The point is that these public school children are in the middle of a political battle giving preference to Christianity. The satanists (atheists) are making a point to the school leaders by distributing benign coloring books that the Christian community would find offensive and presume to be demonic. The classroom should be free from religious propaganda. If you open the door to one religion, legally you open it to all religions. They are hoping to put a stop to it by distributing content that would be highly objectionable to the Christians - if you look at the coloring book, it is all age appropriate. I thought it was clever.

It isn't clever at all. Satanists don't proselytize, which is exactly what they are doing here. And doesn't allowing more religious books into school just open the door for even more violations of the first amendment?

So what's a better method of objection to bring about a quick stop? I'll be surprised if the coloring books actually make it into the classrooms. The idea is to stop the Christians from bringing their crap to the schools. Lawsuits take years. They're trying to provoke immediate outrage by placing objectionable propaganda in schools to bring about swift action. I do agree it's a violation of the first amendment. My first amendment rights were shit on by Christians at every school I went to. The prayers at football games finally stopped when the Hindus objected and when Muslims wanted to say their prayers to Allah, too.

I consider it protest, not proselytization. Its not a real religion. It's tongue in cheek. Not much different than counter protests at abortion clinics holding up signs with the more despicable bible verses.

No it isn't. Satanism is a non-spiritual, non-supernatural religion and philosophy. Maybe you should read the Satanic Bible instead of getting your information from a group of clowns.

Consider hmm. I never read it. I was always told they were atheists being assholes.

My fault for making an assumption.

You know Satanism is a belief system void of deity and purposed to the advancement of human achievement.
Right? You knew that?
Cause actually Satanism is the closest to atheism of all belief systems.
The old time worship of a devil went out in the middle ages were a focus on self and betterment of self took the place of deity.

No. I'm not a Satanist. I possess no particular belief system and subscribe to nothing in speciality.
But
I do know what Satanism is.
Cause I can read and shit.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Yeah...shameless self-promotion being done to point out that shameless self-promotion is supposed to be confined to certain spheres, because if you start shamelessly self-promoting outside that sphere, everybody will follow suit. It's putting the fundamentalist Christians in their place. The satanic churches have been following the fundies like a hawk each time they try to unconstitutionally propagandize and are teaching them the harsh realities of what religious freedom really means; these have been targeted campaigns that end up benefitting everybody else.

I really don't see what harm a bit of self-advertising is when they're upholding the rights of everybody else to self-advertise or be free from the repressive proselytization efforts of a single, domineering, sanctimonious, self-centered, and aggressively imposed ideology.

You are the one making the positive claim ("Satanism is stupid"), so maybe you should qualify it.
