Chicken-Fried News: Duncan devil

The Satanic Church and Oklahoma Attorney General are schlepping their way into the news again after a Duncan schoolteacher distributed bibles to her elementary students.

Adam Daniels, the leader of the Church of Ahriman, a Satanist church in OKC, wrote a letter to the Duncan school saying he wanted to give students a copy of Ahrimani Enlightenment, a book he said was not nearly as graphic as the Christian Bible, according to The Washington Post.

The American Humanist Association (AHA) threatened to sue the Duncan school, saying that equal access laws allow for the distribution of all religious literature, the article said.

The Duncan school attorney replied to the AHA, saying “all teachers and administrators in the district are being advised that they are not permitted to distribute Bibles or other religious materials to students in class or during class time,” and the AHA was happy with that response.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt recently sent a letter to public school superintendents across the state “vowing to defend religious freedom amid ‘veiled legal threats’ over the distribution of Bibles on campus,” according to Tulsa World.

Surely he is speaking of Daniels’ Satanist church as well as the teacher who gave out the bibles, right? Duncan schools have yet to respond to Daniels’ letter.
