Another Conservative Xtian Ooops
Oh, what a hoot! I'm sure this isn't at all what conservative christian extremists in Florida's Orange County school district had in mind when they pushed to have christian religious materials be allowed to be distributed to students but to have banned materials from other religious and non-religious groups, which after a lawsuit ended with them agreeing to allow all religious materials.

Now the Satanic Temple is exercising their right to religious freedom and will be taking their materials to the students too. Thanks to the Xtian extremists the satanic group will now be able to make widely available their 'The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities' to the students in that district.

The activity book asks kids to find ways to be inclusive in order to solve problem. For instance, one set of instructions in the book says, “These bullies are mad and afraid of things they don’t understand. Help Damian use inclusive language to defuse the situation.” In addition to the activity book other materials will include “pamphlets related to the Temple’s tenets, philosophy and practice of Satanism, as well as information about the legal right to practice Satanism in school.”

According to Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves,

All of the children in these Florida schools are already aware of the Christian religion and it’s Bible, and this might be the first exposure these children have to the actual practice of Satanism. We think many students will be very curious to see what we offer.

Greaves made a point to note, however, that the kids wouldn’t be exposed to Satanic Temple reading material had the school board not allowed Christians to distribute bibles and religious pamphlets in the first place.

If a public school board is going to allow religious pamphlets and full Bibles to be distributed to students — as is the case in Orange County, Florida — we think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions, as opposed to standing idly by while one religious voice dominates the discourse and delivers propaganda to youth.

Get the popcorn ready and sit back for the riot, I mean, fireworks show, folks.
