The temple is celebrating its 10th anniversary in Boston, Massachusetts, which started on Friday. Several Christian groups have planned prayer events in response. The Satanic Temple's 10th-anniversary celebration in Boston, Massachusetts, this weekend is facing counter-events from several Christian groups, including revivalist demonstrations designed to"ambush" the group's SatanCon convention.
The temple, unlike the Church of Satan, does not worship the biblical Satan as a deity but instead has historically used its religious association to"reject tyrannical authority," according to the organization's second annual SatanCon at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, roughly 25 miles south of the organization's symbolic home in Salem, Massachusetts.
The group's organizers have dubbed the three-day event the "largest Satanic gathering in history," and the convention will include presentations, rituals, and a "Satanic Marketplace."
Members of a Christian activist group on Friday held a demonstration outside of a Boston hotel where The Satanic Temple is holding SatanCon, in Boston, Massachusetts. Several Christian groups have planned prayer events throughout the weekend in response to the temple's 10-year-anniversary celebration.
