    Festive Satanic statue added to Illinois statehouse

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46453544

    A satanic group has added its own statue to a series of displays in the government building of the US state of Illinois to mark the festive season.

    Placed between a Christmas tree and a menorah, the four-foot sculpture depicts a snake coiled around an outstretched arm holding an apple.

    It's the first display sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the Temple of Satan.

    I guess it's their First A. right to display this. I personally honor Festivus (ex Seinfeld) & worship the Flying Purple Spaghetti Monster.

    Most excellent. Smells like freedom, and that's my favorite holiday scent.

    Fits right in with all the other pagan symbols...

    Yup. The cross was pagan Roman.

    How many chapters do they have in Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia I wonder?

    No statue of Cthulu?

    How disappointing.

    Well, since this state has gone to hell I suppose it's fitting...
