Any bets on how long it takes the Satanic Temple to have the Seven Tenets be included as well?

I. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.
II. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
III. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
IV. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one's own.
V. Beliefs should conform to one's best scientific understanding of the world. One should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit one's beliefs.
VI. People are fallible. If one makes a mistake, one should do one's best to rectify it and resolve any harm that might have been caused.
VII. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

They’ll just get some corrupt judge to wave their hands and rule “not like that”.

Did you know that in the past even judges appointed by Republicans weren't blatantly corrupt?

There was a time when judges appointed by one side of the aisle would tend to lean towards the other side because of the aforementioned lack of blatant corruption and ideological based appointments.
