About Satanic Adelaide

What is Satanism?

Satanism is a non-theistic religion. This means that we, as Satanists, do not believe in a literal god nor devil. Instead, we see Satan as a metaphorical character that defines a way through which we should live our lives.

We practice a secular morality, and while we are not affiliated with The Satanic Temple, we feel that our ethics are well encoded in the seven tenets of The Satanic Temple.

Our Mission

Satanic Adelaide’s mission is to bring a satanic change to Adelaide. We aim to achieve this through activism fighting for church/state separation, freedom of expression and bodily autonomy. This involves issues such as fighting to give people access to euthanasia, remove religious instruction in public schools and to give women access to abortions

Our Story

Satanic Adelaide’s mission is to bring Satanism to Adelaide. While we are not officially affiliated with The Satanic Temple, we at Satanic Adelaide share their core values and beliefs; namely their Seven Tenets.

In bringing Satanism to Adelaide, we hope to build a satanic community with the primary goal of social justice in mind. We welcome the support of Atheists, Humanists, Free-thinkers and anybody who wants to lend us a helping hand.

The Seven Tenets

Satanic Adelaide accepts the seven tenets of The Satanic Temple, although we continue to welcome other forms of satanism!

Compassion

One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.

Justice

The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.

Freedom

The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.

Autonomy

One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.

Reason

Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.

Accountability

People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and remediate any harm that may have been caused.

Wisdom

Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.
