PSA - Delete any asks you receive about "joyofsatan.org!"
We've been through the "Gold Star Lesbian" spam asks, as well as the amegaotaku/rekka007 ones, and it seems that the new copypasta spam ask everyone is receiving is one where people are asked what they think of Joyofsatan.org, claiming them to be "the largest Satanist organization in the world."
These asks are mostly sent to users who frequently talk about the occult and/or witchcraft, feminist bloggers, and Jewish users, with the message slightly altered for each person it's sent to. Here are the two most common variations of the ask:"What do you think of Joyofsatan.org? They claim to follow the Pagan Goddess Lilith/Lalitha, they’re pro-choice and they’re the largest Satanist group in the world." <- This one also occasionally includes "they support women's rights" after "they're pro-choice." This also seems to be the most commonly sent ask."What do you think of Joyofsatan.org? They claim to follow the Sumerian God Enki-Satan and they’ve become the largest Satanist group in the world."
Although these asks are usually sent on anon, they're also sent by the burner account 88643468, presumably to bypass anyone who has anon asks turned off, so I suggest blocking that account, especially if you have anon asks turned off.
Now, the reason you should delete these asks, instead of engaging, is because the Joy of Satan Ministries in question is a Neo-Nazi group, as detailed on the Wikipedia page I just linked, and these asks appear to be a recruiting tactic, going by the types of users most commonly spammed with the asks, and how the asks are re-worded depending on who they're sent to; instead of a singular copypasta that gets sent to everyone, it's variations of the copypasta that are each targeted towards a different demographic.
The people sending these asks want you and your followers to go to the Joy of Satan website, so that it gains more traffic and, of course, to suck people into their white supremacist cult.
So please, please, don't engage, just delete the asks and block the 88643468 account, and if someone you follow answers one of these asks, urge them to delete their post and to block the 88643468 account for extra measure. Right now is also a good time to disable anonymous asks, or even take it a step further and only allow asks from people you follow, just in case 88643468 isn't the only burner account.
Please share this.
Edit: They do in fact have another burner account; please block jezebel-tarot. Also, as many people have pointed out and I myself noticed while typing this out, the other burner account's URL starts with "88" which is a Neo-Nazi dogwhistle.
They are also targeting the following groups:
Hindu users, now claiming that JoS is "the largest Hindu group" and claiming to follow Shiva in an attempt to attract them.
Black users, attempting to attract them to the site by talking about Blacks for Satan and ATRs.
Catholic users and Christian users, unsurprisingly, no doubt to get hateclicks as traffic to their website, and "debate" from the person receiving the ask.
Atheist users, probably with the same intent of getting hateclicks and "debate."
In general, they seem to target anyone who follows any religion, again no doubt to get "debate" out of them.
Speaking of how these people are trying to bait others into "debating" them, here is one of the four lovely asks I received just this morning, which I've noticed other people also receive this specific ask after telling these bastards to fuck off for being white supremacists:"Joyofsatan.org are not white supremacists. Joyofsatan.org (JoS) is ran by people of color. JoS follows non-white Pagan Gods and gay Gods. JoS has a black high priestess, Asian high priest, Hispanic High Priestess, etc. Josafrica.com was created by Shannon Outlaw whom is a black woman and the high priestess of JoS. The JoS websites have repeatedly stated that people of any race can join them. According to ancient-forums.com which is the official JoS forums, there’s thousands upon thousands of non-white and mixed race JoS members that have their own spaces on the forum. I’m a mixed race person of color. The Abrahamic religions are anti-Satanic, anti-Pagan, anti-women and anti-gay so why can’t JoS be anti-Abrahamic? JoS supports women’s rights and gay rights. JoS was founded by a woman and worships Pagan Goddesses."
The fact I and others have received this ask, and variations of it making similar claims that JoS is "ran by people of color" and isn't actually racist, all after pointing out that they're a white supremacist cult, is EXACTLY why I am urging people to delete the asks they receive instead of engaging. As I said before, they WANT people to "debate" them as it gets them more attention.
I know this post has over 8.5k notes at the time of me making this edit, but I urge people to reblog this edit instead.
"It’s often unhealthy to hyper-analyze your sexuality to the point where how you experience it changes where you belong. This is why the idea that broader terms are somehow more restrictive is baffling. Continuously breaking labels down and creating terminology for each facet of one’s identity shrinks communities until it’s just one person convinced that they’re the only one who relates to their experiences. It isolates people and ignores the importance of individuality within a collective identity."

The author also dropped some gems in the last paragraph of the short article:
i like the concept of soulmates—not a “you’re destined to meet me, and love me” kind of soulmate, but a “i’d pick you, every time.” kind of soulmate. a “no matter what happens, and what has happened, i want to go through it with you.” kind of soulmate. a “i love you by choice, and you’re a blessing, and i’m going to continue thinking about you this way not because i have to but because i want to.” kind of soulmate. a “you help me rest easy when everything is difficult” kind of soulmate. a “in every possible outcome, i want you there, to share it with me.” kind of soulmate.
rly scared by how the term "elites" is being normalized politically
bc it specifically serves to obfuscate class power, so that instead of saying "the rich" you say "elites," so you lose that specificity and now "elite" can mean all sorts of pther things (people with certain politics, people from certain areas, JEWISH PEOPLE)
This is also how you sell people living paycheck to paycheck in major cities as somehow "out of touch elites" while dudes who own car dealerships and tow truck companies in the south and midwest are "salt of the earth"
