The satanic temple is set to open their headquarters in Salem, Massachusetts. The nationally recognized political and religious organization will open the doors of its new command center on Friday, September 23rd, 2016.

- Town made famous for witch trials over 300 years ago will soon be home to 40,000-strong movement
- Headquarters will be based in home not far from where dozens of villagers suspected of witchcraft were executed in 1690
- Locals will be able to take in art installations and lectures offered up by the movement
- Salem officials say there has been almost no protest heard from local residents
- Temple is a political movement which made a name for itself in highly publicized battles over separation of church and state
The building is a former funeral home, located right next to an elementary school. Salem officials say they are currently working to understand the temple’s intended use better. Organization spokesman Lucien Greaves says the Satanic Temple “isn’t an attack on anybody” and stressed that members wouldn’t be going door to door or affecting neighbors’ lives in any way.
However, this is the same organization which attempted to indoctrinate children with satanism in Florida by distributing satanic materials to children in 2014. The evil temple is also the same group behind the takeover of city council meetings across America.
Interestingly enough, the very designation and terminology that the satanic temple is using in regards to their new headquarters is the language used in times of war. The site will be their command center for international affairs. The takeover of America is on; the battle is before us, yet far too many fail to see what is happening to America.
The history of Salem, Massachusetts houses fire and brimstone preaching, but as of late – the ideology of “who cares” has taken over.
According to the Boston Globe: “Pitchfork-wielding mobs protesting the move seem unlikely, as the fire-and-brimstone theology of the Puritans who once populated the city has given way to a “live and let live” attitude in present day Salem.
Less than a mile from Gallows Hill — the notorious spot where villagers executed more than a dozen people accused of witchcraft in the 1690s — an 1882 Victorian on Bridge Street will serve as The Satanic Temple’s first physical headquarters, said Lucien Greaves, the temple’s spokesman.”
“The history of Salem is also part of the history of Satanism,” Greaves said. “I feel that [Salem] is a very appropriate place for this” temple. – The Boston Globe
Given the history, and the strategic movement by the satanic temple it is evident that there is another agenda at play. That agenda is not physical but spiritual; the Christian America that was is dying.
The Satanic Temple currently has about 40,000 members nationwide, Greaves said; and their chapters, like the Freemasons, have engaged in a number of campaigns nationwide. The biggest campaign to date was the attempt in Oklahoma City to erect a bronze statue of Baphomet, which was to be displayed next to the Ten Commandments monument.
Salem is a lost city; what once was a capitol of Christianity, in America, is now adding Satanists to the Witch City’s mixed bag of Wiccans, warlocks, and other faiths.
This is a call to action, today – September 23rd, 2016 – it’s time to pray for Salem; that the city would turn from its wickedness and repent.
