Oklahoma City, December 19, 2015 -- Satanists plan to pour costume blood over a statue of the Virgin Mary on Christmas Eve in Oklahoma City. The public desecration received a permit from City Hall and is scheduled to take place in front of St. Joseph Old Cathedral, a historic Catholic Church located in downtown Oklahoma City.
Adam Daniels, who held a satanic Black Mass in Oklahoma last year, told The Oklahomanthat he intends to use fake blood "to add another layer of corruption to Mary, which is an emblem of the Catholic Church.”
In response, Catholics are calling mayor Mick Cornett to revoke the permit issued to the satanic group. "This public attack against the Mother of God should be called out for what it really is: religious persecution," said Tradition, Family and Property spokesman, John Ritchie. "Instead of feeding the flames of this new religious persecution, City Hall should revoke the permit immediately."
Within twenty-four hours, over 7,000 people have signed a petition, urging mayor Cornett to take wift measures. Those who wish to join the petition may do so here.
