Leader of "Alternative" Religious Group Sues Oklahoma School District


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The leader of a group that once held an event described as a Satanic "black mass" near Oklahoma City is suing a school district alleging harassment due to his family's "alternative non-Christian-based religion."

The Oklahoman reports that Adam Daniels filed the lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court on Monday. Daniels says several Putnam City School District employees have mistreated their three children and made repeated false allegations about parenting to the Department of Human Services.

The lawsuit alleges the district didn't protect the Daniels children from bullying and mistreatment by students and teachers.

Daniels says his family practices traditional Anramainyu, also known as "the original devil." He says it's not Satanism.

A district spokesman says the district received the lawsuit but declined the newspaper's request for comment.
