The New American: “The Devil went down to Georgia,” sang Charlie Daniels — now he has gone up to Colorado. But the matter isn’t a fiddling contest but fiddling while education burns, as some Centennial State schools plan to offer their students satanic and atheistic literature.
The materials are set to appear in the Delta County School District in Colorado April 1, but this is no joke. It’s the result of a policy, reports KJCT8 ABC, stating the district “cannot discriminate against any groups or organizations when it comes to non-curricular materials…. Kurt Clay, with the Delta School District[,] says if they are going to make literature for things such as Boy Scouts, 4H or other organizations available, they have to allow all types of information to be available to students.” So now, according to many, the Devil deserves equal access.
The group distributing the literature is the “Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers” (WCAF); its representatives say they were inspired to take action after Gideon Bibles were placed in the schools in December.
Opinion: Categorize this one under equal time for Satan: If there is a table with Bibles – there must be a table for Satan.
So I decided to take a look at some WCAF literature and found this picture on the cover of one of there brochures:
My that looks harmless “The Satanic Children’s Big Book of Activities,” don’t ya think?
The organization ultimately responsible for such propaganda is The Satanic Temple, a legitimate non-profit that includes “Satanists, secularists, and advocates for individual liberty” among their flock.
The group defines their mission statement:
“to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people. In addition, we embrace practical common sense and justice.
As an organized religion, we feel it is our function to actively provide outreach, to lead by example, and to participate in public affairs wheresoever the issues might benefit from rational, Satanic insights. As Satanists, we all should be guided by our consciences to undertake noble pursuits guided by our individual wills. We believe that this is the hope of all mankind and the highest aspiration of humanity.
It only takes 1 Bible verse to teach of the danger being inflicted on the Middle School minds of Colorado:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” 1 Peter 5:8
Satan has an open door in Colorado.
