Please sign petition to keep Satan statue out of Arkansas state capitol

Letter from John Horvat, Vice-President, Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), www.ReturnToOrder.org:

On Wednesday, in Little Rock, a subcommittee of the capitol grounds committee will meet with members of the Satanic Temple. They will decide whether or not to allow a large Satan statue on government property.

Here’s how it all started: The Arkansas state capitol allowed the Ten Commandments on public property. This monument reminds Americans of the foundation of our laws and morality.

The Satanists were unhappy with this. So they are trying to counter the Ten Commandments Monuments with a Satan statue of their own!

In fact, they have proposed to ship a large statue of Baphomet (a half- human, half-goat devil) to Little Rock and to plant it on the state capitol grounds.

Some claim that this will ensure true “freedom” in America.

But what freedoms are Satanists reaching for…what are their ideals for our society?

We don’t need Satan in America. We don’t need “After School Satan Clubs.” We don’t need Satanic “invocations” at our town council meetings.

And we surely don’t need Black Masses!

So, for all of these reasons, please:

Sign the petition to tell Arkansas politicians to reject Satan!

We must hold to our Christians ideals.

We must fight and pray. And as good people at Harvard were successful in cancelling a public “Black Mass” on campus, so too we should take a stand against Satan here and now in Little Rock, Arkansas.

But God only gives victory to those that actively do His will.

Therefore, we should pray and raise our voice against the Evil One.

May America ever remain one nation under God!

Thank you, and God Bless!

Here’s the petition to keep the Satan statue out of Arkansas’ state capitol:

To: The Honorable Mark Martin, Secretary of State Arkansas State Capitol

I reject the Satan monument at the Arkansas State Capitol. Satan is the ultimate enemy of mankind. To erect a public Satan statue will bring down God’s wrath and drive away His blessings from Arkansas and America. Please don’t let this happen.

The petition’s signature goal is 45,000. The current count of signatories is 40,133. Please sign the petition and help publicize it via email and social media. To sign the petition, click here.

    Good thing I read that for a bit I thought it was a Hillary statue!

  • Why is it that Christians seem to have no recollection of that pesky commandment about not lying? This ” Anyone who knows anything about the constitution or the founding fathers’ opinions of religion knows this “This monument reminds Americans of the foundation of our laws and morality.” is a blatant lie.
    Remove the constitutionally prohibited Ten Commandments monument and the problem goes away.

  • CR

    True Satanists view the figure of Satan as a metaphorical figure similar to Prometheus, who felt pity on humanity against a tyrannical god. I’m not a Satanist, but those I’ve met are caring people who dislike those who are hypocrites and constantly judge others. I’d rather have 1,000 satanic statues put there by compassionate Satanists than 1 put there by hypocritical , anti-science, anti-human rights, sanctimonious, ignorant Fundamentalist Christians. So glad I left Arkansas.

    “Some claim that this will ensure true “freedom” in America.
    But what freedoms are Satanists reaching for…what are their ideals for our society?”

    See your yourselves. These are our Tenets:
    — One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
    — The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
    — One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
    — The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
    — Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
    — People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
    — Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

    Ave Satanas!

  • Telling what I see

    I will only agree to sign a petition that bans all religious stuff from all government buildings. There is a separation of church and state, should stay like that I am tired of religious people wanting it their way or no way at all. I am a pretty decent person I just don’t believe in god and if there is a god and he wants me to burn in hell for my not believing then so be it, let me worry about my own damn soul if I have one, you take care of your soul your way.

  • Avyn Trahelion

    The apathy and wasted efforts of fools like yourself would be a greater threat to humanity than a fictional character.

  • ColonelMustardThe3rd

    .. Country is all about diversity so suck your feelings in and get over it. As long as they adhere to the rules like everyone else, why not.

  • Blane Stroud

    They can install whatever monument they want. It’s constitutionally guaranteed, regardless of how tacky it may be. Doing something just to prove a point is an entirely plausible reason to do something, and that’s what they’re doing. If one religious monument is allowed, then by right others should be as well. It’s not really an attack on Christianity. It’s fairly matter of fact, and shouldn’t detract from the Ten Commandments monument. It’s a harmless statue. If you don’t want it to be put up, then petition the people wasting taxpayer money fighting it to remove all religious monuments from State property. Truthfully, everyone would probably be happier in that scenario anyways. This entire argument is a waste of time and resources.

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    What folk are missing with this is that STATE OF ARKANSAS inc is a Vatican corporation under the spiritual influence of Satan. It is not, nor can it ever be, a Christian org, regardless of any references to an almighty being.

  • Blessed

    I believe these ppl need to be dealt with #spiritcooking Devil worshiping, evil forces that what to destroy america need to be stomped out like a cockroach

  • runsinquicksand

    This country was not founded on Satanic principles. Tell them HELL NO! LOL

    And you notice that there is not a link to share this on facebook?

  • Petition!?! How about repealing what made this possible in the first place?

