Florida rejects group’s bid to install Satanic display


TALLAHASSEE, FLA. –  A Satanic group’s bid to put up a display at the Florida Capitol is being rejected by state authorities.

During this year’s holiday season several groups have allowed to put up displays in the rotunda because the area is considered a “public forum.”

A Nativity scene has been installed as well as a six-foot Festivus pole with beer cans around it. State officials this week also approved a display from a group called the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

But a request from a group calling itself The Satanic Temple has been denied.

In an email to the group Wednesday, the Department of Management Services called the proposal “grossly offensive.” The proposed display features an angel falling from heaven into an open fire.

      Oh, I don't know. It is, after all, FloriDUH. On the other hand, let them put it up. Those who like Old Scratch can venerate it and those who don't. like me, can ignore it. Freedom of expression is not so difficult. In fact it is the right to do anything, even if it is onerous or stupid. Nobody was ever killed by a statue or harmed in any way (unless it falls on you). Neither was anyone killed by being offended,
