SATANISTS TO INTRODUCE AFTER SCHOOL SATAN CLUB
The Satantic Temple of Utah plans to unveil a new after school program Monday designed for the nation’s elementary-age children, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
The group plans to petition schools so its curriculum can be part of official clubs as early as this fall. The Satanists are targeting Utah, New York, Massachusetts, Arizona, Minnesota, Louisiana and Florida to include the curriculum. “It’s critical that children understand that there are multiple perspectives on all issues, and that they have a choice in how they think,” the Temple’s co-founder Doug Mesner told the Tribune.
Mesner told reporters the group doesn’t actually promote devil worship, instead it eschews any sort of belief in a supernatural being, supporting “scientific rationality” instead. The planned curriculum includes “healthful snacks,” “creative learning activities,” “a science lesson” and “an art project
We think it’s important for kids to be able to see multiple points of view, to reason things through, to have empathy and feelings of benevolence for their fellow human beings,” Utah chapter director Chalice Blythe told the Tribune.
Despite the group’s claims that it has no religious intentions, the graphics on its after school website are filled with horns and other signs traditionally associated with Satan. The group appears to be mostly anti-Christian, as most of the pages center around down-talking evangelical programs.
It's finished...the world is definitely coming to an end...just watch how this would get approved soon
