Because, why not? The seven foot statue will look real nice juxtaposed next to the other non-religious Ten Commandments monument currently on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capital.

Besides showing the world how multi-cultural Oklahoma can be, Oklahoma will give kids the opportunity to sit on goat-Lucifer's lap just like kids currently do with White Santa.

Who knew that Oklahoma was so interesting?

This is disgusting. Religious or not they are doing it plainly because they want to annoy/ frustrate the Christian/Catholic (two different branches of Christianity) churches and Christians.

Sounds like someone needs to put their dry big girl pants on and quit acting like a crybaby wallowing in their wet PampersŪ.

Not at all. It's a monument to the real Satan...erm, as real as the one in The Bible, is anyway. Click the time.com link in the OP and see the magnificent drawing of the proposed monument. smile

Up to this point I had not fully considered the possibility of worshiping a three horned, goat headed hominid

Be that as it may, the point is that the Ten Commandments monument should not be on government property because...separation of Church and State.

Given red-staters fragrant thumbing their nose at said separation, the Satanists want to have their religion represented too.

I say, why not? Put the monuments side-by-side and let the juxtaposition speak for itself.

If the state of Oklahoma is going to allow a monument from the Christianists, equal time should go to the Satanists as well.

Does this have something to do with where said thumbs spend too much time?
