Oklahoma Satanic monument revealed: Have a look

Remember all the commotion earlier this year about the proposed Satanic monument to be installed in front of the Oklahoma Capitol? Well, Vice has the first look at it in all its glory.


I’m not gonna lie: That’s got more detail than I expected!

From the article:

The Satanists are building this thing, and I was offered an early peek at the work in progress by Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves. Greaves told me he has received numerous threats from people who want to attack the sculpture, but that he “wouldn’t expect these outraged and nearly insensible reactionaries to actually know how to assault a bronze monument without severely hurting themselves in the process.” Still, he’s not taking any chances. The Temple is building a mold of the sculpture so they can pop these things out like evil, terribly expensive action figures whenever they need a new one.

The Temple estimates that the monument will be finished in a few months. Once it’s done, they plan to put it in front of the Oklahoma Statehouse regardless of the the Capitol Preservation Commission’s ongoing battle against the ACLU.
