Victory for Satanist in battle over school district dress code

In Pennsylvania, the leader of a local Satanist group convinced a school district to change its dress code policy on the grounds that it was discriminatory.

Joseph Rose, the founder of Satanic Delco, emailed and called Rose Tree Media School District after parents alerted him to the policy, which banned attire that is “satanic in nature.”

“The idea that a public school would allow religious expression in school, but choose to single out and prohibit the expression of one specific religion obviously seemed like a problem for us,” Rose said.

The school district eventually sent out a statement, saying that even though it had “no complaints or concerns brought forward by any student, parent, or resident we will remove this language from our current dress code information in the student handbook.”

On its website, Satanic Delco said it doesn’t “promote a belief in a personal Satan.” Instead, it embraces the name to “embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions.”
