Harvard Student Club to Host Satanic Black Mass

A Harvard University student club is hosting a satanic black mass on May 12 to be staged by The Satanic Temple.

The Cultural Studies Club characterizes the event as a "reenactment" to be "performed" by The Satanic Temple, but reportedly, the group has obtained and will be using a Consecrated Eucharistic Host - making the event as real as it gets as far as the Catholic Church is concerned.

The Black Mass is "a magical ceremony and inversion or parody of the Catholic Mass that was indulged in ostensibly for the purpose of mocking God and worshipping the devil; a rite that was said to involve human sacrifice as well as obscenity and blasphemy of horrific proportions."

According to their website, the Satanic Temple's mission is “to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people.” How mocking the Catholic Church accomplishes that is anyone's guess.

Campus Reform reports that the Cultural Studies Club at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education hosted a “History of Satanic Worship” with academics and practicing Satanists, last year.

A skeptical Elizabeth Scalia of Patheos, double-checked with Priya Dua, of The Satanic Temple’s Public Relations office for confirmation on the use of a Consecrated Host. Dua confirmed in an e-mail that "yes, they have obtained and will use a Consecrated Host during this 're-enactment”'

Questions remain on how the Host was obtained, and why they would use a Consecrated, as opposed to unconsecrated Host.

As the only source about the use of a Consecrated Host comes from The Satanic Temple itself, it is entirely possible that the group is not being honest and is trying to create a buzz for attention.

The Harvard Extension School has issued the following statement:

    An independent student organization, the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club, plans to host a controversial student event involving a historical reenactment of a black mass ceremony that has a narrator providing historical context and background.

    Students at Harvard Extension School, like students at colleges across the nation, organize and operate a number of independent student organizations, representing a wide range of student interests.

    Harvard Extension School does not endorse the views or activities of any independent student organization. But we do support the rights of our students and faculty to speak and assemble freely.

    In this case, we understand that this independent student organization, the Cultural Studies Club, is hosting a series of events—including a Shinto tea ceremony, a Shaker exhibition, and a Buddhist presentation on meditation—as part of a student-led effort to explore different cultures.

Nowhere in the statement is the use of a real Consecrated Host addressed.

Satan's just a loveable cross between Mary Poppins and the tooth fairy, isn't he?

There was a time, not all that long ago that this would have been offered as a satirical story in the Harvard Lampoon.

This Ivy League scum wouldn't dare piss on a Koran, or burn a Rainbow flag, or smash a menorah, or serve chitlin's and fried chicken in their student refectory during Black History month.

But they'll sanction desecrating the most sacred ceremony in the Roman Catholic Church. 

If Catholics reacted as Muslims would react to something like this, the "Harvard Cultural Club" room and the building it was located in, would be in flames at this very moment.

Harvard’s satanic black mass canceled after outrage
By Fox News
May 12, 2014 | 8:27pm

A Harvard student group’s planned satanic “black mass” has reportedly been canceled after widespread condemnation from religious and educational leaders, who called the event an affront to the faithful.

MyFoxBoston.com reports that The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club announced Monday it would no longer hold the event because negotiations broke down between the group and the bar where it was scheduled to be held. The club was unable to find another location to hold the mass.

The group said that the New York-based Satanic Temple, which had co-organized the event, planned to still hold the mass in an undisclosed, private location to “reaffirm their respect for the Satanic faith and to demonstrate that the most powerful response to offensive speech is to shame those who marginalize others by letting their own words and actions speak for themselves.”  ...

Rest of story

I suspect the event was truly canceled only after its organizers were informed of a pending demonstration and boycott by the Black Students Association.
