Despite growing controversy and parental outrage, chapters of the so-called “After School Satan Club” promoting lawlessness and evil to children are proliferating in government schools across America. Already, clubs are operating in various states and districts, and the Satanic Temple, which oversees them, is working to expand them nationwide wherever Christian children gather.
Scandal surrounding the clubs surfaced most recently in Chesapeake, Virginia, where school board members are considering whether to approve an After School Satan Club (ASSC) in light of “safety concerns.” The original sponsor of the club at B.M. Williams Primary School decided to withdraw, so the satanists had to go back to the drawing board and find a new one.
Club promoters say they do not worship Satan and merely want to focus on science, games and art with the children while promoting intellectual development. However, community members have expressed overwhelming opposition to the club during school board meetings. “Do not allow this club to take place, for Satan is a liar and the father of all lies,” a local resident was quoted as saying in media reports.
The diabolical clubs honoring the “Father of Lies” and the “Prince of Demons,” a ministry of the Satanic Temple that recruits young people into the openly anti-Christ movement, represent the next step in the rapid falling away from God of Americans. But it should not be surprising, as the Bible repeatedly refers to Satan as the “god” or the “prince” of this world due to the influence he holds over so many people.
“Obviously we don’t view Satan as evil, and it really doesn’t matter to us what your mythology is surrounding Satan,” movement co-founder Lucian Greaves said on Fox News recently about the clubs. “You need to ask yourself if your distaste over us identifying as Satanists is strong enough that you would abandon the principles of free speech and religious liberty.”
While the Virginia club is being considered by authorities, similar clubs from California and Oregon to Utah and Ohio have already been approved. Some have been operating for years. More than five years ago, an After School Satan Club was approved at Vista Elementary School in Taylorsville, Utah, with officials saying there was nothing they could do to stop it.
But that is a lie, too. Dishonest lawyers, judges and their dupes continually point to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution as the reason why Satanists must be allowed to access children on public property. The same assertion was made by the Satanic Temple recently to display a “Baby Baphomet” statue in the Illinois State Capitol.
And yet, anyone who reads the Amendment would instantly recognize the absurdity of that argument. It merely says Congress “shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” When the founders wrote and ratified that, most states had established churches. The authors would have recoiled in horror to see how evil forces have tortured the plain language to mean something so ludicrous.
Ironically, in his dissent when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down prayer and Bible reading in school in the early 1960s, Justice Potter Stewart correctly observed that this would be establishing the religion of secularism — better known as humanism. Boiled down to its essence, humanism is a modern re-stating of the original lie peddled by Satan: That man can be his own god.
The emergence of actual Satanic clubs in elementary schools is merely the next logical step after several generations of godless and humanist indoctrination of children at taxpayer expense. Families and parents must protect their children, because it is clear governments and their allies will not do it. In fact, they appear to be the primary threat.
