Twisted Understanding Of The Constitution Leads To Things Like This

This is what happens when you start acting like all religions have equal merit. We were, and considered ourselves, a Christian nation for close to two hundred years, and now we have rejected that label. This is the result.

From the Associated Press:

Group unveils Satan statue design for Oklahoma

“The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond,” temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement. “The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

The group is proposing a 7-foot statue of Baphomet, a horned goat-headed figure sitting on a pentagram-adorned throne with two smiling children next to him, which it believes will “serve as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures.

They have released the following statement:

“By accepting our offer, the good people of Oklahoma City will have the opportunity to show that they espouse the basic freedoms spelled out in the Constitution.”

One has a hard time understanding Satan worshippers. What has he ever done to deserve gratitude, respect, or worship? If you believe in Satan, you must also believe there is a God. For one was created by the other, and then that creation rebelled. One represents all that is good, and one represents all that is evil. If you choose the latter, it shows what kind of person you really are.

One of my friends had this to say about the latest OMG moment in the culture wars.

“”Moral relativism is how Good is attacked by Evil. Take this example. Modern thinking would say that each religion deserves its place, as long as it’s privately funded. But is our society based on Satanic ideals? Is that the message we want to send?””

And that is a good point. Once we start to believe that all religions have equal validity, then this is what you end up with. History tells that this nation was founded by Christians on Biblical principles. One may not like that, but the truth is the truth. The concept of ‘freedom of religion’ was specifically designed so we wouldn’t have one official church that everyone had to belong to as the case had been in Britain. But it in no way diminished or downplayed the role Christianity prominently played in society and the culture at large, both in and out of government.

It is the courts, not the people or the Constitution as originally written or understood, that have attempted to remove Christianity from its historical place and role in our nation. But such politically correct, liberal ideas have led us down this path to where it would be conceivable for such a hateful blasphemy to even be considered acceptable or legal to display next to the Ten Commandments.

Interestingly, the greatest champions of this proposal have turned out to be atheists. They claim to believe in neither, but their unrelenting hatred of all things Christian will drive them to champion the most bizarre of things and support every effort to undermine the concept of God, traditional morals and values, and fundamental right and wrong. See FB thread here.

I do not believe in the lie of blind tolerance no matter what. I do instead believe in wise discernment. The people and Oklahoma have every right to display the Ten Commandments and just as much right to reject a statue of Satan. The Founding Fathers would have had no problem with that decision, and would have mocked us for being played the fool by those who think otherwise.

  1. Indeed strictly speaking I think America was founded on the Judeo-Christian ethic, and of belief in the One God, of course of Israel, and fulfilled in Christianity, i.e. traditional Theism generally. But we must acknowledge that both Benjamin Franklin as George Washington, were Free-Masons, as some others. And even Thomas Jefferson was friendly to Freemasonry. Which of course can somewhat tend toward deism. And btw, earlier in London (1757) Franklin became friends with Edmund Burke. But after the American Revolution, Franklin would speak more often of Providence, behind God’s guiding hand in events. Sadly however, Franklin seems to have had his doubts about the divinity of Christ, and admitted “that he had never really studied the question.” But indeed no Free Mason would have ever allowed that Satan could have any place within Theism or Deism! And btw, we should not forget the great place that the Quakers, who of course came from Scotland and England, had in America! Note the great Scot Robert Barclay!

    • Btw, the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, was the wealthy Charles Carroll, from Annapolis, Maryland. I believe too, he was one of the first and early men who took part in the “tea parties” after Boston. A great American citizen in his time!

  2. Stupid freedom of religion……

    • Surely man or humanity, never has freedom to do evil! Even in the time of the Reformation, people like this would have perhaps been put to death? Not my advocation here! But, again Satan is not some neural aspect, but the personification of evil itself! Indeed no “blind tolerance” here!

  3. One of the best responses I have received so far is this:

    “It is in part also a case of willful ignorance of history. The term “religion” as used in the amendment would more properly in the modern vernacular be denomination. Our first amendment was motivated by America’s Baptists, specifically Roger Williams of Rhode Island, in reaction to the persecution Baptist suffered in many of the colonies where a state church/denomination ruled with an iron fist. The establishment spoken of was the establishment of a state church supported by compulsory donation via taxes and which all were compelled to attend. Free exercise was not intended to throw open America’s doors to every ism and pagan practice but instead to protect the right of citizens to practice Christianity as conscience dictates.” – Jon McKeone
