Hello Satan. Detroit welcomes America’s first public monument in honor of Satan

Yeah we get it…freedom of religion etc..but come on, a statue in Detroit for people to worship Satan. If this not the downfall of a society, and an empire gone crazy, then I am not sure what is.

This is just what Detroit needs…more of God’s wrath to rain upon it.

Via RT…

Dozens of protesters gathered in Detroit to protest the unveiling ceremony of a controversial bronze Baphomet statue by the Satanic Temple. When the one-ton goat-headed statue was finally exposed, supporters welcomed it, and cheered “Hail Satan!”

The Satanic Temple kept the location of the unveiling of the colossal monument secret until the last moment, emailing the information to ticket holders only. The group received threats that protesters would allegedly blow it up or burn it down, according to the Raw Story.

On Saturday, about a hundred people reportedly gathered across the street from Bert’s Marketplace, where the Satanic Temple had originally planned to unveil the statue. It’s a vexed issue that has driven a wedge between local residents.

“The last thing we need in Detroit is having a welcome home party for evil,” Reverend Dave Bullock, a pastor at Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church in Highland Park, Michigan told Reuters.

“This unveiling will not happen in the City of Detroit on my watch,” Bishop Corletta Vaughn of the Holy Ghost Cathedral in Detroit told the Free Press at Saturday’s protest. “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.”

“Satan has no place in this city, or any other city,” another protestor, James Bluford of Rochester Hills, added.

Photos by the Free Press feature some protesters wearing T-shirts with the caption saying “Jesus.” Martin C. Tutwiler of Oak Park reportedly said the Satanic Temple was forcing the statute on the city because “they think we’re down as a city.”

On its website, the Satanic Temple said the statue “is intended to complement and contrast the Ten Commandments monument that already resides on Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.”

Temple spokesman, Lucien Greaves, explained in a statement earlier this year that the monument would serve “as a beacon calling for compassion and empathy among all living creatures.” He added that it will also have a certain “functional purpose” – as a chair where “people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

Although the statue of a winged Baphomet was originally meant to stand alongside the Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma, the state Supreme Court there ruled earlier this month that the statue must be removed on the grounds that a government property cannot be used to show support for any religion.

The director of the Satanic Temple Detroit chapter, Jex Blackmore, said group members planned to transport the sculpture to Arkansas. In April, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson signed into law a bill instructing the state to erect a privately funded Ten Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.
