Satan statue design revealed after 10 Commandments open flood gates in Oklahoma

A Satan statue design was recently unveiled by the folks who want the same exposure for Satan as awarded to the 10 Commandments at the Oklahoma State House. The proposed Satan statue has a horned rendition of Satan sitting with a child at either side looking up at this half animal and half human with adoring facial expressions.

According to 14U News on Jan. 7, the statue also doubles as a chair so people can sit on Satan’s lap if they feel the need. This Satan statue is propose by the Satan Temple followers who take the stand that if the 10 Commandments can adorn the state capitol, then Satan should be awarded the same type of exposure.

This horned goat god of Pagans and Satanists statue is the brain child of the Satanic Temple, which has their headquarters in New York City, according to Syracuse.com

While the word Satan conjures up thoughts of evil, this is a statue that promotes what the modern day Satanists are preaching. This religion is promoting greater love and empathy of all things living, which is a commendable stand to take, but throwing Satan in the middle sends mixed messages. It’s the “Satan” connotation that’s the biggest hurdle for people to overcome, because of what Satan traditionally stands for.

The statue depicts Baphomet, a goat headed god of the Pagans and Satanists siting on a pentagram throne. It is seven-feet high and it’s being billed as a statue that “will serve as a beacon calling for compassion among all living creatures.”

The application seeking permission to erect this statue is now in the hands of the people who oversee the Oklahoma Capitol grounds. The 10 Commandment sculpture has opened the flood gates for other groups wanting their statues to represent their messages placed alongside of the 10 Commandments.

Requests from an animal rights group, a Hindu leader from Nevada and the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”are just a few of the requests coming in to erect statues.

The Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission has placed a moratorium on considering any new requests. While anyone can still put in a request, you shouldn’t expect a timely reply. The commission won’t review them for some time to come.
