While many are upset about a satanic group’s plan to place a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan at the Oklahoma state Capitol, the Ten Commandments monument doesn’t seem to mind.

At least on Twitter, that is.

Fake accounts for Lord Baphomet, @BaphometOKC, and the Ten Commandments monument, @CommandmentsOKC, sprouted up on Twitter Wednesday and began conversing with one another about Capitol plans.

The Associated Press reports the New York-based Satanic Temple formally submitted its application to a panel that oversees the Capitol grounds, including an artist’s rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.
