Do you believe all religions should recieve equal treatment?

Should people who worship Thor and Odin receive as much attention and funding as Christians and/or Muslims


Should Satanist be allowed to pray in schools just the same as Christians wanting to pray in schools?

Satanists ARE allowed to pray in schools in the US. What country do you live in?

Unless their practices come into direct conflict with some established law - like, say, human sacrifice or something like that - I don't see why not.

I don't believe any religion should get any funding if you mean from the state.

I believe everyone has equal rights though. You're free to believe what you want, no matter how silly it may be. However, if you believe something foolish, expect it to be criticized. Criticism =/= tyranny. I believe in evaluating ideas on their merits.

What I mean is if a christian were to pray in front of the student body before a football game, do you believe a satanist should have the same right to pray as well?

Doesn't Satanism kind of... not need prayer?

Isn't that the point of Satanism?

I think you are confusing "right" with "social acceptability". Until and unless there is a significant portion of Satanists in that particular community, it is unlikely that they would be asked to.

I'm not sure what you mean by "attention and funding". I don't think any sort of government institution should be involved with promoting any religion, nor do I think any individual should be compelled to pay money to any religion. As for attention, that's up to any given person. I don't think people should be forced to pay attention to any religion.

I believe that everyone should have the right to privately practice whatever religion they desire.

Short answer: No.

Long answer: It depends on the culture of the particular region of each country, and the history too. It depends what the people vote on. Theres a lot of variables. Comparing Satanism to christianity is like apples and nuclear physics. No one in their right mind who knows what satanism churchs actually practice (animal sacrifice, blood drawing, former satanist told me all about it, etc.) would vote for satanist prayers to be allowed anywhere.

As if you actually know, for a fact, what goes on in a Satanist church. Like it's a thing you've ever seen.
