The executive producer of Don Imus’ radio show, Bernard McGuirk, went on a Fox Business News show last week and said that the satanists who proposed a monument on the grounds of the Oklahoma statehouse next to a Ten Commandments monument should all be murdered.
The Satanic Temple has issued a press release demanding that Fox Business News publicly apologize for the remarks made by one of its commentators.
On January 9, 2014, one of the participants in Fox Business New’s “Mensa Meeting,” Bernard McGuirk, said that members of the Satanic Temple who want to erect a monument in Oklahoma City should be executed.
“They should be able to put the statue up, and then they should be shot right next to it, and then we take it down,” McGuirk said.
Lawyers for the Satanic Temple say that “[s]uch incitement to violence is reckless and possibly criminal. Advocacy of the murder of American citizens based on their religious beliefs is intolerable and sickening. For [Fox Business] to disseminate such a position as part of a televised debate on a national network strikes at the heart of this country’s founding principles and potentially places the Temple’s members in imminent danger.”
