Satanists plan to send materials to Orange County schools

Satanists plan to send materials to Orange County schools
Tampa Bay Times Gradebook Log, 9/15/14

The Satanic Temple is at it again.

The group that once planned a rally to support Florida Gov. Rick Scott's signature permitting school districts to let students offer "inspirational messages" at school functions is now celebrating the Orange School Board's decision allowing the distribution of religious materials on its campuses.

It plans to circulate pamphlets related to the Temple’s tenets, philosophy and practice of Satanism, and about the legal right to practice Satanism in school.

“We would never seek to establish a precedent of disseminating our religious materials in public schools because we believe our constitutional values are better served by respecting a strong separation of Church and State," spokesman Lucien Greaves explained. "However, if a public school board is going to allow religious pamphlets and full Bibles to be distributed to students — as is the case in Orange County, Florida — we think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions, as opposed to standing idly by while one religious voice dominates the discourse and delivers propaganda to youth."

2. This should be fun.

Love it when these Christians who want to indoctrinate kids have other religions to deal with and they are not allowed to create a Protestant theocracy. They can't wrap their heads around the idea of religious freedom for OTHER religions or no religion, because they are so convinced they are right. And they do it by making people feel bad about themselves. Yeah, very unhealthy.

3. If the gideons are allowed to do it, so should satanists be allowed.

Personally as a parent, I'd chase them both off.
