The Satanic temple was planning on erecting a new Satan statue in Oklahoma. Oklahoma declined. Big Jesus fans threaten to blow the statue up, an act that would have brought the FBI hammer down if they were muslims. - Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) host The Young Turks.
"The Satanic Temple received a number of threats after announcing they’d unveil the Baphomet statue on commercial property, including threats to “burn it down” or “blow it up real good.” They’ve moved to a secret location at a ticket-only event.
