Portland says NO to After-School Satan Club

Oct 20, 2016 / Written by: America Needs Fatima

At noon on the October 19, concerned parents and local residents took a public stand in the form of a rosary rally against the opening of an After School Satan Club at the Sacramento Elementary School in Portland Oregon.

On the sidewalk in front of the school, over 120 people prayed and asked God and the Blessed Mother to stop Satanism from entering our schools and from tarnishing the innocence of our children.

The demonstration and prayer vigil was organized by rosary rally captains and members of America Needs Fatima. Three Roman Catholic priests were present as well as the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus. There was also a strong presence of the Catholic Vietnamese Community.

A few days before October 19, the date set for an open house for the elementary school to introduce the After School Satan Club to children and parents, we learned that the Satanic Temple had decided to postpone the event due to a change in the school schedule. As a result, the open house for the After School Satan Club at the Sacramento Elementary School was rescheduled for November.

According to a press release from Portland on November 7, the first meeting of the After School Satan Club was scheduled for November 16 at 11:45am.

The already mentioned school is one of the nine schools nationwide at which the Satanic Temple is trying to open Satan clubs.

Thankfully, there is a growing wave of opposition to these clubs. There is strong push back. The rally and prayer vigil in front of the Sacramento Elementary School is a good example of this push back.

As the Psalms exclaim:

"You that love the Lord, hate evil.." Psalm 96:10

To love God is to hate Satan.

We must not allow Satan an entrance into our schools.
