Schools in Alaska and around the nation are already dealing with sexually explicit library books, transgender athletic controversies, parental rights violations and large numbers of failing students. Now, The Satanic Temple is opening afterschool clubs in the Lower-48.

On May 2, a federal judge ordered a Pennsylvania school district to allow an “After School Satan Club.”

The U.S. District Court for Easter Pennsylvania cited the First Amendment in deciding that the Saucon Valley School District could not bar The Satanic Temple from holding student meetings on school property. The court claimed the government must strive to “forward expression rather than quash it.” This is especially true with “controversial or inconvenient” speech, it added.

Judge John Gallagher added: “Indeed, it is the First Amendment that enumerates our freedoms to practice religion and express our viewpoints on religion and all the topics we consider sacred.”

Satan clubs, however, are far more intent about attacking Christianity than they are about promoting allegiance to Satan. The brainchild of The Satanic Temple, several of these clubs have launched around the country in recent months with the stated goals of attacking Christian faith and promoting the idea that God does not exist. According to the Bible, however, Satan is a murderer and liar who “prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

While there are no school Satan clubs in Alaska, the Satanic Temple has already made a mark in the state.

Nationally, The Satanic Temple is notorious for demanding to “pray” during borough, city and school board meetings if the gatherings also allow for Christian prayers. One of the group’s representatives did this during several Kenai Borough meetings over the past few years.

In 2021, the an ACLU lawsuit challenged the Kenai Borough for limiting public assembly prayers to officially recognized religious organizations. The Alaska Supreme Court decided against the borough. Since then, prayers that end with, “Hail Satan,” are periodically heard in the assembly chambers, most recently in December of 2022.

Nationally, The Satanic Temple also runs an online telehealth abortion clinic and firmly aligns itself with the LGBTQ political and cultural agenda.

    We have the freedom of choice.. even to make the wrong decisions.. and continue in them.
    That is true freedom, we were created with this freedom/autonomy, and our creator gave us this freedom…. even to Not choose Him.
    Don’t get me wrong, there will be Hell to pay, and those who stand on the truth will prevail. Even to die, is gain.
    Stand for something or fall for anything.
    God Bless America =]

    Mr. D,
    What a perfect example the meeting after school SATAN CLUB is of the ongoing battle of GOOD vs EVIL❗️Your covering the story in Palmer, or affectionately, our ‘backyard’ is indeed courageous & tantamount to exposing the truth of what’s happening in & to our society. You’ve shown the inextinguishable pure white light of the Almighty’s righteousness on the corruption of our children happening right before our eyes❗️
    Thank you❗️

    If your children or grand children are in public schools then you as the parent are to blame

    They cannot claim the rights of a religious organization if they are atheistic. They claim not to believe in any deity and mock religion therefore they are not a religion. They are a political indoctrination group and a domestic enemy of these United States. Any efforts by them to infiltrate Alaskan society must be crushed. I’m not advocating violence, just that they are made extremely uncomfortable to exist in the public square.

      Why do you care? They have a differing, nonviolent world view. Don’t worry about a provocatively named group. I’m a lot more worried about our christian nationalist racist domestic terrorist groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. They have proven themselves to be violent against police, lawmakers and the constitution itself.

  • George says:

    If they appear after school in ANC, Christians (& others) should show up en masse & turn it into a Christian meeting.
    After all Satan is from our bible ….. no bible, no Satan. So lets support the Satanists ….. let’s point out who Satan is.
    Bring your Bibles …… join their club.

    Friend. Nobody is sacrificing children

    From the 45 goals of the Communist Party (1963):
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
