(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last Friday, a group of about fifty people held a prayer rally outside of Joyner Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina to protest a planned after-school Satan Club.
Tempe Moore, the organizer of the event, said the people of Greensboro don’t want a Satan club permitted to use the school or any of the schools in Guilford county.
But area residents weren’t entirely pleased over having dozens of protesters with signs turning up on their street. Can you blame them?
The whole drama began after flyers promoting the new Satan club went out to students in late April. The first meeting of the group was scheduled to begin on Friday at Joyner Elementary School which is why the protesters turned up.
However, the chief of staff from Guilford County Schools said the club is under review.
Lucien Greave, the co-founder of the Satanic Temple said the Satan club wasn’t started to endorse Satanism or criticize other religions. Instead, the Satanic Temple uses the clubs to focus on critical thinking and scientific rationalism. Greave said the Satanists never start a club where they don’t have enough supporters or followers to attend.

Currently, there are four after-school Satan clubs in the United States, including ones in Ohio and Illinois. A group is suing a Pennsylvania school district after it refused to permit a Satan club in an elementary school.
Guilford County Schools informed parents that the district is not associated with any after-school program. The district will be reviewing with its legal counsel how fliers for non-school-sponsored clubs are distributed.
