A New York-based Satanic Temple hopes to build a seven-foot statue of Satan on the grounds of the Oklahoma City capitol. The big guy will actually be sitting, and his lap will be a place for all who want to sit, to sit upon him. No matter your belief, the reality comes down to federal courts and liberal judges, many of whom will do what they can to dissolve Christian patrimony. When the lawsuits come, we can no longer rely on Judges to rely on facts, or the established history of not a single case of impositioning religion on citizens. Whatever our Founders believed individually, collectively they believed a Godless society would bring “extremes of despotism or anarchy.” They believed and stated that our rights are unalienable and endowed by “God.” They did not support a non-religious path to our founding, or following founding, yet provided everyone the opportunity to choose. To believe that a statue of Satan, sitting on public grounds anywhere across the U.S. is reasonable, is the willing suspension of disbelief.
Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. ~ George Washington
If men are so wicked as we now see them with religion, what would they be if without it? ~ Benjamin Franklin
The monument depicts Baphomet, a goat-headed pagan idol, sitting on a throne inscribed with an inverted pentagram. According to a spokesman for the temple, “The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”
This is what happens when you start acting like all religions have equal merit. We were, and considered ourselves, a Christian nation for close to two hundred years, and now we have rejected that label. This is the result.,,,
One has a hard time understanding Satan worshippers. What has he ever done to deserve gratitude, respect, or worship? If you believe in Satan, you must also believe there is a God. For one was created by the other, and then that creation rebelled. One represents all that is good, and one represents all that is evil. If you choose the latter, it shows what kind of person you really are.
The Oklahoma City Capitol grounds bears a 2,000 pound granite block of script of the Ten Commandments. We really do not need to go ‘there,’ because we know trouble comes with it; lawsuits and hate-mongering, and the worst, possible court decisions that will open up rights to groups like Satanists. Oklahoma knows the Ten Commandments, and we know how to spell “Sabbath” and “maidservant.” Apparently, the person approving the Ten Commandment monument, or providing the sculptor with the text, does not.
Before you accuse me of giving in to evil and not willing to fight, tell me how you think we can get around the courts without taking responsibility at the voting booth.
There are places we must fight to keep God’s word public but there are places we should avoid simply because of years of Liberal judges with an agenda, appointed and confirmed by a lethargic and corrupt legislature. Too many courts today are ready to render Christian beliefs unlawful. That’s UNLAWFUL, not merely foolish or untruthful. For all those many, many Christians who voted for Barack Obama, allowing him two terms to appoint federal judges, shame on you.
