    Shoot, even Satanists can't escape denominations.

    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.
    They might have something on the copyright bit of the statue, IF there weren't a lot of historical drawings and such of Baphomet in the exact same depiction as the statue they made and their statue itself was not copying/mocking statues of Jesus with children before him like this:

    I wonder how many black metal bands they're willing to sue for this.

    Actually nvm, black metal musicians don't have any money.

    Netflix's defense in court should be "The devil made us do it."
