‘After School Satan Club’ Rejected from PA Elementary School, Threatens ‘Costly Litigation’

Published

The battle to protect elementary school children wages on. An attempt to create an after school program based around Satan received pushback from a Northern York County School District in Pennsylvania this week.

On Tuesday, the school district voted 8-1 to reject the “After School Satan Club.” The club was proposed by one parent, Samantha Groome, for Northern Elementary School in Dillsburg. Sadly, this is not just one delusional parent’s crazy idea.

The nationwide After School Satan Club program is actually run by the Satanic Temple at “select public schools” throughout the country. The group tries to follow where Good News Cubs, an after-school program based on the gospel of Jesus Christ, “also operate” reports The Washington Examiner.

Lucien Greaves, the co-founder of the Satanic Temple, says that although the club was rejected in Pennsylvania, he will be taking legal action if the club is denied the usage of a public facility. “It’ll have to move into litigation, costly litigation that the community is going to have to pay for” Greaves said about the school board’s vote.

The satanic club can be found in Ohio, Indiana, Utah and Illinois. According to the organization’s website, children in the club are provided with “activities and learning opportunities” under a self-directed education plan that supports “intellectual and creative interests of students.”

    Leave our children alone. If some mentally unstable people want to “worship” Satan then they can do it in the basement of their own homes.
    Satan Worship is NOT a religion and is not protected… unless Joe decides that it is.

    Lucien Greaves has his day coming if he does not wake up from worshiping that old devil, Satan. If he does not repent by asking God to forgive him through Jesus Christ then he has his punishment in hellfire coming. I never want to come face to face with that devil for that kind of human being would just as soon to murder you as to look at you. I pray to my Father in Heaven to take this man from among good people and put him somewhere where he will be so secluded in criminals quarters that it will not be possible for him to have access to anybody or anything except the most life possible.

Report: Denver area migrants cost $340 million to shelter, educate

A report by the free-market Common Sense Institute found the more than 42,000 migrants who have arrived in Denver over the last year and a half have cost the region as much as $340 million. The city of Denver, local school districts, and the region’s health-care system have spent between $216 million and $340 million combined to shelter, feed, clothe, and educate the migrants, and to provide them with emergency medical care.

National Review explains the report builds off a previous report from March that conservatively found that the migrants had cost the region at least $170 million. “Costs are never localized,” said DJ Summers, the institute’s research director. “They expand outward.”

Democratic leaders are being blamed for their welcoming posture toward immigrants generally, and their sanctuary-city policies, which curtail law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal immigration agents. Since late December 2022, at least 42,269 migrants — or “newcomers” as Denver leaders call them — have arrived in the city, adds National Review.

The Common Sense Institute report found that the migrant crisis has also hit local emergency rooms hard with extensive expenses. Since December 2022, migrants have made more than 16,000 visits to metro emergency departments. At an estimated cost of about $3,000 per visit, that has resulted in nearly $48 million in uncompensated care.

Summers said those costs are “stressing existing health care organizations,” but they also indirectly hit residents in their pocketbooks through increased insurance prices.

Metro school districts have endured the biggest financial hit — estimated between $98 million and $222 million — according to the Common Sense Institute report. The large range in costs is due to the difficulties researchers had identifying exactly how many new foreign students are tied to the migrant crisis.

The researchers found that since December 2022, 15,725 foreign students have enrolled in local schools. Of those, 6,929 have come from the five countries most closely identified with the migrant crisis — Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

On average, it costs a little over $14,000 to educate a student for a year in a Denver-area public school, but Summers said migrant students likely cost more.

“They have transportation needs that are different, they have acculturation needs that are going to be different, language assistance needs that are going to be different,” he said. “Many of them might need to get up to speed in curriculum. They might need outside tutoring.”

Earlier this year, Colorado lawmakers approved $24 million in state funding to help school districts statewide plug budget holes related to the migrant students.

Summers said the updated Common Sense Institute tally is likely still missing some costs related to the ongoing migrant crisis.

“There are definitely additional costs. We just don’t have a great way to measure them just yet,” he said, noting legal fees, crime, and unreported business and nonprofit expenses.
