Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! – Isaiah 5:20
FoxNews.com reports that
Elementary schoolchildren in Moline, Illinois, have been invited this week to an “after-school Satan club” with five different meeting dates planned for early this year — starting Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022 — according to a flyer placed in the school’s lobby and shared on social media.
Some parents are angry about their children’s exposure to information about the club, apparently prompting the superintendent of schools to weigh in. The Satanic Temple says on its website that it operates the clubs “at select public schools where Good News Clubs also operate.”
Given the “many mounting concerns and questions” about the “Satan club” flyer that was made available to students at Jane Addams Elementary School in Moline, Illinois, Dr. Rachel Savage of Moline-Coal Valley Schools wrote a letter to parents, which was also shared online.
“I wanted to take a moment and share some additional information regarding the after-school club you may have heard about,” she wrote. “I know there are many mounting concerns and questions. I hear you and I understand.”
The superintendent noted that the “facility rental for this after-school activity was not generated by the district and is not affiliated with Jane Addams or the district. It is nothing that involves or impacts the school day.”
She made the following point as well: “A parent from within our district reached out to the national after-school satan club, informing them that Jane Addams Elementary School, in Moline, offers a child evangelism fellowship club and asked that they bring their program to that school as well, to offer parents a choice of different viewpoints.”
Fox News Digital, which reached out to the district, received a reply on Thursday afternoon, confirming that the flyer that has been circulating is indeed legitimate but stressing that it was “not generated by the district, not distributed to all students, and not affiliated with any teacher in the district,” according to Candace Sountris, communications director for the school district.
Patti Garibay, founder and executive director of American Heritage Girls, a Christian alternative to the Girl Scouts, told Fox News Digital in an email about the club, “At a time when youth are experiencing a mental health pandemic, it is outrageous that a school district would allow a club based on the master of confusion.”
The superintendent of Moline-Coal Valley Schools said in her online note to parents that the flyers were “not distributed” to all students. She said the “flyers and promotional materials” were sent to the school by the organization “to be placed in the lobby.” There, flyers were made available for children to peruse and pick up if they chose to do so.
She made these other points in her memo:
“Board of education policy allows for community use of our facilities.”
“The district approves many facility use agreements with local churches.”
“Since we have allowed religious entities to rent our facilities after school hours, we are not permitted to discriminate against different religious viewpoints.”
“To illegally deny their organization (viewpoint) to pay to rent our publicly funded institution, after school hours, subjects the district to a discrimination lawsuit, which we will not win, likely taking thousands upon thousands of taxpayer dollars away from our teachers, staff, and classrooms.”
The After-School Satan Club is scheduled to meet from 2:45 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the school in Moline on Thursday, Jan. 13, as well as on Feb. 10, March 10, April 14, and May 12, as Fox 2 noted.
The club’s flyer says children are offered science projects, puzzles, games, arts and crafts projects, and nature activities.
One Moline parent, who shared a photo of the club’s flyer online, received incredulous responses to her post, including this: “Wait what????? How is this even a thing? Who approved this?”
The Satanic Temple website notes that the mission of the group — which is nationwide — is to “encourage benevolence and empathy, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense, oppose injustice, and undertake noble pursuits.”
The group also says its fundamental tenets are as follows:
“One should strive to act with compassion and empathy toward all creatures in accordance with reason.”
“The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.”
“One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.”
“The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo one’s own.”
In an FAQ section, the Satanic Temple group says on its website in response to the question “Do you worship Satan?”: “No, nor do we believe in the existence of Satan or the supernatural.”
It goes on: “The Satanic Temple believes that religion can, and should, be divorced from superstition. As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions.”
The Moline parent amplified her post on Tuesday to say this: “I will add that the flyer [about the after-school Satan club] was only allowed due to the rules and regulations that the school has to allow it. My kids attend a pretty good school. I may also add that no teacher physically passed out the flyers.”
Another individual shared this on Facebook, “Our poor world is headed to hell on the back of a rocket!”
Someone else wrote, “[This] will continue [until] parents take back their schools and kids.”
If you believe that an organization named “The Satanic Temple” does NOT worship Satan, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.
In September of 2013, YouGov.com conducted a poll which showed that almost six in ten Americans believe that Satan is real, and more than half of Americans believe that people can be possessed by demons.
Is all this upheaval which average American Families are attempting to shield their children from with no help from he Biden-Harris Administration, including this “Satanic Temple”, “Antifa”, “The Far Left”, and the rest of these evil Anti-American immature idiots, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?
If you look at 80% of the movies that Tinsel Town produces for public consumption nowadays, they seek to glorify the Powers of Darkness….and they seem to be very popular with young Americans.
Why is the Occult, including Satan and his demons, so fascinating to impressionable young Americans?
People who take the existence of Satan lightly, eventually wind up in some sort of trouble, and those who worship Satan wind up in even greater trouble.
Back in the 1960s, the late, beautiful actress Jayne Mansfield posed for a series of publicity pictures with the Head Priest of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey. The pictures showing her with LaVey, included several shots of taking their version of Communion, simulating drinking blood from a goblet, offered by the priest. She even wore a pink and black medallion of Satan and the goat-headed Baphomet to the 1966 San Francisco Film Festival. Later, the beautiful actress died in a freak car accident in which she was decapitated.
Now, far be it from me to link one to the other. That is up for you to decide for yourself.
Is all this upheaval our nation is currently facing, caused by the Democrats, their Propaganda Arm, the MSM, and their young minions, due to some sort of Satanic Influence attempting to tip the scales in the fight between Good and Evil, across our land?
John Adams, the second President of these United States, delivered the following message to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts on October 11, 1798:
While our country remains untainted with the principles and manners which are now producing desolation in so many parts of the world; while she continues sincere, and incapable of insidious and impious policy, we shall have the strongest reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned us by Providence. But should the people of America once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another, and towards foreign nations, which assumes the language of justice and moderation while it is practising iniquity and extravagance, and displays I have received from Major-General Hull and Brigadier, General Walker your unanimous address from Lexington, animated with a martial spirit, and expressed with a military dignity becoming your character and the memorable plains on which it was adopted. In the most captivating manner the charming pictures of candor, frankness, and sincerity, while it is rioting in rapine and insolence, this country will be the most miserable habitation in the World; because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The reason that our nation is facing the difficulties we are is the belief by those who proclaim themselves to be the “smartest people in the room”, that they are above the old-fashioned, passe notions of morality and ethics, good and evil, and the Sovereignty of God.
In the opinion of this Christian American living in the Heartland, they have made a grave mistake.
Evil exists and these fools opened the door to Satan in our society a long time ago, just like the Far Left Democrats in our American Education System are now..
When it all comes crashing down around them, what are they going to say?
The Devil made me do it?
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12
