Following the Supreme Court’s ruling on prayer at public high school football games, Floridian Chaz Stevens approached the Broward County school system to offer his own blessing to his alma mater, Deerfield Beach High School. Specifically, he asked if he could lead players into a Satanic Summon. After all, as Justice Gorsuch wrote, “respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic – whether those expressions take place in sanctuary or on land, and whether they are manifested through speech or by a bowed head.”
The Broward County school system did not respond to Stevens’ request.
Stevens also attended several local city council meetings in Lauderdale Lakes, North Lauderdale, West Park, Lighthouse Point and Dania Beach, asking if he could set aside a time during meetings to share a prayer to Satan, like many other leaders. communities have done it for Jesus Christ. As the South Florida Solar Sentinel reports:
Advocating for the separation of church and state, Stevens called on several local towns to end prayer at public meetings. In his claims, he cites a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that prayer is permitted at government meetings as long as it applies to all religions — including, Stevens said, Satanism.
Dania Beach, Broward CountyAthens’ oldest city, follows in the footsteps of Deerfield Beach, Coral Springs and Delray Beach, all of which abandoned prayer before government meetings to avoid the spectacle of a public invocation to Satan.
Stevens is still awaiting news from Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Lake Worth and Pompano Beach.
And from this post:
Stevens is the founder and ordained minister of the Church of Mount Jab of Marsas well as a frequent purveyor of abundant political mischief, like this Jesus Butt Plug:
But hey, right now his activism is having a positive impact in forcing local governments to acknowledge their hypocrisies, or face worse humiliation. It’s a beginning !
