I think we found a new home for Baphomet…


One drawback to the Oklahoma Supreme Court's recent decision about the 10 Commandments Monument is that we'll never get to see our hypocritical legislators walking by the Baphomet statue on their way to passing unconstitutional laws at work each morning.

This is because after the court's ruling was issued, and totally ignored by Governor Fallin, the Satanic Temple announced they would seek a new home for the monument Arkansas or some other backwards state.

Well, before they rent a U-Haul and abandon their Oklahoma plans, I'd suggest they look at buying some real estate in Rush Springs. Apparently, the citizens in town are all about monuments.


A group of Christians in Rush Springs installed two massive, granite tablets with the Ten Commandments inscribed on them outside of a downtown business.

Duane Gibbs, 75, owns the business at the corner of N. Rush and W. Blakely in the heart of downtown Rush Springs. He says his church and several others had been planning the monuments for weeks, paid for them and installed them in time for the large crowds from the Rush Springs Watermelon Festival to see them this past weekend.

Gibbs said people waited in line this weekend to take pictures with the statues.

"They are beautiful," Gibbs said. "I think everybody in Rush Springs is probably a Christian. Or at least they are a veteran or Baptist or Catholic or Presbyterian."

Wow. You seriously think everyone who lives in Rush Springs is a Christian? WTF. That would be as ignorant as saying everyone in Rush Springs is a simple-minded, religious nut job who's done inappropriate things to a watermelon. It's not true, but it seems like it.

Anyway, I don't have a problem with these people putting up a 10 Commandments monument on their private property. If you want to decorate your yard with a list of 10 archaic laws spoken to a man by a burning bush atop a mountain in the Middle East thousands of years ago, and it doesn't violate any Capital Medical Center zoning codes, feel free. Just keep in mind other people can do the same thing.

That's why I'd like to let the Satanic Temple know about this little vacant lot in Rush Springs that I discovered. It's located on the same street as the 10 Commandments Monument. Check it out:


I don't know about you, but I think that would provide plenty of space for a Baphomet statue. To make it feel a little more authentic, they could surround it with a fountain, watermelons on perhaps Joe Dorman's old hot tub. It would be a hit!
