Worshipers of soft, shiny fabric have proposed a new monument to be placed on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol. Slick sheets are nice and all, but I can’t imagine worshiping them. To each their own, I suppose. I’m an Egyptian Cotton girl, myself.
And for the life of me, I can’t figure out why the embodiment of satin looks like this.
Oh! You meant Satan! As in Lucifer, the father of lies! And here I was wondering why you had a temple of not quite silk.
“The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond,” temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement. “The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”-via NewsOK
And tacky selfies. You know it would happen.
I wonder if Lucien is just dyslexic.
I bet he was really confused when his parents took him to the mall at Christmas time. He was all ready for the sulfur and damnation. Although, there is a lot of crying and gnashing of teeth around the fat man in the red suit, so I guess it wasn’t that far off.
Similar requests for monuments have been made by a Hindu leader in Nevada, an animal rights group and the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. -NewsOK
Eventually, the Capitol grounds are just going to be littered with monuments. Our pigeons will be so confused. So much selection and variety. Why, they might even run out of time to patrol the car wash.
Personally, I think it’s ugly. If it gets approved (which I doubt), it’ll be a real eye-sore, but it’s not going to cause me any crisis of faith. At least they aren’t asking me to pay for it. As a Christian, I already know who wins that war. Seems silly to build a monument to the loser.
God didn’t call us to build monuments, He called us to feed His sheep. The Ten Commandments monument that is already there is neither sacred nor deserving of any special reverence. It’s a thing. His word is written on our hearts. Only you can let Satan in there.
