A baphomet statue that was revealed yesterday at a recently opened Satanic Temple in Detroit Michigan, has upset and offended some local Catholics. Allegedly, around two hundred to two hundred and fifty catholic's attended a protest mass at St. Joseph Church. The Satanic Temple of Detroit was going to reveal this baphomet statue, at a Detroit location that only individuals that purchased tickets would become notified of.
This eight and one half foot statue is a satanic symbol to some. Other people have claimed baphomet is an old school deity that The Knights Templar's and later Freemasons worshiped and perhaps still worship. Jex Blackmore, a white woman, whose real name is Adrea Potti, is founder of this Satanic Temple of Detroit.
Originally, she and her organization wanted this baphomet statue erected at Oklahoma State Capitol grounds next to a concrete ten commandments version. This never transpired as Oklahoma state legislature passed legislation banning religious statues on capitol grounds including that concrete version of ten commandments. Satanic Temple of Detroit now wants this baphomet statue placed next to another concrete version of ten commandments at the Arkansas state capitol grounds.
This baphomet allegedly cost one hundred thousand fake federal reserve notes. This bronze statue weighs more than two thousand pounds. Supposedly, this occult symbol was supposed to get revealed at a local restaurant until threats of arson were passed out.
That is when a decision was made to hold this revealing event in "secret" instead. White girl Jex Blackmore claims she and two hundred members do not worship Satan. No catholic's, pagan's, satanist's, Freemason's, Knights Templar's, theist's, non-theist's, etc. were hurt.
