I interview filmmaker Penny Lane about her new documentary Hail Satan?, which looks at the surprising growth of The Satanic Temple, a six-year-old organization that engages in confrontational political activism while simultaneously attracting followers interested in their compassionate, rationalist, humanistic belief system. Hail Satan? is in theaters right now!
Our increasingly connected world means that religious violence in one part of the world can be directly influenced by religious violence in another part of the world, no matter how distant. Witness the fact that the Easter massacre of Catholics in Sri Lanka was revenge for, and the April 27th synagogue shooting in Poway, California was in solidarity with, the March 15th mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand.
