A disturbing trend is occurring in America.
An Illinois school released a flyer advertising an “After School Satan Club.”
The program is for children in grades one through five, and is sponsored by the Satanic Temple.
The flyer has a picture of a cartoon version of a devil, and reads: “Hey kids, let’s have fun at After School Satan Club!”
The flyer then promises science projects, puzzles, games, and art projects.
Tucker Carlson spoke to the co-founder of the Satanic temple about this disturbing club:

The Washington Examiner has more details on the “Satan Club:”
An Illinois school district is defending an elementary school offering “After School Satan Club,” an extracurricular educational program sponsored by the Satanic Temple of the United States.
The program, for children in grades first through fifth, will be taught by volunteers at The Jane Addams Elementary School in Moline, and will meet five times this year beginning Thursday, flyers circulating on social media claim.
According to the flyer, the club will consist of science projects, puzzles, games, arts and crafts and outdoor nature activities. The club says it will help children learn benevolence and empathy, critical thinking, problem solving, creative expression and personal sovereignty.
The Satanic Temple – essentially an activist group and think tank more than a religious institution – said the program is available at select public schools where Good News programs exist, and is meant to be educationally enriching. Members have no intention of converting children to Satanism.

The Moline-Coal Valley School District in Illinois defended its decision to allow an “After School Satan Club” for children in grades one through five. https://t.co/Faqu93SEBk

The school has defended its position for supporting the club, claiming not to discriminate against any groups.
Our friends at Breitbart shared more details on the school district defending the club:
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.
