BREAKING: Satanists Rejoice! Oklahoma Supreme Court Strikes Down Ten Commandments

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In 2012, a group of Christian conservatives, led by Rep. Mike Ritzke, paid for monument of the Ten Commandments to be erected on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol. This started a firestorm of anger among other religious groups, including Satanists, who demanded the right to put up their own statue.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]The Satanists threatened to erect a statue of Baphomet, a pagan icon, right next to the Ten Commandments. This morning, the Satanists no longer have to worry about those pesky Ten Commandments since the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the statue must be removed.

While the statue was destroyed after someone drove their car into it in 2014, it was rebuilt.

A previous court decision sided in favor of the Ten Commandments allowing it to remain on the grounds. The reversal by the Oklahoma Supreme Court is not one that will stand without a fight.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and her representatives are reportedly in talks with the state’s attorney general, Scott Pruitt, to determine the state’s legal options following this Supreme Court ruling.
