Detroit will now be producing the Christine automobile 

Detroit ; The Satanic Temple unveils a satanic statue.
Detroit Is a city with it's own troubles. Seems like the last thing they need is to raise an effigy to evil. I guess some are just a glutton for punishment. Don't just stand there those pretty lights have a freight train attached to them.

The link states that the 9 foot tall 2,000 pound bronze statue cost $100,000.
The Satanic Temple accepted donations for it to made and claims to have about 20,000 members.


Why Detroit Has the Largest Satanist Temple Chapter in the US
"Greaves said there are 20 chapters across the country with about 20,000 members as a whole."

The Satanic Temple is a fairly new organization but I can't find the date when it was founded.
The first I heard of it was in 2013 when they made a scene in Florida over religious freedom in schools.

Rick Scott Praised By 'Satanists' At Mock Rally

A group of self-proclaimed "satanists" staged a mock rally in support of Florida Gov. Rick Scott Friday for signing a bill that permits school districts to allow students to read inspirational messages of their choosing at assemblies and sporting events.

The group, called The Satanic Temple, hung a sign proclaiming "Hail Satan! Hail Rick Scott!" while rallying on the steps of the Florida capitol building.

Lucien Greaves, the spokesman for the group, insisted earlier that the rally was "not a hoax," but the Miami Herald discovered that Greaves is currently working on a filmcalled "The Satanic Temple."

Who is this Lucien Greaves and how did he get 20,000 followers in just two years who donated that much money?


Unmasking Lucien Greaves, Leader of the Satanic Temple
July 30, 2013

I have sought to promote alternative thought for more than 25 years as a publisher, promoter, gallery owner, and, as my mother-in-law once said, "a flim-flam man." During this time, I have opened the door to free thinkers and pure crazies alike. Sometimes they are welcome guests; other times, not so much.

Lucien Greaves of the Satanic Temple, who first showed up at my door over a decade ago, would fall into the former category. He was a young man, too smart for his own good. He wanted a copy of a book I had republished called Might Is Right. It was a 100-year-old tome, long forgotten by most, with the exception of Anton LaVey, who'd found it in a bookstore as a young man and used it as the basis for The Satanic Bible. I asked Anton to write an introduction, and he jumped at the opportunity to introduce the book to the world again. By way of thanks Anton invited me to his home and made me a high priest in the Church of Satan. He also allowed my wife and I to conduct the final interview with himjust months before his death in 1996.

The release of this new version of Might Is Right became a phenomenon within the underground, and that is what brought the future leader of the Satanic Temple to my door. Only his name wasn't Lucien Greaves at the time, it was Doug Mesner. (This isn’t the first time Doug has been connected with the Temple, though it is the first time he has publicly admitted his involvement.)
-----

Not long after that Doug was accepted to Harvard University. He used to call me, shocked that his professors were taking him to lunch and inviting him to meet with luminaries like Richard Dawkins. Doug's studies at Harvard focused on neuroscience, and he began delving deeply—and sometimes dangerously, I felt—into the world of false memory related to ritual abuse and alien abduction, even exposing professional psychologists as culprits and forcing them to recant, retire, and even run.

Doug Mesner became an active participant in the Satanic Temple to further his work and philosophy, and below is the exclusive interview I recently conducted with him.

The Satanic Temple does not have the support of The Church of Satan.
They released this statement on their web page:

CONJURING CONFUSION

A self-proclaimed Satanist group has recently gotten media attention, though one may wonder if it is a political activist prank rather than a legitimate philosophical organization. Mounting public stunts geared to be as obnoxious as those perpetrated by certain Christian activist groups suggests that they are looking to leverage contemporary social media and blog culture so as to grab people’s attention. It’s working. But is it provoking thought or simply making Satanism look as ridiculous as the theist belief systems that are being mocked?

Their web site lifts many concepts from the literature of the Church of Satan, but one has to wonder whether the folks behind this actually understand and embrace our principles? One of their outings includes ritually dealing with spirits in an afterlife, which is absolutely not part of the the Church of Satan’s philosophy.

In addition to that hideous statue they released a children's coloring book:

Who is funding all this? How did they get so much attention in such a short amount of time?
