How about NO: People say Santa should now be female or gender neutral

From Daily Mirror: Many will always think of Father Christmas a jolly white-bearded fellow with a penchant for wearing red and eating treats left beside the chimney.

But now people are wondering whether Santa needs an update for modern times, as one company has offered the possibility of Father Christmas becoming a gender neutral person.

GraphicSprings, a logo creation company, polled 400 people from the US and UK about potential ways to modernise Santa, using the top suggestions to poll a further 4,000 people on how they envision him.

In total over one quarter (27 per cent) of respondents reckon he should be rebranded as female or gender neutral, according to 6 ABC.

Over on social media the results of the survey have had mixed reactions, with some claiming the idea is “ridiculous”, while others don’t understand the point in arguing over a made up character.

But given Santa Claus is a fictional character designed simply to make Christmas fun for the kids, does it really matter what’s underneath his signature red outfit?

The issue of what gender Santa should be has taken on a new significance in recent times, as people on social media and even politicians are taking a stance on the issue.

Arun Chandran, an Independent councillor for Newton Aycliffe in County Durham, moved to ban female Santa Claus impersonators from taking part in an annual winter parade last month, after two women volunteered for the job. He said that the concept of a female Santa Claus was “a form of political correctness,” adding that it was “a male role”, according to Metro.

Piers Morgan also chimed in on the subject, saying on Good Morning Britain in response to the story last month: “He’s called Father Christmas! The world’s gone nuts.

Negative opinions on the matter hasn’t stopped some people moving forward with a different take on the traditionally male character.

Ponsonby Central, a shopping complex in Auckland, New Zealand, unveiled a Santa Claus modelled on Mary Poppins, complete wearing knickers and fishnet stockings last month. According to Stuff.co.nz , the staff at Ponsonby Central and Blunt said their representation of Santa can be Mary Poppins or whatever race/gender/persuasion they prefer.

2019 ‘Naughty or Nice’ Christmas Shopping List

American Family Association (AFA) has published the 2019 “Naughty or Nice” Christmas shopping list.

AFA only rates nationally-recognized companies, not local or regional businesses.

In rating how “Christmas friendly” a company is, AFA examined the company’s advertising in the print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website, social media (Facebook, Twitter), and/or personal visits to the store. If a company’s ads have references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.) and use the word “Christmas,” AFA considers the company to be “Christmas friendly”. If a company’s ads have items associated with Christmas, but do not use the word “Christmas,” then the company is considered as censoring “Christmas”.

Using those criteria, AFA classifies the companies into three groups:

(1) Nice — companies that are “Christmas friendly”:

Transvestites mock the birth of Christ with child-grooming ‘Drag Queen Christmas’ show

If you think Wichita, Kansas and Omaha, Nebraska to be conservative Middle America instead of playgrounds of the Left, you are sadly mistaken.

On December 15 (Wichita) and 16 (Omaha), the Orpheum Theater in the two cities will host “A Drag Queen Christmas” — a show that makes a mockery of the birth of Jesus with prancing men wearing hideous makeup and draped in clothes eschewed by real women.

TFP Student Action has issued this warning:

A “Drag Queen Christmas” show is scheduled to take place on December 16, 2019 at Orpheum Theater in Omaha, Nebraska [and Wichita, Kansas].  Such performances feature men dressed in scanty “drag” mocking Christmas, and often performing immoral behavior.  To make matters worse, while the performance warns of this “naughty” behavior, it also says that “all ages welcome”!

According to the description:

“A Drag Queen Christmas — The Naughty Tour. It’s a magical (and hilarious) evening of holiday performances featuring contestants from the reality television show on VH1. Here come the queens in their biggest holiday costumes with back-up dancers and a full stage production. All ages welcome. Warning — adult content (because they’re drag queens)…” (Omaha World-Herald, www.omaha.com, emphasis added)

This show insults the birth of Christ.  It blurs the lines established by God regarding sexuality and is a danger to our children and society.  Please sign your peaceful protest.  Urge Orpheum Theater to cancel “Drag Queen Christmas” immediately.

