A school in Portland, Oregon, has granted approval to a local Satanic Temple’s request to set up an after-school programme for pupils.  Children at Sacramento Elementary school which educates people between the age 5-10 will now have the opportunity to attend the Satanic club’s inaugural meeting on October 19.

Satanic Temple spokesman Finn Rezz said that the club would focus on “on science and rational thinking,” promoting “benevolence and empathy for everybody” – while providing an alternative voice to the Bible-centred “Good News Club”.

On its After School Satan Club website, the Satanic Temple says it has been starting after school clubs to provide an alternative to evangelical Christian organizations that offer similar programmes in many schools across the US.

Paul Erlebach, Superintendent of the Neah-Kah-Nie School District, issued a statement at the time saying: “The NKN School District recognizes that questions of religious belief and discussion of religious organizations can create strong feelings, and it is important to note that our district does not promote any particular religion.”
