The Satanic Temple brought a statue of Baphomet to the Arkansas Capitol on Thursday to protest a law that allows a monument representing the Ten Commandments in front of the state building.
Satan is part of the Christian faith, and by constitutional law, has the same rights of freedom of religion and be next to the 10 Commandments. Some people say that it is mythology Mevales. they only do it to protest the 10 Commandments and separate the religion from the government, as it is written in the constitutional laws.
Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peacefully to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Hundreds of protesters gathered around the Arkansas State Capitol Thursday as the Satanic Temple wheeled in an 8.5-foot Baphomet statue on the lawn in protest of a 2015 law that allows religious monuments on state ground.
