Amid cheers hailing Satan, a nine-foot statue of the goat-headed Baphomet was unveiled in its final resting spot in Detroit last night. The revealing of this contentious statue, first intended to sit near a 10 commandments monument, was kept secret until the last moment after Christian protesters warned of their malicious intent to destroy the graven image depicted with onlooking child adoration. Despite the secrecy, emails to ticket holders about the date and location caused the streets of downtown Detroit to be fraught with protest in the hours leading up to what satanic supporters would call the grand event.
Appalling thousands,the recent strong satanic influence in Detroit is believed by the revolted to be directly tied to the city’s downtrodden economic strength. However, in spite of Detroit’s lacking support of what most believe to be an ill-spirited monument, the ceremonial unveiling was a success and the mammoth statue now sits in a converted industrial building along the city’s riverside. Quite possibly the most significant satanic event in history, the placement of this winged tribute to occultist beliefs is a major step toward obtaining mainstream religious freedom for supporters.
