Boston SatanCon is coming. I know what you’re thinking. The word satan is very scary for most people. The actual definition of Satan according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary can be found HERE. Then of course, we have “cons.” What exactly is a “con?” A “con” is short for convention which is described as a large event where fans of (people who are very enthusiastic about) a particular TV show, movie, computer game, etc. can meet each other. In this case, we have SatanCon which is opening this weekend in Boston. At first glance, something like a SatanCon would scare most people. However, in this case, there’s no need to panic. Here’s why.

  • SatanCon is being dedicated to Boston Mayor Wu

    Organizers decided to dedicate the event to Mayor Wu because, in a statement: “she denied the group from delivering a satanic invocation at Boston City Hall and has used unconstitutional efforts to keep The Satanic Temple out of the public spaces of Boston.”

    SatanCon, poking at religion and government, opens this weekend in Boston

    The mostly lighthearted convention will celebrate the 10th year of the Satanic Temple, a progressive church that doesn't worship the devil but instead uses the word to get attention.

  • Why there is NO need to panic about SatanCon?

    The organization is more satire and poking fun at the thought of satan, not seeing satan as evil per se but more so makes a mockery of traditional religion. According to organizer Malcolm Jarry: “It’s a heroic figure who fights against tyrannical authority and for humanity, even if it’s a losing battle.”

  • Here's how the Archdiocese of Boston wants Catholics to respond to SatanCon

    They’re asking Catholics not to engage saying “We ask Catholics not to organize or encourage others to go to the event to protest. It will only make it more prominent and give the organizers the attention they seek.”
