An After-School Satan Club, which was started by the Satanic Temple in response to a Christian after-school program called Good News Clubs, isn’t fairing well. The atheist group behind the Satan Clubs approached nine school districts in 2016 that already had Good News Clubs to set up the programs. The After-School Satan Club in Tacoma, Wash., was set up in 2016, but since the club only brought one student, it has been shut down.
In contrast, the Good News Clubs are going strong. Says Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, “[T]he Good News Clubs teach morals, character development, patriotism, and respect from a Christian viewpoint. Public schools welcome these clubs because they improve the behavior of the students and the Supreme Court has sided with these clubs.”
