After school Satan clubs coming to public elementary schools

Rate this post

An organization that calls itself the Satanic Temple has been very active in promoting its overlord. It conducted a Black Mass and agitated, but failed, to build a 7-ft tall statue of Satan next to a 10 Commandments monument in Oklahoma City; actually erected the statue in Detroit; and wants prayer in school to the Devil.
Now, in the name of religious parity, the Satanic Temple is bringing After School Satan Clubs to America’s public elementary schools.
Another reason to home school your children.
In an archly-written article for The Washington Post on July 30, 2016, the clearly-biased-against-Christianity reporter Katherine Stewart (she’s the author of the objectively-titled book, writes that since Christian evangelical groups have after-school religious programming in public schools, the Satanic Temple is determined to provide young students with Satan clubs in the name of “choice”.

Katherine StewartNote: Katherine Stewart began her journalistic career at the left-wing Village Voice and is the author of the objectively-titled [sarc] book, The Good News Club: The Christian Right’s Stealth Assault on America’s Children.

As Satanic Temple co-founder Doug Mesner, who uses the more exotic-sounding alias Lucien Greaves, puts it, “It’s critical that children understand that there are multiple perspectives on all issues, and that they have a choice in how they think.”

As an example, there is an evangelical Christian after-school program known as the Good News Club, sponsored by an organization founded in 1937 called the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF). For most of their history, however, Good News Clubs were largely excluded from public schools out of concern that their presence would violate the Constitution. In 2001, however, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that to exclude an after-school program on account of the religious views of its sponsors amounted to a violation of free-speech rights. Stewart writes: “The CEF then went on a tear, and by 2011, it reported 3,560 Good News Clubs, putting them in more than 5 percent of the nation’s public elementary schools.”
On July 10, 2016, Satan Club chapter heads from New York, Boston, Utah and Arizona met in Salem, Mass. to talk strategy, with others from Minneapolis, Detroit, San Jose, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Florida participating online. The Satanic Temple has prepared a promotional video, as well as a website To cover After School Satan Club costs, including facility use fees and curriculum materials, the Satanic Temple is launching a crowdfunding campaign — which is how it pays for its other activities.
The Satanic Temple said that on Monday, August 1, it would introduce its After School Satan Club to public elementary schools by petitioning school officials with this letter.
The Satanic Temple insists its plan for public schoolchildren isn’t actually about promoting worship of the devil, although its name is the Satanic Temple, its logo is the Baphomet goat’s head on a pentagram, and the after school clubs are called Satan Clubs.
Satanic Temple logoMesner/Greaves says the Satanic Temple doesn’t espouse a belief in the existence of a supernatural being called Satan, Lucifer, or Beelzebub; that “Satan” is just a “metaphorical construct” intended to represent the rejection of all forms of tyranny over the human mind; and that the Satanic Temple rejects all forms of supernaturalism and is only committed to the view that scientific rationality provides the best measure of reality. Blah, blah, blah.
Amy Jensen, a volunteer “professional educator” in Tucson who has a master’s degree in curriculum, instruction and teaching from the University of Denver, says she has decided to lead an After School Satan Club at Roskruge, Arizona. She said, “I definitely have teaching experience and I have tutored inside the Tucson Unified School District. So I probably could speak with the teachers there, go in and see who be willing to help me make it happen. As a teacher, if I were deciding whether to teach that or the fear and hatred of other people’s beliefs, which is what Good News Clubs teach, I would choose what the Satanic Temple has available.”
The Liberty Counsel’s founder and chairman Mat Staver agrees that the Satanic Temple has a right to organize its clubs in public schools and takes the view that they can’t be banned so long as they’re not disruptive or engaging in rituals that put people at risk. He said, “I would definitely oppose after­-school Satanic clubs, but they have a First Amendment right to meet. I suspect, in this particular case, I can’t imagine there’s going to be a lot of students participating in this. It’s probably dust they’re kicking up and is likely to fade away in the near future for lack of interest.”
On the page of Katherine Stewart’s Washington Post article is a poll for readers on whether the Satanic Temple should be allowed to open After School Satan Clubs in elementary schools. As of the time of the publication of this post, the votes are:

  • 47%: They should be allowed
  • 53%: No, they shouldn’t

    Thanks for getting to word out about this Luciferian Lunacy! The basic message of Satanism is “do what thou wilt” regardless if who your actions harm. We can see that this is the worldview of the twin anti-Christs, GW Bush and Uncle Obama-Tom, Billery and Killary, and the Beast of Newtown clique. The man who called himself Lucifer 666, Aleister Crowley ate his own feces in Sicily, and although born into wealth died a pauper. If this mode of pathological thinking had any power at all why did Crowley end up poor and powerless. These people separate themselves from the Book of Life and will be spending Eternity in Hell for their “do what thou wilt” conduct.

