It is not a religious monument, it is a political statement as explained by the applicants. There will have to be issues resolved about freedom of expression and suitability of the venue for that expression. As a political statement, and not a religious expression it may be restricted to areas set aside for demonstrations.In a controversial decision, the Oklahoma government authorized a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. The Satanic Temple has now submitted an application to place a seven-foot statue of Satan (depicted as goat-headed, with wings and horns) on the Capitol grounds. The applicants explain that the monument is intended to be a historical marker celebrating the scapegoats, marginalized and demonized minorities, and a symbol of religious freedom.
Who thinks both monuments should be permitted, and why? Who thinks neither should be permitted? Who thinks one should be allowed, and the other not, and why?
The Ten Commandments are moral codes already ingrained in our culture and adapted even in secular humanism, so is not necessarily religious, per se. You do claim morality can be had without religion.
They should have gone the public art route.
