The Satanic Temple will be hosting “SatanCon” from February 11-13, 2022. The three-day event will take place in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The Satanic Temple recently sued Scottsdale, AZ, for refusing to allow the organization the opportunity to deliver an invocation before its city council meetings. Even though the city had never rejected anyone else’s request, and both Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and Councilmember Suzanne Klapp celebrated their efforts to prevent The Satanic Temple from delivering an invocation, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the city did not engage in unlawful discrimination.
The event will be dedicated to Mayor Lane and Councilmember Klapp who took pride in depriving The Satanic Temple of their civil liberties by refusing to allow one TST member the opportunity to utter a brief, solemn message. Hundreds of Satanists will now be descending on Scottsdale for an entire weekend. Lane and Klapp will look even worse when residents discover how charitable TST members are.
