***Update – The Satanic Temple national leadership withdrew the offer of the help to Muslims issued by two of its chapters this weekend, details here.***
The Satanic Temple, an organization that advocates and promotes the separation of church and state, is offering to help Muslims caught in the wave of Islamophobia that has followed the Paris terror attacks, the Washington Times reports. Two chapters of the Satanic Temple, one in Minneapolis and the other in San Jose, have offered their protection and assistance to members of the Muslim communities in their local areas.
What manner of assistance is the Satanic Temple offering to provide? The offer of help seems to be pretty open-ended. Essentially, what the Satanic Temple has said is that the members of branches in San Jose and Minneapolis “would be happy to help any Muslims made uncomfortable by the recent surge in anti-Islamic sentiment.”
