Satanic Temple To Offer Alternative To Good News Clubs

The Satanic Temple, whose agenda is secularist and not the promotion of devil worship, is again using its provocative name and doctrines of equal access to promote its agenda of separation of church and state. As reported last week by the Washington Post, the organization is introducing the After School Satan Club to public elementary schools, modeled after the widespread Christian-based Good News Clubs. In a letter (full text) to selected school districts, organizers say:

The After School Satan Club (ASSC) meets once a month immediately after school for one to one and a half hours.... ASSC meetings typically include a healthy snack, literature lesson, creative learning activities, science lesson, puzzle solving and art project. Every child receives a membership card and must have a signed parental permission slip to attend.

He had it right.

So Bush era midnight basketball was more effective?

The Ass Club? I'm not sure if that makes it more likely or less likely to be attended by kids. I know it brings a smile to my face.

On what grounds?

Don't see what all the fuss is about...this is far more justifiable and less plain trollish than a lot of their other initiatives. I would think it'd be good policy for a school to require a certain level of interest from parents for a group to form an after school club, but if whatever rules the school has in place are followed, I don't see the issue. If the point is to show how unjust/unfair other such clubs are, I think it's likely to backfire.
