I've posted before about unusual coloring books, such as the E.F. Hutton Coloring Book
and the Anti-Terrorism Coloring Book
, so when a coloring book titled The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities
showed up in the news, it caught my eye.
A group called the Satanic Temple wants to hand out copies of this coloring book to children in Florida schools, arguing that Christian evangelical groups are allowed to distribute bibles and booklets in public schools, so why shouldn't they be allowed to distribute their satanic literature. Equal time for all religions, etc. Of course, there's no way in hell the school board is going to let this happen. [foxkc.com
