Satanic Temple Display Near Nativity Scene, Jewish Menorah In Illinois State Capitol Building

  • The Index of Forbidden Books banned the text for 200 years, but officials from the Satanic Temple told Patch they believe it still provides a valuable lesson.
  • But the handmade elements that surround the book, and that were created by Illinois congregation members, carry a similar meaning, officials said.
  • “The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public display in the state capitol so long as these displays are not paid for by taxpayer dollars,” the sign reads, according to ABC News.
