Satanists Protest Idaho’s Proposed Ban on Sex Changes for Minors

Objectivity 4.6 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

On Monday a small group from the Satanic Temple gathered in Idaho’s capital building to protest the “Vulnerable Child Protection Act.”  The bill would criminalize offering puberty blockers or sex change surgeries to minors, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. They dubbed their protest as a “gender affirmation ritual” in which they were praising Satan and themselves for standing against “forced false identities.”  Around 200 counter-protestors were outside carrying signs and American flags. One temple-member protestor said, “Hail Satan, but more importantly – hail yourselves,” with fellow protestors repeating the chant.
