You lost me at “sit in the lap of Satan for inspiration.” Have people really become so engulfed in the Equality for all movement that we are allowing a symbol of everything most hold as the highest form of evil to sit along side what few areas still allow the 10 commandments monuments to stand?
(RT) The Satanic Temple plans to unveil a large statue dedicated to the devil in the city of Detroit later this month, despite intensified protests by church leaders and residents that have caused the original venue to back out of the event.
Originally slated to be unveiled on July 25 at Bert’s Warehouse in Detroit before the venue canceled its involvement, the 9-foot bronze statue of Baphomet, a goatlike idol with a man’s body, horns and wings originally associated with the Knights Templar. The statue reportedly weighs one ton and is made of bronze.
On its website, the Satanic Temple said the state “is intended to complement and contrast the Ten Commandments monument that already resides on Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.”
“The statue will serve as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures. The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation,” temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement earlier this year.
Although the statue was originally meant to stand alongside the 10 Commandments monument in Oklahoma, the state Supreme Court there recently ruled that the monument must be removed because government property cannot be used to show support for any religion. Now without a home for the statue, the Satanic Temple is considering applying for space near a 10 Commandments monument at the Arkansas State Capitol. Until then, it’s planning a special unveiling in Detroit, home to the organization’s first chapter.
The number of ritualistic murders and torturing of victims all over the world, in ways you would not want to imagine is something most people can’t grasp. Satanism and other branches of the craft are in a revival and explosion in the number of followers. Regardless of whether you are a religious person or not, these are facts that can not be denied.
With that being said, why are we watching as this group puts an image like this in a public place? Again it’s all in the name of equality, I guess. The constitution was put in place for freedoms to be granted to American citizens and so many “minorities” are using it to, piece by piece, dismantle what our forefathers died for. God Bless.
