You know what I find interesting? According to Job in the Bible (and the Jewish idea of Satan), Satan exists to tempt God's people so that God can
test them. These Satanists are exposing the hypocrisy of some Christians just like Satan tries to exposes their bad side. You would think around
Satanists, they would be on their best behavior so God can see they do not fall into temptation (in this case hypocrisy).
You are mixing apples with oranges are you not? If people want to worship their own religion then this is protected under the constitution of the
United States. Then let them at least go through the guidelines of forming their own religion. Now that is not so difficult is it? Was this done?
Regardless of whether It is a lawful religious statue no one should destroy another persons property illegally. That much I do agree with.
But when you bring the Jews into this mix it is totally unfair to even mention them.
Baphomet has many meanings in many religious cults and from all over the world. But it means nothing to the Jews in the sense of being connected to
any Satan. To the orthodox Jew, Satan is not evil even though any statue of any deity is evil to their understanding. In other words any worshiping
of any deity outside of the God of Abraham is considered evil to them but then a Satan is not evil because a Satan is of the God of Abraham. To the
Jew, a Satan tempts people in the hope that the one who is tempted will overcome that temptation. An angel can never sin. It is impossible for an
angel to sin. Therefore the Jew differs from the Christian in connecting sin to a Satan. Sin is the result of the evil inclination in all people and
not through any fallen angel.
So you see how unfair it is to even mention the Jew in this fight between gentile religions. I agree that this Baptist organization should refrain
from this outward fight and tend to their own church affairs. This abomination is no more evil than the religion of Islam or the Roman Catholics or
the hundreds of other cults around this world. As long as it is within the lawful boundaries of the constitution it should be ignored and tolerated
till changed by law.
Satan worshiping and also Luciferic worshiping is laughable to the orthodox Jew simply because Lucifer is non existent and Satan is not evil. Let the
heathen roar. In time all will perish and start anew only to perish again.
