- Just in Time for Christmas: Satanic Sculpture ‘Snaketivity’ Installed at Illinois Statehouse by Followers from Chicago Satanic Temple

It’s a gift from the Chicago branch of The Satanic Temple. Called “Snaketivity,” the work also has a sign that reads “Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift.” Nearby stands a sign in which the state offers a civics lesson — and explains it didn’t have much of a choice: “The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public displays in the state capitol so long as these displays are not paid for by taxpayer dollars. Because the first floor of the Capitol Rotunda is a public place, state officials cannot legally censor the content of speech or displays.
In the Illinois Capitol rotunda this month, several traditions are being celebrated. There’s a Nativity scene for Christmas, a menorah for Hanukkah, and then something a little different: an arm holding an apple, with a snake coiled around it.
One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration was the dramatic rise in activity by groups like the Church of Satan and the Satanic Temple. For some reason, they just felt comfortable enough from 2008 to 2016 to slither out of their pit and begin promoting their nonsense.
“For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5 (KJV)
I think watching President Obama support taxpayer-funded abortion, same-sex marriage, attacks on Christian bakers, and the executions at Benghazi they began to feel right at home.
