Yeah, I think people still have that notion of Satanists as people who actually worship Satan and not, say, Church of Satan members. From the wiki, because I'm lazy:

The church does not believe in the Devil, neither a Christian nor Islamic notion of Satan. Peter H. Gilmore describes its members as "skeptical atheists", embracing the Hebrew root of the word "Satan" as "adversary". The church views Satan as a positive archetype who represents pride, individualism, and enlightenment, and as a symbol of defiance against the Abrahamic faiths which LaVey criticized for what he saw as the suppression of humanity's natural instincts

Meh, in non competitive races, you tend to get the screwball candidate that wins by default mainly because the party knows it's a fruitless effort to put up a real candidate.

I suspect R's punted on the election in that race from the onset, and she figured that since no one else was running, she'd win by default. Technically, parties aren't private affairs - there's nothing stopping you from calling yourself and campaigning as a Republican even if your politics are 180 degrees apart from the party. Obviously you wouldn't get any support from the party, but if you win the election, it's irrelevant.

Satanist do not actually believe in Satan.  They use him as a metaphore for rebellion against an unjust authority.

Think about it.  We say God is good, because he tells us he is good, as a Satanist will point out.  However look at his reported actions from the point of view of a king with a weather machine doing them, and most of his actions are not good.  Killing everyone in a flood for disobedience, killing them for not worshiping him good enough, or for liking other rulers.  Ordering his people to commit genocide.  There is very little about God that is objectively good.

Now of course God is going to tell us he is good, because even an evil dictator will tell you that they are good and deserving of praise.  Now Satanist do not believe in God but they use him as a metaphore in this way, and point out that Satan, while not perfect, is the only one standing up to this injustice.

The main weapon of the satanist is trolling.  They will often endorse politicians and political powers to which they disagree, by pointing out how the Republican plan to cut spending on welfare programs is in opposition to the teachings of Jesus, so of course naturally Satan is for them.  They did this in Florida with the last Republican governor.

They most famously fight for separation of church and state by requesting monuments of satan be installed next to Christian ones.

They are also good at trolling the Catholic church for protecting pedophiles.

My guess is that they knew the Republicans would never do their homework on their candidate in the primary and that they would throw the general election to the democrat.

Either that or they were expecting the Republicans to make asses of themselves in the primary, but that never happened.

Not necessarily.  You could posit a Satan that arose independently from a deity, and was not a deity himself, for example.  It's all just making shiat up anyway.

If you are a member of the church of Satan, it has nothing to do with believing in gods, and more about free will of your own choices.

Polyamorous folk refer to themselves as "poly" for short. "Multi" is already a code word for having some form of multiple personality or dissociative identity disorder, so we couldn't use that one. And the last thing we want is uneducated, narrow-minded Christians automatically assuming it has to be some form of terrible sexual deviance because it ends in "philia".

I don't get how satanist and atheist Coexist.

As a buddy-cop movie, or in real-life..?

In real-life: pretty easily, as far as I understand it; I'm sure that somebody with a better understanding will chime in, but as far as I understand it, the "modern" incarnation of Satanism is not a belief in- or worship of- some supernatural power, but rather a rejection of religion- and embrace of rationalism- as a basis for morality.

(As far as I remember there was also at least one older incarnation of Satanism - la Vey..? -  that was intended as half worship of Slaanesh hedonism, half rejection of Catholic guilt.)


/ But with that written, I do think the claim of being a Satanist is, in this instance, just attention whoring

Interesting.  Considering Clinton won the state in 2016, I had been considering it a fairly safe hold for Biden (or at least, a state that if he loses, he's already farked up so bad he would have lost even without losing NH).  It just blows my mind that the residents of a state could look at the current admin and go, yeah, we rejected him last time, but he really proved us wrong and now we want more of what he is selling.

Free will? What's that? If humans actually had free will, mass media advertising wouldn't work.

Humans can develop discipline and retrain themselves within a certain set of parameters, but we do not have free will. That's why people are so angry in the modern world: they've been boxed in while told they're more free than ever before.

The atheist satanist flavor combo has been discussed at some length above, but transgender lesbian is absolutely possible. Transgender is a qualifier for woman, not a switch, not particularly different from straight woman, post-menopausal woman, Native American woman, child-free woman, &c.  Trans people differ in the degree to which they identity as transgender, especially post-transition.  There's also a little bit of tension between trans women attracted to women and the lesbian community, but that is an aside and doesn't have anything to do with the price of coffee in Colombia as far as this thread is concerned.

Why not? There are Atheist Pastafarians and Atheist Discordians, and we both have our own gods that we know really don't exist (or do they?), but we like to use them to mock the Christians for their undying devotion to an angry and spiteful god who perpetuates a system of control and abuse, such the Catholic Church. In this case, being a Satanist Atheist is all about leveling the playing field and reminding the Christians that the 1st amendment protections apply to ALL religions, which usually results in public officials voting to remove said religious liberties. Take for example how many conservative cities have banned public prayer before city council meetings and removed exemptions for religious monuments on public property. The government shouldn't be endorsing an official religion, and the easiest way to piss off the Christians is with their own archenemy. Religion is a very complex field, and one can follow the rituals without having the beliefs.

You can be transgender and lesbian at the same time. How else would you describe a post-transition transwoman who identifies as female and exclusively has sex with other females? How do you explain the pervasiveness of the term "male lesbian" if the world is so utterly convinced that gender identity and sexual orientation must completely line up with each other? No one identifies as "transgender", that's an umbrella term. I'm transgender, but I identify as female. If I have sex with only other females, that makes me a lesbian. I'm not a lesbian, because I don't believe that my sexual orientation is a fixed label.

She'd be controversial even if she wasn't a Satanist Anarchist. She's a transwoman running for public office in one of the dumbest and most bass-ackwards states in the union. Of course, she's controversial. If this were the 1970s or earlier, she'd have been chased out of town by a torch-wielding mob just for trying to be public about her general existence.
