• Satanic Temple holds public sculpture unveiling in Detroit

    A Satanic organization unveiled a controversial bronze Baphomet sculpture in Detroit just before midnight on Saturday, after trying in vain to have it installed near a 10 Commandments monument in Oklahoma.  The Satanic Temple unveiled the one-ton statue at an industrial building near the Detroit River just before 11:30 p.m. local time as supporters cheered, “Hail Satan.” Some of the hundreds in attendance rushed to pose for photos.  Jex Blackmore, director of the Satanic Temple Detroit chapter, said temple members planned to transport the sculpture to Arkansas, where earlier this year the governor signed a bill authorizing a 10 Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.  The Temple had unsuccessfully applied to have the statue placed near a 10 Commandments monument installed in 2012 on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.

  • Floyd Shivambu in papgeld drama - SundayWorld

    Morake allegedly dumped Shivambu because "he is stupid and lacks respect, leads a fake life" and "lied about breaking up with his ex-fiancee", former SABC2 weather presenter Andile Masuku when he dated her. Morake, who said the EFF Parliamentary chief whip, earns close to a R1-million a year, pleaded with the Randburg Maintenance Court on Friday to dock over R2000 from his salary because he was a dead beat dad. Shivambu's alleged failure to support the child is likely to project his party in a negative light as it was the only organisation in parliament which objected to the Maintenance Amendment Bill. The bill, which has been sent to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) for concurrence, will see maintenance dodgers blacklisted.