    • Absolutely right, Will, and Alesiter Crowley is purported to have been the father of BARBARA BUSH! And you NAILED the NUT: “Do what Thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” At least two men mentioned in the Bible wound up doing the same thing: Dives and Solomon! Ask them how that worked out!

  2. Believe it or not, we have been witnessing the public ascendancy of Satanism in the West for a while here. As revolting as it is, it comes as no surprise: People and forces have been at work since the 1960’s to degrade the moral tone of society, and Satanism has been active throughout America for quite some time now: There are people not only in politics, but in every profession and way of life who are practicing Satanists, and their numbers are growing.
    Now here is the problem with the institutionalized side of education: It happens from time to time that school boards hold meetings, and everyone is allowed to vent their spleens on curriculum and what activities the school should sponsor. Ultimately, the school board makes its decision, and, absent any lawsuit, it stands. In cases where the school board members are appointed, the parents are out of luck: Those members remain in place until an administrator fires them.
    But there is something else going on, something more subterranean. In New York City, then-Mayor Bloomberg had condoms distributed in high schools, and he commenced this without public notice. Only once he was found out did he issue an “opt-out” order, in which parents could tell guidance counselors not to give condoms to their children. Bloomberg, for whatever his faults (and conniving dishonesty is one of them) was intelligent enough to know that such “opt-out notices” were as enforceable as toothless lions: Students could still get condoms from guidance counselors who never got the notice or ignored the notice, or from their friends! So I expect any “opt-out notice” for a Satanist club to be another toothless lion!
    These subterranean tactics in state (and even in private) education violate the legal precedent of stare decisis, and it is reason enough to abolish public education. But, more important, this is the tactic that dictates defeat for our side, on every single issue imaginable, in the courts, time after time. Just wait until we are ruled by unelected bureaucrats in every sphere of our lives. JUST WAIT until those bureaucrats are from the UN.
    Jesus Christ COMMANDS us to be LIONS, and lions who SHARPEN THEIR TEETH!

  3. “intended to represent the rejection of all forms of tyranny over the human mind;” Does that include public indoctrination? Homeschool indeed….

    • I propose an Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
      “A well-educated population, being necessary to the defense of a free Republic against tyranny, the rights of parents to educate their children, shall not be infringed.”

  4. What kind of people allow such a thing to take place within their local schools?

  6. I saw that on another website and noticed that ALL public elementary schs. in Prince Georges County, MD (a poverty-stricken Washington, D.C. suburb) will have this program. Most other places only have a sprinkling of partaking schools.
    Actually, it’s just MORE OF THE SAME with what goes on in the regular teaching hours. Common Core CANNOT be replaced from the curriculum by ANYONE–even the school boards. There are precious little things that can be deleted by concerned people from the programs. Also, the schools are limited in what additions they can make.
    And the big promoter Bill Gates’ children are educated in a private school that conspicuously has NO COMMON CORE (HYPOCRITE!).
    Planned Parenthood is now in the schools by diktat because PP helped write the “health” standards.
    Anyway, this is a troubling development–but in a way it’s good b/c it’s making people wake up from their slumber. Satan is already there!
    And notice that the poll shows it’s pretty evenly divided between those that oppose and those that are cool with it. The boobusses think this is just a “religious intolerance” issue [NOT].
    But then, these are Washington Post readers!
    Seriously, you need to take action if you are a parent
    This may be dated, but it looks pretty good. Don’t be afraid to be called stupid, officious, etc. by the “elite go-along to get ahead” in your town. You have only one go with your children’s early learning–don’t hand it over to satan himself.
    Pray and stand in the gap.

