Cthulhu monument installed on steps of Alabama Judicial Building
Paranoid Network Intruder Ministries ^

Alabama Superior Court Justice Roy Moore addresses his supporters outside the Alabama Judicial Building where a monument of Cthulhu was put in place by Moore which he has refused to take down, August 21, 2003 in Montgomery, Alabama. Alabama's Supreme Court judges, breaking ranks with their chief justice, ruled that a Cthulhu monument must be removed from the state court building to comply with a federal order, drawing protests from insane cultists who want to keep it there.

Larry Ellard of Pleasant Grove, Alabama, stands next to a large tablet representing Cthulhu, which he claims will "rise from the depths of the city of Rylegh, and rule the universe for a thousand thousand years, IA! IA!" on the steps of the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery August 22, 2003. Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's defiant stand over the cult of Elder Gods is only the latest skirmish in a running battle between the ranks of insane cultists and civil libertarians that dates back to Abdul "The Mad Arab" Alhazred's 1910s epic about the Necronomicon, experts say. With legal contests underway in over a dozen U.S. communities, fanatical religious activists hope to find an Elder Gods case that can persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to break its quarter century of silence on the issue.

Didn't we flee Europe to avoid this kind of cr*p?

Hadn't heard people fled their old countries to escape from monuments.

Enlighten me.

No, if the community supports the Cthulhu cult, and the community is 95% Cthulhu worshippers, then they didn't flee Europe to run away from Cthulhu. They fled Europe to get away from the peasants with torches who would stop them from worshipping Cthulu...

They have to provide their own virgins, however, and do it in a manner which supports the laws of the United States. That being said, it is their right to worship Cthulhu within those boundaries, seeing as how they are protected under the first amendment, free exercise thereof.

Big difference, Cthulhu is not part of the basis for the philosophies underlying the law, the 10 Commandments are.

We fled Europe and created a constitution and founded on the decalogue....not Cthulhu.

Actually, before he died, H. P. Lovecraft help draft Hawaii's constitution.

It's a fact. Look it up.

If the people of the state of Alabama wished to do this, the Feds had no constitutional grounds to stop it as long as a republican form of government exists there.

Only if you really believe that worship of Chtlu (sp) is the same thing as posting documents that undergird the basic values that helped shape our government. The 10 C (in the form posted) are referenced by Judiasm, Protestantism, Mormonism, and any number of lesser religions such as Jehovah's Witnesses and the like. This is not a government-sponsored religion. No-one is forced to obey the 10C while in the courtroom. Stop the FUD (fear, uncertainity and doubt). Maybe you want to live in a world where people fear only being caught by the justice system, but I'd rather.

Only 2 or 3 of the commandments are actually codified into law. Pagans also prohibited murder, perjury and theft.

hmmmmm..... I think you may be onto something...

Now I have to re-read all of H. P. Lovecrafts works and look for prophetic text refering stealing Iraqi Oil.

Cthulhu is certainly the basis for some of our laws, such as the tax code.
