How to stop distribution of Satanic literature in schools

satanic lit

We have now reached the utterly perverse point at which Gideons are not allowed to distribute the word of God on sidewalks off school property, while Satanists get to offer their benighted pamphlets on tables inside school buildings.

Things have gotten to such a sorry, confused, soggy, dangerous mess that Satanic literature is now being distributed in public schools.

The Delta County School district in Colorado felt compelled to allow Satanists to distribute their dark twisted activity books to middle schoolers. The Prince of Darkness has now been enthroned where the Son of God should sit.

We have now reached the utterly perverse point at which Gideons are not allowed to distribute the word of God on sidewalks off school property, while Satanists get to offer their benighted pamphlets on tables inside school buildings.

Said the district spokesman, rather lamely, “We’re trying to get the proper material out to kids.” So, parents, this school district believes that literature honoring the chief demon of hell is now “proper material” for your children.

There is only one way for this nonsense to be stopped and that is by a return to the Founders’ Constitution. Not the one mangled beyond all recognition by hyperactivist judges but the one given to us by James Madison, John Adams, George Washington and their peers.

The First Amendment protects the “free exercise” of “religion.” Everything hinges on what the Founders’ meant by the term “religion” If they meant “any supernatural system of belief,” then the Satanists have a point and we are doomed as a culture. But if by “religion” the Founders meant Christianity, then the equation changes dramatically.

Joseph Story, in his monumental Commentaries on the Constitution, described clearly what the Founders were intending to accomplish with the First Amendment. Story was the longest serving associate justice of his day, was appointed to the Court by the James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, and authored the famous Amistad opinion that freed the slaves who had been held captive on the ship of that name.

Story said this about the First Amendment:

The real object of the amendment was, not to countenance, much less to advance Mahometanism, or Judaism, or infidelity, by prostrating Christianity; but to exclude all rivalry among Christian sects, and to prevent any national ecclesiastical establishment, which should give to an hierarchy the exclusive patronage of the national government.

To countenance means to consider, to endorse, to sanction, or to promote. So Story says emphatically that with the First Amendment the Founders weren’t even considering let alone seeking to advance Islam, Judaism, atheism, Satanism, or any other supernatural belief system. No, the First Amendment was about protecting the free exercise of Christianity and Christianity alone.

So who gets to decide whether Lucifer’s literature gets handed to students in public schools? According to the Founders, the states get to decide, without any interference from the Supreme Court or anybody else.

Here’s Story:

“Thus, the whole power over the subject of religion is left exclusively to the state governments, to be acted upon according to their own sense of justice, and the state constitutions.”

In other words, if the state of Colorado doesn’t want to hand out the devil’s literature in its schools, it doesn’t have to. Nor does any other state in the Union.

Bottom line: if we want to keep hellish literature out of the hands of impressionable young students, all we have to do is get back to the Constitution the Founders gave us. Any takers?

    Do you actually know anything about satanism? Or do you just freak out over the name?

      43 Why do you not understand what I say? It is because you cannot bear to hear my word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. (John 8:43ff)

      24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. (Romans 1:24-25)

      Satan is the father of lies, and you have chosen to suppress the Truth of God and believe the lies of Satan.

      Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (Matthew 25:41)

      I Hope you enjoy “everlasting fire”, because that is where you are headed, unless you repent and turn to the Lord.

        No thanks. I’d rather not be a member of a cult who worships fairy tales.

    Did you ever read the stuff, or do you just jack off on the term ‘satanism’. Anyway, i guess, it’s not necessary for a believing Christian to read anything, including the bible, since you guys allready know anything. Why don’t you people just settle in a nice place, with a lot idiots alike, like let’s say Syria? There are a lot of other People, who know allready anything. Lol

    Umm… this may be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Religion means all and any RELIGION.

    By comparison you’re trying to make the argument that all vegetables means carrots because carrots are the only vegetable you approve of. And that’s stupid.

    If the Founding Fathers had meant “Christianity” where they wrote “religion”, they certainly would have written exactly that. They, however, did not, and to believe otherwise is delusional.

    If the Founding Fathers had meant to preference Christianity, then why did they include, in Article VI, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, “…; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

    It’s not like the Founding Fathers were unaware that other religions (and even *gasp* atheists) existed. By including that one little phrase, the Founding Fathers opened the possibility that someday, one of the members of Congress, the Supreme Court, or even the President of the United States could be a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, a pagan, an atheist, or even a Satanist. If the Founding Fathers had meant Christianity to ‘reign supreme’ or whatever, they would have said it, or at least left out the possibility for some other belief system to come to dominate the government.

    Unless, that is, you believe that the Founding Fathers were total and complete idiots who didn’t know that any other religions even existed. But, then, why would they include that phrase in that case? And really, while some of the Founding Fathers were Christian, many were Deists and some were atheists. Go to your library and get a copy of “The Jefferson Bible”. It’s about the size of a pamphlet. Thomas Jefferson thought that Jesus was great, but that people had embellished him so much that it obscured his message. So Jefferson removed any reference to Jesus’ divinity, the virgin birth, miracles, and so forth. He turned Jesus into a man. A wise man to be sure, but just a man. Nothing supernatural. Which is how Jefferson thought of Jesus. As just an ordinary man.

    I enjoy the comment above that tries to counter someone who clearly doesn’t believe a word the Bible says with Bible quotes. Absolutely genius there, my friend. But I digress, as my point in commenting is to debunk your, to put it kindly, pile of horseshit.

    First of all you clearly don’t understand Satanism or the literature you’re claiming is evil. The group publishing this material is The Satanic Temple (TST), which, if you do a bit of actually research, doesn’t believe and any supernatural beings, let alone God or Satan. What the do believe is that Satan serves as a symbol for knowledge and freedom of thought. (Note that Lucifer, in Latin, means Light Bringer, and that humanity would be completely ignorant if not for the Tree of Knowledge incident). You’ll also find that their first tenet is to show compassion an empathy towards all creatures with regards to reason. Remind me again how that’s evil, please.

    Following the line of thought that by religion they meant Christian sects, which let’s just pretend for the moment is the case, then Satanism is as Christian a sect as Catholicism.

    Same actors, God, Jesus, Satan. Same stage, Earth, Heaven, Hell. They’re just worshiping Satan instead.

    IE: just a different sect. So clearly defended as right under your notion that freedom of religion means freedom of Christian sect.

    So be quiet and leave all these lovely Christian sects alone. You’re all sinners right? Or are you suggesting you’re Christians without sin? Well Satanists are just a bit more nihilistic about the being accepted and saved by Christ’s love than you. Christ would still love them and forgive them right?

    Looks like the trolls found this article.
    Isn’t it funny, how atheists fee the need to come to Christian sites and bloviate, so as to make themselves feel superior. That comes from the reality that in the light of the creator God they are but dust.
