Baphomet Statue Unveiled In Detroit
This can’t be a good sign. A monument to Baphomet was unveiled this weekend in Detroit.
About 100 people crowded together on a strip of sidewalk in Eastern Market Saturday to pray and protest the Satanic Temple’s plans to unveil a Baphomet monument in Detroit later that night.
The group gathered across the street from Bert’s Marketplace, where the Satanic Temple had originally planned to unveil the bronze, goat-headed idol. But Bert Dearing said he gave the group back its $3,000 rental fee when he learned who booked the place.
A news release billed the unveiling as the largest Satanic ceremony in history. The event was ticket-only, and the location was to be given via email to ticket holders on Saturday.
“This unveiling will not happen in the City of Detroit on my watch,” said Bishop Corletta Vaughn of the Holy Ghost Cathedral in Detroit. “I’m here to stand against this being in the City of Detroit. We will not turn over our city to Satanists. It’s a violent spirit that’s moving to the city and infiltrating that place. We will drive them out of Dodge.”
The bronze statue weighs one ton and stands nearly 9 feet tall. It has horns, hooves, wings and a beard. It had been planned for the state Capitol in Oklahoma City, until Oklahoma’s Supreme Court banned religious displays on Capitol grounds.
This is all bad. We pray that this is an isolated incidence and this isn’t an indication that more people are becoming followers of the dark side.
