SO….I guess Satan Clubs will be springing up across America now?  I HOPE not.   Funny that their point is, “If we let Christians meet here, we have to let all ‘religiously affiliated’ groups…..is Satan ‘religiously affiliated’??

Interesting is that Baysider and I are studying the Book of Daniel right now;  

“Nebuchadnezzar declared, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent His angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him. They violated the king’s command and risked their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.”  Daniel 3:28

Please pray against the information below …..PLEASE PRAY NOBODY COMES!     AMEN.

School district defends ‘After School Satan Club’ after promotional flyers surface

Published: Jan. 12, 2022 at 1:39 PM PST

MOLINE, Illinois (KWQC/Gray News) – An Illinois school district released a statement defending a controversial after school club after flyers sponsored by the Satanic Temple surfaced at an elementary school within the district.

The “After School Satan Club” is set to have its first meeting Thursday, according to TV6.

The flyer found within the Moline-Coal Valley School District is advertised for 1st-5th graders regardless of religious background and asks for permission from parents or guardians for students to attend.

The flyers says the club is set to meet from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. once a month. Dates are provided up until May.

The district’s full statement can be read here:

The Moline-Coal Valley School District understands that there is concern and confusion over an upcoming after-school club at Jane Addams elementary.

The District would like to provide information on the situation. The Moline-Coal Valley School District and Board of Education have policies and administrative procedures in place which allow for community use of its publicly funded facilities outside the school day.

The district does not discriminate against any groups who wish to rent our facilities, including religious-affiliated groups. Religiously affiliated groups are among those allowed to rent our facilities for a fee.

The district has, in the past, approved these types of groups, one example being the Good News Club, which is an after-school child evangelism fellowship group. Flyers and promotional materials for these types of groups are approved for lobby posting or display only, and not for mass distribution.

Students or parents are then able to pick up the flyer from the lobby, if they so choose, which is aligned to District policy. Please note that the district must provide equal access to all groups and that students need parental permission to attend any after-school event. Our focus remains on student safety and student achievement.

 “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed, nor shall the kingdom be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever, “  Daniel 2

AMEN

  1. When I saw this clown on Tucker, he wasn’t very clear about the aims and goals of the club.
    In his position, I wouldn’t be either.

    Some claim that the perfectly rational concept of good vs. evil originated around 600 years before the common era. The idea is that if there is such a thing as “good” in the world, then there must also be such a thing as “evil.” Lucifer, also called Satan, is the personification of evil — and has been for a very long time. Human beings tend to personalize the spirit world. One may argue that Satan doesn’t actually exist, but it would be difficult to say that the world is free of evil — defined as profoundly immoral and wicked. The subject is exceedingly complex, so I wonder who that elementary student was (that 6-11-year-old child) who first stood up and said, “I want to start a Satan Club.” He must be an extraordinary child since most humans of that age group think that girls have cooties and boys’ stink.

    My guess is that no child ever stood up to make such a demand, but their parents probably did. And these parents, whatever their true beliefs, have decided that there is no room in public school for “religious clubs” of any kind. And, the best way to make that point is to demand equal access to public facilities for the antithesis of good (which is evil). Moreover, the most effective way of doing that is to employ, as a tool, innocent children — which, when you think about it, is how a rational person might define evil.

    All “clubs” in public schools must have a sponsor. In this case, who might that be? The answer to that question will help identify “who” is behind this effort. A Democrat, no doubt. A very far left one. But one does wonder, what are the children’s activities in the Satan Club? Do they perform Satanic rituals? Do they offer prayers to Lucifer? Do they cut off the heads of cats and drink their blood?

    Here’s a question: Who will be responsible and accountable should one of these ruddy-faced children later turn out to be another Jeffrey Dahmer?

    Two final questions: (1) If public schools allow religious (or anti-religious) clubs, does that mean that school officials must also allow for Wahhabist clubs (you know … equal access for all), as well? (2) What in hell are we doing to our children in the name of politics?

    A little more research. If you go to their website (https://thesatanictemple.com/), you find that it is possible to circumvent anti-Abortion legislation/law by participating in a “Satanic Abortion Ritual.” How that will play out in the courts is anyone’s guess but it appears that the Satanic Temple is on par with the Southern Poverty Law Center. Crumbs. How low can American society go?

    As Mustang suggests and I agree, it wasn’t the kids that came up with the idea, it was adults. So, what is their motivation? pedophilia, homo-pedo? They obviously want to steer/groom the kids in a direction. Or maybe it’s just donation money and grow the herd.

    Then maybe note who shows up at these things and keep some track of what they are up to.

