I wonder why that is what they believe Old Scratch really looks like? Did he drop by for family photos once?

God’s Word tells us there are people that hate Him so much they’d rather have mountains fall on their heads than to look upon Him.

Rev 6:16
They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

I'm surprised that "Old Scratch" isn't presenting the finger to the world.

By the way, where did you get the name "Old Scratch"?

It may not be suitable for Oklahoma but it would be received warmly if it was shown at the Democratic national convention or any NEA conference.

From wiki;

“Old Scratch or Mr. Scratch is a folk name for The Devil in the local legends of New England and pre-Civil War America.[1] It is possible that the local legends containing this name were influenced by Faustian stories brought to North America by German immigrants.

Old Scratch is also referred to in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, in The Sing-Song of Old Man Kangaroo by Rudyard Kipling, in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, in The Three Clerks by Anthony Trollope, in Miracle Monday by Elliot S. Maggin, in Alan Wake by Remedy Entertainment, Dirty Jobs episode 1.28 (”Coal Miner”), The Witches of Eastwick (film), and in The Devil and Tom Walker by Washington Irving.”

In a Democracy, the Majority rules, and the Minority adjusts or is thrown in jail.

In a Constitutional Representative Republic the Majority of the voting Representatives rules, and the Minority adjusts or is thrown in Jail.

In PC Obamanation, the counterculture Minority rules, and the Silent Majority shrugs, as they struggle to pay their annual Obama Tribute Taxes.

That is just one of the many names country folk called the Accuser of the Brethren. My dad used that name on many occasions.

Unspeakably evil.

“I wonder why that is what they believe Old Scratch really looks like?”

You’d need to ask Eliphas Levi, but he’s long dead. Levi is the one who designed the modernized image of Baphomet the statue is based on, though it was based on ancient occultic notions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliphas_Levi

The question I want answer is this: Why did Congress commission a statue of George Washingon in the same Baphomet pose?

The statue of Washington is supposed to make you think of a one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the statue of Olympian Zeus.

European classicism was the deal at the time when Horatio Greenough carved it. People either hated it or made fun of it then, too, but it isn't because of Baphomet. They either saw it as snooty and pretentious, or funny because Washington was bare chested.

Horatio Greenough (1805-1852) at Mount Vernon.Org

I wouldn’t stand near that person even if the sky was clear blue. God doesn’t need a storm to let loose fire from heaven.

I can’t believe the people there would let this fly. Bring some pickups throw some chains around it and destroy it. It’s God’s work.

There are many nicknames for Satan, as people feared to even utter his name, according to the old saying,

“Speak of the devil and his horns will appear”.

Ambrose Bierce rewrote that thus,

“Speak of the devil and he will hear about it”.

Anyway, this is appalling! I have family in Tulsa & I am giving them a piece of my mind! Where are the protests from good Christians?

The Obama emblem would go nicely right over the pentagram. If they put up the monument, it would be worth a trip to Oklahoma to improve the monument.

If you look at pictures of Christ blessing a group you will see the two extended fingers together.

Beware of false prophets.

This is blasphemous.

From wiki on Horace Greenough's George Washington commission:
Horatio Greenough based “Enthroned Washington” on Phidias' great statue of Zeus Olympios which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (and which was destroyed in late Antiquity).[2]

The statue depicted above is a recreation.

Greenough's work was completed in 1840, Eliphas Lévi's depiction appeared later, in 1850. It's most likely that both used the same iconographic treatment for their subject.

Shouldn’t the children be depicted like the one they look up to? shouldn’t they have elongated flat noses?
