When I moved to Florida, I was surprised to learn that some schools had after school Bible programs here, basically Pizza parties, in elementary schools.
I didn’t think much of it: I figured it’s just a regional thing.
Anyway, some people don’t like it – they see it as violation of separation of church/state – which it might be: I dunno. I don’t get too involved with this stuff.
But among those who are trying the prove their point in a more dramatic way, enter the Church of Satan. They’ve successfully petitioned to allow after school programs based upon the same laws that have allowed evangelical pizza parties.
Their intro video is, of course, creepy and over the top, looking like a bad 1970s era horror flick made by college students.
They’re doing it to prove a point. What do I think? I dunno. I don’t like schools existing in the first place. But I share this because it’s something to share.
Indeed. Church of Satan did this in response to the following.
Strangely enough, I don’t have any real problem with it either. It’s weird to me: my state (NJ) was a mostly secular state, at least the area I came from, so something like After School Bible Pizza would be strange to me. But here in Florida, it’s common.
And honestly, I prefer this stuff to be handled on a state-by-state basis, with whatever reasonable restrictions are in place from the federal level.
The marvel of the States being United (it is, after all, like 50 little countries in many ways) – is that we have unfettered freedom of movement amongst them.
If I *didn’t* like the way my state or local level was handling things: I can fight it or move. Not always practical of course, but possible. No passports required.
