SPECIAL SATURDAY POST
Satanists have brought a bronze statue of Baphomet, a winged-goat creature sitting on a throne flanked by two young children, to the Arkansas state capitol.
They want the bronze depiction of the satanic deity to sit along side the Ten Commandments monument, which sits on the Capitol grounds.
“If you’re going to have one religious monument up then it should be open to others, and if you don’t agree with that then let’s just not have any at all,” said Satanic Arkansas co-founder Ivy Forrester told the press.
Arkansas state law prohibits the placement of statues on state grounds without legislative sponsorship.
Last year the Ten Commandments monument was heavily damaged by a protestor driving his car into the statue.
