GOP Lawmaker Unveils Nativity Scene on State’s Capitol Building Lawn Bcuz He ‘Can’t Let Satan Win'

The Great Duel of Our Times is on. The Eternal Battle Between Good and Evil has come to the fore; not in the valley of Megiddo, as we might have expected, but a bit closer to home. Specifically, Lansing, Michigan.

More specifically, on the lawn of the Michigan State Capitol building, where lawmaker Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) will stand in Christ-like defiance of the powers of darkness. He, the lone exorcist, will compel the spirit of darkness to leave by…putting up a nativity scene for Christmas.

Like many other states including Florida, Michigan has a policy of allowing religious groups to put up displays outside (or in Florid’s case, inside) the capitol building during holidays. Those displays require state approval and permitting, and have traditionally included displays representing a wide variety of religious beliefs.

Wait, no. That’s not true. It’s a nativity scene. Always has been. But the Forces of Evil from the (non-Satan-worshiping) Detroit chapter of the Temple of Satan have recently gained permission to erect their own display. A display they’re calling the “Snaketivity,” represented in the image below. And that display is apparently one more “-ivity” than was planned for the lawn of the Capitol this month.

1. Like California before us, we can now claim to be the Land of Fruits and Nuts

 

The fruits (apples, pears, peaches, cherries, berries, etc) are good for you, but the nuts can drive you crazy...

6. Reaganomics, Union busting, limited opportunities...

Hostile environment for lgbt, taxes raised on working class and poor, forcing women to buy "rape insurance ", and so many more deliberate things. Those things forced a mass exodus of true democrats and young people from Michigan for over 20 years. We lose good, progressive people constantly because they can't take it anymore, or can no longer make it financially here. And it keeps good progressive minded people from moving here. They are trying to turn us into " Michissippi".

3. Why do we allow anyone to put up their junk displays

inside our capitol building? Those places have a specific function and it has nothing to do with God, Satan, Odin, Krishna, or anybody else. Just put up some lights or something. Are people so full of junk food that they can't think straight and see the insanity in all of this?
