Kind of reminds me of the guy from Pan's Labyrinth.

no worse than a Stature of Jesus or the ten commandment monument that was there before.

Satanists have as much rights as Christians. Freedom of religion, get used to it.

Are you really that stupid? it's a hypothetical yes or no question. And yes there was a Christian monument of that spot before.

This statue hasn't been built yet and ay not even be built, yet you are already talking about it being vandalised. So yes you do.

You must be trolling.

Well, our old friend Lucifer IS the prince of the world after all, isn't? Deserves nothing less than a monument in his praise.

Denying your faith hurts Jesus.

Baphomet is gonna get you while you sleep...just watch.

Good for them though. If nothing else, this will just piss off the Christians and when has that ever not been fun?

Oklahoma doesn't allow same sex marriage. Don't make your trolling so obvious.

It's actually just an opportunistic publicity stunt, and it's working.

I actually agree. I hope hey don't approve it and tear down the 10 commandments as well.

Love this gem of a quote from the article: "I think we need to be tolerant of people who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma, and that's not going to fly here."

#42 Posted by Makhaidos (2162 posts) -

“The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond,” Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves told Raw Story. “The statue will serve as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures. 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.”

I laughed so hard when I read this. Also, Lucien Greaves is the perfect name for a Satanist.

I think they're trolling Republicans more than Christians. But if one religion gets an icon in the state capital, then any religion gets their icon in the state capital.

It's immature and will never be allowed at the capitol.

I'm fine with people of every religion expressing their religious views however they see fit. However, having a "New York-based" group do so in a place they do not even live is a little odd. Sure, let minority views express themselves freely. However, doing so with the sole intention be to upset people of other viewpoints is a bit much (mind you, I hold fellow Christians to the same standard).

What makes you think they are doing it to upset people? It's quite obviously a statement on freedom of religion. Only an intolerant bigot would be offended because if you think rationally about it, there's nothing offensive about it.

Isn't that Baphomet not Satan? Or does Baphoment literally represent Satan? My knowledge of the occult is limited.

Also, the addition of a phallus would make it exponentially more epic.
