Tallahassee, FL-

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

The devil, though, was in the details at a rally Friday in front of Florida's Old Capitol.

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

The spokesman, Lucian Greaves of Cambridge, Mass., earlier this month was listed as the casting director on the Actors Access website in an ad seeking unpaid, non-union actors in Tallahassee for a "mockumentary" titled "The Satanic Temple."

Greaves, though, insisted that it's not all a hoax as a smile creased his face.

A spokeswoman for Scott did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
