Min.Satanic Monument Draws Much Opposition; Christians Say It Has No Business in Public Park

A provocative satanic monument approved for a city-run veterans' park in Minnesota has elicited strong opposition from local Christians and other groups who say the offensive object has no business in a public park, the Breitbart website reports today (July 18, 2017).

In May, the Satanic Temple received permission to place the monument -- a black cube inscribed with pentagrams with an upside-down soldier's helmet on top -- in Belle Plaine's Veterans Memorial Park, as city officials said that the application for the monument meets the criteria of city policy.

Protesters have held prayer rallies in the park, insisting that the monument not be erected.

One protester, Susie Collins, said the monument "is not the message of life and love, it is the message of death and decay."
