Devil Satanists want a Baphomet statue installed at the state capitol

Sounds like it's from The Onion, but it's not.
The Satanists do have a point though. But at the same time, where does it stop?

It stops before it starts.

Yes. Although it should keep the pigeons off the steps and whatever benches are in the area.

In case it's not obvious, it bears noting that the Satanic Temple, like most Satanists, are not so much an evil-worshiping religion as a rebellion against traditional religion. From their website:
Quote:
It is the position of The Satanic Temple that religion can, and should, be divorced from superstition. As such, we do not promote a belief in a personal Satan. To embrace the name Satan is to embrace rational inquiry removed from supernaturalism and archaic tradition-based superstitions. The Satanist should actively work to hone critical thinking and exercise reasonable agnosticism in all things....We embrace blasphemy as a legitimate expression of personal independence from counter-productive traditional norms.
