In January the Satanic Temple announced plans to erect a monument glorifying the Dark Lord on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Statehouse. An Indiegogo campaign was launched with what seemed like a somewhat lofty goal of $20,000, but by the time donations ended almost $30,000 had been raised. Now an artist trained in classical sculpture is toiling away in New York, crafting a Baphomet figure sitting beneath a pentagram and flanked by two children gazing upward in loyalty. When it is finished, it will be cast in bronze and, the Satanists hope, eventually displayed in Oklahoma.
Furious with Neil DeGrasse Tyson o their Fox channels and his anti-Creationist “knowledge” and his truthy “facts” have gotten a group of people in Oklahoma so hopping mad, they’ve threatened to secede from the Union if Cosmos isn’t pulled off the air. You know, to form a freer union with one god, one religion, where science is outlawed and the truth about what we know about the world squashed. Good times those will be.
If you haven’t been reading about this clusterfuck in Oklahoma, here’s the skinny…
A conservative Christian group gets a giant 10 Commandments statue on the Capitol lawn under the argument of the first amendment. Several other groups, including the OK City Satanic Temple, Church of the Flying Spaghetti Noodle Monster, and many others have applied and petitioned to have a statue on the lawn as well, citing the same reasoning as the 10 Commandments. The powers-that-be got all “fuck them, Jesus is the only way” on them, and it all boiled over. Now, there’s a convenient moratorium on all new statues. The model above is the recently proposed statue for the Satanic Temple.
The issue here is that the group who erected the 10 Commandments and the legislators who allowed it are blatantly using their power to prevent other ‘illegitimate’ monuments from being placed on state property. To anyone who has even <i>heard</i> of the First Amendment, there are—ideally—two outcomes to this: 1. Remove the Commandments so no one religion is represented on the state grounds, or, 2. Allow everyone to be included (trolls and all…).
I really just thought that the statue is super badass….

When Oklahoma state senate Republicans tried to push through an anti-abortion bill, Oklahoma Democrats tried to force the bill to go full retard by adding a section to the bill that would make any form of male ejaculation not into a vagina “a crime against unborn babies”. You be trollin’.
Elizabeth Alisha Greta Halfmoon was arrested in Tulsa, Oklahoma yesterday for attempting to cook meth inside a Wal-Mart. The amazing part is that she wasn’t just busting Sudafed on the floor— she had been at it for SIX HOURS before employees finally became suspicious of her activities and called the police. Well, we can’t all be Walter White.

If anyone’s in Oklahoma (unlikely), that shaking you felt a little while ago was a 5.6 magnitude earthquake, centered in Lincoln County. Congrats, Oklahoma, you had an earthquake, I guess you’re cool now.
Convicted murderer Justin “Jus N” Walker is in the midst of a 30 year sentence for killing an Oklahoma sheriff. But god forbid that prison should put a damper on his ability to smoke weed and party like a motherfucker. But if that’s how you’re going to do it in prison, don’t post it all on Facebook with your contraband Blackberry.
