The Satanic Temple said this month that it is launching an “After School Satan Club” (ASSC) at a Connecticut elementary school, months after a federal judge ruled that a middle school in Pennsylvania had to accommodate a similar club.
The Satanic Temple is a political activist group that protests religious symbolism in public spaces. In spite of its name, according to its website it denies the existence of both God and Satan.
The group launched its “After School Satan” program in 2016; the organization touts the initiative as an alternative to religious after-school programs.
The organization said on its Instagram account last week that the program “is coming to Connecticut!”
