Satanists Unveil Bizarre Statue At Arkansas’ State Capitol

Satan worshipers and metal heads rejoice!

There was quite the stir in Little Rock, Arkansas on Thursday after members of the Satanic Temple revealed a new statue, featuring Baphomet with two children praising him at his side, in front of the State Capitol building.

KATV reports that the unveiling took place during a "Rally for the First Amendment" event put on by the Temple in an effort to protest the recent installation of a Ten Commandments monument on capital grounds, citing religious pluralism.

"The event is intended to be an inclusive gathering where The Satanic Temple will be celebrating pluralism along with Christian and secular speakers," said Lucien Greaves, co-founder of the Temple.

There was a group of church members marching in opposition to the rally, but by the look of things, they were dwarfed by the crowd of people swarming around the tribute to the dark lord. So it looks like Satan wins once again.

The unsettling statue sends a much more potent message than the letter of protest the group had sent legislators back in 2017, which had gone completely ignored. We imagine it’ll be much harder to turn a blind eye to an eight-foot demon at the edge of their workplace, and already, officials are beginning to react.

“It will be a very cold day in hell before an offensive statue will be forced upon us to be permanently erected on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol,” wrote Senator Jason Rapert in a statement, making bold assertion wrapped in a cute pun.

Come on, Arkansas, just be cool for once.

President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
