Thanks for the tip, Blake.

First it was Baphomet’s relocation to the Arkansas state capital …

Indiana Residents Are Furious That Satanists Are Picking Up Trash on the Highway, by Hemant Mehta (Friendly Atheist)

Two months ago, The Satanic Temple’s Indiana chapter, having just been accepted into the state’s Adopt-a-Highway program, completed their first clean-up event. They’ve done a second clean-up since then. In short, the Satanists are really making that stretch of highway in rural Zionsville a nice place to drive.

So naturally, locals are furious.

Maybe, but Fritz Kolmerton, also an area resident, has the right idea.

“My reaction was if they wanna clean the highway, they’re more than welcome to,” Kolmerton said. “It doesn’t matter to me who’s doing it one way or the other.”

I’m liking this organization more and more. They don’t merely preach cleanliness, they follow through.
