Satan Statue Design Unveiled

Jan 7 2014, 4:20am CST | by , in News | Other Stuff

Satanic Temple followers unveiled the design of their Satan statue which they hope to erect at the Oklahoma Statehouse. Satanism is a religion that seems to have cropped up in postmodern times. Its followers are pagans and celebrate the carnal and earthly pleasures. However, the implementation of a Satan statue as a monument in the capitol of Oklahoma caused some raised eyebrows from conservatives.

Satan Statue Design Unveiled

The whole initiative began with the Satanic Temple, a religious group which has its headquarters in the Big Apple. A monumental statue of Baphomet, the horned goat god of pagans and Satanists, was to be erected in the capitol of Oklahoma. The goat is shown sitting on a throne and is flanked on each side by children

Two of the dark mystical poets (Romantics in their time) are to be quoted on the statue. The main message the Satanists want to send out is of greater love and empathy with Nature and all things living. People will be invited to sit down on the lap of the statue for an emotional experience.

“The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond. The statue will serve as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures. The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation,” Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves explained.

The statue is to be seven feet in height and will be a source of inspiration for all Satanists. Certain Christian coalitions and the advocates supporting them have spoken out against this act. Meanwhile, PETA and other organizations started clamoring for statues representing their interests too after the approval of the Satan statue. The Satanists have defended themselves by saying that it is within the parameters of the US constitution.

Furthermore, they point towards the tolerance and secularism of the United States as proof of their right to build the statue. The times of persecution when witch hunts took place on a regular basis are over. Human rights have come a long way and no one has full fiat to stop special interests groups from acting on harmless initiatives. 

Greaves also said, “We trust that this unique monument will also prove a favorite tourist attraction to Oklahoma’s Capitol for years to come.”
