The Satanic church that applied for a permit to erect a monument to Satan next to the Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma state-capitol building has unveiled its proposed design.
The 7-ft.-tall (2.1 m) sculpture would feature Satan depicted in the form of Baphomet, a bearded, goat-headed, winged hominid with horns seated on a throne beneath a pentagram with two smiling children to either side.
The group responsible for the proposed monument, the New York–based Satanic Temple, applied to place a monument to Satan at the capitol building in Oklahoma City after the Oklahoma ACLU sued to have a Ten Commandments statue — erected in 2012 — removed on the grounds that its presence discriminated against other religions, the Associated Press reports.
In addition to representing the Satanic religion, the monument “will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation,” said Satanic Temple spokesperson Lucien Greaves. Full Story.

An anti-Obama beer in the red state of Oklahoma is in high demand. Thousands of bottles of Nobama Brew have been sold, according to Rick Huebert, the owner of Huebert Brewing Co., which brews the beer. Huebert told local Oklahoma TV station KFOR that the appeal is in the politics of the beer. “I would say the political message is what caught their interest,” Huebert, who says he's never been a fan of the president. Huebert said he can't make the beer fast enough/Daniel Strauss, In the Know blog, The Hill. More here.

Lake City Playhouse is getting traditional this week, opening its 2012-’13 season on Friday with the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma!” Artistic Director George Green said Lake City’s small venue – it seats 170 – allows the theater’s creative team to take big, sprawling productions such as “Oklahoma!” and concentrate on the story. “We have such an intimate venue. That’s the big thing to really focus on when you come to see a show here,” Green said. “Although we have 170 seats, the way our theater is set up, it feels like you’re right up there with (the actors). “What we do here is make sure that our adaptation of the show focuses on the character work and the storylines within the musical numbers.” The large cast of 27 actors is headed by the four who play the lead couples/Carolyn Lamberson, SR.
