  • Good for them. The coloring book has some words that Christianity needs to learn, like "acceptance" and "care"

  • What is the world coming to :(

  • Yay, satansism

  • all the abrahamic religions say that women are property and should be sexually submissive to men. it says that women can be traded, sold, and married off in the name of money and family progression and women should be forced into marriage with their rapist. They preach violence and genocide for their gods. What does Satanism say? It says that rape is abhorrent and considers rape to be one of the biggest deadly sins as well as "Do not harm little children." and " Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food." It teaches love, respect and humanity. It tells you don't be disrespectful in another person's house, it says don't be obnoxious in public, it says don't rape people, because it's wrong. Christianity needs to catch up on morals.

  • I am not well versed in satanism but as long as it doesn't promote breaking any laws .

  • I can honestly say that I couldn't care less that some Floridian satanists are handing out coloring books to schoolchildren.

  • Free Country. Just don't encourage them to hurt others in the name of their religious belief.

  • You can't expect a school to accept only one religion..this is america a beautiful melting pot of cultures,races & religion. If one religion is allowed then all must be allowed. Do you think the non-christians were happy to have christians coming to the school and giving out christians materials -no but as christians that apparently didn't enter your mind so now satanist are doing exactly what you were doing but because of their beliefs and you're afraid and acting very intolerant.

  • I am strongly in favor of this! Theistic Satanism is a very positive religion!

  • I'm against any religion using a school to distribute it's materials.

  • DID YOU TAKE THE LINK!!! It is symbolistic and should not be released. Take the link.

  • To accept a monster like so known as Satan or Lucifer the devils child sickens me but I guess they have the right there is no law I believing a divine of any kind good or bad unless you perform unspeakable acts in his, or her name

  • I agree with the first guy wampe

  • What exactly is the point of releasing something you know will cause major conflict? That's esp. strange for LaVeyan Satanism which doesn't really endorse proselytizing behavior.

  • i believe in God and Jesus and i dont think it is right for children to learn about satan when the schools wont let the kids learn about God

  • No school should be supporting religion, unless it is to learn about world religions as an elective class.

  • Avoiding religious bias here, it infringes the constitutional right of "freedom of religion" and it is religious discrimination and due to the school's harassment law this would be illegal.

  • I'm against any religion doing this, but, just for the sake of annoying Christian parents whose children come home with a Satanist colouring book, I would almost vote pro.

@wampe same here but i just placed the popcorn in the microwave.
reece says2014-11-03T12:20:10.7236393-06:00
Come on people, my popcorn's going cold.
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:35:35.2205130-06:00
Reece: I don't understand why you feel the need to insult other religions. Why can't you just let them believe what they want?
reece says2014-11-03T12:37:11.5342956-06:00
@PetersSmith this wasn't even meant as an insult.
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:37:45.0896805-06:00
Reece: The coloring book has some words that Christianity needs to learn, like "acceptance" and "care".
reece says2014-11-03T12:39:47.9700928-06:00
@PetersSmith Whats your point?
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:40:26.0338488-06:00
Reece: That you're insulting Christianity...
discomfiting says2014-11-03T12:41:04.6436013-06:00
Is it on freedom of speech to insult religion? It doesn't infringe on them believing in that religion.
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:42:10.0939460-06:00
Discomfiting: I'm not saying that he can't do it, I'm questioning why he feels the need to.
reece says2014-11-03T12:42:45.5281546-06:00
@PetersSmith i think the truth can be an insult.So yeah i am insulting them.
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:43:53.7898048-06:00
Reece: The truth? More than a few Christians are "caring" and "accepting". From what it seems, you aren't very accepting of religions. Makes it ironic I guess.
reece says2014-11-03T12:44:54.4613281-06:00
@PetersSmith that's them as people, not their religion.
reece says2014-11-03T12:45:26.0043259-06:00
Bad ideas call for criticism.
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:47:22.7383776-06:00
Reece: They are the ones following the religious doctrine, and since they are "caring" it can be concluded that the religion had to influence them in being that way. But for the sake of argument, let me agree with you any way since you probably won't accept what I just said. You still aren't aren't accepting of the religions, which makes it ironic.
discomfiting says2014-11-03T12:47:38.9778735-06:00
Why criticize anything? Because you feel like it needs to be addressed and light needs to be shed onto the issue.
reece says2014-11-03T12:50:08.5426136-06:00
@PetersSmith can we agree that without progressives we would still have the OT?
PetersSmith says2014-11-03T12:50:09.1198284-06:00
Discomfiting: It's been addressed enough. We get it, you don't like religions. You aren't even criticizing them, you're blatantly insulting them. Even if you are criticizing them, we've heard enough of it and almost all of the arguments for and against the religion. It's pointless, it's not going to change anything.
reece says2014-11-03T12:52:12.9246028-06:00
@discomfiting nice pic.
reece says2014-11-03T13:12:25.3675453-06:00
@The-Holy-Macrel does anyone react like that to the cross?
The-Holy-Macrel says2014-11-04T06:03:48.2206713-06:00
Did you know that this is what witchcraft is? You do know what that symbol stands for, right? TAKE THE FREAKIN LINK
The-Holy-Macrel says2014-11-04T06:04:17.4836537-06:00
Good point reece
The-Holy-Macrel says2014-11-04T06:05:07.2645301-06:00
But it is the symbol of witchcraft. Is it a coincidence?
Formerland1 says2014-11-04T07:32:30.4653677-06:00
Satanism and witchcraft ( proper term Wicca ) are completely different . Satanism is an abrahamjc religion ( Jews , Muslims , Christians , variants of those ) and Wicca is a pagan religion .
The-Holy-Macrel says2014-11-04T09:18:03.4675577-06:00
That isn't satanism, and in that book there is the symbol of witchcraft (upside down star). Sorry for my ignorance.
runeyugi says2014-11-04T19:12:33.9195162-06:00
Could the opposing side please read up on satanism. Satanism IS NOT a religion, but it is a way of life. The Satanic bible just places guidelines rather than guidelines AND a deity. Other than that my fellow PROs have nicely explained my rationale already.
thisnameasused says2014-11-22T13:12:13.1145850-06:00
This annoys me. Have any of the distressed poll voters actually stopped for a second to discover that true Satanism doesn't actually involve the worshipping of Satan?? True Satanists are atheists. Food for thought here, before more people start preaching about how it's wrong to teach kids about Satan...
