With the possibility of a new monument in the popular conversation, a new character on social media has OKC all atwitter. Lord Baphomet (that’s Satan, for the uninitiated) created a Twitter account shortly after he caught wind that a petition circulating to erect a monument of him on the grounds of the state Capitol had gained some momentum.

LETTERS

God is always timely


Letters to the Editor

Joe "Sarge" Nelson
Monumental offense (News; Brittany Pickering; August 28, 2013; Oklahoma Gazette) … That’s a false description of challenging God’s word. I am neither a pastor, priest, monk, Jewish or any of these things, but I am a man who has probably broken every law God has placed up this world. And it has, without a doubt, one way or another, caused me to see me as I am and was, and change did come.
