The Satanic Temple’s display was dedicated to the organisation’s own “holiday” named Sol Invictus.
Did you know they installed a Satan statue at the capital of Illinois today and there were worshipers there chanting “hail Satan” etc. how the hell does this go in a capital whatever happened to division of church and religion. This country was built on worship in God

@ILStatePolice how is a satan display allowed in the state capital during Christmas season? Why are you failing to keep Illinois freeways safe from violence gang behavior and shooting? How could an interstate be shutdown for a display of reckless behavior. Why am I paying taxes?

“The Capitol welcomes a diverse range of religions every year to display holiday statues during the holiday season, so we wanted to join in on that”, Satanic Temple of Illinois Minister Adam said.
“Because the first floor of the Capitol rotunda is a public place, state officials cannot legally censor the content of speech or displays. The United States Supreme Court has held that public officials may legally impose reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions regarding displays and speech, but no regulation can be based on the content of the speech”, the sign reportedly reads.
