Should Satanic Books Be Handed Out In Schools? [VIDEO, POLL]
The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities is not only real, but it might be coming to certain schools in America really soon... whether you like it not.
This all came about late last year in Florida after a Christian group handed out Bibles at a local Orange County school. An excerpt from the official Satanic Temple website reads:
"In response to a recent School Board decision in Orange County, Florida that allows for the dissemination of religious materials in public schools, The Satanic Temple will be distributing educational religious material to students.
This effort came about when the Orange County school system allowed an evangelical Christian group to distribute Bibles while censoring atheist materials distributed by the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), a nonprofit that strives to uphold the principle of separation of state and church. In response, FFRF sued the Orange County School Board. Neither FFRF nor The Satanic Temple agree with the school board’s decision to allow the distribution of religious materials in schools; however, The Satanic Temple seeks to ensure that pluralism is respected whenever the Church/State division is breached.