Not only are children (“all ages welcome”) invited to watch “A Drag Queen Christmas” even though the show admits it contains “adult content,” during a performance of the show in California, a transvestite had a little girl in the audience sit with him on the stage.

I took the above screenshot from a YouTube video of the show.

In fact, a transvestite who performs in “story hours” for children in public libraries outright admits that their intent is to “groom” the next generation. (See “Drag queen on library story hour: ‘We’re grooming next generation’“)

To “groom” is to prepare. For what are these men-in-women’s-clothes grooming or preparing children?

Pedophiles groom children. The Cambridge Dictionary defines “grooming” a child as “to become friends with a child, especially the internet, with the intention of committing a sexual offence.”

TFP Student Action has an online petition asking the Orpheum Theater in Omaha to cancel the show. To sign, go here.

The mask comes off: Chick-fil-A donates to anti-Christian, pro-abort, LGBT organizations

About two weeks ago on November 18, 2019, acceding to pressure from LGBTs, Chick-fil-A announced they will no-longer be making donations to Christian groups, such as The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army.

See Dave’s post “Chick-fil-A Stabs Supporters Squarely in the Back

In explaining Chick-fil-A’s funding decisions, Rodney Bullard, VP of Corporate Responsibility and Executive Director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation said future donations would go to charities in support of education, the homeless and ending hunger because “We don’t want our intent and our work to be encumbered by someone else’s politics or cultural war. If something gets in the way of our mission, that is something that we are mindful of and cognizant of.”

But Salvation Army points out in a press release that it makes no sense for Chick-fil-A to divert funding from the Salvation Army (SA) to hunger, education and homeless organizations because the SA does all three on a massive scale, except the SA doesn’t espouse an LGBT ideology.

Now comes news that Chick-fil-A is sending a $2,500 donation to the anti-Christian and far-left Southern Poverty Law Center and with that, the transmorgrification of Chick-fil-A into an enemy of Christians and of the Right is complete.

Cal Thomas reports for LifeNews.com, Dec. 3, 2019, that conservatives and evangelical Christians had regarded Chick-fil-A as a model company because its founder, the late S. Truett Cathy, ordered that his restaurants be closed on Sundays to allow employees to attend church and spend time with their families. Chick-fil-A also donated to charities that supported the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman, which enraged the Left. LGBT activists declared a boycott of the restaurants which was countered by supporters of Chick-fil-A who showed up en masse to dine in the restaurant chain.

Without any noticeable new pressure, Chick-fil-A suddenly announced it would no longer be donating to Christian charities like The Salvation Army, an organization not known for political activism. Then the restaurant chain announced it is sending a $2,500 donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing organization that lists some Christian ministries as “hate groups,” including the pro-life Family Research Council (FRC).

FRC President Tony Perkins is calling on conservatives to seek a fast-food alternative because “Not only has Chick-fil-A abandoned donations to Christian groups, including the Salvation Army, it has donated to one of the most extreme anti-Christian groups in America” — the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

It turns out the SPLC isn’t the only left-wing organization to which Chick-fil-A donates.

A Nov. 26, 2019 report by Ryan Bromberger for LifeNews.com lists these other recipients of Chick-fil-A’s largesse:

  1. YWCA, the deeply political, radically pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQ organization that repeatedly partners with Planned Parenthood.
  2. The DC-based New Leadership Council that describes itself as a “hub of progressive millennial thought leadership” to “support one another along their individual path to a more progressive political and cultural landscape.”
  3. Chick-fil-A donated $50,000 to The Pace Center for Girls, a pro-abort education and advocacy group that featured feminist Gloria Steinem as their keynote speaker for their most recent girls’ Summit.
  4. In 2017, Chick-fil-A donated $38,700 to Usher’s New Look, R&B star Usher Raymond IV’s liberal non-profit that hosted a Disruptivator Summit on organizing the Left for pivotal social issues.
  5. Chick-fil-A gave $27,500 in 2017 and $25,000 in 2019 to Chris 180, a pro-LGBT behavioral health and child welfare service agency that received an award from the the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) — the multi-million dollar LGBT powerhouse that recently pushed for the legalization of prostitution in DC.
  6. Chick-fil-A donates hundreds of thousands a year to Junior Achievement, which in 2016, joined a coalition (Georgia Prospers) of pro-LGBT businesses in a campaign (“Too Busy to Hate”) to politically oppose the religious liberty First Amendment Defense Act from passing in Georgia.

