INDIANAPOLIS — Members of The Satanic Temple won’t be sacrificing animals or drinking blood inside Indiana’s capitol building on Sept. 28.
They are, however, bringing a band.
And this particular band should be plenty to outrage multitudes of Hoosiers in this deep-red state.
Lucien Greaves, co-founder of The Satanic Temple, said this week he has permission from the state and hasn’t heard about any obstacles to the performance of his band Satanic Planet — whose logo for the “Let Us Burn” tour features an upside down cross.
His group was recognized by the Internal Revenue Service in 2019 as a religion, at least for tax purposes..
So the building where devout Christian and former Vice President Mike Pence served as governor will also now become the venue for Satanic Planet.
“Your use of the “Let Us Burn” and its corresponding logo is a violation and infringement of the Ministry’s duly registered trademarks, as “Let Us Burn” is a confusingly similar mark,” read the letter from Feucht’s lawyer.
Whether or not you actually like their music (you can watch their many music videos here) you ought to appreciate their marketing ploy. For example, here's another article which building on the contrbversy stirred up by following the Christain musician's tour:
