    Satanists sue Netflix over being portrayed as evil

    Satanists are suing Netflix over ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’

    Netflix has found itself in the crosshairs of a Satanist group over one of its latest original series. The Satanic Temple (TST) is suing the streaming service and Warner Bros. for $150 million for alleged copyright infringement, trademark violation and injury to business reputation ($50 million for each count) over The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The religious organization claims the show features a statue depicting two children looking up at a goat-headed deity called Baphomet, and that it bears close similarities to its own tribute to Baphomet.
    ...
    The temple alleges that the "defendants misappropriated the TST Baphomet [with] Children in ways implying that the monument stands for evil

    I think using the very embodiment of evil, Satan, as their namesake kinda tanks their case.

    They seem desperate for attention. Is attendance down, or something?

    Maybe they need their own safe space.

    Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to judge. As they say, the devil's in the details.

    Maybe they just don't like being demonized.

    They originally wanted to put that statue in front of a courthouse as a protest to the 10 commandments. That fizzled out.

    I just find it hilarious that a fake religion that calls itself the Church of Satan is upset about being portrayed as evil. Maybe they should have chosen a less evil namesake, like the Grinch?

    The Church of Satan is not the group suing about their copyright on the statue design; it's The Satanic Temple, which is separate and different, which is suing.

    With that qualification, I share your hilarity.

    I note that the founder/spokesman, when asked whether The Satanic Temple was a genuine religion or just satire, replied with a rhetorical question, why it couldn't be both a genuine religion and satirical. Looks like The Satanic Temple is a load of comedians.

    You mean, even the Devil experiences "church splits"?
