The Dakhma of Angra Mainyu is a religious and educational church dedicated to Angra Mainyu (Ahriman). Angra Mainyu is seen as a destroyer. This is coming from an ancient Middle Easterner and Indian perspective of the principle of creation through the destruction. Karl Jung defines this arch-type: Destroyer (Attila, Mad Scientist, Serial Killer, Spoiler) Destruction and Reconstruction is another way of describing the Death and Rebirth cycle of life. Systems and structures must be dismantled so that new life can be born. Myths and legends about gods and goddesses bringing destruction to the earth are common to all traditions. Yahweh destroyed the world through the great Flood and rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gommorah. In the Hindu tradition, the goddess Kali, generally pictured wearing a belt made of dismembered arms and a necklace of human skulls, represents the positive power of destruction, annihilating ignorance and maintaining the world order. The god Shiva, Kali's male counterpart, destroys in order to create. The impulse to destroy and rebuild is archetypal. We are bound to that cycle and therein lies the learning. Destruction also refers to releasing that which is destroying us, and, so, many therapists and other healers serve the role of the Destroyer by assisting others to release destructive emotions or behavior. The power of positive destruction is enormously healing and liberating.
Modern/Laveyan Satanists see this as ritual to mock the Catholic Mass in the form of a blasphemy rite used to deprogram people from their Christian background, however Religious Satanism sees the Black Mass as a religious ceremony to empower themselves and receive a "blessing" from the Devil
Because it was a donation, state officials declared that it was permissible to place it on state property.
"There will never be a satanic monument on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol and the suggestion that there might be is absurd," -Alex Weintz, spokesman for Gov. Mary Fallin

When are the self righteous Christians going to realize their outcry over this stuff draws more attention to it? They're never going to completely get their way and abolish it so they'd be smart to take a pro tip and quit feeding the trolls. I'm so tired of people in this country only wanting free speech for those that hold the same beliefs. Get over yourselves, you're not special or more deserving of anyone else. It's like they've taken a page from Animal Farm... Everyone's equal but some are more equal than others. :/ The hypocrisy is tired and boring. If they, especially the Catholics, would worry about their own bs and maybe cut loose some of that Vatican wealth to make a real difference for people. I honestly don't think Jesus would have much to do with most of the so-called Christians these days... They are petty and judgemental, greedy and self righteous. They need to take a long hard look at themselves and quit persecuting others!

If a religious ritual brings about Satan and hell on Earth and the destruction of mankind, then that is the ultimate edge to the double edged sword of freedom.
