1PM August 16th, 2018 Little Rock, Arkansas

This is what it is has come to…

"The Arkansas government has erected a 10 Commandments monument on capitol grounds sponsored by an Evangelist minister in the State Senate who has been allowed to abuse his public office to favor his religious viewpoint in a public forum to the exclusion of other voices. To rectify the unconstitutional appearance of official favoritism for one religion, and to establish a respect for pluralism and religious freedom, we, The Satanic Temple, offered our Baphomet monument to stand alongside the 10 Commandments.

The Arkansas government refused our request.

In addition to litigating against this blatant viewpoint discrimination, we’re taking Baphomet to the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock and will be there at 1pm."

I love those Satanic Temple folks. Sincere Satanists are just extra-dumb Christians as far as I'm concerned, but these guys are a brilliant pack of creative disruptive culture jammers.

@Loren - Pollyanna called. She wants her glasses back.

Sessions et. al. ARE imposing religion onto what's supposed to be a secular government.

[sigh] Someone get a hold of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Americans United, and the ACLU yet again.  We got another jackass who thinks he can superimpose religion onto what is supposed to be a secular government ... and he needs to be SPANKED.

You know ... after Alabama and Roy Moore, you'd think someone would have LEARNED, wouldn't you?

It's a shame that things have come to this. As it builds up things may get a lot worse. Jeff Sessions has now come up with some nonsense about "religious freedom." They didn't have this before?? As America goes to hell I think the Easter Bunny has informed me that he gets little respect.

It is high time government separates from religion, for the benefit of them both. Get religions out of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. If the Founding Parents of this Republic did not want the church messing around in political stuff, and if the religious don't listen to reason, then ridicule, satire, mockery, and derision are appropriate.
