Our Rebellion

The Noosa Temple of Satan is dedicated to challenging the privileges that traditional religions enjoy in Australia.

The traditional religions have a strong and unhealthy influence over Australia’s institutions, particularly our parliaments and our education system. They use this power to indoctrinate young minds and gain undemocratic advantages for themselves.

As Satanists, we celebrate free-thinking and rebellion against established tyranny.

Consequently, we believe in the principle of secularism which means that there should be a clear separation of Church and State. Religions should not receive special benefits from governments. They should have no special access to, or special role to play, in our state schools or government institutions.

In order to challenge the special privileges that traditional religions currently enjoy, we intend to apply for the same privileges. We recognise that many people are shocked by Satanists and strongly object to our presence. We intend to use that shock to highlight existing religious privilege. We hope that empathetic Christians will come to understand that non-Christians may be equally offended by Christian activities and it would be fair and best for everyone if religious activities retreated from the public arena to private homes and churches.

Our rebellion is currently involved in the following projects:

We will be applying to offer Satanic Instruction classes in Qld State schools. As part of that we will seek to become a member of RIQA, the Religious Instruction Quality Assurance group (a stakeholder group organised by the Education Department which is made up of faith leaders and excludes non-faith groups).

We will be commencing legal actions under the Qld Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 seeking an order to stop Christian prayers at the beginning of sessions in our State Parliament and the Brisbane City Council. If this is successful we will pursue similar actions in other States.

We will be commencing an action against Australia Post for discriminating against us in relation to the printing of a custom stamp.

We will be offering a Satanic chaplaincy service at the Sunshine Coast Hospital and will continue with our efforts to have Christian paraphernalia removed from the multi-faith chapel in that Hospital.

If the Federal Government seeks to enact the draft Religious Discrimination Bill then we will highlight the wonderful benefits for Satanism that the proposed Bill provides.

In 2021 we will continue to run events such as our Black Mass and our Satanic Sky Writing to highlight and promote Satanism in Australia and we hope to hold Satanic ceremonies and social events so that Satanic collaborators can get together and celebrate Satanism.

Other items that may be added to the agenda for 2021 include offering a school chaplaincy service, offering a Satanic confirmation ceremony for teenagers, attending the Red Mass if it is held and demanding government and opposition leaders consult with us in the same way they consult with traditional faith leaders.

Repost - Noosa has again a very close connection to our recycled Deputy Prime Minister Barnarby Joyce through the actions of our very generous local Member of Parliament. May Satan richly bless them. 🤘😈Llew O'Brien MP for Noosa has employed Barnaby Joyce's partner Vikki Campion - hopefully the Noosa Temple of Satan will be working closely with Vikki and Llew during the debate around the Religious Discrimination Bill. 🙏😈 www.pressreader.com/australia/the-sunday-times-9029/20200308/283300344604035 ...

When students return for semester 2 at University of Queensland, they may be able to access Satanic pastoral care on campus!Earlier this month, our spiritual leader Brother Samael Demo-Gorgon wrote to UQ to inform it that the Noosa Temple of Satan wished to be added to the list of chaplaincy providers who are on hand to support students and staff.According to its website, UQ’s Multi-Faith Chaplaincy is an “inclusive space to share faith, traditions and spiritual practices with respect for each person’s spiritual journey and chosen faith.”The service provides “pastoral care, support, spiritual conversations, learning and events for many faiths”, including various types of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism.In his letter, Brother Samael said that the Noosa Temple of Satan, in representing Australia’s fastest growing religion, wished to have the same opportunity as other faiths to use the university’s facilities to provide pastoral care and spiritual conversations, among other activities.In response, the university told us we would have to pass through a few hoops before we could begin our important work.Among the boxes that we need to tick to show our temple’s ‘recognition of standing as a faith’, we have to demonstrate “the broad position and reputation of the faith body in society”. Also, for Brother Samael to be appointed as a chaplain we need to demonstrate his “reputable character and good standing”, and the likelihood that he “will contribute positively to the UQ Community.”Brother Samael is hopeful that he can be working on campus in time for O-Week next month.“Our temple’s key tenets include ‘Enlightenment’ and ‘Critical Thought’. So Satanism is a natural fit for the university, especially given the number of liberal arts students there!" he says.“Satanic chaplaincy can play an important role in helping students cope with the pressures of university life and can even bring UQ students and staff to the right path through spiritual conversations."If any of our members are students or staff at UQ, please get in touch with us!Hail UQ!Hail Satan! ...
