An Ohio attorney general says he supports parents who want to protest an after-school Satan Club at a local elementary school.
A flyer circulating on social media invited first- through fifth-grade students to the "After-School Satan Club" hosted at Donovan Elementary School. The group held its first meeting on Jan. 27 and plans to meet once a month through the spring semester.
Earlier in January, parents expressed concern to the school about the club but were discouraged from protesting.
"The district does not and is not legally allowed to discriminate against any groups who wish to rent our facilities, including religiously affiliated groups," Lebanon School District's Superintendent, Isaac Seevers, wrote in a statement. "The District has approved these types of groups in the past, one example being the Good News Club, which is an after-school child evangelism program. The Good News Club has met after school at Donovan Elementary School for years."
Despite the warning, several parents gathered outside the school for the first meeting.
"We're here to stand for Jesus," Michelle Berry told Dayton Daily News. "I was expecting to be the only one here."
