Satanic Temple Launches Anti-School Corporal Punishment Campaign in Texas
© protectchildrenproject.com

The growing number of Satanic Temple followers have been making their presence felt across America and are now campaigning to outlaw corporal punishment in schools.

The organization this week unveiled a huge billboard in Springtown, Texas, as part of their ‘Protect Children Project,’ which read: “Never be hit in school again. Exercise your religious rights.”

Springtown made headlines in 2012, after a male vice principal spanked two female students aged 15 and 16, leaving “welts, blisters and bruisesaccording to the teens’ parents.

While corporal punishment is still legal in Texas with parental consent, it was, at the time, illegal for a member of the opposite sex to paddle a student.

The Springtown ISD Board of Trustees later changed the policy to allow an administrator of the opposite sex to dole out the punishment, on condition that an administrator of the same sex supervises.

Your billboard was destroyed last night in Springtown. Im sorry for my town ignorance and hatred of anything different.

The temple’s poster was apparently ill-received by some locals and torn down just one day after it was erected. The group says they will be reinstating the billboard.

The Satanic Temple plans to post billboards near schools that still practice corporal punishment, which is legal in 19 states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi. The temple is requesting donations to help fund the campaign.

According to a ruling by the US Supreme Court in 1977, spanking or paddling in schools is lawful where it has not been explicitly outlawed by local authorities.

The temple is asking members of the Satanic community who are students in US public schools to register to have their schools notified that corporal punishment is an abuse of their civil rights.