These groups, and many more funded by Chick-fil-A, are clearly political and liberal. So much for “not being encumbered by someone else’s politics or cultural war.”

Note: Sigils are symbols used in magic or the pictorial signatures of angels and demons.

The book is published by Canadian publisher Koyama Press. The author of the book is a Canadian illustrator and occultist named Aaron Leighton, whose Facebook profile picture is his black cat, Darien, in a witch’s pointed hat:

This is the link to the book on Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=A%20Children%E2%80%99s%20Book%20of%20Demons&cat_id=3920

This is the link to the book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=A+Children%27s+Book+of+Demons&link_code=qs&sourceid=Mozilla-search&tag=mozilla-20

This is what Amazon says about the book:

Don’t want to take out the trash tonight? Maybe you’re swimming in homework? Perhaps that big bully is being a real drag? Well grab your coloured pencils and sigil drawing skills and dial up some demons! This paranormal parody is filled to the brim with funny spirits more silly than scary!

Product details

  • Age Range: 5 – 10 years
  • Grade Level: Kindergarten – 5
  • Paperback: 48 pages
  • Publisher: Koyama Press (July 16, 2019)

About the Author

Here are some reviews of the book:

“Leighton’s renderings of the multieyed, multiarmed, sharp-toothed demons are outlandish without being creepy, and the creative concept will likely inspire some readers to create demons of their own.” ― Publishers Weekly

“I wish I had this book when I was a child, warding off the creeps and crawlies underneath my bed, unaware that with the right guidance I could’ve been harnessing their supernatural powers for my own benefit!” ― John Martz, author of Burt’s Way Home and Evie and the Truth About Witches

Below is a reader’s one-star review of the book:

This is purely Satanic. What kind of children’s book teaches kids to summon demons and write sigils? This is degeneracy it’s fullest form and it makes me sick that this is even allowed on the selves of ANY store.

Want to know what makes it worse? It teaches kids the original Greek, Hebrew and Egyptian names of these malicious demons… keep your kids away from this book and if they get their hands on it somehow BURN IT!!!!

Although Target did offer the book, they seem to have removed it. If you go to https://www.target.com/p/a-children-s-book-of-demons-by-aaron-leighton-hardcover/-/A-76619196, you get this message:

UPDATE (January 17, 2020)

On December 11, 2019, the International Association of Exorcists released a statement warning that A Children’s Book of Demons dangerously normalizes satanism by tricking children into thinking the occult is a game, and eventually leads one to devil worship, “causes them to lose their identity and to be morally, psychologically and spiritually destroyed.” (Crux)

The true meaning of Thanksgiving: A Christian holiday to thank God

Thanksgiving is one of the most beloved holidays in America.

But in the hands of “progressives,” public schools and the Hate America Media (HAM), Thanksgiving has long become yet another occasion for white guilt. If you want an illustration, see my 2010 post, “Thanksgiving card from my liberal friend“.

But did you know that unlike other secular holidays like Labor Day or the Fourth of July, the Thanksgiving that you think is a secular holiday is actually a national holiday that is explicitly religious in nature?

As shown in the quotes below, Thanksgiving was instituted as a day to thank God for the many blessings He has bestowed on America.

George Washington prays at Valley Forge, winter of 1777-1778 (painting by Arnold Friberg)

In 1789, in his first year in office, President George Washington called for a day of Thanksgiving because —

“it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor.”

In 1815, President James Madison issued a proclamation for “a day of thanksgiving and of devout acknowledgments to Almighty God for His great goodness.” After Madison, however, Thanksgiving reverted to a regional celebration in New England for 48 years.

In a proclamation in the midst of the Civil War on October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving an official national holiday. Here is the full text of his proclamation:

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle, or the ship; the axe had enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years, with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington, this third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-eighth.

Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) takes this occasion to thank our readers for their loyalty to this little-blog-that-can that persists in spite of all the malicious efforts to silence us: the August 15, 2018 take-down by WordPress, and the many distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) bot and spam attacks since.

As the owner of FOTM, I also want to take this occasion to thank our writers, who give so selflessly of their labor, time and talent, without a single penny in remuneration. I also owe a special “thank you” to Andy, the IT wiz who resolved and prevents the DDOS attacks by shielding FOTM with an impervious security wall.

But most of all, I thank the magnificent and magnanimous Triune Godhead for the many blessings He’s given America, in spite of our failings, perversities, and rising evil; and for the blessings He’s given me which have sustained and buoyed me through my profound and traumatic losses this year.

Psalm 100

A Psalm of Thanksgiving

Shout joyfully to the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord, with gladness;
come before Him with joyful song.
Know that the Lord, is God,
He made us, we belong to Him,
we are His people, the flock He shepherds.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
His courts with praise.
Give thanks to Him, bless His name;
good indeed is the Lord,
His mercy endures forever,
His faithfulness lasts through every generation.

On this Thanksgiving Day, what do you thank the Creator for?

God bless you, and may God bless America,

Chick-fil-A Stabs Supporters Squarely in the Back

On Monday Chick-fil-A, under pressure from the BLTG pervert community, announced they will no-longer be making donations to The Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army.

This unfortunate announcement comes not long after we normal Americans lined up for hours at their locations on the day the above mentioned pervert community had announced a nation-wide boycott of the company’s restaurants.

The response was such that several of their locations in my area had to close due to the fact they ran out of chicken.

Now I am sorry I participated.

I really do not understand the thinking of any corporation that is willing to alienate a large percentage of their customer base in order to kiss up to the gay mafia, which makes up about two percent of the overall population.

I have a feeling the company thinks by making this move the BLTG fascists are going to leave them alone.

As we have seen time and time again, they could not be more wrong.

You can be sure I have spent my last dime in one of their stores.

Lesbian Episcopal priest is new head of National Abortion Federation

Abortion is the deliberate and intentional killing of an unborn human being. In the United States and countless countries across the world, in the name of a woman’s “right” over her body, that killing is given legitimacy by law and vehemently defended by “feminists”.

The pro-abortion movement is nothing less than a demonic death cult. In recent years, the unremitting corruption of the United States has even led to Christian and Jewish clergy “blessing” abortion clinics. See, for example:

Now, a lesbian Episcopal priest, the “very reverend” Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, takes the abomination further by becoming the president and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) — a multinational organization of abortion providers and practitioners in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and many Eurpean countries. According to the NAF, its members “perform” half of all abortions in North America.

Ragsdale is the president and professor of theology of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In a speech at a Jan. 24, 2010 event organized by the Jane Fund, a Massachusetts-based group that raises funds for abortions, Ragsdale called abortion “a blessing” and said she was “angry and fed up” at people who had spoken out again her sexuality and her radical stance on abortion.

Claire Chretien reports for LifeSiteNews, Nov. 5, 2019, that the National Abortion Federation (NAF) has announced that its new president and CEO is Katherine Ragsdale, a lesbian Episcopal “priest” and longtime abortion activist.

When the news was announced, Ragsdale, who had been NAF’s interim president and CEO since September 2018, extolled abortion providers as “some of my personal heroes and modern-day saints.”

NAF’s previous CEO and president, Vicki Saporta, was paid a salary of $392,018 in 2017, according to the organization’s publicly available tax records.

In 2011, Ragsdale married another female Episcopal priest named Mally Lloyd. at the Anglican Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston. Bishop M. Thomas Shaw performed the ceremony. It is unclear if Ragsdale and Lloyd are still together, as Ragsdale’s bio on NAF’s website makes no mention of Lloyd.

In an April 2019 speech at a Kentucky Reproductive Freedom Fund fundraiser, Ragsdale claimed that the Bible says nothing about abortion and that it’s dishonest and manipulative to call the human person in the womb a “baby.” Her audience laughed when Ragsdale mocked pro-life advocates who oppose partial-birth abortion by saying: “‘One inch from life,’ they say while showing a picture of a Gerber baby. Apart from ‘one inch from life’ being a lie, the Gerber baby image is a lie. And actually, using the word ‘baby’ is a manipulative lie.”

