A crazy Satanist got put into his place on Sunday after he tried to bash American veterans during a segment with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Tucker invited Lucien Greaves, the co-founder of The Satanic Temple, onto his show.
Although the Satanic Temple sounds menacing, they list their guidelines such as “one should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason” and “the freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend” on its official website.
Carlson questioned Greaves and his decision to try and place a Satanic monument near the Veterans Memorial Park in Belle Plaine, Minnesota.
“I think that people should have the right to speak,” Carlson explained to Greaves, “but also they should have to answer questions, and the right to speak and the right to sort of give the finger to the residents of this little town in Minnesota is not exactly … the same thing.”
The self-described Satanist quickly fired back. “That is not what we were doing … if you look at the monument, it’s very respectful, it’s reverent,” said Greaves.
“A simple monument, really. [It’s a monument] for veterans,” Greaves continued.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The Satanic Temple had planned to install the monument in the so-called “free speech zone” of Belle Plaine’s veterans park.
When residents of the small town objected, the city council voted to end the controversy by getting rid of that entire zone, which effectively prevented the satanic monument from being placed at all.
Greaves continued to claim that the arguably offensive statue — a metal cube marked with a pentagram and a soldier’s helmet — was first and foremost about honoring veterans.
“Not all veterans are Christian, not all veterans are Satanists, but they did fight for pluralism and they did fight for free speech. And to that end, it’s nice to know that we can preserve those values,” he insisted.
“Look, here’s the point I’m making: there’s no comparison between Satanism — which is like a silly, made-up religion which has no God — Christianity or Judaism or Islam … they’re millennia old, they run hospitals, churches, schools; they form the basis of our civil society,” Carlson stated.
“They don’t really compare to what you’re doing,” the host continued.
