RE: After School Satan atheist club
Dear Principal Boyd: way brief introduction, Liberty Counsel international non-profit legal,
media and policy organization with emphasis First Amendment liberties. Liberty
Counsel provides pro bono representation charge for individuals, organizations, and
government entities, including school districts. have had great success behalf our
clients federal and state court, and are pleased count among our clients Child
Evangelism Fellowship CEF and the after-school Good News Club GNC which CEF
sponsors. represent CEF nationwide and have never lost legal case involving the CEF
Good News Clubs. writing because the anti-religious atheist group calling itself The Satanic
Temple TST has recently sought headlines again promoting its own parody afterschool club entitled the After School Satan Club ASSC TST has listed your school
district target its media campaign, reaching out you provide accurate
information about this group, along with offer free, pro bono representation, should
your school district take action accordance with Liberty Counsel advice.
Beyond the inclusion the name Satan the names the group and its club,
TST atheist nature, and does not actually believe actual devil Satan. The group
merely uses Satan create the most controversy offense possible, primarily directed
toward adherents the three major monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity and
Islam.
TST especially hates Christianity, and seeks force permissible expressions
Christian belief from the public sphere, through various publicity stunts and antics. the

past, for instance, TST has presented state and local governments with the false choice
either accepting statue Satan alongside Ten Commandments monument,
removing the monument itself, despite the fact that courts have upheld Ten
Commandments monuments being completely legal government property. See Van
Orden Perry, 545 U.S. 677 (2005). Now, TST seeking intimidate school districts with
another false choice, either allowing After School Satan club, eliminating other
privately-sponsored after school clubs, especially the Good News Club.
Contrary TST claims, the Good News Club simply nurturing, welcoming,
privately-sponsored after-school enrichment club offering training morals, character,
leadership and citizenship from Biblical perspective, through fun activities, projects,
stories, songs and games. Its sponsor, Child Evangelism Fellowship, welcomes all children,
regardless religious belief, and they may only attend with parental permission.
Attendance free, and donations are solicited. CEF partners with local church near
the school which the GNC held, provide mentoring and positive character
development the children that elementary. Numerous principals around the country
have provided CEF positive feedback their experience with the club. addition its hatred Christianity general, TST hates the Good News Club
particular. Indeed, the sole reason for TST After School Satan club its disagreement
with the Good News Club character instruction, which undergirded traditional
mainstream Christian beliefs and viewpoint. TST hatred God and Christianity (and the
Good News Club) visceral: schools with Good News Clubs (which teach students have
love, joy, peace, kindness, respect for parents and school authorities) are burdened with
the loathsome stink the Good News Clubs (Bold emphasis added). Hyperbole and
mischaracterization traditional Christian beliefs the norm for the TST; its parallel
universe, trained, caring volunteer Good News Club leaders are odious, mindless
indoctrination gangs who assault students. (Emphasis added).
The parody nature its atheistic campaign self-evident. TST has even copied
90% the standard Good News Club permission slip, and TST video advertisement
its club not the advertisement organization that actually trying persuade
parents enroll their children legitimate after-school club. Demonic voices, chants
playing backwards, screeching music, and rearing male goats not intended attract
children parents, but intended play the Satan angle, attempt cause
school districts ban legitimate after-school clubs, effort keep out Satan, and
alarm parents. TST simply engaged targeted, hateful campaign, seeking its real goal banning Good News Clubs trying offensive possible.
Banning all non-school clubs, Good News Club permission slips, however, not
required order protect children from hateful groups like the TST its after school
club. School districts may simply require parental permission for any student
participation all privately-sponsored clubs, and trust the good judgment parents. schools so, the After School Satan club will soon fizzle for lack attendance and

participation, just like this club Centennial Elementary the Mount Vernon School
District, which cancelled its facilities request,2 the previous atheist attempt competing
with and shutting down the Good News Club (the Better News Club3 Young Skeptics
club), which maligned the Christian beliefs the Good News Club one New York
elementary school. This club met exactly one time last year, with children from only one
family, which, due language barriers, did not understand the nature the club. soon the parents found out, they withdrew their children.
The similarity rhetoric between atheists the former and current instances
striking. The Young Skeptics club goal provide children with alternative, and
scientifically based, view the natural world around them based scientific discovery
and evidence-based decision-making, while the After School Satan club likewise
emphasizes scientific, rationalist, non-superstitious world view.
Whether club openly atheist nature, simply atheist Satan garb,
school districts should simply require signed parental permission for all clubs, and
parents should simply withhold their permission for their children participate with
such unsavory groups. schools and parents so, After School Satan will remain only website and editorial Kathryn Stewart the Washington Post, and will have
impact children.
Should your school the Tacoma Public Schools challenged for requiring all
clubs obtain parental permission, Liberty Counsel stands ready provide pro bono
defense your school district charge the taxpayers. Should you have any
questions about any the points contained this letter, Liberty Counsel experience
these matters, please don hesitate contact 407-875-1776.

How did get here?
Tacoma Public Schools received email late the afternoon Oct. from the Satanic Temple Seattle.
The Temple asked for information about how apply for afterschool facility use for Point Defiance.
Superintendent Santorno notified the temple email Oct. what the application process entails.
The Tacoma Public School Board following the law and has approved the use space request.
The Temple has applied for and been granted permission use one room, once per month for total
seven times between December and the end the school year.
Parents Point Defiance students received electronic fliers about the program with instructions
how register their children for they choose. ruling the U.S. Supreme Court clear: Tacoma Public Schools cannot prevent organization from
using available space our school based their religious beliefs. assure you district leaders nor any Point Defiance Elementary School staff recruited this organization endorse its presence the school.
