INTERNATIONAL: Satanic Temple holds public sculpture unveiling in Detroit

SATREUTERS – A Satanic organization unveiled a controversial bronze Baphomet sculpture in Detroit just before midnight on Saturday, after trying in vain to have it installed near a 10 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 9-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 11:30 p.m. 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 10 Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.

  1. Dude seriously? As for me and my family we worship The alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, the father son and holy spirit. So where did u come from? Weigh evolution against creation. If you evolved from apes where did the ape come from. How did this earth come into existence . it's really sad that men are still trapped in racism and unbelief. But God does not discriminate.


  2. Say whatever comes out of those mouths who are against satan but,god himself created the devil. lucifer at one time was an angel of god.So,The devil has its place on earth and in real life.Christians should tell us as it is.


  3. Don't worry about this beautiful sculpture, there is no God and no devil. I can't believe that in the 21st century people are still fooled by the white mans God and devil. St. Lucians are suckers for that God lie.


    • I don't know what "lie" can change criminals into good men of socieity and fools to wise people, but, if you know, tell me
