The Satanic Temple says in its lawsuit - which was filed in NY federal court - that it designed and commissioned its Baphomet and that Netflix's "prominent use of this symbol as the central focal point of the school, associated with evil, cannibalism and murder, blurs and tarnishes the The Satanic Temple Baphomet with Children as a mark of The Satanic Temple".

For that reason, the Satanic Temple has sued the streaming service and Warner Bros. for $150 million, The Blast reports, claiming the show copyrighted their design of the monument to Baphomet.

They go on to say, the "prominent use of symbol as the central focal point of the school associated with evil, cannibalism and murder blurs and tarnishes the TST Baphomet with Children as a mark of TST".

It is based of the same comic book series which spawned Sabrina The Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart and running from 1996-2003. The Satanic Temple says the show's statue is too similar to the real Baphomet that the organization built thanks to a successful Indigogo campaign in 2014.

The statue that appears on the Netflix show also features two children looking up reverently at the goat-man.

Households in England, Scotland and Wales on default tariffs - such as standard variable tariffs - stand to benefit. Any changes to the combination terms would be created to mitigate the impact of these developments.

"Among other things, TST designed and commissioned the TST Baphomet with Children to be a central part of its efforts to promote First Amendment values of separation of church and state and equal protection", the complaint explains.

"The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" is a supernatural show produced by Netflix.

Their website states the group strives "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice." .

When contacted by Deadline, Netflix said talk to Warner Bros, and WB unsurprisingly had no comment on this highway to Hell litigation.
