As many of you recently learned that the so called "satanic" group wants to build a monument next to the ten commandments on the state house steps. This is the most diabolical proposal and idea that has been introduced in the great state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma has a justified system and laws to which we hold dear that keep or community and society safe. Placing a monument that represents "EVIL" and all that is against the justice system of what is fair and just is not only demonstrating a bad example on our community but misguides our future generations in making unlawful decisions that will corrupt our justice system and destroy our state and our people with it. The state of Oklahoma is where justice is served based on what is right! Not what is wrong and publicly displaying evil is wrong. Demons will NEVER BREAK OUR GATES BECAUSE GOD FAVORS US FOREVER!

I am a Christian and although see this an insult, I would argue that religion shouldn't be displayed by government/at government grounds AT ALL! Not matter if it's Christianity, Hinduism, or Satanism. It's not that I believe this should be supported, but what if a Satanist statue was already in place and we were trying to put our celebration of religion beside it? Wouldn't you look differently at the issue? Don't allow Satanist monument and remove the current one. Separation of church and state... It's a principle this great country was founded on; don't stop it now.

Separation of church and State was to keep the State Legal system out of the church not the other way around. Christianity is inbedded in our government and laws.

please keep YOUR religion out of OUR government.

I don't think the writers of the Constitution intended for christianity to be embedded in our laws. If i remember right they came to America for the right to make their own religious choice.

comment...Keep religion out of government. People have ample opportunity to practice religion in their churches and homes.

when one religious symbol is put on government/public/ALL OF OUR land....the is no reason for others not to have the same RIGHT. It seems only fair considering how hard people fought to make sure we saw their religious expression.

David, there is reason for others not to have the same right. First of all because in this country 'the people' are supposed to be the government. Second, all religions are not equal. Some are dangerous.

@Robert Bobby Talley, A practicing Christian preaches and spreads the gospel and obeys the commandments of God alone. Jesus said that no man/woman can serve two masters. He/she serves one and despises the other. Who do you serve? God or Civil Government? Merry Christmas.

Freedom of Speech and Religion does not mean you have the right to force feed any religion down my throat by causing a public nuisance by standing on a street corner, or on the South Oval of OU, telling me I am going to hades because I don't believe in YOUR god; when in fact, I just might but you assume that everyone is a heathen just so you can be seen.

However...

I see nothing wrong in placing the 10 Commandments on the capitol property if other religions are represented as well. The 10 Commandments might fall within the Bible and other religious books, but it also represents morality that is taught the world over; not just in religious settings. Since I am not a Satanist, nor do I understand the scripture of a Satanist's Holy book, I do not know if the 10 Commandments can be referred to a Satanist. So, if a Satanist wants to have a monument erected in honor of their god, they have the right to do so if Christians, or other religions, feel the need to have, or currently have, a monument dedicated to their god or holy word. If a statue of Satan is not allowed to appear on the steps of the capitol near the 10 Commandments, then this further shows the hypocrisy and the hate of the Oklahoman Government towards those who do not follow their exact faith. Not only did they take away full benefits of legally married couples in the state military to make sure that same-sex marriages would not be recognized, they force the state to follow Christian-centered laws even though a vast number of the state are not.

As long as any religious monument stands, any requests from another religion to have a monument on the grounds have every right to be there. So, get rid of them all, or accept them all. If you refuse to accept another on any grounds, you are practicing hate and showing the world just how big a hate-monger you are.

Last time I checked, it is against the Christian religion to hate your neighbor, even if he believes in a red goat that carries a pitchfork.

Religious monuments shouldn't be anywhere near a federal building anyway as it shows bias/preference toward a certain group of citizens. Even though many of our laws are based off of a few of the commandments it still has no place near the capitol. The same goes for the Satan monument. Take the commandments down and either etch this on your foreheads or put up a statue dedicated to this quote:

"God has no religion." - Gandhi

We have a type of government that can handle such situations with the powers for such reserved to the States or to the people. Thus, put it to a vote of the people or let their Representatives decide. Do not accept the un- Constitutional ruling, or precedents thereof, of a Federal Judge.
