Multiple news sources are reporting that the Florida Department of Management Services emailed The Satanic Temple on Wednesday, telling the group its proposed display of an angel falling from heaven into an open fire was “grossly offensive.”
Co-founder Lucien Greaves says the group asked what was offensive, acknowledging they might be willing to alter the display, but they didn’t get a response Thursday.
Perhaps President Obama will allow The Satanic Temple to setup its display in the White House?
According to The Satanic Temple website:
“The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people. In addition, we embrace practical common sense and justice. As Satanists we all should be guided by our conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by our individual wills. We believe that this is the hope of all mankind and the highest aspiration of humanity. As an organized religion, we feel it is our function to actively provide outreach, to lead by example, and to participate public affairs wheresoever the issues might benefit from rational, Satanic insights.”
It seems President Obama and many in Washington would agree with the statement “[W]e all should be guided by our conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by our individual wills.” After all, individual will is what has driven God from our schools and the public square. It is individual will that has given us the immorality we witness daily.
Many believe it is individual will that drives public policy at every level of government, not the will of the people.
Perhaps Satan has found a home and his new zip code is 20004?
