The Satanic Temple’s Baphomet Statue

Excellent work from our minions at the BBC: Decoding the Symbols on Satan’s Statue.

A controversial statue unveiled by the Satanic Temple at a secret ceremony in Detroit has attracted protests. But who is the goat-headed figure? And what do the elements of the statue symbolise?

The answers in the article come directly from our friends at The Satanic Temple, makers of a beautiful Baphomet statue originally meant for Oklahoma, but which may end up in Arkansas before all is said and done.

Of course, the media keeps calling it a statue of Satan himself, which we find endlessly amusing. Just as the voice of G-d would render your puny minds to jelly, so would the actual visage of Our Dark Lord. But do go on, WXYZ-Detroit, about the recent unveiling.

A rather balanced report, wouldn’t you say? I’d share who in power is on our side there, but you know as well as we do: everyone in power is on our side.
