OK Lawmakers: Unlikely Satanists Statue Will Get OK

Ad Feedback

Oklahoma leaders say it's unlikely a Satanist group will be allowed to erect a monument at the state Capitol.

The New York-based Satanic Temple is trying to donate a statue to go next to the Ten Commandments on the steps of the Statehouse.

Spokesman Lucien Greaves said putting up the Commandments opened up the public space for his satanic group, too.

But legislators insist the plan is far from becoming reality, with Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman saying such a display would be "inappropriate."

Members of the Oklahoma Capitol Preservation Commission, the group that would need to approve the monument, also sounded skeptical of the plan.

"That's Oklahoma's House. It's not the Satanic club of New York's house," Capitol architect Duane Mass, who serves on the commission, said.
