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.
Could Satanists get their own monument at the Oklahoma state capitol? Dark Lord and Comforter willing.
In 2009, the Oklahoma state legislature approved a 10 Commandments monument on state capitol grounds. So this week, the Satanic Temple of New York applied to build a $20,000 monument to do the same. They say the monument will be “tasteful”, and if there’s a Christian monument at the state capitol, other religions should also be represented.
If the Mormons can posthumously baptize someone as Mormon, so can the Satanists. In a recent ritual, the Satanic Temple invited lesbians to come and make out on the grave of Fred Phelps’ mother and declaring her posthumously as a Satanic lesbian. Furthermore, they state that from here on out, any time there’s same sex lovin’ on her grave, the Lady Phelps will receive lesbian pleasures in Hell.
