    Should we expect anything different from an Obama based IRS?

    The IRS swamp needs to be drained.

    That's the political side of things.

    Here's the spiritual side of things.
    Their goals:
    You have to wonder what this doublespeak terminology really means.

    I guess we need to pray that people in Washington where these school clubs are being set up would see through the tissue of lies and keep their kids out in droves, and that the clubs would die for lack of participants.

    Isn't Satan in charge of the IRS?

    If anyone leads one of these little ones astray it would be better that he have a millstone tied around his neck and he be tossed into the sea.

    If it's a church, it's already tax exempt. 501(c)(3) not required.

    And as awful as it is, it is a church.

    The parents of those that join may be already lost. The kids that go thru this could be anything. Rebellious, cool wanna be 's, goof off 's, etc. But the sponsors of this may be toast and don't know it yet because their hearts were hardened by the Father. As we push towards apostasy, more to follow as the saying goes.

    There's a huge difference between religious groups and political groups so the comparison is specious.

    Ain't that Constitution a hoot sometimes?

    "Children ages 5-12 who attend the club would develop basic critical reasoning, character qualities, problem solving and creative expression, according to the Satanic Temple filings included in the documents."

    Basic critical reasoning: There is no "god".

    Character qualities: Develop a skeptical outlook about religion.

    Problem solving and creative expression: How to develop an argument and argue with bible thumpers that there is no god, and therefore that adhering to an irrational belief system is irrational.

    If there is no God, then it follows that there is no Satan.

    Now that kind of logic makes perfect sense to a liberal!

    I like Psalm 53 on that subject, but they won't understand it.
    The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,”

    The consequences follow naturally...

    They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice;
    There is no one who does good.

    Millions and millions of people like myself went along enjoying the thrills of life not thinking about God. Then some ones "kid" at school started talking to my son who was maybe 7-8 about God. He comes home and asked me questions. Make a loooooong story short, I became a clinger! I was 40, when some strange kid brought water to my family and that led us out of the desert! If it hadn't been for "that kid," who knows? May be some of those verses of going to hell would of been about my family and me. Like CSNY said, teach your children!!!
