The Satanic Temple Celebrates First Symbolic Satanic Monument on Public Property

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

In 2019, the Supreme Court ruled in American Legion v. American Humanist Association that displaying the so-called "Bladensburg Satanic Peace Cross" on public land does not violate the Establishment Clause of the US Constitution. Lucien Greaves, The Satanic Temple's (TST) spokesman and co-founder, announced that the TST would symbolically adopt the Peace Cross, as the Supreme Court decided that the cross-shaped war memorial was a "dechristianized" monument. He stated, "Deciding that the Bladensburg Cross does not just represent Christians, but people of all faiths including Satanists, is blasphemy that is consistent with Satanism." As such, he declared it as a site of pilgrimage for TST members. The Satanic Temple has a long tradition of helping its military members, so the adoption of the monument commemorating those lost during WWI is apt. While Belle Plaine, MN, was the first city to establish a Satanic monument in the country, Bladensburg, MD, is the first city to have a Satanic Temple-designated monument on state property.
