Satanic Monument for State Capitol Almost Done
The Satanic Temple is putting the finishing touches on the Baphomet statue it plans to place on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.
The New York-based group announced its plans earlier this year in response to a Ten Commandments monument that was placed on the capitol grounds in 2012.
Earlier this week, a reporter for Vice was given a sneak peek of the work in progress.
The group wanted to raise $20,000 for the statue, but ended up raising almost $30,000, according to their fundraising website.
The commission that oversees the Capitol grounds says no new statues are being placed on the ground until a pending lawsuit over the Ten Commandments monument is settled.
