Satanic Temple Unveils Baphomet Statue in Detroit

A Satanic organisation unveiled a controversial bronze Baphomet sculpture in Detroit just before midnight on Saturday, after trying in vain to have it installed near a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma.

Due to planned demonstrations, the group, which is opposed to Bible-themed displays on government land, kept the location of the unveiling of its nine-foot-tall monument secret until the last moment, when it emailed the information to ticket holders.

The Satanic Temple unveiled the one-ton statue at an industrial building near the Detroit River just before 11.30pm local time as supporters cheered: “Hail Satan.” Some of the hundreds in attendance rushed to pose for photos.

The statue of a winged Baphomet with a human body and a goat’s head resembled a design the group previously released. Statues of a boy and a girl stood in poses of adoration on either side.

Jex Blackmore, director of the Satanic Temple Detroit chapter, said temple members planned to transport the sculpture to Arkansas, where earlier this year the governor signed a bill authorizing a Ten Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.

The Temple had unsuccessfully applied to have the statue placed near a Ten Commandments monument installed in 2012 on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds. The Oklahoma Supreme Court recently ruled the Ten Commandments monument violates a section of the state constitution that bans the use of state property for the benefit of a religion.

Lawmakers in the socially conservative state responded with threats to seek the impeachment of the court’s justices and pledged to push for changes to the constitution.

Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, said she will keep the monument in place as the state appeals the decision.

On Saturday, the presentation of Baphomet in Detroit drew protest from local Christians. About 50 people prayed for the city and denounced the monument outside a business where the Satanic Temple previously tried to display the statue before fears of a backlash scuttled the plan.

“The last thing we need in Detroit is having a welcome home party for evil,” said the Rev Dave Bullock, a pastor at Greater St Matthew Baptist Church in Highland Park, Michigan.

    • Im sure it must. More than anyone might suspect, perhaps. Maybe tonight in our own towns now? Maybe well known people, heads of organisations private and public. Maybe ‘luminaries’?

      The heathrow article above might be a good sign. It might indicate the UK is still free to a certain degree, Satanist Zionists might not totally be in control , for these to be arrested then sent back.

      I wonder ,even though evidence is there, jews have their hands in so much and their guidebook , and their behaviours and actions its clear to see.
      I cannot see however , doesn’t feel true, that deep within the Vatican, theyre all speaking Hebrew and are secret Jews.
      I cannot speak for Freemasonry as I don’t know enough about it, im pretty sure Satanism has taken over Gnosticsm and freemasonry and im pretty sure a large element of jewry too is infiltrated into freemasonry, but is it total? Im not sure
      Is Justin Welby secretly speaking Hebrew and a jew?
      My sense says maybe not, but all these differing factions for want of a better word must all link in at the higher levels as being Satanists. This much feels clear

      Archons ive been reading about too, the extradimensional virus like invasion on earth.
      I assumed the Spiritual War was symmetrical, an equal amount of good angels etc as well as demonic entities. However something I read suggests this isn’t the case. Apparently theres God/Source, his son Jesus, and Holy Spirit, and that’s it. If ive read it right, a whole host of demonic bad Archon forces are milling around, but any Supernatural summoning of any extradimensional entities should be considered Satanic and evil it said.
      If I can find what I read ill send the link, that will explain and clarify it better than I can explain it

        Have you had that kind of Archon attack where you wake up and you feel that your brain was almost physically attacked while you were sleeping?

        Also have you felt like you were physically struck by something when there was no one else nearby like an invisible presence?

        This is the kind of thing which goes off when they are doing the spells and curses. Then they try to steal items of clothing, take your photograph, psyops…

    I’ll assume that it’s pure coincidence that Whitney Houston’s daughter dies the day after.

    Magician and satanist Aleister Crowley: “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law!“
    Satanism means Satanic ritual rape of children, even murder, human blood drinking and cannibalism, paedophelia, sodomy, incest, bestiality
    Satanists want to legalize their hidden, most heinous crimes. Worshippers of Evil keep claiming the right of religious freedom. Satanism is not a religion (beneficial to society). It’s the opposite. It’s a criminal sex cult. Genderism and the early sexualisation of children in kindergarden and primary school is part of the Satanic agenda to destroy Christian values

  3. This is what comes from having a guaranteed freedom of religion when what we all really need is a guaranteed freedom FROM religion. A religion is a region with a li(e) in it 😉

    Bestiality? I had a friend who had sex with a cat. Claude Chopper his name was. No seriously, You are free to worship or ridicule any religion you fancy. Make cartoons of the prophet Mohammed, but there are two Scottish lads in jail as we speak, under incitement to hatred laws for making Holocaust cartoons.
