    LOL. I hope they are successful. I can't wait to see the conservative hypocrisy on this one.

    A Satanist statue cast in bronze is just months away from completion, and activists hope that it will find a home on the lawn of the Oklahoma State Capitol. Ultimately, the statue — which features the seven-foot tall, horned figure of Baphomet fawned upon by two exultant children — is intended to stand directly next to a highly controversial monument of the ten commandments that was donated by a state legislator in 2012 and subsequently placed on the grounds of the Capitol.

    The Baphomet figure, complete with a goat head, angel wings, and a beard, comes from a recently-formed New York group identifying as The Satanic Temple, which raised over $28,000 on Indiegogo earlier this year to commission a sculptor and create the piece. Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucian Greaves tells ABC News that the statue is a symbol to "celebrate our progress as a pluralistic nation founded on secular law."

    "...which raised over $28,000 on Indiegogo earlier this year..."

    Which just goes to show how many really stupid people there are in this country. I'd bet a good steak dinner that EVERY one of them voted for Odumdum.

    I always like watching the RWNJ's heads start exploding when unpopular, out-of-the-mainstream people and groups step up and exercise their unalienable Constitutional rights.

    When I first saw this headline, I thought of Yakov Smirnoff (the "What a country!" comedian). When I read the story, things made more sense (hint: only a small percentage of the donors to this project are likely Satanists).
