OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 26 (UPI) —
A Satanic group based in New York said it has been surprised by the support it’s received for a statue the group wants to place at the Oklahoma state Capitol.
The Satanic Temple of New York caused a stir this month when it proposed a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan and two children be placed alongside a Ten Commandments monument on the grounds of the Oklahoma state Capitol, The Oklahoman reported.
The group contends if the the Christian monument is allowed to remain in place, other monuments such as the satanic statue should also be allowed.
The group said it has received a lot of support, much of it from Christians.
