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.One woman outside began screaming at the Christians to kill each other and rape children.
“God doesn't exist,” she said.Oklahoma City police provided extra security throughout the event. Police said they were able to keep the groups from clashing.
Sean Brock didn’t know what to expect Thursday night when he went to check out the controversial scene.
"We just came to check it out. We don't really agree or disagree with either side,” Brock said.James Hale, the leader of the Church of the Four Crown Princes, said his event is a "blasphemy ritual" and a parody of a Catholic exorcism.
Many Oklahoma City residents said they have never seen a Satanic ritual or an exorcism, except in the movies."It happens every day all over the land, but not at the Civic Center,” said Carbajal.
