Satanic Group To Be Charged With Trespassing For Pink Mass Ritual

Pink Mass News

On July 14th the New York-based Satanic Temple held a "pink mass" ceremony over the Mississippi grave site of Catherine Idalette Johnston, the mother of notorious hate-monger Reverend Fred Phelps. The intent was to turn her "gay for all eternity" and was crafted in response to Westboro Baptist Church threatening to protest the funerals of the Boston Marathon bombing victims.

Bill Arlinghaus, the owner of the cemetery in Meridian, Mississippi, is now looking to press charges of tresspassing and the local police are preparing to arrest those involved as soon as possible. Captain Dean Harper of the Meridian Police Department said of the incident,

"It is an unusual crime that we haven't come across to my knowledge in awhile. Not only does it violate a state and city ordinance, but it also violates the moral decency of a human being."

The charges laid against the participants of pink mass include trespassing, indecent exposure, and malicious mischief. It will be interesting to see how any convictions play out since, even though the Satanic Temple admits that attention is what they were after, they were arguably practicing their religion. There is also a notable comparison between the pink mass "conversion" of the late Mrs. Johnston's sexuality and the Mormon church's practice of posthumous baptism and conversion of jews.

  1. Just claim freedom of religion. There is nothing you can't get away with if you say that.

  2. The Satanic group and the mutant Westboro group have one thing in common: they both believe in after life bull s@it!!! LOL!!!

  3. They should use the same defense that the phelps clan uses when they perform their abhorrent practices--I believe it's free speech and freedom of religion. They seem to win every case--study the strategy.

    Can't have it both ways, phelpses.

  5. Also I would LOVE the read the state and city ordinance they violated.

  6. The Satanic group is trolling three groups at once, which I say more power to them on this one.

  8. Yes, the eye for an eye approach has worked so well historically. Nice to see that we're supportive of stooping down to WBC levels, with some trespassing thrown in.

  9. Although to my knowledge they've never trespassed on cemeteries, Mormons have been doing forced baptisms posthumous on millions of Judaism followers, victims of the Holocaust, into the Mormon church for a few decades now.

    How come no one had arrested them for "violating the moral decency of a human being" before?

    Arrest that satanic group for trespassing, but don't start the "moral decency" speech if you are not ready to apply it to other sects as well. Including Kolob and Xenu.

  10. Don't condemn the mutant Westboro Baptists if you are not willing to condemn these freaky Satanists as well. The one thing that they have in common is that they both believe in the tooth fairy etc.

  11. This is just so enjoyable because both sides are such disgusting people lol

  12. The mormons baptize everyone posthumously, not just jewish people. Something we all get to look forward to, although fortunately we'll be too dead to notice.

  13. They have more in common than they think.

  14. " also violates the moral decency of a human being." Is this not what the WBC does every time they show up at a funeral with their vile signs? Piss on their family graves for all I care. Is there the remotest chance they'll understand the pain they cause if they're faced with it themselves? D'oh.

  15. The only thing sadder than a group of satanists are the fools terrified of Satan.

  16. Please enlighten me on one point: if posthumous conversion is offer to the dead people, don't their Spirits have some First Right of Refusal?

  17. stupid dickbag retarded satanists. not only are they not helping theyre MORONS.

  18. Well, the ordinance in question is simply that the place is closed to the public after dark, and possibly a ban on music, food and drinks. This is the sort of thing that gets you a $150 fine.

  19. see! now we have proof that homosexuality is the devil's work!

  20. "it also violates the moral decency of a human being"

    Prove it. Good luck.

    This is certainly the best performance that religious people have put on in a while.

  21. Everyone knows you can't practice religion in a cemetery. Zombie jesus might get pissed.

  22. Um, just wondering how the heck a trespassing charge would stick. If an area (even privately owned) is open to the general public, you'd typically have to be told you're no longer welcome on the property... and then be charged only if you return.
