I was pretty hesitant to publish a post on this subject but a couple of things prompted me to do so:

 

  1. Freedom of Speech/Religion – I may not agree with the religious opinion of the Satanic Temple but they do have the right express their opinions and believe what they believe.
  2. Interstate influence – I am not from OK but I am so curious as to how and why any group that resides outside of the state of Oklahoma can petition to place a monument out front of the state’s capital. It seems to me that if you are not from the state then take that petition to your own state’s capital. Oh well.

 

Check out the snippet below:

 

The Satanic Temple says Oklahoma’s decision to put a Ten Commandments monument at the Capitol opened the door for its statute.

OKLAHOMA CITY —  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.

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.
