Satanists Seek to Erect Statue at State Capitol

A group of self described Satanists in New York filed their application to erect a 7 foot tall statue of Satan at the Oklahoma state capitol.

Pictured below.

OK. Seriously, this is the picture of the statue.
Something tells me these aren't really "Satanists" but actually just litigious anti-Christians. You see, the state Capitol erected a Ten Commandments statue in 2012 and since then the ACLU and anti-Christian nutjobs (wait, is that redundant?) have been driven bonkers.

First came the lawsuits and now comes the Satanic statue. Makes sense, right? Once you've got lawyers and the ACLU gathering in one place, it kinda' makes sense that Satan would show up eventually, right?

According to The AP the Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves said in a statement "The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond. 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."

That sounds snarky, not menacingly Satanic. You need more incantations and saying things like, "Riiiiisee, Riiiiiise!!!!"

Instead on its website, the Satanic Temple states that it "seeks to separate Religion from Superstition by acknowledging religious belief as a metaphorical framework with which we construct a narrative context for our goals and works."

It also states: "Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness."

So they're Satanists who only worship a metaphorical Satan? Weak sauce. Kinda' ends you up in the same place in the end though.

Most Holy Blessed Mother,

Please make sure they have a nice, giant rendition of your "foot crushing" satan's head!

Ipse Conteret Caput!

Lamest. Satanists. Ever.

I bet they don't even sacrafice goats because it'd be 'inhumane.'

Apparently the "crackers" from New York (read carefully, "Pat") aren't familiar with how we do things in Oklahoma. First of all, it won't happen; second, if some court forces the state to allow the thing to be installed, I'd give it a week, a month at most, before it's at the bottom of Lake Overholser, or, depending on who gets to it first, in a frat house.

That's funny.

that supports my point!

The statue is lame. The photo of Ninny Pestlousy is scarier than, well, hell!

You're welcome.

I think they should let them build it. Perhaps after they prove they have a formal church in their community or whatever, then require the statue to be made a certain way. Both to ensure it costs a lot of money. I think it's a dupe by the freedom from respect foundation or other secular cult. Let them build it after a lengthy process at great expense and see if their ruse is worth the money. And once it is built, what. Will they come to celebrate their achievement?

it should be shunned and mocked from top to bottom. It's a pretty 'faithful' rendition of 'baphomet', a masonic/post french revolution icon of the new order. Legend has it that the rogue Templars worshipped such a monstrosity, but the facts seem to deny. One way or another, it seems this image came in pretty much this form, into Christendom during the time of the Crusades through contacts with the Assassins...muslim mercenaries. Surely some child welfare concern will be up in arms? or has the west really sunk this low.

From the article: ""Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness."

Yeah... I didn't get that memo. Because I'm pretty sure it was the opposite that, historically speaking, actually happened.

The statue resemble the god, Moloch. Children were offered as human sacrifice to Moloch and it is why God told the Israelites to wipe out the nations before them.

Our God has a human face.

Child-killing is still a central platform of the current-day satanists.
