Satanic Temple Looking to Build Statue of Baphomet at Oklahoma State Capitol

Rendering of the proposed statue

The Satanic Temple, a New York-based organization, unveiled designs for a seven foot-tall Baphomet statue to be placed at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The statue features Baphomet sitting on a throne adorned with an inverted pentagram flanked by two smiling children. (Maybe I should point out that the Caduceus rising from Baphomet’s lap also represents an erect phallus, which makes the whole children thing quite inappropriate).

According to Temple spokesman:

“The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond. The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation.”

The Satanic Temple stated that it has raised the necessary funds for the erection of the statue and it is now looking for approval from Oklahoma legislature.

In all honesty, I do not believe that this statue will ever be approved, mainly because officials would not want to deal with the public outcry. I also do not believe that the Satanic Temple expects its design to be approved neither. It is probably a publicity stunt and a way of protesting the placement of a privately-funded monument of the 10 Commandments in 2012 on State Capitol grounds.

If one looks closer at this monument of the Ten Commandments, one can understand why it was approved and why it is standing at the State Capitol today.

The Commandments are topped by the All-Seeing Eye inside a triangle, symbol of the occult elite.

Odd fact: The monument contains two glaring misspellings.

In any case, Baphomet is the main figure representing the beliefs of the occult elite and has been for centuries. I do not doubt that, behind closed doors, powerful people would love to see this monument placed at the State Capitol. While a statue ofBaphomet sitting next to children with a symbolic erection might appear to be a horrible aberration to most, it is probably the most honest representation of what the occult elite truly stands for.

Why do Satanists (and atheists) expend so much time, energy and money trying to debunk something that they believe does not exist?
I don't believe in elves, Zeus, zombies, the Tooth Fairy, or Peter Pan, so I wouldn't spend one second of my time and certainly not one cent of my money, trying to convince the world that these creatures aren't real.
If God doesn't exist, why do Satanists (and certain groups of atheists) waste so much time and money fighting something that they view as mere myth?

Some comments here are more creepy and distracted than the articles …

Those so called ten commandments are not the ones of the Bible. Those are the Roman Catholic Ten commandments which are different than the ones found in Exodus 20:1-17. The Roman Catholic Church would "think to change times and law." Dan.7:25. And she did just that by removing the second commandment which partially states "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them." You can see why they would remove this as they worship statues and their churches are riddled with them. Furthermore, the fourth commandment which has to do with remembering to observe the Sabbath day has been drastically altered. The Bible fourth commandment is the longest one with having 94 words. It is clearly stated that the Sabbath is the 7th day of the week (Saturday) and not the first day of the week (Sunday). It goes on to state that we are not to work on that day but to rest with God and that it is a holy… Read more »

Sunday is the day of our resurrected lord. It is the day the christians gathered and worshipped. Jesus being the main focus… replaced the old laws. It became love thy enemy instead of an eye for an eye etc.

The Jewish Christians continued to observe the sabbath but not the Gentile Christians… See also circumcision and food restrictions. This is no conspiracy as you make it out to be.

Your hatred for all things catholic is laughable since basically your beliefs are that of a splinter group.

The original source of your belief comes from the very church you berate.

This is the time Christians should band together not further divide. Stop blaming everything bad that happens under the sun on the church and open your eyes to whats really going on.

"Your hatred for all things catholic is laughable since basically your beliefs are that of a splinter group.

Such simple truths, it amazes me how this goes over their heads.

Rebel

The origina source of my belif is the HOLY BIBLE!!!!!!! I do wat d bible says not wat d pope nd the RCC says……….The catholic church is a cult honey.it is part of the illuminati believe it or not…..the bible CLEARLY states that we shouldn't worship images yet they made crosses nd rosarys nd pray to mary,nd teach that unless you confess to a prist,ur sins won't be forgiven and other crap…..they go against most preachings of d bible…….they ar cult…………

