Does it upset anyone else that the “beast” in Disney’s new remake of “Beauty and the Beast” is a goat-man with very long horns that bears quite a resemblance to Baphomet? In Disney’s 1991 animated version of “Beauty and the Beast”, the “beast” looked very much like a gentle lion. There were a couple of small horns poking out of his head, but those could have easily been mistaken as tufts of hair. But this time around, the “beast” has been depicted as a hybrid goat-man that has enormous goat horns sticking out of his head. And of course anyone that is familiar with the occult knows that the most famous goat-man in the entire world is Baphomet – the official symbol of the Church of Satan. Could it be possible that the similarity between this “beast” and Baphomet is more than just a coincidence?
In 1856, Eliphas Levi drew his infamous picture of a goat-man which came to be known as “Baphomet”. Since that time, his drawing came to be very closely associated with the devil, and eventually it was even adopted by the Church of Satan as their official symbol. The following comes from Wikipedia…
Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the later Tarot image of the Devil in the Rider-Waite design. The concept of a downward-pointing pentagram on its forehead was enlarged upon by Lévi in his discussion (without illustration) of the Goat of Mendes arranged within such a pentagram, which he contrasted with the microcosmic man arranged within a similar but upright pentagram. The actual image of a goat in a downward-pointing pentagram first appeared in the 1897 book La Clef de la Magie Noire by Stanislas de Guaita. It was this image that was later adopted as the official symbol—called the Sigil of Baphomet—of the Church of Satan, and continues to be used among Satanists.
Over time, the symbol of Baphomet has become increasingly prominent in the occult world.
In recent years, the Satanic Temple has made national headlines by attempting to erect statues of Baphomet in several major cities…
In 2014 The Satanic Temple commissioned an 8 1/2 foot statue of Baphomet to stand alongside a monument of the Ten Commandments at Oklahoma State Capitol  “respect for diversity and religious minorities” were cited as reasons for erecting the monument. After the Ten Commandments monument was vandalized plans to erect the Baphomet statue were put on hold as the Satanic Temple did not want their statue to stand alone by the Oklahoma capitol. The Oklahoma Supreme Court declared all religious displays illegal and On 25 July 2015 the statue was erected near a warehouse in Detroit, as a symbol of the modern Satanist movement. The Satanic Temple may take the statue to Arkansas where another 10 Commandments monument is proposed.
You can see photos of these statues of Baphomet here. So why does this new “beast” in “Beauty and the Beast” resemble these statues so closely?
In no other version of Beauty and the Beast has the “beast” ever been depicted as a goat-man.
So was this a conscious choice on the part of the producers of the film, or was it just an accident?
Up until now, the biggest controversy surrounding the film has been the fact that it is the very first Disney movie to feature an “exclusively gay moment”, and this prompted Rev. Franklin Graham and many other leaders to call for a boycott.
