THE DEVIL MADE THEM DO IT
Proof of devil worship in Tempe, Arizona?
Organizers of an after-school Satan club at Point Defiance Elementary School in Tacoma, Washington, have the green light to proceed, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.
The club would be the first after-school Satan club in Washington state, according to Seattle chapter head Lilith Starr. An earlier request to start a club in Mount Vernon was withdrawn because of scheduling issues with the school district there, she said.
After-school Satan clubs are being formed in nine communities around the United States, Starr told the Tacoma News Tribune.
Pastors from all over the city packed Shiloh Baptist Church Tuesday night, frustrated that the Satanic Temple of Seattle is establishing the after-school program at Point Defiance Elementary.
"We want to cut this off and defeat it before it ever gets a chance to take root," said one pastor.
"We are the taxpayers here and we ought to stand up and let them know they are not welcome, they don’t pay taxes here," said another leader.
STS had targeted a school in Mount Vernon, but shifted focus to Point Defiance to provide a counterpoint to the school’s already established Christian-based Good News club.
The Satanists bill themselves as all about scientific and critical thinking, not as devil worshipers.
Religious leaders feel this attitude is a gateway to introduce anti-religious ideology.
The Satanic Temple is a national organization headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts.
Volunteers sponsored by The Satanic Temple of Seattle will host an open house for Point Defiance parents, students, teachers and staff members Dec. 14, two days before the start of winter break.
(1) How is it that children cannot even wear a cross to school due to the alleged "separation of church and state" in the Constitution, but Satanists are allowed to congregate on that same "state" property.
(2) What will be served at the open house? Blood and vomit?
Your public education dollars in action! And people made fun of my brother for home schooling his children so they'd be exposed to the right values!
It used to be I just hated Seattle because of the Seahawks...thank you STS for giving me a much better reason!
