Do I have to be a Satanist to be ordained by The Satanic Temple?

Yes. The Satanic Temple is a non-theistic Satanic organization, meaning that we do not believe in the existence of a literal Satan, or a literal God. Instead, we draw inspiration from Satan as a fictional character symbolizing the Eternal Rebel in opposition to arbitrary authority, the heretic who questions sacred laws and rejects all tyrannical impositions. To find out more about what being a Satanist means to TST, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page on the main TST website.

If you are a secular humanist who supports the stances and activities of The Satanic Temple, but you do not think of yourself as a Satanist, we recommend you explore ordination through The Humanist Society, or any similar organization with a rigorous ordination program.
