You know, there was a time when I was all for The Satanic Temple. The statue of Satan at Oklahoma was a wonderfully innovative piece of Satanic counter-Christian activism against the intercourse of religion and government, and the rewards they offered for those who donated. Even their general trolling of the system and exploiting the holes of laws done in the name of “religious freedom” had a lot of potential (fighting the delay between a woman and her right to an abortion for instance). But then they release this:
Now to be fair, this is something that started late last year, but I feel my opinion on this should be stated: what are The Satanic Temple thinking? It’s a transparent attempt to beat the Christians at their own game. They know Christians have been spreading Bibles in schools, so they seek to spread Satanic coloring books to schools for children. Why is this a problem? Because that’s not how you fight the indoctrination of children. You can’t oppose one group of people pushing a religion or belief system on children by encouraging children to give a crap about another belief system.
Some might make the argument that public schools brainwash children no matter what, to which I say: shouldn’t the parents be teaching the children to think for themselves?
