Our first caption contest of 2014 begins with a little hell-raising.

The photo depicts a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan proposed by a New York based group called The Satanic Temple. The proposal is their response to a Ten Commandments monument placed in the Oklahoma Capitol in 2012.

According to CBS-NY local news:

The group formally submitted its application to a panel that oversees the Capitol grounds, including an artist’s rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that’s often used as a symbol of the occult. In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.

The Satanic Temple is arguing that the privately funded Ten Commandments monument in the Capitol building opens the door for their statue. You can expect to hear more about this “hot” issue as the year progresses.

The photo caption, “Rendering of Satan statue proposed by The Satanic Temple” is what appeared in CBS News piece. However, I am confident that PJ Media readers are capable of writing the most hellish captions allowed on a family news site tweaking that caption ever so slightly.

So are you up for the task?  Do I hear panting and chomping at the bit?

But before you begin there is only one contest guideline that MUST be obeyed:

Thou shall defend the Lord our God and Keep His Commandments.

Now, go have some fun tormenting Baphomet the goat and the smiling children.
