Public school districts across America have been on a bad streak in Biden’s America, gang. Most notably, the Loudoun County, VA, School District battles between school board members and angry parents have been epic. First over Critical Race Theory indoctrination of young children, then over the cover-up of a rape case.
Now the Rose Tree Media School District in Pennsylvania is in the national news following its decision to alter its student dress code — after being pressured by a Satanic cult to do so.

As reported by WPVI-TV in Media, PA, a local Satanic organization convinced the school district that its dress code was discriminatory against Satanists. Joseph Rose, the founder of Satanic Delco, told the TV station that several of his fellow Satanists with children attending schools in the district made him aware of the wording in the dress code banning any clothing or gear that is “satanic in nature.”
Dutifully, the district announced the change in its dress code policy on Thursday, according to WPVI.
Although we have had no complaints or concerns brought forward by any student, parent, or resident, we will remove this language from our current dress code information in the student handbook.
It’s a good thing the school district wasn’t asked to change its dress code to accommodate Trump gear or religious attire, huh?
As is always the case in these situations, Rose attempted to leverage religious expression:
The idea that a public school would allow religious expression in school, but choose to single out and prohibit the expression of one specific religion obviously seemed like a problem for us. [Religion? As defined by what?]
It just sort of raises awareness for what Satanists are, what we’re not, and maybe helps empower us a little when we have to reach out to the next high school, which I’m doing.
So what, exactly, are Satanists? Merriam-Webster defines satanism as: “innate wickedness,” “obsession with or affinity for evil,” “worship of Satan by the travesty of Christian rites.” So there’s that.
Anyway, Rose told WPVI it took about a month of consistent emails and phone calls to the district before the superintendent sent out an announcement, which reads in part:
Although we have had no complaints or concerns brought forward by any student, parent, or resident we will remove this language from our current dress code information in the student handbook.
And just like that, complete capitulation to the Satanists.

According to Satanic Delco’s website, the group says it doesn’t believe in a “personal Satan.”
We do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions.
Satanists should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things.
Our beliefs must be malleable to the best current scientific understandings of the material world — never the reverse.
I’m lost. Anyway, in an apparent effort by the Satanists to appear as “normal,” everyday people, the following message is prominently displayed on the group’s website:
WE ARE SATANISTS
We’re your neighbors.
We make your coffee, we teach your kids, and you come to our office when you’re sick.
We are an independent congregation, with no affiliation to any other Satanic groups.
Yeah, I think I’m gonna sit this one out, given that I’m pretty sure I don’t want these people to make my coffee, teach my kids, or come to my office when I’m sick. Sorry — call me a “religious” bigot.
Then again, as I suggested earlier, it could be worse. It could be a group of demonic Trump supporters.
