Arizona’s capital city Phoenix is known for being ‘hot as hell’ with temperatures reaching 122 degrees F (50 C), but some residents are hot under the collar because a Satanic Temple will deliver an invocation at a city council meeting next month.

The decision came under fire after the city said it cannot “dictate religious viewpoints”.

Michelle Shortt and Stu de Haan, from the Tucson branch of the Satanic Temple, will give the invocation.

Speaking to Fox News, Shortt said people misunderstood the Temple and that they don’t believe in Satan, instead seeing him as a metaphor for rational inquiry.

Shortt said their application to deliver the invocation is not about their beliefs, but about “religious liberty and democratic plurality.”

Four council members reacted angrily to the decision, saying it was not about diversity but “stupidity.”

They have submitted an emergency clause requesting the council discuss changes to the invocation process, including having a rotating schedule of council members pick a group to deliver it.
