Satanists Plan Rally For Rick Scott For His 'Defense Of Religious Liberty'

Posted: 01/14/2013 9:39 am EST | Updated: 01/14/2013 9:52 am EST

Florida Governor Rick Scott, who suffers dismal approval ratings, has at least garnered favor with one unlikely group -- Satanists.

On January 25, the members of the Satanic Temple will gather on the steps of Scott's office in Tallahassee as a show of solidarity with the Governor, whom they believe "has shown unwavering fortitude and progressive resolve in his defense of religious liberty," according to a press release.

Specifically, they're referring to Scott's recent approval of Senate Bill 98 that permits school districts to allow students to read inspirational messages of their choosing at assemblies and sporting events. It went into effect on July 12.

"The Satanic Temple embraces the free expression of religion, and Satanists are happy to show their support of Rick Scott who -- particularly with SB 98 -- has reaffirmed our American freedom to practice our faith openly, allowing our Satanic children the freedom to pray in school," the release continues.

1. What the hell are Satanists doing associating themselves with this creep?

Could the same be said for Catholics and the Pope?

7. Lol, bet he didn't see that one coming.

This is an ongoing problem for those who think their religion is the only one. They forget that when they pass laws to insert religion into a public process, there are all kinds of "others" who may exercise the right as well.

8. LaVeyan Satanism is a rather nasty Ayn Rand-esque pile of crap

So yeah they fit in well with Scott.
