Look man. I'm really not looking to get into the finer details of why the Christian religion isn't true. We are getting completely side tracked here from the original point of the thread.


Then what you need to do is not solicit comments on those details you're sidetracking around in, say stuff isn't true to people, personally, thereby risking soliciting a response you don't want, or simply state up front I'm not allowed to respond. Anyway, it's clear you need some more quality time with the statue, and, hey, when in Arkansas, do what the Arkansans do, I always say.

Well that's why I'm stopping now and informing you that I feel like we've gotten too far away from the point of the thread.

Having atheistic views is not atheist.

They have a doctrine/belief system which includes some atheistic views.

There is a difference.


I said they are not theistic Satanists, I didn't really get further into their beliefs than that.


I just try to make it clear (to everyone) that an atheist is not a Satanist. (look at the OP).

An atheist has no doctrine/belief - - only lack of belief in a god/deity.

However, a Satanist - - whatever kind (yes, I know there is more then one) - - - can have atheistic views.

Pastor Joel Osteen said you are.

In the Bible we are told not to worship any others gods'.
Having that statue in a public display is an abomination.
Since most who will argue against that are secular minded,
there's not much more to say.

So? Why do Christians get the ultimate say on what is an isn't displayed on State grounds but no one else?

Lots of people, especially Christians still claim atheists are Satanists, Evil, God Haters, etc etc.

Heck, even some dictionaries still say that.

That's the point for clairification.

I am so going to ask them to put in a Cthulhu monument which, if I know my Lord and Savior, will eat the other monuments.

Unfortunately soon after he will be rammed head on by a ship killing him, even if only for a while.

We know his kryptonite: slow moving sailing vessels.

Why did they need to put it where the Christian one was?

To start trouble of course.

They didn't need to put it in that spot.

The Christian one has no right to be there in the first place.

How many lawsuits does it take?

Gosh. You think?

Satanic Arkansas cofounder Ivy Forrester, one of the rally organisers, said: “If you’re going to have one religious monument up then it should be open to others, and if you don’t agree with that then let’s just not have any at all.”

Not everyone believes in the bible, so what the bible says is irrelevant to this discussion.This is on state owned land, and there is separation of church and state. So, everyone's beliefs are represented, or no beliefs are.
That's the whole reason why they put Baphomet up, to show the hypocrisy. It's a public, state-owned place. Therefore, any form of religious statue, writing, etc. shouldn't be on display.
They wouldn't have put up the statue if the 10 commandments weren't already there.

You can take your grievances to Yeshua/Jesus when He returns.

Atheism is void of any beliefs at all. Satan is a contruct of christianity, therefore it has beliefs, a book of worship, and obviously figures. It is not atheism.


technically satanism is a satire of christianity, using the same methods christians did centuries ago when they hijacked and repurposed pagan gods. now its happening to the christian devil, reimagining ol scratch as an idol to rival the big man upstairs. seems they don't enjoy their own medicine.

Ironic that Baphomet, the Sabbatic Goat can represent "the universe in the form of binary opposites" ... here we have a monument with the 10 Commandments on it, along with a statue of Baphoment nearby. One of these is paying homage to a belief in a monotheistic deity, and another paying homage to disbelief in a God or Gods in general


Good grief what do you think Baphomet was, a pet?

I'm atheist.

You can guess what I think of your post.
