(Worthy News) - The Satanic Temple held a "Rally for the First Amendment" at the Arkansas State Capitol Thursday and brought with them a statue known as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure associated with the group.
Members say the goal of taking the statue to the state capitol is "to support the First Amendment and religious plurality," according to a news release.
The Satanic Temple is upset the Arkansas legislature approved putting a Ten Commandments monument on the Capitol grounds. Members filed a lawsuit to allow the statue of Baphomet to be put on the same grounds, after lawmakers denied "a donation from The Satanic Temple," the news release states.
