Are you guys The Satanic Temple?
Are you the Church of Satan?
No. Reno Satanic is more closely aligned, ideologically, with The Satanic Temple (although we are not affiliated) which is a more modern evolution of Enlightenment-inspired Satanic thinking. The Church of Satan tends to be more of an online presence in keeping with its ideals of Individualism while we are more active in our local community. We are also not affiliated with any of the other Satanic groups out there.
How do I get involved?
Easy: follow us on any of our social media pages, sign up for our newsletter and participate in our local events. In the interest of building community, we are trying to schedule regular, bi-weekly meetups and monthly events. We announce these on all of our channels and constantly seek input to better schedule and serve our Reno Satanic community.
As most of our members are non-theistic/atheist we do not believe in an actual Satan (nor God). Many coming from a religious background or from the Western Tradition understand Satan as a symbol of rebellion against tyranny and the unjust. We value the idea of Satan in the sense of the Adversary.
