The Satanic Temple is requesting the opportunity to fly a flag at Boston’s City Hall after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that banning a request to fly a Christian flag at the location was unconstitutional.
The group shared a copy of its official request in a post on Twitter on Tuesday as part of “Satanic Appreciation Week.”
“Religious Liberty is a bedrock principle in a democracy, and Religious Liberty is dependent upon government viewpoint neutrality,” Lucien Greaves, co-founder of The Satanic Temple, said in a statement on Tuesday.
“When public officials are allowed to preference certain religious viewpoints over others, we do not have Religious Liberty, we have theocracy,” he added.