SarahSue62

I sincerely mean this with all due respect, but you`re clearly very WRONG, Rebel…. If you really attempted to understand what it is that the Catholic Church teaches and what its doctrines for the past 2,000 years (given by Jesus Himself), you would CLEARLY `get it` and be living the words and teachings of the Messiah, Jesus Christ!!! NOTHING the Catholic Church believes in (Church doctrines) is against Jesus` teachings or what is God`s will for all humanity, and the fact that Jesus Himself clearly states that He is building His Church on the foundation of St Peter as its head (meaning its leader…the Pope) and that His Church`s teachings are infallable (protected AGAINST teaching errors and the underminings of evil by the Holy Spirit) should give you great pause in that YOU and others who spout off similar ignorant untruths are professing blasphemous words against God`s own directives for humanity… I respectfully suggest you consistently pray for enlightenment from the Holy Spirit and then start your path to this true understanding by reading any book written by the great theologian Scott Hahn. He once was a strict Protestant, very anti-Catholic in his thinking UNTIL he discovered for himself the… Read more »

Honey,if you had said go to dis book of d bible and read this particular chapter and verse so you can see where God says "I have a mother,her name is mary,draw close to her in other 4 u 2 receive my grace and also pray to me through her,I would GLADLY listen….. Also,if you can tell me where God in the bible changes his mind and says "ok,you guys can make a cross of my son dying 4 ur sins nd pray to it…oh and also,u will only be forgiven only if u confess ur sins to ur priest….I'll listen You can't say you believe in God nd you talk about him to people and blatantly go against wat he asked you to do….am sorry and I say this wit love and respect,bt I think its you who needs to pray for God to open ur eyes and reveal the true nature of d catholic church to you……..God doesn't HAVE a mother……God teaches us how to go directly to him….you have your belifs and I have mine…..mine is that the catholic church is a cult,the pope is part of the elite and all those people planning and preparing for… Read more »

Woah, woman.. take your chill pill.
Catholics are a "branch" of the christians…we all bark at the same tree 😉

Taking the bible LITERALLY makes you sound like a nutjob.

Jesus freak

"Taking the bible literally makes you a nut job" huh? How can u say you're even apart of a faith then…

"Catholicism is part of the same branch" umm no it's really not what did Jesus say? "Who is my mother or brother? Those who do the will of God." Here's something else jesus says this too in revelations "you have this in your favor you hate the nicolatians as do I" or something like that . You might wana look into the nicolatians lol

Finally Catholicism is the new babylon mother Mary is the moon goddess (notice how she's always portrayed standing on a moon with serpents) and catholic Jesus is Apollo.

Study the fruits of the spirit and flesh then analyze Catholicism.

Don't be deceived people many false spirits are out in the end times, it's no coincidence that lightning hit the Vatican twice before the new pope. Kinda reminds me of certain scriptures about a certain fallen angel and lightning. Now who could that be.

Also the pope is claiming you dnt need Jesus to be saved to figure anti Christ.

Define Mania

The sabbath was for the jews. The new testament makes numerous references to the apostles gathering the 1st day of the week to worship. The fact that honoring the sabbath is never referenced after Pentecost is further confirmation that the new law meant Sunday worship for ALL people and that God no longer viewed us in terms of Jew and Gentile.

muriel

Er yes the Sabbath is referenced numerous times after pentecost.

Acts 13:14, 27, 42, 44
"" 15:21
"" 16:13
"" 17:2
"" 18:4
Hebrews 4:9
not to mention the law preached about by Paul. The feasts etc werr fulfilled and done away with but not the Commandments they are eternal read Psalm 119 for that and also Revelation talks of the Ark of the Covenant whoch contained them and still do. It is an eternal Law and the 4th is the middle most important one.

RideorDie4Jesus

Actually Muriel, Great post, I surely gave it my thumbs-up..except for one thing u r incorrect about, respectfully. That is, that along with ALL true Christians, both Jew & gentile , STILL being required by God to keep our weekly SATURDAY Sabbath.. God also wants us to start learning about, then actually attending, aka KEEPING, the seven Holy Feasts. A big one is the FEAST OF TABERNACLES. My Church attends said Feast every year. I will also inform all who read this who r truly sincere about finding the Real Truths found in your own Bible..I did alot of research before finding what I KNOW to be one of God's TRUE, GENUINE Churches. NOT any, like the RCC, who blend Christianity with outright idolatry and PAGANISM. & again do your research ppl..The RC church was indeed responsible for having the audacity to change Almighty God's 7th-Day Sabbath Law..to Sunday, to suit their own purposes. Also research 'Constantine'..a roman emperor. I did the research, sent various emails to various pastors & churches, made phone calls.Your efforts WILL pay off for anyone who TRULY feels they r being called by The Lord. He WILL lead u to the RIGHT Church for u..if… Read more »

