Help The Satanic Temple ‘adopt a highway’ in New York City. Support religious diversity.
The Satanic Temple supports community, compassion, justice, and civic responsibility.
Help The Satanic Temple spread their message as they enter the adopt-a-highway program in New York City where they will maintain voluntary beautification of a stretch of public highway for at least 2 years by way of litter cleanup and landscaping.
Once approved, the New York Department of Transportation will erect a blue-and-white sign acknowledging The Satanic Temple as the adopters of the designated piece of highway, helping promote a message of Satanic Civic pride and social responsibility.
Against a cultural backdrop noted for simplistic dichotomies and a monotone voice known as “the” religious agenda, the Satanic Temple boldly stands forth to assert the too-often-marginalized voices of religious non-believers.
The Satanic Temple seeks to separate Religion from Superstition by acknowledging religious belief as a metaphorical framework with which we construct a narrative context for our goals and works. Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness.
The Satanist harbors reasonable agnosticism in all things, holding fast only to that which is demonstrably true. The cultural narratives through which we contextualize our lives must be malleable to conformity with our best scientific understandings of the material world… Those understandings, in turn, must never be so rigidly codified as to themselves be inflexible to advancements yet unknown.
Community, compassion, justice, and civic responsibility: These are worthwhile values wherever they are practiced, and whoever they are practiced by, regardless of whatever arbitrary political or religious label may be attached to them in their execution. We call on all people to support the Satanic Temple in this effort to engage their community in a positive, productive manner.
