-Minnesota: Town Approves Monument to Satan?

The city council of a small town in Minnesota has approved the installation of a monument to Satan in its veterans park. Here’s the story from CBS Local:

The monument going up for The Satanic Temple — which features an upturned helmet atop a black cube — will soon be at the site of the Veterans Memorial Park in Belle Plaine.

It is being built by a group of Satanists out of Massachusetts, and it will be the first Satanic monument on public property in United States history.

The city is allowing the monument to be built after a religious freedom group threatened to sue over another statue, which features a soldier praying over a grave marked with a cross.

Response: Actually the ‘group of Satanists’ are really atheists trying to prove a point and further their cause of removing all vestiges of Christianity and religion out of the public square and off of public properties all across America.

The same activist atheist strategy has created the public school ‘Satan clubs.’  Their hope is to present a horrifying alternative that will get city and school administrators to outlaw all expressions of religion.

Atheist organizations started implementing similar tactics a number of years ago when they insisted that atheist signs, scenes, and displays needed to be allowed on public land or in government buildings wherever religious monuments and Christmas displays or nativities were allowed.

The ‘Satan’ strategy is meant to be ‘offensive’ and to cause a backlash. Again the real game plan is to get rid of all ‘offensive’ religious displays or reference of any kind on public property. If atheists are successful in this campaign around the country their next battle will be against ‘offensive’ religious symbols that can be seen in public even if it is on private land.

Already many cities are regulating the size of crosses that can be seen even on church properties.  Also, in the last several years we have written a number posts about atheists complaining about prominent crosses on private lands. So this is not really a stretch. Atheists are already working behind the scenes in many cities and government jurisdictions to regulate religious displays even on church and private school properties through zoning and building regulations.               *Top

    The current state of the law is that if a public entity that allows any group to
    (a) meet after school on school premises, or
    (b) erect a monument/display in a city park

    Then that public entity must allow ALL comers to do so. The atheists have simply decided to present schools and other public entities with the alternative of either letting organizations that are loathsome participate, or banning all such after school clubs from meeting (or all such displays or monuments on public parks from being erected).

    Also, note that the goal here is to prevent other people from allowing their children to attend after-school Bible studies. Atheist parents don’t have to send their children to the after school Bible club, but are actively seeking to prevent other parents from having the option to do so.

    Finally, if the Satanist gambit does not work, I anticipate even more “out of bounds’ organizations asking to erect monuments or meet after school. Is the Pedophile Club coming to a school near you?
