Hail Satan? 2019 / Forget everything you think you know about the Satanic Temple

8.0
a
agoodmovietowatch Staff

The question mark in the title represents the central idea of this fascinating documentary: what if worshipping Satan is the only way of ensuring religious freedom for everyone?

That’s what a group of young members known as The Satanic Temple believe, led by a determined and well-spoken Harvard graduate. They embark on a journey across the U.S. to challenge corrupt officials and the prevalence of religious biases in government agencies. They always request that their belief system (Satanism) is given the same favorable treatment as Christianity, effectively proving that authorities will really only accept a show of religion if it’s one religion: Christianity.

But their intoxicating energy comes with costs: divisions within the organization and growing pains. This documentary perfectly illustrates not only a misunderstood religion (in the documentary it’s referred to as “post-religion”) but the difficulties of establishing grassroots movements in general.

    If you don't see Satanism as a clear statement on religious hypocrisy, then you're probably one of the hypocrites. 4 people liked this review.

    Really? Have you never seen a gore terror movie? And actually, all religions should be permitted as long as they don't imply illegal acts. Satanism is a religion as any other, it's not like they kill inocents. I've never understood that aversion peple have to satanics. 2 people liked this review.
