"It's just a blasphemy ritual poking fun at the Catholic ritual," Hale said.

Monday, Jennifer McClintock, Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation spokeswoman, said the Civic Center has hosted a wide variety of groups over the years. She said the Church of the IV Majesties has leased one of the smaller rooms at the Civic Center, not the main hall.

She said the Civic Center has been the site of Easter pageants in the past.

"As a public building, we don't discriminate against any group, whether it be religious or nonreligious," she said. "As long as the group comes in and abides by city laws, we will host them."

Hale said the church is unsure of the public response to their event.

"We're not looking to start trouble or anything," he said.

"We are hoping they (public) will take advantage of the opportunity to be educated. We know Christians can be violent. They shot at (Anton) LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan). ... We have the utmost confidence that the Oklahoma City Police Department will do their job."
