A 6-foot-tall stack of empty Pabst Blue Ribbon cans, built to mark the sitcom-inspired Festivus holiday, returned to the Florida Capitol on Monday for a second year.
Florida’s Capitol will have a new holiday decoration this year. The Satanic Temple will be among its nativity scenes and secular presentations.
Once more, the Satanic Temple is trying to spread its version of holiday cheer at the Florida Capitol.
A Nativity scene, a Festivus pole and a chair holding fake pasta with eyeballs and an accompanying “provHerb” from the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster have been allowed to be shown as displays at the Florida Capitol.
Atheists, Christians, Jews, and even followers of the Flying Spaghetti Monster are all welcome to put up displays in the Florida Capitol rotunda, but the state’s Department of Management Services drew the line with a group of Satanists Wednesday.
The atheists are approved but the Satanists must sit and wait a little longer.
Controversy may be brewing at the Florida Capitol thanks to a new holiday display set to go up this week.
