TEHACHAPI, Calif. -- Parents are deeply concerned about the opening of an After School Satan Club for children at Golden Hills Elementary School in Tehachapi, California. The club plans to meet on December 5, 2022.

However, more than 86,903 people signed a petition against the club. "Say 'NO' to the After School Satan Club targeting little ones under your care," reads a petition hosted by TFP Student Action addressed to the school district. "America is One Nation Under God and I encourage you to use every legal means to protect our children from Satan, the father of lies."
