SEVEN
TENETS

Satanic Australia abides by the 7 Fundamental Tenets of The Satanic Temple

Core Beliefs
We are not officially affiliated with The Satanic Temple, but we share their core beliefs and mission: to facilitate the communication and mobilisation of politically aware Satanists, secularists, and advocates for individual liberty.

We are a nontheistic religion and do not believe in a literal Satan; rather to us he is a potent symbol of rebellion against religious tyranny.
 
 
The Seven Tenets:

Compassion

One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.

Justice

The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.

Freedom

The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.

Autonomy

One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.

Reason

Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.

Accountability

People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and remediate any harm that may have been caused.

Wisdom

Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.
