Back in January, the “After School Satan Club,” an after school activity sponsored by the Satanic Temple, tweeted out that its competitor to the Christian “Good News Club” is back:
Does your child’s school need an after-school club as an alternative to the Good News Club or other religious clubs? After School Satan Club (ASSC) is back! https://t.co/meoLJJsYiE #EducatinWithSatan #ASSC #AfterSchoolSatan #TheSatanicTemple pic.twitter.com/8ihCDLlQPM

Apparently, no good deed goes unpunished and literal Satanists want to “save” kids from learning the Gospel by pushing a Satanist club option on the schools and offering it to the impressionable minds of the youth.
Describing the after school activity on its website, the Satanic Temple says:
The After School Satan Clubs meet at select public schools where Good News Clubs also operate. Trained educators provide activities and learning opportunities, which students are free to engage in, or they may opt to explore other interests that may be aided by available resources. The environment is open and parents are welcome to participate. While the classes are designed to promote intellectual and emotional development in accordance with TST’s tenets, no proselytization or religious instruction takes place.
Proselytization is not our goal, and we’re not interested in converting children to Satanism. After School Satan Clubs will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us.
We prefer to give children an appreciation of the natural wonders surrounding them, not a fear of everlasting other-worldly horrors.
So, the Satanists want to try to limit how many kids believe in Christ by creating a club named after the prince of darkness, and are even willing to admit it. Horrible.
Fortunately, there’s at least one sane school board in America, the Northern York County School District board in Pennsylvania. It shot down the idea and isn’t letting Satanists into the school to poison the minds of the youth. As Fox 43 reports:
In a 8-1 vote, the Northern York County School District board voted against the approval of the “After School Satan Club.”
The After School Satan Club is a program offered by The Satanic Temple- that was proposed for kids at Northern Elementary School.
Expressing her views on the subject and summing up how many might feel if devil worshippers tried to propagandize to their kids, one parent in the district said “I never thought anything like this would come to the district… I don’t want my son to be exposed to anything of the sort.”
Indeed. No one thinks or wants to think that such poison will enter their kids’ school. But, like the woke theologists capturing the schools, it appears that the Satanists see an opportunity too. Fortunately, 8 of 9 members of the school board were sane enough to recognize how absolutely terrible of an idea that is.
The co-founder of the Satanic Temple, for his part, vowed to keep fighting for the right to put the “If they deny us the use of a public facility, which they have no right to do it’ll have to move into litigation, costly litigation that the community is going to have to pay for.”
Hopefully the school board remains strong in standing against Satan and those who worship him.
