Satanic Temple Wants to Save Kids from Abusive Teachers

Given the right context, and everyone's permission, spanking can be a lot of fun. But that's probably not true for public school students in the 19 states where corporal punishment is still allowed. Thankfully, though, the Satanic Temple has stepped in to help.

After crusading for various free speech issues in schools, the Temple is now campaigning to end corporal punishment in public schools by launching the Protect Children Project. Children can register with the projectóregardless of religious affiliationóand it will notify that child's school board that any harm toward them is a violation of their civil rights.

"The Protect Children Project utilizes the First Amendment to protect public school students from being subjected to corporal punishment, solitary confinement, physical restraints, and the deprivation of bathroom access as these abusive practices violate our religious belief of bodily inviolability," according to the press release.
