Satanists Seek to Stand Statue Alongside Ten Commandments at Oklahoma's State Capitol

“I think we need to be tolerant of people who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma and that’s not going to fly here.” – Oklahoma State Rep. Don Armes

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – New York’s Satanic Temple released a sneak peek last week at a Satanic monument they hope will sit next to a replica of the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the Oklahoma State capitol building. The Satanists say that the First Amendment doesn’t allow Oklahoma to implicitly endorse Christianity and Judaism without letting the worshippers of the dark lord put up their own statue, too.

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – While I can appreciate his motives, I can’t help feeling Dr. Cox is a hypocrite for lambasting the GOP over being anti-choice when he is such an ardent supporter of Obamacare.

“What happened to the Republican Party that felt that the government has no business being in an exam room, standing between me and my patient?” Cox asked in his letter/op ed addressing Republican colleagues. “Where did the party go that felt some decisions in a woman’s life should be made not by legislators and government, but rather by the women, her conscience, her doctor and her God?”
