Detroit: Satanic Temple to unveil statue ‘largest’ ceremony in history

The Satanic Temple unveiled an 8-foot-tall bronze statue of a goat-headed Devil in Detroit, calling the event the “largest public satanic ceremony in history,” WWJ-TV reported.

Tickets were $25 to the “private event” promised to be “a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery… Come dance with the Devil and experience history in the making.”

The bronze Baphomet monument weighs a ton and “is not only an unparalleled artistic triumph, but stands as a testament to plurality and the power of collective action.”

“The statue, which backed by an inverted pentagram and flanked by statues of two young children gazing up at the creature, shows Satan with horns, hooves, wings and a beard,” notes CBS Detroit.

The New York-based Satanic group says this event “will serve as a call-to-arms from which we’ll kick off our largest fight to date in the name of individual rights to free exercise against self-serving theocrats.”

Detroit apparently has a robust Satanic Temple congregation, with more than 200 registered members, the station noted.

“The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people,” the group’s website states.

The statue will now be stored out of public view until the Temple can find it a permanent home. The group hopes to display it at the Arkansas State Capitol, next to a monument of the Ten Commandments.
