Satanists feel they are not treated equally by Riot Games

Satanists claim that Riot Games is not treating them fairly and have filed a petition against the company. League of Legends censors a lot of words, and Satan is one of them. However curiously enough other religious terms like God, Jesus, Allah, and the likes are not.

Some members of the religion have tried to reach out to Riot to un-censor the word, but have been met with a cookie cutter response telling them to go to the forums. Once at the forums these people have been met with harsh words, insults, and even some telling the poster to “kill themselves”. Thus a petition has been filed on Change to stop filtering the word Satan in the game. There are 27 signatures so far and the petition has even garnered the interest from the Church of Satan.

Now personally, I am uncomfortable with the Satanism and anything affiliated with it. That being said, these people do have a right to type or utter the name of the one they worship. Equality can’t be stopped where you are uncomfortable, as long as it isn’t harming you or others.
