The Satanic Temple Unveils a Massive Statue of Baphomet in Detroit



The Satanic Temple Unveils a Massive Statue of Baphomet in Detroit

The unveiling of the 9-feet tall and 1.5 ton statue of Baphomet took place in Detroit and was dubbed “largest satanic event in History”.

On July 26th, the Satanic Temple unveiled a massive bronze statue of Baphomet sitting on a throne, complete with two children look up to him in admiration. The unveiling took place in an industrial building near Detroit River after attempts to have it installed near a Ten Commandments monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol have failed.

The caduceus on Baphomet’s lap is meant to represent an erect phallus. Combined with the two children looking up to him, this statue is a true nod to the occult elite’s favorite obsessions.

The unveiling was preceded by an event which gathered several hundred guests. Before entering the premises, guests were required to sign a contract “selling their soul to the Devil” – which was also a way of keeping protestors at bay. Attendees celebrated under red lights cheering “Hail Satan,” as bands and DJs performed on a stage beneath a big, red inverted cross. Officials of The Satanic Temple delivered speeches alongside a pair of shirtless men who held candles on both sides of the bronze statue.

Guest danced and cheered under an inverted cross.

Tickets to the event were sold from $25 to $75 and proceeds went to support abortion rights an important cause championed by the Temple. Its official website states:

The Satanic Temple (TST) supports personal choice in the context of abortion and, as part of a multi-faceted Women’s Rights campaign, TST is offering religious exemptions from arbitrary, insulting, and outright harmful anti-abortion legislation that has been steadily encroaching across the nation.

Without going into the pro-choice / pro-life debate, I can confirm you one thing : The true satanists of this world are  bent on child sacrifice. Practitioners of Black Magick (as represented by the inverted pentagram behind Baphomet) have always attributed to the blood sacrifice of children the greatest possible potency to accomplish rituals. While this might sound completely evil and crazy to regular people, these sacrifice HAVE happened and STILL happen, sometimes in the highest elite circles on Earth. So, while there’s a pseudo-political-liberal spin behind the actions of the Satanic Temple, the choice of this specific cause echoes the darkest of Satanic rituals.

One thing I found completely aberrant about this event is the mental gymnastics pulled by mass media to depict it  as one big positive thing that is not about Satan. They say it is about political issues … although the event was organized by the “Satanic” Temple … and that the statue was of Satan … and that people were yelling “hail Satan”. For example, this article entitled Why a Satanic statue isn’t really about the devil does its best to make the event about everything except what it is truly about.

The modern Satanic Temple has nothing in common with the  horror-movie conception of devil worshipers, aside from a penchant for black clothes and inverted crosses. The temple — not associated with the Church of Satan founded in the 1960s by Anton LaVey — views Satan not as an evil figure, but one who dared question authority. They see the human body as inviolable, and prize rationality and skepticism.

It’s on those grounds that the Satanic Temple has questioned corporal punishment in schools (the temple offers adherents who attend school in such districts a form letter explaining corporal punishment violates their sincerely held religious beliefs), and are suing to overturn mandatory waiting periods for women seeking abortions. Here in Michigan, the temple installed a “snaketivity” display next to a Nativity scene at the state Capitol in Lansing last Christmas.

The unveiling and literal worshiping of a gigantic Baphomet Statue is therefore disguised as an event about “rationality” and touted a necessary step towards a more progressive society. Even if the concept of Satan is deeply theistic, the event was praised by atheists groups everywhere.

In short, the unveiling of this 9-foot tall Baphomet statue is a perfect example of deceiving the masses into accepting and welcoming the cult of the occult elite. Even if media spins the issue and pukes out paragraphs over paragraphs of pseudo-political diatribes to rationalize what is happening, the symbols do not lie. A statue of Baphomet was unveiled.

Baphomet has been the idol of secret societies for over a thousand years – since the time of the Knight Templars. Today’s secret societies descend from the Knight Templar and literally rule the world. They are behind the biggest atrocities humanity has ever committed, from unjust wars to underground child abuse rings to blood sacrifices to MKULTRA to things we don’t even know about. The occult elite is a product of multi-generational Satanic families and the philosophy they embrace allows them delve into their sadistic obsessions with any repercussions.

