‘After School Satan Club’ up for vote at PA elementary school

Educators in Pennsylvania have a major decision ahead of them that goes beyond math and science.

Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania will consider the introduction of an After School Satan Club at Tuesday night’s meeting. The club, which was proposed and pushed by a parent at the school, was initially rejected by the principal. However, the club is now up for a probationary vote at the school board.

“The After School Satan Club is an after-school program that promotes self-directed education by supporting the intellectual and creative interests of students,” the Satanic Temple states on its website.

The Satanic Temple has been making a concerted effort to push into elementary and grade schools in opposition to Christian after-school clubs.

Parents protested outside the Jane Addams Elementary School in Moline when the first after-school Satan Club met there January. 

The Satanic Temple, which runs the program, said students would be offered activities such as science and crafts projects, puzzles and games — and that they would learn about benevolence, empathy, critical thinking, problem-solving and creative expression, too.

Lucien Greaves, the Satanic Temple spokesperson, told Fox News about the clubs, “I’m hoping that with our presence, people can see that good people can have different perspectives, sometimes on the same mythology, but not mean any harm.”
