OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A satanic group unveiled designs Monday for a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan it wants to put at the Oklahoma state Capitol, where a Ten Commandments monument was placed in 2012.

Fla. rejects request to install Satanic display Associated Press The New York-based Satanic Temple formally submitted its application to a panel that oversees the Capitol grounds, including an artist's rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that's often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.
"The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond," temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement. "The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation."
The Satanic Temple maintains that the Oklahoma Legislature's decision to authorize a privately funded Ten Commandments monument at the Capitol opened the door for its statue. The Ten Commandments monument was placed on the north steps of the building in 2012, and the Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has sued to have it removed.

The boy in the image looks just like a young Bathouse Barry.
“I may disagree with what you say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it”.
Oklahoma doesn’t get to decide what is or is not a religion, especially since Satanism is fairly well established, like it or not.
The devil, they say.
Let them put that thing up, if they must. It will not be long until it is pranked.
It’s a chair to sit on the devil’s lap too...?
I can see little kids daring one another to do it, especially under full moons or on Halloween.
The devil is, however, only a little runt next to God. Someone else will put up a Jesus statue, and then the devil one will start to have, well, all kinds of “Bad luck.” Reminds me of the biblical story of the statue of Dagon.
Bring it on. Will backfire big time. Bet you anything. Put it up, smart ass NYC nihilists.
It “could” be the occasion of some spiritual purification, as Christians find out again what really DOES work against the devil. It isn’t worldly schemes.
“Oklahoma doesnt get to decide what is or is not a religion, especially since Satanism is fairly well established, like it or not.”
Yes, as a matter of fact, they do. I mean, if you can, they can, and that’s certainly what you are doing with that statement.
The fact that it is “fairly well established” does not bear on its validity.
Last time I checked, the government (federal and state) was prohibited from making legal determinations with regard to the practice of religion. That would tend to include whether something is or is not a religion. You and I are free to opine one way or the other all day long; that’s because our opinions do not carry the weight of law.
“Last time I checked”
They’re basing this entirely on the Greek god Pan.
There’s absolutely no biblical basis for that ‘appearance’.
In fact, Lucifer was a beautiful angel of light.
I hate stupid heathens.
Oklahoma constitution: “ Perfect toleration of religious sentiment shall be secured...”
And, at the federal level, there’s that bit about “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. The “establishment” part not only refers to the creation of an official state religion, but to whether or not any religion has been “established”.
On top of that, there’s the bit about freedom of speech. If they let one religious group put up a display on the public square, they can’t reasonably refuse another so long as the other group’s display is appropriate.
get thee behind me__________________satan!!!
Then I declare my mind a religion and by its tenets I am exempt from 0bamaCare as its abortion coverage mandates violate my conscience.
I was suspicious that the story was a hoax, but then saw the "artist's rendition" at the link.
They even thought to include the Obamacare caduceus logo over satan's family jewels! I mean, can anyone really make that stuff up? Talk about having a direct line to the White Hut Omen Room. Guess they needed seed money from product placement?
Besides, obviously the Satanists in NY have been brainstorming on their Baphomet-goathead project for a while. Only back in 2000 the public wasn't ready for it yet.
The real point is than no religion should put up a monument.
It’s not a pentagram. It’s an INVERTED pentagram.
If we have degenerated so far that we are not allowed to determine the difference between Good and evil...
I’m not saying I like it. I’m saying they can’t prevent it from going up for the same reason they can’t stop the KKK from demonstrating.
Actually, the citizens do have a right to monitor what sort of “artistic” statements go up in the public square... else we would have all sorts of perversions demanded in the name of personal religious belief.
I never said the citizens didn’t have that right, just that the government can’t take that decision upon itself.
People of Oklahoma, I beg you: destroy this thing when it is set up in your state. There is a higher authority than the law of the land. You don’t want a statue of Ba’al in your state. Breaking man’s laws is trivial compared to God’s anger against you for allowing this.
There should be no private funding of this display. The names of the donors should be featured prominently on the statue that they are donating.
Sick. Very, very, very sick. Unlike Wiccans, who deny the existence of a Christian God and create their own moral system, these deluded demons worship the very antithesis of everything that God represents.
Sick, very, very sick.
I like the way you think!
These things have a terrible record of just blowing themselves up.
Is that little boy, Obama??
I’m not sure. But if Obama had a son it would probably look just like him, with hoodie or without, as seen here.
It is interesting how they make their version of satan look like a smiling, loving unicorn/goat with a caduceus for a phallus, drawing in the young children.
Let them put that thing up, if they must. It will not be long until it is pranked.
I think the Satan statue is an outstanding idea. Placed in proximity to the 10 Commandments, it will serve as a constant reminder to those who would violate the commandments. Satan’s going to GET YOU!.
And Barry went on to star in his own depiction of Ol' Scratch!
Obama had hired such a "devil" to be his, of all things, Safe School Czar...

