Quote:Veterans Memorial Park in tiny Belle Plaine, Minn., is packed with remembrances for the town’s men and women in uniform. Soon, it will get one more: A solemn black cube holding an upturned helmet, its sides adorned with upside-down pentagrams.

The Satanic Temple announced Friday that it had received approval to install the monument, which is in production. Within a couple of months, it is expected to take its place alongside a flag-lined walkway, a marble plaque and a retired UH-1H Iroquois “Huey” helicopter positioned as if it is hovering above the ground.

The approval of the monument brings a new twist to a long-running battle that began last summer, when someone put up a metal silhouette of an infantryman kneeling before a cross. A resident objected, calling it a religious symbol that violates the principle of the separation of church and state.

After months of acrimony, the city decided to make part of the park a “public forum,” open to virtually any group that wants to honor the town’s veterans. The Satanic Temple took them up on it.

It is not the first such effort from the Satanic Temple, a provocative organization that often pushes the boundaries on free speech and religious liberties to prove a point about religion in public spaces; last year, it started its “After School Satan” clubs as a way of challenging Christian evangelical groups that sponsor after-school religious programming. But this is the first time that the group has succeeded in having a monument placed on public land, said Lucien Greaves, spokesman for the organization, which is based in Salem, Mass.

I am deeply offended, and this is another obvious sign evil is everywhere just waiting to rear it's ugly head.

Resist tyranny every way you can.

The vast majority of Satanists don't believe in Satan as a real entity. They see him as more of a symbol.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Why do all religions use the cube in one form or another.

Fold a cube out get a cross.
The throne of Brahma the Creator God of Hinduism sits on a CUBE.
The Kabbah in Mecca the center of Muslim faith is a CUBE…
It also appears in the myths of Buddhism, Egypt and Greece etc.

Pretend Christians might do it. "Real" Christians will be too afraid of it.
