CNN affiliate KOCO reports on a Christian protest outside a Satanist group's event in downtown Oklahoma City (backstory here) :

In downtown Oklahoma City, Satanists held a Ritual in public at the Civic Center.

The ritual began at 8 p.m. Thursday and drew plenty of controversy.

Before making it inside where the Satanists were practicing their religion, prayers were heard outside by groups opposing the ritual.

Chiquita Carbajal said she is against the ritual.

“No place for Satan in Oklahoma,” she said.

    It's so sad that there are still those who call themselves Satanists...it really is. This article is kind of a waste of my time.

    There are as many different Satanist as there are people, but most that I have met have not or do not worship a "devil" as spoken of in the bible. Most have rejected the modern christian faith, the prosperity gospel is Christ muti level marketed and the pastor is the only one who benefits as a general rule.

    The satanic bible was written by a man who readily admits that nothing inspired him.

    The were not having a event at a church and the church goers did just what they wanted from them and that was to draw media attention. Without Christian's, Satanists would never get any publicity, thank you.

    I think the christians of oklahoma did exactly what they should have done, especially when you know what's goin on, you can't stop it everywhere, because it's around us everyday, but to know and not do nothing is like they don't care what happens to our state and families. There is so much going on now days you constantly have to pray everyday. They believe in what they stand for and live for and that is JESUS! THANK GOD WE HAVE OUR ARMY (CHRISTIANS) FOR GOD FIGHTING AND PRAYING BECAUSE WITHOUT HIM WE ARE NOTHING.

    Here is a story worth reading, confirmed by doctors present!

    But during "standstill", Pam's brain was found "de=ad" by all three clinical tests – her electroencephalogram was silent, her brain-stem response was absent, and no bl-o–o-d flowed through her brain. Interestingly, while in this state, she enco=untered the "deepest" NDE of all Atlanta Study participants.

    Some scientists theorize that NDEs are produced by brain chemistry. But, Dr. Peter Fenwick, a neuropsychiatrist and the leading authority in Britain concerning NDEs, believes that these theories fall far short of the facts. In the doc-u-mentary, "Into the Unknown: Strange But True," Dr. Fenwick describes the state of the brain during a NDE:


    This person was totally brainde-ad, so no activity existed in the brain. Yet, she saw her operation down to a new tool being used on her during surgery. Read if you dare, about the afterlife she expierienced.

    Forgive us all for we do not realize what we do......
    Love one another as we love ourselves....
    Do unto others as you would have done them done unto you...
    The Ten Commandments.....
    All sounds like good timeless advice

    God will allow anyone to do any thing they wish.
    But his glory will he not share with anyone. Anyone, including devil worshipers that deny Jesus Christ and do not follow and obey him, will feel GOD wrath and punishment.

    All I can say is that I pray that God will show the truth to those who doubt.. God is a loving God and does not wish for any to perish. If you are open to recieve, he will come. May God Bless even those who do not believe in him. Because one day hopefully they might. God Bless You all.