    Tricky business this freedom stuff.

    I’m not so arrogant to think that I speak for the Almighty, but it has always been my understanding that far more people on earth will fail to achieve grace than salvation … which I assume is all part of Heaven’s population control mechanism. I think HE expects parents to teach their children “the basics;” I think HE knows that ultimately, we as individuals must find our way to HIM. No matter how good they are at teaching us the basics, our parents cannot guarantee us admission to paradise. Only WE can do that. That said, given all we know about teachers, about the leftist’s success in destroying our schools (and our children’s minds), why oh why would we ever want to relegate religious instruction to school? Do we really want our six-year-olds coming home from school to announce that Jesus was a girl in a man’s body?

    I think we all know it’s not the children who decided this club has to exist. How many kids know what a SATAN is, anyway?

    And yes, Satan exists; the excellent points about GOd /Christ being THE LIGHT in a DARK WORLD are throughout scripture…….Yes, Satan exists. Celebrating darkness is the sickness…the amazingly debauched thing most normal people would never countenance!

    What GOOD has Satan done? Can they give us a list?

    MUSTANG: What do you mean by “…far more people on earth will fail to achieve grace than salvation?”
    And you’re SO right; salvation is up to US…as a dear, wonderful Bible Teacher I was SO blessed to know let alone study under, Dotty, used to say “There are no grandchildren in heaven”….Nobody can help their grandkids have salvation!

    AS FOR TEACHING RELIGION IN SCHOOL….I tend to agree with you, MUSTANG…as we’ve said since 9/11, basically, this push to whitewash islam and get their clubs in our schools comes because how do our courts say “Oops…sorry…only Christianity and Judaism”..

    KID is right….he NAILED IT “TRICKY BUSINESS, THIS FREEDOM STUFF”

    But, remember…….Even I remember singing Christmas HYMNS (not Rudolph) at public schools….NOBODY MINDED!!!
    I have a Jewish friend who became a REALLY strong Christian…(REALLY STRONG…I hated that he stopped telling his fantastic dirty jokes :*() !!….I asked him once if he’d minded Christmas celebrations…
    I remember so well that he said “oh, sure, Z…I hate seeing rosey cheeked kids excited about Santa and hearing the beautiful Christmas music” In other words; HE DID NOT MIND.

    But, here we are….religions can meet in school….

    My point…SATANISM IS A RELIGION? And one might say that is not the point, but in everything I’ve read on this situation, it is compared to Christian RELIGIOUS training, so….

    BY THE WAY…good v evil started in The Garden!!

    MUSTANG: “How low can American society go?” Please don’t ask that again….I’m afraid I’m starting to see just HOW low we are …

    While. everyone makes good points above, the answer to only allowing God to be mentioned anywhere in our society is displayed everywhere, even “In God We Trust” on all our money, both bills and coins; the display of God’s 10 commandments in D.C., the Supreme Court, etc. No one is forced to believe in God. They are free to believe in anything they please, or even nothing at all. They just can’t deny our country was created with the belief in God. Folks are free to leave if they have a problem with this fact.

    “satanism is a religion?” And moslem vermin claim islam is 10% compatible with the Constitution.

    I think the main difference between the 1960’s and lately is that there were far fewer men willing to put up with shi ind of BS. Some guys are taken down a dark alley and they don’t talk about that evil in public no more. These days kids are being forced to accept it, some even embrace it.

    That is what the demoralization of society in the Communist active measures of attacking a society means. People who are demoralized can no longer tell right from wrong,acceptable from not.
    This started a long time ago. It will take people being abused beyond the point of their acceptance to the point they’d rather die trying.

    The problem for Obama and Satanists being that everything was founded by Christians with Christian teachings and that’s undeniable….that’s all who WAS here back in the day..Christian WHite men, like it or not!

    KID: Yes, and parents aren’t taking kids to church like ours did, and many very young teens don’t even understand there IS such a thing as MORALITY. Morality is something huge in the Bible and it’s escaped 2 generations of American kids…….
    We don’t have to be some weird Bible banger to understand what’s really GOOD for us and for our society… The word “:Sinful” is laughed at these days..”Who SAYS it’s SINFUL!?”

    The problem with you, Mustang, is
    1) You have a brain
    2) You know how to use it, and
    3) You excel in second stage thinking.

    They’d never let you back in the classroom. ALL great observations.