So, no, this is not about “rationality” and women’s rights. It is about unveiling a statue of Baphomet and making it acceptable to the masses.

…and this is just the beginning of the end…they are no longer hiding in the back rooms and cellars…they are in full view and totally unperturbed by the nuisance of any opposition…things have changed…for the worse…

Israel R

So much ignorance, shame on you.

Jah Real

Ahh the Cabal grows more bold. More plain sight than hiding these days. As evil grows the righteous must stand firm. Be not deceived by trivial issues of the world. The spiritual battle is raging. Constant prayer and thanksgiving are the sword and shield.


So I suppose then there should be no debate about the 10 commandments being placed and remaining in courthouses across the country nor should the image of Jesus be offensive….because those are "political" movements. The 10 commandments discourages murder, lying, honoring your parents, not stealing, being faithful to your spouse……..theft is a political issue as it can be linked to amount of people struggling with economy cause there's no jobs. Murder is a big issue and really people get murdered during wars civilians etc…… The future of tomorrow depends on today's kids and today's youth struggle. Yes the 10 commandments are also political as well….so if this satanic garbage can be acceptable so should 10 commandments. As far as atheists supporting Satanism…….a lot start atheist and turn toward satanism. Neither wants to believe in a God because neither wants to be told what's right, what's wrong, what's a sin and what's not. Both have same ideology….."Do what thou willst" The only difference is perhaps a lot of atheists are "in-the closet satanic" but it's more politically correct and acceptable to be atheist. Atheist have no loyalty they just believe what they want and therefore can support whatever religion they want…… Read more »


I can't believe those idiots signed contracts giving their souls to Satan!! That's not free will, that's a cult!
No wonder the world's in a mess with rubbish like this.
The children gazing 'adoringly' at Satan is probably more disturbing than anything else.


I have zero fear of any demons, gods and ghosts or politicians and bankers. What I fear are weak-minded followers with a strong conviction that they are following the correct path. Those are the ones who have an actual impact upon reality.


Let me make sure I understand you:
Are you saying that you have a strong conviction and
that your above statement and belief are on the correct path?


That's still free will.They're willing to worship satan and if that means signing a contract then so be it. These people have chosen to worship the devil like fools.


Exactly, the enemy targets children. He knows if he can get them young then he has a greater chance of destroying them. Egh! He is such a fraud! That’s why we must pray for our children constantly, pleading the blood of Christ over them constantly. The Bible says pray without ceasing. That scripture couldn’t be more important, we are in a spiritual battle and the only way to be equipped and ready is by praying, worshipping, and reading and living by The Word of God! But the great thing is the battle is already won!!!! we just have to be steadfast and endure

The trippiest part of this story for me is that the unveiling happened on Obama's 6th-year / 6th-month / 6th-day in office. (2378 days from 1/20/09 – 7/26/15). Massive 666 tribute indeed.

er mer gersh

Only america would unveil a satanic statue. This is horrible!


Notice the human body with a horned goat's head, which is commonplace in Satanism, which is a mockery of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. The goat (or ram) head represents the Devil, the god of this world (II Corinthians 4:4). The two fingers in the air is a Masonic Handsign. Notice the 5-pointed Pentagram on his forehead. The two snakes show the duality between good and evil. The snake is the servant of Satan, as taught in Freemasonry. The goat's head is commonly revered in rock music. Baphomet phallus is Hermes' Caduceus – a rod intertwined with two serpents. This ancient symbol is has been representing Hermetism for centuries. The Caduceus esoterically represents the activation of chakras, from the base of the spine to the pineal gland, using serpentine power (hence, the serpents) or Astral Light. The wings are that of Lucifer, the fallen archangel. The pentagram or pentacle is probably the best known and used of all occult symbols and is considered to be the most potent means of conjuring benevolent spirits. The inverted pentagram, with the point of the star is downward, is used to conjure up the powers of evil. As the circle is believed to… Read more »


Hideous. I might just roll my eyes at it on first glance, if not for the kids depicted being drawn in by him and then it becomes more distressing. Even if you don't believe in God, Jesus, or Satan, this display is wicked and perverse. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The statue itself is dumb and holds no power, but the reality is that truly twisted minds want the youth to be immersed in darkness as early and as fully as possible. Sad.


