Harvard University student club is hosting a satanic black mass reenactment celebrating witchcraft and satanic worship.
The event hosted by the Cultural Studies Club will feature a performance by The Satanic Temple. According to their website, the religious organization’s mission is “to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people.”
A black mass is a “magical ceremony” meant to parody a Catholic mass, supposedly during “Witches’ Sabbath”—a meeting of those practicing witchcraft. The ritual serves to mock God and worship the devil, even going so far as “to involve human sacrifice as well as obscenity and blasphemy of horrific proportions.”
