You’re Doin’ Fine, Oklahoma! Oklahoma O.K.!

The problem for Bible-thumpers is that freedom of religion in a society means they have to accept religions they don’t like. Just ask the American state of Oklahoma.

A few years ago, religious zealots convinced the Oklahoma state legislature to erect a statue of the Ten Commandments on the legislature grounds. Not to be outdone, the Satanic Temple, a religious group in New York who worships Lucifer, wants to erect its own statue on the legislative grounds. Judging from the design of the statue, I guess they’re not going to go full tilt and have Satan’s erect penis double as a sundial.

What? No goat leggings? Dan Aykroyd will be angry.

Me? I’m waiting for the Church of the Sub-Genius to come up with its own proposal.
