Satanists Plan Statue of the Devil For Oklahoma Statehouse – And Your State May Be Next

Satanists are trying to get the Oklahoma legislature to allow them to install a statue of Satan after they allowed one of the Ten Commandments – and the group hopes to do so in other states as well.

From Vice:

In January the Satanic Temple announced plans to erect a monument glorifying the Dark Lord on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Statehouse. An Indiegogo campaign was launched with what seemed like a somewhat lofty goal of $20,000, but by the time donations ended almost $30,000 had been raised. Now an artist trained in classical sculpture is toiling away in New York, crafting Baphomet figure sitting beneath an inverted pentagram and flanked by two children gazing upward in loyalty. When it is finished, it will be cast in bronze and, the Satanists hope, eventually displayed in Oklahoma.

The Satanic Temple’s representative said that if its rejected in Oklahoma, they’ll go to some other state where they likewise have the Ten Commandments enshrined, such as Texas.  And, since they’re making a mould of the statue so they can make many more bronze copies, they might target other states anyway. A satanist representative said, “there are no shortage of public locations across the US where religious monuments await a contrasting voice.”

Well isn’t that special?

That’s what you get when you impose relativistic values on a nation. These people are like whiny little children screaming, “it’s not fair!” Well, it kinda isn’t – the United States was founded with a secular government, but with a tacit Judeo-Christian underpinning. Let’s hope the whiny children aren’t able to take over our government.

    Let the childish LaVeyans have their worthless statue. Christians will just turn their eyes from it and realize it for what it is, an attempt to grab attention.

    But i wonder if these politically-correct LaVeyans realize how much of this is a slap in the face of Muslims too?

    Sorry; I’m bluescreening from seeing the phrase “politically-correct LaVeyans.”

    If Satan tells me to back my car over this statue, can the Church of Satan really complain?

    I think it will prompt Americans to associate ‘government’ with ‘evil’, which is actually a good thing.

    Government IS force.