Comments by NAF-affiliated abortionists, however, paint a different picture. Undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a prolife organization founded by journalist David Daleidan, taken at a NAF conference shows abortionists admitting that the work they do is “killing,” complaining how “difficult” it is to tear apart a fetus, and lamenting that they’re not given a place to discuss the “heads that get stuck that we can’t get out.”

See also “S.F. jury awards Planned Parenthood $2.2M in damages against pro-life journalist David Daleidan

Notorious late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, at least eight of whose “patients” had a “medical emergency” in the course of their abortion, also admitted to a BBC reporter, “I think that it is a baby, and I use [the word] with patients.” When the reporter hesitantly asked, “And you don’t have a problem…with…killing a baby?,” Carhart said without flinching, “I have no problem if it’s in the mother’s uterus.”

Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life and president of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, told LifeSiteNews:

“For decades, Katherine Ragsdale, a false prophet, has been trying to put religious vestments on child-killing. She led the ‘Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights’ (now the ‘Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice’), which actually provides rites of blessing for parents about to kill their children, and for the facilities in which the blood is shed…[and also provides] Scripture studies that attempt to say exactly the opposite of what Scripture says about what God thinks of the shedding of innocent blood.”

Fr. Pavone said it’s not surprising that NAF chose Ragsdale to lead it:

“It actually reveals one of the greatest weaknesses of the abortion industry: science is not on their side, logic is not on their side, and history is not on their side. They ran out of arguments a long time ago to try to justify abortion. So now, all they have left is to disguise it in ‘spirituality.’ They try in vain to take the stigma out of abortion — but that effort continues, and that is what this new development represents.

For decades, Fr. Pavone has helped helps former abortionists and their staff “deal with the wounds abortion inflicts on them.” He said:

“A big part of their healing is to dig themselves out of the many layers of lies that they told themselves to justify the killing they carried out. Those lies take many forms: rationalization; intellectualization; and here, in the example of False Prophet Ragsdale’s leadership, ‘spiritualization.’ And the lies by which spiritual and biblical language attempt to justify murder are among the most damaging to those who fall captive to them.”

3 million page views since June 20th 2017

WordPress tried to destroy FOTM along with many other conservative blogs

In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s election failure, in spite of DNC vote fraud and a complicit lying news media, the tech giants realized that a significant factor in Donald Trump’s success was “alternative” online media. They decided on a comprehensive effort to take down conservative communication.

FOTM was forced to move to new hosting servers, and with the help of some significant IT experts, continued to publish new posts.

Three million visits since that time, and the “Little Blog The Could” is still standing.

With one year before the 2020 presidential election, it is likely the enemies of the Constitution will become more rash in their tactics.

Let’s buckle up for some turbulence, and commit our way to the Lord.

Knoxville ‘Children’s Ministry’ to teach satanism to Tenneesee public school children

The Left, especially satanists, have learned to use the U.S. Constitution against decent Americans and orthodox Christians.

A case in point: In the name of the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of religion, satanists claim their “religious right” to erect devil statues in public squares and to proselytize in schools and colleges. See:

The latest incident is in Knoxville, Tennessee.

There’s a Tennessee statute that excuses students to attend an hour-long released time course in religious moral instruction if authorized by the local school district.

WVLT CBS 8 reports, November 4, 2019, that Knox County Schools Superintendent Bob Thomas gave the okay for a test program that would allow school children to miss class for church-sponsored Bible study.

Thomas agreed to test the program at Sterchi Elementary School after the Elgin Foundation and The Church at Sterchi Hills approached the school about the opportunity.

Elgin Foundation Executive Director Tim Rogers said the foundation sponsors several established bible release time programs across East Tennessee, including Anderson, Roane, Scott and Union Counties: “We just educate churches and schools in the legality of it. We ask schools to just simply accommodate parents who would participate in that.”