    So, TST is against tyrannical authority. Well, there goes your Democrat theory! 🙂 Their after school program targets schools with Good News clubs. What a shock. Satan following Christ around to sweep away seeds planted in His garden before they can take root. In fact, their campaigns on the link Mustang provided, cleverly play off traditional Christian social good efforts. Except they are missing the KEY ingredient – the power of Christ and his Holy Spirit – these groups do or did have. Masquerading as an angel of light. And definitely a religion.

    This is ILLINOIS, not California, note. I just heard John MacArthur say, “people have said to me ‘why don’t you get out of California?’ and I tell them ‘because this is where people need to be converted.'” True everywhere.

    Y’know, other than pulling a Prometheus and introducing knowledge and critical thinking to mankind, I’ve never really been able to see what exactly Satan did that was so bad.

    I mean, that business with the forbidden fruit was a Ralphie-Ovaltine-Decoder-Ring moment, and he DID disobey the Boss, but except for the business with Job and all, he didn’t do anything NEAR as bad as a lotta other people in the Bible who were s’posed to be good guys.

    Otherwise, tho, he’s merely a foil symbol for good-versus-evil . . . kinda like livin in Hawai’i and having 350 days of absolutely perfect weather — if not for the dozen or so days of storms, you’d never appreciate whatcha got there.

    But he deserves worship by little kids about as much as does Prometheus, or Loki, or even Shiva (worshipped widely in India). People have the right to believe in and/or worship whomever/whatever they like, but IMO we were a lot better off before God got kicked out of the classroom by “progressives” and Allah came to North America to demand special consideration on college campuses.

    I liked Murkan society better when families got up on Sunday morning, put on their best duds, went to church and sang with their neighbors, and came home to have a sit-down family meal without a boob tube blaring in their ears and offending their eyes with hi-speed pursuits, spectacular explosions, casualty statistics, and Karens.

    BOCOPRO…you believe Satan introduced critical thinking to mankind?
    Those ‘good guys’ in the Bible who did bad were human beings…you’re right, it’s hard to understand so many heroes of the bible being SO evil…….most repented, however…. Most Americans today actually believe that IF CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN, YOU BELIEVE YOU’VE MADE PERFECTION. When, in actuality, if you call yourself a Christian, you know how much you need God to help you, since you are NEVER EVER going to reach perfection on this earth…

    You have an unusual and interesting way of ‘interpreting’ the Bible. We COULD say Satan didn’t do anything bad per se, but the point is he’s in everything bad; it’s like abortion; that’s not mentioned by name in Scriptures, either…but it’s THERE.
    The “DARKNESS” mentioned SO much in Scriptures is absolutely believed to be EVIL/SATAN.

    I think we were far better off when God was in schools, too………it DID give kids a higher power other than themselves, or THEIR GOV’T. Today, it’s ALL about themselves.

    BAYSIDER…have met MacArthur and wish I was a fan…….I don’t see California any more needful of conversion than most states in our union. Yes, it IS “true everywhere”, so why even say it?

    THankfully, today, satanism is mocked and scoffed by most people….religion? technically….in popular parlance as a religion? of course not..absolutely not. Perhaps by its adherents.

    satanism is against everything that is good…….worshiping evil is not good. As defined, satanism seduces humans into sin or falsehood. Amen to that.

    I do not think that men are innately good or evil. I think men learn by doing, and in either instance, they excel at whichever they work hardest at. But while doing evil guarantees damnation, doing good does not guarantee salvation; because working hard to achieve good is a consequence of salvation rather than its price of admission. “Le plus grand tour que le diable ait jamais fait a été de convaincre le monde qu’il n’existait pas.” ~ Charles Baudelaire

    Nobody can be sure if men are innately good or evil….. I sometimes think, watching a sweet little newborn, that we’re innately good and learn how NOT to be from the humanness we acquire upon birth, and watching others…

    Doing evil only guarantees damnation if someone hasn’t repented….And yes, doing good absolutely does not guarantee salvation.
    The only price of admission, according to God is belief in Christ.

    @ “don’t see California any more needful of conversion” – the point was to not abandon your service because you think there are more pleasant places to be a Christian. I was moved and have been drinking that in all afternoon.

    Mustang + 1 again. Don’t like the scoffing. There’s power there. It’s dangerous to pretend otherwise. I firmly believe it’s religion. You are worshipping something. You are deciding what spiritual authority will guide you. Throughout history people have decided what their deity should be and given him attributes that express what they think, feel, and want to be reality. I don’t know how many of these folks “believe” in Satan. I’m sure many do and it is no joke. Whether they do or not, they hate God and elevate themselves, and Satan is the best representation of “anti-God” they know. So they call on his name. Worse, unlike many false gods, he has the power to answer, infill and empower them to do his will.
