The Satanic Temple is installing a “Baby Baphomet” statue among the Illinois Capitol Rotunda holiday display. The statue will be installed on December 20th at 1 pm.
The Satanic Temple recently made headlines for seeking a court declaration to allow abortions for their Texas members, claiming that the laws violate their “religious freedom” to perform “abortion rituals.”
In a press release about the Baphomet statue, the group said that it is in celebration of the Satanic holiday Sol Invictus, which, like Christmas, takes place on the 25th of December. According to their website, the day is a “celebration of being unconquered by superstition and consistent in the pursuit and sharing of knowledge.” “The new display, created by artist Chris P. Andres, depicts the Satanic deity Baphomet as a swaddling babe,” the Satanic Temple said in their statement.
