The Satanic Temple Unveils a Massive Statue of Baphomet in Detroit*
The unveiling of the 9-feet tall and 1.5 ton statue of Baphomet took place in Detroit and was dubbed “largest satanic event in History”.
On July 26th, the Satanic Temple unveiled a massive bronze statue of Baphomet sitting on a throne, complete with two children look up to him in admiration. The unveiling took place in an industrial building near Detroit River after attempts to have it installed near a Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol have failed.
The unveiling was preceded by an event which gathered several hundred guests. Before entering the premises, guests were required to sign a contract “selling their soul to the Devil” – which was also a way of keeping protestors at bay. Attendees celebrated under red lights cheering “Hail Satan,” as bands and DJs performed on a stage beneath a big, red inverted cross. Officials of The Satanic Temple delivered speeches alongside a pair of shirtless men who held candles on both sides of the bronze statue.
Tickets to the event were sold from $25 to $75 and proceeds went to support abortion rights an important cause championed by the Temple. Its official website states:
The Satanic Temple (TST) supports personal choice in the context of abortion and, as part of a multi-faceted Women’s Rights campaign, TST is offering religious exemptions from arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation that has been steadily encroaching across the nation.
Without going into the pro-choice / pro-life debate, I can confirm you one thing : The true satanists of this world are bent on child sacrifice. Practitioners of Black Magick (as represented by the inverted pentagram behind Baphomet) have always attributed to the blood sacrifice of children the greatest possible potency to accomplish rituals. While this might sound completely evil and crazy to regular people, these sacrifice HAVE happened and STILL happen, sometimes in the highest elite circles on Earth. So, while there’s a pseudo-political-liberal spin behind the actions of the Satanic Temple, the choice of this specific cause echoes the darkest of Satanic rituals.
One thing I found completely aberrant about this event is the mental gymnastics pulled by mass media to depict it as one big positive thing that is not about Satan. They say it is about political issues … although the event was organized by the “Satanic” Temple … and that the statue was of Satan … and that people were yelling “hail Satan”. For example, this article entitled Why a Satanic statue isn’t really about the devil does its best to make the event about everything except what it is truly about.
The modern Satanic Temple has nothing in common with the horror-movie conception of devil worshipers, aside from a penchant for black clothes and inverted crosses. The temple — not associated with the Church of Satan founded in the 1960s by Anton LaVey — views Satan not as an evil figure, but one who dared question authority. They see the human body as inviolable, and prize rationality and scepticism.
It’s on those grounds that the Satanic Temple has questioned corporal punishment in schools (the temple offers adherents who attend school in such districts a form letter explaining corporal punishment violates their sincerely held religious beliefs), and are suing to overturn mandatory waiting periods for women seeking abortions. Here in Michigan, the temple installed a “snaketivity” display next to a Nativity scene at the state Capitol in Lansing last Christmas.
The unveiling and literal worshiping of a gigantic Baphomet Statue is therefore disguised as an event about “rationality” and touted a necessary step towards a more progressive society. Even if the concept of Satan is deeply theistic, the event was praised by atheists groups everywhere.
In short, the unveiling of this 9-foot tall Baphomet statue is a perfect example of deceiving the masses into accepting and welcoming the cult of the occult elite. Even if media spins the issue and pukes out paragraphs over paragraphs of pseudo-political diatribes to rationalize what is happening, the symbols do not lie. A statue of Baphomet was unveiled.
Baphomet has been the idol of secret societies for over a thousand years – since the time of the Knight Templars. Today’s secret societies descend from the Knight Templar and literally rule the world. They are behind the biggest atrocities humanity has ever committed, from unjust wars to underground child abuse rings to blood sacrifices to MKULTRA to things we don’t even know about. The occult elite is a product of multi-generational Satanic families and the philosophy they embrace allows them delve into their sadistic obsessions with any repercussions.
So, no, this is not about “rationality” and women’s rights. It is about unveiling a statue of Baphomet and making it acceptable to the masses.
