Michigan Capitol To Host Satanic Display For Holidays

Earlier this month it was announced that Florida’s Capitol would host a satanic display - now the Michigan Capitol will follow suit.

According to MyFoxDetroit, the Satanic Temple in Detroit has created their own holiday display to be set up on the steps the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing starting on Dec. 21.

"We really try to provide rational insight where ever the satanic voice might benefit," said Jex Blackmore, director of the Detroit chapter of the Satanic Ministry.

"It's a very important time to remind legislators and to provide and empower people who have beliefs that aren't mainstream, this is an opportunity to have your voice be heard."

"This is strange, Christmas is being hijacked by Satan," Rev. David Bullock of Greater St. Matthew Baptist Church told the FOX2 news crew.

FOX 2 reports, the Satanic Chapter of Detroit started on this project after hearing about a plan for a church installing a nativity scene in front of the state capitol - a plan they say has been abandoned by the church.

After hearing about the Satanic Temple display, state Sen. Rick Jones is attempting to get plans for a nativity scene going once again.

"I’m a little outraged that a satanic group has decided to steal a Christian holiday," said Jones. "As a Christian, I think it’s important that we respond to this," mlive.com reports.
