Sign of the Times: Satan’s Statue Rises Proudly Near Detroit River

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 Ten 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 Ten Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.

    then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many
    false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be
    increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end
    will be saved. Math. 24; 10-13 Jesus is the way the truth and the light Turn to him for the end is fast approaching

  • Ask yourself: Would such an event had ever occurred in 17th-century Colonial America whose governments of, by, and for God were established upon Yahweh’s unchanging moral law, beginning with the First Commandment?

    Of Course not!

    Consequently, there has to be a defining moment in America’s history when her Christian character and biblical course were formally altered. That point was in 1787 when the late 18th-century Enlightenment and Masonic founders replaced the First Commandment (found intact in some of the 17th-century Christian Colonial governments) for the First Amendment’s First Commandment-violating Free Exercise Clause.

    It’s one thing to allow for individual choice to believe or not to believe, something impossible to legislative to begin with. It’s another matter altogether for government to enable polytheism (including Satan worship) to flourish and proliferate through the nation.

      Another stock response! You’ve used this one all over the net.

      You sound so shocked that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t instantly shut down all evil and unrighteousness.

      News Flash, Weiland. The Constitution gave us the framework for self government with protections such as liberty and freedom. It is our job to stamp out evil and do it within the boundaries the Lord has set.

      Your solution, Ted R. Weiland, is to blame the U.S. Constitution, but a better solution is to amend the U.S. Constitution to satisfy your complaints. That way we can still keep the protections and freedoms we have enjoyed for generations.

      Problem solved, you can stop taking your blood pressure meds.

    should have erected it across the street from 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue…

      If lucifer had a son would look like_____. You fill in the blank.

    • MrInterpid

      If you meant across from the white house, you meant 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, not 1400. I think we all knew what you were trying to say though.

      • Kent2012

        phillipinsky suggested that I would be proud to be in Mrs Sarah Palin’s company..he is absolutely correct…tired of the communists, socialists, liar, perverts, aliens, and idiots that the african pretender has placed in “high” office…oh and the dweebs that support him as well..

    • Phillip

      You not alone in thinking that the WH is at 1400 Penn Ave… Sarah Palin did too. I’m not sure I’d be proud of being in that company!

      • Kent2012

        certainly and even with your handicap of being an avowed socialist the “gist” of the message got through the layer of manure surrounding both of your brain cells…

        • Phillip

          First of all, what makes you think I am an “”avowed socialist”? Second, what does that even have to do with the topic at hand? And, third, ad hominem attacks are the recourse of bullies, not people who wish to engage in serious intellectual arguments.

  • Kathy Langford

    Here’s a stock response for ya. We can separate church and state but we absolutely cannot separate morals and state. If we have this in control of our children it will be to our own demise.

    Don’t forget, lucifer fell from heaven like lightning. He is going to a bottomless pit to join mohamhead in the caliphate down under.

    This blog should be called ‘Restoring Fear’, not ‘Restoring Liberty’.

    The reason those folks are erecting that “Satanic” statue is to remind everyone that the First Amendment prohibits ANY state-sponsored religion. That is, ALL religions (including the lack there of) must be treated equally. Thus, if the governor of Arkansas wants to erect a monument/statue/sign supporting one religion (i.e., posting the Ten Commandments is Judeo-Christian), then that opens the door to erecting monuments/statues/signs of ALL religions. This is why ALL national cemeteries allow for displays of ALL religions…including the inverted 5-pointed star that ‘Satanists’ use, as well as Crosses, Stars of David, Crescents, etc., etc.

    This is Civics101 material, not rocket science. Get with it folks, please!
