    Statue of Satan proposed for Oklahoma

    Statue of Satan proposed for Oklahoma Capitol

    A religious group believes it has an idea that could "complement and contrast" the Ten Commandments monument on the Oklahoma state Capitol grounds: a 7-foot-tall (2.1 metre) statue of Satan, depicted as a Baphomet - a goat-headed figure with wings and horns - sitting on a throne with smiling children at its side.


    On Monday, the New York-based religious group Satanic Temple submitted its application for the monument to the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission, which oversees the Capitol grounds in Oklahoma City.
    Satanic Temple argues that if the Legislature could authorise the Ten Commandments monument, then a statue of Satan should also be approved. The monument would be an "homage" to Satan and a symbol of religious freedom, Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said.
    "More than anything, we feel our monument is meant to be a historical marker celebrating the scapegoats, marginalised and demonised minority," he said.

    In August, the Oklahoma chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union sued the state to remove the Ten Commandments monument because "the state needs to get out of the business of endorsing religion," said Brady Henderson, legal director of the chapter. The stone monument, which features a bald eagle and an American flag, was erected in 2012.
    Last month, the preservation commission put a moratorium on deciding on any new monument requests, said Trait Thompson, commission chairman.
    "We just didn't feel it prudent at this juncture to be considering other monuments ... when the Ten Commandments monument is under review by the state Supreme Court," he said.

    Although the ACLU is opposed to all religious monuments on public property, Mr Henderson said, the organisation believes the Satanic Temple's proposed monument has "every right to be there" if the Ten Commandments monument remains. "For us ... it's about respecting the idea that government shouldn't endorse religion in the first place," he said. "But if that's unavoidable, it needs to at least be neutral."
    Many Oklahomans, including some lawmakers, strongly oppose the idea of a monument to Satan.

    "Displays at the Capitol are intended to represent the values of the people of Oklahoma and memorialise those who have worked to build and preserve our freedoms," Joe Griffin, communications director for the Oklahoma speaker of the House, said in an e-mail. "This proposed monument does not meet those standards and, in this office's opinion, is not appropriate at the Capitol."

    "The Pet Goat" is a children's story contained in the book Reading Mastery II: Storybook 1, by Siegfried Engelmann and Elaine C. Bruner (ISBN 0026863553). The book is part of the thirty-one volume Reading Mastery series published by the SRA Macmillan early-childhood education division of McGraw-Hill. It uses the direct instruction teaching style."

    "The story gained notoriety because U.S. President George W. Bush, as part of a photo op, was reading it with Florida schoolchildren at the time he was informed of the September 11, 2001 attacks by then White House chief of staff, Andrew Card."

    "In modern Satanic theology, the pentagram is far more likely to represent the individual, or the choice to pursue individual glory or immortality rather than union or absorption with the divine- where some traditions advocate the sublimation of the ego or submission to god, Satanism exalts and glorifies it, deifying the human being. The symbol most commonly associated with Satanic practices is the "Sabbatic goat" or Goat of Mendes pentacle, often confused with Baphomet, a figure from Templar legend"

    "The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan. Through the ages this symbol has been called by many different names. Among these are: The Goat of Mendes, Sabbatic Goat, The Goat of a Thousand Young, The Black Goat, The Judas Goat, and perhaps most appropriately, The Scapegoat"--The Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey, Book of Belial (earth): The Satanic Ritual, pp136

    "The scapegoat was a goat that was driven off into the wilderness as part of the ceremonies of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, in Judaism during the times of the Temple in Jerusalem. The rite is described in Leviticus 16. The word also refers, in modern parlance, to one who is blamed for misfortunes, often as a way of distracting attention from the real causes."

    "Two very similar-appearing male goats were brought into the courtyard of the Temple in Jerusalem on Yom Kippur as part of the Holy Service of that day. The high priest cast lots for the two goats. One goat was offered as a burnt offering, as was the bull. The second goat was the scapegoat. The high priest placed his hands on the head of the goat and confessed the sins of the people of Israel. The scapegoat was led away and let go in the wilderness according to Leviticus 16:22, although the Talmud adds that it was pushed over a distant cliff."

    "In modern Hebrew Azazel is used derogatorily, as in lekh la-Azazel ("go to Azazel"), as in "go to hell"."

    "Azazel (Hebrew: עזאזל, Arabic: عزازل Azazil) is an enigmatic name from the Hebrew scriptures, possibly referring to a fallen angel or Satan. The word's first appearances are in Leviticus 16, when in the ritual for Yom Kippur the scapegoat is to be taken to Azazel and cast into the wilderness, but this text by itself is unclear as to the actual identity of Azazel.
    The Talmud (Yoma 67b) and later commentators maintain Azazel was the name of the precipitous cliff where the goat met its end."

    "The Sigil of the Baphomet: This is a pentacle form (The goats head in the circle), with two points pointing upwards, one downwards, and one to each side. This is an upturned or inversed pentacle."

    Genesis 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

    Step 1

    HATH God said? Cast doubt on what God said

    Step 2

    Ye shall not surely die: ADD TO what God said

    Step 3

    ye shall be as gods Deny what God said

    The basic premise and root of every satanic cult, heresy, religion, ism, etc. is the APPEAL to be AS GOD

    AS Satan himself wanted to be

    Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.



    Coming soon: the man of sin (anti-Christ) who will declare himself to BE "god"

    2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
