If your kid isn’t into traditional activities like baseball or dance, have you thought about Satanic worship as an after-school option?
If so, you’re in luck, asthe Satanic Temple announced it will hope to offer after school Satan clubs in elementary schools in nine states as an alternative to other after school religious programs.
Theyhopeto rent space in public elementary schools to protest groups run by the Child Evangelism Fellowship, whose clubs have been able to hold meetings in public schools since winning a 2001 Supreme Court case.
Here’s the promo from the Satanic Temple, and honestly, it scared the crap out of me.
But with that said, there won’t be pagan worship or small animal sacrifices or anything.
In fact, the clubs will have kids learn about art, science, philosophy, and culture.
Lucien Grieves, the co-founder of the Satanic Temple, told the New York Post that they’re sponsoring the clubs to prove that when a Supreme Court victory protects one religion, it protects them all.
“Evangelical after-school clubs created a need for us to be there,” he said. “Theyre sending children the message that theyll burn in hell or be tortured for eternity. But this [program] teaches kids you can embrace the iconography of Satan and still lead a moral life.”
The clubs would be offered in several major U.S. cities likeSalt Lake City, Atlanta,Los Angeles, Pensacola, FL, Portland, OR, Seattle, Tucson, and Washington D.C.
Time will tell as to whether or not this becomes a viable option, because as everyone knows, the devil is in the details.
