The legal counsel for the Satanic cult said that the decision to disallow the Satanic cult to form a student club relied upon the unfair judgment of the York County superintendent.
“The Northern York County superintendent claimed to be concerned with public backlash due to the lack of interested parties.”
In their opinion, the school never gave the Satanic cult a fair chance to access the public institution.
“This is proof their club’s communicative activities popularity was improperly considered when determining their future with equal access to government property, the school.”
Lucien Greaves, the one-eyed Co-Founder of The Satanic Temple, said that his cult rebels against order and forwards certain values that they prefer.
“We believe that Satan is a great metaphor for rebellion against tyranny and is the embodiment of all of the values we espouse.”
According to the cult’s website, the group is not attempting to convert children to Satanism, they are only trying to teach children free inquiry, which they believe will lead to Satanism.
The Temple’s website claims that “Proselytization is not our goal, and we’re not interested in converting children to Satanism.”
“After School Satan Clubs will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us. We prefer to give children an appreciation of the natural wonders surrounding them, not a fear of everlasting other-worldly horrors,” they concluded.
