LouDobbsAwaaaay: Satanism is not only a faith, but it's a faith based on the same exact mythology the Christians use to prop up their own faith.
EWreckedSean: fake religion
EWreckedSean: I think it is a free speech clause issue and not an establishment or free exercise clause issue.
EWreckedSean: Bloody William: Considering the rep said "This is a faith-based nation," even if the Satanists are doing this for the lulz, it's very farking clearly an establishment clause issue.I totally agree.
EWreckedSean: kidgenius: EWreckedSean: So how does one type of government land differ from another?It doesn't. But, and here's what you might be missing, Oklahoma told the Satanists "NO MONUMENT FOR YOU".So they are excluding one religion in preference for another. This is the opposite of the graveyard scenario. If they allowed the monument, I don't really have an issue.I agree they should be allowed to put it up. But let's be honest and call it a practice of free speech, not of faith.
netcentric: Well.... I see some of you just can't get to hell fast enough....
Serious Black: Anybody know how to donate to the Satanists to get their monument built?
ecmoRandomNumbers: Marcus Aurelius: It sounds like he wants the kind of country where everyone is free to worship our savior Jesus Christ as they wish.And his brother.

Serious Black: Who the fark died and made you judge of what counts as a real religion?
Ant: Isn't LaVey Satanism pretty much Randian Objectivism by another name? Right wingers should love that.
Ant: EWreckedSean: I'm sorry, if you like to pretend that they actually believe this stuff, go right ahead. I'm going to keep on living here in the real world.People here in the real world believe a lot of stupid shiat: Satanists, Christians, Muslims, Wiccans, Randroids, Scientologists...
EWreckedSean: Darth Macho: RexTalionis: EWreckedSean: I have no issues with letting free speech reign here, but let's call it what it is."I have no issues with letting free speech reign - but those guys aren't even a real religion - they don't get a say!"The longer people keep picking at EWreckedSean the closer we all get to him breaking down and throwing out Bible quotes about how we're all going to burn in Hell. This is the saddest feat of anti-concern trolling from an obvious fundie ever.Except I'm not a Christian. But I see you have to resort to ad hominems so you can feel better. Congrats at that.
Marcus Aurelius: It sounds like he wants the kind of country where everyone is free to worship our savior Jesus Christ as they wish.
d23: Freedom of religion is the freedom to believe in the flavor of Christianity of your choice.This is what these people believe....
El_Perro: "This is a faith-based nation and a faith-based state," grumbled Rep. Earl Sears (R-Bartlesville) to the World, perhaps forgetting that Satanism is also a faith. "I think it is very offensive they would contemplate or even have this kind of conversation."The ACLU loves it when idiots like this make their case for them.
Rev.K: Faith-based state?That sounds unconstitutional.
Benevolent Misanthrope: "This is a faith-based nation and a faith-based state," grumbled Rep. Earl Sears (R-Bartlesville) to the World, perhaps forgetting that Satanism is also a faith. "I think it is very offensive they would contemplate or even have this kind of conversation."No. No, it's not, you farking peckerwood.
