Well, It's Not Like They Weren't Begging For This

This has some promise of being fun.

Once the Oklahoma Lege approved putting the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the State Capitol, that opened the door big and wide for other “religions” to have tributes to their beliefs.

The first to apply?

The New York based Satanic Temple, of course.They are submitting a plan for a $20,000 designs. The Ten Commandments tribute was only $10,000, the but Satanic one will include “an interactive display for children.”

That alone caused three semi-serious cases of the heart flutters in Oklahoma and one suicide attempt.And while I will enjoy this process, I think it would have been so much more fun if the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster had applied.

By the way, you’ll love this.

A Ten Commandments monument erected outside the Oklahoma state Capitol is shown on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012. After the 6-foot-tall monument was put in place, the Oklahoma lawmaker who paid for it acknowledged the misspelling of the words Sabbath as “Sabbeth” and maidservant as “maidseruant.”

Those wacky Oklahomans!
