A high school in Kansas, Olathe Northwest High School, has stirred controversy by approving a “Satan Club” despite a petition against it.

The club met the criteria for student-initiated clubs, including obtaining signatures from interested students and presenting their plans to school administrators.

A concerned student’s petition gained 7,800 signatures, expressing disapproval.

“This deeply troubles me and many others in our community as we believe that schools should be places of education and growth, not platforms for satanic indoctrination or controversial practices,” Drew McDonald wrote.

“As an Olathe resident, taxpayer, and Christian, I am appalled that something of this nature was even considered for a Olathe public school. The administrators, executives, teachers that allowed this to happen do not have the children’s best interest in mind. This needs to be expunged immediately,” one resident said.

“We urge the relevant authorities in Olathe, KS – school administrators, district officials and local representatives – to reconsider this decision. We believe it is not in the best interest of our children or community,” McDonald wrote.

Similar clubs have emerged in other states, prompting criticism and legal action. The school district has not responded to media inquiries.
