The Satanic Temple unveiled a statue of the occult idol Baphomet outside the Arkansas State Capitol building on Thursday to protest the Ten Commandments monument already on capitol grounds.

The rally was attended by about 150 Satanists, Christians, atheists and curious onlookers, all of whom were peaceful apart from one protestor who was escorted away by police after interrupting a Christian speaker.

It was a spectacle designed to highlight First Amendment values, event organizers said.

“If you’re going to have one religious monument up then it should be open to others, and if you don’t agree with that then let's just not have any at all,” said Satanic Arkansas co-founder Ivy Forrester, who helped organize the rally.
