Satanic Temple puts up display at Michigan Capitol

A nativity scene is displayed on the State House grounds in Lansing, Mich., Friday, Dec. 19, 2014. About 50 people sang Christmas carols and prayed to welcome the temporary nativity scene to the Capitol in a scene that likely wouldn’t have happened were it not for a group of Satanists from Detroit. The three statues of the infant Jesus Christ and his parents, Mary and Joseph, stand about three feet tall in a small wooden manger were placed just south of the east steps of the Capitol. The display was celebrated by speakers at a brief ceremony as not only a symbol of the season but of a symbol of the right to celebrate that season. (AP Photo/David Eggert)LANSING, Mich.