This reminds me of what violater from the move Spawn said : "How come God hogs all the good followers and we're stuck with the retards"!


Man, that party was fun. Many of you fools are confusing The Church of Satan with The Satanic Temple.
Part of the reason TST was given its current name is because religious nut cases like you would freak out. And it worked.


purely arrogance of the people behind this BTW the Living God cannot be mock
well it aint a surprise cause ever since before Christ baphomet worship was practiced by some ancient people,
until now it still exist which shows that the world is still being deceive by this goat stones and manmade dogma.

Deutoronomy 4:28
And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
Leviticus 26:1
You shall not make idols for yourselves or erect an image or pillar, and you shall not set up a figured stone in your land to bow down to it, for I am the LORD your God.


You want to talk technical is Christians can have their 10 commandments on a public building why not Satanists exactly. Does not better if you agree with that religion or not who seems to be a satire of religion to begin with. Freedom of Religion remember. We are a nation separated regarding religion and state. If one group does it then why not another.


Honestly, how can people be so stupid not to see right through this charade?

John Richardson

They are not 'seeing through it' nor are they 'being taken in.'

They are laughing and giggling.
They are frivolous, if they take it all in jest, then it cannot really be serious can it?
If it's not really serious, then they can come to no harm.
After all, nothing really matters, lighten up!

It's not their fault….nothing is…ever…just a few cells…what's your problem?

John Richardson

I've though for some time that the contemporary western world is threatened most by frivolity.

Adults refuse to grow up or take any responsibility for the damage they do, to themselves or others; retreating into frivolity and pretend 'concerns' for anything at all that is far removed and irrelevant.

Grinning and joking all the way to Hell….with a side order of self satisfaction.
Some generations have been lost to greed, power and false prophets.
This one?
Lost to frivolity, the terminal craving to 'belong' and a deep seated need to never ever grow up.



It leads to a lost generation and their children will be even more lost since they will grow up with no guidance. That's how you make a dumbed down mass that is totally manipuable. And the smat ones? Most of them don't want to have children because they're witnessing that the world is going downhill. #fuckedupworld


I love how there's loads of people simpin' and supporting this statue like its been beneficial to their lives. So glad I can see what is hidden in plain sight. I bet there's going to be plenty of Satanic rituals in front of this statue/idol.


What creeps me out is the inverted crosses and symbolism of these Satan worshippers
and how these same images are in the music videos, etc done by celebrities

Even just recently that Justin Bieber video goes along with the Satanic worship

So we are seeing it not only in the news but its being promoted by celebrities in their music videos
as well as clothing lines producing t-shirts, etc with such on it

Its a whole Satanic culture rising up

More than anything the Satanic culture is anti-Christian and against God

Its not like they are doing their own symbols, they are doing reverted crosses and anti-God imagery
so its not an independent religion
its an anti-Christian and anti-God religion

The people behind this are against God and the Bible
and they have the most powerful people and celebrities in their pockets doing their bidding for them
for money, fame and power

Luckily there are people who see through this
but these are the people being targeted now
not only politically but religiously

We have now entered the time in USA where politicial and religious persecution has taken over our culture, our government and ultimately our country


I thought most American cities are now bankrupt?
State of Pennsylvania with its counties and cities sure does act like it. Schools are hurting… Heck, every budget seems to be hurting.
Could be worse here, we could have a huge pedophile statue with children by its p---s.

Like I said before the people of Detroit DO NOT support this satanic bs so for all of you people leave judgemental, classist, racist and derogatory remarks about Detroit you need to evaluate yourselves and why you feel the need to judge a whole city based on the actions of a few sick people. There are good and bad people everywhere your city is no better or worse than ours.


The rise of the circular star is upon all of us. Bow.


What on earth are you talking about????????????


True, bad and good people everywhere. .., but you don't see nasty sick 9' statues in other cities – do you?
(I have been hearing a lot of bad coming from Detroit for years, despite the statue obviously, is it that dangerous and dirty out there? I've never seen it.)