After the Knox County Schools announced the pilot release program, a group calling themselves the Satanic Children’s Ministry of Knoxville (SCMK) demanded equal opportunity for children who do not wish to participate in studying the Bible to attend SCMK’s satanic study program.

A representative from SCMK said: “We believe church and state should be separate and that includes the schools. Unfortunately, organizations such as Elgin Children’s Foundation and Emerald Youth have been attempting to dismantle this separation in Knoxville for quite some time now. We have done our best to counteract the indoctrination that they are working on bringing into schools but the only way we can successfully do that at this point is to exercise our own religious freedom by implementing a program of our own.”

Like satanic groups elsewhere in the U.S., SCMK claims to stand against bigotry and hate, and that they do not to believe in a literal Satan, but merely use him as a symbol of free thought: “Our goal is to teach children the empathy, compassion, and kindness that [our] tenets…promote. We initially thought we would just be signing out our own children with this program but amid the outrage, we have learned the interest in our program extends beyond our families.”

In a Facebook post, SCMK said they hope the school board will vote to allow their satanic release program at a December meeting:

“Satanic Children’s Ministry of Knoxville will be coming to your local elementary with our Satanic Release Program! For one hour once a month, your children can be released from their school to come learn about Baphomet!”

A spokesperson for Satanic Children’s Ministry of Knoxville gave the Daily Mail this written statement:

The Elgin Foundation and The Church at Sterchi Hills will broadcast that their program is “opt-in” and children do not have to attend. They do not announce that their goals are to promote proselytization in our public classrooms by teaching children to do this for them. ‘They will send the kids back with toys, candy, and propaganda to help them achieve these goals.

This creates problems in the classroom not just for us as Satanists but also any Muslim, Jewish, Hindu or atheist child in the classroom as the children involved in the Bible Release Time are taught to challenge the beliefs of their classmates and promote that their god is the one true god. We do not send our children to schools to be converted by outside religious organizations. We send them to get a state-approved education.

Satanic Children’s Ministry would prefer not to introduce our own program. We do believe in separation of church and state; however, if another religion is allowed to introduce a program to indoctrinate children, we feel the need to step up and ensure our children have their own program to attend. Our children would already be losing precious instructional time due to the schools accommodating Elgin’s program, so we might as well sign them out and allow them to receive their own religious education focusing on the tenets of Satanism.

Our preferred outcome is that all parents of Knox Co realize the importance of keeping religion out of public schools completely. It is in the best interest for all children to keep these programs out of school all together and in homes and churches where they belong. They create divisiveness among students based on their religion creating conditions that are optimal for bullying.

The statement concluded by calling on Knox County residents to contact their local schools and school board representatives about blocking the implementation of release time programs.

The spokesperson said SCMK is “legitimate” and had filed for 501(c)3 non-profit status, but refused to identify the five people on the board “due to threats of violence.” The spokesperson said that between 5 to 10 children are initially expected to take part in their satanic program, but there “may be more people interested” than initially thought.

The spokesperson also claims that many Knox County teachers have expressed support for the organization and its intentions:

“They may not be for the actual program, but they seem to appreciate the fact that it is shining a light on the problem with allowing one church to have their religious release program in the school. From our conversations, it sounds like many teachers at Sterchi Elementary are against the program as it takes away from their instruction time. The school completely rearranged the class schedule to make room for The Church at Sterchi Hill’s Bible Release Program and that alone seem like a promotion of a religion within the school. The overwhelming majority of people we have talked to are against a policy allowing release programs, but the principal at Sterchi Elementary and certain school board members – against their constituent’s wishes – are pushing for it.”

WVLT reached out to all school board members asking how they would vote on the proposed Bible-study release policy. Only 4 out of 9 responded:

  • Susan Horn, District 5 – Would approve
  • Virginia Babb, District 4 – Wouldn’t approve
  • Evetty Satterfield- District 1 – Undecided
  • Terry Hill, District 6 – Would approve

Virginia Babb of District 4 told Daily Mail: “I have never supported the Bible release program and it has nothing to do with the Satanic Ministry wanting to offer their own program. Should a policy be passed allowing for Bible Release then I support any organization who meets the criteria of the program to be able to offer it.”
