Design revealed for Oklahoma Capitol's Satan statue

24377317 BG1

As Cory previously posted, a NYC group called the Satanic Temple hopes to install a 7-foot statue of Baphomet at the Oklahoma State Capitol building. They've just revealed their design, seen above. I think it's a very tasteful monument!

From Oklahoma's NewsOn6:
The Satanic Temple says Oklahoma's decision to put a Ten Commandments monument at the Capitol opened the door for its statute.

Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves says it's moving forward with plans to have its monument approved, despite the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission's decision to place a moratorium on new requests.

The commission says it's waiting until a lawsuit over the Ten Commandments has been settled.

  1. In a similar vein, I'm working on plans to erect a statue of Richard Dawkins in Rio de Janeiro to glare back at Christ the Redeemer. Kickstarter to follow...

  2. Please! It's a religion, not a political statement. It only needs to be the same exact size as the other religious shrine on the front lawn.

  3. I like how both groups are essentially celebrating the same religion.

    The comments section under that article is pure gold. Person after person claiming a war on christianity while saying that other item should not go up. They just don't understand how America works, if one group gets to post their symbol then all groups get to post a symbol.
    Personally, I don't want to see any of it, but fair is fair.

  5. They understand exactly how America works. It's the Constitution they don't understand.
