Satanic Temple are suing Netflix and Warner Bros claiming they copied the group's statue of the goat deity Baphomet.

They are claiming that the creators of Netflix and Warner Bros. joint effort the "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" have ripped off their Baphomet statue.

It is based of the same comic book series which spawned Sabrina The Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart and running from 1996-2003.

Canopy Growth Corp (CGC) Receives Average Rating of "Hold" from Brokerages
The last few days have been good for Canopy Growth Corporation (NYSE: CGC ), as its price has grew by 14.64% during the week. Technical Analysis of General Motors Company: ATR stands at 1.11 while a Beta factor of the stock stands at 1.27.

The statue, which the temple says cost about $100,000 to design and build, features a goat's head on a human body having both male and female traits as well as horns and a torch.

Baphomet is part of its campaign to "complement and contrast" a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma City on the grounds of religious freedom. While the organization says that the issue isn't the show's misrepresentation of Satanism, but the show's appropriation - co-founder Lucien Greaves alleges - of a monument designed and commissioned by the Temple.

The statue apparently appears in four of the 10 episodes on Netflix.

Doctors Hospital, SMH Earn 'A' Grades from Leapfrog Group
While the scope and methodology of the surveys have evolved over time, hospitals here generally seem to be improving. Some 16 facilities (24 percent) scored a B this time, and another 11 (more than 16 percent) got a C grade.

While the Satanic Temple might sound like your average run-of-the-mill satanists, the group is actually known for its political activism and use of satire against what it says is Christian privilege in the USA government. "Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series' evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity", the lawsuit states.

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

Greaves told United States broadcaster CNBC that Baphomet has "come to represent us as a people" and that the statue in Sabrina "dilutes and denigrates" their group.
