When in doubt, always blame the devil. This man is a lunatic. Check it out.

Though he told authorities that the devil made him do it, Satanists disapproved, after a man allegedly shattered a stone copy of the Ten Commandments last week.

The man is accused of running his car on Friday into a controversial 6-foot-tall granite tablet of the biblical edicts erected near Oklahoma City’s Capitol, CNN affiliate KFOR reported.

He then left his car standing near the monument, which — as photos showed — was smashed asunder through the second commandment: “Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain.”

He walked into the Federal Building, where he made threats against President Obama and the federal government, KFOR reported, citing U.S. Secret Service agents.

The man told the agents that the devil made him wreck the religious monument, which was placed at the Capitol in late 2012.

He also said he was mentally ill and had stopped taking his medication. He has been detained at a mental health facility for evaluation.
