Will the Real Satanic Temple Please Stand Up?

An internal rift within The Satanic Temple (TST) has spread into popular publications and external social media, highlighting an important set of struggles within the organization: between the original founders & friends and some of the wider national and international community that have come to embrace the group, between crusaders for principle and more pragmatically minded Satanists. Satanists in general have not traditionally been known for insisting on scruple, and that’s part of what made TST explosive in the early days, with its ability to assert and hold onto moral high ground in struggles with theocrats.
