It causes me to feel cold when any organization or group seeks to target children in schools with indoctrination and propaganda. In my view the Satanic Temple has moved a step too far by bringing religion and politics into the classroom with their latest campaign the Protect the Children Project.
In the USA the boundaries between religion and secularism in the public education system is becoming confused, not helped by the Satanic Temple pushing their brand of Satanism into schools. Children need protecting from overzealous salespeople of any religion or politics, to learn and make up their own minds free from blatant brainwashing. It is getting harder each day working out what the Satanic Temple is evolving into: a political group trying to push politics onto school kids?; a religious cult trying to indoctrinate children into a religion?; a group launching another satirical campaign using children as the butt of their joke? I do not know, but I dislike where this is leading.
The publication the Satanic Temple wants to make available into schools makes Satanism look retarded. In the age of internet technology no kid is going to be interested in a puzzle book. The Satanic Temple educates school children with fantasy and stereotypes. No teacher is going to allow or be seen to support Satanic rituals in their classroom. Few Satanists go about in public wearing Satanic t-shirts or regalia beyond heavy metal music branding. The images of a Satanist with goofy teeth, nerdy glasses and so fat that their belly button hangs out of their t-shirt is hardly an attractive image of a typical Satanist.
Fortunately even most Satanists will view the efforts of the Satanic Temple to brainwash children with their naive and clownish version of Satanism is unwelcome and will be opposed.