AWESOME POST, Natalie.
SIMPLY AWESOME.
Don't listen

muriel

Actually is there a thus sayeth the Lord God in reference to the change of His commandment written in STONE??? Not that I know of. There is no reference in scripture to the aspostles worshipping on the 1st day as they would have on the Sabbath. I break bread ie eat with my family everyday and pray over my meal, which day is the Sabbath? They were merely gathering together to talk about God as in a prayer meeting not the Sabbath day. Paul preached to gentiles on the Sabbath day in the synagogue and went back the following week Acts 13:42. James talks of the royal law, 10 commandments written on stone by Gods own hand, and that to break ONE is to break them ALL. To quote from the Catholic churches own material about the changes to the word of God should push you to check it out yourself, the fact she calls herself the Mother church tells you who she is, Revelation 17:5 says it all. And she has done a pretty damn good job persuading people like you, Define Media and Kaye that she is Gods friend when in fact she is His enemy. Rebel you… Read more »

I agree with you but you know many will be chosen and few will enter. some people choose not to "see" or "hear" because that means having to change, to give death to their sins. and some really are just unaware of reality.

It's ironic that I see the Jewish entertainers wearing rosaries all the time. I was stunned and then realized the Catholic Church was running the show behind the scenes. That's horrible!!!!!Apr

Spiritual Eyes

Yes, we are truly living in the end times so we should not think it strange when we see and hear different atrocities, tragedies, extreme weather, Illuminati, the craziness and sheer immorality of the entertainment industry and the world at large. When we see and hear of such things we must look up…heavenward for we know that the 2nd Coming of Christ could be any day, at any moment. I'll show you a mystery, we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed in a twinkling of an eye. The trumpet shall sound, and the dead in Christ shall rise, and those who are alive and remain are going to meet Him in the sky! Be ready, pray without ceasing, be spiritually aware for we know not what hour the Master will arrive. Be ready!

Axe Man

The synagogue of satan (judaism) controls our lives! They use the judaic perverted roman catholic church to brainwash dumb Christians into accepting idolatry (anti-Christianity). Revelation 2:9! The judaic hexagram is the mark of the beast. It represents 666. Do not be fooled, this is not the " star of david" but rather the star of satan. It is a satanic talisman. The children of satan control every facet of our lives. From usurious money creation and lending to the entertainment industry and organised religion. All designed to enslave us physically, mentally and most importantly spiritually. Do some research and you will come to the same conclusion.

1000 THUMBS UP!…Little known facts. This I've know since I was young, fortunate to have grown up with Sabbath observance in my household and the knowledge of this piece of history (RCC changing the Sabbath to SUNday)…it helped to be able to defend my faith to the ignorant. Thank you for summing it up for the readers of this sight, as it seems most people do not know about this/choose to overlook the Sabbath and its meaning all together. Most People are unaware that all Christians who choose to ignore Saturday as the Sabbath and worship on Sunday instead are basically bowing to the Pope and the RCC even if they are not Catholic. Because the RCC takes FULL CREDIT for it.

i called the stae cap building in OK. they said its still in the process of consideration. how do u confirm this stuff

D'bearo

I tried to read all the posts but I may have missed some. Nobody I read has said anything about the difference between a monument representing a list of rules that our laws are based on and a monument representing a deity or demon or whatever. It's not a nativity scene or replica of the Pieta or a statue of Jesus vs Baphomet. It's a list of rules that gives some historical reference to what our civilization began with. Just curious what the various opinions on that might be.

steve

Can someone show me where the bible describes Satan as baphomet. No you can't it describes him as a man. Read isaiah. Fools will believe anything. I bet you all are afraid of the boogeyman as well.

steve

Really? You people define the world very narrowly. Not everyone is a Christian nor does everyone believe in your devil.

i don't like to say this but did you know that the catholic religion its also control by the free-masons, Really the pope and all in the vatican use hats with figure of a fish or a reptile you look out at the white hats that they use with sharp-pointed ends and of course the illuminati (aka) free masons control almost everything they are 1% that control the world its not breaking news

TelluluSnape

If they are going to keep the ten commandments up there, then yes I hope this statue gets put up. I hope the Hindu's get private funds and put there gods up, and Muslims, and Buddhists, fair is fair right. See that is why there is separation of church and state. People try to find loopholes for the gov to support only one religion and good on the Satanist for finding away to say 'hey, if they get to put up the commandments then we should be allowed to put up this statue.' I hope all religious people of all religions do this and get the funds to do this. Then maybe you'll see why it would be better if separation of CHURCH and STATE were respected.

