Timothy Tardibono with the Family Policy Institute of Oklahoma said a prayer celebration scheduled for Monday is no coincidence.
"What we want to do is give people an alternative that is safe, that is not chaotic,” he said.
And not limited to Catholics.
At the same time, a Black Mass ceremony will led by Devil worshiper Adam Daniels. Daniels said the events are meant to be educational.
“Part of our religion is to have our God attack other gods,” said Daniels.
Daniels said Followers of Ahriman will destroy a blood drenched statue of the Virgin Mary.
That is all followed by the consumption of a pig heart inside.
Daniels said he expects some opposition to his events.
“A lot of people can believe whatever they want,” said Daniels, “This is my religion, this is America and canon law means nothing. The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land, and since I’m following the Constitution, I don’t care what they have to say.”
Tardibono said the Christian, peaceful message Monday is a simple one.
“Light always wins out over darkness, love always beats hate and If you want to participate in light and love then come out,” he said.
Daniels said he organized security at his event provided by the Oklahoma City Police Department.