    What’s next? Sex Ed classes, with active participation with your nude teacher, goats and sheep?
    And people have nerve to say we aren’t in the End Times!

    You mentioned former NY mayor Bloomberg who criticized Trump’s business practices. “I’m a New Yorker,” he said, “and New Yorkers know a con when we see one.” However, as most people are unaware, Bloomberg invented high frequency trading, a swindle that allows the well connected to trade numerous times with knowledge of your stock buy or sell BEFORE yours posts! So much for knowing a con when he sees one. He is the BIGGEST ONE!

  9. So many dollars to steal, so little time. Hillary is taking as much as she can as fast as she can before the entire economy fails.

  10. Separation of Church and State! Ooooor get ready, because Satan is going to want equal representation! And how long before we hear from the Jews, the Muslims, the Hindu’s, the Buddhists, the Sun Worshipers, and on and on!…Some of the Founding Fathers must be laughing out loud in their graves!

    • Separation of church and state isn’t found in the Constitution; it’s from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury, CT Baptists, assuring them that government wouldn’t interfere in their practice of religion.

  11. My thoughts are much the same as those of Dave, traildustfotm, Steven Broiles, William Brandon Shanley, cs, DCG, & patrioticgofer: we are witness to and suffer from an era of false & absurd promises that can never be kept or attained, because they were meant for distraction and deception, not wisdom and enlightenment.
    Is there a way out of this dilemma? Yes, and I have mentioned it many times here and on other sites as well: we need to read and re-read “Ideas Have Consequences”, the master work of Dr Richard M Weaver. First published in 1948 and never out of print since, it was the genesis or rebirth of true conservatism at long last in North America.
    Dr Weaver’s prescriptions are simple and effective, as they go to the root of these problems: first, we must regain our sense of piety, a word rarely heard today. Next we need to understand and implement the knowledge that “Appearances do not exhaust reality.” Piety is I think a concept we can accept and incorporate; however, it will be more difficult to get our stubbornly entrenched culture of ‘materialism as reality’ to submit to universal concepts such as justice, natural orders, and so very much more, as these are not material.
    To close, here is Dr Weaver’s prescription for our debauch and debacle: “The only redemption lies in restraint imposed by idea; but our ideas, if they are not to worsen the confusion, must be harmonized by some vision. Our task is much like finding the relationship between faith and reason for an age that does not know the meaning of faith.”

    Jews, Christians and Muslims share sacred texts.

    • If “Jews, Christians and Muslims share sacred texts” (which is highly debatable, BTW — the sacred text for post-crucifixion Jews is the vile, hateful, and super-narcissistic “we’re the chosen people” Talmud), how come there are no protests about the Satanic Temple and its After School Satan Clubs from Jews or Muslims?

      • That is one of the most successful group efforts of all time. By setting themselves apart from all others, insisting that the congregants not “mix”, creating a vile text in response to the initiation of Christianity, and all that has come since, look where we are today.
        A tiny minority has managed to control the conversation and anything that might reasonably flow from it. In fairness the churches have not helped. There was a time when this problem was discussed openly. Not anymore. Now the fad is “ecumenism” and pretending that “we’re all the same”. How I wish that were true. I’m afraid that it simply isn’t.
        The history us easily accessed. One of my favorite authors, Douglas Reed, prepared a masterful overview of this issue in “The Controversy of Zion”. It is available for free online. I encourage everyone to read it.
        The fact is that Christianity has little in common with “The Three Monotheistic Religions” that we’ve heard about most of our lives. Any resemblance to that is simply wishful thinking. It is akin to saying “we all grew up on a planet with one sun”. That’s about the extent of commonality.
        So, while I certainly share in the sentiment that would have us all one big, happy human family, we have a way to go there. Unless major changes occur we are not likely to make much progress in that effort.

      • The Old Testament is a Jewish text that both Jews and Christians use; the changes were a) by the Jews to emphasize differences and b) by Martin Luther who truncated the Old Testament to match the Jewish text used in his day, which is not the same as that which was used when Jesus walked the Earth. As far as what Muslims do, Mohammed plagiarized the Bible and continued with the Arian heresy although I’m not aware that Islam actually uses any part of the Bible.
        Re: no protests by Jews and Muslims, the satanists are protesting Christianity and Islam is from the devil.
