Virginia Elementary School To Host Satan Club For Students

Students at a Chesapeake, Virginia primary school will have the option to attend an “After School Satan Club” in the B.M. Williams Primary School library starting Dec. 15.

The Satanic Temple is advertising the after school club on the organization’s Facebook page, calling it an “environment free from threats of eternal damnation.”

Should Satanic clubs be allowed to meet in schools?

“The Satanic Temple’s After School Satan Club will be there for the children of Chesapeake, Virginia, starting Dec. 15,” the organization wrote in the social media post. “We will teach critical thinking, problem-solving, and promote compassion.”

Further, the temple is distributing a flyer on Twitter that says Satan is a “literary figure” who represents “rejecting tyranny.”

“The Satanic Temple is a non-theistic religion that views Satan as a literary figure who represents a metaphorical construct of rejecting tyranny and championing the human mind and spirit,” the flyer reads. “After School Satan Club does not attempt to convert children to any religious ideology. Instead, the Satanic Temple supports children to think for themselves.”

In a statement, Chesapeake Public School’s (CPS) superintendent Jared Cotton defended the school’s decision to host the club, saying rejecting the organization due to its religious beliefs would violate the law, per a Fox News report.

“This is common practice among school districts around the state and nation,” the statement read. “Over the years, different religious groups have requested and been allowed to rent our facilities after hours. By law, CPS cannot discriminate based on beliefs among groups wishing to rent our facilities.”

He added that it is common practice for community organizations to use publicly funded buildings outside of school hours.

Fox also reports a public hearing concerning the After School Satan Club is scheduled for Dec. 12, just three days before the club’s first scheduled meeting.
