Catholic Mass Held to Protest Detroit Satan Statue’s Debut

DETROIT (AP) — Several hundred people have attended a Mass at a Detroit Catholic church to protest an 8 1/2-foot-tall bronze statue of Satan that hundreds of people also lined up to see.

Satanic Temple had said it would unveil the statue Saturday at a Detroit location that only people with tickets would know. Hundreds lined up Saturday evening to get the tickets as Christian protesters rallied nearby.

Earlier Saturday, The Detroit News says 200-250 people attended Mass at St. Joseph Church in a protest against the Satanic event.

The statue had been planned for the state Capitol in Oklahoma City until Oklahoma’s Supreme Court banned all religious displays on Capitol grounds.

The Satanic Temple now says it wants to erect it outside Arkansas’ statehouse, where a Ten Commandments monument also is planned.
