In response to after-school Christian Good News Clubs at public schools, a group called Satanic Temple hopes to set up After School Satan Clubs at elementary schools, reports the Washington Post.
“It’s critical that children understand that there are multiple perspectives on all issues, and that they have a choice in how they think,” said Doug Mesner, the Satanic Temple’s co-founder.
Advocates are petitioning public school officials across the country to authorize clubs, reports the Post. “The promotional video, which feels like a mash-up of a horror movie trailer and a ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch, will serve to promote the new club along with its website — Afterschoolsatan.com.”
I don’t think organized Satan worship will catch on. Most kids prefer to go to the devil in their own way.
