Satan worshippers display huge snake sign to oppose Christmas

The Satanic temple in Detroit set up a "Snaketivity Scene" featuring a snake offering a book called "Revolt of the Angels" as a gift

Like Christians putting up displays to gear up for Christmas, Satanists  in Michigan also put up displays to attract attention too.

The Satanic temple in Detroit  set up a "Snaketivity Scene" featuring a snake offering a book called "Revolt of the Angels" as a gift. The snake is wrapped around the Satanic cross on the 3-feet-by-3-feet display.

But capitol rules require that displays have to be taken down each night.

According to a Satanic temple spokeswoman Jex Blackmore, her group doesn't worship Satan but does promote individuality, compassion and views that differ from Christian and conservative beliefs.

Blackmore said that the "holiday season is a time of year that is celebrated in many different ways."

"Having our government endorse one singular viewpoint or method of celebrating the season is problematic when we have a diverse community of people in Michigan," she said.

It was learnt that plans of the Satanist temple caused a senator, Rick Jones, a Grand Ledge Republican, to erect a Nativity scene on Friday featuring baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary. He put it back up Sunday morning.

Jones said he was happy to "represent the light and not the darkness."

"They could have put theirs up in July or April or sometime. They didn't need to put it up in the Christmas season," Jones said. "That's OK. We're going to ignore them. I'm not afraid of the snake people. I'm sure that Jesus Christ is not afraid."

Blackmore told MLive.com her group is "really pleased to be part of what is perhaps a new holiday tradition at the Capitol."
