About TST Washington
The Satanic Temple Washington congregation is a nontheistic religious organization open to all residents of Washington state. Our congregation provides an opportunity for people who identify as nontheistic religious Satanists to come together to practice their Satanism in various ways, including nontheistic ritual, community service, activism, and social opportunities. For more information, please see our Frequently Asked Questions section.
Our religion is nontheistic; we do not believe in or worship any supernatural entities, including God or Satan. For us, Satan is a literary symbol representing rebellion against unjust, tyrannical authority. Our guiding principles are the Seven Tenets, which promote compassion, empathy, justice, bodily autonomy, and reason.

Community Service: Menstruatin' with Satan
In accordance with the tenets of Satanism, we respect the bodily autonomy of all people. The Satanic Temple of Washington successfully gathered 286 pounds of menstrual products for those in need during our most recent Menstruatin' with Satan campaign.
THE SEVEN TENETS OF THE SATANIC TEMPLE
1. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
2. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
3. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
4. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
5. Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
6. People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
7. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.
