WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?

While we are an independent congregation,
we align with the 7 Fundamental Tenets of The Satanic Temple.

While we are an independent group, we align with the 7 Fundamental Tenets of The Satanic Temple.

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

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

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

IV. 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.

V. Beliefs should conform to one’s best scientific understanding of the world.
One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one’s beliefs.

VI. People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one’s best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.

VII. 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.

CHARITY

To Hell with Homelessness


Our first successful charitable initiative took place in the Summer of 2020 when we initiated our To Hell with Homelessness campaign. We collected a stockpile of vital, needed items, compiled them into individual care packages, and delivered them to the homeless population of Delaware County.

Read this Philadelphia Inquirer article for more details.

Domestic Abuse Project

While our first attempt to benefit the DAP was slowed by the Covid-19 pandemic, we were able to regroup in Autumn of 2020 to deliver what could only be described as a metric fuckton of needed items to this vital organization.

This article provides more detail and input from the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County.

Outsider Achievement Award


High School is a critical, formative part of life for most American teenagers. Countless factors converge to define how that experience impacts each young individual. For some students, sports, academics, and groupthink come naturally. But in the shadows of the Homecoming Royalty, football star, and Most Likely To Succeed, lies the outsider.

Satanic Delco’s Outsider Achievement Award grants $666 to a student who embraces individualism, empathy, free-thought, and skepticism.

See this page for more information about the award, and this article from the local news.

Heathens Helping Hounds

During the Spring of 2021, Satanic Delco collected and delivered a significant stockpile of needed items to the Rags 2 Riches Animal Rescue. Rags 2 Riches is a nonprofit 501c3 foster based, all-breed, no-kill animal rescue based in Delaware County PA.

During our initial contact with them, Director Tish Mayo said “The underdog or outsider is what we are all about. We promote positivity and kindness in a world full of hate.” We couldn’t resist!

Here is some local news coverage of the donation.

FAQ

DO YOU WORSHIP SATAN?
No, nor do we believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural. We believe that religion can, and should, be divorced from superstition. As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions. Satanists should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things. Our beliefs must be malleable to the best current scientific understandings of the material world — never the reverse.
DO YOU PROMOTE EVIL?
No. We hold to the basic premise that undue suffering is bad, and that which reduces suffering is good. We do not believe in symbolic “evil.” We acknowledge blasphemy as a legitimate expression of personal independence from counter-productive traditional norms.
WHAT DOES SATAN MEAN TO YOU?
Satan is a symbol of the Eternal Rebel in opposition to arbitrary authority, forever defending personal sovereignty even in the face of insurmountable odds. Satan is an icon for the unbowed will of the unsilenced inquirer – the heretic who questions sacred laws and rejects all tyrannical impositions. Our metaphoric representation is the literary Satan best exemplified by Milton and the Romantic Satanists from Blake to Shelley to Anatole France.
IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE SUPERNATURAL, HOW IS IT A RELIGION?

The idea that religion belongs to supernaturalists is ignorant, backward, and offensive. The metaphorical Satanic construct is no more arbitrary to us than are the deeply held beliefs that we actively advocate. Are we supposed to believe that those who pledge submission to an ethereal supernatural deity hold to their values more deeply than we? Are we supposed to concede that only the superstitious are rightful recipients of religious exemption and privilege?

Satanism provides all that a religion should be without a compulsory attachment to untenable items of faith-based belief. It provides a narrative structure by which we contextualize our lives and works. It also provides a body of symbolism and religious practice — a sense of identity, culture, community, and shared values.
