FYI- A pentacle does not have to be inverted to be a pentagram and is not a "satanic symbol." I mean, sure if you WANT it to be it can, but so can an upside down cross.

Most of the BS you see written online about Wicca is by goth teens and not by actual witches practicing 30+ years.

Best post in the thread. Some people just see a conspiracy anywhere.

What a wacko.

No, granted they do look like pentacles, normally lights like that, used on many, many industrial vehicles, are just cheap round lights, with five massive LEDs in them.

Then they would be Luciferian, not satanist.

I always picture Jesus as the exhausted guy at the end of the bar...
At this point he would break some bread, sip on some wine and tell this woman to shut her yap already.

"I've got more important shhh to worry about, lady"

He would then get up and walk out... All in slow motion of course... With his entire crew leaving the billiards area too.

The woman would scream, "BBUUTT TTHHEE LLIIGGHHTTSS" in a slow, gurgling voice that would make Chris Farley envious.

Jesus would just put his hand to her face and edge her away in the most epic of rejections.

**Cue "99 Problems" on the jukebox as they exit**

True, but whenever these types of religious controversies come up we see many embracing interventions from the satanic church with open arms. (Oklahoma city statue for example).

You an expert on transparent extrusion plastics huh?

Like someone else posted above - 10% of the pop are completee whack jobs. Paying them attention only encourages them.

The point with the satanic group who wants to add theirs to the ten commandments is its state property. The ten commandments are the issue. A drunk ran over and broke the statue a few months ago, barely missing running his car into the historic capital building so I guess it served its purpose, but since they'd been told it couldn't be funded by state money, a private citizen replaced the thing. But now since the state has offically accepted a display which is religious in nature and installed it on state land, the satanist absolutely deserve to be allowed to put theirs next to it. Same idea, displaying a religion with private funds on state property.

A lot of the support for the satanists is NOT from fellow believers but those who believe there should be NO religious displays on the state grounds but if there are its open to anyone and they can't say no. They aren't embrasing the satanic church, just giving them equal rights. I myself would love to see a wiccan display too, though we'd have to fight over the details. Maybe invite everyone for a monthly maintance fee put up their display be it christan or athiest or satanist or the flying frizbee but use the money to fix the captial before it falls down during the sporatic repair.

They are probably LEDs. Some people just go around looking for a reason to be pissed.
