By the way, where did you get the name "Old Scratch"?

You’d need to ask Eliphas Levi, but he’s long dead. Levi is the one who designed the modernized image of Baphomet the statue is based on, though it was based on ancient occultic notions.
The question I want answer is this: Why did Congress commission a statue of George Washingon in the same Baphomet pose?
