A Satanic Temple has extended an invitation to the bishop “to hold hands with members of The Satanic Temple while we come together and stand before all of the religious displays at the rotunda” in the Illinois state Capitol.

Not exactly the usual invitation a bishop would receive this time of year, but that’s what’s happening in Illinois as outrage ensues over a “controversial holiday art display from the Satanic Temple that will stand alongside other religious exhibits” reports The New York Post.

The Satanic Temple installed on Monday, “the satanic figure Baphomet depicted as a baby to celebrate the holiday Sol Invictus, the State Journal-Register reported.” The Satanic Temple’s website states Sol Invictus is a “celebration of being unconquered by superstition and consistent in the pursuit of sharing knowledge.”

This is the third year the Satanic Temple will be featuring its own display in the Capitol; the piece was designed by Albuquerque horror artist Chris P. Andres. Satanic Temple’s director of campaign operations Erin Heliam said in a statement, “this year’s tradition marks a greater urgency in the Baphomet’s message of harmony and reconciliation.”

The Post writes “the Satanic Temple is less of a true religious group in the traditional sense than it is a social activist organization that is an outspoken supporter of women’s reproductive rights, the separation of church and state and several other social justice issues.”

The display has created controversy in the state’s Capitol. Springfield Bishop Thomas Paprocki said the Satanic Temple’s displays “should have no place in this Capitol or any other place.” Paprocki’s statement was given at a recent event in the rotunda when a Nativity scene was installed, sponsored by the Diocese of Springfield.
