Around noontime on Wednesday, November 16, the first “After School Satan Club” in the history of America opened at the Sacramento Elementary School in Portland, Oregon.
The school is a public tax funded institution destined to educate children. The same school is one of ten currently being targeted by the Satanic Temple to open Satan clubs.
Parents from the said school have expressed anxiety and complained about the opening of the “After School Satan Club.”
Jose Delgado, whose 8 yr. old daughter goes to Sacramento Elementary School, voiced his complaint:
“There is nothing positive about a Satanic Club. Satan is Satan. I’m upset because we didn’t even have a say in this. All of a sudden we’re going to have this club.” 1
Thankfully, many Americans are opposing these clubs. The campaigns Return to Order together with TFP Student Action and America Needs Fatima have collected more than 90,000 signatures to oppose the clubs. The anti-Satan club petition signatures were personally hand delivered to Sacramento Elementary School’s principal and district officials.
Eighty parents and local residents participated in a rosary rally against the Satan clubs, organized by supporters of America Needs Fatima. A Roman Catholic priest led the prayers. The Catholic Vietnamese community joined in with enthusiasm.
On the other side of the street from the rally were ten darkly dressed Satanists. They carried a black and white flag of America and counter protest signs. A few people yelled profanities and curses at the rosary rally group while prayers were being said.
Various media sources such as CBN News, ABC news, Christian Newswire, KOIN6 News, Christian Today, Charisma News, Fox News, US FLASH, WDTN News, local news The Oregonian, Crossroads today, and UPI News had reports and carried live coverage of the rosary rally.
Some of the signs at the rally read:
Satanism is NOT an American Value
Satan is Evil—Evil has NO rights
Keep it “One Nation Under God”
These thoughts reflect what most Americans think.
As Satan wages a battle for the souls of America’s children, we must not lose confidence in God and always remember that the final victory is His.
But there’s more. For God to bless our country, we must not let Satan into our institutions. As Saint Joan of Arc said: “For God to be on our side, we must first be on His side.”
Everyone who loves God hates the devil (Ps. 96:10). All God-fearing people are invited to sign the petition to keep Satan out of schools. This is the least we can do.
