The Satanic Temple brings ‘Convocation of the Godless’ to Austin, TX
The Satanic Temple will be performing a unique ritual/performance convocation in Austin, TX as formalization of a “Satanic Revolution”
AUSTIN, TX – February 10, 2016 – In celebratory recognition of the organization’s recent high-profile success at seeing public prayer removed from the City Council in Phoenix, AZ, The Satanic Temple (TST) will perform a ritualized ‘Convocation of the Godless’ in Austin, TX, February 16, 2016. This one-time, unique event will formally denote the inauguration of a “Satanic Revolution,” according to TST spokesperson Jex Blackmore, who will be leading the ceremonial proceedings.
Texas is a particularly appealing venue for the event due to what Jex Blackmore refers to as the State’s “unique stature as a stronghold of regressive theocratic, persecutory anti-intellectualism.” Texas’s continuous outpouring of regressive religious politicians, from Governor Greg Abbott to Presidential GOP forerunner Ted Cruz, makes it a deeply relevant State for TST’s blasphemy-flavored First Amendment activism.
Austin’s event, Blackmore explains, is meant to “inspire a Satanic uprising against the tyrannical vestiges of bigoted superstitions, and will harken a new era of liberation and unfettered inquiry.” In conjunction with the event, and in the spirit of their religious activism, TST has launched the website satanic-revolution.com, where newcomers can join and/or support their high-profile campaigns, officially registering themselves into “The Book of Satan.”
Unique and memorable as the Austin showing promises to be, admission is free to the public.
- Event occurs on 2.16.16 at The Sidewinder, 18+, 515 Red River St. Austin, TX, FREE
“a transformative Satanic experience”
Beginning February 10 in New York City, The Satanic Temple will launch premiere screenings of the highly-anticipated historical horror film, The Witch, amid interactive performances and ritualized pronouncements of a “new Satanic era.” The Witch, opening in theatres nationwide on Feb. 19, opposite faith-based biblical thriller Risen, has received the official sanction of TST, and has been described by Jex Blackmore as a “transformative Satanic experience” unto itself.
