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 Councilwoman Suzanne Klapp celebrated their efforts to prevent The Satanic Temple from delivering an invocation, the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the city did not engage in unlawful discrimination.
The event will be dedicated to Mayor Lane and Councilwoman 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.
SatanCon will include talks and presentations that discuss the various campaigns championed by The Satanic Temple. These include efforts to protect members’ reproductive rights, fight psychiatric abuse, protect children from abuse in schools, promote addiction recovery, and proliferate the Temple’s after-school club. There will be vendors and entertainment as well, including a keynote presentation by Lucien Greaves.
