Satanic Temple Gets OK For Its December Display In Florida Capitol

Slate reports that Florida's Department of Management Services this week officially approved an application by the Satanic Temple to place a religious display of an angel falling into a pit of fire in the Rotunda of the state capitol building from Dec. 22-29.  In a press release issued Tuesday, Americans United for Separation of Church and State said it had threatened to file a lawsuit on the Temple's behalf. The state last year rejected the Satanic Temple's request under rules that designate the Rotunda as an open forum for private speech, but allow exclusions of displays that are grossly offensive.
