Advocatus Diaboli Trevor Bell updates us on his court action

Our Advocatus Diaboli Trevor Bell has scored some good wins in the early days of his Supreme Court action.

Speaking on his Iron Fist & Velvet Glove podcast earlier this week, Trevor revealed that he had been successful in securing a section 49 costs order in his case against the Queensland government’s blocking of Satanists from being able to deliver religious instruction in public schools.

The costs order means that, no matter what happens in court, each side will bear their own costs.

“There are three things that you’ve got to demonstrate. One is that you have a case with some merit. And the Crown actually consented to all of this. We didn’t have to fight. They actually said to the judge, ‘We consent. Give him his order’” said Trevor.

“It has to be a test case that is of wider implication than just the case in question. And then you have to show financial disparity between yourself and the other side — so between myself and the state of Queensland.

“So I briefly listed my assets. And I can tell you that it was a brief list, because I don’t own much!”

He also reported that August looked likely for a hearing date.

We’re happy to see that Trev has just as much ‘vibe’ as the great Dennis Denuto when it comes to all things justice and the constitution…and you know what we mean!

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! ...
