Ho, ho, ho? Is it some kind of bizarre joke that a group of Satanists have been given the go ahead, by state officials, to display a “Snaketivity” scene, at Michigan’s State Capitol’s north lawn, during Christmas week?
No, no, no.
John Truscott, a member of the Michigan State Capitol Commission, has told various media outlets that while he does not “appreciate a group trying to hijack a Christian holiday,” the commission approved the Satanic Temple of Detroit’s 3-foot by 3-foot display.
“We are restricted by the Constitution and bound by the Constitution to recognize their [Satanic Temple] First Amendment rights,” explained Truscott to MLive.
On their Facebook page, the Satanic Temple of Detroit writes: “Just as the Nativity represents a mythology of the birth of Christ, the Snake is symbolic of the birth of human enlightenment and liberation.”
