Satanic Temple required protesters to pledge their souls to Satan as condition of entry

The Satanic Temple -- a pair of fun-loving, non-Satan-believing religious freedom activists -- unveiled the statue of Baphomet they plan to put on the Arkansas State Capitol's lawn to complement its existing Christian iconography.

Anyone was welcome at the event, but everyone who attended -- including the fundamentalist Christians who wanted to picket -- had to agree to "a lasting and eternal contract" that included irrevocably pledging their eternal souls to "The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies."

I agree that by signing this document under any name, given or adopted, actual or pseudonymous, I am hereby avowing my soul to Satan (aka Abbadon, aka Lucifer, aka Beelzebub, aka The Antichrist). I do so knowing that He (aka The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies) or any of His representatives may choose to collect my eternal soul at any time, with or without notice. I understand that my signature or mark representing any name, real or made up, upon these papers constitutes a lasting and eternal contract, and that there will be no further negotiations on the matter of my eternal soul.
