Instead, it has opted to mock Christianity with a Festivus pole and a Flying Spaghetti Monster display. I’m sure Christians will not only manage to withstand the onslaught but draw sustenance from observing how adrift in banality a civilisation can become when it abandons the truth upon which it was founded.
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.
