I've never taken any interest in Satanism, and never taken it seriously, as it's always struck me as being an unimaginative religion. But, I do have to give credit where credit is due. These guys are a force in the Resistance. 

"Satanists in Florida offer to fill school counselor roles after DeSantis law"

As per this article:

"Florida Satanists are volunteering to fill school counselor roles after Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed a law allowing religious chaplains into public schools amid staffing shortages.

"Nothing in the text of the bill serves to exclude us, and no credible interpretation of the First Amendment could. Should a school district now choose to have chaplains, they should expect Satanists to participate as well," Lucien Greaves, cofounder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, said in a statement to The Hill on Monday.

Back when DeSantis signed the bill in April, he described Satanism as "not a religion" and said its members would not be allowed to participate in the program.
  
But Greaves said the governor "openly lied to the public" regarding the situation.

"Either entirely ignorant of the most basic fundamentals of constitutional law, or too incompetent to care, DeSantis fails to recognize that it is not the place of the government to confer unique rights to one religious identity while denying them to another," he said."

Malaclypse the Younger, K.S.C., proclaimed, "We Discordians must all stick apart."

So, we as individuals can certainly volunteer. But, being the decentralized religion that we are, and the condition we are in, I don't expect to see any 'boots on the ground,' as would be the case with organized resistance cells.     

Hail Eris!

Fuck that, go and do it anyway. The FSM people pass the religious sniff test and they have half the history and documentation we do.

Well ... as near as I can tell, the Church of the FMS was last successfully, politically active in Florida in 2013, as per the following link:    Florida Capitol's Holiday Display Now Includes A Spaghetti Monster

And, in spite of their inferior pedigree, they were also politically active in Alaska last year, as per the following link:    Church of the FSM - CATEGORY ARCHIVES: EVANGELISM

So, do you know of any Discordian cabals in Florida who are politically active in the Resistance, and might appreciate some support? Personally, I'm unaware of any Discordian cabals at all in my own state.
