The nation’s first state-sanctioned Satanic Ceremony performed at the Michigan Capitol
Speech delivered by Jex Blackmore, Director of The Satanic Temple of Detroit
December 19, 2015
We are gathered here to celebrate the spirit of humanity and the dawn of a New American Era.
In a season when many commemorate the birth of Christ, we commemorate our own genesis – the enlightenment of all humanity, a revelation of our nature as written in the annals of history, a gift from Lucifer, the light bringer, the morning star, and the rebel.
We are Satanists. We engender moral, spiritual and sexual freedom, personal independence, and insist upon personal choice in all things.”
