Satanists should put up an altar to "The Devil" in the rotunda...
at the state capital in Washington. If the government allows creches and menorah's and signs from atheists, they certainly should have to protect everyone's right to use that space to make their religious statements.

Such a display might drive home the point of why there should always be separation of church and state. I'm pretty sure it would get the legislature in Washington to act to remove all such displays.

As long as they are allowed, however, I applaud the atheists...and suggest the Satanists get in on the act.

3. I agree
anyone have a severed goat's head, candles, and some red paint?

:D

or hell, even better would be a TON of various made up religious symbols. Just overwhelm the place with an altar or symbol of your favorite god, be it a tree, a traffic light, a dildo, or whatever.

4. There should not be religious symbols on government property.
And maybe this whole episode will drive this point home.
