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.

The judges are saying "Hell No" to picking the winners for this contest because there are just too many great entries. That leaves me, my husband and our dead cat Fluffy on Sunday evening slaving away because you all are too darn creative. (Fluffy is our only pet, who is made from Chinese bunny fur but looks more alive than most cats. I thought I needed to explain this in case you all thought I was weird.)

1) Children? Remember that story where I have three heads with bat-wing ears? I'm even uglier!

2) Children! After lunch, we'll go and visit a nice old lady who lives in the woods in a house made of gingerbread! After all, its for the Children.

3) Children! Let me teach you How to Do Well by Doing Good.

4) And here I've gone to all that trouble, convincing people that I really don't exist at all.

5) That's not sulfur you're smelling; that's Hugo Chavez!

6) Oklahoma Satanists: making Nebraska football fans wherever they go!

1) Forget that whole "Suffer the children to come unto me" - from now on it's "The children that come unto me - suffer."

2) "First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama...."

(OK, I'm plagiarizing Jamie Foxx with that one, so sue me.)

3) After careful deliberation, the symbol of government bureaucracy was finally decided upon an an appropriate monument selected.

4) And you all thought that whole Book of Revelations thing was a joke....

5) I come in peace. I mean you no harm. I only want to eat your soul. You obviously aren't using it anyway!
