The leaders at SatanCon 2023 inaugurated the event by shredding the Bible and a “Thin Blue Line” flag, representing the police, as “symbols of oppression.” The event took place at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston and was organized by the Satanic Temple. The three-day event has been hailed by Satanists as “the largest satanic gathering in history.” The event commemorated the 10th anniversary of the Satanic Temple.
Washington Examiner reports:
Satanists applauded Friday as leaders of SatanCon 2023 opened events by shredding “symbols of oppression,” including a “Thin Blue Line” flag and a copy of the Bible.
“We stand here today in defiance of their siege and destroy their symbols of oppression,” one leader, a woman, announced to the crowd before shredding pages from the Bible, according to a report.
The other leader, a man, tore a “Thin Blue Line” flag in two and threw it to the floor.
“We must build true community outside of the virtual,” he said.
“Rebelling comes in many forms to each and their own within their own capabilities and their own situation. For some of us, merely existing one more day is victory, but for those of us who can, we must stand up for those who cannot.”
SatanCon 2023 was hailed as three days of the “largest satanic gathering in history” hosted by the Satanic Temple at Boston’s Marriott Copley Place, the report noted.
This year’s event commemorates the temple’s 10th anniversary, and it was dedicated to Boston’s Democratic Mayor Michelle Wu because the temple had not been allowed to deliver a satanic invocation at a 2021 city council meeting, according to the report.
The event featured numerous speakers, many of whom preached about left-wing identity politics. Liberal professors delivered a number of lectures on transgender identity and “self-pleasure.”
