gathering is “Hexennacht in Boston,” translated from German for “Witches’ Night,” which marks the ancient pagan holiday of May Eve.
The Temple claims to be a nontheistic religious organization that does not worship or believe in a personal Satan, but rather aims to “encourage benevolence and empathy, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense, oppose injustice, and undertake noble pursuits.”
SatanCon, which will include discussion panels, entertainment, satanic rituals such as “unbaptisms,” a satanic wedding chapel and a “satanic marketplace,” was dedicated to Democratic Boston Mayor Michelle Wu after the Temple was not allowed to deliver an invocation at Boston City Hall.
The group held a similar gathering in Scottsdale, Arizona, last year, which they dedicated to former Republican Mayor Jim Lane and former Republican Councilor Suzanne Klapp, who also denied a request to invoke the devil at a City Council meeting.
