Would you want to see a satanic statue in public?

A satanic group based in New York wants a 7 foot statue of satan placed at the Oklahoma capitol building. It is in response to a Ten Commandments statue that was placed at the OK capitol in 2012.

An Oklahoma lawmaker has been quoted as saying, "I think we need to be tolerant of those who think different than us, but this is Oklahoma, and that's not going to fly here".

Here is the sketch of the proposed statue.

What do you think? Do you think if a Ten Commandments monument is placed, then monuments/statues representing other beliefs should be represented as well?

On a personal level, would you want to see a 7 ft satanic statue at a government building?

If it was placed there I'd love to see it, I think it would be hilarious. On a personal level I'd prefer not to see any religious monument outside a government building.

No that is promoting evil! I think we should tolerate other religions besides Christian ones but a satanic statue just promotes the wrong message of EVIL. Our country is founded on CHRISTIAN beliefs & Satanism is the antithesis of that.

Satanism isn't evil.

Quoting fudgybuddymom:

It's just a statue, I see nothing crude or inappropriate about it. All I see is a diety, embracing children.

If any religious statues will be placed outside government buildings, then yes, they should all be represented.

That being said, the only reason I would want to physically see it is the artistic side and cultural meaning. I love learning about different cultures and religions. They fascinate me. Even if I don't believe them or think they are right for me, it would be interesting to learn more about it Kwim?

It's certainly a discussion piece.
