Detroit on Saturday became the setting for the unveiling of an 8-foot-tall, bronze, satanic monument during an event that organizers called the “largest public satanic ceremony in history.”
The location of the event was disclosed only to $25-ticket holders, whom The Satanic Temple group welcomed for “a night of chaos, noise, and debauchery.” The group also urged party goers to “dance with the Devil and experience history in the making.”
The statue, which weighs about a ton, had never before been seen in public. It features Baphomet. This goat-headed, demon-like creature with hooves, wings and a beard is portrayed sitting on a throne backed by an inverted pentagram as two children gaze upon it.
The Stannic [sic] Temple, which strongly supports the separation of church and state, had told CBS News the 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.”
The Satanic Temple originally planned to hold The Unveiling at a Detroit restaurant, but the venue’s owner canceled the event after learning more about the group’s satanic ties. Beforehand, it was planned to take place at the state capitol in Oklahoma City before the Oklahoma Supreme Court banned a statue of The Ten Commandments on capitol grounds.
