The Satanic Temple Of Los Angeles, a chapter of a nationwide satanic organization, hosted a massive ‘black mass’ Saturday night, complete with a live bloodletting ritual and a 45-minute lecture about demonic cats.

Guests could also attend a destruction ritual and an invocation ritual, both with live music. The event doubled as a fundraiser for the chapter’s causes, with include women’s reproductive rights, the First Amendment and prisoner’s rights.

The Satanic Temple, headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, has 24 chapters across the United states. Members of the movement, which calls itself an organized religion, do not believe in a personal Satan but say they preach rationalism and reject superstition.

VIP tickets to Saturday’s massive rally cost $66.60, while other guests paid $15. Attendees, many of which wore costume, were pictured by LAist enjoying six hours of Satanic activities, including live painting and tattooing.

Doors opened at 9 pm and the evening began with a comedy set by Satanist politician Steve Hill, who ran for the state Senate in California’s 21st district last year.

‘I’m a Satanist as far as trying to get people to understand that I don’t believe in the devil any more than I believe in God,’ Hill, a Democrat, once told Time Magazine.

‘All of it is stupid. But if I have to tell people I’m the devil to get them to listen, then, OK, I’m the devil.’

Guests were treated at 10 pm to a 45-minute lecture on demonic cats by writer, photographer and occult expert Dr Paul Koudounaris, who has also researched sexual encounters between the living and the dead.
