The Satanic Children's Big Book Of Activities

Damian is showing his class the way to make an inverted pentagram. Connect the dots to make one yourself.

Those are the instructions to just one of the many kid-friendly crayon burners in The Satanic Children's Big Book Of Activities, a booklet that a group of Satanists has decided to hand out in Florida schools in response to Christian groups handing out Bibles.

Spokesman Lucien Greaves:

I am quite certain that all of the children in these Florida schools are already aware of the Christian religion and its Bible, and this might be the first exposure these children have to the actual practice of Satanism...If a public school board is going to allow religious pamphlets and full Bibles to be distributed to students — as is the case in Orange County, Florida — we think the responsible thing to do is to ensure that these students are given access to a variety of differing religious opinions.

Greaves also made it clear that his group prefers the separation of church and state and that no religious material be distributed in schools, which parallels the debate over placing a Satanic statue alongside the Ten Commandments in the Oklahoma state capitol building.

The activity book, produced by the Satanic Temple, is filled with mazes, word searches, and even a coloring page that asks kids to imagine what Cerberus dreams about. The best part, you can nab your own copy here.

Maybe they should give you a horrible children's book column?  http://litreactor.com/news/the-cat-in-the-hat-and-holster-new-pro-gun-book-for-kids

If nothing else, Lucien Greaves is a great name for a Satanist.

Haha, I truly enjoy the awful children's book. There's something about them that's so purposeful, yet they are never, ever even remotely subtle.

Have you ever hung out with children's book authors?  For someone reason people love them, even if they don't know they are writers.

I met a few this summer, Jon Scieszka and Oliver Jeffers. They seemed like really great guys. Although they are writers of really great children's books. I haven't met one of the loons yet.

Long story, but I met a children's author's sister...she was touring doing stories about her brother who wrote a series. Let's say it was about an animal that started with the letters AA and leave it there. She was kind of nuts. Kind of really nuts.
