The Satanists submitted their application for approval, revealing Monday, this week, the statue’s design. It is expected that the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission will have a very negative attitude. The Commission Chairman Trait Thompson position, directly expressed, was: “Anybody can still make their request, but we’ll hold off considering them until the lawsuit is adjudicated.”
Oklahoma is known as “the buckle of the Bible Belt.” Reactions against Satanism are very frequent. “I think you’ve got to remember where you are. This is Oklahoma, the middle of the heartland”, said as an answer Rep. Don Armes.
The Satanists try to present their initiative from a modern perspective affirming that “Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness.” Lucien Greaves argued that “Satanism is a fundamental component of the genesis of American liberty.” He even invoked potential economic benefits for the region based on the potential tourist attraction for the years to come.
