A grotesque display of unadulterated evil was erected Monday in the rotunda of the Illinois state capitol.
This demonic display features the “satanic deity” Baphomet, depicted as a swaddling babe. It was designed by Albuquerque-based horror artist Chris P. Andres, the State-Journal Register reported.
“This year’s tradition marks a greater urgency in the Baphomet’s message of harmony and reconciliation,” The Satanic Temple said in a press release.
The Diocese of Springfield in Illinois condemned the demonic display.
“Mocking the millions of Christians in the state of Illinois and billions around the world by depicting the baby Jesus this Christmas with the ‘satanic deity’ Baphomet is the very definition of evil and causing division, but that is to be expected from an organization that is in existence to troll people of faith,” said diocese spokesman Andrew Hansen.
Someone should remind Gov. Pritzker that the United States of America is one nation under God, not Lucifer.
