Satan Worshipping Prisoner Demands Nevada Jail Change Menu to Reflect His Religious Beliefs… With Whole Foods

lastmeal

A Satanic panic is gripping America by the cajones. His Dark Majesty’s acolytes are no longer afraid of rebuke in the enlightened 21st century.

Harvard’s hosting a Black Mass, a Florida local wants to open a town council meeting with a Satanic prayer, while Oklahomans are poised to celebrate Lucifer’s legacy with a statue outside the Oklahoma State Capitol.

The list just goes on, and on, and on.

Now Alex C. Snelson, incarcerated in Nevada’s Washoe County Jail after being caught with some crystal, is exercising his rights as a religious minority. According to the pending federal suit, Alex claims he’s been denied access to whole foods, lacking mind-controlling substances like aspertame, and monosodium glutamate. Adding insult to injury, deputies at the facility have been mocking his requests, denying access.

There’s some bad news. Thumbing through my ancient copy of The Satanic Bible, I find no references to dietary restrictions, food, or anything culinary. On the other hand, LaVey, may Satan grant him peace, once feasted upon a cadaver’s leg during a seminar on Cannibalism and Human Sacrifice. The main course was basted with Triple Sec, grenadine, and fruit juice. Satanists relished the long pig, but blanched when it came to eating live caterpillars.

Another strike against him, prisons usually have a daily budget of $2.25 to feed an adult every day. Providing free-range chicken, fresh, hairloom tomatoes, and quinoa are certain to break the bank.

Do Satanists even view their beliefs as a “religion”? I’ve always heard that Satanism = (basicallay) each person is their own god….the only holiday they celebrate is their own birthday…stuff like that… am I wrong? I guess what I’m saying is if that is true then, wouldn’t there be no reason to identify this dude’s “right” to practice his “religion”? And since when do inmates have any rights at all? I thought that was the idea of prison; that you have been stripped of all your rights….as a punishment for violating the law…anyone?

Oh..they do have rights. They have the right to practice whatever religion they are a part of. Some even have the right to conjugal visits.Prison’s are held accountable when any right (with in reason)is denied the inmate. Of course,some rights we have in the free world is a moot point to an inmate. But freedom to practice religion is one right that strictly upheld.I have heard some beliefs on satanism by inmates and it’s pretty much a free for all-as in anything goes. No ramifications for murder and suicide etc.It seems to be a non religious religion. I know that… Read more »

All the judge has to do is look this serf-infatuated little scumbag in the eyes and ask him to explain the manufacturing process of the meth he was caught with, and how the use of that mind-controlling substance is in any way less harmful than MSG… FFS… I bet he’s totally serious, too. This disconnect between organic foods, free-trade and products made with raw petrol and smuggled inside babies is farcical. Drugs aren’t a personal choice issue they’re an ethical one. This guys a hypocrite.

Snelson is not a member of the Church of Satan, but have been contacted by the press about this situation. Our statement on dietary restrictions: “None. However, since Satanism respects animals, some Satanists may choose to be vegetarians.” Our complete guide for incarcerated individuals claiming to support the philosophy of THE SATANIC BIBLE can be read here: http://www.churchofsatan.com/info-for-chaplains.php

Let’s all be honest. Religion or philosophy, if worshipping an imaginary “all father god” does nothing but allow violence loving zealots to “feel good”, why spend energy on imaginary underlings of imperfection as if perfection could be a real thing to be attained? It’s all just unreasonable political opinion, two hands connected to the same body. Watch out for the gigglers on either side.
