Is Baphomet a god? Do you pray to Baphomet?

Baphomet… The Baphos…is the head of John the Baptist which was bronzed by King Herod. Red garnets were set into its eyes, and it was supposedly discovered and kept by the Templars, who would kiss it in their rites of chivalry. This was demonized by the Church, leading to “Baphomet” becoming associated with idolatry, perversion, and secret cults. The contemporary conception of Baphomet is almost entirely a result of people who think goat horns look cool but who otherwise can’t be bothered to read.
