OKLAHOMA CITY - Just one week after a Duncan teacher came under fire for handing out Bibles in the classroom, an Oklahoma City group says they want their book in school too.

"It would give children the opportunity to see that devil worship is not what everyone tells them it is," said Adam Daniels, the leader of an Oklahoma City Satanic group.

Daniels says his group wants their devil worshiping workbook in school too.

He says the flood gates for religion in school opened when a Duncan teacher offered Bibles to her students.

"If they're going to allow a religious book from the Christian church, then they have to allow a book from us because we're on the same playing field," Daniels said.

NewsChannel 4 was given a copy of the email Daniels sent to the district.

"Please don't fret, my book is no where near as graphic as the Christian Bible," Daniels wrote. "All of the negative aspects that you could even begin to imagine out of the human animal is in that Holy Bible."

The message Daniels says his Satanic workbook sends to children is more appropriate than the message in the Holy Bible.

"I am unrepentant of all sins and I embrace them, all evil thoughts, evil words, and evil acts that I have thought," a excerpt from a nightly prayer reads.

However, Daniels' church isn't the only Satanist organization that targets children.

An activity book made by the Satanic temple has a 'spot the differences page,' word jumble and even a 'connect the dots' showing how to make an inverted Pentagram.

"An awesome message to children and adults alike because it shows them that they can be independently powerful and work evenly with an entity instead of being enslaved to it," Daniels said.
