Locals were shocked when the Republican Governor of Iowa allowed a Satanic holiday display in the Capitol building.
The display featured an elaborate statue of Baphomet, an ancient pagan god, along with the Satanic symbol pentagram.
The governor refused to remove the display, despite numerous complaints. So, a former military officer and Christian decided to take action.
From The Post Millennial:
A Satanic altar erected in the Iowa Capitol building has been torn down and beheaded by a Christian and former military officer.
According to The Sentinel, Michael Cassidy pushed over and decapitated the statue of Baphomet, which was placed in the building by members of the Satanic Temple of Iowa after receiving permission, and discarded the head of the statue into the trash.
In a move that will certainly please many Iowa Christians, former military officer Michael Cassidy destroyed the Satanic display that was erected in the state Capitol building.
According to reports, he knocked over the statue of Baphomet and removed its head, throwing it in the trash. Cassidy said he did it to alert Christians to the “anti-Christian acts promoted by our government.”
He said that the world is trying to “legitimize Satan,” and that the founding fathers would not have considered “government sanction of Satanic altars” to be protected by the First Amendment.
Cassidy turned himself in to the police. The Satanic Temple of Iowa is pressing charges. And now, a major group is coming to Cassidy’s defense.
From The Post Millennial:
Turning Point USA has pledged a $10,000 donation to support the legal defense fund for Michael Cassidy…
“Michael Cassidy just beheaded a monument to Satan inside the Iowa State Capitol building. The Satanic Temple of Iowa is pressing charges and Cassidy is facing fourth-degree criminal mischief. Turning Point USA is proud to pledge $10,000 to his legal defense fund. We stand with Satan Slayer @VoteCassidy,” Kirk said.

Charlie Kirk, founder of the conservative group Turning Point USA, announced they were pledging $10,000 towards his legal defense fund. Cassidy will face a fourth-degree criminal charge.
It is unclear how a court will view Cassidy’s actions. But it is unlikely he will apologize or show remorse for an act against Satanism. Cassidy said his “conscience is held captive to the word of God, not to a bureaucratic decree.”
Many Americans may agree.
- A former military officer beheaded the Satanic statue in the Iowa Capitol building.
- He has been arrested and faces a fourth-degree criminal charge.
- Turning Point USA has pledged $10,000 to his legal defense fund.
