OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) In their zeal to tout their faith in the public square, conservatives in Oklahoma may have unwittingly opened the door to a wide range of religious groups, including satanists who are seeking to put their own statue next to a Ten Commandments monument on the Statehouse steps.
The Republican-controlled Legislature in this state known as the buckle of the Bible Belt authorized the privately funded Ten Commandments monument in 2009, and it was placed on the Capitol grounds last year despite criticism from legal experts who questioned its constitutionality. The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit seeking its removal.
But the New York-based Satanic Temple saw an opportunity. It notified the state's Capitol Preservation Commission that it wants to donate a monument and plans to submit one of several possible designs this month, said Lucien Greaves, a spokesman for the temple.
"We believe that all monuments should be in good taste and consistent with community standards," Greaves wrote in letter to state officials. "Our proposed monument, as an homage to the historic/literary Satan, will certainly abide by these guidelines."

Why not? they are well represented in our society
When the winds of righteousness blow across the Earth their monument will be rubble as the Christ child gathers His people to Him.
Is there someone in this administration who is not a CHARTER MEMBER???
Just note this cry for attention by a libtard. Don’t pay it heed or argue with them about it to give them the attention they want. You know how liberals are about follow-through and how often they lie. Its just to up his “like” count on Facebook by the heathens.
The satanists have every right to tout their religion in a free society. I mentioned on another thread the counter balance to this used to be that people would then *gasp* descriminate against the satanists. They would be fired from their job, shunned by neighbors, and refused service in the community. Now all of those actions expose people to legal liability. I think this is an excellent example of the rotten fruits of anti-descrimination, labor, and thought crime laws.
When a fellow Satanist thinks you’re nuts, that says a lot. Some interesting info about Mr. Greaves:
“In their zeal to tout their faith in the public square, conservatives in Oklahoma may have unwittingly opened the door to a wide range of religious groups, including satanists”
Or... in their zeal to tout their faith in the public square, AMERICA’S FOUNDERS may have unwittingly opened the door to a wide range of religious groups, including satanists.
I, for one, do not believe that the protections and liberties we enjoy as a Christian nation can ever be applied to other religions or political ideologies. The principles that guided our nation can only work as long as we are Christian. As America has abandoned its Christian heritage, new principles of government and religious regulation have been adopted because non-Christians cannot be governed by principles based on freedom.
If I had a hammer... about 10 pounds and one good night. Or, in a group effort, just a few nights for a few months.
A 2-pounder on whack at a time could get the job done pretty quick.
Satanism is antithetical to the concept of ordered liberty.
I thought they already held an elected position? Most of them anyway.
This Satan stuff makes me laugh. Satan WORKS for G-d. It says so right in Job.
How about the Hindu monkey god?
