Satanic Temple Calls Rally To Thank Florida Governor For Backing Bill Allowing Student Inspirational Messages

Last year, a new Florida law authorized school districts to adopt policies allowing inspirational messages to be composed and delivered by students at student assemblies. (See prior posting.)  Yesterday the Huffington Post reported on a new development that likely will distress some who supported the new law. In a press release last week, the Satanic Temple announced a January 25 rally outside the Governor's Office to thank Gov. Rick Scott for his strong support of the bill.  According to the press release, the new law "has reaffirmed our American freedom to practice our faith openly, allowing our Satanic children the freedom to pray in school."
