The Satanic Temple was stripped from the roster of an Idaho pride event on Saturday after sponsors, who were seemingly supportive of an event that also targeted impressionable children, started bowing out amid backlash for including a group that has Satan in its name.
Billed as “family-friendly” and sponsored by nationally and locally recognized groups — the Idaho chapter of the ACLU, Citizen’s Climate Lobby, a local library, the state police for District 1 and the Ecumenical Catholic Communion Church — the Satanic Temple Idaho (TST) participation was to include something it calls “unbaptisms.”
According to the “Pride in the Park” event website , “family/children’s activity area” was part of its celebration in downtown Coeur d’Alene on Saturday and lauded TST as one of its sponsors before removing the group.
Screenshots posted by the LibsofTikTok account , including an Idaho Tribune headline that said sponsors were fleeing after learning that TST was involved. A TST Idaho member acknowledged in a Twitter post that organizations were removing their sponsorships in response to its inclusion.
In a Facebook post advertising the event that has since been removed, TST Idaho said that its members would still be attending the event and would “have merchandise for sale, be offering support to our community and performing unbaptisms for those interested! Just know, Satan loves you for you! Hail Satan!”
The sacrament of baptism is a rite within the Christian faith wherein believers in Jesus make a public proclamation of their faith and are submerged under the waters signifying their old life dying and being raised to newness of life in Christ. In Christian traditions that practice infant baptism, also known as paedobaptism, water is poured over the head of the child and represents the seal of God’s covenant. TST’s promotion of so-called unbaptisms is reminiscent of a phenomenon that […]

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
