Satanic Temple leader Twitter account suspended

Twitter is apparently indulging in religious discrimination against Satanic Temple after suspending a leader Twitter account for complaining about calls to burn down a Satanic Temple building.

Lucien Greaves a leader of the Satanic Temple recently had his Twitter account suspended in what many observers feel is in unjust circumstances.

A former child actor Corey Feldman who has taken on the role of a witch hunter with a particular hostility to Satanists, retweeted a call to burn down a Satanic Temple building in Salem USA. Lucien Greaves challenged Feldman over his tweet and asked fellow Satanists to report any content of religious hatred against Satanism to Twitter.  For some reason Twitter suspended Greaves when he complained about religious hatred, and his Twitter account remains suspended at time of writing.

Satanic Temple quickly put out a press release condemning Twitter for religious discrimination, threatening legal action.  Greaves and Satanic Temple say that they acted within the Twitter terms and conditions, there being no legitimate reason to suspend the account, especially as they are the victims of threat and abuse.  Some news media such as Fox followed up the story, Twitter refused to comment on why the Twitter account was suspended.

The suspension of the Greaves Twitter account for what appears to be no legitimate reason is in sharp contrast to the blind acceptance by Twitter of President Trump whose tweets are racist, hateful, abusive and pushes America ever closer to world war.

Another contrast is the Twitter account known as @drifloud who has been targeting children, their families and other innocent people with harrassing and abusive tweets of a Satanic Ritual Abuse theme, a discredited fiction, that continues to violate the privacy of children since 2015.  Despite dozens of abuse reports to Twitter, the social media company does nothing about @drifloud.  This writer has made a recent further referral of the account to Twitter to test their new moderation processes before moving the matter up to a political and legal level.

Twitter is in the opinion of this writer the worst social media company in dealing with abuse and harrassment, but is slowly being forced by political, legal and advertising pressures to take action against abuse on its platform.  It remains to be seen what will happen over the suspended Satanic Temple Twitter account, although it is clear that there is a long way to go before social media companies such as Twitter get their moderation processes sorted out.

  1. Why would a Satanist want digital platforms to be censored in any way? Isn’t the most Satanic policy to allow total freedom of speech, and let “Satan” sort things out? Once you start censoring, you allow the platform to be captured by political pressure groups who specialize in thought policing, which is what is happening to twitter, google, facebook, etc. Fuck that. Dealing with trolls and slanderers is the price of freedom.

    • There is no “Satan” or “God” to sort things out, only human beings. Liberty comes with responsibility, if people cannot be responsible, those liberties will be lost.

      Alas, giving platforms over to the irresponsible means the trolls, extremists and tyrants take the liberty of everyone down with them.
