Satan Club Holds Meetings in Calif. Elementary School

‘They put Satan in the name for a reason...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) Some parents and grandparents became outraged after Golden Hills Elementary School in Tehachapi, California, permitted an “After School Satan Club” to hold meetings every month in the school cafeteria, according to the Daily Wire.

“The Satanic Temple began communication with the district in late October and submitted its completed Civic Center Facilities User Permit Application on Oct. 21,” the Tehachapi News wrote. “The organization was informed on Nov. 14 that use of the cafeteria at Golden Hills was approved.”

Some people who have children and grandchildren in that school expressed their indignation.

“I think it’s disgusting,” Sheila Knight, grandparent to a 5th-grader, said.

“I understand the school has to allow them because they allow other after-school programs such as the Good News, which is a Christian-based after-school program, that one I’m okay with, but I can’t imagine why anyone would want their child to attend this Satanic group.”

Lucien Greaves, the co-founder and spokesperson of the After School Satan Club that was founded by the Satanic Temple and the Reason Alliance, said that “there’s nothing to be offended by.”

“We keep religious matters out of the teachings of the after-school Satan clubs and people often ask us, well then why include Satanism at all, being that people are going to be offended by it?” he said.

“… there’s nothing to be offended by and we don’t want people to be unaware of who we are when we run these programs, as we think there would be a more intense backlash if we were trying to hide it.”

Paul Hicks, who will lead the club, said that the club will provide an “alternative point of view” to Christianity and that kids are not going to be turned into Satan worshipers there.

“There’s currently a Good News Club there which is teaching kids to go save souls for Jesus, at the school. We want to give an alternative point of view,” he said.

“I’m not teaching these kids to be Satanic, I’m not teaching these kids that they need to hail Satan or identify as Satanists, what we’re doing is we’re [using] critical thinking, we’re teaching science, we’re teaching empathy and benevolence.”

People on the Internet, however, realized that they are just lying.

“So several people have told me that the new Satan after-school club at Golden Hills elementary is not a religion, but a philosophy club… Then why did they choose Satan? Why not the Jean-Paul Sartre existentialism club? Why not the Descartes club?” one person wrote on the Tehachapi Ask, Raves & Rants Facebook page.

“They put Satan in the name for a reason.”
