This story just keeps getting better and better every time we hear more about it. Last week, we joined a bunch of other media outlets in reporting that a Satanic Temple based in New York was planning to hold a rally to thank Florida Gov. Rick Scott for his support of SB 98, which would allow students to decide whether to allow inspirational messages (aka, prayers) at school functions. The Satanists, led by a guy named Lucien Greaves (you can see his Facebook profile here), said they were "happy to show their support of Rick Scott who – particularly with SB 98 – has reaffirmed our American freedom to practice our faith openly, allowing our satanic children the freedom to pray in school."
Turns out, though, that Greaves is actually making a movie about "the nicest Satanic Cult in the world," according to the Huffington Post, and the rally was staged to draw attention to it. You can watch Greaves being interviewed at the alleged rally by the Florida News Service in a YouTube video below.
Well played, Satan!
