In an interview with the British magazine Attitude, Lucien Greaves, the co-founder of The Satanic Temple in the United States, says that “more than 50% of our membership is LGBTQ,” and that is a “conservative estimate.”
Attitude is a best-selling gay magazine, founded in 1994. The Satanic Temple was founded in 2013 and it promotes a secular humanist agenda. The Temple, based in Salem, Mass., denies that there is an actual Satan and it claims that it does not worship the Devil.
“It would be a conservative estimate to say that more than 50 per cent of our membership is LGBTQ,” Greaves told Attitude. “I think that’s because they feel disowned and disenfranchised from the traditional religious institutions.”
