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.


C: I believe Jesus Christ is the son of the god who created the world, and that all who do not worship him shall be punished!

S: What a coinydink! Me too!

C: Praise Jesus!

S: Nah, fark the Nazarene. When my master ascends from the Pit, it shall be only to crush the necks of the faithful beneath the black armor of his greaves. With one hand around the throat of the weak Christ, he shall hold aloft with the other the Hellhammer and shout, 'do as thou wilt!' Then shall follow a thousand years of unending lust, as the innocent are corrupted and the temple whores of Asherah spread the holy communion of Belial, the Lesioned King.

C: Wha... what?

S: When the fog of rutting madness lifts, the befouled wombs of the whores shall give birth to seven upon seven generations of new nephilim to serve the Master. All who served well shall be rewarded with a transformation of the flesh! As they die upon the altars of sacrifice, the necromancers shall chant the ancient incantations of the bedoui and we shall be reborn as bestial demons! Our five toes shall fuse to two, and cloven-footed we shall walk among the unbelievers, slaying left and right to sate our unending hunger for violent conquest.

C: I'm scared.

S: Call out to your puny godling! He cannot save you now. A thousand years of darkness shall Lucifer reign, and mighty will be his grasp. Hail Asmodai! Hail Adra-Moloch! Hail Azazel! Hail Samael! Hail Apolloyon! Hail Satan!

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.


So instead of approaching it as a First Amendment issue....they should approach it as a First Amendment issue?

I wanted to see if they have a concept for the design of their monument and found this

We are keenly attune to the need for a public-friendly design and plan is to make our monument an object of play for young children.

What percentage of Oklahomans will physically restrain their children from playing on the satanic playground monument?

Dear Oklahoma Fundies,

You wanted "religious freedom". You got it.

But, it means ALL religions. Not just your goose-stepping rightwing jackoff cult.

Try to block other faiths from having the same freedoms you demanded to have? Enjoy your ACLU lawsuit!

Signed,

Sane People

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.


Sure, you're not a Christian. You don't care about any religious monuments in public. It's just you deeply, seriously have a problem with other people not liking them, and you can't understand why they won't just leave religion in courthouses. But most of all you have a major issue with them putting up contrary false religions next to the other monuments... which, again, you totally don't care about. But Christianity is the only real religion, of course.

Why can't people just be like you and not care about the real religion being celebrated on government land?

d23: Freedom of religion is the freedom to believe in the flavor of Christianity of your choice.

This is what these people believe....


If they actually got their faith based state it would quickly go from "the flavor of Christianity of your choice" to "But not Mormons because they aren't Christians" followed by "Well, not Catholics either because you know how  they are" then "and not those fruity denominations like Lutherans or the UCC" and finally "We're a state based on Southern Baptism as practiced by Reverend Buck who happens to be the governor's cousin."

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.



They say that when Earl Sears made this statement in a public forum the ACLU Lawyer's boner grew 3 sizes that day.

You moran.  Separation of church and state means that you can have Jesus, and you can have the President, but they can't be the same person.  Though, you can require the President to agree that Jesus would win in a fight.

No.  No, it's not, you farking peckerwood.


There is no way the hard-working and honest people of Oklahoma would elect someone *that* stupid to a public office.

*checks TFA*

I stand corrected. They actually did elect someone that stupid.

Did the voters of Bartlesville realize they elected an illiterate who apparently never actually read the US constitution to run the affairs of their government?

What the hell is in the water there, anyway? Mercury flavoring?
