BREMEN, Ind. — Bremen Public Schools Board of Trustees has cowered to an actual Satanic organization and has done away with the tradition of opening meetings with a prayer. This comes after the school district received a complaint initiated by the non-profit organization, Northern Indiana Atheists (NIA), demanding prayer at the meetings be stopped immediately.
The NIA used the Freedom From Religion Foundation to send a letter to the board in late January.
“Northern Indiana Atheists alerted us to the fact that Bremen Public Schools Board of School Trustees meetings open with prayer.” The letter reads in part. “We request that the board immediately refrain from including prayer as part of future meetings…”
“Since my hire nearly eight years ago, it has historically been the community norm to offer a prayer to start our Board meetings.” Bremen Public Schools Superintendent, James White, told RNM in a email. “While I knew such activities were technically ‘out of bounds’, I respected the tradition. However, upon receiving the complaint, the Board has elected to cease the practice.”
While Northern Indiana Atheists and its founder, Troy Moss, claims to be an atheist organization, it is heavily connected to the Satanic Temple. The organization assisted the Satanic Temple Indiana with a fundraiser called “Menstruatin’ with Satan.” The NIA also set up a Satanic holiday display at the County-City Building in Downtown South Bend this past year.
The NIA frequently attacks Christians and conservatives in schools and other publicly funded venues.
The NIA is also known to provide volunteers at the Whole Woman’s Health abortion clinic in South Bend, where they escort mothers inside to terminate their pregnancies. Those volunteers call themselves “deathscorts,” who frequently threaten and harass peaceful pro-life side-walk counselors and “prayer warriors.”
