Oklahoma is under attack once again by a satanist organization that is seeking to remove an ordinance outlawing the distribution of literature profanely mocking Christianity. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) contacted the attorney for Edmond, Oklahoma on Tuesday to request the removal of the ordinance because the foundation contends that it is unconstitutional. The satanic FFRF was contacted by one anonymous citizen. The ordinance at issue is under the “Public Peace and Safety” section, which prohibits speech and behavior that results in a breach of the peace.
