Satanists praise Florida governor for prayer bill

A group of self-proclaimed Satanists today praised Gov. Rick Scott for signing a bill into law last year that lets Florida school boards permit student-initiated prayer and other "inspirational messages."

During their rally, a white sign with black lettering was stretched across the steps of Florida's Old Capitol proclaiming "Hail Satan! Hail Rick Scott!"

A high priest wearing goat horns and four "minions" dressed in black, hooded robes were joined by a spokesman, sound technician and camera crew.

The devil, though, was in the details. The spokesman, Lucian Greaves of Cambridge, Mass., earlier this month had been listed on the Actors Access website as the casting director in an ad seeking unpaid, nonunion actors in Tallahassee. They were wanted to perform in a "mockumentary" titled "The Satanic Temple." Greaves insisted it wasn't all a hoax, although a smile creased his face as he said it.

The high priest, who identified himself only as "Dark Eminence," and one of the minions, a teenager who said her name is Cassandra Wagner, addressed the media and a few onlookers. The girl said the school prayer law would give her an opportunity to explain to her classmates that Satanism is misunderstood...

The girl, though, is unlikely to get a chance to present any inspirational messages in school. That's because none of Florida's 67 school districts has yet adopted rules permitting them. Groups that advocate the separation of church and state have made it clear they will sue any district that allows such messages...
