Posted on 08/15/2018 3:04:26 PM PDT by marshmallow
The Massachusetts-based Satanic Temple is bringing its Baphomet statue to the Arkansas Capitol on Thursday for a Rally for the First Amendment.
The purpose of the rally is to protest the state favoring Christianity over other religions by displaying the Ten Commandments monument but rejecting the Satanic Temples Baphomet statue.
The Ten Commandments monument was approved in a 2015 act sponsored by state Sen. Jason Rapert, who privately raised funds to pay for it.
The Satanic Temples spokesman, Lucien Greaves, said in a press release, saying, Freedom of Religion means that the government must not be allowed to endorse one religion over another or inhibit any religious voices from access to public forums in favor of another.
By installing a Ten Commandments monument on their capitol grounds while rejecting other privately donated monuments of religious significance, the Arkansas State government has flagrantly violated a founding Constitutional principle, for which we call upon the people to rally with us to defend, Greaves added.

That's just "freedom of expression". Guaranteed by the First Amendment.
May God teach these idol worshipers a lesson they will understand.
Hey lucien....a .22LR fired from a suppressed 77/22 from say, a dark tinted car window moves at an impressive velocity and enough accuracy to hit a melon under a hundred yards or so....very quietly. Neat eh?
Set up areas for positive things and call them “museums.”
My guess the idol will have as many bullet holes within a week as your average Arkansas highway sign.
If it weren’t for the ten commandments they would have nothing to rebel against.
Satan’s direction comes from rebelling against God.
If you want to do anything with witches or devils, you move to Salem, but the national headquarters looks very much like a shoestring operation.
I would have expected Satan to be a bit more generous to his acolytes.
Maybe times are tough in Pergamum, or across the River Styx, or San Francisco, or wherever it is that he hangs out before the big transfer to Hell.
Pretty sure Anton LeVay had better digs than that.
the Church of Satan HQ is in Salem, Massachusetts, eh?
apparently the Witch Trials ended too soon?
Some people think it started when TV's Bewitched went to Salem to shoot on location.
Ha! Could be

Cool! Stab them to death right there since “Thou shall not kill” is out the window.
Take it up with God - I wonder how they feel about the 2 New Covenant Commandments - love God with all your being and love your neighbor as yourself...for where there is love, there is no harm and that in and of itself fulfills the intent of the Commandments....
Looks like a restaurant you would see in any small town in the US.
