A monument of the Ten Commandments is under siege in Oklahoma. Not only is the ACLU of Oklahoma challenging the presence of a statue on government property, but the Satanic Temple, is pressing to place a demonic statue right next to it, complete with adoring children under a symbol of the AntiChrist.
These legal battles grew out of an alleged abuse by the city in its permit process for religious monuments. Specifically, the ACLU is challenging the city's choice to allow only one monument to one religion despite several applications from other well-known groups. Known as the "Buckle of the Bible Belt", the Oklahoma capitol is under pressure to loosen up a notch and make room for Hinduism, Islam, the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and Satan.
