‘After-School Satan Club’ Targeting Children Ages 6 to 11 at Illinois Elementary School Sparks Outrage

Moline, IL – An Illinois school district is under fire for allowing an ‘after-school Satan Club’ program being offered by The Satanic Temple.

Parents are outraged after a flyer inviting Jane Addams Elementary students ages 6 to 11 to an after school Satan Club circulated social media this week.

The Satanic Temple’s co-founder claimed the Satan Club won’t try to convert children to Satanism or force them to worship the devil.

“This actually isn’t a club that’s meant to proselytize Satanism or even engage in discussions about religious opinion,” Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves told WQAD. “This is an educational program meant to focus on critical thinking and just basic education skills.”

The Belleville News-Democrat reported:

An Illinois school district is defending an after-school program being offered by The Satanic Temple, a national religious and human rights group.

Many parents are reportedly furious over the meetings that will be held at Jane Addams Elementary School in Moline.

Dr. Rachel Savage, the superintendent for Moline-Coal Valley Schools, said the school and its teachers are not involved in the club. Flyers were placed in the lobby of the school and parents must sign a permission slip to allow their children to attend, just as they do for Boys and Girls Scouts or any other club.

She said the Board of Education allows its facilities to be used for community use.

“To illegally deny their organization 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 tax-payer dollars away from our teachers, staff and classrooms,” Savage said in a statement Wednesday, Jan. 12.

The statement from Savage came after many parents voiced concern over the club, WQAD reported.

Satan is after our children. Pray for this nation.

Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
