The Satanic Temple sponsors After School club in Chesapeake,Va

School board granted them the right to hold their club on school grounds, after classes. The meeting was disrupted by a bomb threat phoned in ( presumably by a theist ) the club promotes science, critical thinking skills and social equality. They do not worship Satan, and in fact say he isn’t real. Several Christians however want the school to withdraw the agreement despite the fact it is completely legal .[media=https://youtu.be/8Z2d538UB08]

Something unusual going on. If the Satanic Club, does not believe in Satan, why do they call themselves that?

Their messaging is confusing and so parents will be confused and need to be wary of what is being communicated to their children.

What part do you find dishonest ? The club real or not can’t teach any religion in class. They don’t hold black mass. As I said, it’s no doubt a test case, they’re playing by the rules. The Christians are the ones making threats. Are you going to deny the hypocrisy ?
@Zeusdelight They do believe in atheistic satanism. A belief system that does not follow a supernatural being.

@PrincessOfHell The OP, Doc Savage, might be able to clarify that. I don't know this group enough to comment.
There's gotta be a problem here -. They probably know there's no Satan...

They’re not pro Satan, as far as I know. But they do like to oppose what some consider “god’s word” Doing it in Satan’s name, gives them a legitimate religious title.

Can't force everyone into superstitious nonsense.