'Safe school czar' encouraged child sex with an older man
September 28, 2009
A teacher was told by a 15-year-old high school sophomore that he was having homosexual sex with an "older man." At the very least, statutory rape occurred. Fox News reported that the teacher violated a state law requiring that he report the abuse. That former teacher, Kevin Jennings, is President Obama's "safe school czar".
According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. ..."
On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated." ..."
Commissioned by Michael Jackson and painted over a 17-year period, these unusual artworks were painted by David Nordahl. In them, the late King of Pop appears in a variety of intimate poses such as this one seemingly modelled on Michelangelo's David, with half naked cherubs surrounding the star
Islam just happens to be one of the few killing religions that the West has not wiped out.....yes, a people have a right to protect themselves from evil religions or religious practices willing to take lives.
Let them put it up. I’ve seen what happens to innocents stop signs in Oklahoma.
Under that logic the American Indian tribes such as the Pawnee's have a right to their religious freedoms which were well established before we got here and restart their human and animal sacrifices.
Yes, government does have rights to make legal determinations up to a point to stop religions that abuse or kill others it just can not go any farther than that.
Ahhhh, I see the pan pipe in his garment.
It also interesting that Micheal is a grown, feminine looking white man in the painting and there is a sleeping black child at his feet, with white children tending both him and the black child.
I’m surprised that the child to his left shoulder doesn’t have a loin cloth— his adult self is covered and all the children are carefully positioned to hide identifiers... except the one that looks to be a female child.
I’ve never seen that painting but it certainly says a lot. He was messed up and his childhood must have really sucked, I don’t even want to think about it. Sad.
Poor thing was a multimillionaire superstar sensation as a kid.

Summer Solstice Ritual at Cleopatra's Needle
Summer Solstice Celebration In Central Park with Stephen Popiotek and Maryanne Savino
Monday, June 21, 2010
The Summer Solstice is a time for celebration, joy, playfulness, creative power and fullness of life. It is also a time for purification and self-renewal, a day to see the creator in everyone you come in contact with and to recognize their divinity along with the recognition of your own God/Goddess self.
On June 21, 2010 at 7:28 am EDT, marks the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the longest day of the year, when the Sun is directly over the tropic of Cancer at noon. "Solstice" is a Latin word meaning-"sun stands still"
It will be held at Cleopatra's Needle, a potent vortex in the form of an obelisk that is from the Egyptian City of The Sun and is 3.5 thousand years old. As such it is an appropriate antenna/transducer for anchoring the Rays of the Sun while it is at its highest point.
Maryanne will be invoking sacred light languages and other musical forms by way of vocal tones and crystal singing bowls. She will also offer a sacred dance transmission in honor of the Divine Mother.
Stephen will be leading a channeled Guided Meditation/Activation utilizing a multitude of Archetypal systems including Kabalistic and Egyptian Mysticism, incorporate the assistance of many Light beings from the Angelic and inner planetary to the Solar and Galactic realms.
Together they will harness and anchor the energies of the summer solstice for personal and planetary healing, empowerment & transformation.
"Please join us for this magical evening as we connect with the sacredness of life!"
Cost: $15-$25 sliding scale
Location: Cleopatra's needle (the obelisk in Central Park) enter in at 79th street@5th ave. (North entrance) on the same block as the Metropolitan Museum. Stay to the right as you walk behind the museum. About half way around, you will see an under path-tunnel on the left, walk through and make the first right and the Obelisk will be on the right side surrounded by a grove of trees
NYC WITCHES DO IT ALL IN THE OCCULT WORLD! COME JOIN US!
This group meets to network and share occult information...what Pagans are doing in their neighborhoods and just have fun. No initiation degrees needed...we are not out to make money! All sister/brother witches raise a glass to the right to be YOU!
Cleopatra’s Needle, isn’t that the one Egypt wants back because we aren’t properly protecting and caring for it? It seems the worshipers would be raising funds to care for it.
That lady is creepy. I would have told her not to worry and doesn’t she know that if they’re proper satanists— they won’t show up in a photo anyhow and I’m just doing a quality check, then I would have cackled like mad. She would have puzzled a minute and then she would have thought me nuts... maybe enough to back off. :p
Is that a true capture of the debate?
I mean- is that photo shopped or real?
I would never want that. I think they trade their soul for it. Not worth it in my opinion. I would never want to be famous or have scads of money--I would hand out that money just as fast as I could.
