* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Oklahoma Goes Satanic?

Satanists unveil proposed statue for OK state capitol

A 7-foot tall goat-headed Baphomet deserves a place on state grounds?

Quote
Oklahoma state legislators in 2009 approved the installation of a privately-funded Ten Commandments  monument. It was installed last year over the protests of the local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. The Satanic Temple wasn’t the only group to apply for a monument; People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and a Hindu group have also requested a place near the Capitol steps.

"Either way you cut it, this is a First Amendment issue," Greaves said. "Once they open that door, they can't discriminate."


I agree.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

What a time to be alive.

I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.

I think we all have to promise that if any of us ever go to Oklahoma, we have to take a picture of ourselves on Baphomet's lap and post it to The Cauldron.

Yep.  

If you allow the Nativity, then you've gotta allow Goatboy Baphomet.

I do like the idea of a plurality of religions on display.  That's true diversity.  And while I don't particularly agree with Satanism, hey, that's tolerance.

I wouldn't mind a Baphomet vs. Buddy Jesus display...

Yeah, but then I'd have to go to Oklahoma.

What?  What did I say?

This is one of the most hilarious things in the last weeks.

I so want them to put up that statue.

I would stop by on my next trip through Oklahoma just for that -- and I'm not a Satanist. I image there are lots of other people who would as well. Oklahoma should think of the tourism dollars such trips would generate before they oppose this because they unconstitutionally only want Christianity represented.
