Minneapolis' Muslim community is getting some compassion from what many might think is an unlikely source.
The Satanic Temple Minneapolis Chapter posted a message on its
" target="_blank">Facebook page and website, offering to accompany any Muslim person who may be afraid to leave their home following backlash many in the community have faced since the terrorist attacks in Paris.
"Our offer comes from a place of genuine compassion for our fellow human beings. It's not to ride the tide of sentiment or capitalize on people for further name recognition. Let us know if you or someone you know need the sort of assistance we are offering. If you have contact with the Muslim community, make them aware of our service as well."
The group's kind gesture is getting a lot of attention since being posted Wednesday morning. It has been liked more than 1,500 times, shared 1,400 times and garnered nearly 100 comments, with many people thanking the group for their generosity and act of humanity.
The left-leaning blog explained more about Satanic groups, saying they "aren't typically worshippers of satan, they're usually just mocking those who are trying to force their religion into places it doesn't belong."
The Satanic Temple's website explains more about the organization, saying it encourages "benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will."
Anyone who wants to take advantage of the offer is asked to contact the group by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through
