Satanic Temple preps 'After School Satan Club' rollout

(Worthy News) - The Satanic Temple plans to host after-school activities in districts across the country.

Students who attend an evangelical Christian after-school program known as the Good News Club will soon be offered a “satanic” alternative. The Satanic Temple said its programs will show children “there are multiple perspectives on all issues, and that they have a choice in how they think.”

Doug Mesner, who goes by the professional name of Lucien Greaves, spoke to The Washington Post on Saturday about the group’s plans. He is the co-founder of the Satanic Temple along with Malcolm Jarry.

“We are only doing this because Good News Clubs have created a need for this,” Mr. Greaves said. “If Good News Clubs would operate in churches rather than public schools, that need would disappear. But our point is that if you let one religion into the public schools, you have to let others, otherwise it’s an establishment of religion. […] We’ve moved well beyond being a simple political ploy and into being a very sincere movement that seeks to separate religion from superstition.” [ Source ]
