It should be fun to watch Oklahoman lawmakers try to squirm out of allowing this Satanic Temple edifice (featuring interactive kids’ display!) to be erected next to the existing Ten Commandments monument outside the Oklahoma state Capitol. From ABC News:
A monument to the Ten Commandments that sits outside the Oklahoma statehouse may soon have some unholy company.
Satan worshipers are seeking to build their own monument at the state Capitol, and Lucien Greaves, a spokesman for the Satanic Temple, said he’s “optimistic” it will be approved.
“I really don’t see a grounds which they can reject this,” he told ABC News.
The privately funded Ten Commandments monument was approved by the conservative-led Oklahoma state legislature in 2009, and erected on Capitol grounds in 2012. It has riled up opponents ever since, many calling into question the constitutionality of the monument.
But Greaves does not see a problem with the Christian monument, as long as it does not stand alone.
