Why the Oklahoma Satanist Monument is Unconstitutional and Insane

A satanic group commissioned a statue of the devil to be placed beside a Ten Commandments monument on the Statehouse lawn in Oklahoma City. “The statue, being sculpted in a New York studio, is nearly complete, according to Lucien Greaves, spokesman for the Satanic Temple.” The statue is an image of Baphomet, or Sabbatic Goat, a figure that has been used to represent Satan for centuries.

I love this response to the proposed satanic idol. “Oklahoma officials say there is no way in hell that a statue of Satan will ever assume a position at the Capitol.”

Satan-Monument“Invoking the guidance of Almighty God, in order to secure and perpetuate the blessing of liberty; to secure just and rightful government; to promote our mutual welfare and happiness, we, the people of the State of Oklahoma, do ordain and establish this Constitution.”

It’s not invoking the guidance of Almighty God and Satan; it’s God alone. In fact, God is the antithesis of Satan. To combine them in a place of authority makes the display philosophically and logically divided against itself: “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand” (Matt. 12:25).

The state of Oklahoma would be stupid to allow such a contradictory statement of belief. It would be similar to placing the Constitution of an Islamic nation next to our own Constitution; it would have the same illogical and insane effect.

No person, nation, or state can be religiously neutral. If a government refuses to acknowledge God as the sovereign ruler over its affairs, it is not being neutral. It has taken a position against God and has made itself the sovereign ruler over everybody’s affairs with no ultimate authority to which it would have to answer. The State would be God. G.W.F. Hegel (1770-1831) said as much:

“The state in and by itself is the ethical whole, the actualisation of freedom; and it is an absolute end of reason that freedom should be actual. The state is mind on earth and consciously realising itself there. In nature, on the other hand, mind actualises itself only as its own other, as mind asleep. Only when it is present in consciousness, when it knows itself as a really existent object, is it the state. In considering freedom, the starting-point must be not individuality, the single self-consciousness, but only the essence of self-consciousness; for whether man knows it or not, this essence is externally realised as a self-subsistent power in which single individuals are only moments. The march of God in the world, that is what the state is.”

There’s no getting around the simple and irrefutable principle that there is always a god in authority.

    What’s insane are those nice-lookin’ kids adoring the evil one. In reality that is the furthest thing from the truth. . .those kids would be rags and distorted. . .false marketing if ever there was one.

    “Our liberty springs from and depends upon an abiding faith in God. Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience … without God there is a coarsening of the society; without God democracy will not and cannot long endure…. America needs God more than God needs America. If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under.” Ronald Regan, 1984

    If you fear God, take a chill pill and relax. He loves you despite your issues.
    If you hate God, get over it; there are probably some that feel the same about you.

    Lucien Greaves, spokesman for the Satanic Temple….I wonder what his
    real name is, maybe sh** for brains? Let us never forget who is in
    control of all things. Vengeance is Mine saith The Lord, one day their
    foot will slip.

    This is the intolerant Liberal Retrogressive movement mocking religion again. They have no shame. But if you say something bad about same sex marriage or abortion, they will come at you to destroy you.

    The Left goes by a different set of Rules of Engagement. While we should never be as vile and hateful as they are, we do need to be confrontational and say what needs to be said.

    They call us racists, homophobes, deniers, misogenists … We need to refer to them as plantation owners, deophobes, junk scientists, Marxists, and bumper sticker intellectuals.

    They act like plantation owners because they run all of the big cities and the situation of the Black Community has not changed. They don’t want them to have educational choice. They expect all Blacks to think and vote Libera Retrogressive.

    They are deophobes because they do not like religion. If they don’t believe in God, why should they care anything about religion. It is just meaningless nonsense to them.

    They are junk scientists because they all believe
