Update – interview with Brian Werner, one of the Satanic High Priests behind the statue of Baphomet. (Ha, call it Baphometal!)
The Satanic Temple is serious about placing this statue. The group “seeks to separate Religion from Superstition by acknowledging religious belief as a metaphorical framework with which we construct a narrative context for our goals and works.
“Satan stands as the ultimate icon for the selfless revolt against tyranny, free & rational inquiry, and the responsible pursuit of happiness,” the website says.