    CLUE: There were no openly practicing Satanists, Muslims, no Mosques, no Sharia, and no Islamic terrorism in 17th-century Colonial America whose governments of, by, and for God were established upon Yahweh’s moral law, beginning with the First
    Commandment:

    “…Religious Freedom and Christian Liberty are not the same thing. They are, in fact,
    hostile to each other. The former is born of the First Amendment. The latter is born of the First Commandment. In 1789, the First Commandment and Christian Liberty were formally sacrificed on the altar of the First Amendment and Religious Freedom.

    “When the 18th-century founders replaced the First Commandment (found intact in some 17th-century Colonial Constitutions) with the First Amendment, America was
    transformed from a predominantly monotheistic Christian nation (a united nation
    under one God, Yahweh) into arguably the most polytheistic nation to exist (a
    divided nation under many gods, including Islam’s Allah [and the Satanists Satan]).

    “It’s one thing to allow for individual freedom of conscience and private choice of gods, something impossible to legislate for or against. It’s another matter altogether for government to enable any and all religions to proliferate through the land and evangelize our posterity to false gods. This is what the First Amendment legitimizes. It is an unequivocal violation of the First Commandment and the polar opposite of the following First Commandment statute:

    ‘[Y]e shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves. For thou shall worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou … go a whoring after their gods….’ (Exodus 34:13-15)….”

    • albany le

      Thank you You said it just said it just right….

    • Grundune

      You are right that there were no openly practicing Satanists, Muslims, no Mosques, no
      Sharia, and no Islamic terrorism in 17th-century Colonial America. But to credit the Connecticut Charter is a logical fallacy of sweeping generalizations. There were other reasons, most a lot more probable.

      America would be better off without Satanists, Sharia Muslims and Jihadists committing acts of terror, but the abolishment of the U.S. Constitution is definitely not the answer and you are foolish to suggest that it is. The Constitution has given Americans generations of freedom and liberty. And with that freedom and liberty Americans have created an economic miracle sending America to the lone super power statues.

      • David Hodges

        Edomites and Catholics weren’t allowed either, at first. Too bad our ancestors started allowing Edomite ship owners to sell kidnapped Canaanites to greedy agribusiness tycoons. Our ancestors forgot Yahweh’s law. False accusers were not punished according to Deuteronomy 19:16-19, making witch hunts unBiblically prosecuted. His law was then officially replaced with humanism. Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh. But when a nation’s god is WeThePeople, expect to be forced to bake wedding cakes for reprobates.

        • Grundune

          Say what???

          • David Hodges

            I said, “Blessed is the nation whose God [author of its laws] is Yahweh.”

          • Grundune

            Glad you cleared that up.

      • Nicole Morgan

        Some would say we’d be better off without Christianity. Would you find that offensive?

        • Grundune

          I’m not offended by the ignorance of others.

          • Bodey046

            That is because you are ignorant yourself, and now you are guilty of the taking the same actions for which you accuse others.

    • Grundune is a Mormon who rejects the Christ of the Bible and the Word of God (Psalm 19:7-11; John 1:1-3, 14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 John 1:7-11; etc.) and whose Doctrine and Covenants demand he defend the Constitution as divinely inspired (D&C 101:80, etc.), much the same as with the Book of Mormon. He knows if the Constitution is exposed for the biblically seditious document it is, that the entire Mormon house of cards comes tumbling down.

      He also rejects that Christ is our (ONLY) King now, despite a plethora of New Testament passages that prove otherwise. See blog article “The Kingdom is Not of the World But in the World” at http://www.constitutionmythbusters.org/objection-the-kingdom-is-not-of-this-world/.

      Tragically, many Christians are more inclined to follow Doctrine and Covenants than they are the Bible when it comes to the Constitution.

      • Grundune

        Ted R. Weiland is helpless against Grundune’s incisive analysis of
        Weiland’s half baked plan to abolish the U.S. Constitution and replace
        it with a dictatorship. He is reduced to personal attacks. But even
        Weiland’s personal attacks must be replete with falsehoods otherwise
        they would be devoid of sensation.

        • Bodey046

          Circular reasoning doesn’t qualify as incisive analysis.

    • Grundune

      Ted R. Weiland’s agenda is to abolish the U.S. Constitution and replace it with a dictatorship headed by a “Christian” to be chosen by…well, actually, Weiland doesn’t say.

    • Nicole Morgan

      We are a nation of secular law, not religious rule, and if you don’t like it you can fucking LEAVE.

  • VirgoVince

    WHY is it even a consideration, A flat NO should suffice??

    • No religious icons on public property? Great. Otherwise, any and all religious icons on public property. It’s a binary choice.

    • Nicole Morgan

      Christians wanted their religious symbols on public property. The First Amendment states that the government is not allowed to favor a religion nor oppress a religion. Satanists have the same rights as Christians, so it’s an all or none deal regarding what you can do on public land.
