Thieves targeted a Satanic group's so-called Christmas tree in San Jose, California, this week by stealing some of its occult-related ornaments.
What is this?
“The tree targeted was decorated with pentagrams and other demonic symbols, its decorations sponsored by a Bay Area Satanic organization,” KPIX-TV reported.
The tree is one of more than 500 on display at the annual Christmas in the Park event.
KPIX's report included comments that support the Satanic group, but it offered no Christian rebuttal of the blasphemous display.
“Some may wonder why a Satanic group would have a decorated tree at a holiday display like Christmas in the Park, but not the organizers of the event or the people who set up the tree,” the report states.
If anyone's still wondering, it's because devil-worshipers’ “religion” typically inverts Christian symbols and mocks Jesus Christ. That’s why occultists use inverted crosses, which are seen in the TV station's video footage of the tree.
The TV station refers to the Christmas tree event as “South Bay’s biggest holiday celebration.”
“Bay Area Satanist Simone Chavoor and her friend Tabitha spent Wednesday afternoon sprucing up the tree that was recently robbed,” the report states. “The group decorated the tree on Black Friday, complete with an elaborate goat head as a tree topper.”
And why would their tree be a target?
“It could be anything from kids, to people who don’t agree with our viewpoint to people who are actually in agreement with us and think that our ornaments are cool,” said Chavoor. She told the TV station she is a “member of a local Satanic Temple as well as the independent group Satanic Bay Area, which sponsored this tree’s decorations."

Decorating a Christmas tree with occult symbols is just one of the public stunts staged by Satanists who worship “the father of all lies.”
Others include carting an 8-foot Baphomet goat statue around the nation and publicly displaying it under the guise of support for the First Amendment, billboards condemning corporal punishment of kids and after-school Satan clubs.
An organizer for the Christmas event said it's not uncommon for ornaments to be stolen from the trees.
“It happens every year that one tree will get its ornaments stolen," said Jason Minsky an organizer with Christmas in the Park. "We encourage people not to put ornaments on the trees that they think people will want to take. We encourage people to tie the ornaments to the tree so that they are harder to take.”
Like other occult-related agendas, the tree is apparently a way to foist occult beliefs into public platforms and then demand political correctness.
What are people saying?
The report does exactly that, stating:
"To some people, the close juxtaposition of Christian and Satanic symbols at a community Christmas event is no big deal.
'It’s freedom of speech and religion,' said San Jose resident Grant Talarico. 'So as far as I’m concerned the tree is fine.'
Others said the Satanic tree could be offensive given the location.
'I’m not Christian, but I’m sure some people would be offended because Christmas is a Christian holiday. And this seems like anti, since they have an upside down cross and everything,' said Jag Jit of San Jose."
All of this goes beyond removing the word “Christmas” and nativity scenes from schools as well as private businesses.
Now Christians are being asked to tolerate Christmas trees decorated with upside-down crosses and other devil-worshiper symbols.
