The Line Between Opinion and Crime

Led by: Minister Wiebke

Free Speech is literally free in the USA. In Germany, on the other hand, it is limited: the dignity of the individual is considered superior. The histories of the different nations led to this, for example in Germany the 2nd World War. Free speech in the USA includes holocaust denial, which is a punishable crime in Germany. In this service, Minister Wiebke leads a discussion about the limits of free speech in different nations with TST panelists from Europe, the USA and other parts of the world. How do these varied perspectives on free speech around the world influence our interpretation of The Satanic Temple’s approach to free speech?

This video is a recording of the full hour of the service led by Minister Wiebke on Saturday 15 April 2023.
