Despite condemnation by the Archdiocese of Boston, Harvard Chaplains, student religious groups, and many alumni and students on campus, an organization of Harvard Extension School students will move forward with plans to host a staging of a satanic “black mass” on campus on Monday.
A black mass ceremony is a ritual performed by satanic cults to parody the Catholic Church Mass. Historically, the ceremony features a ritual of sacrilege of the Catholic host, or the sacred bread used in the Eucharist, which becomes the body of Jesus Christ upon consecration.
But remember, mocking the beliefs of Mohammedans is “racist” and “intolerant.”
Update: Canceled… with whiny little note from the organizers.
“The point of this event is to challenge the stigmatization of marginalized groups.”