Just go on instagram.
Sometimes I go on there to view this lady called Deelishis who was the winner of a reality show called The Flavor Of love
I believe she was born and raised in Detroit and she seems to be doing quite well
She appears to live in the Suburbs and in the pics, she always have her windows open and the streets look very safe and spotless
So maybe we are being misinformed somewhat by the media

done that

To both Ann and Richie: Detroit is like every other large city. There's good and bad if you know the right places to look.


I agree, there are good and bad people in Detroit. The problem is as always, corruption i both government and industry.


What is wrong with people who choose to do this and what does it say about our society that this happening in plain sight and no one seems to care? Signing a contract to the devil, partying next to an inverted cross, idols made to evil in public spaces, selling aborted baby parts for profit, and a total lack of respect for God. Our society is becoming a cesspool of filth. Scary times in deed. Keep your family and loved ones close.


Probably 20-something hipsters who think it's "cool" because they have been bombarded with luciferian imagery via the media all of their lives. It's become very trendy to wear all-seeing eyes and the like. Take for example the ice bucket challenges that have happened over the past few years. Those are very much contributing to the Satanic agenda while the public thinks they are helping a charity. We need to be diligent, do our own research and educate others in hopes that people will wake up and do the same.


The Truth will shine through it all. That's what we're seeing unfold; there will come a time when no one will be able to deny it.


Well this isn't surprising to me because the word of God said these kind of things would take place during the last days. All you're seeing is people saying good is evil and evil is good. The confusion is real and the devil loves confusion.


I don't claim to know whether Satan exists. However I do wonder about people who call themselves Satanists, then state that the religion has nothing to do with the classical definition of Satan, but is about rationalism. Then why not call it rationalism instead of Satanism? Aligning yourself publicly with what the adherents of several major religions worldwide consider to be the highest principle of evil but then claiming that you are persecuted or misunderstood just seems arrogant, misleading and self defeating to me.


This is the best comment so far


Thank you. It just seems to me that for folks who say they value rationalism, they aren't exhibiting very much of it. Common sense says that redefining Satanism is going to be a hard sell, because it's so culturally loaded, and if it's not about Satan, then why take on that baggage? And if it's about rationalism, then why introduce the woo-woo to it by using symbols like a goat's head that plainly evoke irrational feelings? You can't have it both ways.

If nothing else, then this should put a definitive end to the argument that the Baphomet symbol is not Satanic, because if it isn't, then why is the Temple of Satan using it?


That's the ruse. They can't plant the seed of their true intention unless they go all out with these symbols. It's too important to them.

If anyone questions it, they'll sugarcoat it, as they have. What can/will anyone do about it? Will the public care enough to create enough of a stink? Maybe. But while thats happening, oh wait, look over there, another kid shooting innocent people at a mall, or another senseless act committed by a police officer. Forgotten.


I don't understand that either. If Satanism is truly just existentialism and hedonism, with the purest of motives, why is there a need to align oneself with a religious symbol at all? Is it simply to be cheeky? Seems a silly reason to choose an icon.

Also, if "true" Satanists are taught to RESPECT the BOUNDARIES of OTHERS, then why do so many of them get away with literally MURDER, ABUSE, and manipulation? Are those morally decrepit considered "bad" Satanists by the "nice" ones?

This is why I shun most if not all religions, Satanism included. Too much bullsh** for me.

Between Lines

Fleurdamour, I've wondered that for years. Thank you for your comment. This is my take (in order): 1) GREAT diversion campaign. 2) Straight up LYING is part of their "religion/philosophy." (If it conforms to what you really want, DO IT.) 3) Those fully initiated know full well satan is not the abstraction they tell the stupid people (that includes just about everyone else). They are correct that the full "mythos"of satan is a Judeo-Christian concept. So part of the diversion is if you mock Christianity, you can automatically relagate what they say about their "enemy" as a bunch of bogey man fairytales, and inject a more scientific definition for the modern age. What's hilarious is how after all their redefining of satan/ism to be a concept of following the left hand path, rationalism taken to its ultimate form, etc, they end up with one of the most distilled rationales of why the "Judeo-Christian" satan did exactly what he did. Almost as if Aleister or Anton was snickering behind their hands saying "only those crazy frequent bible readers are going to pick up on this little slight of hand, and NO BODY listens to them anymore anyways." Or maybe they didn't… Read more »
