Satanism comes to North Carolina State University as a student club

William Nardi reports for The College Fix, Dec. 24, 2018, that a new student club, Satanic Students at NC State, just completed its inaugural semester at North Carolina State University (NCSU), a taxpayer-funded public university.

According to the satanic club’s website:

The mission of Satanic Students at NC State University is to 1) encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, 2) reject tyrannical authority, 3) advocate scientific examination of the universe and our place in it, 4) promote morality and justice based on rational, humanistic values, and 5) be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.

According to Technician, the official student newspaper of NC State University, a recent slide presentation at a Satanic Students meeting denied that the club worships Satan because “Satan doesn’t exist”.

That doesn’t make any sense. If the Satanic Students at NC State believe Satan doesn’t exist, then why call the club “Satanic”?

The satanic club’s founder and president is Peter Aker, a third-year studying chemical engineering. He said the purpose of the club is not to be inflammatory or to promote any particular system of beliefs, but that “Satanism is more of a philosophy and ideology, and not so much a religion. We don’t believe in a literal Satan. Instead, we use its philosophy and the symbology behind it to form our opinions on the way the world should go.”

Aker claims his club has “the same amount of validity” as other religious groups on campus, but has a better message — “It’s more modern. It’s less restrictive and puritan. We don’t preach that you’re going to go to Hell if you do bad things … What matters is what you do here, while you’re alive.”

In other words, it’s the same old Aleister Crowleyism — Do As Thou Will.

Aker admitted that his club’s five-part mission statement is based loosely off of the seven tenets of The Satanic Temple, which Aker lauds for advocating topics such as women’s reproductive rights that was promoted by several of the temple’s chapters as “Menstruatin’ With Satan,” in which feminine health care products were collected and redistributed to communities in need.

Alec Nabinger, a fourth-year student studying sustainable materials and technology, described some of Satanic Students’ principles to which he was drawn when he joined the club: “It’s more of just, the Satanic ideals of bodily autonomy, knowledge through science, accountability.”

Aker said the club has 8 members.

A 2017 column in Crisis Magazine addressed the rise of “Satanism” groups in America (Breitbart):

The real issue is all about the mainstreaming of Satanism in America. Much as the same-sex ‘marriage’ debate was about acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, so also Satanic groups seek social acceptance. Indeed, this is what the Satanists themselves declare. For them, it has nothing to do with religious practices. Many of them even allege they have none. They simply want to mainstream Satanism so that it will be viewed as normal.

1 Timothy 4:1
1: The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Satanism is about becoming god-like.

One of the reasons why I have never met a true “atheist” is that I have never met someone who’s words and/or actions convince me that they truly don’t believe in God. Even the “Satanists” seem to believe in the existence of God. This mumbo-jumbo about “scientific examination”, etc., is code for rationalism. Why would a group need a figure like “Satan” if they believe that everything should be “scientifically” proven? God is the author of the Universe. You can’t “argue” with God. Things come into being through the will of God. I think we know why these actions are… Read more »

For supposedly educated people these imbeciles positively suck at proper grammar.

Read the top line on the sign:

DOES SATANIC STUDENTS WORSHIP SATAN?

I know four year-olds that have better grammar skills.

I doubt they have empathy for babies killed in the womb. Reproductive rights trump human life.

Too bad he’ll never know who Paul Harvey was, especially around 1965:

What does one expect when this country threw their moral compass away years ago. No surprise here. Sad! But the left love it. I saw sugar like this just before I got out of the military in 90’s. They were allowing warlocks and witches worship in the military. Now damn Muslims.

But don’t dare allow your Bible sit out on the side table in your dorm room at school or military barracks. And heaven forbid let your cross or Start of David show. How dare us show our faith terrible, yes.

Aker’s tenets of Satanism, starting with a denial of the supernatural reality, at least of Satan, the prominence given to human reason over grace, and a rejection of religion because of its rules, especially about sexuality (for embarrassingly obtuse reasons),—much of it could be right out of a Teilhardist conference sponsored by Georgetown or by almost any other formerly Catholic college or university in America, except the Teilhardists within the RCC are more openly concerned with effectively denying the divinity of Christ, except as a usefully leftist, SJW metaphor, something like the way Aker personifies traducing Christianity from the outside… Read more »

It will be interesting to know if taxpayers, alumni and parents of current students are posting complaints to NCSU.

I’m wondering what they’d do if someone proposed a “murder club”, or a “pedophile club”? There is no end to things like this. These evil bastards can’t lose with tactics such as these. If it gets too weird they just outlaw all religion. That suits them well. There is a point at which a society has to exercise their rights as a society. Instead of going along with their myth that what we have is “bad” and “never should have been”, we need to claim what’s ours as ours and declare them as disruptive. If they want to rent a… Read more »

I’m saddened by all the literal CRAP going on in our institutions of higher learning….esp. the PUBLICLY funded universities and colleges to whom we entrust our children once we’ve sent them on their first “baby-steps” into the great big world beyond the safety and values of our own homes. I’ve seen social mores & “taboos” /educational standards/ moral expectations swing back/forth through years, & I’d always thought there would be a normal and expected, timely “counter-swing” to the present socialistic-driven immorality, open-borders, lawlessness, loss of Christian faith/values—back to a “revival-like” era, where the Ocasio-Cortez/Pelosi/Harris/Sanders etc etc faded into an historic… Read more »

And hiding behind all that high sounding talk lurks a devil they assert does not exist.

Interestingly, “Do what thou wilt” lives comfortably alongside the Google moto, “Don’t be evil.”
