The modern liberal movement embodies an atheist worldview, as does the communist movement.
Incidentally, true Satanism is not “Satanism” at all, but worship of the self and the religious seeking of power and dominance – thereby becoming the “adversary” which is the essential nature of Satan.
These connections explain the leftist obsession with the self and with “one’s own truth.” Furthermore, it is not an accident that the high holiday of the communist movement is the same as that of the Satanic tradition, May the 1st. In the Satanic tradition, the day is known as Beltane, Walpurgis Day, and May Day. In Communism and certain pagan traditions, it is simply May Day.
It helps to understand the connection and distinction between worshiping a fallen angel and worshiping the self if we are to understand how our culture is able to justify bringing Satanism to the forefront. They do this by insisting that it is one red herring or another when convenient. Worshiping a fallen angel passes in some circles as mere superstition. Worshiping the self passes in most circles as it is so common in the modern world.
This is how statues of Moloch surrounded by supplicating children can be erected in courthouses and in public spaces- through one excuse or the other, and finally with the deeply enshrined American value of religious freedom. So, it is an admixture of atheism and constitutionality that opens the door to these things.
Now, on to the latest affront to our nation’s children.
A school district in Illinois has come under fire from parents for allowing an after-school program put on offer by The Satanic Temple to pay rent and use the facility after school hours. Founded in 2012 by Lucian Greaves, the TST claims to be a non-theistic human rights group. They claim to engage in activism, protest, and lobbying and have their headquarters in Salem Massachusetts.
Their claim of being promoters of human rights is directly connected to the Satanic principle of self-worship. Their claim of being non-theistic is accurate insofar as they do not worship Satan as a god, but see him as an archetype of the cosmic rebel. This is why people like Saul Alinsky and Hillary Clinton have gone out of their ways to tip their hats to infernal iconography.
Not surprisingly, Greaves has defended the after-school program saying, “This isn’t a club meant to proselytize Satanism or engage in discussions about religious opinion. It is an educational program meant to focus on critical thinking and basic education skills.”
This is like saying that your local gang is going to teach your children self-defense skills. If you let your children spend time with gangsters, you are allowing them to be turned into criminals. Likewise, if you let your children spend time with Satanists, you can expect them to become self-obsessed, power-seeking, sociopaths.
If you haven’t seen a better argument for homeschooling than this, we’d like to hear it.
The Moline-Coal Valley Schools superintendent, Dr. Rachel Savage, claims that the schools and its teachers are not involved in the club. Flyers were posted in the school lobby and parents are required to sign a permission slip before children can attend. Imagine the mind of a parent who would sign such a permission slip.
Savage says the Board of Education allows its facilities to be used for community purposes. She continues, saying, “To deny their organization to pay to rent our publicly-funded institution, after school hours, subjects the district to a discrimination lawsuit, which we will not win, likely taking thousands upon thousands of tax-payer dollars away from our teachers, staff, and classrooms.”
This statement is, at best, an example of the type of cowardice that makes it easy for evil to wend its way into a culture. At worst, it is the same kind of doublespeak that the worshipers of the self use to excuse the teaching and practice of political dominance.
It’s time we faced the fact that we have become a culture that accepts evil. With this knowledge comes the conviction that subjecting our children to public schools is irresponsible, at best. At worst, we are placing the tutelage of our children in the hands who believe evil itself has constitutional rights.
