Satanists seek spot on Oklahoma Statehouse steps

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Republican lawmakers in Oklahoma may have unwittingly opened the door to a satanic statute when they approved a Ten Commandments monument for the Statehouse steps.

A spokesman for the New York-based Satanic Temple notified the state’s Capitol Preservation Commission that it wants to donate a statue to go next to the Ten Commandments monument. It’s planning to submit one of several possible designs this month. Spokesman Lucien Greaves says one potential design involves a pentagram.

The Legislature authorized the privately funded Ten Commandments monument in 2009. It was placed on the Capitol grounds last year, although legal experts who questioned its constitutionality. The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit.

But Greaves says the move opened up a public space for the satanic group.

  1. What can I say, he wants to come out with his pentagram and go public, he (satan) already has the television and movie industry locked down with his influences now it will be a public notice that he has arrived for all to behold. This could very well be a pre-type fore-shadowing to the influence the antichrist will demand when he soon arrives on the world scene.
