StrikitRich: Now, where is the Saturnaria display?
msP: They let my group (the Tallahassee Atheists) put up our sign because it was tastefully designed and at least merry. The satanist one involved a depiction of hell, so I can understand how it was deemed inappropriate for the season. FSM may not be relevant to the season either, but at least it's silly and lighthearted. The capitol isn't religiously discriminating, they just didn't feel like it was in the holiday spirit to put the satanist display up.Our group tossed around the idea of tongue in cheek and mildly offensive displays but that idea got dropped early because that's not what it's supposed to be about. Plus we knew we wouldn't be included.
Facetious_Speciest: Not to be overly critical, but I really think the best way for the Satanists to go for a display would be an angelic statue/painting/representation of Lucifer, looking all bad ass with a flaming sword held aloft. It covers the theistic Satanists, the Luciferian types that consider the Morningstar a Promethean symbol for human knowledge and freedom, and can't really offend anyone legitimately if it's a nice piece of art.
rethian: I'm loving how it's "Satanists" instead of Satanists, like no one could possible be for real about a religion based on "the Devil", but the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is just the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
miniflea: Im sure someone will come in and correct me, but satanism has always struck me as a reactionary religion for people who just want to do the opposite of the norm. Flying spaghetti monster is ridiculous but that's the point.
