+++READ FULL STORY HERE
Today, I sat inside of Point Defiance Elementary School with students, parents, concerned citizens, and representatives of The Satanic Temple to talk about the Satanists’ new after-school program, “After School Satan.” Sure, the fun may have been outside; complete with bagpipes,
carted-in concern, and enough microwave trucks to instantly cook a very
sad Holiday meal, but I’m content to watch that online.
The fact is that Tacoma was one of the first cities announced by The
Satanic Temple and now we need to see the wholesale spectacle become a
retail educational program. So rather than stay with the media circus, I
went into the meeting itself. Media wasn’t allowed, but I thought I had
good reason to go even if I counted as ‘Media’: I’m a Tacoman and thus
have a tax-payer angle, I’m a local community activist nominally allied
with the Satanists, and Becky– a highly regarded educator– wanted to
make sure the program was on sound pedagogical footing.
If I had to describe the overall feel of the room while the event was
going on, I’d describe it as a convergence zone of cognitive
dissonance. The Satanic Temple contingent had to keep the obvious
political posturing at bay while spinning this up as a positive
educational experience. The parents had to balance their concerns about
the future of secular education with their fears of their children being
targeted by the ideologically blinded. The Christians had to balance
their war with the Adversary against their growing knowledge that there
were no actual adversaries in the room. Becky and I were continually
divided between our desires to passively observe or to dive in and help
where we could. Everyone was cordial, open, communicative, and
continually terrified that something might go wrong at any moment. The
counter tops were low, everything was labeled with marker, and it was
one of the most understatedly intense rooms I’ve been in for some time.
But enough about the emotional landscape, let’s get to the details. The educators provided by The Satanic Temple were Lilith Starr,
head of the local chapter, Vapula Lix and Violet Black, who were
assisting, and Erin Botello, who appeared to be the main educational
resource for Tacoma’s After School Satan implementation. There was no
lack of documentation: they had the usual Satanic Temple pamphlets and
statements of belief, their coloring books, and an eyes-only copy of
their working curriculum.
