The Sculpture Garden of Superstition, I love it.

And around the State Capital building. A building likely full of false leaders. How appropriate that seems to me.

The roman emperor Constantine combined both pagan and Christian traditions
together.The Christians of today don't realize they are celebrating the holidays
with pagan traditions.

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


Nope. A bastardization of the name Mohammed.

The earliest known use of the word Baphomet comes from a letter written by a French crusader in 1098. He describes the Crusaders’ enemies in the Holy Land “Calling upon Baphometh” prior to battle.


But men have created all sorts of gods. Read on.

With its long and deeply symbolic history, Baphomet is a powerful icon that garnishes fear and respect to this day. Baphomet has been transformed by time and culture into a rich icon of our modern occult heritage. It also serves as a poignant reminder of the dangers of state-sponsored, religiously justified oppression.

"Intent doesn't change outcomes."

Unless you are Hillary Clinton, right?

In the bible (Genesis), your god gave humans dominion "over all the earth". Therefore, based on your bible, we, as humans, own it, because god gave it to us.
And, your god gave us free will. Using our free will, we came up with separation of church and state. So, we should be fulfilling god's will for all humans by enforcing separation of church and state on this land. Representation for all, or none. We would be going against the will of god to do anything other than that.

Simply common sense, I challenge anybody to tell me what the difference is between somebody going to hell for being a drunk, or going to hell over some idol statue, going to hell for not believing there's a devil, as opposed to going to hell for worshiping the devil.


Probably no different than someone who goes to hell for self righteousness or judgment.


Our souls will only be judged as we have judged others peoples souls. And we will be treated as we have treated others. Some people thinking self righteousness is a sin might have missed the part where some people need a good telling off. It is when the telling off is a stoning or a bullet hole that it gets to be a sin.

The law of the land decides who gets executed on Earth and God gets to decide who gets Hell or Heaven is the real story.

We are to ignore the Idol worship,forgive them because they know not what they do, and be kind to their needs where we can help. Still we should say so, if we believe that they are idol worshipers. Yet it is not a "sin" to let them know it. We are encouraged to rebuke the depraved, and not stone them to death.

We have dominion but we don't have ownership.

That statue, I don't know what is wrong with you hell people. You don't want the Ten Commandments there, like they're going to jump up and snatch you bald or something, so you put this ugly-assed goat head thing up, that one can only suppose is, therefore, a god in your image, and let's just keep religion out of it for a second, it is a real eyesore, would not hire you Satan dudes to do any interior or exterior design, that's for sure. I'm not certain you're winning friends and influencing people. It's like those homo guys that parade down the street, writhing around, in a thong and spiked rainbow hair, all the time I'm thinking how the hell to keep those dudes in San Francisco, praying maybe Mr. Trump builds two walls.

You don't like the Ten Commandments? The Ten Commandments is some good advice, in any case, unless you'd like somebody to tell a bunch of lies about you, proceed to steal everything from you, knockup your wife, then put a cherry on that by murdering your sorry, dead man walking self? And the Ten Commandments isn't such a pathetic eyesore that makes you guys look like the idiots you are, which I would think you'd like to obscure. When God says a fool has said in his heart there is no God, I would think you'd not want to give His case ammunition. And worshiping devils? That is not going to ever win you a Good Housekeeping Seal with people outside the psycho community. Even the devil knows not to go around in red tights, with a pitchfork and breathing fire, and expect to get anything done, knows he must come as an angel of light, to even stand a chance with your gullible, sorry rears.

Also, you're like a bunch of dogs, that bite the hand that feeds them, which I've, actually, not known dogs that stoop to that. You like God's life, God's creation that sustains you, like fruit from His earth, a peaceful society, where those Ten Commandments have some steam, to protect you from everybody but yourself, but you still want to spite God and erase Him from the equation, spiting Him while you've got your big old, dumb mouths wide open, living His life, loving it and saying, "Now, feed me!"? You really, really should watch what you ask for, if you think God taking a sabbatical is really what you want for your world and your prospects, moving forward.

Anyway, those restless consciences aside that do funny things to you, if I owned some land nearby, I think it would be fun to have a giant Bible statue, with a label, big old letters, neon lights for night, quoting Psalms 9:17. Then under that, I'd put, "Have a nice day, unbelievers! Y'all come back now!"

The Ten Commandments is some good advice,

The ten suggestions, then?

You got a point there, commands to God and anybody that takes God seriously. In other words, yes, suggestions to most people. But, I wouldn't say not good advice, like it would also be good advice not to drive your car off a cliff. In any event, there will be a final exam: you get a 100 or no lollipop. So I wouldn't call them suggestions, anyway. Jesus was kind enough to sit-in for my exam. Anyway, look at the Ten Commandments, and you do the math yourself.

If I were one to believe in any sort of hereafter I would think that the idea of reincarnation would make more sense. Keep trying until you get it right, rather than just "believe in Me and you're good to go."

Keep coming back? Say what? I've already had enough of the soap, As the Stomach Turns. You tell Buddha I simply want a refund, then.

Now, as to making sense to you? There's your first mistake:

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.

The eternal Creator of the universe may know His way around the block a little better?

I do believe in God but I don't necessarily follow religion. I might not agree with certain belief systems but I will respect them. I feel that a Luciferian needs Christianity. Sure they might not belive in G-d but they used a religious faith for that "shock" value to get people to pay attention.