SeparateChurchNstate

I don't support this statue being placed on public property just as I don't support the installation of any religious symbols on public property. If you are going to allow Christian symbols then you need to allow all other religions the same right. This statue makes the problem. I'm no satanist but I believe they have just as much right to freedom of religion as any other. Christians love to force their religion on everyone. Religion has no place in our government. Anyone that believes in freedom should be able to see this.

You shouldn't limit God to he… and I don't know if God said anything that comes from the bible. If we are talking about the being that is our own consciousness itself, how could we possibly limit the creator to a he? God is male and female…. hes all and one… the moment we try to think of God as anything, we limit and fallback onto limitation of who God really is, and that is not describable by words… we have an idea of what all these images represent…. all mythological and religious text put together the whole microcosm of human experience… everything that people are capable of are in those books. Maybe we should take a step back from this absolutism that people seem to have when dealing with the likes of the mystery of creation itself.. The only way for manifestation is the creation of two… Once we have two,,, creation can take place… so who prays for satan? How must we grow, if we have nothing to pressure us into things. Creation is the name of the game. We have been blessed to create and imagine. duality is still one. the 1 is the 10. The tree… Read more »

Rodney

Hypocrisy much? It seems the separation of church and state is perfectly acceptable so long as the only ones erecting religious propaganda at government buildings are christians. NONE of this superstitious BS should be anywhere near a tax-payer funded establishment. Religion is personal – keep it that way.

Thank you for saying what is only logical and fair… geeze the christo-paranoid nutjobs are everywhere here…

TxY

I used to come on this site all the time and then I realized how it flashes just as many (if not MORE) of these images than any media/site/etc. I don't understand the hatred people have, not as many people are "sheeple" as some of you call it. If you truly have so much faith and respect for others you wouldn't have to belittle opinions or talk about how dumb everyone else is. I'm not saying I disbelieve any of it or believe it. Just because people disagree with others being satanists doesn't mean we all have the right to tell them what they can and can't do, that makes us just as guilty. If Satan is such a great master of manipulating people, we could say religion period is his best work. Just a thought, and honestly.. leave you're immature, judgmental remarks to yourself, or your verses, or your etc…etc…etc… because you will never force your belief on me.

BluBoy

But yet you took the time and effort and to come on this website and scan through all the comments and state……. "because you will never force your belief on me"…..Hahaha Bye Troll.

This Statue just confirms the Elite's so called worship of the Horned "God". The Knights Templars used to worship Baphomet/Goat.

I particularly enjoyed reading "Sunshine Mama's" posts, very interesting and they stood out to me.

Funny when you hear about "Freedom of Religion"
The founders of our country did not mean freedom of operation for any group of any faith when they spoke of religious freedom; what they meant was freedom for Christians to practice any reasonable form of Christian faith. The word “religion” then meant what we mean by “denomination” today. We must not as a nation endorse Islam or Satanism or Buddhism or any other non-Christian religion today because they are systems antithetical to the culture, freedoms, and laws of America. There are Buddhist, Muslim, and Atheist countries that people of those faiths can live in if they like that faith, but many from these other faiths have moved to the USA because they want to enjoy the blessings that God has lavished upon our country for developing a nation according to Christian principles. As soon as those Christian principles are abandoned, we will be impoverished like all the other fallen empires of history. Let the non-Christians howl about our bigotry, but America was founded to be (and should remain) pro-Christian, denominationally-neutral, but not religiously-neutral.

COMALite J

That is simply not true. Thomas Jefferson stated outright in writing in his Autobiography and elsewhere, regarding the Virginia Statutes for Religious Freedom which he personally drafted and which formed the basis for the later First Amendment, that some in the Virginia legislature had sought to insert “Jesus Christ” into it to make it mean what you think it means, but that that proposed insertion was rejected by the great majority. Here are his exact words: The bill for establishing religious freedom, the principles of which had, to a certain degree, been enacted before, I had drawn in all the latitude of reason and right. It still met with opposition; but, with some mutilations in the preamble, it was finally passed; and a singular proposition proved that its protection of opinion was meant to be universal. Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed, by inserting the word [sic] “Jesus Christ,” so that it should read, “a departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;” the insertion was rejected by a great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend,… Read more »
