PA School District Revokes Approval For After School Satan Club Following ‘Chaos’ Of Public Outcry | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A Pennsylvania school district just revoked their previous approval for an After School Satan Club to use their facilities following extensive public backlash.

    The extracurricular club, which was being promoted for children ages 5 through 12, had originally been granted approval to meet in public school buildings in the Saucon Valley School District. This small suburban community is located about 60 miles north of Philadelphia in Northampton County, just outside Allentown.

    Saucon Valley school superintendent Jaime Vlasaty announced one Friday night that she was rescinding approval for the club to use school facilities, saying the club had failed to meet the requirements to use district facilities.

    Vlasaty also mentioned an anonymous voicemail which included threatening language and forced district campuses and after-school activities to shut down last Tuesday evening and all day Wednesday, per local news source Lehigh Valley Live.

    "As a result of this violation, the educational programming and activities of the District has been significantly impacted and it has caused unequivocal disruption to the District's daily operations," Vlasaty said. "Our community has experienced chaos. Our students, staff and teachers have had to endure a threat to their safety and welfare. The gravity of feelings of instability, anxiety and fear have been profound."

    The school superintendent asked the community to calm down their "hateful" language in the wake of the controversy.

    "Aside from my decision to rescind approval, I implore the Saucon Valley community to eliminate threatening, hateful and divisive language and behavior, and make a commitment in supporting our students and reinforcing the values of our community," she said.

    Vlasary continued: "I firmly believe that we can create a safe and inclusive environment within our District where everyone is respected and valued no matter their opinions and beliefs, but we must first model this within our homes, our community and with one another."

    The district's decision to allow the After School Satan Club to use the middle school was shared with parents last Monday and quickly inspired heated debate from both sides. District representatives argued that the club was not affiliated with the school and should therefore be allowed to use the facilities.

    Parents quickly rallied, organizing a prayer service to be held outside the district Middle School on March 8, the day of the club's first meeting.

    "It's by no means a protest," organizer Marjulee Colon, a former Republican candidate for Lehigh County's District 4 commissioner seat, told The Morning Call. "My goal is to have the opportunity to really flood that area with the presence of our God, who is love and grace and mercy."

    The parent who initially requested that the Satanic Temple should create the club in the Saucon Valley school district said they understood the backlash because they feel the same way about Christians.

    "I can sympathize with it because I'm turned off by their religion," the parent, who insisted on remaining anonymous, said. "I know what it's like to be in their shoes."

    June Everett, national campaign director of the After School Satan Club, told The Morning Call that The Satanic Temple promotes freedom, science, justice and compassion and doesn't promote worshiping the devil.

    "We are disappointed and are considering our options," Everett said in a statement after the club's approval was revoked.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.
