Christians have the right to wrap an American flag around a Baphomet statue’s head and set it on fire. And they should.

Although I have never heard of her, there is a columnist for the conservative newspaper The Washington Times named Cheryl Chumley, and Ms Chumley has written a column calling for Christians to join in the statue removing surge and tear down statues to Baphomet.
If you are like most people, you have never heard of Baphomet , so here it is
The first known mention of Baphomet was in a letter written in 1098 by Anselm of Ribemont describing the Siege of Antioch during the First Crusade . Anselm stated that the Turks “called loudly upon Baphomet.” Most scholars believe that the word refers to Muhammad , the founder of Islam . In 1307 Philip IV of France had every Templar in France arrested, accusing them of such heretical acts as idolatrous worship of a bearded male head called Baphomet. By the 19th century Freemasons had also been (falsely) said to worship Baphomet.
In his book Dogme et ritual de la haute magie (1861; Transcendental Magic: Its Doctrine and Ritual ), the influential French occultist Éliphas Lévi created the Baphomet that has become a recognized occult icon. The book’s frontispiece was a drawing of Baphomet imagined as a “Sabbatic Goat”—a hermaphroditic winged human figure with the head and feet of a goat that is adorned with numerous esoteric symbols. Lévi describes the meaning of each element of the drawing, which is defined by its profound and pervasive duality. British occultist Aleister Crowley also adopted Baphomet, notably in his “Gnostic Mass.” More recently, the Satanic Temple commissioned a statue of Baphomet, which was unveiled in 2015 and then moved to various places as a protest against displays of Ten Commandments monuments in public spaces.https://www.britannica.com/topic/Baphomet
You tear down a statue that honored racists, we'll tear down one that honors a sabbatic goat. (a hermaphroditic winged human figure with the head and feet of a goat that is adorned with numerous esoteric symbols.)
How many statues and monuments to Baphomet are there in America? Well Chumley identifies four, so I guess they could all be defaced in a day, if she can find a few people in Little Rock, Detroit, Oklahoma City and Springfield Illinois to do the honors.
I guess Christians just don't want to be left on the sidelines.
Who knew satanism was as big a problem in the U.S. as racism ? Cheryl Chumley's readers know.
