Give the Devil His Due

I said that this presentation at SkeptOKon was "in honor of the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu", an Ahrimanic (Satanic) church who's devotees actually believe in a literal devil. However, they're involved in one or two court cases of interest to secularists like myself. At the time of this presentation, I didn't realize I was actually praising the efforts of two separate groups. So there need be some clarification. The devil worshippers successfully sued for the right to hold their black mass in the Oklahoma City Civic Center. They also backed The Satanic Temple, (a non-theist group with no affiliation) in a separate suit over placement of a monument to the Ten Commandments. The Satanic Temple is trying to erect a statue of Baphomet right next to it. Who would have guessed that two different Satanic organizations would have challenged the state in the same courthouse at the same time?
