Illinois school district hosts "Satan" club for elementary students after hours...

(Natural News) The beauty of the First Amendment's religious freedom clause is that it also prohibits government entities from requiring Americans to believe in, observe, or practice a 'state-sanctioned' religion.

That means, of course, that not only do Americans have 'freedom of religion,' they also have 'freedom from religion' if they so choose.

That includes public schools, in which federal courts, for years, have applied a doctrine of 'separation of church and state' to forbid them from allowing students to pray if they want or to post and recite the "Pledge of Allegiance" because it contains the phrase "under God."

So that concept should also apply to the 'Church of Satan,' which teaches that God's antithesis should 'rule the earth' and that all should worship the Devil. And yet, in one Illinois elementary school district, it doesn't apply.
