Keep the satanic Baphomet out of the Arkansas Capitol!
The Satanists are at it again.
After convincing Oklahoma to remove the Ten Commandments from Oklahoma Capitol grounds, they have moved on to a new victim: the Arkansas Capitol.
The Satanic Temple, a self-declared atheistic organization, spent over $100,000 to build a statue of Baphomet that stands at over 8 1/2 feet tall.
They are now using this statue to convince states to remove the Ten Commandments from public grounds.
They argue that if the Ten Commandments are allowed on public grounds, then the likeness of Satan must also be allowed. This reasoning is utter folly.
The Ten Commandments hold a special place in our national history and cultural heritage. On a national level, the United States Supreme Court has held that such displays of the Ten Commandments on government property are constitutional, since they serve both a religious and a secular purpose.
In 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court observed that displaying the Ten Commandments on government property promotes civic virtue and communicates to visitors that the State sought to reflect moral principles.
The statue of the satanic Baphomet serves no such purpose. Indeed, it does quite the opposite by promoting evil and subverting civic virtue.
We must tell Arkansas not to bow to the demands of The Satanic Temple and to protect the display of the Ten Commandments, recognizing its special place in our national history and cultural heritage.
The Satanic Temple is currently petitioning Arkansas to display their horrific statue on Capitol grounds. We must show that an even larger and more vocal majority stands AGAINST the display of this statue.
Sign this petition now!
Don’t allow Baphomet statue on Capitol grounds
