Satanic Temple a societal scourge only godly citizens can rout

The Satanic Temple has become both a blot on America and a sad commentary on the direction of this nation's moral compass. This is what happens when a nation turns from God. The wolves that were kept outside the gate are suddenly allowed in -- and in they come. Published April 26, 2022
