Somehow I suspect the actual group that dresses up in weird robes and summons demons in secret ain't the Satanic Temple folk...

FTFA: the lawsuit notes a pregnant woman unquestionably provides her fetus hormones, oxygen, nutrients, antibodies, body heat and physical protection, all of which have substantial commercial value in Indiana based on the compensation provided to women who act as surrogates.
But the near-total abortion ban provides no compensation or consideration to a pregnant woman for providing the services necessary to sustain the life of a fetus, and is therefore unconstitutional under the 13th Amendment because it puts women into a condition of involuntary servitude, the lawsuit says.


Pretty interesting argument.
Conversely, parenthood is not involuntary servitude as parents, including MAGATS and evangelicals, put their children up for adoption to avoid such servitude.

To be a Satan worshiper, you'd have to actually believe in the entity.  Modern Satanists, as in the church in the article, are atheists and just took the name to rebel against christian conservativism.

Although to be fair, Satan is a figure in all Abrahamic texts, no?  So that's three possible flavors if they we real.

Also, for potential Christian based Satan worship, there's some compelling arguments to be made via history and the scriptures that Satan isn't the bad guy when compared to the deity they actually worship.  Who is on record in the book ordering people to kill their own kin, inflicting plagues, and causing more calamity vs a guy who shows up sometimes and follows orders like an angel do?

Oh if we're gonna be serious, Marcion I think had the most coherent Christian Ideology, that Yahweh was an evil God and Jesus had been sent to save people from Yahweh.  As an atheist, I like Satan as a literary character because he's maybe not a great person but genuinely seems to love humans more than God does for sure.

BUt I think the concept of "Satanism" or "Devil Worshippers" isn't quite as old as Christianity is.

I've never wanted anything to go to the Supreme Court so badly in my life.

The Madd Mann: I'm just waiting for the court's mealy-mouthed explanation of why the Religious Freedom Restoration Act only applies to Christians.


I expect them to find a way to not even grapple with the idea of "sincerely held beliefs" or anything like that, because they definitely don't want to wade into which beliefs are valid and not. There's no way to justify that against the First Amendment. They'll find some narrow bullsh*t nonsense that they can use.

If you could teleport back to the Dark Ages and explain the the Satanic Church was leading the enlightenment they would scoff.

To them, a thousand years of darkness and ignorance was the point.

Its possibly the best legal argument I've seen so far, and one the antiabortionists may have trouble rebutting.

Their argument will still be "but the precious baby!" but that doesn't address the full thrust of the claim.

They'll just ban the other faiths.  They're heathens and savages and they're wrong, after all.

Isn't believing you're correct and everyone else is incorrect pretty much fundamental to religion?  We've just had a brief historical period where they all looked the other way on that point, that's all.
