What is with all the Satanic Masses?

In a few weeks, the Oklahoma Satanists are holding their Black Mass in the Civic Center park in Oklahoma City. They are doing this to ‘educate’ people, but they are really stretching the bounds of the first amendment. They are claiming that, because Christians are using public spaces to promote their own religion, they should be able to also. Not everyone is against it, but it is sure to rile up a lot of protests by their presence in the Christian majority and Christian loving region. What is a black mass?

A Black Mass is a ritual characterized by the inversion of the Traditional Latin Mass celebrated by the Roman Catholic Church. The history of such rituals is unclear before the modern era. The Black Mass was allegedly celebrated during the Witches’ Sabbath.[1]
The clarity of the celebration of the Black Mass in medieval times is imprecise; some sources referring to Black Masses during the medieval period appear to be lurid manuals that seem to have been written for witch-hunters in Latin, such as the Malleus Maleficarum (1486) and the Compendium Maleficarum (1608). There are arguments claiming that the Black Mass served solely as a shock method in order to accuse enemies for several reasons[citation needed], but there also remain various sources claiming that it was practiced throughout Western history and currently in the modern era for the sole purpose of Satanic worship and sacrifice in ridicule of Christianity.

They are doing something that is completely in line with the law. They are all doing it with consent. There is theoretically nothing wrong with the idea, but I guess we will have to wait and see who is for it and who is against it. The Catholic Church, obviously, has already spoken out about it, but some progressive churches are welcoming the idea that it is bringing people together from different faiths to observe what other people believe. It is sure, however, to spark people’s attention in this heavily Christian area of the country.

  1. G.K. Chesterton a convert from the Anglican Church once wrote; “To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it” If God is real so is the devil! The Black Mass has been done for centuries hidden underground by Satanists. God allows the Satanists the exercise of free will to chose to live against the laws of God. Some people the devil is using today to destroy civilization and the church. The devil hates man because God became man in the incarnation.

    What is disturbing today is that society now has accepted to openly worship Satan. They want the right to teach our children this as an alternative religion as well!! If we do not resist we are allowing the unleashing of the powers of hell on those who attend and the surrounding areas. Recall the recent severe storms in the Oklahoma area, the mile wide tornado’s ect. These were warning and are the beginnings of natures revolt against Man. If we invoke the prince of this world we will suffer the consequences of his powers against man. The great liar and deceiver Satan is and we are falling into his trap. We have seen the beginning of the end of America. Returning to Chesterton, “To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it” Wake up America.

    “If the event involved stomping on the Koran, I bet the Civic Center would be calling for tolerance,” said TFP Student Action Director, John Ritchie. “But since the Black Mass calls for stomping on the Holy Eucharist, the Civic Center claims the event is ‘educational’ and deserves a public platform, which happens to be funded with Christian tax-dollars. Shame on the Civic Center. They’re misusing the 1st Amendment as a billy club to beat God-loving Americans over the head. It needs to stop.”

    Governor Mary Fallin also Speaks out: “This ‘Black Mass’ is a disgusting mockery of the Catholic faith, and it should be equally repellent to Catholics and non-Catholics alike,” said the Hon. Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma. “It is shocking and disgusting that a group of New York City ‘satanists’ would travel all the way to Oklahoma to peddle their filth here. I pray they realize how hurtful their actions are and cancel this event.” For full statement: https://www.ok.gov/triton/modules/newsroom/newsroom_article.php?id=223&article_id=14564
