That's right folks. The Satanic Temple has decided to spread their message in public elementary after-school programs.
"We are sure that the school districts we've approached are well aware that they are not at liberty to deny us use of their facilities," Satanist Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said.
In a statement on their website, the satanists maintain they're entitled to the same accommodations as the 'Good News Club', a Christian organization.
Self-described as "an atheistic religious organization that uses the symbol of Satan to inspire civil justice", the Satanic Temple hopes to counter the Christian groups operating after-school activities in public schools.
'After School Satan' aims to mimic the 'Good News Club', but with a very "different focus."
"It's important that children be given an opportunity to realize that the evangelical materials now 'creeping' into their schools are representative of but one religious opinion amongst many," Greaves said.
An example of 'After School Satan' materials? The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities featuring cartoon kids wearing goat head and pentagram tee-shirts.
'After School Satan' will make it's first appearance at Vista Elementary School in Taylorsville, Utah.
According to Granite School District spokesperson Ben Horsley, "Any organization can rent our facilities after school hours as long as they pay the fee and aren't doing anything illegal."
'After School Satan' has no plans to stop in Utah. They select schools near existing Satanic Temples.
The problem? Satanic Temples exist pretty much everywhere.
A wise man once said: "The evil day of Ephesians 6:13 is taken by some to refer to the end times when the Evil One will launch a ferocious campaign against Christ and His followers. Our real battle is not with human cultists, false religionists, atheists, or pseudo-Christians, but with the demonic being working in them." -- Richard Patterson, Ph.D
