The Portland, Ore., chapter of the Satanic Temple has been approved to bring an after-school program to an elementary school in the city.

Finn Rezz, one of the group's leaders, says the program, which will begin Oct. 19 at Sacramento Elementary School, focuses "on science and rational thinking," and it will promote "benevolence and empathy for everybody."

The Satanic Temple has been targeting schools that have a Good News Club, which is put on by the Child Evangelism Fellowship, "a Bible-centered organization composed of born-again believers whose purpose is to evangelize boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living."
