ARKANSAS (KFSM) — A religious group in Arkansas has officially adopted a stretch of highway to keep the state beautiful and litter free.
Satanic Arkansas plans to host quarterly cleanup events along the stretch of highway located towards Roland, AR. on Highway 300 in Central Arkansas.
Danny Straessle from ArDOT says they only restrict groups from the adopt a highway program if they use profanity or engage in illegal activities.
"As long as the organization holds up their end of the agreement to pick up litter at least four times a year, ArDOT will provide them a sign," Straessle said.
The organization says they want people to promote religious freedom in the state of Arkansas.
"We are a collective of like-minded Satanists who work to improve our community in Arkansas while we work to educate people about modern atheistic satanism and promote religious freedom in our state," said an organization official.
Satanic Arkansas is an autonomous group of satanists and is not affiliated with the Satanic Temple.
