Satanists Settle Their Legal Battle With Netflix

It’s unclear if they got paid.

The Satanic Temple, a group headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, has reached an agreement with Netflix after they originally sued the streaming company for $50 million. Apparently, Netflix recreated the Temple’s “Baphomet” statue in four of the episodes of their new series The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. The statue has the body of a man and the head of a goat with a star on its forehead. In other words, it looks like Satan (see the photos here). The spokesman and co-founder of the Temple, Lucien Greeves (is that a fake satanic name?), referred to the show in a Tweet as “asinine Satanic Panic fiction,” showing his clear disdain for a show that misrepresents that cause of Satanism, which apparently aims for “benevolence and empathy among all people” and the rejection of “tyrannical authority” (was Lucifer rejecting God’s tyrannical authority?).

In a statement, Greeves said this of the settlement:

The Satanic Temple is pleased to announce that the lawsuit it recently filed against Warner Bros. and Netflix has been amicably settled. The unique elements of the Satanic Temple’s Baphomet with Children statue have been acknowledged in the credits of episodes which have already been filmed. The remaining terms of the settlement are subject to a confidentiality agreement.

For a broader idea of what The Satanic Temple stands for, here is their rather progressive mission statement pulled from their website:

The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will. Politically aware, Civic-minded Satanists and allies in The Satanic Temple have publicly opposed The Westboro Baptist Church, advocated on behalf of children in public school to abolish corporal punishment, applied for equal representation where religious monuments are placed on public property, provided religious exemption and legal protection against laws that unscientifically restrict women’s reproductive autonomy, exposed fraudulent harmful pseudo-scientific practitioners and claims in mental health care, and applied to hold clubs along side other religious after school clubs in schools besieged by proselytizing organizations.
