The Noosa Temple of Satan is a religious organisation dedicated to the celebration and promotion of Satanism in Australia.
Our leader is Brother Samael Demo-Gorgon.
We emphasize the virtues of free-thinking and rebellion against Christian authority. Satanists are free thinkers so we don’t refer to supporters as “followers”. Satanists are engaged in a battle against tyranny so to call our supporters “members” seems a little understated. We like to think of our supporters and fellow Satanists as “collaborators”.
Just like the Christian churches, there is a wide spectrum of adherence to traditional Satanic beliefs. Some of our collaborators believe in Satan as a super-natural being while others prefer literary interpretations or metaphorical understandings.
The super-natural Satan that we promote and revere is the Satan of the Book of Job. Satan’s role is to challenge Christian faith and authority and a true Satanist accepts the same responsibility.
Here at the Noosa Temple of Satan, we welcome all Satanists and we preach and celebrate all forms of Satanism provided they do not conflict with our key tenets which are:
We revere Satan as a figure who symbolises rebellion against tyrannical or arbitrary authority. In particular, we revere the Satan described in the Book of Job, a tester of Christian faith and a challenger to Christian authority.
We believe that we must be compassionate and use our strength to aid those around us whenever it is sensible to do so.
We believe in self-enlightenment, and we encourage scepticism and a drive to remain informed and educated.
We encourage critical thinking in all of our actions and beliefs; we reject tradition for tradition’s sake. We promote an understanding and acceptance of modern scientific discoveries.
We believe in bodily autonomy; that everyone should have ultimate control over their own body.
We encourage indulgence in the pleasures of this life, so long as no undue harm is caused.
