Controversial religious monuments at State Capitol battle it out on Twitter
OKLAHOMA CITY – While many Oklahomans are up in arms about a pair of controversial monuments at the Oklahoma State Capitol, a few Twitter users are having a bit of fun with the situation on the social site.
An account under the name “Lord Baphomet” was created on Twitter after the Satanic Temple, a New York-based organization, announced its plans to build a monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
Organizers say the monument should stand next to the monument of the Ten Commandments, which also has its own fake Twitter account.
While supporters and critics of the monuments are battling it out during meetings, the monuments are now taking to Twitter.
At one point, “Lord Baphomet’s” account was suspended by the social networking site.
While on Twitter, it came up with a few suggestions for the proposed monument.
The Satanic Temple sent its application to State Capitol’s Preservation Committee for approval.
However, many lawmakers say they do not expect the proposal to pass through the committee.
