Because religion should not matter (too much)

Satan monument wanted beside 10 commandments

10 Commandments MonumentDo you believe in freedom of religion? Are all religions equal? Conservatives in Oklahoma City thought it would be a good idea to allow a privately funded Ten Commandments monument to be erected on the Statehouse steps in 2009. Now a New York based Satanic Temple has notified them that they also want to donate a private monument to stand next to the ten commandments. They insist their monument, an homage to the historic/literary Satan costing in the region of $20,000, will be in good taste and in keeping with community standards. The design may feature a pentagram or an interactive display for children. Well I guess it’s important to get both sides of the story. However, Republican Bobby Cleveland, R-Slaughterville, who is pushing for legislation to allow religious themed symbols in public places, dismissed the Satanists saying they are in the Nut category.

  • These seem to me to be perfectly acctaepble. They’re not being shoved down your face, they’re not insulting anyone by forcing them to come in contact with them, they are quite simply a tool for people of a certain faith to deal with that faith on a personal level. Some of the 10 commandments are actually worth adhering to IMO, no matter what faith you proclaim too :)Dave
