Temple of Satan Installs Holiday Statue in Illinois Statehouse

Entitled “Snaketivity,” the four-foot black statue depicts a snake coiled around an upraised arm that holds an apple.

The statue, positioned between a Christmas tree and a Menorah, is permitted as an expression of the Temple of Satan’s right to freedom of speech.

“Under the Constitution, the First Amendment, people have a right to express their feelings, their thoughts,” Dave Druker, the spokesman for Ilinois’ secretary of state, told the State Journal-Register.

Anti-abortion group Illinois Family Action publicly criticized the gesture, tweeting, “Satanic Temple monument was added to the #Illinois Capitol rotunda displays.

Recently, the Temple of Satan won $50 million from Netflix for a depiction of one of its religious works of art in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
