New York Satanists Plan Opposing Statue to Ten Commandments in Oklahoma

Something as simple as placing a statue of the Ten Commandments in the grass by a sidewalk shouldn't be that big of a deal right? Well, apparently it is in Oklahoma, particularly if it is near the state capitol building. No, nobody wants to tear it down, but a New York based group wants to erect a statue right next to it of their religious figure - Satan. The New York based Satanic temple wants "equal religious representation" right next to the Ten Commandments. They will submit designs for something "tasteful," of course.

Is this a joke, nope I'm afraid it isn't boys and girls. The American Civil Liberties Union has taken up the case and is pursuing the Satanists' rights with a religious zeal.

Fox News reports:

The Republican-controlled Legislature in this state known as the buckle of the Bible Belt authorized the privately funded Ten Commandments monument in 2009, and it was placed on the Capitol grounds last year despite criticism from legal experts who questioned its constitutionality. The Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit seeking its removal.

But the New York-based Satanic Temple saw an opportunity. It notified the state's Capitol Preservation Commission that it wants to donate a monument and plans to submit one of several possible designs this month, said Lucien Greaves, a spokesman for the temple.

"We believe that all monuments should be in good taste and consistent with community standards," Greaves wrote in letter to state officials. "Our proposed monument, as an homage to the historic/literary Satan, will certainly abide by these guidelines."

Greaves said one potential design involves a pentagram, a satanic symbol, while another is meant to be an interactive display for children. He said he expects the monument, if approved by Oklahoma officials, would cost about $20,000.

The circumstances surrounding this case are simply ludicrous. A stone monument of the Ten Commandments sits across the street from the U.S. Supreme Court, so what's the big deal?  The term "Separation of Church and State" is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution. However, there is this:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

To me, I simply read that congress will not make any law respecting a religion or prohibiting someone from worshiping however they want. I do not see anything that says there cannot be a religious symbol on Government or public property. The Ten Commandments, also known as the Decalogue, are a set of biblical principles relating to ethics and worship, which play a fundamental role in Judaism and Christianity. Principles on which this nation was founded. They include instructions to worship only God and to keep the Sabbath, and prohibitions against idolatry, blasphemy, murder, theft, dishonesty, and adultery. Different groups follow slightly different traditions for interpreting and numbering them.

Satanism is not a world-wide major religion, but a cult. As we all know, Satan is the father of evil and lies (just like the occupant in the White House). In this "Politically Correct" charged world, where the few hold sway over the many by a number of means under the guise of "equality," when are we going to simply say "Enough is enough"? To me, this entire episode playing-out in Oklahoma is nothing short of complete ridiculousness. Like I said in my previous article, it's bad enough that I'm supposed to give radical Islam a pass when they rape and murder with impunity. It's bad enough that I am forced to accept homosexuality as "normal healthy behavior."  It's also bad enough that I'm supposed to walk around saddled with "white guilt" for something none of my ancestors did to black people. But now because of some scumbag lawyer from the ACLU, I'm supposed to recognize and tolerate Satan? I don't think so.

Barack Hussein Obama was lying when he said we are not a Christian nation- we are and always have been that. We tolerate others, but the very basis of our founding was on Judeo-Christian principles, not those of Islam, not Buddhist and certainly not those of Satan.

Christianity is under attack worldwide and because we "turn the other cheek" and under the guise of political correctness we are systematically being wiped-out. If you do not believe me, just take a look at what is happening in Europe. The enemies of Christ have all but conquered Europe and not a single sword has been raised, or a single shot has been fired there. Make no mistake, it will happen here if we do not act and act quickly.  Obama is purging our military of Christian heterosexual males and has all but outlawed the open worship of the Christian faith in our armed forces, but to be fair, he called the Islamic terrorist attack at Ft. Hood "workplace violence."

Do you see now why we have to shake this yoke of evil from around our necks? If we fail to re-take the Senate and hold on to the majority in the House of Representatives, then there will not be "One nation under God" left to save by the time Obama is done with his second term.

    You live by the sword you die by the sword. Personally I don't think any religious junk should be on any thing governmental. You don't get to pick and choose which religious artifact gets to be on gov't grounds. The founders were bigots, racists, sexists and homophones. Where are you at fake ass marine. Happy Festivus everyone.

    Please consider the genesis of this, which if not dealt with, will only embolden more Satanists, atheists, and antichrists.

    Had it not been for the fact that the framers failed to establish government and society upon Yahweh’s everlasting righteousness and immutable morality as codified in His perfect law and altogether righteous judgments (including the First Commandment and its judgment, as found intact in some of the 1600 Colonial constitutions) and instead provided and enabled such with the polytheistic First Amendment, no Satanist would dare risk promoting their agenda by petitioning the government for their “rights.”

    This is but another consequence of the rights culture created by the framers. For more, see blog article “America’s Hell: Paved With Rights” at

    NY residents have zero standing to erect a monument of any kind in any other state than their own. Tell them to build it and put it where the sun doesn't shine.

    What other society on earth would be so weak and mindless as to allow (devil worshipers) a voice. One of the reasons the entire world laughs at us is because we're always telling them how advanced we are, when it's quite clear to everyone that we're not.

    Freedom is a wonderful thing, but like all wonderful things, it clearly has a down side. It reminds me of a quote i read recently, which i believe is quite appropriate.

    "Freedom, like pure clean water, is essential to our way of life. Lest we forget what too much water can do..." -- Spider

    Unbridled freedom was not the intent of our forefathers, and neither was the rise of Satanism! Political correctness has become not only stupid but luciferian and is a total distortion of what the liberals now call equality and fairness.

      God helps those who help themselves. God has never banished evil. That is the job of man. But He did give us the tools to banish the evil ones. Those tools are called, tall trees and strong ropes.

    America has become the most decadent, evil, immoral country on earth and will pay a huge price for that very soon. The Church is as much to blame for this as the atheists, as they have completely lost their way.

    • A. Levy

      I couldn't agree more Steve. And all that evil is fueled by the weakness of the people.

    • David Cox

      Born and raised in Oklahoma, I cannot believe this but not surprised. This is the time when those who have the free will to choose God to make it known. Those who have the free will to deny the Son in Public, therefore they will be denied the Father in Public. I understand the reasons for the separation of the Church and State. Scripture is very clear. I am truly sorry for those who do not choose God.

      Amen brother...The Church, especially the Catholic Church is SOCIALIST.
