"If the Oklahoma State Capitol was open to different monuments, we would love to have a statue of Lord Hanuman, who was greatly revered and worshipped and known for incredible strength and was (a) perfect grammarian," said Rajan Zed, president of Universal Society of Hinduism.

Like how they got in a dig about the Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma, which was originally littered with misspellings and grammatical errors.

If the Hindus want to put up a statue of Jesus, I'm sure that their plans will be approved, but proposing a statue of some obviously fake "God of Grammar Nazis" is just trolling.

No, that's the hybrid of Guanyin, the bodhisattva of compassion and the Virgin Mary.

I see that version a lot.

Oh... lemme revise my post... didn't realize this was an article about that Lord Hanuman statue after seeing "Satan opens the floodgates" and thinking it was a post about the satanist monument...

Can you just imagine the HerpaDerp coming from all the fundies who shoved their stupid little law down everyone's throats, only to find out that their demands for religious freedom in public places also means freedom for ALL religions now?

Fundies: "But but but......they're not a REAL religion! Only OUR Christian religion is THE ONE TRUE RELIGION!".

Oh yeah, I hope they say that. It'll make every ACLU lawyer scramble to get this case. If this doesn't make Jay Seculow blow his brains out, nothing will.

Niiiiiiice. Satanism had him covered though


You know, the more I hear about this Satanism, the better it sounds. Its even holding the door open for other religions! Such a mensch, that Satanism.

Mike Huckabee said the following:
The final battle for the soul of man just might be fought in Oklahoma City...The Oklahoma legislature voted in 2009 to allow a privately-funded monument to the Ten Commandments to be displayed on the grounds of the Statehouse. Now, a group of Satanists are petitioning the state, in the name of religious diversity, to let them put up a monument to Satan. They claim it would be something tasteful that meets community standards, like an interactive display for children. Yes, I'm sure the Oklahoma City community is filled with parents who'd love for their children to interact with Satan. Or maybe they could just put up their own version of the Ten Commandments, with all the "shalt nots" struck out. But this may all come to nothing: the ACLU is suing to bar all religious displays from the Statehouse grounds. Bet you never thought you'd hear that the ACLU is doing the Lord's work in trying to cast out Satan.

Satanism is a philosophy for living. It's religion like Objectivism or the Boy Scouts is a religion. In fact, it basically is Objectivism.


Isn't also what Buddhism is? The tenfold path and all that?

"Thou shalt not commit adultery"? I think the great grammarian, Lord Hanuman, should take a crack at this.

Since this is Oklahoma how about a sweat lodge? Sweat your butt off and then consume some peyote.

If every religion and every taste of those religions get equal access we really need to get a ruling on the acceptable size.  12" should be the maximum height allowable.  I suggest doing a monument for druish... druidish... druidistic... meh whatever religious practices.

The Satanists' plans shocked and disturbed lawmakers, one of whom said he was offended because "this is a faith-based nation and a faith-based state."

So where's the problem? They have faith. Just in Satan rather than Jesus.
